We wanted to be surrounded by nature, tranquillity and the beauty of the countryside but not stuck in the middle of nowhere. We had read about Extremadura and it was obvious that Trujillo was the gem of the region. As soon as we saw Villa Moritos on the owner’s website, we knew we had found something special and were excited at the prospect of a holiday there. We weren’t disappointed!
The property and gardens are simply beautiful and exceeded our expectations. The website and photos really don’t do it justice. The bedrooms are large with high quality beds and linen. The air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms a welcome bonus. Every room in the house has French doors overlooking the gardens and the astounding views.
The accommodation strikes the perfect balance between luxury, comfort and cosiness.Our personal favourite was the terrace outside the master bedroom, where we had breakfast every day and at night enjoyed gazing at stars whilst taking in the beautiful scent of jasmine and orange blossom. Every sunset was different and spectacular! Not to be missed!
During the day, we relaxed in the magical gardens enjoying stunning uninterrupted views of the countryside. Surrounded by storks, eagles, and buzzards you can’t help but be transported back in time. The swimming pool kept all ages entertained and we ate our meals in the outdoor dining terrace which is takes al fresco dining to a whole new level. For an extra bonus, we treated ourselves to the in-house villa menu which was well worth the experience, home cooked local delicacies and the best creamy tortilla we have ever eaten!
We also visited the sights in Extremadura, well worth the short drive! We’d recommend the Roman ruins at Merida and wildlife at Monfrague.
We found the experience friendly and professional from the outset. Nothing was too much trouble for Angela and her team and we were made to feel welcome from our initial enquiry onwards. Trujillo is “unspoilt Spain” at its best and Villa Moritos one of the most wonderful villas we have ever stayed in! We would highly recommend a stay and look forward to returning for another holiday, even if it’s just the two of us. The owners also offer a small group rate. Unbeatable!
