Location: La Pajarona is situated in the picturesque village of Siruela, midway between Madrid and Seville, deep in the beautiful countryside of northern Extremadura, Spain. It is a century-old building that has preserved much of its traditional architecture while also modernising to provide elegant and comfortable rooms from which to explore the birds of the surrounding lands. In fact, much of the surrounding area, covering around 154,930 ha, is included in the Special Protection Area of La Serena y Sierras Periféricas, designated under the EU Birds Directive. Here, one can find, for example, Great and Little Bustards, Black Storks, Black and Griffon Vultures, Spanish Imperial, Golden and Bonelli’s Eagles, Eagle Owl, Pin-tailed and Black-bellied Sandgrouse, Thekla and Calandra Larks, and White Storks and Lesser Kestrels in the village itself. It is only a short drive of 34 km to Puerto Peña, beside the Serena reservoir, where boat rides can be arranged on the River Guadiana.
Services: La Pajarone offers traditional hospitality with local cuisine in the dining room, a range of activities on request (for example a flamenco evening) and a small library of books about the region as well as for a range of reading tastes. There is a courtyard with a swimming pool, a shady patio with night lights, and a sun terrace overlooking the Sierra de Siruela. WiFi is available throughout the property.
Guestrooms: There are eight double rooms with en suite bathroom, and a total capacity of 24 people. All rooms have TV, air conditioning and heating.
