Top score on all fronts. Beautiful, extraordinarily picturesque - inside decoration and views all round, fun for all ages - lots of activity from walks, quads, horses, great food and top hosts. Homely whilst being away from the home and chores. Thoroughly relaxing. Great way to re-charge the batteries and de-stress.

I am a photographer from the United States. My wife and I took a photography trip to Madrid. While in Spain, we decided to go out to the country and stay at Finca La Ramallosa. We made the journey from Madrid out to the countryside. Ohh Wow!! The landscape is vast and beautiful. The sunset's were stunning and the night time was breathtaking. It is so dark at night, the stars are so bright!!! The Milky Way is easily visible. We loved the rustic cabins. It was like going back in time, BUT, it had all of the modern comforts of home. We had a wonderful time riding the quads and just enjoying the laid back atmosphere. Let's move on to the food. We are from Louisiana, so, I know what good food is. Well, Rebecca and Alfonso also know what good food is!! The food was delicious, gourmet, and fresh. Delicious!! I've never eaten so healthy before. One of my favorite parts of my stay was, just walking through the olive groves and listening to the sound of the wind blowing through the trees. It was Very Peaceful and relaxing. Thank you for the amazing service Rebecca and Alfonso. If we ever get to come back to Spain, we will be back. Thanks!!!!....Chris

Just a warning to potential clients. Despite having a confirmed booking for two nights when we arrived after a 4 hour drive and 20 very bumpy and dirty minutes down a dirt track (not mentioned on the website) we were told the Finca was closed!!! The 'supposed-owner' was full of apologies and did find us a hotel in a nearby village but be warned - this Finca may not really exist at all.

ramallosa, Dueño at Finca La Ramallosa, responded to this review, June 15, 2009
Dear potential clients, Finca La Ramallosa is open for business for over 5 years now. Myself and my wife take care of our guests personally since them. Always devoted to our clients, when we have a confirmed reservation (either email or phone call) we always call our clients before arrival just introduce ourselves personally, to be sure they know where we are located, to know their estimated time of arrival, so we can prepare a welcome lunch, dinner or snack and to solve any other doubt they may have.

Unfortunately, the author of this note, came over our hotel without a confirmed booking (weeks before arrival, we replied to their request within 4 hours, saying we were not able to offer availability that weekend), even though their travel agent confirmed availability to them by mistake.

We explained them that the travel agent made that mistake, we found them a room at a nice hotel within the nearest town and we offered them two free nights at La Ramallosa any other time just to compensate their trip over here.

Also, even though we have a detail indication on our website about how to get here, including the track (by the way, not recommended for sports cars like the one this clients came with), we always explain it personally when we talk to clients, so they do not get lost.

Regards,

Alfonso

Our previous review seems to be missing, so this one is a replacement.
La Ramallosa is a unique hideaway nestling on the border of Spain and Portugal in Extramadura, north of Caceres. If you are looking for something different this is for you and gives a feeling of real Spain!
All of the buildings are sympathetically restored using local stone and the original designs to produce stunning buildings of the highest standard. A swimming pool overlooks the fantastic olive groves and the home cooked local food is excellent, served in a converted barn also decorated to the highest standards.

Also available is horse-riding, quad biking, local products for sale including Ramallosa olive oil. Typical local villages and towns are nearby and just a short drive away.

Rebecca and Alfonso have made their job a way of life and are truly committed and enthusiastic about everything Extramduran, they are helpful, provide excellent food, facilities and advice.
