Why Jay Sullivan chose Álora

Alora is the perfect Spanish gem. It is a traditional whitewash town with all the amenities at hand and a station that can take you to the beach and city within 40 minutes.

What makes this cottage unique

Casa Bliss is the perfect location. We fell in love with the view and the pure tranquility. The 200 year old finca has now been restored to its former beauty with all the mod cons including air conditioning, ceiling fans and private terraces with barbeques and magnificent views. We have a huge swimming pool to dip and cool off or have a leisurely swim and the most wonderful established tropical gardens to hide away and daydream. The views of Alora village are picturesque during the day and are illuminated by the lit up castle at night.

Relaxing, exhilarating,comfortable & enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, comfortable and quiet and the kitchen contained all necessary utensils.

The owner was hospitable, curtious and caring and met all individual needs.

The veranda with its wonderful mountainous and country view was glorious to sit out in, especially early in the morning.

The peace and tranquility was only interrupted by the sound of birds singing and goats ba...ing!

An excellent pool with poolside shower, in an idyllic setting.

Restaurants and shops 5 mins drive away.

Can't wait to return!!

Thanks G

Stunning Place, Amazing Management, Ideal Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible place! I can't recommend it highly enough.

Well maintained, clean, and lovely management. If you want a chilled, relaxed getaway - there is no where better than Rose Cottage.

The owner couldn't be more hospitable, and lovely company to be around. Even shared a bottle of wine on the stunning terrace one evening whilst talking about life in Spain v England.

I'll be going back! Thanks for the most amazing time! x

Paradise and pure Bliss :-)

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a magnificent weekend getaway at Casa Bliss Alora. I have holiday blues and really can not wait to book again. Rose cottage is full of comfort and extra's for a hot climate, including air condtioning and ceiling fans. The cottage is very spacious and comfortable with a fully functioning kitchenette, cooker, toaster, microwaver and utensils... a large bathroom with a powerful hot shower. Rose cottage has a huge private terrace with bbq that we used each evening and a view of the ever inviting pool, gardens and Alora town in the distance.

An absolute wonderful retreat perfect for re-charging ...

Thank you so much for a wonder break, oh and the delicious welcome pack on arrival :-)

Secluded & stunning

  • 5 of 5

I went to Casa Bliss with the sole purpose of catching up on sleep, relaxing in the sun and sampling the best of local culture and I got that and so much more. The owner was so welcoming & friendly - no request was too much to ask and she was more than happy to help me, day or night. The cottage itself was amazing, very comfortable and looked just like the pictures. I had an amazing time at Casa Bliss and I would go back in a heart beat. Thank you Rosie for making your home my home away from home in the sunshine.

Oh wow! An Absolute Gem.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned feeling so relaxed and refreshed from the lovely casa bliss. Serene, tranquil setting with gorgeous pool. We stayed in the bluebell room with air con and all mod cons, complete luxurious décor gave a feel good factor. The wonderful host Rose made us feel so welcome, we actually spent most of our time relaxing by the pool, completely immersed in the peace and natural beauty. Stunning holiday, thank you so much Casa Bliss!

Beautiful secluded hideaway

  • 1 of 5

Lovely location. Should have been perfect. However the management was less than good. Room not ready despite arriving late evening. No welcome pack. Felt we were intruding. Clean clean but no hot water. Resolved the following day. However it would have been nice if the owner had checked that everything worked. No air con. No cooking facilities. I expect to be able to get a bit of toast in the morning. Maybe the location is fab but everything else is not. Disappointed. Don't think the lady there can cope but I'm sur she did her best. Was glad to leave. Disappointing and will put me off booking with owners direct again
