Atmospheric Trujillo is just the right size to walk around in half a day, a steep jumble of medieval houses and streets lined with artisan shops filled with famous jamón, cheeses, honey and paprika. A short walk up through town and you’ll find your studio, a memorable spot for romantic couples. Large and open plan; all is white, light and inviting.
Inside, climb the glass and steel staircase to the (no-doors) mezzanine bedroom and little ensuite shower room. Downstairs between whitewashed walls dotted with canvased art, find a sofa bed for kids, an eco-pellet burner and the simple kitchen (stocked with the basics) which leads you to the quaint patio – a beautiful spot for alfresco dining and glimpsing the celebrated panorama.
The wonderful Monfragüe National Park is a must for hiking and bird watching (50km). For culture and history-packed days, head to Merida (Roman), Cáceres (medieval) and Guadalupe (monastery and shrine) – all an easy drive.
