We loved our stay at Las Casas del Soto. Ana, the owner, met us at the home, showed us the home, gave detailed instructions on how to use the wood stove which had more than ample supplies (and which was absolutely lovely!) and showed us the local cafe. The home is located in a very small town, surrounded by fields and farms. If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet, authentic rural Spain experience this is your place! The home is located a twenty minute drive from Segovia, which we visited twice and which is a gorgeous historic city. Coca, Salamanca, and Avila are all within driving distance of the home for day trips. Although we only drove through it, there are national parks within driving distance as well. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious, and in general the home was everything we were looking for. Thank you, Ana, for sharing your home with us!
As Americans touring Spain, our four night stay in El Boalo was just great. This home is a great choice for travelers looking for a home base outside Madrid. Just 40 minutes from the Madrid airport, we found ourselves in a quaint, mountain side community with beauty in every direction. Each day we made side trips to amazing sites, including San Lorenzo and its giant monastery, El Escorial; the historic Segovia with its Roman aqueduct and historic Alcazar; San Ildefonso to see the impressive Palace and gardens; and Avila for its walled old city and wonderful gothic cathedral. All locations were reached in less than an hour and the amazing drive over Navacerrada pass was an exciting and beautiful side trip in its own right. Our only regret was that we did not allow enough time to hike the beautiful mountains that surrounded us with wonderful vistas. One could stay in this lovely home for a week of hiking without running out of trails and peaks to conquer. The home is beautifully done; a touch of Bavaria in Spain. It is set in a second home community that is quiet and low key. We walked to the center of town for generous and delicious meals at local restaurants served at a fair price, sitting outside with the locals. Heinz the owner was generous with is time showing us through the home and explaining the area thoroughly. The house has a large kitchen, nice living room with a fireplace, dining area with a view and a large porch to enjoy the outdoors. If I lived in Madrid and liked hiking, I would rent this home 3-4 times a year just to be in the lovely spot! We had a great time, we would love to come back.
