We are just back in Somerset after an amazing - and incredibly hot!- week in Spain. We stayed in Cuevas del Cipres and it was certainly a holiday with a difference!
The cave is huge, with well spaced out bedrooms offering some privacy in spite of there being only one internal door. There are 2 sitting rooms, two eating areas and 2 bathrooms. The kitchen is well kitted out with 2 fridges and a deep freeze, plus a cooker, microwave, dishwasher and pizza oven. Out side there is a shaded courtyard to relax in.
The most exceptional things about the cave are ....its temperature...it was 46 degrees outside several of the days we were there and walking back into the cave was like an air conditioned room without the noise or the dry air! At night it was not cold either, but a pleasant temperature. The other bonus for us was the silence/ solitude, it all made for an exceptional holiday.
Nearby the Al Jatib hotel, run by Luc was welcoming and also a Cave! As we were " out in the sticks" and exploring local lakes and history by day, we opted mainly to eat at Al Jatib in the evenings which is within walking distance and so meant we could enjoy a few drinks with our eveing meals.
Matt the owner of Cuevas del Cipres has compiled a folder with lots of useful information for his guests too.
I can really recommend going here for a holiday, we were surprised that so few people seem to go to this area as it is quite spectacular.
Thank you Matt, we are planning another visit when we retire and will be telling all our friends about your lovely cave.

A group of us (5) stayed at Matt's Cave House - we absolutely loved it! There's an open fire, warm showers and even a woodfire pizza oven.
Honestly have nothing bad to say about this place - Matt is a pleasure to deal with!
Thanks for having us :)
