This Andalusian-style cortijo, set on a large private property of olive groves on rolling hills at an hour and a half from Madrid, is composed of 3 independent houses that can sleep 18 people. Casa Marrón on its ground floor has a large living-dining room with a woodstove, a dining table for 18, and an open kitchen, and a bedroom and bathroom. On the first floor are another 3 double bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and a small sitting room. Casa Azul has a living-dining room with an open kitchen, 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, all on the ground floor. Casa Verde has its entrance at the top of a flight of stairs, and has a living-dining room with open kitchen, 2 double bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Around and between the houses are several picturesque patios, with garden furniture, a barbecue and a playground. On the edge of the cortijo confines, with impressive views of the olive groves and the different mountain chains on the horizon, are a 25 m. long swimming-pool with a separate children's pool, a basketball court and a soccer field.
The area is ideal for long biking tours, and several bikes are available for our guests. Breakfast and other meals can be served upon request by the caretakers of the property.
The cortijo is at 3 km. from the village of La Calzada de Oropesa, where basic supplies can be found. Larger shops, restaurants etc. can be found at nearby Oropesa de Toledo and Navalmoral de la Mata, just across the border with Extremadura.
The surrounding landscape is very varried and attracts many bird species, with the endless Extremadura plains with olive groves and the typical holm oaks set against several mountain chains, from the Montes de Toledo and the Sierra de Guadalupe on the south to the Sierra de Gredos in the north. It is an ideal area for long biking or horseback riding tours. At about 5 km. is the beautiful lake Valdecañas in the Tage river, and the Isla de Valdecañas golf resort, with a beautiful 18 hole golf course and many other sports activities offered.
The cortijo is also well situated for exploring the cultural wealth of the region, such as the monumental towns of Oropesa with its Parador-Castle, Trujillo with its conquistar palaces, the Guadalajara monastery, The city of Cáceres, declared World Heritage site by the UNESCO, and the Yuste Monastery, where Emperor Charles V spent his last years. There are also several areas of great nature interest, such as the Monfragüe National Park and the Sierra de Gredos.
