Environment & Activities La Quinta del Chocolatero

Location:

The Tormes Valley is the most rugged and diverse of all natural sites in Avila. Ideal place for nature lovers, but also sport, especially for mountaineers, climbers and snow lovers. Canoeing, rafting, horseback riding and mountain biking are popular activities.

It is located southwest of the province, between the mountains of Villafranca and Piedrahita and the peaks of Gredos. The Tormes River is born in the town of Navarredonda de Gredos (1580 m. above sea level. Tributaries are Aravalle and Corneja).

The characteristic landscape consists of oak, pine, chestnut, alder, birch and mountain broom. There is an interesting variety of flora, in some cases native. The mountain goat is Gredos emblem. Griffon vultures, otters and other species of amphibians and reptiles live adapted to this mountain territory. All villages in this region are mountain, picturesque, lovely. Their houses are made of stone with small windows to protect from cold winters.

Navatejares is a small town with fewer than one hundred inhabitants and is located on the banks of the Tormes River. It retains its parish church dedicated to San Bernabe and San Pedro Hermitage. Local festivals are held on June 11 in honor of San Bernabe.

Less than 30 minutes is the Jerte Valley (spectacular cherry blossoms), the well-preserved architecture of Candelario, Hervás Jewish quarter, La Covatilla Ski Resort in Bejar, Piedrahita, the Gredos platform.

But there are also areas of great interest in the village itself and its surroundings: oak forests (including the largest in Castile and Leon), the spectacular gorges of Tormes tributaries, hiking trails to the mountain glaciers (Nava, Barco, Caballeros), typical stone architecture of small mountain villages and delicious homemade food.

Three kilometres away - Barco de Avila with its barely 4,000 inhabitants is the regional commercial centre including markets, shops, chemist's, restaurants, clinics, shows), but it has preserved a taste of yesteryear - 14th-century Romanesque bridge, 14th-century Valdecorneja Castle overlooking the village, its arcaded square, t13th-14th-century Basilica, the remains of the old wall,...

Owner's Comments La Quinta del Chocolatero

Avila has a traditional cuisine focusing more on quality and authentic ingredients rather than new or showy ingredients - simple as simple perfect things do.

A summary of Avila cuisine: Snacking different varieties of sausage (Iberico Pork surely is the best, including different sausages, meats and ham). Tasting world famous El Barco butter beans, with "patatas revolconas" (simple but finger-licking) as a starter. For fish, you can not take anything but the delicate and tasty Tormes trout, especially for discerning palate.

Meat options are broader: special mention deserves Avila Beef, derived exclusively from Black Iberian Race. We'd like to highlight the famous steak, of unsurpassed quality. Avila Meat is red, shiny, firm to the touch, fine textured, flavorful and tender. Both roast lamb and suckling pig are taken according to the ancient canons, ie as a unique dish, served with a tasty salad, and not forgetting the pleasant company of bread and a jug of wine. A good stew is the best way to enjoy kid meat grown on mountain pastures.

For desserts, organic apples and pears from El Barco, goat cheeses from Sierra de Ávila, or delicious homemade desserts: shortcakes, "perrunillas", donuts, "floretas", filled rolls of marzipan, etc. We can not forget the famous Santa Teresa yolks.
