Homely, traditional stone house located in the Arribes del Duero Natural Park, declared by UNESCO a Biosphere Reserve. The house is placed in the village of Zarza de Pumareda, in the Portuguese border area:

The house is surrounded by beauty and peacefulness, in a quiet country area. It’s a beautiful rural setting perfect for escaping and relaxing in the middle of nature.

The house was built by my great-grandparents one century ago and it’s being gradually reformed with the help of my uncle Bosco.

It’s a modest, spacious and light house. Guests are allowed to use all the house. Feel welcome to discover it and feel at home.

Relax yourself, do some exercise and enjoy the natural and protected surroundings, taking it easy in a traditional house which offers you everything you need.

We had a very nice stay at the renovated country house at Zarza. It s a mixture of modern and antique interior design. Here you can experience the real Spanish countryside. Friendly villagers and a laid back country side atmosphere. The nature park Las Arribes is beautiful and full of surprises. There a lot of walking and mountain bike trails: waterfalls, La Pena rock, miradors (viewpoints from where you can see the river).

La casa está bien equipada y la anfitriona está continuamente pendiente de todos los detalles. El pueblo es pequeño y tranquilo. En los alrededores hay espacios preciosos para hacer senderismo bicis y ver paisajes. Muy recomendable.

Casa dentro del pueblo, muy tranquila, grande y espaciosa, cómoda para desconectar (no tele, no wifi). Marga cuida mucho los detalles, nos hizo muy agradable la estancia. El baño es pequeño y antiguo, pero lo quieren reformar Por lo demás, estuvimos genial.
