Our family stayed here for 6 nights in early April. It was my third visit, and as enjoyable as the previous two. The Casa is in a lovely part of Spain, very unspoilt with pleasant peaceful countryside and fantastic wildlife. The Easter celebrations in nearby Trujillo and in the village added significantly to an interesting vacation. The owners are friendly... More

Martin & Claudia are the perfect hosts, providing great breakfasts, dinner options and packed lunches if required, all essential for a day packed with bird watching. The house is set in gorgeous gardens, stuffed with birds and plants. The village bar just down the road is also a plus for a cheap drink or basic meal amongst the very friendly... More

We stayed at El Recuerdo for 3 nights and were accomodated in a guestroom adjacent to the main building. The room was large, well equipped and clean. Dinner arrangements were easy to make and the food was simple yet very tasty. Perfect after long days in the field. Martin has extensive knowledge of the wildlife in the area and is... More

We did not stay at the casa, but we did arrange a private birding tour with Martin, who is very knowledgeable. He picked us up at the Trujillo parador right on time and took us on a 3-hour trek to multiple spots for an excellent overview of the birds in the Extremadura plains. We had outstanding sightings of great bustards,... More

Thank you Claire and Ed for the review and a big thank you too for giving me the opportunity of showing you the tip of the iceberg of birding in Extremadura. We had a truly memorable morning and I do hope that we have the chance to meet again. More

5 of us stayed at El Recuerdo for 6 nights on a bird watching holiday, guided by our expert host Martin. It was a truly wonderful experience, thanks to Martin's amazing knowledge of the birds, their songs and calls and the places they hang out! If Martin stopped the vehicle and said "we might just see a Montague's Harrier here",... More

Five days out with Martin 112 species seen. We had some fairly cold weather but the birds didn't seem to mind. Some great backdrops to the water we visited with snow on the distant mountains. Good food, good wine and good company. Warm and comfortable accomadation.All you could wish for. A great recommend.

We went for the birding, but the rest of the experience did not disappoint. It's hard to believe, but El Recuerdo is even more charming than it looks in the photos. November is a beautiful time in Exremadura, the countryside green and refreshed from fall rains combined with brilliant autumn foliage makes for picture postcard views in all directions. Our...

November might not be your first thought if booking a holiday in Extremedura, but if you can cope with less heat, you might be rewarded with a verdant landscape full of resident, migrant and wintering wildlife. When I visited less than two weeks ago the tree colours in the mountains were glorious and the towns pleasantly quiet. I stayed with... More

We stayed for four nights on our recent holiday. Claudia and Martin couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and the setting is rural and peaceful. Use of their pool was a positive bonus. It is in a great location for visiting other places like the Monfrugue Park, Merida, Guadaloupe, Caceres and, of course, Trujillo.... More
