Las Majadas!!!

Ok so nostalgia and memories flashing I saw the pictures of the park were not included in previous post on magical wonderful sublime Las Majadas, in the province of Cuenca, Autonomous community of Castilla La Mancha, Kingdom of Spain! Therefore, let me tell you a bit on this memorable spot of ours!

Las Majadas will be in our mind forever, we stayed here with wonderful vacation time renting a home with the entire family ,and using it as a base to see all of central Spain from the coast of Valencia to upwards of Segovia and down to Toledo. The town has an area of 87,25 km2 (about 34 sq miles) with a winter population of 317 folks, at a height of 1393 meters (about 4570 feet).

The town of Las Majadas is part of the Serrania de Cuenca , about 36 km from the Unesco World Heritage site of Cuenca. The thrill each day was driving down and up its winding and zig zag’s roads with gorgeous mountains views with lookout stops along the way to enjoy the scenery even more.


We walked each day to the small garden park at the entrance of the village; along the road CUV 9113 (carretera Villalba de la Sierra) and calle del Horno , around this latter you reach the Plaza Mayor of Las Majadas, continue and reach Calle Atanasio Lasso turn left and reach our reliable nice rental house,Casa Rural Pitu (see post). There is a nice garden here with a fountain and benches, nice to have a cold one and look around the hills in a quant Castilian mountain town! Superb!




As told several times, Spain is in me no matter where I go, or live, and so lucky to found a French women who spoked Spanish and like the idea of vacationing there even were thinking of retirement. Well the luck of the devil it could not be done as she passed away last April 30th 2018 from pancreatic cancer. My hopes were dashed and a new life is slowly coming together. However, the memories ,the souvenirs, the joys of the past with my dear late wife Martine will always be there intact. Las Majadas was a great place to be at. We are always remembering and réminiscences of times past where we had so much family joy here. It will be with me for the rest of my life.

Hope you too can enjoy these off the beaten path of my dear Spain, and remember , you read it here first jejeje! It will be worth your while to visit Las Majadas for the outdoors in us and visit wonderful Cuenca nearby. An excellent one two punch!!! recommended!!!
