In past years, rural landscapes have been subjected to accelerated transformation, resulting in fragmentation and melting identities. Anyway, it does seem that in rural ambiences one should defer from actions of total transformation. This is the case, a building restoration to transform the former family house into a pleasant and comfortable place to be. The first impression is that little has changed since centuries. The design interventions were concentrated along terraces and avoiding the darkness of traditional mountain houses. Let me introduce you the place: come on, in.
Location and surrounding area
This house is located in Montoro de Mezquita. Situated between the limestone cliff and the Guadalope river to the west of Maestrazgo mountain range, Montoro de Mezquita is a tiny village renowned for its unique geological scenery and for being inside a cul-de-sac valley. Remarkable gorges are one of the most distinctive features of this natural space.
There are plenty of country walks to enjoy right on your doorstep and popular walkboards, especially Vallore Balcony and Guadalope Pasarelas. Quintessential villages such as Villarluengo, Pitarque and Cañada de Benatanduz are just a few minutes drive away.
Situated at the top of the village, El Bailador has been lovingly restored and offers a spacious and comfortable accommodation for family gatherings in the Maestrazgo at any time of the year.
The well-equipped kitchen/dining area is located on the ground floor, complete with some dining table with seating for 10 guests. The house has a terrace and a pretty patio and lawned area with outdoor furniture perfect for al-fresco dining or simply relaxing after a long day exploring the Maestrazgo gorges.
The sitting room features a wood burning fireplace, ideal for those cosy winter evenings. Bedrooms are situated on the first floor. Two of them with a sumptuous king-size bed and en-suite shower room and the bedroom three and four with twin single beds and the en-suite shower room.
There is ample parking for up to four cars at the front of the property.
