A stylish Spain stay at a converted 19th-century blanket factory in the Sierra de Gata mountains - with breakfast, bottle of oil and late check-out

Formerly a 19th-century blanket and oil factory, this lovingly-converted property opened as a boutique hotel in 2006. But what makes it so standout is its location in the town of Valverde del Fresno in Spain’s beautiful Sierra de Gata Mountains. Not only will you be surrounded by a magical landscape, but you’ll also be just a two-hour drive from the historic cities of Cáceres and Salamanca and only 15-minutes from the border with Portugal.

While the stone exterior is an instant wow, the interiors definitely up the ante. There’s 18 uniquely-styled guest rooms with rustic-chic decor, a small outdoor swimming pool lined with sunloungers, and plenty of public spaces where you can kick back with a glass or two of Spanish wine. And it’s just as memorable on the dining front; not least for the signature restaurant that pulls focus on flavoursome Extremaduran cuisine made with fresh and seasonal ingredients.
