Welcome to our finca - a haven of tranquility in rural Spain

Finca Marowa is a large, modern, eco-friendly villa, sleeping up to 6 persons, with a beautiful private pool near the village of Valdefuentes in Cáceres province of Extremadura. Set in 3.5 hectares of wooded farmland (about 8 acres) and used for grazing sheep, the finca offers guests a tranquility rarely found in the modern world, with only the sound of sheep bells and birdsong to disturb you while on holiday. Surrounded by beautiful granite outcrops and boulders the finca is loacted in a typical rural area of Extremadura with many paths and caminos for walking, birding or biking.

Situated in the middle of a cultural triangle formed by World Heritage Sites of Cáceres and Trujillo to the north, both with important links to the Spanish Conquistadors, and Mérida to the south, with its stunning Roman and Moorish architecture, we are very centrally located to visit the numerous tourist attractions in the region. Guadalupe, another world Heritage Site, with its rekowned 13th century monastery is only 125 kms away.

Monfrague National Park, with its wonderful bird life, is only about an hour's drive away, while the small hilltop town of Montanchez, famed for the quality of the Jamón Iberico cured locally, is only 15 minutes drive away.

In the nearby village of Valdefuentes (3 km) there are a number of shops and bars and in the twice-weekly markets you can find a variety of fresh produce, local sheep and goat's milk cheeses and local meat products.  A number of Bodegas in the village offer wines made from locally grown grapes.

The house offers modern, comfortable self-catering accommodation, with a large, open-plan public area having an efficient, centrally situated wood-burning stove, large granite-topped kitchen island unit and french windows leading out to the shady SE facing terrace.

3 large en-suite bedrooms, shady patios and terraces and a new swimming pool and petanque piste are all available for your enjoyment and relaxation. The house has been built with the environment in mind and relies on solar energy for power and domestic hot water.
