The house located next to the town of Valdelarco, in the Sierra de Aracena, comes from the rehabilitation of a "Zarzo", old rustic building to dry chestnuts. The beekeeper "Nemesio", was his last owner.
Made with criteria of contemporary architecture is a combination between the rural and the urban: stone walls and ramparts of Arab heritage, with other rabidly current materials, such as steel and polished concrete floors. Inside full of open and bright spaces connected by light stairs.
The house, the corral converted into a patio with two almond trees planted and the pool are conceived for the contemplation of Valdelarco, declared Historic-Artistic and Cultural Interest.
The sobriety of the decoration is not an absence but an aesthetic choice. The guest can find a semi-excavated shower in the rock oozing water through it, a bauhaus-style kitchen, a wall made with marble remains from the nearby Navahermosa quarry, etc.
From the house located in the heart of the Natural Park of Aracena, there are trails of significant natural and scenic value.
Rehabilitation awarded with the Prize of the Architects Association of Andalusia. Huelva, year 2000.
Valdelarco has served as location for scenes of the film "Yerma", based on the work of García Lorca. It was directed by Pilar Távora.
