ESTATE IN JARANDILLA DE LA VERA (Extremadura)
One of the most beautiful estates in Extremadura and in the midst of the Gredos mountains and surrounded by spectacular lakes, ravines, cliffs and the towering granite structures known as the Galayos. In this secluded retreat, we come across a magnificent private country house whose construction carefully balances local architecture with nature.
Far from the hustle and bustle of modern urban life, the Estate in Jarandilla de la Vera is one of the most breath-taking in all Extremadura. It lies at the heart of the beautiful and majestic Gredos mountains, which are renowned for their environmental importance.
The house sits among the lakes, rivers and mountains and is totally private and for the exclusive use of our guests. The feeling of peace and serenity floats in the air. The house is surrounded by oak and pine trees and is the perfect place to enjoy the peaceful calm of nature and beautiful scenic views of the Gredos mountains.
The house can give much added-value to any kind of corporate event. As well as a meting room, there are large and spacious lounges, and comfortable bedrooms to relax in after a day’s work. Also, when the good weather comes, it’s well worth taking a walk in the countryside, a swim in the pool, or sitting outside on a veranda to read a book.
Beyond it’s environmental worth, interesting places marked by history, art and tradition can be found in the Gredos area. Among these are the Roman Road called Puerto del Pico, Candeleda Village, and El Barco de Avila village – where you can try the large beans that made this village famous throughout Spain.
