The villa has with all the strength and splendor of the Sierra de Gredos (range of mountains) on one side, and the Valley of Tietar and “La Vera” on the other, creating spectacular sights from the house throughout the year. The farmland is surrounded by a number of gorges, some of them stand out for their natural swimming pools like the ones of “Chilla”, “Alardos” and “Santa María”, and we can’t leave out “Tejea” or “Blanca”.
For those who wish to stay for lunch or dinner we offer carefully and slowly cooked traditional food. On Saturdays we have the popular “cocido” (stew made of meat, bacon, and chickpeas) which wakens your senses since early in the morning. But not less popular are the “carillas” with tomato (a small soft bean grown in this area), tomato soup, asparagus from “La Vera”, lean with peppers, fried piglet or kid and good beef.
We must not leave out the vegetables and fruits of the land which you can taste any other day of the week. There is a vegetable garden and an orchard with orange, lemon, avocado, pear and other fruit trees, as well as centenary olive and fig trees in our farmland.
To mention its climate, owing to our privileged geographic position we can enjoy a micro climate which cherry trees and peppers to be grown and our streets to be decorated with orange and palm trees.
Our villa is a ground floor building, which has walls 60 centimeters wide made of stone on the outside and wood work on the outside and the inside. This makes it suitable for keeping coolness in the summertime and the warmth of the heating in winter. There are five double bedrooms all of them with bathroom and each one looking on a different sight of the mountains of Gredos or the valley of Tietar.
The lounge has a timber ceiling six meters high which makes you feel a special and comfortable spaciousness enjoying the warmth of the fireplace and together with the dinning and living areas makes it possible to create different atmospheres at any time. From the lounge there is a forged staircase which leads to the games parlor. There, you can find a billiard table, table games, as well as a large library with a great choice of books of all genre, you can also enjoy the sight from a bay window and be delighted by the landscape, and watch at night - with or without telescope - the stars in all their splendor.
