About Alex Marquez (for English)
We are Santi and Pepe, married with 2 sons. We live in a beautiful white washed village named Alora. I am working as teacher for 3 to 5 year old children (Santi) and Pepe is working in our Villa´s stuff. Besides that, our son Alejandro is involved in our Villa for holidays, as he speaks English as well.
Alex Marquez (for English) purchased this Villa in 1992
Why Alex Marquez (for English) chose Álora
We bought the land first because of the location, very accessible to town and the lovely views of the town, Guadalhorce valley, mountains and castle. Then it took 2 years to construct and complete the house.
What makes this Villa unique
The location has breathtaking views of the castle and the countryside, there is no dirt track so no need to hire a four wheel drive, just any normal car will do. The poolside is so secluded and private.

My husband and three friends have just returned from this property and thoroughly enjoyed their stay, so much so that we and my brother and his wife have booked to return in early October. Pepe was more than helpful even cooking a wonderful Paella for them on their last evening. The "boys" have been visiting this area for 18yrs staying in different property,s and so know the area well, they thought this property was one of the best, having everything needed (except a dishwasher !)
Also maybe new pillows would be an improvement however the pool, outside area,s and the cleanliness overall was superb. Thank you for allowing us to stay in this beautiful place.
Thanks very much Gordon, for your opinion. I hope when you and your family come on October can enjoy of the villa and new pillows. I will see if I can have a dishwasher also.
See you on October.
Beautiful villa. Very clean and well equipped. Pepe couldn't have been more helpful.
The villa and pool were amazing. The photos don't do it justice. The pool is bigger than the photo shows. There is plenty to do in and around the area but we chose to stay at the villa and enjoy the peace and quiet. Pepe the owner is very friendly and extremely helpful. He even came and found us when we got lost trying to find the villa although Pepe did give us clear instructions. We are already planning our next visit. Car is not essential as everything is walking distance but the hills can be exhausting. Xxx
Lovely villa, quiet spot, very relaxing.
We were given a very good welcome from Pepe, and from Bob the cat! The villa is very comfortable and was spotlessly clean. The pool area is perfect and has lots of space for people to have a bit of solitude when needed. We also used the BBQ as well, which was great. We have been coming to Andalusia for the last six years so are very used to the area, but it was lovely to discover a new town (Alora) and some great rsstautants.
We made firm friends with the little black cat who eventually came and sat on our laps and had his tummy stroked - if we could have taken him home we would have.
I think my only gripe would be that maybe some sharp knives would be very useful - as a committed cook, even on holiday, I like to try cooking local foods but the equipment was a little sparse, maybe as well as the knives there could be one or two dishes that can be used in the oven.
Overall though, a very pleasant stay in a lovely villa.
Thank you very much for your opinion. We'll change the knifes and another things more of course.
Beautiful villa, lovely pool, quiet location. Lovely owner (Pepe). Fabulous family holiday
We pulled up and instantly loved this villa. My wife and I and our kids 9,6,3 were made to feel very welcome by Pepe. Very quiet and private (kids could splash around without worrying anyone). We had daytrips to Gibraltar,Marbella,Torremolinos and found that the villa was really handy for Malaga airport (25 minute easy drive). On our 3rd evening at the villa, we were so impressed that we booked the villa for 2018.
Pepe welcomed us and showed us around and was very approachable throughout our stay. Plenty of supermarkets within 15 mins drive. A car is definitely required in our opinion. Great experience throughout, from booking to arrival and departure.
Very comfortable rural villa well located for exploring Andalucia
We spent a very enjoyable week at Villa la Posta del Angel and have no hesitation in recommending the property. Pepe was charming and helpful, everything from the instructions on how to find the property to our departure day ran really smoothly. We chose Alora as it is well placed for exploring the region, Cordoba and Granada being around 2 hours away with Malaga and Ronda around an hour, so the villa is well located for exploring. The property was very clean and well equipped, the air-con being extremely welcomed at night in the very hot weather. The choice of sunny and shaded outside areas in front of and to the rear of the property are very useful. We used the barbecue every day and the seating areas next to the lovely pool were ideal for sunbathing and for drinks and snacks in the shade. The property has plenty of space and everything you need (though the ironing board has seen better days!) We would say that having a car is essential as the road to Alora is quite busy and I wouldn't have wanted to walk to town on it. Alora itself is quite sleepy but has a supermarket, a fantastic ice cream parlour and the view from the castle is spectacular. The access track in and out of the property is in a poor state of repair and the views are a little compromised by trees and metal poles but these are minor notes. All told we had a fantastic week in a lovely property with a delightful host and we would have no quibbles returning should we be looking for another stay in the region.
Thanks Andy, you are very kind . We will change the ironing board. We hope you when you want.
Santi & Pepe.
