Our home base Las Majadas, Casa Pitu

Moving along telling you all about my last trip family vacation to Spain. We finally arrive in our home base of Las Majadas ,in the Serrania de Cuenca mountains on a house 1400 meters or 6600 feet high in the mountain, name Casa Pitu. I find it on the rural houses site Top Rural. http://www.toprural.com/

The house webpage is here: http://www.casapitu.es/

Just to say it has been our best vacation ever ,not only because the location was great, the house fanstastic with all the trimming ,and the price right, but the host Luis and Ma Isabel were fantastic beyond the call of duty to make our stay a wonderful one full of great memories and even friendship. You will do well to rent from them in the future as we will definitively look forward to another opportunity.

We arrive on an earlier Saturday so the first thing after the great welcome by the owner hosts, we headed for the big town of Cuenca, UNESCO historical town, in search of………….food! groceries to stock our house. We found our favorite French chain Auchan which in Spain are call AlCampo (literal translation) on a shopping center right in town outskirst.

There we did our groceries and found upon recommendation by the house owners a wonderful bakery call Pasteleria Ruiz which we stock up on sweets, goodies!  Store AlCampo here: http://www.alcampo.es/mi-tienda?p_p_id=myShop_WAR_alcampoportlets_INSTANCE_KU0b&p_p_lifecycle=0&p_p_state=normal&p_p_mode=view&p_p_col_id=column-1&p_p_col_count=1

The pasteleria Ruiz has a branch in city center Cuenca and the one at AlCampo we purchase our goodies ,link here: http://confiteriaruiz.com/index.php?option=contacto

Once well stock we took a walk in the town, passing to get some fresh bread Sunday morning at bakery Los Gemelos (twins) Calle  Atanasio Lasso,7 ,with friendly local flavor. Took a walk around the Iglesia Senora del Sagrario (Church notre dame of the sanctuary) ; the small park by the avenida de la constitucion where we came in and out each day, and there is the bus stop for connection with Cuenca. For those interested on the bus Schedule is Rubiocars here : http://www.rubiocar.com/lineas-regulares.php?id=22

We pay a visit to the local bar cafe in plaza mayor, and had our first cold beer Mahou Cinco Estrellas (five stars) real Madrid beer for you; serve with sardines in olive oïl as a tapa. The name escapes me now but it is in front of a stone statue that is to the left of the photo.

Of course, we took some pictures of our home base house for the souvenirs that will last a long time. Indeed ,it was a wonderful mountain experience unique owners,and great all around family vacation, the best so far.

And we rest ready to hit for the first day , my Madrid. Stay tune for more lol!!!
