SALTO DEL CABALLO
A former smugglers headquarter is exactly on the border where Spains rural Extremadura meets the Natural Park Serra de São Mamede in Portugals Alto Alentejo.
For your holiday in two countries, our family-run guesthouse offers 2 self-catering apartments, where the names reflect the history of the house: apartment "Portugal" and apartment "Spain".
You can book either accommodation at a reduced rate for 2 people or, if you prefer not to self-cater, book as a B&B bedroom. You can book an evening meal, are very welcome to eat in our communal dining-/breakfast room or on the terrace. I would be happy to cook whatever you like, vegetarian, traditional or Spanish.
Enjoy your holiday in an authentically rural place. Family-run, family-friendly and you will be welcomed all year round, pets as well without extra charge. A small library and satellite TV as well as ADSL internet is available in our communal TV-room.
The patio formed by the two main buildings, provides several shady or sunny sitting-areas. There are sun lounges around the pool and 2 barbecues available.
Other things to note
There are no shops or bars in the village. Mobile phone network is Portuguese in the house and garden. 50m down the village you will have Spanish network coverage.
Pets are welcome, but they cannot be dangerous or cause damage to the house and gardens. Smoking allowed but always with respect for other guests and neighbours.
Dear holidaymaker, I live with my family just a 'stone's throw' or better a 'Salto del Caballo' away from the property, but in Portugal, and really love this beautiful area.
I'm sure you will like my 'Casa Salto del Caballo' as much as I do. I first saw it on a holiday myself and fell in love with the old historic building, that holds so many stories and secrets. At first it was just a dream to create a beautiful guest-house in this fantastic location and 15 years ago became reality. With a lot of experience by now, I will welcome you and your family and your pets exactly as I would like to be welcomed on my holiday.
