Beyond our expectation, very impressive property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Calandria for 8 days and it was the best holiday our group had so far. We're a group of friends, 7 families all together & we usually organise a yearly holiday. Initially we planned to drive around some places in Castille Y Leon and make the villa our base but when we saw how the kids we're so contended on just staying in and playing by the pool we decided to spend most of our time there, 3 days on & my 14 yr. old even told me that she misses the villa.

We had a chance to mingle with the locals and it was such a great experience even though we don't speak Spanish except for some odd words and they don't speak English either but somehow we connected.

Virginia & Herman are great host they made sure that we had everything that we need, they usually stay on site if there's guests in the villa, any questions they're just a phone call away. They even organised a meat delivery from the local butcher on our 2nd day there.

Thank you Jorge for the quick response. We'll definately come back in the near future.

Fantastic House, with Fantastic Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Virginia and Jorge were so welcoming and accommodating to our large group of 27. The house had more than enough space and is set in some beautiful countryside. The pool is very refreshing, maybe a little too cold. The paddle tennis court was a big hit with lots of our group and we loved having big long lunches out on the lawn. Our only criticism is the lack of sun loungers, but all in all we had fantastic week and would recommend this to any large group looking for some Sun and relaxation.

Beautiful villa, perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Do not hesitate in booking this villa! We stayed here for a week at the beginning of September 2016, a group of 12 adults and a baby. We were warmly greeted by Virginia, who was always available and willing to help if we had any problems.

The villa and grounds were well kept and extremely clean. It was very spacious inside the house, even with 12 people. The bedrooms were generous in size, a couple of box rooms at the top of the stairs but brilliant for a mixed group of people/couples/singles or families.

The pool is a good size, a little cold but perfect when the sun was out!

It was great to have an outside area big enough that we could all eat together and sit in the evenings. The kitchen is well equipped, plenty of plates/cutlery/glasses for everyone (and more!)

The only negative is that it would be great to have more pool side loungers, as there is only space for four (lying down loungers). It didn't really affect us as we used the grass and other chairs but it would have been nice to all be able to lie by the pool at the same time!

We all had such a brilliant time, I wouldn't hesitate to book again.

A truely beautiful, magnificent family home.

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this home for a large group. We a party of 13 came from Australia and stayed 2 weeks in July 2013 for and International sporting event. The property was spotless and clean and there was ample space and the pool magnificent, the hosts Verginia and German were wonderful and helpful and we all would return again. The home is situated in a small valley and town a short drive to all ameneties and tourist attractions. We had this house as a base and travelled North to France and then south to Gibralter, just magnificent :) Karen

Away from it all

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house (we lived on the wide veranda), beautiful garden and loads to do around the house - everyone loved the paddle court and we all want one now!

Tranquil "edge of the village" setting allowed for very peaceful days by the pool. Fantastic climate, with cooler evenings for sleeping and lovely hot but not scorching days. Trips to Santo Domingo di Silos, Yecla and to Panefiel well worth it. Pick-your-own fruit (amazing cherries) and veg went down very well. Thank you Virginia and German.

Magnifique !

  • 5 of 5

Comment résumer nos merveilleuses vacances ? Nous étions cinq familles (10 adultes et 13 enfants), des voisins, habitant la même rue en France, et nous avons tous adoré cette vie en communauté (que nous redoutions un peu), grâce à une maison hyper spacieuse, avec des chambres d'adultes qui ressemblent à de petits appartements privés et de nombreuses terrasses et lieux paisibles qui permettent de s'isoler et de ne pas se marcher dessus. Le logement est d'un grand confort (excellente literie, couverts en nombre plus que suffisants) et elle est très bien entretenue. Seule la cabane , au confort succin, n’a pas convaincu les deux ados.

Très bon terrain de padel , une grande piscine, un trampoline et une slack-line pour les plus adroits ! Les enfants ont adoré l'immense jardin, propice aux jeux de cache-cache et découverte de la nature.

La maison domine le paisible village de Ciruelos de Cervera, l'un des plus jolis de la comarca. Ciruelos est un village endormi mais il offre une aire de sport (terrain de basketball, et une salle de hand ball + fronton couverts, le tout gratuit et accessible à toute heure).Il est le point de départ de randonnées à pied ou vtt dans une région dépaysante et pleine de charme. Côté pratique, Il faut faire une vingtaine de minutes pour arriver à Aranda de Dueros et ses commerces (Mercadona, Al Campo -Auchan), mais ce ne fut pas une corvée tant le paysage nous a plu lors de ces sorties.

Un médecin et une infirmière viennent deux fois par semaine au dispensaire du village, ce qui est très pratique, sinon, il y a un très bon centre de Salud avec de bons médecins et pédiatres, à 25 minutes en voiture, dans la très belle ville de Lerma .

Côté visites : Covarrubias, autre petite ville qui vaut le détour. Santo Domingo de Los Silos et son monastère. la valleé des vautours de Yecla, et à une heure de route, le superbe canyon de Rio Lobos. Pour les plus sportifs, le circuit de vitesse à 15 minutes qui permet de louer des kartings pour des sessions de 15 minutes (à 10 euros), peut faire des heureux !

Côté temps, grand et beau soleil, il fait chaud mais ce n’est jamais insupportable, et le soir, un léger vent frais rend les nuits agréables. Et quel ciel étoilé ! Magnifique !

Magnifique, c’est finalement le mot qui peut résumer au mieux nos vacances. Un grand merci aux propriétaires, Viriginia et Jorge pour leur discrétion, leur disponibilité et leur amabilité.
