Finca Las Cañadas, safari tents on a eco-sheepfarm
We love to share the experience of living on our 20 hectare sheep farm. Those who love unspoilt nature and adventurous outdoor activities came to the right place! Waking up every day with brilliant sunshine, the twittering of the birds, the hum of the bees, bleating of the sheep and in the evening enjoy a rousing star sky and the silence of the night, this alone is a gift for the city people! A back to nature experience with a touch of luxury… that is what we can offer you.
We have 2 luxury safari tents and 1 luxury mobile home with wooden porch. Each tent has his own private surroundings, this means that the tent are spread over the finca. As if you were alone in the middle of nature.The tents have each a different fresh colour combination for the interior and details. Especially important to us is that the tent both feels cosy and springfresh. We are very satisfied with the end result. A cottage we’d like staying in ourselves. Besides the canvas there is little difference with a real house. Each tent has its own fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, plenty of storage space for your own stuff and all you need for cooking during your holiday. Also the bathroom is fully equipped, with washbasin, pedle stone shower and a dry ecotoilet. Luxury bathlinen is also provided. Comfortable beds with, next to the duvets also cotton sheets for sultry nights. The dining room and the cooking block can be placed outside, for al-fresco dining under the stars. In each tent are the openings fitted with mosquito nettings , the beds have their own ‘clam boo’ and the terrace lighting is anti-mosquito, because who makes light in the middle of nature, of course, also attracts uninvited visitors.
Things To Do & The Area
The daily activities on our finca: the sheep, giving a bottle to lambs, in the huerto (vegetable garden) the most beautiful tomatoes picking are an adventure in itself. But you can also laze under a big Cork oak or take a refreshing bath in our pool. Walks on the finca or up to one of the lakes nearby and have a swim in complete nature.
In the vicinity there is also a lot to explore.
Each village has its own piscina naturale: a piece of a fast flowing mountain river is dammed every summer and this creates a blissful natural swimming paradise. The cosy chiringuito (drink /meal bar) gives it a real Spanish spark. Nearby there are also two lakes where you can swim, fish or boating.
For many mountain bikers or cycling fans this is a lovely place to trips. Hiking trails are plentiful along the lakes or through the meadows and along the old walls of granite.
All days there are nice markets in the nearby villages.
A quiet horse trip along old roads through the olive groves in the sunset with the whole family can too.
With Portugal a short distance away, this also invites into a day trip! In addition, there are the larger cities such as Caceres and Plascencia with their historical centres that are definitely worth to look at.
