About the property

Sleeps 14, ideal for families or large groups. A very special historic palacio, in prime position in Trujillo's stunning main square. Close to Shops and Eateries

Villa Piedras Albas - The palacio is one of Trujillo’s most unique historic landmarks. Built in 1530, the property has the prime view of Trujillo’s stunning main square from its Florentine arched loggia, which is styled as an al fresco terrace with dining and seating areas. You can watch the world go by with a coffee or glass of wine! The house has grand unusual interiors, outstanding stonework and finely carved wooden beamed ceilings. Outside there is a walled rose garden lined with lemon trees offering absolute peace and quiet and a lovely private swimming pool securely enclosed by spacious sunbathing areas. There is free on-street parking just outside the property.

Further Details:

Trujillo is one of the area’s most important historic and cultural towns and considered as Extremadura’s finest gem. The town dates back to 600BC and is famed for its strategic involvement in the discovery of the Americas and is the birthplace of the Conquistadors including Hernán Cortes (1485-1547) who conquered the Aztec Empire, Francisco Pizarro (1471-1541) who conquered the Inca Empire and founded Lima and Francisco de Orellana (1464-1536) who discovered the Amazon.

There are many artisan shops around Trujillo which sell the delicious local produce, delicious hams from the iberico pigs, cheeses, paprika, honey and local wines. There is a wonderful weekly local market, which happens every Thursday. Trujillo is host to the National Spanish Cheese Festival which happens annually in May and is a must-see for cheese lovers. The festival was recommended by Conde Nast Traveller and Harpers Bazaar magazines.

The best restaurants in Trujillo are in the main square. In summer months, the restaurants serve dinner outside on the main square itself which is an unforgettable experience. Enjoy reasonably priced local cuisine and delicious wines with a 360 degree view of the wondrous architecture as the backdrop.

We look forward to welcoming you to our property. Please enquire or visit our website for more details.
