Casa Alora

I was staring at my host, Rita, completely captivated by her stories about how she viewed 50 houses before finding one where everything felt just right: the weather, nature, culture, gastronomy, the peaceful life and sweet people. After 30 years of service as a nurse, she had wanted to continue taking care of people and comforting them with the same amount of love except in a holiday setting. ‘No wonder you manage to take hospitality to the next level and really make people feel at home here!’ I made the Dutch owners Rita and her partner John laugh. ‘Right, we want people to feel at home here just like we do’, they nodded.

Casa Alora is located in the heart of the Southern-Spanish region of Andalusia, just forty kilometres away from Malaga and the incredible beaches of the Costa del Sol. Strolling along boulevards, soaking up the culture in medieval towns, taking a refreshing dip in the sea and exploring the inlands and natural reserves by scooter: this place has got it all. One thing you won’t need to worry about is what to eat for dinner. You can get some local tapas and do your everyday groceries in the nearby town of Alora.

Satisfied, I installed myself on one of the two large lounge patios with a view of the mountains. The surroundings, the view, the interior of my comfortable temporary home, excellent service: absolute perfection. I closed my eyes and thought to myself: ‘This is what it looks like when dreams come true.’

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
