We wanted a few days away from the Costa del Sol and selected Almohalla 51 based on TA reviews. Despite the small size of the town, Almohalla 51 competes with the best B&B s in more cosmopolitan locations. David and Myles have a created an oasis of understated comfort in Archidona. They have tastefully brought back to life two dwelling houses. A renovation that manages to maintain Andalucian rustic charm while still providing all the modern conveniences we now demand as travelers. Our bedroom was lovely and the public rooms and pool area are a great bonus. The breakfasts are excellent. But as always it is the little things you remember like getting met off the bus by David, being welcomed by a roaring log fire and the friendly, helpful emails ahead of our arrival.
