This beautifully restored medieval house is all for you, no matter if you are a group of 2 or 6. Located in the old quarter, by the impressive castle walls of this real Spanish town, steeped in history and offering huge views.
A perfect hideaway...
The house sleeps maximum 6 people (2 double bedrooms and 2 single sofa beds)
There is one ground floor bathroom and the kitchen is fully furnished with gas oven, hob and fridge. A kitchen table seats 4-6 but there is also a patio table which seats 8-10 people comfortably.
In summer months, the upstairs bedroom has air-conditioning, the rest of the house stays cool due to foot-thick stone walls and the fact that the house is built into the hillside. In winter there is a log-fired stove, electric radiators, bathroom radiator and all the beds have electric blankets.
The house is in the old quarter, only metres away from the impressive castle walls of Alburquerque, a true Spanish town in the province of Badajoz, steeped in history and offering huge views. This is the place to visit if you love traditional town and country life, castles, festivals or just chilling out.
Discover abundant wildlife and lose yourself wandering along ancient tracks. Take in historic monuments and enjoy great food at many local traditional establishments both in Spain and across the border in the gorgeous Alentejo region of Portugal, less than 30 km away. If you're interested in ornithology, walking/ cycling, history, gastronomy and real Spain, come to Alburquerque!
There is an open air swimming pool in the town and a natural river pool in the nearby village of La Codosera.
The town can all be accessed on foot but you will need a car or bicycle to access sights out of the town like the natural swimming pool in La Codosera, the reservoir, world heritage sites of Marvao and Elvas. Good bus service to Badajoz.
Please note that the house, being centuries old, is built on several levels, has some low doorways and a very steep, narrow staircase. This may be an issue for people with limited mobility and is definitely not suitable for wheelchair users or young children.
Beschreibung war sehr passend und trotzdem wirkt die Atmosphäre erst dann, wenn man dort ist ;-) Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen, Martin ist ein wunderbarer Gastgeber. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Es ist genau die richtige Ausgangslage um das Städtchen mit all seinen Sehenswürdigkeiten und Kneipen fußläufig zu erkunden, aber auch, um mit dem Auto einige Höhepunkte der Extremadura kennenzulernen. Für alle reichte leider die Zeit nicht.
Sehr erwähnenswert ist aus unserer Sicht noch die gute Ausstattung mit Info-Material, besonders den Wanderrouten für den nordöstlichen Teil.
Wir können gern weiterempfehlen!
