El Hotelito, living is the living-proof that country and modern life work well together. The search and peace for harmony can be found with welcoming spaces with agro-chic spirit. This hotel, in which the interiors are luminous, with clean architectural lines with contemporary furniture, the exteriors form part of the interior, due to the big windows which from the floor to the ceiling, visually joins the two. From the bedroom window, we can see the ranges of Gredos and Avila , we are in a privileged place –Navaluenga– on the banks of the Alberche. The nature in the surroundings is omnipresent. This welcoming building has been built with simple materials, interpreted with good taste, wood, polished concrete and leather. Elements which connects the hotel with the neighbouring equestrian environment because this landscape of hardwood woods, low- mountain slopes and hills of granite, demands a stroll on horse-back. An equestrian feeling follows us throughout our stay. In this atmosphere of interior peace, the hotel tells that all types of pets are welcome, “from canaries to horses”. In our desire to welcome our clients, the building is prepared to be comfortable for disabled people. It also has details that should never be left out, such as a library with fireplace and bar, a magic mixture of elements-a book, a fireplace and a nice drink. It does not cost much to be away.
The hotel has signs in Braille and embossed on room doors and communal bathrooms as well on other elements such as the sign of (do not disturb or please do up the room) hanging off the door…It is on one floor free of obstacles.
