Apartment overview - owner's description
In personal atmosphere we offer a self-catering apartment, for 4-5 guests, with kitchen, dining-room and living-room. It is of course furnished, including a kitchen, with oven and hob, micro-wave, hot water, toaster, coffeemaker, kettle, dishes and cutlery. The heating is powered by a wood-burning stove and electric radiators.
The finca is about 150 years old, beautifully restored in 1998 but very rustic and authentically rural.
Our lovely terrace with small swimming-pool will round up a beautiful stay in the amazing nature of the Extremadura.
Right next door you can have a drink in the only village bar, very basic, very rustic and authentically rural!
Restaurants you find plenty in Spain or Portugal that will offer you the great variety of specialities of this area.
Meet the Extremadura and discover the unknown Alentejo of Portugal.
Once there, however, the visitor will surely not be disappointed, for this is a wonderfully restored accommodation with the added bonus of having some unique characteristics. Firstly, it is slap bang on the Spanish Portuguese border. You can literally come in from the Spanish side and walk out through the other doors onto the magnificent São Mamede Natural Park in Portugal.
Trekking is possible on sign-posted tracks or with a local guide (trekking bikes can be rented). Cycling and horse riding are available within 4km distance. The Golf Ammaia Club de Golf de Marvão is 5km away. Places to see in the area include Castelo de Vide, Marvão in Portugal, and the Dolmen Routes, important megalithic monuments in the area. Evora, Caceres and Meridais also nearby, where you can visit many old palaces, towers, churches and convents from roman times and the 14th and 16th Centuries.
Swimming is possible in rivers, lakes and several natural swimming-pools.

Dear holidaymaker, I live with my family just a stones throw or better a Salto del Caballo away from the property, but in Portugal, and really love this beautiful area. Im 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 10 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 welcome on my holiday.
