We were welcomed at the house despite it being very late and Raul's mum showed us around. The house was lovely, clean and spacious. It had everything we needed. On the website, it said towels were included, but we decided to take our own, but there was no need to as there were more than enough towels. The house is in a development, but you definitely need a car to go anywhere. There is a super swimming pool nearby which we used on several occasions. It cost 2 euros 80 for adults and 2 euros for children. We ate at the Meson Viejo del Jamon which only cost us 9 euros 50 per head for a 3 course meal including wine. Make sure you leave plenty of time to visit Salamanca and don't miss the convent. The piscina natural is fabulous and not busy, a good drive, but well worth a visit. La Alberca is a beautiful Spanish village with a traditional Spanish atmosphere. We went to the tourist information where we were given a map with a trail that incorporates the main sites in the village. Raul is very good at answering any queries before you go. Overall, we had a lovely stay!
Maria kindly met us at the house. It has 4 reasonably sized bedrooms and Two bathrooms. Longe is comfortable but not enough seating for 8 adults. This was not a problem because we used the outside space which is well planned.
Be aware that there is no public transport and no restaurants in walking distance. We used the car to visit the beautiful city of Salamanca, 10 minute drive. Maria organised taxis for us on one night which were on time and decent value, €20 each way.
A very relaxing house after hot days in Salamanca. Maria did not speak English but she was very helpful.
