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.
