The property:

This beautiful artist's cave house was owned by my mother, it is tranquil and quirky.  It has now passed on to us, Morag, Ian and our daughters. We are based in the UK and love to come here to the community and to spend time in my mother's beautiful home. It is a wonderful area to explore. We are the last house on the track as the village turns into open hillside. Our nearest neighbours are artists, when you take a walk down the riverbed in-front of the house, you will find sculptures made from local river stones. You can walk for hours in the area around the house, the wildlife is superb, birds, bees, butterflies, frogs and cicadas, if you are lucky you might spot a chameleon, gecko or another type of lizard.

There are no shops or bars in Grima, but you will hear the horn of the bread van arriving in the village 3 days a week with really good fresh bread and cakes.  You will need a car staying here.

2km to nearest shops and a wonderful (inexpensive) roadside tapas bar.

Within 15 minutes you can drive to a range of stunning deserted beaches, beautiful coves with beachside bars and great tapas, towns with banks and large supermarkets etc.

Climate

This part of Spain has sunshine for an average of 320 days of the year. In the daytime temperature in the winter rarely goes below 17°C, in the summer it goes up to the a little above 30°C.  The deeper parts of the cave, being underground, maintain a temperature of between 17 to 23°C through out the year, there are wall mounted electric heaters for the winter months, but it will feel pleasantly cool in the heat of the summer. Whist you can get some torrential rain storms these are very rare.
