Torrox Council is working on plans to create a 40-bedroom hotel in the Colina del Sol area, to “energise” the ‘old’ town.
THE project was first discussed a decade ago with a view to redeveloping old teachers’ houses and transforming them into a “charming” hotel and boutique.
The council has unanimously agreed to commission the preparation of a list of technical and administrative conditions to tender, and in effect get the ball rolling after 10 years of “episodes of squatting” at the site.
Mayor Óscar Medina told SUR the project is still in a “very embryonic phase”, but that the clear objective is to “create a charming hotel in the old town”.
He said it “will serve as a dynamic element to increase the tourist attraction of all this area, next to a large panoramic viewpoint of nearby water reservoirs”.
This area of the old town of Torrox is known as Las Palvas.
