Palacio Viejo de las Corchuelas

Palacio Viejo de las Corchuelas is so much more than a spectacular rural B&B. It is living surrounded by nature. It is a magnificent place for bird watching. It is a front row seat for watching the stars at night. It is an opportunity to witness and engage in rural and agricultural activities.
It is Cuisine. It is Extremadura. It is Monfragüe. It is Peace.

–  THE PALACIO VIEJO –

Facilities

You won’t get a real taste of the Palacio until you have explored every corner of our accommodation.

In the spacious lounge and dining room, made up of noble materials such as stone and wood, guests can settle down in front of the granite fireplace and taste the local cuisine, savour a good wine or a homemade herbal tea, enjoy the silence or sink into a book.

On the warm summer days that Extremadura is famous for, it is highly recommended to spend some quality time by the pool, where Carmen may serve you a watermelon freshly harvested from the garden. A hammock in the shade of the mulberry tree will make sure you have a wonderful siesta after a refreshing dive. The pool is open from early morning until late at night, at which time you get to admire the stars above!

The garden and the patio are the ideal setting for enjoying a tranquil breakfast or dinner, while a gentle breeze carries along the sounds of the mountains.

Message from Carmen

Please let me introduce myself: I am Carmen, the owner, and I take care of the animals, tend the garden, bake the cakes and manage the B&B of the Palacio Viejo de Las Corchuelas… among many other things. For me las Corchuelas is so much more than a beautiful finca in the middle of the impressive natural setting where I spent my childhood and part of my adult life. For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to come back and settle down here.

And so a farmhouse that dates back to well before the18th century, owned by my family and located in what now is the Monfragüe National Park, was converted into a rural BB. Without hesitating one second I returned, dusted off my grandmother’s recipes and brought old furniture and household items back to life. That is part of the charm of the Palacio Viejo de Las Corchuelas, and over the years many guests have told me how much they appreciate the warm atmosphere of the house.

Having spent more than 15 years at the helm of the Palacio, I can wholeheartedly say that I am living the life that I always longed for: I enjoy every day, every sunset and every moonrise that I get to admire from this heavenly spot.

Should you decide to come and visit our Palacio Viejo de Las Corchuelas, you will be regaled with silences, odours, stars, trees, birds, happy animals, a fine vegetable garden and even better dishes. And you will have the privilege of wandering through the 150 hectares large estate without bumping into anyone else.

That’s all. I look forward to welcoming you in this little piece of heaven on earth.
