Six of us stayed here, 3 adults and 3 children.
The villa was lovely, really well equipped and nicely furnished. The pool was big, there were garden games, a big TV and a Wii, which were great for the children. The kitchen had everything you need to cook a great dinner. There's lovely seating areas outside, some open and some covered, so on the hot days we were happy to spend all day at the house!
The villa is in a nice estate, but is some 5 km from the nearest town, so you need a car to get anywhere. The nearest town is Tordesillas, a typical rural Spanish town, full of character but a bit run-down and hardly anyone speaks English! We loved it, but some people might find it a bit too off-the-beaten-track.
From the villa, we did trips out to Valladolid (lovely bustling city 20km away), Segovia (beautiful, but 2 hrs drive) and the ancient market towns nearby of Medina de Campo and Cuellar. We felt we were visiting 'real' Spain rather than the tourist spots.
A very relaxing week!
The apartment is located on the edge of Valladolid (15 min drive to the centre). It is a high quality apartment and was sparkling clean. It has two excellent bathrooms both of which have showers and there is one bath. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a large fridge-freezer. There is plenty of parking space just outside the flat and the balcony is a great place to enjoy sitting out on. It is a very quiet area and our sleep was undisturbed every night.
There is a community pool but be aware it doesnt open for use until mid-June.
There are plenty of supermarkets within a few minutes drive and the local bar is a 5 minute walk away.
Viviane was very helpful with suggestions of where to visit in the area.
If you are interested in having a beautiful, clean, excellently equipped place to base yourself so that you can explore the joys of Castile then this is THE PLACE to use. Avila, Salamanca, Zamora etc are all within 60-75 minutes driving from here and many other high points (Tordesillas, Medina Del Campo etc) are just 10-20 minutes away.
