About Casa Orilla, Spain
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 6 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 15 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.
Casa Orilla is a beautiful accommodation with a homely atmosphere and the front door under the beautiful covered terrace. And a completely fenced area that is ideal for pets. When you enter through the front door you are immediately in the living room of Casa Orilla with a sitting area and table with chairs, sofa with table and a fireplace. Straight ahead are the fitted kitchen with a fridge and an electric hob. The covered terrace makes it possible to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or simply enjoy a glass of beer or a good glass of wine in between. Because of the warm and beautiful climate, life in Spain mainly takes place outside. The house is equipped with Spanish TV. Casa Orilla has a large fireplace in the house and two air conditioners to cool and heat the house.

The Orellana Reservoir (Extremadura)
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.
This environment is very warm for us Dutch people. We do best here in spring and autumn. In the high season of June, July and August it gets around 50 degrees here! But against that it is nice here at Christmas time with day temperatures between 17-20 degrees. The Orellana reservoir in the province of Extramadura 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 (both of which are Badajoz province). ). 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. Please note that other times are used. Everything is closed between 2 pm and 5 pm to open again in the evening. You can dine at the restaurants around 8 o’clock in the evening for dinner. 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 tasty local vegetables and fruits. The grilled chicken is a must to buy!
