We stayed September 2007 in the Casa El Naranjo in Alora, Spain, after a journey through France and Spain. Casa El Naranjo is situated in the hills of Andalusia near the small village Alora.
The Casa is a beautiful restored Andalusian house which gives not only space to families with children, but is also suitable just for couples. The apartment we rented in Casa El Naranjo was very well kept and clean as well.
Every evening we have enjoyed the delicious diners who were served on the terrace of Casa El Naranjo. All for a nice price. If you like a bottle of wine with your diner: also for a nice price you can have one.
When you like to explore the environment it is advisable to rent a car for your own. There is a possibility for public transport, but with your own car you reach real nice places which can not be reached by train or bus.
We have made several bicycle tours, guided by the host Rik. An experience which is recommendable. Specially when you like to ride bicycle, the environment is tremendous. Easy cols but also difficult cols are available for your thrills. Be aware you inform Rik about your skills; whether you are an experienced biker or not.
As far as we know, there is up to now no possibility to rent a mountain bike or racing bike. So, you have to take you own bike with you. When you are travelling by air plane you can use a so called bike case. You can rent it or you can buy it. When you are travelling by car you can mount your bikes easily on your car.
For the bikers among us it is also recommendable to train biking in Andalusia in the winter period. The temperatures in Andalusia by day are in the six coldest months between 15 and 22 Centigrade. So perfect biking weather.
So, also for the sportsmen among us, Casa El Naranjo is the place to be!
