  • Unbelievably beautiful and remote Spanish mountain retreat.
    5 of 5

    Fantastic stay at beautiful and well equipped Spanish “finca”. Children loved the pool, house, surroundings and especially feeding the donkeys daily! We would definitely return - but maybe with friends and we would definitely consider hiring a 4x4 rental car to negotiate the rugged 2km drive off the main road! House well equipped with small supermarkets 20-30 mins drive. Enjoyed restaurants, natural beach and “China” shop short drive away at Candeleda. So beautiful 😍 Had a wonderful holiday with breathtaking views, weather, scenery and beautiful garden.

  • A charming house surrounded by stunning scenary
    4 of 5

    We spent a fabulous 2 week family holiday at Las Escuelas. 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!
