Finca al-manzil is in the magical Sierra de Montanchez, Extremadura, a wonderful part of Spain with plenty to see and do. This is a unique property full of character. A perfect summer holiday, spring break or winter retreat for families, friends or couples. The CORTIJO, original farmhouse, is for 2 -6 people. It is in its own walled grounds with total privacy. There are lovely views from the houses, over the olive groves or up to the spectacular peaks of the sierra. Decorated with great care, a mixture of simple, good quality design with antique and ethnic furnishing, plenty of books for a good read on the patios and terraces. Bedrooms all en-suite, one with roof terrace, perfect for sunny breakfasts or star gazing. The swimming pool is situated in a natural curve of the mountains, surrounded by trees and shrubs, it has a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere with stunning views of mountains and olive groves.
Walk directly into the Sierra on ancient Moorish paths, nature is a delight at any season especially Bird Watching with many rare species on the finca including an eagle owl. The walk to our local village of Montanchez takes 40 mins on a delightful path through the natural scenery of the sierra.
There is also a great 3 hour walk up the watermill gorge, over the mountain and into Montanchez. There are 4 World Heritage towns within 40kms: Caceres, Trujillo, Guadalupe and Merida, fascinating to explore, great night life and shopping. Horse riding, biking, and hiking from the finca. Welcome to join in the local farming activities & fiestas or a fun cooking morning.
