Alora runs through the valley of the Guadalhorce River, nestled between the hills, among orange groves, lemon groves and open countryside. It offers spectacular scenery such as Gaitanes Gorge, the mountains of the Sierra de Huma or running river water. Alora is a land of ancient Mediterranean civilization; Neolithic axes have been discovered in the Hoyo del Condeand Sabinal, with Roman and Arabic artifacts also having been found in the area.
The Municipality of Alora is situated northeast of the Guadalhorce valley region, 40 kilometres from the capital of the province and 78 kilometres from Ronda. The village is located about 200 meters above sea level. Average annual rainfall is 580 l / m 2 and average temperature 16.6 ° C.
The history of Alora goes back to prehistory in the Hoyo del Conde, a little over a mile from the city. The ecological environment (hunting, water, natural protection) favoured these lands until the Tartars and the Phoenicians discovered the great commercial potential of the area. Phoenician artifacts were found under the foundations of the castle, the Romans later took advantage of these fortifications. The Roman presence has left important marks on these lands, from the mile-stone that marked the Roman road which was called Municipium Iluritanum (year 79 BC) to various remains which prove that Alora was under Roman law and occupation, with the name of Iluro.
Alora, which knew a great prosperity at this time, had military rulers who paid tribute to Rome, traces of these high-ranking families could later be found in Rome itself. During the Visigothic period the core of the fortress was built, and later expanded by the Arabs, soon after this Alora came under the rule of the Iberian peninsula. (During this period the rebellion of Omar Ben Hafsun took place, and the proximity of Bobastro (his stronghold) had a significant effect on the population of these lands).
Throughout the Middle Ages the Christian kings tried in vain to take the village of Alora, which resisted each and every attack. In one of these attacks, in 1434, the Governor of Andalusia, Don Diego de Rivera, was killed at the foot of the ramparts, tragic news that was responsible for spreading the ballads known as the Romance of Alora that is reproduced in a plate of Castillo. The square, and so the village, fell to the troops of the Catholic king in 1484. The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries gave remarkable prosperity Álora, favoured by the presence of many distinguished people who lived or visited the village. In 1628, Alora was separated from the municipality of Malaga "forever" in the minutes signed by Felipe IV.

Couple from Portslade, United Kingdom Jul 2015

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one week in July. The villa is amazing. The outside area has everything you could ever want to relax and chill.
The outdoor hot tub is obviously a lovely addition. The inside has been done very nicely and perfect for a couple.
I have been staying in villas in different countries for the last 15 years and can honestly say that for the money this would be hard to beat. I would even say this would be perfect for a honeymoon retreat.
Will definitely be booking again for next year.
