About Casita Orellana
Right on the beautiful Lake Orellana, the beautiful Casita Orellana is located 80 meters from the shore on a plot of 1000 m2.
Lake Orellana is a reservoir of 5,000 hectares and due to its shape with enormous bays, the water has a shore of several 100 kilometers. The water is deep blue in color and crystal clear. For years Orellana has had the blue flag, which only the cleanest lakes in Spain receive. The lake has a great stock of tench, pike-perch, blackbass, pike, Iberian barbel and huge carp up to 36 kilos.

It is not possible to fish directly from the house, but of course you can place a parasol on the waterfront in front of the house for shade and lay out your fishing rods from there. Also ideal for a family holiday. The family can enjoy all the luxury that the house offers. And the anglers can expand the package to transport for carp fishing somewhere on the lake. Or the predatory anglers can go out by boat. In fact, everything can be combined for the anglers, in consultation.
When you enter you immediately find yourself in the living room of Casita Orellana. The living room area is on your left. And when you walk through there you will find the two bedrooms and bathroom. The open kitchen with bar provides a spacious feeling. The most beautiful part remains the terrace with the view of the water. Many people spend more time outside than in the house. The terrace has a large table with 6 chairs for outdoor dining. And there is a lounge area where you can sit with a good book and a beautiful view. Because the living area with large balcony is on the first floor, you have a beautiful view over this part of the lake and you can see the harbor with its cozy bars and restaurants on the other side. These are open in the summer months. The house has recently been completely renovated and, in addition to a beautiful living room with open kitchen and large patio doors to the balcony, has 2 bedrooms and a beautiful bathroom. The largest bedroom has a double bed while the other bedroom has 2 single beds. The electricity is provided by solar panels and a good battery pack, which provides more than enough electricity for normal use. There is a generator to recharge the batteries if necessary. Cooking is done on gas and heating in the colder winter months is provided by a manual pellet stove. In short, a beautiful house in a beautiful location.
Layout of the house on the first floor:
– Living room
– Bedroom 1: 1x double bed
– Bedroom 2: 2x single bed

The Orellana Reservoir (Extremadura)
If you walk down your driveway you will arrive at the lake itself, where you can also swim or enjoy different kinds of waterspouts. The lake is the only Spanish inland lake 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, 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, pike-perch, American channel catfish. It is possible to rent fishing equipment. Please contact us for this. We always recommend that you bring your own reels and bite sounders. If you are coming this way by car, extra lead is certainly not an unnecessary luxury. There are also many crayfish in the water. This is why an extra stock of shrink tubing is definitely recommended. Night fishing is not allowed. There is a night fishing zone on Orellana and we can arrange boat transport for you.
The Orellana reservoir in the province of Extramadura is the last of the three large reservoirs that regulate the level of the Guadiana River (as seen from where it enters Extremadura) and is located between the regions of La Serena and Vegas Altas del Guadiana (both province of Badajoz ). The stagnant waters of the reservoir dominate the landscape, flanked by semi-high mountains (Sierra de Pela, 724 m., Sierra del Castillo, 697 m.) that rise above the large areas. In the village of Orellana la Vieja, near the house, you can experience 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, a market is also held every Saturday with all kinds of tasty local vegetables and fruit. The grilled chicken is highly recommended!
