We can offer you a magnificent and unforgettable voyage back to the depths of time in breathtakingly beautiful accommodation formed by this unique way of life. Experience the real Spain!

Cuevas Collalbas is tranquility personified, nestling in the beautiful nature reserves and national parks of Sierra de Baza, Granada, Andalucia. This idyllic and forgotten part of Granada was, until 40 years ago, full of small hamlets carved into the hills around the lands formed by drying out the lake. Today restored and beautifully updated, whilst maintaining the magic of a forgotten world it is a luxurious, spacious cave home that lies in the picturesque countryside near the town of Baza.

It is just 2 minutes walk to the nearest bar and restaurant (Al Jatib) which has Arabian baths. A hot bath, a warm room and a cold bath, a natural solarium, a massage room and a 'chill out' room – perfect for a bit of holiday indulgence.

The Andalucia region

The Granada Province of Andalucia is a diverse mixture of rich green valleys, lakes, mountains , flat farm land and dry arrid plains. It is home to the beautiful " Alhambra Palace ", ski-ing in the majestic mountain range "Sierra Nevada ", and the amazing palm treed coastline of the " Costa Tropical ".

Baza rests in the Sierra de Baza natural park, and area covering over 52,000 hectares and reaching peaks of 2,000m in height. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty providing the active with a plethora of outdoor pursuits and the less active with unspoilt landscapes and breathtaking scenery. There are plenty of sign posted walks and hiking routes and the local wildlife includes wild boar and the golden and Egyptian eagles.

Baza

The nearest town, Baza is situated approximately 5minutes drive away (100km from Granada along the A-92N). The town is steeped in history and has been linked to many cultures. Most notably it flourished under the Arab influence. Baza has a lot to offer and has more recently come back onto the cultural map. It is an expanding town which combines a modern outlook with a sense of pride in its rich and varied culture.

Every Wednesday there is a typical Spanish market between 9am and 2pm. Every September there is the week long Fiesta de la virgin de la piedad. There is an archaeological museum in the town, along with plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants.

Lake Negratin, just 20 minutes by car is a must see. It is the third most important reservoir in Andalucia, with 32kms of shoreline and is ideal for swimming. Along its coast line in the area of Freila a man made beach is located where numerous water sports can be enjoyed in the warm mineral water. The scenery is stunning and it is also rich in wildlife. There are also several restaurants and cafes to relax and take in the beautiful views.

Close by is the town of Zujar where there are thermal baths renowned for their healing qualities. The water is directly from Lake Negratin and is a constant 38 degrees. Zujar’s origins are believed to be Roman and despite it being a growing, modern town there are still many areas made up of cave houses believed to be built during the 16th Century. The restaurant at the thermal baths is excellent and provides stunning views of the lake and mountains whilst you enjoy a meal.

Castril, just 30 minutes away is surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside with a skyline dominated by La Pena, a large crag around which the town is built. The town has a typical Spanish charm about it, with white washed houses and narrow winding streets. Plaza Hernando de Zafra forms the hub of the town. The gardens of La Lonja, a small peaceful green area provide for great views across the pretty town. The Inglesa Nuestra Senora de los Angeles, Roman Catholic church is also worth a visit.

The city of Granada, just over an hour away is said to be one of the most beautiful cities of Spain, sitting at the foot of the Sierra Nevada between the Darro and Genil rivers. It is an unforgettable town mixing old and new. At the heart of the city you’ll find a lively bustling centre with a wealth of shops and restaurants catering for all budgets. A walk through the streets reminds you of the rich heritage of the city. Granada is of course famous for the Alhamba Palace, Spain’s number one tourist attraction. Built on the Sabika Hill overlooking the city, this impressive fortress and palace was the home of the Nasrid Dynasty, the last Islamic sultanate of Spain. The Albaicin area is made up of cobblestoned streets and quiet plaza’s lined with pretty whitewashed houses. This area was recently declared a world heritage site and is definitely worth a visit.

Further a field is the town of Guadix, well known for its troglodyte area and one of the oldest settlements in Spain, inhabited during both the Phoenician and Carthaginian periods. This is an area full of cave houses dating back many centuries, strange and quite unique houses built into the rock face. The whole hillside is dotted with them, some of them palatial inside. The centre of the town is where the old and the new merge with all the modern facilities expected from a town of this size, whilst managing to retain its sense of history
