We had a dream………….
A dream to live a life of simplicity, somewhere we could bring our daughter up to realise the values of everyday life and we could work together as a family to make our dream come true.
We researched southern Spain and discovered an area of Andalucia where Cave house living is the norm, an area of majestic beauty and stunning vistas, where you are transported back 40 years to amazing traditional Spanish villages where life hasn’t changed. Along came our vision to create Cave Holidays Spain and develop our idea of providing amazing cave house holidays where you can immerse yourself in nature, but not be too far off the beaten track.
So we left the UK, our life of suburbia and normality and found our perfect place in the Altiplano de Granada, we found the one big thing on our wish list, an amazing view, the view was in front of a huge but derelict cave house, overgrown and rundown. We set out over a period of 6 months to create two beautiful, stylish, spacious and comfortable cave houses, and our home too. This task seemed immense when looking at our original purchase of a run down property that all the cats in the neighbourhood had made their home!
Plans were drawn up and then redrawn up until we came up with two perfect cave houses, somewhere we ensured would be a place our customers could kick back and relax away from the stresses of normality and experience Cave House living.
We have come along way since that dream five years go, our daughter has flourished at school and will soon be going to Spanish University, fluent and mistaken for a Spaniard!
Our lives have changed immeasurably, we no longer have to book time to be a family, and have rotating dinners, never being as one as a family.
We no longer have the stress of everyday life, the stress of life in the UK, as we have created our dream business. A home for us and for our guests, somewhere we can enjoy and ensure our guests enjoy too, in a beautiful area of Andalucia.
Cave Holidays Spain is flourishing and growing every year and we are extremely proud of what we have created as a family.
