A little piece of heaven

  • 5 de 5

If you want to stay in rural Spain away from the costas stay in Extremadura, if you stay in Extremadura, stay at Finca al-manzil. We stayed for 1 week during the summer and we had such a great time not only at the finca where everything was bliss but exploring the 3 world heritage towns nearby, eating at super restaurants. From the finca you can hike into the beautiful mountains, hire horses and bikes. We were made to feel very welcome in the cortijo which felt like home, very warm and lovely atmosphere. Not to mention the great pool secluded in a beautiful part of the grounds. The descriptions and photos are tempting but don't come near the real thing.

A place of tranquility and romance!

  • 5 de 5

A great base for walking in mountain scenery on ancient paths and of course bird watching in the ideal natural conditions around the finca. Wonderous sightings of birds including a family of eagle owls! The house is very special, full of character, a real home with great books and dvds. Lovely outside spaces as well, especially the pool area, a little paradise. We loved it all and will be back as soon as we can.

The Cortijo at Finca al-manzil, happy memories!

  • 5 de 5

One of the best holidays we have had for a long time. The cortijo is so special, we chose it because it looked so charming in a beautiful landscape but it was so much more than we expected, the views, the tranquility, the wonderful atmosphere of the house. We could hardly drag ourselves away from the cortijo and pool but did go on some memorable trips to the stunning historical towns and the national park of Monfrague to see the griffon vultures in the wild.

The local markets and restaurants were great, fantastic value for money. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor restaurant in an olive grove near Montanchez.

Pippa and Manfred gave us some good tips and we enjoyed the bike rides and horse rides arranged by Manfred, star horse was "Fatboy". Star walk was straight from the finca to Arroyomolinos and up the watermill gorge to Montanchez, spectacular! We loved it all and are plotting a return visit, maybe in the spring when the bird life and wild flowers are at their peak.

Most relaxing holiday ever

  • 5 de 5

The Cortijo farmhouse is a wonderful place to stay. The accommodation is excellent, the situation glorious and the views magnificent. We had the most relaxing holiday ever. We had planned birdwatching trips but they all came to us as we lounged and read around the pool! Eagles, vultures, bee-eaters, golden oriole to name a few. Azure-winged magpies everywhere. One evening flying ants (I think!) rose in the most amazing thick clouds all together across the entire countryside. The walk to Montanchez is delightful. There are spectacular Roman remains - almost complete amphitheatre and theatre - at Merida. Trujillo and Caceres are also fascinating to visit. I can't recommend this lovely farmhouse and its environs highly enough.

Lovely place but some reservations

  • 3 de 5

Finca al Manzil is a charming house in a lovely setting near the delightful village of Montanchez. We (2 adults & 4 children) spent a very enjoyable week here. The house itself is well maintained and clearly loved by its owner. The pool is small (as advertised) and did not occupy our children for long; the water was also not quite clear on our arrival and this was a little off-putting. The pool is shared with the occupants of the barn, in this case a very nice couple from Lisbon & their two dogs. Kitchen and dining areas inside & out are very pleasant. There's a simple gas BBQ - charcoal (according to the owner) not permitted due to bush-fire risk. Three bedrooms all nice but two are open to the grounds via the veranda so not suitable for unaccompanied young children from a security point of view.

A couple of negatives unfortunately:

1. We knew the house did not have air-con but there were no fans at all in the house which made the nights most unpleasant and almost sleepless. The owner suggested that their solar power supply might not cope with fans running at night but we felt this was unlikely. We understand from the owner that fans have since been added.

2. For a house in this budget range we felt the shower fittings were too basic - shower heads inclined to droop on the wall etc....not good enough really at €1550 per week!

The area around the house is very nice and the walk to Montanchez (in the cooler early morning) is lovely. Montanchez itself is very welcoming and we used the excellent outdoor municipal pool complex on several days which our children enjoyed very much. Lunch in the restaurant there is very good. Jamon from the various producers in the village has to be tasted to be believed!! Easy drives to Trujillo (gorgeous), Merida and Caceres are all worthwhile.

In summary, whilst this is a very nice house and the area interesting, it's perhaps not ideal for a family with children especially in the hot months.

Resposta do proprietário: Thanks for this review which I find positive but lacking perspective as it's from the point of view of parents with 4 young children, quite a rare occurence and not our usual group staying at the cortijo which tends to be 2 or 3 adult couples or couples with grown up children or a group of adult friends. The last 2 weeks of July were exceptionally hot all over Europe and although usually we do not need cooling in the house at night we have now installed fans in all the rooms just in case we get another heat wave. Usually the house withstands the heat well with a natural flow of cool air from the mountain at night through open windows protected with screening. Possibly these parents were worried about leaving windows open even though protected and the open porch outside 2 of the bedrooms is not on ground level but 2 .50 metres high with a strong railing so well protected....not that we have any security issues in our area which is a haven of tranquility. I think this family had a good time at the cortijo, we parted on warm terms, the only issue they mentioned was the heat. As to the pool, it is not exactly "small" certainly spacious enough for up to 8 people, it is 3.50 x 12.00, we have a salt water system and explained that the day before this family arrived we had replenished the salt and it take a day or two to clear but was only a little cloudy, still very clean and translucent, certainly not dirty. Surely parents should be happy to have salt water cleaning the pool rather than harmful chlorine. Oh and finally the shower head, one shower head in one bathroom which drooped because it was too heavy, an experiment with a power shower that didn't work so now replaced. I think it can be seen from the review that the family had a good holiday despite the challenging heat, I really appreciate all the plus points and must say they certainly took care of the house very well, leaving everything impeccably clean and tidy.

The pictures speak for themselves!

  • 5 de 5

Absolutely stunning countryside, views and situation. The pool is simply gorgeous, its outlook includes the 3 peaks of Montanchez and is amazing. The singletrack path to the house from the pool is so unique. The garden was filled with wildflowers. We can't speak highly enough about the scenery, the Cortijo and the countless things to do. We went to Trujillo, Merida and walked to Montanchez, all fabulous, but we have to come back to go to Caceres, Park Monfrague, Guadaloupe, and Proserpina Embalse.... and a few other things!.. 6 days wasnt enough.

Enjoy!.. Its a lovely place.

Resposta do proprietário: What a super review, very much appreciated! The comments about our own environment at Finca al-manzil are particularly heart warming, it's hard work keeping the cortijo, barn and finca looking good but feedback like this makes it all worthwhile. Also great to know that our clients are exploring the area around the finca especially our three wonderfully atmospheric towns, Trujillo, Merida and Caceres as well as the spectacular scenery and unspoilt countryside. We have been at Finca al-manzil for 10 years now and the most wonderful thing is how many clients return to stay again and also recommend us to family and friends. Another wonderful thing is that the roads are still very relaxing, I drove to Merida on the old road yesterday and passed 2 cars in 40 kms! A big thanks to this reviewer and all our clients, some of whom are now old friends. Pippa and Manfred.
