Just a few minutes from Baza Town , the Cave House is situated a walk away from the village centre of Zujar, in Granada Province. Almost in the centre of where Caves are in Spain.

I chose to buy in Zujar deliberately to enjoy being 5 minutes from the 2nd largest Lake ( Negratin ) in Andalucia, and a short drive from all the shops and services of Baza, the larger town .

Zujar with under 3000 people still provides cafes, bars, restuarants, shops, banks etc....but add to that the Thermal Hot Springs ( 2 different centres open to the public ) and incredibly friendly people !

It's relaxed and totally different to everywhere else in Spain, and a world ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Zujar is a special place , situated in a valley and has a history of Cave dwelling dating back 3000 years....it's even been featured on UK TV's ' A Place in the Sun ' ( I have the video ! )....delightfully close to the massive lake Negratin , it has many beaches offering pedaloes and canoes, or playgrounds for children...often there will be a nearby bar and restaurant, where you can use the toilets and buy your drinks or ice creams.

There are 2 Hot Spring natural Spas in Zujar, next to the lake....the Geothermal waters have healing properties for aches and pains, but just enjoy a lovely hot soak in the sun , 39C water temperatures :)
It's a great place to relax and unwind...to walk or swim , to shop or eat out....there are some great bars and restaurants in Zujar , or further afield Baza and beyond.

If you feel like a day out, try a trip to the Tabernas Desert - it is Europe's only natural desert - and will be known to you, whether you realise it or not, as it was the location for many flims, like Clint Eastwood's Fistful of Dollars ( and the rest of the ' Man with No Name ' series ) , also Indiana Jones etc.
Now it has been made into a themed area, known as Mini Hollywood......and it's a memorable day out, maybe taking part in a mock gun fight against the ' baddies ' ?

If you are a History buff....neolithic man have left his mark on many local places with an hour's drive .

For nature lovers....wow, this is the place ! ....walks, hikes, horse riding , wonderful flora and fauna.....expect to see Eagles flying on the higher north side of the lake...but closer to Zujar, why not walk up Mount Jabalcon , all 1494 metres of it ? ( you can cheat and drive it, too ! )

The wider area , in which Zujar is almost central , is known as the ' Altiplano ' ( the high country ) it has an almost endless landscape.....
part lunar like, part forests, mountains and lakes and rivers with many natural waterfulls and rock pools .
The area is becoming steadily better known for its foods and wines.....and having tasted them , I can tell you they are great !
Never had a better white wine or eaten better sweeter lamb anywhere !

It's a Cave to enjoy, a village to explore, and an area to find almost anything that takes your fancy.
If the lake beaches are not enough, its not a long drive to the Coast and Mojacar, Aguilas, etc

But my bet will be , as most holiday makers, you'll want to enjoy the home, local area and soak up some sun, relax and enjoy good local foods....
if so , you can't fail here !
