About the property

La Lancha is a fairy tale farm located in Norhern Extremadura, in the province of la Vera (7 kilometres from Jarandilla de la Vera) where prestigious Spanish landscape architect Eduardo Mencos carried out the 18th century concept of “ornamental farm” that is to say a landscaped working farm with decorative features such as arbours, antique wells, water reservoirs, ruins… in complete harmony with the surrounding natural landscape. The idea is that everything should have a practical purpose but be beautiful. You can’t see a single wire or a water deposit (they are hidden under earth). We grove organic olives, raspberries and breed merino sheep which stroll around the property of 30 hectares which include meadows, a stream, vegetable garden, orchards and woodlands (strawberry trees and oaks). Of course we have free range hens to supply fresh eggs. Solar panels produce the electricity.

The house which is partly a converted old barn measures some 500 m2 and could be described as a “eco luxury farm house” decorated with lots of French antique pieces and works of art. It could sleep 16 people but around 12 persons would be the ideal. The house is rented with maid service included. The price includes cleaning and washing and if guests wish we offer breakfasts, cooking, baby sitting etc.

A wonderful stay and stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, remote and delightful property with excellent amenities. The quality of the accommodation is quite exceptional. The gardens are immaculate. The interior is sensitively and creatively designed. We had a wonderful time and very much hope to return. The nearby natural pools are incredible. Highly recommended.

Muy acogedora.... un lujo de sitio

  • 5 of 5

El plan perfecto para desconectar de todo en familia. Una finca preciosa y auténtica, con todo lo necesario para tres familias con niños que han disfrutado del campo, de la piscina, de la poza... Nos encantará volver. Muchas gracias.

Nuestra casa en el campo

  • 5 of 5

Hemos ido varias veces y cada una de ellas la hemos disfrutado más. Siempre con niños y amigos y ya es nuestra casa en el campo. El entorno es maravilloso, la casa está ampliamente equipada y preciosa y los niños disfrutan de los animales, del campo y de la casa con toda libertad. Volveremos en septiembre a disfrutar del final del verano, a desayunar huevos recién puestos por las gallinas, a pasear entre las ovejas y los cerdos y a ver a los patos ser pastoreados por Scott y Laika.

Un gran plan para ir en familia y disfrutar con los niños del campo.

Muy mala experiencia. Teníamos unas expectativas muy altas generadas por el anuncio. No es de lujo, No es una mansión. Es un establo restaurado con estilo, donde guardan mucho mueble viejo. Una de las habitaciones ofertadas es una buhardilla de díficil acceso por una escalera de caracol desde otra habitación sin más ventilación que un ventanuco de 20 cm. Las mosquiteras rotas, solo las arañas ayudan a que no haya más mosquitos. Le falta mucho mantenimiento ,limpieza e inversión y te cobran como si fuera el Palace. Al final el error es mio, porque en el fondo esto es alquiler no profesional. Pero pensamos que los precios irían en concordancia con el servicio. Craso error. Despues de esto, iré más a los Paradores...

Tranquilidad y naturaleza

  • 5 of 5

Si buscas tranquilidad, olvidar el asfalto y disfrutar de la naturaleza, no hay lugar mejor.

La casa está perfectamente equipada con todo lo necesario y situada en un entorno idílico. Muy recomendable con niños.

This is a place suited for a large family who’d like to relax explore Northern Extremadura (we are very close to Yuste, just an hour from Cáceres, 45 minutes from Trujillo, an hour from Guadalupe, 30 min from the Natural Park of Monfragüe (paradise for bird watching)etc. There are many beautiful walks some of them lead to natural pools. It could also be the perfect retreat for a writer or an artist.
