This attractive stone lodging is set in a 30 hectare plot of olive groves and vineyards, in the heart of the Extremaduran dehesa. The buidling was originally a winery and olive oil press, now tastefully converted into a charming rural hotel.
There are 14 elegantly restored rooms and 2 suites enclosed by spacious gardens with a swimming pool.
Located in Trujillo that is halfway between Madrid and Lisbon with in the unspoilt region of Extremadura. The area is popular with birdwatchers and nature lovers and is close to the Medieval towns of Merida, Guadalupe, Caceres as well as the Monfragüe nature reserve.
Many artists have visited the Finca and this website showcases some of their work.
Finca Santa Marta is made up of three ancient farmhouses dating from the 18th century. Olive oil used to be produced in the old oil pressing unit or "almazara", presently converted into a large, beautifully decorated lounge and dining room. The almazara still features a unique 1874 oil pressing machinery, as well as the huge granite cones which donkeys used to pull, crushing the olives. In another part of the farmhouse, the bodega is a fine example of an Extremadura winery where grapes used to be trampled. Under its vaulted ceilings, a unique set of 14 age-old clay wine casks (tinajas) still remain intact. Hooks remain on the brick ceilings where hams used to be cured.
The three "casas": Santa Marta, Santa Teresa and Los Alamos, now contain 14 different sized bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. Each room has a different view on the neighbouring orchards, vineyards and olive groves in the surrounding hills. The access to each of these houses is through a traditional patio with orange trees, flower beds and scented jasmine.
