Our intention is that customers feel comfortable here and find peace, comfort and rest while enjoying the exceptional beauty of Gredos and the many activities that can be practiced.
Now I will tell you something about how great the house that I hope will be of interest and use. It is a new building but old techniques and local materials were used: thick stone walls, pine and chestnut, gateway to two waters, mud floor, Moorish tiles, etc.
For interior decoration look that was rustic but with a modern twist
mostly it was comfortable and cozy. Therefore, each room has its own bathroom and TV. It also has central heating, fireplace (wood stove), comfortable sofas, television in the living room and every bedroom. The kitchen is equipped with sufficient utensils and appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, blender, juicer, etc.).
Some trivia: the tables rooms are replicas, made by my father, former "tajuelas" used to wash in the river. The curtains in the cupboards were also common in the rooms and alcoves before, and light cords mimic the old. Notable chestnut beamed ceilings and open design of the room.

• En las casas no habrá una ocupación mayor que la se notifique al realizar la reserva.
La casa del altozano es una vivienda pareada con otra casa, con entrada independiente, en la que los propietarios residen temporalmente. No es una casa aislada ni en medio del campo, sino en el pueblo y con vecinos, por lo que no es recomendable si se busca un lugar donde hacer una fiesta o similar.
