About the property

Farmhouse in Yeste, Castilla da Mancha, Spain - Peaceful Mountain Retreat, suitable for Groups or Families

This is a large farmhouse with oodles of internal and outside space. Being newly renovated, everything works and is modern, although original features have been preserved. Sitting on either of the terraces, the extensive view is of olives trees, sheep grazing and being moved on by the shepherd, eagles, bee-eaters, rollers, hoopoes and a variety of other birds, wildflowers, hills in the middle distance, mountains in the background. The overpowering feeling is of quietness and space. If you are self-contained people, you don't have to move far to have an enjoyable holiday: walking to various scenic locations, barbecues, picnics, reading in the chair hammock on the terrace, refreshing yourself in the outside spa. To have a break from all that relaxation, you can take any number of drives through rugged mountain country within a stone's throw. Nearby towns, authentically Spanish and unspoiled by tourist activity, give you a taste of the real Spain.

What a find, this is the best house we have ever stayed in.

We have hired out 14 houses in the last 4 years from owners direct all have been good. but this one was the best by a long chalk.

It was immaculate, clean, fully equipped even down to providing shampoo? -- I use to be a builder and for the first time in many years i was JEALOUS of how Helen and Clare had up dated this house, so professionally and tactfully maintaining most of the original features,and putting in very high spec fixtures and fittings.

The location was breathtaking, and with a hot tub!!!!! to boot, we had wonderful drives to off the beaten track villages. the local food is excellent and cheap.

The down side was we had to leave after one week.Thanks for hiring us your house-- NO PALACE -- As a great statesman once said we shall return. Mick and Bet

Well worth the long flight from OZ

  • 5 of 5

A holiday at Casa Tomillo is much more than that - it is an experience to be recalled with pleasure for the rest of one's life. The villa is fully equipped so that one need not leave the property to have a relaxing and fun-filled vacation. Or one can explore the surrounding countryside with its magnificent scenery, visit old Spanish towns and villages, wine and dine at local cafes with authentic regional cuisine and baste in the glorious sunshine. My time here has been SO worth the long flight from Oz.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've now been here twice and couldn't wish for a more relaxed holiday. This house and garden provide the ultimate getaway for reading, bird-watching, walking, cycling and the occasional glass of wine!

Our offspring in their early twenties were also captivated, even though they had to forgo any kind of night life; here you don't need more than a family meal around the table and conversation into the night.

The local towns are just that; local - no pretensions or pandering to tourists.

We'll most certainly be back.

Our very special holiday

  • 5 of 5

If you want to laze in a beach or pool forget it! It is the most magical place that we have discovered in travelling remote parts of Europe for the last 40 years. You cannot even find a postcard to buy.You have to like geckos and wonderful butterflies.

If you love birds, wildlife and magnificent scenery you will love it. The sky is flooded with stars, the milky way like a river of light. Eagles and egyptian vultures circle overhead.

The house is well appointed and spotless. If you like cooking all is there for you.

Simply wonderful.

Jan and Mike

Outside: There is a double BBQ. Close by is a very large outside table, shaded in summer and unshaded in winter. Yet another eating space is the "walled garden", providing a perfect space for breakfast in summer, lunch in winter and gently-lit evening entertaining. A preferred alternative to a swimming pool is the outside hot tub. In summer, at its lowest setting, it is a good cooling system. At other times of the year, heated and surrounded by nature, it is a very special experience. A starry night in this huge black night sky is best viewed from a steamy hot tub with a glass of wine in hand. A traditional bread oven. Boules court. Utility Room: Washing machine. Additional storage. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / All bed linen and towels are included. Washing of linen and house cleaning can be arranged for an additional cost. Other: Study with desk. Terrace (upstairs) with uninterrupted views across olive groves and hills, with table and chairs, linking the kitchen with the dining room.
