La Casa de la Esquina (The Corner House)

Location, Location, Location  -  Opposite the 300 year old church, behind the ancient Moorish castle and at the heart of the old quarter, this large, traditional townhouse overlooks La Plaza de La Despedia, the old square in Álora. Step outside into life in this fascinating town, step back in and relax in a comfortable and spacious house –  then enjoy the wonderful views from the roof terrace over the square, the rooftops of the town and to El Hacho, the local mountain. The old square is named after the farewell of Christ to Mary, enacted here each Good Friday and typical of the traditional Andalucian life it reflects (more about La Plaza de La Despedia)

A fascinating Andalucian town with a wealth of history (more about history) Álora is a dramatic small town surrounded by mountains and set astride three steep hills, the most prominent dominated by an old Moorish Castle (above - the house is behind the castle). 

For the most part Álora is still a pueblo blanco (white-walled village) with narrow whitewashed streets, steep slopes, churches, lemon trees and squares where people gather. However, it also has a more modern quarter with reasonable and interesting shops and many bars and restaurants. This very Spanish town is deep in the heart of Andalucia but only 30 minutes by road from Malaga airport, so very convenient for travel from the UK.

The neighboring countryside is also wonderful, a fertile valley (Valle del Sol) dominated by the dramatic mountains of two natural parks, El Chorro and El Torcal. It's perfect for walking, cycling and many other activities or, if you prefer, simply wandering around sightseeing. The region has many areas of outstanding natural beauty, villages and towns to explore and sites of historic interest and importance to visit. We hope you come, you'll love it!
