Montanchez, Province of Caceres, Extremadura
The cortijo of Finca al-manzil is in the magical Sierra de Montanchez, Extremadura, a wonderful part of Spain with plenty to see and do. This is a unique property full of character, please see reviews.
A perfect summer holiday, spring break or winter retreat for families, friends or couples. There are lovely views over the olive groves or up to the spectacular peaks of the sierra. Decorated with great care, a mixture of simple, good quality design with antique and ethnic furnishing, plenty of books for a good read on the patios and terraces. Bedrooms all en-suite, one with roof terrace, perfect for sunny breakfasts or star gazing. The swimming pool is situated in a natural curve of the mountains, surrounded by trees and shrubs, it has a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere with stunning views of mountains and olive groves.

The pool was divine and we spent most afternoons there, evenings under the stars dining outside on the great dining terrace. Kitchen was full of lovely dishes and kitchen ware... more

July is much too hot to stay here, and that mistake was entirely ours! The location, setting and tranquility of the large and grand Cortjio property are all amazing! Sadly, however, we did not feel welcome. The continual emphasis on the necessity to use power frugally really impinged on our enjoyment of what was an expensive venue and was mutually... more

Management response:

I have only just noticed this review and feel it very necessary to respond. The family of 3 who stayed at the cortijo in July 2014 left some very flattering remarks in my guest book so this review is even more mysterious. They seemed perfectly happy and did not say a negative word about the cortijo or the finca. By... more

We all loved Finca al-manzil, even better than the photos. Not an average holiday house, full of personality, comfortable and felt like home with lots of books and dvds for entertainment. The pool is wonderful with great views and a little terrace above for just 2 people. We loved the Saturday market in Montanchez and exploring the nearby historical towns....
