Rural house to enjoy in nature (surrounded by vegetation and trees typical of the area, trees classified as unique to Extremadura, noted for their biometric features, cherry, oak, birch, yew, alder, and two palm trees) , surrounded by this gift of nature and made by the hand of water, sun, earth and wind, is this simple but cozy cottage that retains its original stone walls, but plastered, thus ensuring the cool during the summer and conserving the heat in autumn and winter, with two constructions; one for the main house and another much smaller, for service of the main, the garden and being able to be outdoors.
The proximity of the house to the Balneario del Valle del Jerte, will allow our guests to contract for the use of health services by water, restaurant, terrace - garden or cafeteria of this complex, without the need to travel by car, with a simple walk through the woods or along the access road.
In high seasons of the throat channel (we speak of the months of March, April. May and June) we can give baths up to the waist in what we familiarly call the "natural pool of the house", in the small part of "the throat of the Bohonal" which is accessed, through a door, from the same garden home. Normally, this door is locked with a small padlock, to prevent the free access of the youngest of the family, but it will be possible to dispose of its key and its use, under the express request of the adults and under their responsibility.
We are working so that the house has, at least, six bicycles (to walk) to facilitate the trips through the forest and to be able to practice cycle tourism, all this will not be included in the price of the accommodation.
What attracted us the most was the hook that nature has, the silence and the integration of the house in the forest. Other attractions were:
The fact of accessing the house, directly (from the main road of the valley), the proximity to the town of Navaconcejo (town that, in its day, was Council), the proximity to the gorge "del Bohonal" and the same "river" Jerte ", which makes the area something very, very special. We were struck by the sensation that makes you enjoy, on clear nights, spectacular skies and from the very porch of the house to hear the best music in the world, which is that of nature. It is striking to get up in the morning and have the feeling of having slept a thousand hours, of having rested deeply, to savor the absence of noise caused by man, intoxicated by silence. We have verified that any radio cassette, however simple, in this place intensifies the sounds of the different instruments of the song that you are listening to and, all, for the absence of noise in the area.
What else can we say about this place? that has magic, and makes, any sunset of spring, summer or autumn, be a show in itself, a show of lights and paintings projected from the forest. To the west of the house, at sunset, you can see the sun's rays in its slow hiding through the trees between cracks and bouncing in the water of the gentle gorge ........... From our point of view, this is a great asset of the house that will make you feel good.
We were also very attracted to the possibilities of continuing to innovate and introducing new architectural and design details. The garden is a meadow-orchard, all the plants and trees or shrubs are always full of water; giant hydrangeas, don pedros or parakeets, higeras, quince, some cherry, pomegranate and a long etc, that you yourselves can check in the stay.
The trees of the margins of the throat that project on the house and the garden provide (even in summer) a temperature that suggests a jacket or sweatshirt, ..... a pleasureGet the full listing »
