About María Prat

We came to Extremadura from a big city long time ago, looking for direct contact with nature and a different way of life.

Since that time we want to share with all nature lovers this treasure, still very unknown but very well appreciated by nature photographers, walkers and birdwatchers.

Why María Prat chose Villuercas- Ibores - Jara

Our location is unique, in the top of a hill the views are stunning. Surrounded by very diverse landscape, in the heart of Villuercas Geopark.

Suiteble for monumental tourism, between Guadalupe and Trujillo. For birwatching, between Monfragüe, the big reservoirs and close to the crane´s population. For nature lovers, very pure area, with very low population. Many paths to explore, through different landscapes, reaching vestiges or cave paintings.

What makes this cottage unique

The location, the birds variaty, the nature and the personal attention. We´ll share with you our knowledge of the area to get a perfect stay according to your interest and hobbies.

Beautiful view and very nice owners!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a 4 person cottage and had a fantastic view on the village Berzocana and it's surroundings. The cottage was very comfortable and contained all the things you need to cook and relax. The owners are very friendly, helpful and talk English very well (nice for us as Dutch people). They are truly enthusiastic about the area and can tell you about all the nice views and walks in the direct surroundings of their property. The place is a perfect start for bird watching, botanists and people who like to walk in a highly varied landscape. We enjoyed every minute and would highly recommend it!

A wonderful week in one of the most superb places in Western Europe

  • 5 of 5

We had been looking forward to our stay in Extremadura, a little-visited region in the southwest of Spain but our experience there surpassed our expectations. In this large, sparsely populated area of contrasting topography (mountains, steppes, river plains and the dehesa, a unique agricultural landscape where man has, for once, partnered successfully with nature) you can see rare birds and a sea of wildflowers, as well as ancient forests of oaks. It is a glimpse of a Mediterranean landscape that has almost disappeared. The towns are beautiful, with superb Roman ruins in Merida and Renaissance architecture in Caceres. There are few tourists, empty roads and great food. If you want all-day breakfasts and to lie on a beach surrounded by sunburnt Brits, this is not the place for you. If you like peace, beauty and friendly hosts, then Cielo Abierto will give you great pleasure. We can't wait to go back. It is a long drive from the ferry at Santander but on largely traffic-free Spanish motorways it can easily be done in a day. Many thanks to Maria and Maximo (and their adorable Labrador puppy) for making us so welcome and comfortable.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great place for walking, birdwatching, sightseeing or only relaxing and enjoying the nice view over the village and good spanish wine and food. Maria, the owner, is very nice and helpfull, asking for your wishes, she has information for everyone and is very fond of her region, the Villuercas. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed longer. Strong recommendation!

Delightful, comfortable chalet in lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in a two bedroom chalet at Cielo Abierto which was not long enough and we hope to return. We have booked self-catering accommodation on many occasions in Extremadura and Castilla y Leon and this is the best so far. The chalet was on a hillside overlooking the pretty village of Berzocana and was well furnished, comfortable and emaculate. The south facing terrace was the perfect place for eating meals or relaxing, with complete quiet except for the songbirds. In the evening, the log-burning stove is easy to use and efficient, with an ample supply of logs. Maria, who speaks excellent english and lives nearby, was ever helpful and a fund of knowledge about local places to visit. We enjoy walking but after visits to Trujillo and Guadalupe only had time for the delightful walk into the village, to visit the market and the queseria which makes several types of goat cheese. The bird watching routes look as if they are the ideal way to explore the area and we are reading the literature given to us by Maria in anticipation of a longer stay.
