A beautifully modernised and fully furnished cave-house for long-term rent in the heart of the stunning unspoilt countryside of Andalucia in Southern Spain.

Hewn from the rock and set on the very edge of the small village of Fuente Nueva, near Orce in the province of Granada and with far reaching views to the mountains, the cave-house is in a wonderful location. Inside the ceilings are high and the rooms are airy and spacious, with most having natural light.

This property has recently become available for long-term rent and would be ideal for anyone thinking of buying in the area to learn about the region without committing to a purchase, or would make the perfect escape for someone who wants peace and quiet and time to write that book!

The surrounding scenery is very varied, ranging from semi-desert, scrub-covered hills, cut through by fertile irrigated valleys, to high mountain ranges whose lower slopes are clad in vast pine forests. There are several natural parks in the area, where the possibilities for walking, picnicking and observing the wildlife are virtually limitless.

The house sleeps four people comfortably having two separate double bedrooms. A third room with a skylight could be used as another bedroom, studio or study.

There is a well equipped kitchen with a cooker and fridge-freezer, a large dining hall and a sitting room area with fireplace (for the winter), as well as a fully tiled modern bathroom with WC, bidet, hand-basin and walk-in shower.


Road access is excellent considering the untouched nature of the region. The cave is about 1½ hours from Granada airport and around 2 hours from Alicante and Murcia San Javier airports the majority of the route being by dual carriageway.
