About Helen Kirk and Alan Chapman
Alan and I love this area. We have beautiful scenery and incredible national parks, gorges, crags, valleys, all accessible and enjoyable by people of all ages. Our Spanish friends and neighbours are wonderful and welcoming and we feel after 13 years that this is truly our home.
Helen Kirk and Alan Chapman purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Helen Kirk and Alan Chapman chose Álora
We couldn't resist this property, which has stunning views over the valley to El Torcal and la Huma mountain ranges. The old farmhouse has charm and warmth and we were fortunate to have permission to build a large property to the rear which is available for visitors. It is spacious traditional in style but has all the modern equipment. It is great people of all ages.
What makes this Villa unique
Very easy access, no long winding tracks - we wanted to be within easy reach of shops, restaurants and other people. And we now have a pretty good bus service between Alora and El Chorro - brilliant!

This was a comfortable villa in a great location for visiting the lakes and El Caminito. Exactly as described. Good sized pool. Helen and Alan couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommended.

Great views from top terrace; friendly hosts; very comfortable bed.

Lovely private spot in a beautiful area
We stayed with our small family of four for four weeks in this beautiful spot. It is remote, but about 3kms from the town of Alora. Enough restaurants around. The house itself is spacious and all modern appliances are available as is a great pool. The garden is beautiful and private and secure. The town and surroundings are beautiful. Especially El Torro, La Isla, El Torcal, but also the small town of Alora and somewhat bigger Ronda. Malaga is onlya train ride away. We enjoyed very much and regretted that we had to leave as the hosts are also such lovely people!
Blissful and idyllic and just what was needed.
Casa Los Olivos was everything you want in a holiday property from the comfort of the beds to the fabulous pool to cool off in, to the magnificent views from the various terraces to watch the sun go down or the sun come up. Helen and Alan are fabulous hosts and have really thought about everything to ensure you have a fantastic holiday. There is so much to see and do around Andalusia but the wonderful weather and comfortable surroundings at Casa Los Olivos ensured that relaxing, reading, swimming and eating was just as enjoyable.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday at casa Los Olivos, and thank you for such a lovely review. Hope to see you again. Very best wishes from us both
Lovely spacious accommodation in great setting
The accommodation is spacious and has everything you need, the pool is lovely, nice to relax beside after a hot day, Helen and Alan were so friendly and helpful giving us all the local information we needed. Alora is a typical Spanish town , great to walk around and great Tapas bars! El Chorro climbing was very accessible and the scenery was stunning. Lovely place, would recommend it to anyone.
We stayed in the house for a week in April. Helen and Alan provided a friendly greeting and a welcome pack of provisions that allowed us to refresh and relax without having to rush out to the shops. The house is very well equipped and provided everything we could possibly need. It’s a perfect home from home. Alan and Helen were always willing to offer friendly advice and recommendations for eating out or places to visit. We enjoyed their laid back approach and the lovely relaxing environment they have created at Casa los Olivos.
It was lovely to meet you all and we are so pleased that you had a good relaxing holiday. Thank you for choosing Casa Los Olivos and hope to see you again . best wishes, from Helen and Alan
VTAR/MA/01267. Between the Caminito del Rey at El Chorro and the lovely white hill town of Álora, Casa Los Olivos is a spacious Villa with pool.in the grounds of Finca Los Llanos. The Caminito del Rey (The Kings Walk) has been replaced and is now a safe but still exhilerating experience. El Chorro is famous for world class rock climbing, and Álora is an historic white hill town that has retained its charm with narrow streets, small shops and busy market days every Monday. There are restaurants, tapas and coffee bars, and wonderful views of the mountains surrounding the most beautiful part of the Guadalhorce Valley green all year round with orange and lemon trees. It also enjoys an excellent rail link to Malaga, Cordoba, Sevilla etc. and good motorway links to inland towns of Antequerra, Ronda, and Granada. The historic old town of Málaga is worth a day trip by train, the beaches along the Costa del Sol and the mountains and climbing at El Chorro are all within easy reach by road. Ideal location for exploring the countryside, towns and cities of Andalucia, and the Ardales Lakes are beautiful and close by. This area offers sport, scenery, lakes, mountains, the sea, great food, amazing transport links and wonderful weather.
