Alora is well link - by bus and train. The train station is walking distance to the penthouse and the bus stop is just a couple of minutes away by foot. Alora is only 15 minutes away by car to El Chorro where you will find El Caminito del Rey and where you can pursue some water sports in the lakes and is a climbers' paradise while golf courses are 30 minutes away. Alora is stratigically central to all places of interest like Granada, Seville,...A luxurious 2 bedroom penthouse in a historic part of Alora, a typical working Spanish village in a whitewashed village where commercial tourism is no where to be found.

About the neighbourhood
Alora is located in a very fertile area of the Guadalhorce Valley and 15 minutes away by car to the El Caminito del Rey. A very green area because of the rich fertile soil so the area is full of citrus and olive orchards and the landscape is very hilly and breathtaking. It has a very mild climate in the winter and spring and very popular with cyclists, mountain climbers, water sports enthusiast and golfers. A great base for touring the region . . . to visit Seville, Cordoba, Granda, Ronda, Antequera and the City of Malaga.
