“What a magical place Emma and Cesar have! Their house is very pretty, comfortable and perfectly shaded for the summer heat. There were plenty of toys and books for our 4 and 5 year old. The beds beds were comfy! All around the outside of the house are lovely places to sit and enjoy the immediate area - which is stunning. The house is nestled in the foothills of mountains and very rural - only the grass hoppers to hear! The garden is large and full of curiosities to explore. The pretty pool was a massive highlight for us as the children swam around five times a day! For me sitting by the pool was my favourite activity (if you can call it an activity :-) ) due to the gorgeous views! Our hosts are potters and allowed us to use their clay and studio - my son and husband in particular loved this! A pretty unique bonus to our holiday. A short drive away is the picturesque village of Villanueva de la Vera for shopping and cafes. We were admittedly not terribly adventurous because we were all so happy at the house but we did swim in one of the pools in the river recommend by Emma. Crystal clear, cool water and plenty deep enough to swim. A secluded spot with river fish to watch. I felt like I had found my mountain home - I cannot express enough what a lovely, relaxing time we had. We would absolutely love to return! Emma and Cesar were excellent hosts with great communication and they were generous and thoughtful too, leaving our house immaculate for our arrival back. Thank you thank you!!”
Where is it?
We are located in a stunning valley on the southern slopes of the Gredos Mountain Range 2hrs west of Madrid.
This is a well known area for its outstanding Natural beauty and amazing rivers with natural pools. Plenty of lovely walks in the mountains and along the valley... Monfrague Natural Park is a must !!
The house is located 5kms from the village and is accessed by a well maintained track.
Many charming villages including ours have well preserved historic centres and other interesting historical sites and bigger cities are within a short drive. Our local village has a good selection of shops and basic services. Lots of restaurants with simple home cooked food can be found in the villages along the valley. Children are very welcomed everywhere!! This is real Spain at its best...
