We were surprised by the spacious, well equiped and clean Casa Babel. Add the central location to many birding sites in and around Monfragüe NP and nice cities as Trujillo and Caceres and you understand our high ranking of this casa rural. José, the owner, is very well informed and showed us many interesting areas. We certainly recommend this place for birdwatchers and other nature lovers.

Hola Ben, thank you very much for your opinion.

Monfrague National Park and Extremadura are probably the best place in Europe to see raptors, vulture and many more bird species.

From Casa Babel we try to help our clients in all they need to enjoy your holidays, giving them birdwatchers expert advice as well as guiding tours.

I hope all is ok in Netherland,

Best regards for you and Paulijn,

JOSE

Casa Babel is a nice place to stay and ideally situated for birders who want to fully explore Monfrague National Park, the Arrocampo Biosphere Reserve and the plains between Cáceres and Trujillo. My brother and I had a good and clean room upstairs. The buffet style breakfast was simple, but adequate, and offered the opportunity to start at any time. The place offers facilities for cooking and has a fridge to store stuff in. The living room is nicely laid out with 2 couches, 2 comfortable chairs and 1 coffee table. Torrejon itself is only a small community and therefore does not offer a great variety of restaurants. The owner, José , is easy and friendly to communicate with in English and readily shares his extensive knowledge of the wildlife with the guests. Highly recommended to nature lovers, who are looking for simple and clean accommodation including breakfast and want to be close to Monfrague National Park and within easy driving range to (the plains between) Cáceres and Trujillo.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are quieter than room downstairs, where people enter through the front door, have bre...

Gracias Willem-Jan for your opinion,

Torrejon el Rubio is as you say the best place for birdwatching in Extremadura, Monfrague National Park, Arrocampo reservoir and Caceres, Santa Marta and Trujillo plains are less than 40 minutes for our accommodation.

I hope see you soon and share good moments,

Regards for the Netherland,

JOSE

Casa Babel is a very nice place to stay, value for money. The bed was good, the room clean. Breakfast was simple but adequate. As you can use the kitchen and fridge you can buy some extras yourself. We even cooked a simple meal one night. José, the owner, is very friendly and has great knowledge of the surroundings. He can give loads of tips of where to spot certain birds. The first morning of our stay we went on a tour with him. He showed us the main sights and birdspotting places in the Parque Monfragüe and took us on a small detour to spot bee-eaters outside the park. The village Torrejon is nothing special, but the walk to the bridge over the river outside the village is definitely worth the effort. We saw lots of birds on the way and kingfishers and a snake-eagle at the bridge. If we ever go back to Monfrague, we'll stay at Casa Babel again.

We found Casa Babel on internet, the contact with the owner Jose was very pleasant. The accommodation was excellent. We loved the big beds and large couches. Perfect to relax after a day of walking and birdwatching. It is only a short drive to the national park Monfrague. I have already recommended it to all of my friends who like bird watching. Hopefully we will come back to this location during the next spring to experience the wildlife and nature again.

We chose Casa babel as a base to explore extremadura based on some research via the internet, this can be a risky thing, but we were not to be disappointed, it was a lads birding trip for 5 nights and as it turned out, to explore extremadura the position of casa babel could not have been better, Jose was waiting for us on arrival to give us some of his helpful knowledge, the rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfasts more than adequate.
