The Finca Santa Marta farm-complex is divided in two stone-built mansions with original Extremadura characteristics, as they were meant to offer comfort to the owners’ family and contain the necessary installations for the wine and olive oil making.
At Finca Santa Marta, the former farmhouses – one private, the other, Santa Teresa, converted into a Casa Rural – are separated by a country lane winding through olivegroves lined by stone walls, leading to the 1km distant hamlet of Pago San Clemente where guests often go for an after dinner stroll under a star-studded sky.
Occasionally accompanied by the song of a golden oriol, barn owl, hoopoe or even a nightjar, the access to the hotel part (Finca Santa Teresa) and its attached dependence Los Alamos, passes through an orange and jasmin walled patio.
The carefully restored house has a small reception/office room at the entrance and two superior rooms on the ground floor (twin-bedded; extra bed possible), two superior rooms on the upper floor – one with access to a terrace (double bed; extra bed possible).
The Cigueñas (stork) suite, with access to a balcony and terrace, consists of one spacious living room, two large adjoining rooms (with double bed, the other with two beds), and a big bathroom. Sleeps 4.
Attached to the same patio, a separate unit, Lagar Los Alamos consists of six standard bedrooms. All rooms have their own bath/shower-room, equipped with the usual convenience toilet amenities (hair dryers etc.), central heating and a/c (cold and warm).
Further on, a Junior suite – Palomar (sleeps 3), is situated in an enclosed patio, the original farmyard with its own garden. The living room has a sofa /couch, and a twin bed in the bedroom adjoining.
A kitchenette with icebox and stove is equipped with essential articles. A separate standard room in front belongs to the same patio, enabling adequate adjustments for larger families. Dogs allowed.
The areas where WiFi facilities exist are under the porch of the entrance patio of Lagar Santa Teresa, and to a lesser degree inside the living room, Salon Sevilla. Because of its unusual proportions, each room is unique in size and decor. The beamed guestrooms are tastefully furnished in true elegant country style with a mixture of beamed ceilings, wrought-iron beds, antique armoires, floral bedspreads and curtains, complemented by original new bathrooms.
All the right ingredients are included for a delightful stay, as if in a comfortable private residence, reflecting Marta, the owner’s decorative skills.
