Trujillo Villas España featured in Director Magazine
Trujillo Villas España has been featured in Director Magazine, a publication that reaches individual company directors across a range of industries and company sizes.
In his article titled “Land of the Conquerors”, Robert Sly describes Extremadura as a region full of hidden charms waiting to be uncovered. From its history rich in the adventures of the conquistadors, to the charisma of Trujillo’s cobbled lanes and lively squares.
“After admiring our spacious master bedroom – complete with high-quality linens, rolltop bath and a wall-length bookcase lined with art, travel and history titles – we gathered for drinks on the terrace of the main villa and watched a glorious sunset before ambling down steep cobbled lanes into the Plaza Mayor – Trujillo’s dazzling main square.”
You’ll be hard pressed to leave your tranquil villa, but the authentic atmosphere of Trujillo and the surrounding region are worth exploring. From the generous locals to the scrumptious cuisine, soaking up the culture will leave you with lasting memories.
“As restaurants swung into action, the square suddenly filled with hundreds of excited children who darted around catching sweets tossed into the air by a lively parade of tall, colourfully costumed figures known as gigantes y cabezudos (giants and big heads) – a common sight at Spain’s multitude of vibrant festivals.”
From foodies to architecture buffs, there’s something for everyone in Trujillo and nearby Cáceres. Experiences range from the dazzling to the quirky, like a visit to the ‘nuns with buns’.
“[A]ny Trujillo itinerary should also include a visit to the “nuns with buns” – an enclosed Franciscan order selling biscuits and cakes via a turntable at the Santa Clara Convent. You can speak to them, but they’re forbidden to see you or reply. It’s a quirky experience.”
