The house was built in 2005 following the traditional way, the outside walls are made of local stone. We restore the artesian well (19 Century) which is placed in the entrance and gives the name to the house El Brocal, that means well curb. We use its water to take care of the garden just in front of the house. We cultivate our own vegetables.
The house is confortable and has plenty of natural light. Some of the furnitures are antiquities and have been restored. From the rooms you could see wonderfull views of the countryside and the Sierra de la Demanda mountains.
Our village, Fresno de Rodilla, is a very very quiet place. We are only 30 inhabitants and the local road ends in the village so we don´t have traffic also. Although we have good road communications, only 2km to the N-I national road, only 15 min to Burgos city. A lot of rural roads and paths connect us to other little villages, this is very interesting if you like hiking or go by bike, only 5 km to atapuerca village an the Camino de Santiago.
We rent bikes.
Very close to Fresno de rodilla you could find: several natural springs, roman roads remains, woods, different kinds of mushrooms, golf, horse riding, burgos cathedral...
We are a young couple and we also live in the house in a separate room/bathroom/living room. The atmosphere at home is very familiar. We know very well our area so we are able to recomend you activities or visits, our goal is you enjoy your stay as much as possible: culture, sports, quiet time, etc. We book the Yacimientos de Atapuerca visit if you ask for.
As this is a 4 rooms house, the restaurant service is limited and need to be asked for in advanced. We cook traditional meals. We sell honey.
Smoking is not allowed. Pets are not allowed, our kitty doesn´t like to share any love. We´re sorry about that. It is no possible to pay by card. We speak English.
