About the property

For 6 people, 4 bathrooms, living room, fireplace, barbecue, garden, terrace, views

The House of the Hill is located in the Regional Park of Gredos in Barajas, Navarredonda de Gredos (Ávila), 4 km of access to the platform Gredos, 62 km from Avila and a mile from the Parador de Gredos.

It has three double rooms with private bathroom and TV in each, central heating, fireplace (stove), porch, spacious living room and great views.

It sleeps 6 persons but on the orange room you can put an extra bed for two people. There is a sofa that converts into a comfortable bed of 1.50, with latex mattress.

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.
