Flora and fauna
The coast of Malaga is home to the greatest biodiversity in the Mediterranean and in the European seas. Due to the varied landscape consisting of beaches, cliffs, estuaries, swamps and dunes, as well as some important ecosystems such as corals in the rocky terrain, there are many different plants and animals of all kinds: land, sea, sedentary and migrant.
Around 60 different plant communities have been distinguished. They consist of varied emblematic, unique, protected or endangered species (around 80).
The Montes de Malaga are considered the lungs of the surrounding area and were reforested with pine trees to avoid floods, as these floods occurred pretty often since they chopped down the large forests during the middle ages after the Castilian conquest, as they wanted to increase the area of cultivation. There are holm oaks, cork oaks and gall oaks, the three species of trees that were there originally.
The typical animals that you can find in Malaga include owls, foxes, squirrels and badgers. Being a port city in the south of Spain on the Costa del Sol, you can also experience seeing, and often touching, the dolphins - residents of the Mediterranean Sea.
The Laguna de Fuente de Piedra Natural Reserve, Málaga, is the largest lagoon in Andalucia. It houses the largest colony of flamingos in the Iberian Peninsula and the second largest in Europe, which can be admired during the nesting period along with many other species, such as the tern, the laughing and slender-billed gulls, the Kentish plover, the avocet or the stilt.
EXPERIENCE THE LOCAL LIFE
Inland Andalucia is an experience rich in Spanish culture with fiestas, tapas, white villages, fantastic nature and walking trails of unimaginable beauty. The stay itself is located in the small town of Alora. From a distance, it is a typical pueblo blanco, a whitewashed village nestled between three rocky spurs topped by the ruins of a magnificent castle which has an interesting history. A visit to the village, which consists of a series of very steep slopes and attractive cobbled streets, is well worthwhile. The whitewashed streets are lined with lemon trees and converge on a square on the lowest level, overlooked by the impressive seventeenth century Church of La Encarnación which was built during the Catholic era of rule on the site of a former mosque.
From the square, climb to the castle on foot, or go by car, to the cemetery from where you can enjoy the splendid panorama of the Guadalhorce river basin. Among the tombs there is a small Gothic chapel. Monday is market day when the village becomes a lively mass of stallholders and shoppers. Alora's economy is based on agriculture, in particular the cultivation of tropical fruits, olives and grape vines.
The cuisine of Alora uses the traditional Mediterranean ingredients of olives, almonds and citrus fruits. There are some delicious local dishes, including sopa porota, based on a garlic broth with croutons and a revuelta of scrambled eggs with spring onions and vegetables.
Alora's main fiesta is the flamenco festival which is held annually in June. Another popular traditional event is the Romería de la Virgen de las Flores which takes place in the middle of September and is one of the best places to enjoy, first-hand, the traditional verdiales.
DIVE INTO THE DIGITAL NOMAD SCENE
The property is located in a more rural and remote region, so your best option to really endeavour in the digital nomad scene is to take advantage of the stay itself. Get to know the other guests and organize group activities and trips - it’s up to you to make real connections!

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
