Condo/Apartment
The Apartment at Casa Sampo is a fully self contained unit with private entrance and is perfect for families or couples who want a relaxing place to stay or for walkers and climbers who want to explore El Chorro, or walk the new Camino Del Rey. Whilst we live on site guests are assured of privacy, we are of course available for help should it be needed, for advice on local amenities or just a friendly chat. We are situated in a pretty quiet valley surrounded by Olive, Lemon and Orange trees. A great base for many outdoor activities, exploring rural Andalucia, the magnificent Camino Del Rey or the beaches of the Costa Del Sol but removed from the hustle and bustle of the Costa. There is ample space inside or outside to relax and unwind.

Whilst we live on site guests are assured of privacy, we are of course available for help should it be needed, for advice on local amenities or just a friendly chat.

A great base for many outdoor activities, exploring rural Andalucia, the magnificent Camino Del Rey or the beaches of the Costa Del Sol but removed from the hustle and bustle of the Costa. There is ample space inside or outside to relax and unwind. Enjoy the lovely views, cool off in the private pool or just relax under the large covered terrace. Good road and rail links nearby to make travelling around easy. Take the train to Malaga, a surprising city with its cafe culture, home of Picasso and lovely beaches all within walking distance of each other. Drive to historic Ronda, pretty Mijas or ancient Antequera, or explore the wonderful National Park of El Chorro with its beautiful turquoise lakes and the Camino Del Rey. Sit back and enjoy a barbecue and the stars, or the twinkling lights of local villages in the distance. For climbers/walkers during the off peak season (Oct-March) I offer good quality home cooked meals at an additional price, please ask about this when making an enquiry. Beautician can visit for facials, manicures etc. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTAR/MA/01187More

About the neighborhood
Alora is a traditional white washed village or Pueblo with its narrow streets and steep hills. The Castle perched above the town looks wonderful at night when floodlit. Pizarra although not so pretty as Alora is very Spanish and has excellent bars and restaurants, no English type restaurants such as McDonalds!!! There are many local festivals throughout the year, but some to note are the Easter Parades, Alora and Pizarra Ferias beginning of August, the festival of the Moon by candlelight in Carratraca beginning of September, and its big brother in Guaro, the Christmas lights in Malaga from beginning of December and New Years Eve in Coin which is a massive fancy dress street party.
Getting around
A car is essential for your stay at Casa Sampo but the roads are good and access to major routes are accessible. The local train service into Malaga and along the coast to Fuengirola is fantastic, we always take the train to Malaga and enjoy walking around this lovely city which is full of surprises!
