Make a holiday rental home or villa in Extremadura, Spain your home away from home

Extremadura is one of Spain’s last untouched regions. Located to the north of Andalucia, Extremadura is an amazing region with a truly unique culture, which has clear Portuguese influences, some of the finest Roman ruins in the whole of Spain and landscapes that will melt your heart. The region is a hidden treasure, and one which you feel guilty telling people about, but once you have taken self catering Extremadura accommodation once, you will return many, many times.

Shops and Things to do in Extremadura, Spain

It is hard to know where to start with shops and things to do in Extremadura, Spain. There are far too many historic sites of importance to mention in such a short guide to Extremadura, although the towns of Caceres and Merida cannot escape a mention. There are more than 50 megalithic monuments in Extremadura, as well as some of the most beautiful castles, synagogues and roman fountains that you could possibly imagine. An Extremadura villa really is a historian’s dream, but the sites are of such beauty and interest, anyone can get carried away, regardless of your historic interest, or lack thereof!

The countryside is stunningly beautiful, with absolutely no shortage of trails to walk and ride horses along. The Monfrague National Park is of special mention, found in the north of the region, and extremely worth exploring from any self catering holiday villa in Extremadura, Spain. The park is especially popular with bird watchers and nature lovers, with a huge range of bird species being spotted in the park, form stork to black vulture. Lynx are also spotted in the park as well as a great range of other creatures. There is limited access to some areas of the park, as conservation is key. The national parks of Sierra de San Pedro and Sierra San Mamede are more open to visitors, and equally wildlife rich.

Anyone with a love for food will be right in their element from Extremadura accommodation too. Iberian pork is a hugely important part of local diets, and the game, boar and venison is absolutely sensational. You shall never want for good food from an Extremadura villa, and the local wine is superb.

Places to visit on holiday in Extremadura, Spain

Merida is a phenomenal town. Home to undoubtedly the most impressive roman ruins in Spain, and the most unknown, Merida is well worth exploration. The sites have been declared as UNESCO world heritage sites, which is extremely understandable, especially when you set eyes in the astonishing theatre and amphitheatre.

Weather in Extremadura, Spain

Extremadura acts as a perfect escape throughout the year. Even the coldest month, January, sees monthly average temperatures of 8?C, with daily peak temperatures usually threatening the 15?C mark. During the long, hot summer months, you can expect daily peak temperatures well into the 30’s, with blissfully balmy evenings from June right through until the end of October.

Travel to Extremadura, Spain

A hire car is an essential asset when staying in Extremadura accommodation, as the area is wonderfully rural and the attractions are spread across a large area, unlike the man made haunts of the rest of Spain. Lisbon Airport (LIS) in Portugal is fantastically well served by flights from the UK, and hire cars are in abundance. The airport is around 2 hours from the centre of the region, but the journey is worth it a thousand times over.

comfortable rural accommodation in remote part of Spain

4 of 5
The focus of our holiday was to see and photograph the Vultures and other birds in Monfrague National Park which is an hour or so drive away and well worth seeing. The weather was appalling for much of our stay with wind and driving rain; Maria assured us this was unusual. She was helpful and friendly and the accommodation was comfortable and fairly well equipped for cooking. Internet speed was glacial which was perhaps a reflection of the remoteness of the site. We had a great view over Berzocana which you can walk down to very quickly, although in April nothing was open and I'm not sure if there would be much more going on in the summer. I imagine it would be a delightful place to stay in good weather. We may come back!

The holiday house of a lifetime!

5 of 5
When we were driving up in the car we were all so excited but we weren't expecting what we did get. The house was spectacular with all the rooms very well done. It had everything you needed and more for your comfort. The house had floor to ceiling windows which allowed you to see the view all the time (even when you were washing up). There is a lovely combined kitchen and living room (which is the main room) allowing you to have lots of room.All the beds are double beds and really comfortable. The outside was even better there was the glistening pool and the beautiful views. We all enjoyed sitting beside the pool in the sun reading our books with the lovely view right in front of our eyes. The pool was perfect for cooling yourself down, playing games and proper swimming. It was always clean with a very helpful man coming every other day to clean it. The view you had was the Sierra de Gredos mountains. There was also the table tennis table which every one of us enjoyed playing. The heat was lovely and warm and it was perfect to sunbathe in and get a good tan. We were there for twenty one days and it shone every day. There was a little village near the house where you had everything you needed: several bakeries, patisserie, super market , sweet shop, pharmacy and lots of lovely cafes and restaurant. In the villages every body was so cheerful and they were also so happy to help you. Nearby were also some rock pools which we enjoyed having a swim in and then eating pepas on the rocks, you could go and listen to the water rushing and watch fish swim by. I would highly recommend this house for people to stay in as you would have an amazing time and great fun. Hans and Viveca are so helpful and friendly and welcomed us so warmly into their home. So anybody who is looking at renting out this house should not hesitate! Written by Rosie age 10
