Make a holiday apartment in La Vera your home away from home

La Vera holiday homes are in a scenic corner of the community of Extramadura. The scenery is made up of verdant deciduous woodland and farms, and there are lots of interesting natural and man-made sights to see close to La Vera apartments. Among them are picturesque medieval towns, large plantations, waterfalls and towering peaks to the north and east. When the time comes for a bit of rest and recuperation, a La Vera holiday home will come into its own, offering luxuries like pools and gardens. Accommodation here is rural in style, with converted farmhouses boasting wooden beams, antique furniture and limestone walls.

Things to do

-Nature: La Vera has a reputation extending back to Roman times for being one of Spain’s most fertile areas. Chestnut, cherry and oak trees provide habitats for all kinds of birdlife. There’s also an abundance of water, which has eroded impressive natural landmarks, including ravines and waterfalls. The region has no fewer than 46 different gorges, the most beautiful of which can be found at Garganta La Olla, Alardos, Minchones and Gualtaminos.

-Outdoor pursuits: This setting, with its hills, rivers and wild forests is a walker’s paradise. The farmland in the region is devoted to tobacco and chilli plantations, which create an environment different to anything encountered in Spain or indeed Europe. The local tourist board lists 20 different walking routes in the region, with natural sights like river sources, gorges and waterfalls to see. 

 

-Culture: Out and about some of the most beautiful pieces of La Vera’s heritage are the many bridges crossing the region’s ravines. These often date back to medieval or even Roman times. A must-see building is the Yuste Monastery, which was founded in the early 15th century and was where Charles V retired to in the mid-16th century, bringing an entourage of 60 with him. La Vera contains countless other monuments, including megalithic dolmens, renaissance palaces and gothic churches.  

-Plasencia: Just off the western tip of the La Vera region is this handsome city on the banks of the Jerte River. One of the unmissable sights here is the double line of city walls, which dates to the late-12th century and is punctuated by six gates and defended by 68 towers, all intact. Also impressive is the renaissance town hall and many churches, which include the medieval cathedral complex, which has Romanesque, gothic and renaissance elements.

-Food and drink: The main local product is paprika, which is a key ingredient for many Spanish dishes. The paprika produced here has designation of origin and is a vivid red colour with a very smoky flavour— an upshot of a slow drying process. Pork products are also important to the region, especially chorizo and cured ham. In summer be sure also to try the local forest fruits, such as cherries.

Weather in La Vera

La Vera has an unusual microclimate thanks in part to its topography, but also the distant influence of the Atlantic Ocean to the west. This gives it Mediterranean subtropical weather, with hot summers and temperate winters. Arrive at a holiday rental in La Vera between May and October and warm weather will be most likely warm and clear, although there is a chance of rainfall at all times of year. Spring and autumn conditions are pleasant though relatively damp, while winter conditions are mild in the valleys and cool on upper reaches.  

Travel to La Vera

The nearest major international airport to holiday apartments in La Vera is Madrid-Barajas (MAD), which is just over 200 kilometres to the east of the region. Madrid is the largest airport in Spain, and there’s a wide range of routes here from the UK. For most people visiting the La Vera region a car will be a necessity. The drive from Madrid takes around two and a half hours but is relatively easy as most of the journey is on the A-5, before switching to the EX-119 at Navalmoral de la Mata.
