the lodge run by Martin and Claudia is a home away from home. Excellent rooms and great hosts. Martin is an natural history guide par excellence. His knowledge of the area and its avi fauna is incredible. Claudia serves up the nicest dinners in the lodge (on request). I believe Extremadura to be the finest birding destinations in Europe and...

This place is excellent. Best accommodation for Birders. Beautiful surroundings packed with birds. Hoopoe in the Garden. Martin Kelsey can help you find the more difficult birds. Without his advice, we would not have found Black Wheatear and Black-shouldered Kite. Claudia and Martin are extremely friendly hosts. Delicious home cooked food. Next stay in April 2016 is already booked.

We spent a wonderful few days here in the springtime & with Martin's detailed advice we set out on our own into the magical countryside & each day saw a variety of birds I had only dreamt of finding.We returned back each evening to one of Claudia's tasty & copious meals with local wine included.A perfect holiday.

We stayed for three nights in June and ate at El Recuerdo twice. We highly recommend the property, which is interesting in itself and really beautiful. Our food was delicious and home cooked from local produce, at very reasonable cost, that included local wine. The owners are so welcoming and helpful and we are looking forward to returning soon.

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.

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
