The Andalucia region
Granada province is characterised by extreme variables in landscape and climate, so much so that it's possible to ski in the mountains and go diving in the sea in one day. When you've exhausted the magnificent city of Granada, there are countless other possibilities: from going underground in cave dwellings in a desolate desert-like area, climbing the Iberian Peninsula's highest mountains or losing yourself in the region's rich Moorish history and fortified palaces.
Cortes De Baza
Of all the villages that make up the Huescar and Baza regions of the Altiplano area in the Granada Province, Cortes de Baza is arguably the most unspoiled of all. Its humble agricultural rural community and traditional way of life has remained intact despite modern advances and 21st century rural tourism. At an altitude of 701 metres above sea level, this beautiful municipality covers an area of around 140 Km2 and is in the GPS zone 30S with the bearings X: 05 20 40 and Y: 41 67 80. With a population of just over 3,000, this is an idyllic natural paradise, where you can expect a warm welcome from the local community.
Situated on the north point of the beautiful Negratin lake, Cortes de Baza offers the visitor not only the delights and benefits of being on the fringe of the Natural park, but is also a wonderful area to enjoy water sports and fishing.
On Lake Negratin you will find two beaches one at Freila with Pedalos and a bar on the beach in summer months. On the Cueva del Campo side of the lake there is another beach split in half, one side for Naturists the other for bathing costumes!
The history of Cortes de Baza goes back to prehistoric times, evidence of which is all around the area in the form of remains. This is especially true of the area known as Hoya de Baza. Ancient artefacts such as a Mammoth jawbone, cooking bowls and many other objects from Iberian, phonetician and roman cultures were found and subsequently taken by the authorities to Madrid to be catalogued.
Sadly the Castle of Cortes did not stand the test of time and is now only distinguishable by what remains of the foundations. This ancient monument was originally built in the 13th century by the Muslims to guard against attack from the Castilian armies.
Cortes de Baza enjoyed a time of great prosperity and splendour during Roman times and right through to the end of the time of the Moors, after which it went into decline. It has always been closely bound to Baza and is now looking to become a more independent municipality, which looks possible thanks to a new prosperity brought to the village, in the form of rural tourism.
The weekly market of Cortes de Baza is on each Saturday morning.
On the penultimate weekend of August, there is a festival held in honour of the patron saints, San Cosme and San Damián (Los Santos Médicos). this is a Fiesta not to be missed, dancing all night for three days, Fair, street stalls, bars, games, culminating on the Monday/Tuesday with a Village Paella (free) Tinto Verano & Beer (free) followed by a water and foam fight through the streets of the village and in the local school!!!

"Wonderful cooling Cave House Experience"
We stayed at Cueva Peralta for ten days and did not want to leave.
The Cave house was a very comfortable home from home, with all modern amenities, plus the lovely "Hot Tub" providing relaxation after a hot day!
Bob went the extra mile to ensure we had everything he could provide, taking us on a conducted tour of the village shops and bars, giving directions to places of interest and even providing us with his own additonal DVD to enable the use of our pre-recorded DVD viewing. We loved the wonderful mountainous area with the beautiful blue Lake Ne Gratin and enjoyed visiting the Alambra Palace in Granada.
Being new to Cave Dwelling, we surveyed more in the area and came to the conclusion that "Cueva Peralta " is far superior in comfort and value for money. We would certainly recommend to friends and hope to return ourselves in the forseeable future.
Thanks Bob and Pedro for a most enjoyable holiday.
Peta and John
Thank you for your review and I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Rural Andalucia and Cueva Peralta in particular. I hope to see you both again soon. Bob

"Our best holiday ever!"
We can't rate Cueva Peralta and dear old Cortes de Baza highly enough! They feel like home from home to us now. Every year we find some new places to explore, and Bob is a mine of information about places worth visiting. He and Paulo even arranged a ride for Rosie on a Spanish horse in the countryside near Baza, which was great!
Other memorable experiences included meeting Tomas, one of six farming brothers from Carramaiza, joining the fiesta at La Teja, and getting lost on the tracks in the valley below Fuente Vera, finally emerging near Castril, and not least lying on the sunbeds at midnight looking up at the stars!
We're looking forward to next year's visit already, with lots more things we want to do.
Thanks for a superb holiday Bob and Paulo, and of course Barney and Wilma!
Rosie and John Fearnley and Geraldine Reed, Norfolk, England.
Dear All, thank you for your wonderful review, and thank you for booking for next year. See you all again very soon, Best Regards Bob
