About the property

Comfortable, spacious 2 bedroom Cave House in a stunning location

Welcome to real Spain, a beautiful and stunning undiscovered part of Andalucia, our cave apartments are set in a peaceful location but not too far from anything you may need. Experience cave house living in our quality cave apartments in the heart of the Altiplano de Granada, Andalucia, Spain.

Both our apartments sleep four comfortably and offer a swimming pool and plenty of alfresco space.

Cuevas Lince is a traditional cave apartment which has one large double bedroom and a bedroom with bunkbeds aimed at the family market, It has a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, toaster, fitted oven/ hob and dining area at your disposal for those family evenings sitting watching our beautiful sunsets.

The apartment also has a spacious living room bathed in natural sunlight and for those winter nights when the sun goes down sit in front of your very own wood burner with a glass of wine.

During those hot summer days and nights there is no need for air conditioning in a cave house, as cave houses stay at a constant temperature of 18ºC all year round.

About Viv and Ian Wickham

In our little family there is Viv, Olivia and me, Ian. We have always been extremely hard workers in whatever we have done over the years. Viv and I have both been retail managers for huge companies. We have also spent seven years running public houses & restaurants. So both of us are heavily committed to customer service, which we both bring to our new venture.

Viv and Ian Wickham purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Viv and Ian Wickham chose Los Carriones

We had a dream… Ten years ago after watching a programme on Channel 4 called “No Going Back” we decided to attempt to buy a chalet in Switzerland and run it as a catered ski chalet. We as a family have been keen skiers for many years – in fact our daughter Olivia has been on skis since the age of 3. After several inspection visits and meeting with UBS in Sion, we made the decision that the figures just did not add up, so it was put to bed. Until nine years later when resurrection came through an internet search and away we went again!

It took about six months of internet searching and a couple of visits to find the the place where we are now in the “Altiplano de Baza” or Spanish lake district – a stunning and more contrasting a place you will never find with skiing an hour down the road at the Serra Nevada, the most Southerly ski resort in Europe.

The property was a run down partial cave house, which has now been totally reformed but keeping it’s rustic Spanish feel. If you like the outdoor life and the beauty that Andalucia has to offer, come and join us – you will be guaranteed a warm welcome…

The beauty of the Altiplano de Granada is experienced through it’s landscapes and vistas, lakes and mountains, waterfalls and gorges, stunning scenery, hot summer sunshine mixed with cool refreshing breezes.

Traditional hill-top villages, which still offer free tapas with every drink, and of course the famous “Badlands” on your doorstep.

Walking and Cycling:-

There are a number of way-marked routes in the area, which cater for those just wanting a leisurely stroll through to experienced mountain walkers. The routes range from forest tracks, ancient drover’s trails and footpaths, to goat and animal trails.

For the cyclist, at one end of the scale you can take it easy on the flat, exploring the wonderful plateau of the Altiplano de Granada. At the other end of the scale you can take on the climbs and cols of the surrounding mountains.
