Finca Fuente Techada

Sotosalbos, Segovia

Exquisite small hotel bordering National Park of Guadarrama, an hour from Madrid. Hike in the sierra, spend the day in Segovia… what bliss


6 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Sotosalbos is a tiny village: two restaurants, one bar, no shops, and a two-kilometre dirt road that delivers you to heaven. Cristina & Alejandro spent four years building their dream place; now they live here with daughter Cristina, a couple of horses, a donkey and two happy dogs. The style is local (wood, stone, plaster, slate), the decoration is exquisite, and the grounds are gloriously wild. The house is built on two floors: bedrooms up, public spaces below, and an internal patio bursting with greenery. There are big open fires stacked with logs, fat sofas, bright kelims, friends’ paintings, lovely lighting, a library lined with books, a drinks cupboard with free drinks.  Beams from monasteries and old wood doors from Madrid houses give a wonderfully warm feel, and the wide terrace has glass panels to keep winter at bay. But you can still gaze out on the foothills of the sierra, and the walking is marvellous. Bedrooms are beautiful, two with terraces, and bathrooms are stunning (anti-misting mirrors, tiles from Morocco). Breakfast, brought to the long friendly table, is worth rising for.

Beautiful country house decorated with love and style in a tranquil environment. The owners (Cristina & Alejandro) always available and pleased to help at anytime, nothing was too much trouble for them. Bedrooms very cosy, inviting and spotless. No TV or A/C in the bedrooms, but nights are cool and who needs a TV when you are trying to relax? Breakfast is superb, assortments of pastries and cakes, eggs from their own chickens, breads and Iberico Ham. Keep in mind this is a proper Bed and Breakfast, so you have to go out for lunch and dinner, but the town is very close by. We'll come back.

What a delight! Everything other reviewers say about charm and attentiveness is true. They don't mention the dogs though - as friendly and welcoming as the owners! What Englishman doesn't like coming home to a welcoming dog? It's also a good birding/wildlife centre - in fact the poor people are currently losing hens to the local fox. What will become of those lovely free-range eggs? That reminds me - food! It was delicious, as was the accompanying local wine. Sadly we'd booked only one night on our way to the Bilbao ferry. Next year we’ll be back for longer and bring friends too.


If you stay in only one Sawdays property make sure it's this one. Architecturally stunning, beautiful location, every detail thought of and the most wonderfully welcoming hosts who could not have been more helpful. Finca Fuente Techada is the epitome of true style.


A very beautiful place. Luxuriously furnished with comfortable places to sit and admire the scenery. Cristina and Alejandro cannot do too much for you. We were part of a party of 10 and the place comes alive with a group of friends. Whether you are recharging your batteries or wanting a base for exploring the area, look no further!


Superb Finca near Segovia. We stayed a week, in a group of 10 friends. Lovely bedroom with two terraces, huge bed, wonderful bathroom, hammocks in the garden, masses of quiet spaces and comfortable chairs everywhere. Cristina and Alejandro are totally delightful and can't do enough to make the stay most enjoyable. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful but they are so happy to suggest places to visit, lovely churches and villages, scenic drives; and a tour of the estate is a must! Good restaurants in the little village and a superb early Romanesque church. What more to ask! We'll be back asap.
