Nearby City Trip
The hotel is at 130 km from the Medieval city of Cáceres. This city is the capital of the province of the same name Cáceres in the Extremadura region.
This World Heritage city is located 300 kilometers southwest of Spain’s vibrant capital Madrid, on the Silver Route (=Vía de la Plata), an old Roman road that forms one of the “Caminos to Santiago de Compostela” ( Holy Road to Santiago de Compostela).
The absolute top attraction of Cáceres is the old walled city center, which consists of a labyrinth of narrow streets with numerous idyllic squares, palaces, churches and monasteries such as the Santa Maria Church and the Moorish Veleta Palace.
Most of the palaces, churches and monasteries date from the twelfth up to the sixteenth century, when the city flourished as a political and trade center after the conquest of the Christians from the Moors.
Traces from the Moorish and even Roman times can still be found in numerous buildings, including in the city wall and the stunning underground water reservoir (=aljibe) of the medieval city. A water reservoir of about 10 by 15 meters, in which rainwater was collected to provide the residents of the entire city with water. The water reservoir is located under the Valetas Palace, which is part of the Museo de Cáceres (=museum of Cáceres). Roman remains can also be seen in the Valetas Palace.

When the project to create a rural hotel was launched in 1999, the owners decided that one of the basic pillars had to be the hotel’s relationship with the environment.
They plan to carry out a rehabilitation based on bioclimatic parameters. These parameters included aspects of the building’s own architectural design as well as the progressive incorporation of different systems and strategies that made it possible to create a building with a reduced ecological footprint.
After arduous struggle and a close relationship with the team of architects and others involved in the project, a hotel was built that incorporated a whole series of bioclimatic parameters and techniques from the beginning,
Among the most important:
– Transparent floors were used that allow the passage of natural light from the skylight to the living room 14 meters below.
– “Cross ventilation” systems were designed in the rooms, and “chimney effect” in the living room, as the Etruscans did two thousand years ago.
– All bathrooms were designed with natural light.
– Screen-type fiberglass screens were incorporated into the balconies to prevent the entry of solar radiation in summer.
– The building was equipped with a self-ventilated roof specifically designed for the hotel, which achieves great effectiveness with a very light weight.
– Underfloor heating with water was incorporated in the common areas to avoid energy losses due to the high ceilings in these areas. In addition to working with water at a low temperature of 45º
– A purification plant has been created to treat wastewater. The treated water can meet the irrigation needs (microdiffusion drip and sprinkling) of the garden.
– and much more

The majority client is national, from all over Spain. Actually the international client is a minority.
Economic level of the medium-high client.
Currently this is an unexploited business line.
Although a very interesting and highly profitable business line to be exploited by a new owner. Moreover, when advertising on international “Wedding Sites” attracting international clientele.
Since 2008 the actual owner keeps the hotel open only between 90 and 100 days a year, limited only to weekends and Easter and about 20 days in summer
Resulting in 90.000 euro for this very limited period.
A conservative estimate of a “normal” opening of 11 months a year would lead to a turnover of around 300.000 euros per year to be increased by organizing multiple venues per year.
Additionally, it is highly recommended for new owners to open alternative business lines: venues/ events/ celebrations as well as opening restaurant and cafeteria, to the non-hosted public.
