Set within a gloriously peaceful and natural environment in the beautiful region of Extremadura in Spain, La Habiba is a charming private studio where you can escape, relax and enjoy a stunning panorama of the Extremadura countryside and mountains.
The Extremadura region of Spain is known for its rugged unspoilt scenery, beautiful walking trails, diverse birdlife and oak forests full of black Iberic pigs, and where better from which to explore it than this secluded little studio. The Sierra de Montanchez is a wonderful place to discover on foot, the fascinating towns of Merida, Caceres and Trujillo are all just a 30 minute drive away and the studio itself is tranquil and remote, with a rooftop terrace that offers breathtaking views. There couldn’t be a better place for hiking, biking, bird watching and generally switching off.
The walking, riding and birdwatching are wonderful experiences due to the lack of urban development in the sierra. Nearest village is Arroyomolinos, 2kms walk or 5 mins drive where the unique ruta de molinos climbs up through a stunning gorge passing numerous ancient watermills. There is so much to see and do within an hour of Montanchez. Stunning countryside including mountains, plains, woodland and the very special dehesa environment of Extremadura, meadowland with cork oak and holm oak woods. Bicycle hire is available for easy riding on the lanes around the finca. We have 4 horses that are available for experienced riders and 1 donkey for gentler rides. There is also a riding stables nearby for trekking with a guide. We run a 7 night and 4 night cooking holiday at Finca al-manzil once a month except in July and August.
