A house with great potential

  • 3 of 5

We spent a wonderful weekend in this pretty and central house in Álora - a village that has remained astonishingly "normal" considering the quantities of foreign residents in other Andalusian towns. Fantastic landscapes within a one-hour radius are to be explored, especially of course the recently reopened Desfiladero de los Gaitanes.

The house itself is a very well equipped homebase, its outstanding feature the roof terrace with fantastic views and the advantage of the kitchenette right next to it and a barbecue. However, shade for the daytime (it was already very hot in the beginning of May) and some outdoor light for the evening (it was difficult to improvise something to be able to see our food) would be nice. Be aware of the very top step when going down - it can be very treacherous.

There is plenty of space, bedroom 3 overlooks the inner courtyard (not obvious from the ad) and is the quietest. The plumbing is somewhat fragile, we had the bad luck of a leaking shower which the host incorrectly attributed to careless use of the shower curtain. 15 minutes of mopping up a big quantity of water put a damper on our last (romantic) night ...

However, I am sure these minor inconveniences are easy to get fixed, as this house really has the makings for being an ideal accomodation.
