Jo's house

4 of 5
Just returned from Jo's property Easter 2017 loved our stay there such a well equipped townhouse you will want for nothing. Fabulous views from the terrace and so close to all the amenities. The restaurants and bars really are around the corner and all that we visited were great especially de Knapp. The town is very hilly though so please bear this in mind. The train station is very accomadating and cheap for the coast but it will take an hours journey from alora to torremolinos not including your time from your place of stay. We stayed in this property with the intention of looking at others while we were here and we can say that it was lovely and amazing value. We had a couple of issues that were quickly rectified. All in all a fabulous property

Lovely Cosy Character Property- Fantastic Views!

5 of 5
A beautifully restored Spanish property still full of character but includes all the 'mod cons' you need to enjoy a relaxing & enjoyable break. Set in a traditional Spanish village which offers everything you could want in the way of bars, restaurants, culture & history. The food welcome pack was very welcome, especially considering our late arrival time. We had many an enjoyable afternoon & evening on the fantastic roof terrace, relaxing in the hammock & drinking Rioja. Thank you for a very enjoyable break, we hope to visit again soon!
