Save £1,000 on a Stay in a Conquistador’s House in Spain
During September and October 2012, stay for one week in Villa Moritos, once a conquistador’s house in the medieval town of Trujillo in South West Spain, and save £1,000. The villa, in the region of Extremadura, which still has hot weather in September and October, now costs £1,950!
Villa Moritos, which sleeps up to eight people, sits high on a hillside with panoramic views over the countryside towards Portugal and the Gredos mountains. The 16th century house, which has been restored from ruins, is comfortably furnished with many original features such as fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. The villa is surrounded by walled gardens with lots of outdoor space. Front and side terraces run the full length of the house with plenty of outdoor dining and seating areas and a private swimming pool.
The house is in the medieval part of Trujillo, a pretty town steeped in history dating back to 600BC. The conquistadors, who conquered territory for the Spanish empire and opened up trade routes, put Trujillo on the map. Its most famous resident was Francisco Pizarro, one of Spain’s great explorers and the man who both conquered Peru and founded Lima. Trujillo is a two and a half hours drive from Madrid, which is served by British Airways, Easyjet and Ryanair.
The offer is valid for stays between 14 September until the 31st October 2012. You can view the bookings and availability of Villa Moritos here.
