Overview

About the property

5 beds (1 double bed - 1 living room with 3 single beds)

Grotto of 80 sqm, typical authentic Andalusian layout, comfortable, nicely decorated, naturally warm all year round from 19 to 22 degrees, located in a quiet setting, with a panoramic view of the mountain and the city, ideal to spend an exotic vacation.

It consists of a very bright independent kitchen, a dining room, a lounge-flat screen TV with fireplace (decorative) and 3 single beds in the bottom of the room, a room with a large bed (cot on request), a bathroom / WC, a large courtyard / parking with garden furniture and to park your vehicle.

1 km from the city center, 30 minutes from the mountains, 30 minutes from the water sports center, 1 hour from the sea by expressway.

Some non-exhaustive activities to practice:

- Visit the architectural heritage of Guadah-Haix (meaning 'River of Life') on foot, aboard the small train of the city or by horse-drawn carriage and its surroundings as well as the unmissable Granada with its Alhambra palace and its many riches.

- Attend a flamenco show in the Sacromonte district (Granada) or in an old oil mill near Guadix,

- Walks and hikes (pedestrian, equestrian, mountain bike ...) in the Alpujarras Granadina and Almeriense located on the slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain.

- Discover regional handicrafts (pottery, ceramics, carpets, weaving, plaited or agave spacecraft, chairs, wrought iron, oil mill, culinary specialties...)

- Swimming Negratin lake in an idyllic, artificial lake of Peza with turquoise waters near Guadix

- Or simply sit on the terrace of a café to savor a tinto de verano (a local Guadix drink) accompanied by delicious tapas ...

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The house is located at the edge of Guadix so that shops and restaurants are not close. But the view from the terrace, the romantic house with everything you need and the "back garden of strange rocks to have an evening walk more than overcompensated this. Moreover, at the end we discovered that leaving the house and walking left and left along the road you are in an older troglodyte neigbourhood (with a viewpoint) where we noticed a bar which is not so far away. Recommended!

Vacances réussies et à renouveler

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de superbes vacances dans cette cueva !

La maison est belle, insolite, bien équipée et calme.

Comme la région est riche en découvertes nous étions en vadrouille toute la journée et le soir c'était un plaisir de retrouver l'ambiance chaleureuse de notre jolie grotte.

En partant après une semaine qui a défilé à toute vitesse nous sommes restés sur notre faim. Il faudra revenir pour d'autres randonnées dans les parcs naturels de la région.

Notre regret est de ne pas avoir trouvé de cartes détaillées pour la randonnée à Guadix.

Nous avons aussi apprécié le soin avec lequel la propriétaire organise le séjour des locataires ( plan d'accès, info utiles , conseils ...) et merci à Loly pour son accueil.

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup, je suis comblée de savoir que votre séjour fut à la hauteur de vos espérances. C'est vrai qu'une semaine passe très vite et ne permet pas toujours d'explorer toutes les richesses de cette jolie région. Ce sera toujours avec grand plaisir que nous vous accueillerons à nouveau à Guadix, la porte de la cueva vous reste grande ouverte. Encore merci à tous les deux pour votre sympathique appréciation et peut-être à bientôt ! Cathy

Découverte insolite

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécier notre court séjour chez vous.

Sauf la qualité du lit (un peu trop étroit et court en longueur) et le frigo qui fait un peu trop de bruit la nuit (empêche de dormir).

Très bon accueil de Loli.

Cordialement

Daniel et Pilar

Owner's Response: Je vous remercie d'avoir bien voulu poster votre appréciation. Toutefois je tiens à préciser que le matelas a une dimension tout à fait classique : 140 x 190 cm. En ce qui concerne le réfrigérateur (achat en 2011), il s'agit tout simplement de le déplacer très légèrement pour éviter toute vibration. Bien cordialement,

formidable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour et les ingénieurs des marées chaussées ne seraient pas venus nous trouver pour nous dire que les travaux de la route bloqueraient la chaussée pour le mois, nous serions volontiers restés une semaine ou deux de plus. quel dommage. C'est un endroit merveilleux, un petit bijou, très bien entretenu et vraiment nous avons passé un séjour un peu court mais combien agréable.

J'admets avoir mis dans cette maison toute mon âme pour que chacun s'y sente bien et il faut bien reconnaître que cette maison troglodyte dans ce lieu si pittoresque dégage une certaine magie. A bientôt et encore merci.
