"Beautiful cave, wonderful views and superb owners."
We booked the villa with English owners Claire and Martin. Excellent directions were sent before hand via email and upon arrival we were directed to a BP garage in the local town/village of La Murada… More

"A charming house in a totoally quiet, idyllic location with kind and helpful owners."
The Cave House is clean, well equipped with a lovely garden and pool and good value. It is blissful lying by the pool when all you can hear are the crickets and birds, yet it is only a few minutes away from La Murada, a typical Spanish village where you can find all you need. The restaurants look like cafes but worth trying as you get a delicious BBQ and salad with a drink for 9euros. Although the Cave House is away from the village it is not solitary and the owners, who were very kind and helpful, live next door.
Although you could walk to the village I would recommend a car as there is a lot of interesting things to see and do - the Discover Costa Calida website is very useful. We chose to travel away from the hustle and bustle of the coast and found some interesting places to visit in land - Los Banos de Fortuna is a lovely spa village and really worth a visit. Also, my husband and 19year son (but I know they take younger children) had a fantastic day on enduro bikes with Solmoto, it is just beyond Lorca so about an hours drive but really worth it if you enjoy that sort of thing.
I would recommend the Cave House to anyone wanting the traditional villa with private pool experience without it breaking the bank as to add to the villa being value for money the flights to Alicante seem to be cheaper than to anywhere else too.

Great facilities especially the pool and the views, very quiet location but limited shops and restaurants in the immediate area so car hire is essential if you want to explore and have easy access to the more populated locations and the beaches.

"GORGEOUS HOUSE WITH VERY WELCOMING HOST"
This was one of the most relaxing holidays I have ever had. We felt completely at home and Claire was very helpful with everything we asked her. The property is lovely inside and out and very well presented. I would recommend to anyone who wants an away from the madding crowds holiday but would also add that if you want to visit the beaches or towns you will need a car. The village that is closest to buy groceries is not really walkable.

"Great place to stay in lovely countryside with excellent cycling."
Just back from a great week at the Cave House, a mixed group of 6 cyclists who all enjoyed the area and coming home to a welcoming house with a great pool. Claire made us very welcome and removed all the transfer hassle - even for our bikes!
The bedrooms stayed cool at night and the grounds hot by day.
Excellent bars and restaurants in the nearby town.

Well laid out house and garden. Incredibly cool inside despite the heat outside. Very quiet area but within walking distance to shops etc in nearby town. Comfortable beds. Owner very friendly and helpful.

"Great, relaxing family break in southern rural Spain"
We booked the Cave house online based on the information provided, the photographs and the price, for a family of six including four children age six to 13 years, and after email exchanges with the owner who provided location and travelling directions.
The property was easy to find and did not disappoint in any way, with its secluded leafy garden with plenty of shaded areas, pool and views of the surrounding countryside. And the house itself was easily large enough to accommodate a larger family, though we spend most time outside rather than in BBQ'ing and eating in the garden.
The village was only a very short drive away with one in particular very good supermarket memorable for the great sausages and singing butcher who was able to encourage my kids into speaking Spanish.
Other attractions could be found within 30 minutes drive including the very impressive Canelobre Caves at Busot and the lovely historic Cathedral town of Elche with castle, museums, restaurants, bars and cafes. Drives through the various mountain uplands were also a treat, through forests. pick-nicking lake side or stopping for lunch in one of the many villages along the way.
The owners were also very friendly, very helpful and flexible, allowing us to say for an extra day when I realised our flight back to Dubai was a day later than I had expected.
All-in-all, a very relaxing 3 weeks holiday that went all too quickly!
