      In this stressful world we inhabit, there are times when just getting away from it all is the only thing required and that what this place does for us. The road there is just funky and I've uploaded a YouTube video of the journey from the main road, around the mountainside, to the villa. We're not allowed to put HTML tags on this page, so go to You Tube and search for The Road to Casa Cueva del Lute and you'll see it. The villa sits in an isolated spot, with just three or four other houses in view. In fact, there are neighbours to the back of the house (up the hill slightly), but on the three occasions we've been here, we've never heard or seen them, even though we know they have been at home. It's so peaceful, tranquil and quiet that it suits us down to the ground. The pool is the high-spot for us. Looking over to the town of Fortuna, I can close my eyes and still feel myself bobbing up and down in the waters, resting on a float with the sun beating down on me. While we're on the subject of outside, there's a newly built gazebo, which is great for keeping out of the sun, as well as three areas you could choose to sit: by the pool, in the courtyard or on the rooftop terrace. Inside the main house, there is a small lounge and kitchen and for me, this is the only thing I would say to be aware of. Although the house can take up to 9 people, the kitchen area can take two at most. It doesn't bother us in the slightest, but be aware that it's not the biggest kitchen in the world. That said, it has all the facilities you need - oven, hob, microwave, cooking utensils etc. The main house also has two good sized bedrooms, both with en-suite. There is also another patio off one of the bedrooms. The cave is fabulous for kids particularly, with three more rooms, a large dining room and further lounge area + small loo. There is another bathroom across the courtyard, which the people in the cave have easy access to, with a loo and a shower. All in all, there's everything you could want here in a relaxing holiday, with relatively quick access to the local towns and cities, although a car is essential. This is the kind of holiday we all need from time to time and we will certainly be booking again!!
