A fabulous cave house for rent in Galera. A South facing, sensitively restored 1 bedroom cave house to rent with great views. Recently reformed with all modern amenities and retaining a traditional cosy feel. Outside, a natural wood pagoda covers the seating and eating area, a traditional brick built barbeque is the perfect option for outdoor cooking. Stepping inside the cave house the lounge has beamed ceilings and quirky seating built into the rock. The blend of wood and rock continues into the kitchen dining area. Inside the original fireplace sits a wood burner for the winter evenings. The bedroom is bright and airy with original details, whilst the bathroom is picked back by hand into the mountain with curvy cave walls. The bedroom has a double bed with 100% cotton bed linen, hanging space for clothes and a dresser. The kitchen diner features an original fireplace with wood burning fire, breakfast bar, oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine, kettle, cafeteria, toaster and cooking utensils. Situated on a quiet road Cueva Galera is the perfect place to relax and experience staying and sleeping in a cave home.
Hi we are Keith and Sue. We have lived in Spain now for over 15 years and love the culture, history and the relaxed way of life here in Andalusia. Living in a cave home is a unique experience, the cave which was once the domain of the poor has now become a stylish option for professionals in the city of Granada, for those looking for an ecological lifestyle or a holiday retreat. Cave houses are still in use for Spanish families who have lived in them for generations. We would love to share with you our passion for cave living. See you soon.
Prepare to be charmed by the pretty inland village of Galera, steeped in history with the influence of many cultures going back some 4,000 years. Having been occupied during the Bronze Age the Phoenicians, the Romans and the Moors, today it is home to just over 1000 inhabitants. The fountain bubbles away constantly and neighbours chat under the shade of the trees, a typically traditional Andalusian village scene. There is however nothing more surprising or exceptional in Galera than the neighbourhood of the caves. In the Cave Barrios of Santa Elena, Del Santismo and Las Cruces the whitewashed cave houses cling high up on the side of the mountains, with their pepper pot chimneys protruding literally out of the rock. It is here that some of the population known as Troglodytes live underground. As demand for ecologically friendly homes continues to grow these quirky cave houses provide an ideal solution. The thermal properties of these caves dug deep into the rock provide an all year round temperature of 18-20 degrees with no requirement for air conditioning or central heating, just a wood burning stove for the winter. Galera is a traditional Andalusian village, visit and enjoy.
