Five days out with Martin 112 species seen. We had some fairly cold weather but the birds didn't seem to mind. Some great backdrops to the water we visited with snow on the distant mountains. Good food, good wine and good company. Warm and comfortable accomadation.All you could wish for. A great recommend.

Your visit was a real pleasure for us Pam...we thoroughly enjoyed the evening conversations with you and especially showing you the birds of Extremadura..it is always great to be with someone who has such a deep appreciation of nature.

We went for the birding, but the rest of the experience did not disappoint. It's hard to believe, but El Recuerdo is even more charming than it looks in the photos. November is a beautiful time in Exremadura, the countryside green and refreshed from fall rains combined with brilliant autumn foliage makes for picture postcard views in all directions. Our 3 days of birding with Martin just flew by. His familiarity with the local environment is wide and deep; we barely scratched the surface of his birding knowledge. Next time we hope to give him more of a challenge. And just as important, he was a pleasant and easy companion. We also enjoyed our meals, good home cooking comprised of the fine local products and nicely presented. Be sure to get your fill of the homemade quince preserves.

November might not be your first thought if booking a holiday in Extremedura, but if you can cope with less heat, you might be rewarded with a verdant landscape full of resident, migrant and wintering wildlife. When I visited less than two weeks ago the tree colours in the mountains were glorious and the towns pleasantly quiet. I stayed with Claudia and Martin for only four nights. I should have gladly stayed longer. Their house is spotless and whilst I would always encourage people to sample the local restaurants, I didn't find better food than that made by Claudia. Very nice evening meals. A great place to stay if you wish to explore northern Extremedura.

A birdwatchers paradise! We have just returned from a week with Martin, Claudia and Patrick and we can highly recommend this small cosy hotel. Comfortable rooms, superb food and great hospitality and Martins knowledge of birds is second to none. We loved every minute and can highly recommend this lovely place. Will be going back in April.

We stayed for four nights on our recent holiday. Claudia and Martin couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Our room was very comfortable and the setting is rural and peaceful. Use of their pool was a positive bonus. It is in a great location for visiting other places like the Monfrugue Park, Merida, Guadaloupe, Caceres and, of course, Trujillo. Martin's knowledge of birds is first class and he suggested somewhere to go where we successfully sighted both a little and great bustard. We enjoyed one evening meal during our stay, lovely home fayre. All in all, great value for money.
