Our house is in the heart of rural Spain, 3kms from the village of Guisando on the southern slopes of the Gredos mountains. The house, which is in the protected environment of the Sierra de Gredos Regional Park, was built in 2010 on the site of an old farm. The house is on two floors. The ground floor has a large open plan living area, with well-equipped kitchen, dining room table to seat 12/14, and living area with comfortable sofas and a wood-burning stove. There is also a cloakroom. From the living room, French windows open onto a covered balcony with table and chairs. From the balcony you can see up to 50 miles away towards Toledo and the valley of the River Tagus. The ground floor also has four bedrooms and two bathrooms linked to the living area by a covered verandah. Each pair of bedrooms, one with double bed and one with twin beds, share a bathroom, making the property ideal for families sharing. On the lower ground floor, there are two additional bedrooms, one with double bed, child bed and en suite bathroom and the other with two single beds and adjacent bathroom. All the bedrooms open onto the secluded walled garden and sun terrace. The garden is gated and is therefore very safe for small children.
The property is set in 15 acres of orchards and pine woods. The fruit trees, mainly cherries, but also apples, pears, peaches and figs produce abundant fruit which guests are welcome to pick. Our manager, Juan, will bring you eggs from our chickens and seasonal vegetables from the garden.
The 10m X 5m pool, which is securely fenced,is about 30m from the house, and is visible from the balcony. The pool is not heated but has a cover and the average summer temperature of the water is about 24 degrees.
