Holiday Rental House
La Cueva came into existence by joining a ruined house,a very neglected chicken pen and a total ruin.We renovated everything with lots of dedication and love to the detail,trying to incorporate local materials like wood,stone,reeds from the river,esparto(local woven grass) and terracotta. The result are 2 holiday homes,both very rustic, as one unit with lots of Moorish charme,but at the same time extremely comfortable with all the amenities.La Cueva (La Estrella and El Sol ) is situated in the biggest of the 3 Guajar villages,20 mins from the coast and 1 hr from Granada.This is still a living white Andalusian village of mainly small farmers.Cool off in the solarheated Jacuzzi set into a cave with a waterfall,read a book in the pleasant patio or enjoy the magnificent views from the roof to...La Cueva came into existence by joining a ruined house,a very neglected chicken pen and a total ruin.We renovated everything with lots of dedication and love to the detail,trying to incorporate local materials like wood,stone,reeds from the river,esparto(local woven grass) and terracotta.

Interaction with guests
Generally we clean the house ourselves and are there to greet our guests and to show them around. If we are away, we have neighbours who do that for us, but we are ALWAYS reach - and available via Email or phone , in case our guests have questions. There is lots of info in the house, but we are more than happy to tell you about the local area, the wonderful handicraft you can find around here, tell you about the local fiestas, cultural visits our walks to do. We love living here and would like our guests to enjoy this beautiful place as much as we do!!

We had a real non-touristic experience in this beautiful house in this small village. The village had the basic infrastructure: bakery, bar-restaurant, little supermarket. Our hosts, Stefan and Naomi, had a lot of recommandations for walks around (a ruin of the 13th century!) or places...More

Additional amenities & feature info
From the lower floor a very happy and bright staircase leads up to the living area,which is split into two levels.In the higher part is the pull-out-couch of high quality,which can very easily be converted into a comfortable doublebed.From the lower part a door goes into the master bedroom with a big doublebed. The wooden beams on the ceiling give the whole room a very rustic and cozy atmosphere.This room as well as the attached bathroom are kept in a pleasant and cooling blue.Between bedroom and bathroom we set an antique window with stained glass to give it the mentioned flow.The mattresses as well as the whole bedding are of high quality.In summer we provide fans and hang mosquito nets over the beds to guarantee a peaceful sleep. The bathroom is attached to the bedroom.It is very spacious and the big window make it a bright and happy place.The combination of a wooden beamed ceiling with reeds,the beams above door and windows,the terracotta floor and the blue and white tiles make it a rustic and very pleasant “wellness”room.The sink is set into a built-in unit which is covered with black slate,into the mirror above reach some stones,which gives it a special touch.The shower is with 90x100 very big and a built-in shelf offers lots of space for your shower utensils. The 2nd bathroom can be entered from the patio and is shared with the guests of La Estrella.It also has wooden beams on the ceiling and over door and window is kept in green.Here you will find the washingmachine ,iron and ironing board.

About the neighbourhood
The 3 Guajar-villages, of which Faragüit is the biggest, are nestled in a very fertile and green valley,surrounded by mountains.Sometimes the Olive-Orange-Avocado and Chirimoyaplantations reach up to the top of these mountains.The Moors left behind the acequias(wateringchannels) that criss cross the valley and thanks to which it is so wonderfully fertile. These white Andalucian villages have actually been overlooked by tourism despite their proximity to the sea.Down to the coast,the beach and the next golfcourse it is 20mins,to Granada 1hr.,to the skislopes 11/2 hrs. and to the Alpujarras 45mins.Faragüit offers everything you might need,a colourful weekly market on Saturdays,a bar/restaurant with good homecooking from the area,a bank/ATM,a few bakeries,supermarket,doctor,pharmacy , beside...
Getting around
We would recommend a car, since it is just more convenient. Having said that, quite a few guests come without and use public transport to get here or we can arrange for a pick-up service from the airport (extra charge). There is one direct bus from Malaga to Motril and from there are busses to the village. On working days, there is one bus in the morning going to Granada coming back in the evening. The nearest trainstation would be in Granada.
