El Milano Real
c/Toleo 2, 05634 Hoyos del Espino,
Castile and León, Spain
Surrounded by the Gredos mountains, this has the feel of a smart Swiss chalet, with shutters on all sides and big views. Inside, all is comfort and ease. There are good-sized bedrooms and several rather plush suites to suit every taste; each is different and all are colour-coordinated. Two are Japanese, stunning with futon and low furniture, another resembles a Manhattan penthouse; another is country English; the Nordic room has its very own sauna. There are two lounges with matching sofas and armchairs, one up under the eaves, and a library and an observatory complete with computerised telescope. The knowledgeable owner, Paco, is a keen astronomer and wine buff and is happy to share his passions with guests. But the food is the biggest draw, winning a mention in many guides; there's also a tempting wine list. Paco and his wife Teresa have compiled their own walking and horse riding routes that take you into the heart of the Sierra de Gredos. Recover from your exertions – or just pamper yourself – in the smart new spa. Good restaurants and bars are just a few minutes' walk away.
