Stunning views in peaceful setting

  • 4 of 5

It was a little hard to find and 4.5km down a narrow windy road with a steep entrance to the properties. Well worth the effort , this is a beautiful setting , the casita is well thought out with very comfortable bed , hob and fridge with a freezer section. We had plenty of hot water and the shower was powerful although there were only two of us and the house could fit a family of four. The owners were friendly and very helpful . The swimming pool area is unusual for U.K. residents as it was clean but had a lot of green algae and frogs but I think this is normal in Spain. It was a delight to sit in the shaded patio area looking at the views and listening to the water running and the frogs. We took our two dogs and they mixed easily with the owners dogs who are very placid. There is no wifi ( or tv ) in the house but you can relax in the large patio area or dining area attached to the main house and use the internet . There is a washing machine and washing line. We stayed in April and temperatures were unusually high at max 29-30*C , the house was always cool and we always slept well. Cabeza la vaca is a charming village with many bars and restaurants, a shop and tabac .

This accommodation is perfect for a quiet , relaxing holiday in a beautiful area with stunning views.

schnuckeliges kleines Haus in totaler Stille und mitten in der Natur

  • 5 of 5

Das kleine Haus befindet sich auf einem privaten Grundstück mitten in der Sierra Tentudia. Es ist sehr sauber gehalten und für einfache Verhältnisse komfortabel. Die umgebende Natur ist traumhaft für Naturliebhaber und bietet viele Wandermöglichkeiten. Unseren Aufenthalt haben wir sehr genossen und die Besitzer Carmen und Andres sind sehr sympatische angenehme Leute und sind für Anfagen aller Art für Einen da. Wir würden jederzeit dort wieder absteigen daher die vole Punktezahl.

Reposant et enrichissant

  • 5 of 5

Séjour de 15 jours d'une famille composée d'un adulte et de deux jeunes (18 et 14 ans).

La maison est située à 4 km de Cabeza la Vaca, et accessible par une route non goudronnée mais praticable avec un véhicule tourisme (Golf III dans notre cas). Cette situation garantit un calme absolu, et permet de rayonner aisément sur trois régions (Extrémadure et Andalousie pour l'Espagne, Alentejo pour le Portugal). Nous avons ainsi pu visiter Séville, Cordoue, Ronda, Mérida et Evora ainsi que de nombreuses autres villes moins connues mais également très intéressantes.

Le gîte n'est pas climatisé, mais l'aération naturelle permet de bonnes conditions d'ambiance malgré la chaleur du mois d'août, y compris pour les enfants qui passent la nuit dans la mezzanine.

L'équipement était adapté à nos besoins, mais certains pourront regretter l'absence d'un compartiment réfrigéré à -18°C (surgelés et glaces) ainsi que d'un four (conventionnel et à micro-ondes).

Les propriétaires sont particulièrement aimables, attentifs et serviables (prêt d'une lampe de chevet supplémentaire, don de légumes du jardin, ménage et change de linge à l'issue d'une semaine). Carmen parle assez bien français, ce qui ne m'a pas tellement arrangé car je comptais améliorer mon castillan...

En plus de la "maisonnette des maquis" que nous avions louée, le site comporte également la maison des propriétaires et quelques quelques logements mitoyens à cette maison et bien intégrés au paysage. Les personnes qui les occupaient pendant notre séjour étaient tous espagnols, discrets et courtois.

Au total, un excellent séjour, à la fois reposant et enrichissant.

Owner's Response: Nous vous remercions de votre opinion Bernar généreuse, qui va sûrement servir à d'autres voyageurs d'avoir une idée claire des caractéristiques de notre maison et son emplacement. Je note des suggestions sur le four et le réfrigérateur et bien sûr nous allons envisager d'améliorer le confort de notre petit logement. Pour nous, ce fut un plaisir de vous avoir ici ces jours-ci et vous voir profiter de vos vacances. Nous aimé avoir de petites conversations avec vous pour pratiquer notre français et de là, nous envoyons nos salutations chaleureuses à vous et à vos enfants et leur souhaitons beaucoup plus de voyages à travers le monde et dans certains nous retrouvons ici.

Car: recommended

ideal for walking along the trails get lost and discover beautiful landscapes, to unwind and enjoy nature and the surrounding villages, knowing their culture, cuisine and its people instead. To verify that time is much slower than we think and to enjoy every evening a beautiful sunset.
