La Alberca is located in the heart of the Batuecas-Sierra de Francia Nature Park, which is, in turn, part of a recently declared Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. In addition to enjoying the matchless charm of La Alberca, the cottage gives you access to the park’s most interesting sites, from the high mountain of the Sierra de Bejar to the lush Mediterranean valley of Las Batuecas in just a few kilometers. Must-sees are the Peña de Francia Peak, which overlooks the entire Sierra de Francia, Las Hurdes area and the other towns along the mountain range, like Miranda del Castañar, Mogarraz and San Martín del Castañar, which like La Alberca, have been officially declared of historic interest. You’ll be able to enjoy this unrivalled setting year-round, where you can take part in all kinds of activities or simply relax and bask in the tranquil and cheerful life of its towns.
