La Casa del Holandes, La Vera

You know you are in a small traditional village when the house belonging to a Dutchman is known to everyone as “La Casa del Holandés”. Here in Madrigal de la Vera, La Casa del Holandés is a tiny guesthouse with just three studio apartments. The house was built in 1850. The recent restoration has remained true to the nature of an old village house in a narrow village street, yet the interior has sympathetically introduced modern comforts and convenience.

The three studio apartments are each designed for two people, with the option of a cot for a baby, and is equipped with a television, wi-fi, air-conditioning and an en-suite bathroom with a hydro-massage shower. They even have a little kitchenette suitable for making tea and coffee or a light meal.

Just a ten or fifteen minute walk from the guesthouse brings you to a impressive chestnut woods or the Alardos Gorge with its picturesque stone bridge. The river here is a great spot for swimming and sun-bathing, just as if you were on the beach. Indeed it is a perfect spot for enjoying all that nature has to offer including swimming, walking, fishing, horse-riding and even studying and picking the spectacular variety of mushrooms that grow in the area.

Madrigal village lies at the foot of the looming Mansur mountain, a spectacular rocky peak that would not look out of place in the Alps, and which forms a striking backdrop at the end of the little streets and alleys of the village. Best of all though are the river gorges that drain the central plateau of Spain towards the Atlantic Ocean. Many are steep, deep and spectacularly enchanting, while others are softer and more mellow.

"But when you really want to eat something special, in a quiet environment, I recommend the restaurant of the charming owners, Nieves and Hans, located in, what used to be the cellar of the house, where they have coupled some excellent Dutch recipes with the local produce."

"Don't forget to try their restaurant."

"It is soooo relaxing, not just because of the beds, which are exceptional, but also for the the tranquility which is so quiet you can breathe it in."
