On this new ‘Go Slow’ birdwatching and natural history holiday we focus solely on the wealth of birdlife in Spain’s Extremadura region. We begin our holiday with direct flights to Madrid with British Airways, from where we travel south-west to our comfortable base in the heart of the Extremadura countryside. It is here, in the outstanding Viña las Torres, owned and managed by Juan Pedro and his wife Belen, that we spend seven relaxed nights. From this welcoming and homely base, we will explore at a gentle pace a range of habitats, from the undulating, sun-drenched steppes and shimmering plains to the oak-forested hills of Monfragüe National Park. Each day will feature an optional pre-breakfast walk, an unhurried post-breakfast start, coffee and toilet breaks in the picturesque and historic town of Trujillo, and plenty of time back at base to unwind, take a swim and freshen up before one of Belen’s delicious homemade dinners and Juan Pedro’s accompanying wine with tasting notes.
