We now have two new image galleries one for our house and the second for the village (pueblo)

The Torrox Townhouse - Mountain View Torrox is a small town overlooking the Mediterranean coast on the eastern side of Málaga city, 40 minutes drive from Málaga airport & 9kms west of Nerja.  This part of the coast is renowned for its micro-climate and Torrox boasts it has “the best climate in Europe”.   The town, which has its own beaches and holiday attractions at Torrox Costa only 2kms away, is a typical maze of small streets, alleyways and steps, all whitewashed and wreathed in flowers, clearly echoing its Arab origins. 
Our geographical location makes visits to Granada with the world famous Alhambra, (less than an hour on the recently completed motorway), Sevilla with it's cathedral, (two and a half hours), and Córdoba with the  mezquita-cathedral, (one and a half hours), all easily accessible. Málaga itself is only forty minutes away and has the Picasso and the Thyssen museums, a fine automobile and fashion museum, and more recently branches of the St. Petersburg Hermitage and Pompidou Centre Inland from Torrox there are many beautiful and largely unspoiled, whitewashed villages with Arab church towers and battlements waiting to be explored.

Internal PatioOur house is probably the oldest and largest in the historic centre of the pueblo and dates back to the 16th century.  The front door is only half a minute’s walk from the main square, the Plaza de la Constitución, with its cafés and restaurants but, at the back, the terraces overlook the river, open countryside and spectacular mountains. The house is known locally as the House of the Inquisition and is thought to have been the home of various famous people including Luis de Torres, the Jewish convert, who sailed with Christopher Columbus, as translator, on his first voyage to America.

The house is on three floors surrounding a central andaluz patio with open staircase.  It is a family home but has two self-contained apartments that are available for holiday letting when not used for holidays by members of the family itself.  People who have stayed in my Welsh cottage will know that these properties are very much part of our family life and not commercial letting facilities.  Each apartment has its own terrace with the spectacular view.  The  virtual tours are now some ten years old but they still give some idea of the house.

We have recently created a new Comments / Blog page where you can read reviews from previous visitors and even leave you own comments. n.b The comments page will open in a seperate window.
