The property is set in a peaceful location in one of Torrox's winding, narrow streets. Car access to the property is not advisable but there is parking 5 minutes away. There is a regular bus service to Torrox Costa for those choosing not to hire a car. The property is 5 minutes walk to the lively square, the heart of the village with restaurants, bars, shops, and banks. Our traditionally furnished house is on 4 floors and the roof terrace offers fantastic views over the village and towards the mountains.

The house is a spacious 1 bedroom traditional village townhouse , which can sleep up to 3 people.
