Cuevas al Jatib

When I booked by stay at one of the Al Jatib cave homes, I wasn’t quite convinced of its charm. Sleeping in a cave: I imagined it to be a claustrophobic, humid and spooky experience. I was so wrong!

When I arrived at the apartments in the hills of gorgeous Granada, it was like walking straight into a fairytale. The cute little white houses were carved from the rock with so many authentic details. They are light, spacious and squeaky clean on the inside. Plus, there is a beautiful swimming pool outside! As my thoughts sank deeper into the fairytale, I heard Luc Compoit, the owner, laughing behind me. My enthusiasm had made him laugh. He said: ‘Don't forget to try our hammam and Arabic tea house'. What a unique location. No ghosts, all fairies!

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
