Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Alburquerque, Province of Badajoz, Extremadura
Beautifully restored medieval house located in the old quarter, by the impressive castle walls of this real Spanish town, steeped in history and offering huge views. Fully equipped, a perfect hideaway...

The house sleeps maximum 6 people (2 double bedrooms and 2 single sofa beds) There is one ground floor bathroom and the kitchen is fully furnished with gas oven, hob and fridge. A kitchen table seats 4 but there is also a patio table which seats 6-8 people comfortably. In summer months, the upstairs bedroom has a small air-conditioning system, the rest of the house stays cool due to foot-thick stone walls and the fact that the house is built into the hillside. In winter there is a log-fired stove, portable heating, bathroom radiator and all the beds have electric blankets.

Please note that the house, being centuries old, is built on sev...

A very nicely furnished apartment in central location, but quiet and in walking distance to all shops. The very well equipped kitchen has access to a yard with view onto the nearby castle. The bathroom is at the groundfloor, the two bedrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor. So you should not mind stairs. However the really nicely furnished rooms...

Situated close to restaurants and shops in the old town but with views for miles across the plains to the distant Sierras on one side and of the old fortifications and towering castle on the other. The large patio with its old orange tree is the perfect place to read, relax or to lie on your back watching the storks...

This multi levelled house is in the last row of stone houses before the castle's wall. We found it quiet and private with the bonus of being an easy 10 minute walk to the central plaza. Everything you need is available in Alburquerque but if you want to jump in your car and go to larger centres like Caceres, it's...

Thank you for your feedback and for being excellent guests!
