The genuine cave house accommodation Cortijo El Cura is a very cozy, sheltered and idyllic one-floor Andalusian cottage, in part built into the rock and characterised by its genuine Moorish-style interiors, a paradise-like garden with sumptuous vegetation and majestic views of the surrounding mountains. It’s a bowl of beauty with 2.500sqm organic-certificated groves and grassland. Located in a completely private and secluded property and surrounded by lush vegetation in an authentic Mediterranean subtropical setting, it oozes absolute natural tranquility. The garden is a piece of heaven and contains various orange, avocado, centenarian olive and other Mediterranean fruit trees. There is a playground and a childproof pool area with green lawn all around. This cottage is fully equipped with top quality facilities and will guarantee the perfect relaxing and pleasurable holiday. All rooms have direct access to the large and idyllic terraces which run all along the south-front of the house, partly covered by an ancient vineyard and an ideal spot for sunbathing or simply relaxing, taking in the riveting fragrance of the blossoms and the ever-changing colours of the spectacular mountains beyond. Right beside there is a huge stone-built barbecue. Each guest has their own sun lounger. We attach particular importance to comfort and cleanliness.

Inside you can enjoy a lovely intimate atmosphere within the thick-stone built walls in an authentic traditional southern Spanish style, with a pleasant indoor temperature all year-round. Both bedrooms, particularly the cozy cave-bedroom carved into the rock, are perfect for an enjoyable siesta on a hot summer afternoon and the open fireplace in the living room gives warmth in the winter evenings. In order to get to the cave bedroom you have to pass through the other two person bedroom.
