It really is home from home. Everything to hand, we luxuriated in a beautiful house and garden.

5 of 5
Stunning location, beautifully kept garden and pool, numerous places to sit, eat, relax. The house was immaculately clean with everything to hand, including kitchen spices and oils. We arrived to a beautiful hamper of fresh fruit. Helen and Stephen responded quickly during our stay if we needed any help with anything. The pool was enjoyed by all of us especially our youngest daughter. A good size for doing short laps or just for keeping cool! Garden is a plantsmans paradise! House was cool and comfortable, kitchen well equipped with everything you could possibly need; ensuite bathrooms for every bedroom, even the single bedroom, were really convenient. Quiet location away from the hubbub of the town, countryside sounds of the cooing doves and goats bells as they were herded up the hill; smells of jasmine wafting in the breeze, added to the whole unforgettable holiday.

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
