Guestbook comments from the owner
My Husband and our 14 year old daughter and her 16 year old friend and I just returned from a blissful week at Casa Salto Del Caballo. We stayed in the Portugal apartment which was fully equipped with all the comforts of home. The kitchen is lovely and new and the bedrooms and bathrooms are fully appointed and more than comfortable. Eva, our host, is absolutely lovely and we took full advantage of her knowledge of the area to enhance our stay. The area itself is perfect, quiet, serene with pleasant people in the village of La Fontanera. We would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone. The pool was welcome refreshment and a relaxing escape at the end of a long day of sightseeing all the beauty this area of Spain/Portugal has to offer and the patio and barbeques are a great place to spend your evening. Thank you so very much Eva, Nigel and Leon for all your hospitality. We hope to see you very soon.

La raya hispano-lusitana

  • 5 of 5
Fuero 7 días maravillosos en una casa muy acogedora. Eva fue una anfitriona perfecta, muy hospitalaria y amigable. La situación de Salto de Caballo casi en tierra de nadie y la similitud entre los pueblos de la zona a ambos lados de la raya hispano-lusitana demuestra lo etéreo de las fronteras.
Volvería a pasar unos días otra vez, sin duda.

Días tranquilos con niños

  • 4 of 5
Hemos estado en la casa la última semana de julio. Buscábamos un sitio tranquilo para ir con los niños y hemos acertado. La casa es amplia, tranquila, y la piscina necesaria para aliviar los calores, aunque en el entorno hay también otras posibilidades de baño. Eva es genial y el precio es ajustado. Además hemos podido conocer otras zonas de Portugal más alejadas en un día de excursión. Muy recomendable.
