During the years 2003 and 2006 we bought altogether 3 ruins, out of which we created the holiday home
La Cueva in Guajar Faragüit. Once everything was cleaned and ready to be rebuilt the property seemed
too big for only one house, so we decided to make two, La Estrella and El Sol, two unique holiday
rentals that share the outside facilities.
The renovation works were very difficult and strenuous. No building machinery could enter the house,
due to the narrow lane we are in, therefore everything had to be done by hand. The result is outstanding
and our neighbours are very proud of us and are very happy for our success in renting!
In spring 2007 the local TV station „Canal Sur“ phoned and asked if they could come to film the house –
of course they could!! They then invited us, together with lots of neighbours from the whole valley, to a
live breakfast show to their studios in Malaga, where they presented the valley of Los Guajares, with us as
the guesthouse to stay at when visiting! A lovely compliment!
When we enter the inner courtyard from the road with our guests, very often we hear a „Ahhhh“ or a
„how beautiful!“ Everything is made in a moorish style, with mostly local materials and soothing colours,
surrounded by many plants. A hidden gem, indeed!
From the patio both houses can be entered, outside we have two seperate sitting corners, where you can
enjoy a drink or your breakfast. A few steps lead up to the pool, set into a cave (La Cueva), formerly
home to pigs, rabbits and chicken!
The solarheated pool has an integrated bench with airjets (jacuzzi) – perfect for a refreshing dip! Next to
it you find another bathroom with the washing machine, iron and ironing board. Here we also leave you
some umbrellas, that you can take to the beach if you wish.
A spiral staircase leads up to the big (100m2), south facing roof top terrace from where you enjoy the
most breathtaking views across the Los Guajares mountain range, that separates us from the sea.
The locals grow mainly avocado-,chirimoya-,almond-, olive- and citrus fruit trees, if you wish to get
closer, go up to the moorish ruin „El Castillejo“ that you can see from up here.
There are two individual, shady pergolas with tables and chairs, deckchairs, hammocks and also a BBQ.
Take your favorite drink and sit up here at night, enjoying the starry sky or the fullmoon! Magic!
Many guests have already confirmed just how quiet it is here, even though we are in the middle of the
The holiday rental El Sol (2-4 guests) is kept in the same moorish, rustic style as La Estrella. Downstairs
is the open plan dining room with an equally fully furnished kitchen, a wide staircase leads up to the big
and cozy living room, where you have the choice between a comfortable (bed)sofa and a moorish style
sitting area. Of course here as well you have a glass fronted wood burner for the winter nights, a TV and
Wifi. Next to it is the big airy bedroom with attached bathroom.
The beds have good quality mattresses to assure you sleeping well, we provide all bed linen and towels,
except for beach/pool towels. All bedrooms have extra pillows and blankets and we have a baby cot and a
highchair for the younger families.The windows have mosquitonettings and all the woodwork in the
house, including furniture was handmade by a local carpenter.
La Cueva is a unique property. One guest once was wondering if we really needed to rent this beautiful
property, another one said „Renting such a special place, how much more beautiful can be your own
Come and experience this place for yourselves!
