The River Lodge was built by owner Richard, in a gorgeous spot overlooking a bend in the Rio Sever. It’s a simple wooden deck with a canvas cabin set under a cork oak on the rocks. Furniture is either hand made stick style or bought second hand from nearby Badajoz. The mattress on the tree-trunk bed is a quality orthopaedic and the goose down duvet means that you’ll only be roughing it if you choose to. At the lodge there’s a gas hob, the river, the woods, some books and games and…not much else. But then, what do you really need? This is the sort of place where you can, if not must, get away from it all.
During your stay you’ll live like Richard does, off grid and off the land. The complimentary olive oil, wine and olive soap are all made a short walk away and if you explore the countryside and the nearby villages you’ll begin to get a feel for the rich culture and history of an area where some things have gone unchanged for centuries. You can explore this area on horseback or in the horse and cart too!
