We had a totally blissful weekend here in September, and were amazed at how quiet and peaceful it was! Our double room was fantastic, everything was very clean and modern, and the bed was very comfortable. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the sun by the pool, and as there are only a handful of rooms, we largely... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights with a group of friends and we found it a wonderful place to relax and start exploring the area, including the National Park Los Cabaneros which is about 35 mins by car away. The rooms all overlook a valley where at this time of the year (mid-May) everything was green and in... More

We loved this place & recommend it if you want a stylish but ecofriendly retreat on the edge of the beautiful Cabaneros National Park little over an hour from Toledo. Susana and Alvaro are great hosts with home cooking and after dinner astronomy demonstrations are just two of their talents.

We've been to many places in rural Spain, but there are very very few where you can enjoy real peace. There's always a road not far away, a farm next door or, more usually, neighbours' dogs who wake you several times during the night, even though the hotel looked quite isolated on Google Earth! Here it was different. Genuine peace.... More

My husband and I stayed here two nights in September. It was a beautiful place to relax and enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of our busy trip. Where else can you stop speaking and hear only the sound of bugs and animals - there was almost no human ambient sound whatsoever - talk about... More
