Guadix is well known for its troglodyte area. This is an area full of cave houses dating back many centuries, strange and quite unique houses built into the rock face. The houses are made from caves with superficial concrete frontages being built on. The whole hillside is dotted with them, some of them palacial inside.
Ordinary holidaymakers who got the villa/house bug from renting of others. Young family on buying but kids grown up now. Only the one property, so not professionals. Just want to share what we enjoy with others and pay for the upkeep of the pool.
Owner purchased this house in 2003
Why Owner chose Cortes de Baza
Although very rural and quiet we are on the edge of a village with all facilities. The surrounding area has plenty off beautiful countryside and bigger towns, for shopping. Most nearby villages have markets once a week. This is a very rural community and you will definitely get to live as the Spanish live. In fact we recommend it for maximum appreciation of the area. We fell in love with caves. They are all very individual. Although it does seem to be a love/hate thing as, far as peoples views are concerned over cave living, it will always be an experience
What makes this house unique
Your own private pool is a definite plus. Although not all year round we can say it is good for June to Sept and May and Oct are for hardier pool users. The cave is cool in Summer and cosy in winter, a constant 19 deg. A wood burner makes it even cosier off season. Relax and take in the view.
