Finca Clarito is situated within an extremely tranquil rural setting where the only sound you will hear is birdsong! Surrounded by fig & olive trees with its own small vineyard, why not help harvest the figs in August or the grapes in September? The house has stunning views over the unspoilt countryside, towards Alcuescar and Montanchez.
The house is four years old and furnished in a rustic style in keeping with the area. The house sleeps 4/5 & has a twin bedded room with extra bed, en-suite wet room, 1 Double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, open plan living & dining area leading to a large terrace, & well equipped kitchen.
We have chosen not to create a pool at Finca Clarito. We swim in the excellent large public swimming pool in Montanchez (approx 10 mins). The pool incorporates a toddlers pool and a shaded bar for drinks and snacks. Open June to September. A large swimming lake Embalse De Prosepina, with outside bars, is situated on the way to Merida (approx 25 mins).
Above the Finca is the small hilltop village of Montanchez, famous for its Ham's. Wander around the castle started by the Roman's, occupied by the Goths and the Muslims until the Christian conquest. Walk the Ancient Caminos of the Sierra Montanchez with 3 marked routes.
There is a festival in Montanchez in August with performances of music and dance in the castle ruins. The ancient Chiviri on Easter Sunday, held in the beautiful Plaza Mayor in Trujillo, is not to be missed. The hauntingly beautiful festival of Virgin Victoria is well worth a visit, if only to watch the dazzling display of fireworks behind the medieval castle of Trujillo.
The Montanchez area is ideal for birdwatchers, with Eagles, Buzzards, Bee eaters to name but a few. A trip to Monfrague National Park allows for an amazing variety of these spectacular birds of prey. Walking in the mountains along the old Caminos.
Montanchez is located in the centre of a triangle formed by Caceres, a beautiful medieval town and world heritage sight, Merida with its spectacular Roman ruins and the medieval village of Trujillo, with its spectacular castle and ancient palaces. Extremadura is the region where many of the Spanish Conquistadors called home. One of the most famous, Francisco Pizarro, was born in Trujillo and his mounted statue resides in the Plaza Mayor in Trujillo, within striking distance of the palace designed and built by Pizarro's family following his death. A similar statue is also located in Lima, Peru where Pizarro spent much of his life.
