“Surpassed expectations - private, spacious, generous and spotlessly clean”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in Finca Valdecantos last week for my husband's 50th and would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday.

The house is very spacious - it sleeps 12 and a few more on the sofas in the various sitting rooms if needs be. The grounds are large - I'd guess 4 acres(?!), set partly in lawns. The pool is fantastic, at least twice the size of a normal villa pool. There are plenty places to sit out in the sun or shade. The whole place is kept really well by the very helpful guardian.

The house is well equipped as it is sometimes used for small weddings. I have never been in a house with so many glasses, plates, etc! The kitchen/pantry has 3 fridges, one of which has bags of ice which we were encouraged to use. You don't need to bring towels - there are 2 cupboards on the landing full of them!

Eric the owner was great to deal with. He responded promptly and was very helpful with advice on where to get the best jamon iberica, restaurants, shops etc. He made us feel very welcome. He even offered for the guardian to bring us to the supermarket (the house is 1km from the town).

The biggest drawback is the lack of aircon.The house has an early 80s feel to it - it is a bit dated in parts but I saw that as a positive. It has character. There are lots of paintings and sculptures.

We enjoyed a lovely meal in Navalcarnero in Las Cuevas de Navalcarnero, a very memorable restaurant. Check it out. The other nights we barbecued on the excellent bbq provided. It made me want to change the one I have at home.

Although it is only 1km from the town, you are in the middle of the country and the house and grounds are very - it is set back off the road, accessed via a long (gated) driveway, and the grounds are surrounded by trees. There are still some nice views of the hills though.

If you are looking for a good value relaxing break, look no further.
