Hello. I will introduce myself: my name is Carmen, and I’m the owner and manager of The Palacio Viejo de las Corchuelas country guesthouse. Welcome to our website. We have tried to build the nicest possible webpage, but no matter how hard we try, it will never ever convey the real magic of Las Corchuelas. If you really want to feel it, you have no choice but to come here, smell it, and taste it in person.
For me, Las Corchuelas is much more than just a beautiful property in the middle of a breath-taking nature reserve, Monfragüe National Park. It is the place where I grew up, and thanks to this guesthouse I can now follow my passion, which has become my way of life.
From as far back as I can remember, I have always wanted to live here, and my dream finally came true in 2005, when I opened this guesthouse. Now I can say that I thoroughly enjoy each and every day, every evening, and every time I watch the moon from this natural paradise.
I know exactly what I want to offer our guests: All the comfort that my ancestors used to afford themselves in the past, while preserving the traditional rustic style that I have always loved. To this end, I have brought all the furniture, cutlery, and objects that my family bequeathed to me back to life…and, of course, I have also retrieved all those traditional recipes that my grandmother used to cook. Everything here has a past, but I also wanted it to have a present and a future. This constitutes part of the charm that is Palacio Viejo de Las Corchuelas, and I am happy to say that my guests tell me that I have succeeded in making them feel this warm and welcoming atmosphere.
I have always loved meeting other people, and I’m always more than pleased to share my life in this land with anyone who cares to sit and listen. In fact, during the more than 10 years that I have now been running this guesthouse, I have managed not only to live the life I always dreamt of, but have also passed on my love for this land to other people who, like me, have fallen in love with it and have left a part of their hearts here.
That’s all that can be put into words. Welcome again to this piece of heaven on earth.
