The magical hamlet of Fuente Nueva, is made up of primarily cave dwellings, approximately 200 dwellings in all. Set in the Spanish Countryside, with outstanding views of the Sierra de Maria Mountain Range. Staying in this unspoiled hamlet, is to truly take a step back in time; when things moved at a much slower pace.  Making Fuente Nueva a great place to breath in the fresh airand to relax and unwind.



 The natural surroundings are breathtaking. From the sun-deck and terrace  of your holiday accommodation, you can take in and enjoy the dramatic contrast between the Mountain Range, the pine forests, the dry flat-lands and the pastoral planes, (where prehistoric animals once grazed) Fuente Nueva, is situated on the side of what was once, a vast prehistoric lake, where mammoths, sabre tooth tigers, rhinoceros, buffalo, bear and not least man came to drink.



Fuente Nueva, is a place of great paleontological and archaeological interest.  many of the remains of these magnificent pre-historic animals, can be viewed, in Orce?s Museum of Prehistory. To take a walk on one of the many footpaths and tracks in Fuente Nueva, you sense a oneness with the settlers of so long ago. You can imagine them hunting and fishing by the once great lake. As you walk the footpaths around the hamlet you cannot fail to notice pieces of ceramics and old utensils, from the settlers of so long ago'

 Fuente Neuva, makes a great Andalusian holiday base and really gives you the chance to experience all things Spanish, in Real and Unspoiled Spain


A visit to Orce, is also a step back in time and the medieval architecture offers many photographic opportunities. Orce is truly rich in historic and architectural heritage, as can be seen the fortress style castle, the Segura Palace of the 16th - 17th century and Orce's other stately homes. The architecture spans a millennium of cultural changes and are a true testament to Orce's historic past.


For a small village there is a wealth of amenities including supermarket, butchers, banks, green grocers, fish mongers and freshwater swimming pool. The village also has a number of good bars and restaurants, most of which give free tapes with drinks. They are all traditionally Spanish and very welcoming. As is the way with the Southern Spanish, local cooking and traditions are taken seriously.

The local restaurants serve the most delicious food but the renowned Segureña Lamb, is one of the best dishes to try out in Orce. Traditionally the local economy was based on agriculture and breeding livestock, with a particular emphasis on the famous segureña lamb. Although rural tourism also now contributes to the local economy. Orce is an all year round place to holiday especially during Fiesta times. The combination of all these elements, promises that a visit to Orce will be a real delight to the senses.
