About the Owner

My name is Claire, myself and my mother have owned and lived in this beautiful Cave House since 2001. We have restored and transformed a basic cave house, had electric and plumbing fitted and brought together modern day living with the charm and beauty of this very old property. We now rent so others may sample life living in a cave house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a beautiful place to stay. We spent many an afternoon in the private pool, reading a book and looking over at the mountains. The garden is beautiful, very well kept and looked after. The cave house is quirky, clean and very spacious. We ate in every night as the kitchen was so well equipped. The friendly and easy going owners have obviously done their homework, and fitted the property with everything you need for a 'home from home' stay. We all enjoyed our holiday at the Cave House. We hired a car, which was very cheap, from Alicante Airport.

Clean and well presented.

Claire was helpful and kindly picked up some food stuff for us in advance of our arrival. We arrived exceptionally late due to flight delays but she took the time to show us were everything was. Kids really enjoyed the pool and the bbq. The rooms were very clean and having sweets and drinks in the cave was a nice touch. The big supermarket nearby was discreet but very handy.

I loved the cave, loved the area,

the Sunday market was brilliant - Fresh churros were a revelation!

and have recommended the villa to so many people.

We can't wait to come back .....

Well laid out house and garden. Incredibly cool inside despite the heat outside. Very quiet area but within walking distance to shops etc in nearby town. Comfortable beds. Owner very friendly and helpful.

Great place to stay in lovely countryside

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a great week at the Cave House, a mixed group of 6 cyclists who all enjoyed the area and coming home to a welcoming house with a great pool. Claire made us very welcome and removed all the transfer hassle - even for our bikes!

The bedrooms stayed cool at night and the grounds hot by day.

Excellent bars and restaurants in the nearby town.

Highly recommended.
