The house

Almohalla 51 is hidden away without being isolated…

The house borders the wooded hillside that rises above the town of Archidona but is just moments from the main plazas, bars and restaurants.

Behind the whitewashed façade there are communal sitting rooms with a wood burning stove, shaded patios, landscaped terraces and a plunge pool. Outside the seating areas are perfect for breakfasting on freshly prepared fruit, juices and eggs or enjoying sundowners. The upper terrace and pool have beautiful views across the town, the sierra and up to Archidona’s famous Sanctuary of the Virgin of Grace. There’s also the ‘Gallinera’, a converted barn that’s perfect for hiding away with a book or making the most of the views.

Almohalla 51 is naturally temperature controlled throughout the year, but there is also heating and cooling from fans for different times of the year. Hot water is provided by solar power. Where possible we used original or reclaimed materials and furniture to retain the character of the properties and minimise our environmental impact. Check out this nice little video about Almohalla 51.

Due to the number of stairs Almohalla 51 is unsuitable for those with mobility issues. Also, please note that children under 14 are not accepted at Almohalla 51 unless the whole house is booked – see Rates and policies for more details.
