Nestled in a remote spot close to the village of Baltanas, this villa is an ancient Spanish house, furnished with wonderful family heirlooms and tastefully restored to suit modern lifestyles. The villa is made up of the main house, a guest house and a pavilion, which specialises in hosting creative events.

The exteriors are made up of traditional stone, with a bell at the roof and boasting spectacular views of the countryside. Within the grounds, there are woodlands, a pergola for alfresco dining, a vegetable garden and ecological farm. There is a private pool where guests can enjoy a relaxing soak within peaceful surroundings.

The main house has seven bedrooms and is decorated in an opulent style, with rich red tones and antique wooden furniture. There are several sitting areas for relaxing, with two large living rooms with cosy fireplaces and a well-stocked library. The red sitting room has plush neutral and floral-print sofas, a vintage writing desk and traditional art on the walls. The second, more modern living space is airy with brown sofas and honey-toned art.

There is a futuristic fully-equipped kitchen perfect for self-catering, decorated in red and white with plenty of prep space and glossy scarlet panelling. Dine around the striking blue formal table or alfresco on the terrace. In the corridors, there are patterned rugs on the hardwood floors and portrait art.

The bedrooms are a mixture of double and twin rooms, with beautiful bedspreads in colours including duck egg blue and floral red and gold. The rooms are bathed in natural light from the wooden shutter-windows and the homely decor makes the bedrooms a wonderful place to retreat to at the end of a long day exploring the surrounding area.

In the guest house, there are two charming bedrooms, one double and one single in sky blue and yellow, respectively. The bedspreads are beautiful - the yellow one is patterned in a brocade style and the bed in a private nook inside the room. There is a large open living area with a fireplace and a fully-equipped kitchen. On the terrace below there are fragrant almond trees and a dining area with a barbecue.

The pavilion has been adapted for professional use, from family events, conferences and workshops. It has its own kitchen and two lovely terraces absolutely ideal for open-air activities like yoga. There is also plenty of parking available nearby.

Loading map

Nestled within a serene spot 4km from Baltanas, which is famous for its 400 wineries all carved into the hill named El Castillo. Baltanas is the capital of the El Cerrato, in the Castilla y Leon region and 30km from Palencia. There are stunning countryside views in all directions from the villa, as the location is fairly remote.

The wine region between Ribera del Duero, Cigales, Rueda and Arlanza consists of medieval to contemporary producers, many of which have been in the family for hundreds of years. Around Baltanas there are also picturesque ancient churches and gorgeous sweeping countryside views.

There are many walking and bicycle trails around the Castillian hills, through fields of wheat and around the wetlands. El Cerrato is the ideal spot to reconnect with nature and appreciate the landscape. The area is popular with birdwatchers as it is home to many native species and diverse birdlife. Guests can go canoeing or kayaking around the famous Canal de Castilla and enjoy a peaceful day navigating the waters that stretch around the region.

Foodies will love this area, as charcuterie tastings including Iberico ham and local cheese are available. The villa can help you organise a gastronomy experience to sample the charcuterie or try a tapas course. In the area, there is a flagship cheese industry, where handcrafted Quesos Cerrato cheese is produced.

Take a day trip around the Castilla y Leon area, as there are many examples of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture and plenty of pretty towns to stroll around. The Roman villa of La Olmeda is a fine example of the archaeological wonders of the area - it was once a palace of the Roman empire, and it has stunning mosaics.

See a fine example of Visigothic art at the San Juan Basilica in El Cerrato, and take a trip to Segovia to see the famous Aqueduct, made up of 107 arches. It is one of the best-preserved pieces of Roman architecture and beautifully symbolises Segovia. Also in Segovia, you will find Alcazar Castle that inspired Disney's Sleeping Beauty, with bewitching turrets, surrounded by a moat and green wilderness. Enjoy the stunning view from the top of the tower.

This villa is great for families travelling with children, as there is plenty to do without even leaving the grounds. Kids have endless green space to enjoy and run around in, within the safe confines of the villa.

There is a sparkling private pool that is bound to be very popular with kids of all ages, and in both libraries, there is a great stock of board games, books and DVDs for children, so they will have plenty to keep them busy on a rainy day. The pool is specially desinged, with a shallow platform, so that kids can play safely. There is also a family room with a cinema that they will love, complete with a plasma screen television. Children are bound to be impressed with the grand decoration of the villa's interiors.

There are plenty of woodland trails for going for a family walk around the lakes and wetlands. The scenery is gorgeous and bound to impress the kids. They can see how many interesting birds they can spot and enjoy the fresh air. Kids can visit the ecological farm on-site and join in a tapas tasting, including lots of local cheeses.

For a bit of history, take the children to nearby Palenica or Valladolid and marvel and their stunning castles. They are filled with amazing structures and jaw-dropping pieces of architecture that kids will be able to appreciate. Both of these cities are also teeming with history - with Valladolid containing one of the oldest universities in the world!

Reviews

  • I hope to come back soon...

    on 19/10/2022

    We spent a spectacular weekend. The house is incredibly cosy, with a huge and perfectly equipped kitchen. The very large and comfortable rooms and the farm around the house invite you to disconnect from the daily routine and take a good walk in a very beautiful environment. Finally, Cristina is a charming person with whom it has been very easy to organize the stay. I hope to come back soon.

  • The property and views were all stunning!

    on 14/09/2022

    Words can’t describe what this experience was like! The house was so welcoming and ample. We were 13 and were very comfortable! Cristina went above and beyond to make our stay inviting! She coordinated a wine and tapas tasting with an enologist on site! The tasting was incredible! I highly highly recommend Cristina’s home for any getaway with a large group!! The property and views were all stunning!!!

  • A very special hidden gem...

    on 09/09/2022

    This is a very special hidden gem. Quite remote, but for us worth visiting this wild and wonderful part of Spain. The locals were so friendly and welcoming, Cristina welcomed us very warmly too, even inviting us to supper the evening we arrived hungry and tired. So very kind!! Perfect for Simba our dog too, she became fast friends with the resident dogs. Perfect!!

  • Visiting this house will ensure a trip to remember!

    on 24/08/2022

    This was one of the most incredible, most memorable holidays I can remember. The hostess, Cristina, was phenomenal, organizing so many special activities, from wine tasting to a full experience beekeeping, the whole while being a friendly and fluent translator. The wine tasting exceeded expectations; a fun game, followed by tapas to compliment the delicious wine selection, as we were talked through each one. The ultimate ending to the night, saw us exploring the historic underground wine cellar, an incredible piece of history, adding further mystery to the elegant and authentically Spanish property. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to go. Hiring transport from Madrid airport to the property was really simple (even with 17 of us!). Visiting this house will ensure a trip to remember.

  • The experience has been wonderful!

    on 18/05/2022

    We chose this beautiful house to spend the days before our daughter's wedding and the experience has been wonderful. The bride and groom threw a beautiful pre-wedding party (thank you, Cristina, for decorating the Pavilion for the occasion!) The wedding photographers were delighted with the setting for their work. In addition, we were able to enjoy with our friends because the house and all the spaces are huge and wonderful.
