The Area

This is one of the truly special places in Spain which few visitors ever have the privilege of knowing with a magnificent natural environment and everyday sights of goatherds and their flocks wandering the mountainsides farmers harvesting by hand and carrying their produce in panniers on donkeys’ backs all reflecting a culture still rooted in an age long past.

Most of the area falls within the Gredos Regional Park covering some 213098 acres -a natural paradise. Majestic horned mountain goats abound and tawny vultures golden eagles brightly coloured woodpeckers and red kites are to be spotted in this bird watcher's paradise.

Walking- Self Guided

The walking is of an easy to moderate nature with a few challenges for the more adventurous. Some walks are available from the hotel whilst some are just a short drive away.

If you do not have your own car the hotel will gladly arrange transport for you, payable locally. On the northern side of the Gredos you will walk through a wild open sparsely populated expanse with sweeping views that will have you staring forever!

You will come across fresh mountain streams possibly still fed by the melting snows on the higher peaks and follow them down through flower-filled valleys.

On one day you can cross the Gredos via a Roman road, the only one we know of with hairpin bends as it winds down the mountainside. Here there are fragrant lemon trees, olive groves and vineyards reflecting the warmer south facing slopes. The contrast is most definite!

Visit some of the villages of this lovely valley along mule tracks, bridle paths and sections of an ancient Roman road. Yet you can still walk into the high mountains where the scenery is more jagged with spectacular waterfalls.
