Days out

Casa Isadora is on the boarder between Almeria and Murcia regions in Spain. Being just 6 km from the sea, means that you can visit different beaches most days.  If you want to explore a little of the rich history then we are a short drive from the ancient and beautiful city of Cartagena, with a port, cathedral, great restaurants, shops and a Roman amphitheatre amongst its attractions.

We are around an hour away from Almeria and 1 hr 15 from Murcia, each are bustling cities with great markets, restaurants and shopping. Steeped in history Almeria has a Moorish fort to explore (this is free to get in, but look up times as it closes for the siesta). Murcia has a strong food culture and a fabulous cathedral amongst other attractions. 

Grenada and the stunning Unesco protected Alhambra Palace is about 2.5 hours drive from our cave house rental. On the way you will pass amazing countryside and numerous ancient cave settlements.  

We are close to the Cabo de Gato Natural Park, with miles coastline to explore as well as wonderful rock formations, wildlife and walks. There are abandoned gold mines nearby, or why not drive inland to the remaining film sets where they filmed the spaghetti westerns.

Luna Cable Park is a fabulous place if you want to get onto the water and indulge in wake boarding, kayaking or paddle boarding.  Situated in a reservoir just 25 minutes drive from our holiday house. Visit their website here:

When I am able to visit Spain in the winter or spring, I like to walk in the hills and explore. The hills will be covered with flowers, wildlife and wherever you go you will hear bird song. The area around Casa Isadora, although an agricultural area, is so open that you can walk for miles in any direction from the doorstep of the cave house. Follow the river bed downstream and you will be surrounded by numerous sculptures made by our wonderful neighbours and their guests. This really is a fabulous place to just hang out, gaze at the view and get away from it all.  Enjoy!
