  The Detail...

This artistic cave house is wonderfully relaxing - with calm interiors, mature gardens bursting with fruit trees and views that go on for miles, its a perfect slice of Andalusian life. An abundance of beaches are ready and waiting to be discovered in easy driving distance. Carved into the rock, the house is brimming with character. Perfect all year round, you can enjoy flower-filled walks from the door in Spring, perfectly cool interiors during the summer and cosy nights around the fire in winter.

Step inside the cave to discover the serene interiors. The cave is beautifully cool during the hot summer so theres no need for air con. The lounge area has traditional banquette seating that hugs the wood burning stove - perfect for cooler nights during the winter. And the white washed walls, tiled floors and vibrant textiles make for an effortlessly relaxed space.

The kitchen is charmingly traditional with wooden units, dining table, a gas hob and microwave. Theres also a fridge freezer, washing machine and lots of traditional crockery. The views out of the windows provide the perfect Andalusian backdrop for any tapas preparations. And the owners have helpfully provided the essentials of olive oil, salt, pepper and herbs for you to use in your cooking.

The two bedrooms (The White Room and The Cave Bedroom) are the epitome of tranquility. The whitewashed walls sit perfectly next to the crisp white linen and elegant styling. The master bedroom has shelves and bedside tables carved into the stone, whilst the White Room has the most beautiful mosaic sink. Cool in summer, its the ideal place to take your afternoon siesta. Theres also a third through room, The Morrocon Room, that makes for a great teenage den or overflow sleeping arrangement. The sofa bed in this room converts to a full size double. Its a lovely space to relax with artwork, books and traditional Moroccon lamps.

Outside youll discover mature gardens and a wonderful shaded terrace complete with comfortable seating and a dining table. Its a stunning area you can indulge in all day - whether its for a lazy breakfast or romantic dinner followed by a spot of stargazing. Surrounded by mature fruit trees, flowering shrubs and the most spectacular views out over the hamlet of Grima and the mountains beyond, its truly stunning.

Situated in a tiny village means its the perfect place to switch off and escape. Supermarkets are within an easy drive and the next village boasts the owners favourite cave restaurant - so you dont need to head far for the essentials. Theres even a bread van that calls to the village three days a week - just listen out for the horn! Located just 6km from the sea its easy to head out to explore the coastline - and with so much to see the owners have created their own handy guide to the best beaches in the area. There is plenty to explore from the door with miles of walks in the local area - head downstream to discover the numerous charming sculptures created by a neighbouring property and their talented guests. If you want to explore a larger town then the ancient port of Cartagena, around an hour away, is ready and waiting with its natural harbour, cathedral, Roman amphitheatre and plenty of restaurants.
