Elegant country house with swimming pool and views of Sierra de Gredos
The living room gives access to a large covered terrace with several sitting areas, an outdoor dining table, a ping pong table and a table football.
The wooden house is more basic, and has a living-dining room with a wood stove and an open kitchen, 3 double bedrooms with 2 single beds and 2 bathrooms with shower.
Around the main house is a well-groomed garden with a lawn and a large swimming pool of 15 x 7 m. and lovely views of the Sierra de Gredos.
Close to the 2 houses is a football field with 2 goals and basketball baskets, as well as swings.
On the property is a horse stable with several horses that may move freely over the property, but never close to the houses. There are also some dogs living on the property, but that can't approach the house.
The house is at 180 km. south west from Madrid, and at 7 km. from Villanueva de la Vera, a picturesque village with a pretty and well preserved old center, shops, restaurants, terraces etc.
The region, called La Vera, has surprisingly lush nature due to its location on the southern slopes of the Sierra de Gredos, with a mild and relatively humid climate that brings dense vegetation and plenty of water, which descends from the mountain peaks in beautiful mountain rivers with idyllic and often quiet rock pools where it is a pleasure to have a swim.
There is a great variety of sights and activities in the area, including the Yuste Monastery where emperor Charles V spent the last years of his life, the Parador of Jarandilla de la Vera, and the towns of Trujillo and Cáceres with their conquistador palaces.
The area is also ideal for hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking on the Tietar river, and playing golf at the 18 hole golf course at Talayuela, etc.
A couple lives in a separate house in the property, and who look after the maintanance of the house, the swimming pool and the property. Guests can hire them for cleaning, meals, etc. at 10€/hour.
