PALACIO VIEJOA 150-hectare property in the heart of Monfragüe National Park in the province of Cáceres, Extremadure.
Our country compound is over two centuries old, and has been refurbished as a charming country guesthouse in the Extreme no traditional style.
EXTREMADURA’S DEHESASAn encounter with local cuisine and nature
Thanks to its privileged location, at the foot of Las Corchuelas mountain range -the backbone of Monfragüe National Park- our country guesthouse is a unique and unrivalled destination for those in search of nature in a peaceful and undisturbed location, nestled in groves of holm and cork oaks.
LEISUREThe Full Experience
During your stay in our guesthouse you can listen to deer bellowing during the mating season, go birdwatching and take part in other traditional rural activities such as bee-keeping, gardening, or shepherding. You can also help to prune our oaks or watch the night skies from one of the most ideal locations in Spain for stargazing.

Swimming pool and lake
SWIMMING POOL AND LAKE
In the heat of summer, you can use our swimming pool to cool down, and afterwards relax on the lawn and have a refreshing drink. For the enthusiastic swimmer, we recommend a dip in our “Olympic swimming pool” – the cool and tranquil lake.
We use our own local ingredients to prepare all our dishes: vegetables from our gardens, pork and game from local sources and jam made with our own home-grown fruit.
Breakfast and dinner are provided, and a packed lunch can be prepared on request.
What to see
Our guesthouse is located on the characteristic Extremeño dehesa (our distinctive meadows), in the middle of Monfragüe National Park. If you choose to pay us a visit, make sure you to stop by Salto del Gitano -a wonderful spot to watch birds of prey- and be sure not to miss the Castle of Monfragüe. Should you need more information about the area, you can always drop by the Information Centre in Villareal de San Carlos. If you enjoy walking then there are many other places worth a visit, such as the Portilla del Tiétar (the origin of the river Tiétar).
Our guests come from all over the world to practice many nature-focused pursuits, such as:
- Astronomical observation
- Farm activities
