What people say about “El Salto del Caballo”

  1. Alexander

    “Потрясающее место. Гостевой дом находится в деревенской глубинке прямо на испано-португальской границе. С учётом того, что разница во времени 1 час, хороший вариант для двойной встречи Нового Года :)) Всё оформлено очень по-домашнему, в деревенском стиле. Полностью укомплектованная кухня. Соль, перец, специи. Камин, гитара, масса книг путенводителей, журналов. Стиральная машина, стиральный порошок и т.п. Во внутреннем дворике 2 места для барбекю (уголь нужно иметь свой). Здесь же небольшой, но очень чистый бассейн (в середине октября купались). Очень милая хозяйка всё подробно показала, сказала не ограничивать себя в чекауте. В итоге уехали около 14:00.”

    Eva gave us a wonderful welcome and spent time telling us about the area and what to see and do. The accommodation was superb and very tranquil – we had a 2 bedroomed cottage – situated right on the border of Spain and Portugal. Eva made a lovely breakfast one morning including her own black grapes. She also arranged for a boat trip along the River Tejo which was great with lots of sightings of Griffin Vultures, and also arranged for a chef to cook a wonderful dinner for us one evening using local ingredients.

    Hemos pasado dos días, y porque teniamos las reservas posteriores confirmadas, si no, nos hubieramos quedado más tiempo. La casa te transporta a los años treinta, con las comodidades de ahora, Naturaleza,silencio, paz, noches estrelladas espectaculares y Eva la propietaria que te da un trato familiar, en todo momento da la sensación que te encuentras disfrutando de unos días en casa de un familiar. Muchas gracias y volveremos, seguro.

    Eva es encantadora y hará lo posible porque disfrutes del entorno. Todo bien decorado y al detalle, no le falta nada. Impagable la piscina (aunque pequeña), las dos barbacoas y las sillas de terraza en la que descansar y tomarte algo a la luz de la luna y las estrellas. El que quiera un lugar tranquilo, apacible, rural, lejos de las grandes capitales, este es su sitio.

    Wonderful place

    My husband and myself, along with our son and his wife had a very enjoyable stay at Salto Del Caballo. We felt like we had truly gotten away from it all at this tranquil place. There is no business of any kind in La Fontanera – the closest town with groceries or restaurants is about 10km away. Everyday we enjoyed nice walks through the Spanish or Portugese countryside. The kitchen in our Espana apartment had everything we needed to cook meals and we also did a lot of cooking on the grill outside our door. There is no microwave in the kitchen. Having a washing machine in the apartment was a big plus and there is a nice long line to hang clothes behind the property. The wi-fi at this property is excellent. This property is well-taken care of and it was a true pleasure to sit outside among all the plants. Eva was an excellent hostess full of good information about the surroundings and events in the area. Eva made sure we had clean towels every few days. A visit to Marvao, which is visible on top of big hill in the distance, is a place to definitely visit while staying here. We would definitely come back to Salto del Caballo again! Thank you again, Eva for a wonderful stay!

    Fuimos 4 amigos a celebrar un cumpleaños en el Festival Contempopránea. Está algo lejos del festival pero el lugar es genial. La casita es acogedora, dispone de aire acondicionado. Una piscina a compartir con la otra casita y barbacoa.
    La propietaria encantadora. Nos dejaron una cama extra porque le comenté que no éramos 2 parejas. En conclusión: un lugar tranquilo y acogedor para pasar unos días.

    Wir haben uns wie zuhause gefühlt, Eva ist mehr als freundlich, sie ist so herzlich und du hast das Gefühl, dass du bei Freunden bist. Mit Kindern ist es perfekt, ein schöner Patio mit Pool und Grill, mit Spielsachen und Rückzugsmöglichkeiten. Die Wohnung ist wunderschön eingerichtet und bestens ausgestattet.

    After spending time in Madrid, and a week at a resort in the Algarve, we were ready to get away. This place is the PERFECT get away. This is a quiet, beautiful, well kept, off the beaten path place to go. I wish we have had more time to spend there. The fire place was so nice to have in the evening, and especially on the cool mornings. The pool would be perfect when the weather heats up, to cool down after all the the great hiking trails that areright out your front door. Our hostess, Eva was what made PERFECT, even better. What a great lady.
    Thank you

    Perfect Country Hideaway
    My husband and I, along with our 2 dogs spent an amazingly relaxing week at Salto de Caballo. Eva was a wonderful host- so knowledgeable about the area, anticipating our needs, and always available should we need anything. The apartment was clean, charmingly decorated, and had everything we needed. There is enough in the area to fill your days with trips and hiking, but to be honest, we were very lazy. The weather was so nice for February that we spent most of our days sitting in in the garden reading and dreaming of what to cook on the wood grill. For city people, the quiet is priceless. We did manage to go to Marvao, the Eagle's Castle in Portugal, which is highly impressive. We would definitely come back and have already recommended Salto de Caballo to several friends. Eva, thanks so much for a memorable vacation!
