The Experience

Arrive along a two-kilometre dirt track to a gloriously wild hotel, bursting with colour, greenery and birdsong. Snuggle up around big open fires, read a good book in the library, lounge in hammocks in the garden or under cover in the courtyard – there’s a wonderfully warm feel. Rooms are wacky – bare concrete walls covered with paintings and furnishings from all over the world; the beams are from monasteries and old wood doors from Madrid houses.

Breakfast, brought to the long friendly table, is worth rising for: freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit, eggs from the chickens with local cheeses and hams. The homemade cake is excellent too.

There’s plenty of wildlife to spot on the estate: head off deer stalking or settle into the hide to spot nesting storks. Gaze out on the foothills of the sierra (2 of the rooms have terraces); the hiking and cycling are excellent and you can reach the top in about an hour and a half on foot.

It is definitely special! With the sun streaming in from the high Sierra Gaudarrama over the distant 12th Century church to this oasis of calm and charm and birdsong, where could be nicer? Cristina's attention to detail is flawless, from the internal courtyard bursting with colour to the fascinating little pepper and salt pots from Morocco ..... we loved it.

Jan, Sawday's inspector

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!

Robert

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.

Location

The neighbourhood

The hotel is set in hectares of grounds; the nearest village is Sotosalbos (15 minutes’ walk) - a tiny village with two restaurants and one bar and a beautiful church. Head 30 minutes to historic Segovia for a castle, cathedral and aqueduct. Madrid is only an hour away.

Introducing

Cristina Gómez López

Cristina and Alejandro spent four years building their dream place when they moved over in 2007 from Sao Paolo; now they live here with daughter Cristina, a couple of horses, a donkey and a happy dog. They’re both friendly, welcoming and lively – ask them for maps and advice on the area.
