(Granada) Spain


La Cueva came into existence by joining a ruined house,a very neglected chickenpen and a total ruin. We renovated everything with lots of dedication and love to the detail,trying to incorporate local materials like wood, stone, reeds from the river, esparto(local woven grass) and terracotta. The result is very rustic, with lots of Moorish charme, but at the same time extremely comfortable with all the amenities.
Spoil yourself a few days and enjoy life!!
La Cueva is situated in a small, hidden alleyway in a very quiet part of the village. Enjoy the fantastic views of the surrounding mountains, the Guajar valley and across to the Moorish ruins. Start the various hikes directly from your doorstep. Enjoy the typical Andalucian countrylife, totally untouched by tourism! Watch or help the locals peeling the almonds or harvesting the olives, avocados or custardapples. Sit in the local bar and let the rural life go past you!
Sit up on the roof terrace with your favorite drink and enjoy the sunset, or the rise of the moon or count the many shooting stars, always with a secret wish, of course. Just lean back, relax and enjoy!


El Sol is a house for up to 4 people. From the cool patio you enter the fully equipped kitchen with the open plan eating area. The used materials and colours make everything very rustic and wonderfully friendly. A wide and bright staircase leads up to the splitlevel livingroom. In one part is the highquality pull-ou-couch and in the other a cozy Moorish style sitting area. For the cooler month we provide a glassfronted woodburner. We also have Sat/TV, a radio/Cdplayer and a small library. All the furniture, windows and doors have been made by a carpenter and are of high standart.
The bedroom offers 2 beds of 90x190cm each and leads into an exceptionally cozy and original bathroom. Linen and towels(except for beach and pool) are provided, in summer we also have fans and mosquitonettings above the beds, to guarantee a peaceful sleep. Outside, the Maurish patio has two sittingareas and a fountain. Some stairs lead up to the Jacuzzi-Pool with waterfall, everything set into a cave. Very original! Here you also find another bathroom with shower and toilet, and also the washingmachine with iron and ironingboard. A spiralstaircase goes up to the 100m2 roof terrace with two shady pergolas, sunloungers, hammocks and a BBQ. From here you enjoy magnificent views over the surrounding mountains.
Of course you can rent both houses together (La Estrella and El Sol), which would offer comfortable space for up to 9 people.
