About Casa Tranquila
Via a real Spanish dirt road you reach a beautiful house on the banks of a huge reservoir Orellana province of Estramadura which is suitable for 8 people. With a real Spanish road we mean that literally because the last 3 kilometers is about an unpaved road with stones and rocks. But yes, if the Spaniards can get over it, why don’t we? A matter of calm driving and then it works fine.
After this exciting ride (you will find that the more you drive it, you dare to go faster and faster) you will arrive in a well deserved paradise. Only five houses on the waterfront, most of which are not even inhabited except for the weekends before the holidays. The house itself is about 20 meters from the water’s edge (depending on which period you go, since Orellana is a reservoir, in the summer this will be about 15 meters away) and offers the possibility of fishing from the house.
Orellana is 5000 hectares and very clear, so you can also dive spectacularly. The view from the terrace is priceless. The wild rugged mountains in the background complete the atmosphere. The headland where the house is located is extremely quiet. A place where time has stood still for years.

Upon entering Casa Tranquila you immediately enter the attractive living room with a seating area, a fireplace and a television. The toilet is on your left. If you walk through the hallway, you come to the laundry room with washing machine, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom with double shower. On the 1st floor you will find a loft with a bedroom and bathroom. Adjacent to the living room you will find sliding doors to the covered terrace and the beautiful large garden with swimming pool. The terrace offers the opportunity to have breakfast, lunch, dinner or simply enjoy a glass of beer or wine outside. To the right of the terrace is the spacious kitchen equipped with every luxury.
Due to the warm and beautiful climate in Spain, life mainly takes place outdoors. The house has Dutch/English television. Casa Tranquila is heated and cooled by three air conditioners located in different places in the house, including an electric fireplace and floor heating.
The house is fully furnished and is one of the luxury houses that are rented in this region. The fully equipped kitchen has a refrigerator, induction hob, oven and all necessary kitchenware.
Many houses in the area of Orellana la Vieja do not always have water or electricity. These facilities are obtained in various ways. However, Casa Tranquila is equipped with electricity and running water, so you don’t have to worry about this.
The plot is completely fenced, making it ideal for bringing your pet.

The Orellana Reservoir
If you walk down your driveway you will arrive at the lake itself where you can also swim very well. The lake is the only Spanish inland water that has the “blue flag”. And is one of the cleanest European waters. This means that the water is very clean and clear. Because it is a reservoir, there are also many different depths to be found, even right in front of your own house up to 15 meters deep. In terms of fishing you can fish here for carp, black bass, pike, zander, American catfish. It is possible to rent fishing equipment. Please contact us for this. We do, however, advise you to bring your own mills and bite sounders at all times. If you come this way by car, then extra lead is certainly not a luxury. There are also many crawfish in the water. For this reason, an extra supply of heat shrink tubing is definitely recommended. Night fishing is not permitted. There is a night fishing zone on Orellana and we can arrange a boat transport for you.
The Orellana reservoir in the province of Extremadura is the last of the three major reservoirs that control the level of the Guadiana River (seen from where it enters Extremadura) and lies between the La Serena and Vegas Altas del Guadiana regions. The still waters of the reservoir dominate in the landscape, flanked by medium-high mountains (Sierra de Pela, 724 m., Sierra del Castillo, 697 m.) That protrude above the large surfaces. In the village of Orellana la Vieja, close to the house, you can learn Spanish culture or go to the nice bars and restaurants in the evening. There are also restaurants in the harbor and various activities are held here in the summer months. A supermarket can be reached within 15 minutes by car. In Orellana la Vieja there is also a market every Saturday with all kinds of delicious local vegetables and fruits. The grilled chicken is a must to buy!
