The house is spacious and has been lovingly furnished in traditional Spanish style which makes it very authentic. The lounge is spectacular with its high ceiling and majestic windows. It is set in a very peaceful and rural setting surrounded by orchards and yet it is close too many areas of interests. The slight downside was the heat as the house would not cool down during the heatwave (maybe should we have made more use of the shutters?). My husband spent hours cycling in the stunning Sierra de Gredos, we visited numerous villages - our favourite being Poyales del Hoyo just 5 mns drive from the house. The natural pools were a hit with the children (11 & 12) and so were the go apes parks. The village fiestas are great fun - we recommend the one in Santa Cruz del Valle with its encierro (run of the bulls). We just about found the time to visit Avila which is 1hr 1/2 drive from the house and takes you through spectacular mountain scenery. Jose, the lovely owner, speaks excellent English and ensured that all was in place for us to enjoy our stay. Definitely a place to recommend - one of the best holidays we've had as a family!

We were two families of four and there was plenty of space everywhere for us all. It was so peaceful (until our children started running around causing chaos!). Juan was excellent - he took the children to collect the eggs on the first day and meet the animals (which was then a feature of each day following!), was incredibly helpful when we had any queries, were planning little walking trips or going out on bikes etc. - he really helped enhance our holiday experience. The pool, table tennis, badminton and golf facilities meant there was plenty of outdoor fun to keep us all entertained. The bikes were great for a trip into Guisando. Picking and eating cherries straight from the trees was a big highlight of my trip! The surrounding area was beautiful for little walks through the pine forests in the mountains. All in all we had a brilliant time, loved the house and the surrounding area and were sad to be leaving!
