The space
Beautiful home located in the Guadalhorce Valley (Alora). The entire property measures 10,000 m2. The house is spacious and has large porches with hanging vines full of grapes in summer.

Cool off by pool in summer or enjoy our wood fireplace in winter. The house is surrounded by a large orange grove. We also have other fruit trees in the grove. We invite our guesses to enjoy any seasonal fruit from the grove. The house has a quiet Moorish style interior patio.

The house retains its original beamed ceilings. The wood doors, windows and tiles are original in most of the house. Also antique pieces of furniture restored by Maria (the owner).

The heart of the home is the kitchen, connected it to a bright courtyard with natural light, perfect for reading. Lots of plants and and tropical fish tank that children love.

From the porch you can enjoy the sight of our white wash town (Alora). also we have views of the "El Hacho and Blue Mountain Sierra Huma¨. Walk 5 minutes up hill behind the property and you will enjoy a postcard view the Gualdalhorce river valley.



One of my (David) favorite sports is the mountain bike. I am sharing some of my photos with you.

Alora, a land full of history and rural life :)

This are the fruits in our grove for you to enjoy:

ORANGES, from mid-October to early July.
CLEMENTINES, from mid-October to late December.
GRAPEFRUITS, month of December and January.
LEMONS, from January to June. And over the months of October-November.
FIGS, months of August, September and October.
LOQUATS, May.
PLUMS, July.
POMEGRANATES, October and November.
APPLES, July.

We usually have a spring-summer vegetables garden with tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, zucchinis and cucumbers from May to August.

Other things to note
The months of July and August we only rent for weeks.

Location

Álora, Andalusia, Spain

Alora is a historic white wash town that has retained its charm, with narrow streets, small shops and a very busy street market every Monday.
There are restaurants, tapas bars, cafes, and wonderful views of the mountains surrounding the Guadalhorce Valley. The whole area remains green throughout the entire year due to the orange and lemon groves.
The Costa del Sol beaches are 40 miles away, about 35 minutes drive. Alora is an ideal location for sightseeing. The whole area offers excellent opportunities for walking, photography, bird watching, painting, and a wide range of sports and activities such as hiking, biking, climbing, horse riding and water sports.

La Garganta del Chorro is an amazing natural phenomenon belonging to a natural park about 12 miles from Alora.

Great variety of birds makes this area a "Twitchers" Paradise. Located in the heart of Malaga, on the banks of the river Guadalhorce, among orange and lemon trees. Also very close to where Ardales Trinity Caves Gund known for his paintings. Other surrounding cities are Antequera, Ronda and Ardales. All of them full of history and monuments. Cities like Cordoba, Seville and Granada are about a couple of hours drive. Our location, which has direct access to the local road A-330, makes a great base for you to travel around Andalusia.
