Helechosa de los Montes
€ 169,500

This light, spacious, high spec. lakeside house is in the lovely little village of Helechosa de los Montes, situated between the nature reserves in the wooded mountains 20 minutes from Herrera del Duque and 40 minutes from the large town of Talavera de la Reina and about 2 hours drive from Madrid airport. The village is right on the lake shore and has all amenities needed for year round occupation. The accommodation is over two floors, with 6 double bedrooms (one with en-suite), lounge, dining/sitting room, large dining kitchen, pantry, 3 bath/shower rooms, a covered veranda and an open balcony both with stunning views over the lake, a large outbuilding/workshop/garage (120sq mtrs.), a log store and some fruit trees on a plot of 3,000 sq mtrs (3/4 of an acres) fully enclosed. This house is a rare opportunity for rural living with no close neighbours, on the edge of a village, in the most glorious countryside full of wildlife and it is priced to sell.



The Tajo Salor region (so named as the two rivers run north and south of the area) reaches from the village of Monroy, just north east of Cáceres , over to Alcántara in the west, very close to the Portuguese border. There are four villages east of the A66 motorway going north from Cáceres and these are known as the Quatro Lugares (the four places). These are all ideally based for close access to both Cáceres city and the national park of Monfragüe, a sanctuary for many species of wildlife and famous for its birds of prey.

West of the A66 lie the other 11 villages of the Tajo Salor. None of the villages here are close to each other as this part of Extremadura, like many other parts, is uncrowded with wide open spaces covered in the huge rocks that look like they are still pushing up through the earth and the oak trees that provide the acorns which flavours the famous pork and the Jamon Iberico, the wonderful tasting ham. The acorns are also the basis for the Extremaduran Kiss - the liqueur Bellota.

Although the region is very hot in the summer the many rivers, lakes and reservoirs provide cooling views and in the springtime the flowers in the meadows make the countryside come alive with a myriad of colours.
