Self Catering Holiday (min 7 nights)
There is a fifteenth century hermitage, a charming 19th Century theatre (still put to use at fiesta times), and over all is an atmosphere of elegant order – perhaps a result of the time when the village was the administrative capital of the Sierra.
A butcher’s (reputed to be the best in the area), a supermarket, chemist’s, banks and several small shops keep you well supplied, while there is a restaurant and bars, and the local ‘hostal’ has a swimming pool open to non-residents.
A pretty park and playground, the local rivers providing trout fishing and swimming, excellent walking countryside all round, and its closeness to other pretty villages make Sequeros an excellent holiday base.
- Fantastic walking locally and in the Sierra de Francia (all abilities). Wild flowers galore, depending on the season.
- Stroll round Sequeros itself - there are so many fascinating little corners - don't miss a visit to the exquisite 19th century theatre.
- Explore historic medieval towns and villages nearby - La Alberca, Miranda del Castanar, Mogorraz, Villanueva del Conde..
- Outdoor activities - horse riding, quads etc
- Go up to La Pena de Francia to see the black virgin at the monastery there and to take in the views.
- Venture into Las Batuecas where Bunuel shot his early masterpiece "Land Without Bread". Visit the Carmelite monastery there where he stayed.
- Visit the lovely old town of Cuidad Rodrigo, a crucial border in the Peninsula War. with its fine plaza mayor and grand mansions.
- Have a day out in the stunning city of Salamanca.
- Local culture and produce - the local jamon serrano from 'Guijuelo' is particularly good. Try the local cherry liqueur.
