Interaction with Guests
I live next door to the cave house. I am available most of the time for my guests if they need help.
The cave house is located in the picturesque and traditional town of Monachil, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. Monachil is 18 Km from the Sierra Nevada Ski Resort, 8 Km from the city of Granada (Humanity's Heritage by UNESCO, home to the majestic La Alhambra) only at 9 Km from here, and 30 Km from the Mediterranean Sea.
Monachil has a rich cultural life and offers a variety of outdoor activities such as para-gliding, mountain biking, trekking and rock climbing. There are also many bars and restaurants with great tapas and a fun atmosphere.
The town is very well located, there are public buses to Granada every hour. In the town of Monachil are plenty things to see and do. Here you can experience typical Andalusian way of life. You may do a flamenco course or learn how to cook the best paella and impress your friends back home. Also visit artist´s workshops, and more...
It is very quite, peaceful, our street is almost pedestrian, only the neighbors park the car up. There is not traffic at all.
The bus stop is at 100 meters from the cave house, this bus takes to Granada center.

Lovely place - very relaxed and gracious host. The cave was comfortable and clean. We enjoyed some lovely walks in the area. Kathy was very flexible about arrival and leaving time which was much appreciated. Thanks!
Magic! This was the highlight of our trip in Andalucia. There is a feeling of happiness all over the place. The cave is splendid and well kept with a great sens of detail and taste for decoration. The barbecue and the little garden overlooking the mountains in a hammock can't be better. Kathy is the nicest host we have met, she was always available and made sure we had everything needed. The village itself is beautiful and it is a great base to go hiking. We loved it and hope we will have the chance to go back. Thank you so much!
Kathy was the perfect host, great communication, recommendations and the family were warm and welcoming. The cave house was a perfect cool retreat during very warm weather! Everyone should have stay in a cave, so quiet and diffrent! The place was clean with everything you need and all in working order. The town is gorgeous, always something going on in evenings for entertainment, the people all so welcoming. Hiking was amazing and getting around easy with the local bus to Granada.
Prima ervaring, unieke plek tegen bergwand met bijzondere grotwoning. Vriendelijke ontvangst door Kathy met uitleg over routes en bezienswaardigheden. Kleine supermarkt en snelle busverbinding naar granada op 5 minuten afdalen met wandelpad met of zonder treden. Voldoende restaurantjes. Bagage moet wel naar boven gedragen of met kofferwielen gerold worden, een behoorlijke klim van 6-8 minuten. Auto beneden veilig te parkeren. Grotwoning zelf bijzonder, alle voorzieningen aanwezig, toch wel wat vochtig. 2 leuke dagen doorgebracht met z`n drieën. Fijn vertrekpunt voor granada en uitstapjes. Heerlijk verblijf op rustige plek met fraai uitzicht
The cave and location was a perfect getaway, it was exactly as described. Very relaxing, good places to eat, live jazz show and lovely mountain walking. Kathy was a superb host and we can't thank her enough for driving us at the last minute to Granada to catch our train when we couldn't get a taxi.
Although public transport from Monachil is usually quite regular, we were there on a public holiday weekend which meant that the buses and taxis were running a limited service and we should have planned better.
We have already recommended the place to friends and would definitely go back.
Kathy was a most welcoming and charming host, giving us plenty of tips on nearby restaurants and things to see in the wonderful Monachil and the stunning Sierra Nevada. Her cavehouse was absolutely perfect for a couple and has got great views from the terrace! Highly recommended, we would certainly return without hesitation!
We really enjoyed our stay at La Chumbera. This is the second time we have stayed with Kathy (our first was in Kathy's other cave house, La Pita) and we would recommend both (it is very hard to pick a favourite!) They are both cosy and comfortable, with great views over Monachil, and are perfectly situated for access to Granada and the Sierra Nevada. Every time we come back to Monachil we find something new to appreciate, this time it was the evening of live jazz at La Chistera restaurant, just across the road from our accomodation. We hope to come back soon!
