Our lovely, quiet Balcony Cave is full of modern comforts and will be the highlight of your holiday. With a wide sunny terrace and a secret tunnel to an fantastic balcony, it has two double rooms, one twin, a full kitchen, bath and shower.

The space
Cave homes are a traditional feature of the amazing town of Guadix, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Today hundreds of people still live in them, enjoying cool in summer and warmth in winter. Our lovely cave combines this tradition with modern features, including a full kitchen with dishwasher, a large, bright bathroom with separate bath and shower. There's also a cosy dining room with log fire, a sitting room with a small library of English and French books and local maps and guides.

This cave is next door to the one listed as 'A Cosy Cave with a Sunny Garden' and if you are a large group you could book both for more space.

Outside there is a wide terrace with a lovely dining table and bbq and a special balcony found off the twin bedoom, a perfect place for morning coffee or a late drink under the stars.

This cave home can sleep up to six in comfort. It has three separate and private bedrooms, each apart from the other and closed off by curtains over the doors. Beds have bedside lights or room lights.

You are moments away on foot from a couple of lovely, inexpensive restaurants. There is a baker nearby for fresh bread and the fascinating town of Guadix is an easy walk too.

Where you’ll be

Guadix, Andalucía, Spain

There's nowhere else quite like this on the planet - in a good way. The cave district of Guadix overlooks this historic town and is slowly being discovered by adventurous visitors like you. Our neighbours are friendly and there are lovely local places to eat. Beaches, mountain walks and the city of Granada are all an easy drive away.

As Matthew Parris wrote in The Times about this cave (URL HIDDEN) has acquired a bath, a new shower, refurbished bedrooms, wood for a fire whose chimney pokes from the hilltop above, a quarry-tiled floor, a washing machine and a coat of whitewash.
We look out over a kind of badlands, a moonscape of dry clay hills, grotesquely eroded by time. Our cave stands among a veritable honeycomb of inhabited burrows, above a hot, dry, once-Moorish town called Guadix, on the lower slopes of the snow-flecked Sierra Nevada. The town bakes under by the pitiless stare of a July sun.
But our burrow is cool. You know why, in theory: only a few metres into the Earth’s crust the temperature is fairly constant, warmer in winter and colder in summer. In practice the effect is astonishing. In our little bunker-bedrooms we need quilts; step out on to the hillside and you’re hit by a wall of heat and blinded by the light'
