La cueva came into existence by joining a ruined house, a neglected chicken pen and a total ruin. We renovated everything with lots of care and love to the detail, trying to include mainly local materials, like wood, river cane, esparto, stone and terracotta. The result are two houses, La Estrella and El Sol, both very rustic and cosy and at the same time elegant, mixing its own distinct character with a Moorish charm.
There is an inner patio with 2 Moorish style sitting areas, a unique solarheated Jacuzzi complete with waterfall set into a cave and a nearly 100 m²roof top terrace with 2 pergolas and barbecue. Enjoy the magnificent views all over the valley.
We are situated in the biggest of the 3 Guajar villages, 20 minutes inland from the coast.
This somehow overlooked little jewel offers something for everybody. Away from the tourist hussle-buzzle on the coast, you take a dip into rural Andalusia, here you will experience how time seems to have stood still. Swing in the hammock and soak up the village noises, he mules that go past or Jacinto the local fishmonger as he shouts “Vamos pecao" (come and buy fish) or the veggie seller“ niña papas”.
Or take a refreshing dip in the cave Jacuzzi a very original place to while a day away.
In the evening take your favourite drink, sit up on the terrace and watch the moon rise or set or on moonless nights explore the milky way or count the shooting stars, always with a secret wish. Or visit us over here at La Rueda for a chat and some coffee and cake.
Directly from the house start short and also longer walks to explore the local mountains. A bit further on you will pass through a small gorge and then come to Guajar Alto, the smallest of the 3 Guajar villages. Wander along the different mule tracks past and through Mediterrenean Olive-Orange-Avocado and Chirimoya groves.
Enjoy the almond blossom that starts in February and succumb to the perfume of the orange blossom in March. Watch the farmers in the planting season or at harvest time. The nearest beach is 20 minutes away and a little bit further you will find still rather untouched and romantic coves.
Granada with its famous Alhambra, its charming, Moorish Albayzin and its quaint old town is only 1 hr away. The cosy and original villages of the Alpujarra with its crystal clear streams, refreshing river pools and the snow covered 3000m mountains always invite you to hike and explore and are only 45 minutes away.
The most important airport, Malaga, is about 1 hr from here, you can also fly into Almeria (1hr) or Granada (1hr.). Most guests rent a car (ask us for rentals), but we are also reachable by public transport.

Mr. Stefan Told
I speak: German, English, French and Spanish
What can we tell you about us? We, that is the boss, Stefan and his foreign wife Naomi and of course the lazy cat Blackey.(He,Austrian, she,British;cat, 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...
