Hi Helen - yes I live in Galera and have had my cave for 4 years now. This is a lovely area and cave living is the best! I hope you enjoy your visit and find somewhere you like.

All the very best,

Hi there Sue,
Wow !! Congratualtions on your stunning cave!! Absolutely beautiful...though I should say too large [and surely too expensive] for me.
Really like the website too. sorry that youre selling though. Would it be rude to ask why? Surprised

Hi And welcome.

Yes, once you’ve got the 'cave bug', it is almost impossible to get rid of it (smile). One of the key symptoms of this 'bug' is you try and get your cave fix, when ever possible.

For us, as soon as we returned from one cave holiday, we booked the next. In between we spent hours and hours abd hours, albino looking at caves for sale on the internet. Until we realised we had to have one!

It took four years from discovering caves to becoming cave dwellers. We are now coming up to our third year as cave dwellers and not a day goes by, that we don’t pinch ourselves and count our lucky stars for discovering these amazing houses. cheers

Yes I certaibly intend to come and visit the area and to stay [ in a cave siguro] for quite a while before I would ever consider buying a cave to live in.....but it already really really looks as though it will be the way forward for me in the future. Still got a while to work out here in Botswana yet though.....probably another 18 months. Then hope to take some time to check things out. Are you living in La Galera/ Huescar or another area?
Thanks for your communication. Much appreciated. Cant wait to see what theyre really like.............
lol! Helen PS how about a few photos of your wonderful cave?????? sunny

I live in the sleepy hamlet of Fuente Nueva, not far from Galera and Huescar.

The hamlet sits on what was once a vaste pre-historic lake, where the remains of many pre-historic, great mammals have been found. We are surrounded by the most amazing scenery and you can walk or cycle for miles into the Campo, (countryside) local forest or mountains and not see a soul. Well maybe the odd goat herder.

I agree with Santamaria, although she is underselling the area in a bid to keep it as it is. They offer wonderful hospitality there too. Very Happy

Cave Bunny wrote:Yes Helen, it's fairly accurate, although my eyes are grey green, not blue. My belly is quite fat, but I have smaller feet. It was the closest I could get. This is also a good likeness... albino but thankfully my teeth aren't as big.

Benamaurel is very nice and convenient for Baza. Actually, almost everywhere is nice in the Altiplano.

Like the ideas Cave Bunny. This is me.....maybe..... and always wishing I had a cave!
