What you'll do
This is the best rated trip in Spain. Every single one of our 145 reviews are 5 stars. Incredible value for money. Day trip for nature lovers and foodies, transport (from pick up point) included. Visit a totally unspoiled Spanish village and enjoy natural local produce in a spectacular environment. The icing on the cake of your vacation in Spain. A special treat to yourself or a loved one for birthdays, anniversaries, graduation. A very individual experience, in small groups. Informative, but without endless tour guide announcements. We welcome you into our beautiful house which is built into the walls of a Moorish Castle constructed between 900 to 1000AD. I lead you to our private Castle escape tunnels under our property. Try honest foods (farm to table): 1) Bread /cakes from an old village bakery 2) Tastings of Manchego Cheeses, local honey, virgen olive oils 3) Organic meats which change season to season (veg/ vegan options on request) 4) Wines, after lunch coffee, a selection of Spanish liqueurs You also: 1) Walk in the olive groves & along the River Tagus 2) Visit the planes of Spain 3) Time to yourselves in the countryside 4) Explore the village, the Moorish Castle with private castle tunnels visit 3 promises: 1) It´s impossible to experience these hidden treasures without us 2) Be the only tourists in the village 3) Great memories of Real Spain.
I'm Paul from Manchester & my double act, Ian from Liverpool. Often we are together on this experience. The last time we went to Toledo we left hungry due to the 1000s of tourists who grabbed the last available restaurant tables! So we got in the car, went East of La Mancha, found delicious food which we ate listening to the birds by a fantastic 10th century castle with incredible views. I love the aqueduct in Segovia, but Ian thinks all the restaurants have become tourists traps selling pre-cooked greasy pig. Toledo and Segovia, the 2 main tourist day trips are beautiful, but at 6am before 500 busses arrive with 1000s of tourists. Come with us to 'Real unspoiled rural Spain'. We are like the food guys on TV who go around villages looking for original quality farm produce like Manchego cheese, baked products, honey & olive oil.

Where you'll be
Deep rural Spain. 1 hour east from Madrid in the Castille La Mancha region. Don Quixote land. The private caves on my property situated right below the Moorish 10th Century Castle. (You can't do this without me!). I show you the secret tunnels where the people escaped when the castle was under attack. I also show hidden spots along the river Tagus. The food tastings are in my home, the only house left built in the castle grounds.
