What can we tell you about us? We, that is the boss, Stefan and his foreign wife Naomi and of course the lazy cats Blackey, Felix and Tammy.(He,Austrian, she,British;cats, Spanish) We are all VERY lucky bums and enjoy every day anew living in this wonderful, wonderful part of the world! Naomi and I, we are both from the touristtrade. After some years of working abroad in big hotels ( we met in Geneva), we decided to do some travelling and started with 6 month in Asia. Then, after a bit of work in Austria/Germany we went off again for 2 more years. Returning back to Austria we were thinking of becoming normal and wanted to marry, have children and save up for a house…sounds familiar hey?! Anyway we rented a pub/restaurant in Bavaria and within the first year had a crisis meeting between the 2 of us. We decided, that these above mentioned goals did NOT justify such hard work with so many long hours! So, instead of changing the job, we changed our goals into more travelling, that motivated us enough to keep going for 5 ½ years. So then we stored our few belongings and set off on a new trip, that was in 1992…..You want to know where we went?What we did? What we experienced? Come and spend some time with us, and we will tell you!! Anyway, we came back to Europe in 1999 and started looking for a new home somewhere a bit warmer than in the north. We happened upon this beautiful area and immediately fell in love with it, we looked at La Rueda on a Monday and bought it by Friday, soon after Blackey moved in,who in the meantime has dies. After which we ook in 3 young kittens and now see the world through their eyes. Things like food flying around in the form of birds, dangers everywhere, like small dogs and motorbikes. After having done up the lot we thought to be able to lead a quiet life and enjoy paradise. Instead we came across this charming ruin in Guajar bought it at the spur of the moment and then saw us nearly 3 years in working clothes…when we had recovered we bought another old ruin in the centre of Orgiva and did it up, finishing it in 2017.All 3 properties La Rueda and La Cueva and El Garzopo turned out unique little jewels and we´d be more than happy sharing them with you.

We had a wonderful time in La Cueva in Guájar Faragüit. The boys loved the pool /jacuzzi in the cave, we relaxed on the terrasse and took small promenades in this beautiful town in the Andalusian mountains. I dream of staying at La Cueva again.

This little cottage has been sympathetically restored and is in keeping with the area. The pool, garden and views are much better than the photographs show. A very tranquil and restful place with lots of facilities a short drive away. The owners were very hospitable and helpful when we needed advice. They know a lot about the area and they helped to make our stay memorable. I would definitely recommend this place for a relaxing holiday.

It was awesome! Such a nice community feel to the neighbourhood and the views from the rooftop were spectacular! All of the amenities made us feel right at home. Thank you!



Delightful property, very well furnished and maintained. Located in a traditionally Spanish mountain village with local amenities. Excellently located for access to the coast (15 mins), Sierra Nevarda (1 hour) and Granada (30 mins). Advisable to hire a car. Hosts incredable helphul and welcoming.

Great romantic spot. Stefan and Naomi built a small paradise in the garden. Very good for quiet days and quiet nights. Wonderful walk past the river in the valley.

I had a pleasant experience in Stefan's rural house, it is a quiet place full of flowers, trees and fresh air. Everything in order and clean as advertised. I was able to extend my departure a few hours, thanks to good communication with Stefan. I'll be back to try the pool when it's less cold. Tuve una grata experiencia en la casa rural de Stefan, es un lugar tranquilo lleno de flores, árboles y aire puro. Todo en orden y limpio conforme a lo anunciado. Me fue posible extender algunas horas mi partida, gracias a la buena comunicación con Stefan. Volveré para probar la piscina cuando haga menos frío.
