If you want to stay in an authentic Spanish cave house, this is it.
This is a rustic rural village accommodation with some modern touches. Every room is tiled and whitewashed, with new electric installations, new comfortable furniture, and thoughtful touches.
This guest house has 3 bedrooms, railroad style, separated by curtains. There is a small modern bathroom with a shower, one living space with a fireplace, and a new well-equipped eat-in kitchenette.
The caves maintain an average temperature in the neighborhood of 19ºC year round. There are few experiences like sleeping in caves, which aside from the constant temperature, have a romantic quality that sets them apart.
Aside from the caves you will have shared access to a large 45m² patio which overlooks the farmlands of the Alpujarra and mountains of the Gador and Sierra Nevada. We provide patio furniture and a charcoal BBQ to our guests.
The patio is typically our primary access to the our family home, but we give guests shared use of the patio when renting out the guest caves. Guest will have priority use of the patio. We use the back patio when we have guests and will do our best to give you privacy. (unless you want the company ;)
