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.
