The Experience

Down the long track to a cosy, three storey house, built in 1869, now beautifully restored but with original slate floors and vaulted ceilings intact. You’re surrounded by holm oaks, olive and fruit trees and glorious views of the landscape – all the way to the medieval town of Trujillo on the horizon. The charming ground floor space has an open-plan living and dining room, an integrated kitchen with immense old fireplace and, up in the attic, a games room with a Smart TV.

Eat on the veranda outside the kitchen when it’s warm, sit on the terrace in the garden, cool off in the pool with views, watch the sunsets while listening to many birds. Hone your skills on a mini-football pitch, get stuck into table tennis, or simply doze with a book.

The welcome pack overflows with vegetables, seasonal fruits, eggs and pastries from local suppliers, olive oil from the house, wine if you request. Stock up in town (15kms) or eat out a bit nearer.

Typical old house refurbished to be comfortable given the available space, in the middle of the countryside, ideal for families willing to enjoy nature and a peaceful environment. In the middle of Extremadura, a good spot to visit the area including natural scenarios and national parks (Monfragüe, Ibores and Villuercas) and also great historical towns like Trujillo, Guadalupe, Cáceres or Mérida

The neighbourhood

This is one of the most wonderful areas in the world for botanists and birdwatchers. There are rare flora and fauna, along with hundreds of different bird species including the griffon vulture, black stork and imperial eagle. The dark skies mean you can also stargaze most nights of the year while enjoying a nightcap on the veranda. You're close to culture, art and stunning medieval architecture. The area is called Sierra de los Lagares, a few kilometres from Trujillo, Cáceres, Guadalupe or Mérida, some of the most important historical heritage sites in Spain, with palaces, monuments and buildings of Roman, Visigoth, Muslim, Jewish and Christian times.

Local points of interest from Pablo Volpi Cundines

  • Casa el Zorzal is located just a few kilometres from cities full of history and heritage treasures such as Trujillo, Cáceres, Guadalupe and Mérida. A short distance away is the Monfragüe National Park, a paradise for ornithologists.
  • Trujillo, one of Spain's medieval jewels, has been declared an city of Cultural Interest and is a historical heritage site. Its historical ensemble includes palaces, monuments and buildings of Roman, Visigoth, Muslim, Jewish and Christian style.
  • Cáceres has one of the most complete historical-artistic centres in Europe and it was declared a World Heritage Site. Cáceres is considered one of the most important medieval and Renaissance sites in the world.
  • The "Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Helga de Alvear"in Cáceres, brings together the most complete private collection of contemporary art in Europe,and is is one of the new tourist attractions in this fascinating medieval city.
  • Our house is located in one of the most biodiverse areas in Europe, with up to 337 species of birds, making it a paradise for ornithologists and nature lovers. The Monfragüe National Reserve is just a few Km away from the house.
  • Mérida is the Roman city with one of the most important heritages in the world. It's theatre, amphitheatre and circus are perpetual vestiges of the Roman period. The museum, built by Pritzker Award winner Rafael Moneo, is a must!


Pablo Volpi Cundines

Pablo (Spanish mother, Italian father) is well-travelled but now settled in Spain. He uses the house himself when it is available but otherwise lives in Madrid. His background is in advertising. A local lady cleans every three days, or more often if you want.
