Welcome to Sierra de Mampar Rural Cottage, in the Sierra Grande de Hornachos; we are in a place of exceptional scenic beauty and great natural wealth. Located in the center of the province of Badajoz, the Sierra Grande de Hornachos, stands on the border between the regions of Tierra de Barros, La Serena and La Campiña Sur.
The Rural House Sierra de Mampar is a classic Extremaduran farmhouse of colonial style - its origins go back to the XVIII Century - in which the essence of the old has been integrated with the comforts of the modern. Located in the heart of nature, the Rural House Sierra del Mampar, becomes an exceptional natural viewpoint from where the characteristic landscapes of the lower Extremadura are contemplated.
The farmhouse has a cobblestoned patio, with a rectangular floor, whose walls are decorated with all kinds of tools used in the agricultural and livestock work of the past. Through this central patio you can access the different rooms of the house: 4 double rooms equipped with large full bathrooms - two of them with double beds and the other two with separate beds -; a large dining room that, due to its size, presents different environments; another restaurant area with capacity for 20 people in which we can enjoy the traditional cuisine of the area, but also share pleasant gatherings around a large fireplace surrounded by comfortable sofas, game table and bar bar. And all without ever losing sight of the beautiful landscapes of a rugged mountain range that gets full through the windows. The rural house has a spacious kitchen equipped with all the necessary elements to make its use more comfortable.
All the facilities inside the farmhouse are complemented by basic services to make a more pleasant stay: central heating, air conditioning, water of great quality from the source and spring that gives name to the place where we are- "the source of the Mampar-.
