Finca Al-Manzil is an extensive finca in the stunning Sierra de Montanchez (Extremadura). Set in beautiful, unspoilt holm oak woodland within a protected mountain area, and yet only 30 minutes from three world heritage towns, Merida, Caceres and Trujillo.

Excellent paths from the finca for birdwatching, hiking, cycling and riding.  Bird watching  (see the house's own page on the area's birds) is particularly spectacular all around the estate (resident Eagle owl family)  and short trips away to Monfrague and the amazing stork colonies at Malpartida de Caceres. We have horses and bikes for hire. Experienced horse riders only but donkeys are a good alternative for most people either for riding or leading,  wonderful trekking in the mountain, traditional comfy saddles and packs provided for transporting pic-nics etc.

Very comfortable accommodation all year, self-catering in the cortijo and barn; B.&B. in cortijo. Each room furnished with an eclectic mix of antique and ethnic decoration.   Gorgeous views in all directions Note: the barn is for 2 people self-catering only, the cortijo for 6 people, self catering or b.&b

The pool runs with an eco-friendly salt water chlorinator to keep the water clean and very pleasant for swimming unlike traditional chlorine pools, it is set into the rocks and trees of the mountain. The seating area has great views of the peaks and over the surrounding countryside.

We have kept the grounds as natural as possible but with stone paths for better and safer access to all parts of the estate, especially the higher part which contains many old stone shelters, chozos (huts), springs and wonderful vistas from the spectacular rock formations . We want our guests to be able to enjoy a safe and rewarding wander around the finca and beyond, using the original ancient paths, two of which lead to the castle of Montanchez. We plan to restore as much pathway as possible as it is a truly great experience to walk on Roman and Moorish history.

We are in the excellent position of being able to offer an interesting and rewarding holiday for our guests. Enjoy the unique benefits to be gained from this area of Extremadura , the rich natural environment,  the ancient Roman and Moorish vestiges, the healthy, natural food products  such as the famous jamón, wines and chocolate fig bon bons .......and most of all the comfortable, friendly and versatile environment to enjoy all these pleasures at Finca Al-manzil.
