Great apartment

5 of 5
We loved this apartment. Perfectly placed in the middle of alora it served as a good base for our holiday. It was spacious, clean and had all the mod cons you take for granted at home - there was even a pod coffee machine and some cold beers in the fridge which went down very well! The air con is a god send and is a must in alora in the summer months. The bedrooms are comfortable and have plenty if storage space. Our host Antonio even purchased a travel cot just for our stay - above and beyond in my book. The terrace is a perfect space to relax on a evening with a good sized gas bbq that is very easy to use even if the instructions are in spanish. Our family really enjoyed relaxing and looking out onto the campo and mountains beyond - the view is simply stunning! The only thing that was missing was a plunge pool to cool off in the heat but we made do with a cheap paddling pool and the shower! The parking space is an added bonus as parking in alora is a nightmare! All in all we highly recommend staying here - alora has very few rental properties but we would say this is top of the tree.
