The farm where the house is a stream running through and across the sierra de Gredos. Vegetation grows spontaneously, allowing contemplate variety of wild plants and mushrooms.
The environment surrounding the house conveys peace and quiet... a perfect place to relax and unwind, away from the rush and noise place; where there is heard the singing of birds: blackbirds, magpies, cuckoo, oriole, jays, titmice, chickadees... all depending on the season.
A place where you can hear the silence.
Little light pollution, clear nights offer a wonderful spectacle of stars.
In autumn and spring we will cook a dish of mushrooms we collect if we are very confident to recognize as Galipierno (Macrolepiota Procera) or Boletus (Edulis).
