Overview

About the property

For 6 people, 4 bathrooms, living room, fireplace, barbecue, garden, terrace, views

The House of the Hill is located in the Regional Park of Gredos in Barajas, Navarredonda de Gredos (Ávila), 4 km of access to the platform Gredos, 62 km from Avila and a mile from the Parador de Gredos.

It has three double rooms with private bathroom and TV in each, central heating, fireplace (stove), porch, spacious living room and great views.

It sleeps 6 persons but on the orange room you can put an extra bed for two people. There is a sofa that converts into a comfortable bed of 1.50, with latex mattress.

Our intention is that customers feel comfortable here and find peace, comfort and rest while enjoying the exceptional beauty of Gredos and the many activities that can be practiced.

Now I will tell you something about how great the house that I hope will be of interest and use. It is a new building but old techniques and local materials were used: thick stone walls, pine and chestnut, gateway to two waters, mud floor, Moorish tiles, etc.

For interior decoration look that was rustic but with a modern twist

mostly it was comfortable and cozy. Therefore, each room has its own bathroom and TV. It also has central heating, fireplace (wood stove), comfortable sofas, television in the living room and every bedroom. The kitchen is equipped with sufficient utensils and appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, blender, juicer, etc.).

Some trivia: the tables rooms are replicas, made by my father, former "tajuelas" used to wash in the river. The curtains in the cupboards were also common in the rooms and alcoves before, and light cords mimic the old. Notable chestnut beamed ceilings and open design of the room.

N. OFFICIAL REGISTRATION IN TOURISM: CR-AV-576.

Notes:
La Casa del Altozano is a semi-detached house with another house, with separate entrance, where the owners reside temporarily. It is not an isolated or in the countryside, but in the people and with neighbors, so it is not recommended if you are looking for a place to have a party or similar. However the walls of the rooms they have in common both houses are soundproofed so you have complete privacy and autonomy. The garden is common, but as a large estate is no problem of interference. In the houses there will be no more occupation that is notified when booking. You can not cook in the fireplace. In the house of the Hill we not charge firewood, just ask the responsible use of energy sources. Pets are allowed advance notice when booking and if the owners take responsibility for any damage caused by the animal. The house will be left and collected and placed clean dishes.

Casa con encanto

  • 5 of 5

Bonita casa para pasar unos días, tanto en verano como en invierno, en un entorno privilegiado. La casa muy coqueta, con una decoración muy cuidada y todas las comodidades. Fuimos tres parejas y agradecimos el tener nuestra habitación con baño independiente. A destacar también la amabilidad de su propietaria Eva. Muchas gracias por todo Eva, volveremos sin duda.

La casa del Altozano

  • 5 of 5

Una casa muy acogedora a la que no le falta detalle alguno, con unas habitaciones cómodas y con encanto, en una zona ideal para ir con niños, mascotas o en pareja. Actividades y sitios en los alrededores para ver y disfrutar, un lugar para relajarse y desconectar del estrés de la gran ciudad, y con los paisajes singulares de la sierra de Gredos. Y luego está Eva, la dueña, que se desvive en atenciones .

Para repetir

  • 5 of 5

La casa está genial, es espaciosa, calentita y acogedora, tiene todo lo que se puede necesitar. Eva, la dueña, te deja como regalo de bienvenida vino dulce y unas pastas, riquísimo! La chimenea encendida... Además, ella es un encanto.

Fuimos tres parejas a pasar un fin de semana y lo estuvimos muy bien, nos gustó mucho esta casa (a parte de porque es muy bonita) porque admitían perretes y tenía un jardín gigante donde poder jugar y corretear.

Volveremos sin duda! Espero que la gente lo disfrute como nosotros.

magnifica

  • 5 of 5

Súper recomendable. Estuvimos un puente de mayo, y la experiencia fue fantástica. La casa es preciosa, con muchísimo encanto. De hecho, las fotografías no le hacen justicia. Es muy amplia, confortable, cálida, los baños son estupendos, las camas comodísimas, con todas las comodidades, y está decorada con mucho gusto. La parcela está fenomenal, muy grande y con una barbacoa fantástica. Las vistas son preciosas, ya que se ven todas las cumbres. Nosotros tuvimos mucha suerte, y estuvieron cuajadas de nieve, así que levantarse y ver ese paraje, no tiene precio. Y para rematarlo, Eva es un auténtico encanto. No sólo nos ayudaba en todo, ý ofrecía todo tipo de información, sino que además nos dejaba torrijas y rosquillas caseras todos los días!!! Vinimos encantadísimos, y seguro repetiremos.
