Cave holidays

Ok, so staying in a cave may not have crossed your mind before, but cave houses are a truly unique and exciting accommodation option. Located mostly in those areas where the Moors left their mark, they’re traditional, stone-built properties which exude ancient character and charm. Of course, some are the remnants of old wine cellars or the basements of historic houses, but they all have one thing in common: surrounded by ancient stone and nestled snugly underground, they’re a great choice for those looking for that home from home with a difference. We have a number of cave houses available for rent, located in Spain, Turkey, France and further afield. Whether you fancy a modern cave house equipped with all the latest luxuries, or a traditional cave house decorated with antique fittings and furnishings, you’re guaranteed to find your perfect property when you browse through HomeAway. So why wait? Read on for our top 5 cave house rental retreats, and start planning your holiday in that unusual property!
