LAS CANTERAS: A NEW LB APPROVED IN EXTREMADURA

LAS CANTERAS: A NEW LB APPROVED IN EXTREMADURA

Atop a small hill in the heart of the Trujillo- Santa Marta de Magasca plains (Extremadura, SW Spain) is Casa Rural Las Canteras, sits this old farmhouse of the late 19th century, fully restored and perfectly refurbished. From here you can see some of the most emblematic species of the area:  Great and Little Bustards, Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, Great Spotted Cuckoo, Eurasian Black Vulture or even Spanish Imperial Eagle among many others. Its strategic location, just 12km from Trujillo, makes it an ideal base for exploring some of the best birding sites in Extremadura such as Monfragüe National Park,  Llanos de Caceres, Llanos de Belén, etc.
The house has nine double rooms. All rooms have a private bathroom and views of the surrounding fields. They also have central heating. Opposite the house there is a covered porch from which you can eat and bird all at once. The picturesque White Stork colony on the property offers excellent opportunities for birders with more photographic concerns.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable but one of the strengths of Las Canteras is undoubtedly the kitchen, run by Pilar, Paco’s mother. Traditional recipes from Extremadura use local, high-quality ingredients to ensure guests feel right at home! Well deserving of the Lonely Birder 4 feather rating we have awarded them.
