We stayed at the Cave of Dreams in October 2016. We had a great time, Clive and Allan are the perfect hosts! Clive speaks Spanish and has good knowledge of the local area. Allan is a great cook! They welcome you into their separate roof top cave with open arms..... the space for your stay is very private with all the amenities you can expect. Beautiful traditional style bathroom.. great place to sit and read, or take in the amazing sunsets and views. There are some stunning places to visit locally and a little further afield, Clive and Allan advised us well. There is also ample parking. We drove up from Malaga, approx 2.5 hours with fantastic scenery and lots of petrol stations and restaurants en route. We will definitely return again soon.
The Cave of Dreams so aptly named as I hadn't slept so well in ages. At night it's dark, cosy and so quiet, during the hot days it's cool and welcoming. The private little terrace outside gives wonderful views of the rural landscape and the mountains in the distance yet the cave is just a short drive away from the large town of Baza.
Allan and Clive are the perfect hosts. They provide a lovely breakfast in the morning and give advice on the many interesting places to visit. We went to the lake, waterfalls, spa, flamenco restaurant, Neolithic burial sites, museums, and lovely towns and villages. There is a chilled and hip cave bar and restaurant within walking distance and further afield the coast is a 1.5 hours drive away.
I highly recommend.
My partner and I stayed here over the Christmas period and had a truly magical time.
It's so hard to discover something new and unique - but that's exactly what is on offer at the 'cave of dreams'. Here in an ethereal lunar landscape, you can escape reality and slow down to a relaxed pace away from the hubbub of everyday life.
The accommodation is in a separate cave above the owners property accessed by a secured stairwell.
All the charms of a genuine cave are combined with modern facilities including tv, fridge and bathroom. You even have your own terrace!!
The hosts, Allan (great cook) & Clive are incredibly convivial without being intrusive.
Something not to be missed during your next visit to Spain and ridiculously good value for money!
We stayed at the 'Cave of Dreams' in November for 2 nights and received a really friendly and warm welcome from the owners Allan and Clive. It's unlike anywhere we've ever stayed before and to be honest we were not quite sure what to expect but....... I have to say we were very pleasantly surprised!
Allan and Clive are great hosts - friendly & helpful when we asked for anything but they also gave us enough space to be able to relax, enjoy our stay and to take in the views from the roof top terrace and surrounding countryside.
We'd never stayed in Andalusia before but we enjoyed exploring the area and Baza itself, which is a fairly quiet but interesting little town. There are wonderful walks in the surrounding national parks and Guadix and Granada are both an easy drive away.
The room was beautifully decorated (modern yet a little quirky!), cosy, very clean and well maintained. The breakfast was lovely - just what we needed to set us up for a couple of days of exploring!
We look forward to visiting again sometime soon!
I would have liked to keep this Secret Retreat to myself but that would not be fair on the hosts who looked after me so well. If you want to find a quiet space in glorious surroundings look no further. Spending time in Lake Nagratin with all the fish swimming round me was a memorable experience and not to be missed
