Myself and my wife stayed here for 10 nights in September with friends and totally loved it. We rented the Cortijo and found it to be incredibly comfortable, well-equipped, beautifully maintained and roomy. The house is much bigger than expected and easily accommodated six of us. We made full use of the front and side terraces and the outdoor table round the back was great for eating at. The pool was kept clean and was very refreshing when it got a bit hot.
It was beautifully designed and wish that we had had more time to enjoy the full range of books and dvds provided.
The photos do not give justice to the great siting of the house beneath the rocky ridge and the views across the olive groves to the front.
The location was perfect for our holiday as it gave easy access to the towns of Trujillo and Caceres. We also enjoyed walks to nearby Montanchez for coffee and beer in the square and the many jamon shops. The bakery in someone's front room just off the square had nice bread and pastries. Birdwatching sites such as Monfrague and the Serena plains were also within easy travelling distance.
Pippa and Manfred were available when needed, but did not intrude upon our privacy.
Thoroughly recommended and would love to revisit in the spring.
