I am Maria Pia Sanchez, I have a degree in Law and Diploma in Economics. I like nature of all things and I am a lover of Dehesa. I love that others can enjoy a natural paradise as the La Rinconada. A priest who was in Calamonte, the nearest town, called it "the promised land" when he saw her for the first time. Be there, is lost among birdsong, wonderful views of mountains populated Mediterranean species, odors rockrose, a rosemary and thyme to indescribable sensations.

Why Maria Pia Sanchez Fernández chose Mérida

This property has been in my family for several generations. My father lived here all his life and left us the love of this land and what representa.Extremadura is a natural paradise, with the largest number of areas classified as high natural value. Especially La Dehesa, is a unique ecosystem in the world and can only be found in southwestern Spain, with Extremadura which has more surface Dehesa of Spain.

It is a Mediterranean forest that has been shaped over the centuries by the hand of man resulting in a unique landscape in which oaks with pastures fail of cattle in extensive mix, and scrub that provides refuge to diverse wildlife

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house has spectacular views from any corner. Sit and read by the fireplace, enjoy lso blue skies on which liming white walls of the farmhouse is cut, take a while in the garden planting tomatoes or onions while the nightingales sing tirelessly, play a game of ping pong or foosball with children and then eat together on the porch enjoying the fresh air.

Un fin de semana 10

  • 5 of 5

A pesar de que el tiempo no nos acompañara todo lo que quisimos, el fin de semana ha sido de 10. La casa es muy acogedora, no falta de nada, la cocina muy bien equipada, cada habitación con su baño todos reformados, el entorno precioso. La dueña muy agradable. Sin duda recomendaria esta estancia y sin duda volveremos en otra ocasión.

Casa muy bonita y muy equipada

  • 5 of 5

La casa es muy grande y muy bonita y está situada en el campo. Existe muy poca contaminacion luminica y se ven una gran cantidad de estrellas por la noche. Esta muy bien equipada y se llega facilmente con las instrucciones que da la propietaria. Por poner algun fallo, existe una habitacion con camas que es una habitacion de paso, si necesitas esas camas es algo incomodo, ya que se molesta a las personas que duermen ahi

Estancia muy agradable

  • 5 of 5

Hemos estado unos días un grupo de cuatro matrimonios con siete niños y ha sido una estancia muy agradable. La casa es muy amplia con cuartos de baños independientes para cada habitación y un salón grande y muy cómodo. Cocina bien equipada y también amplia. Hemos podido disfrutar de la piscina y del exterior ya que hizo temperatura para ello. Recomendable y apuntada para repetir.

Una experiencia distinta

  • 4 of 5

Al tratarse de un cortijo, la experiencia es totalmente distinta a la de una casa rural: una finca de gran extensión, campo, ganado...

La casa está muy cuidada. Dispones de varias habitaciones y casi un baño por habitación. Un gran salón para estar todos y un gran porche en el que guarecerse de la lluvia o del sol.

La única pega era que la depuradora de la piscina había fallado en el fin de semana y no estaba muy limpia.

Owner's Response: Gracias Aitor por tu amable comentario. Mala suerte con la depuradora. Se estropeo el clorador salino justo el dia que llegasteis. Aunque le echamos cloro manualmente no dio tiempo a que quedara tan cristalina como debería. Espero que de todos modos pasarais un buen fin de semana. Un cordial saludo
