Among olive trees and with impressive overlooking the Sierra de Gredos, this cozy country house is protected from the rush. When the owners look back they see the old cow shelter transformed today in their retirement thanks to an intelligent reform, designed by the architect Alfonso Monteagudo and in which the original structure was maintained and materials were recovered, who collaborate today in the final result: a warm country-inspired decoration, although with discreet traditional details. Soledad and her husband open the doors of an idyllic place, Vaquería CantaElGallo, both for its interior and for the natural environment.

A discreet range of neutrals paints the house on stucco walls, Ceilings in concrete and with exposed wood and cement floors, which prolong the environments. This skillful handling of infallible tools such as color, light and coatings, conveys tranquility and order. The furniture, work and wood mostly define the country style but with doses of tradition and, even, stately notes through pieces brought from different parts of the world and rescued from antique dealers.

Another of the peculiarities of this house is its distribution: to a large central room for shared use - where the living room, dining room and kitchen are located - two rooms conceived as small apartments with a living area and integrated bathroom are attached. Each environment worships comfort with simple and functional furniture and it is the complements (antique mirrors, crockery containers or glass jars) that qualify compositions full of charm. The luxury: Space and simplicity.

The interest and care that the owners of this house put in their reconstruction can be seen in the result: rested spaces, prudent mixtures and pure harmony.

This country house, located in Jaraiz de la Vera (Cáceres), is part of the Vaquería CantaElGallo Hotel.

Plan and ideas of the reform

A current country house

- It is essential to use a 100% natural base: A white background reinforces the strengths of the house and gives breadth, luminosity and fluidity. Also natural should be the furniture materials (wood never left over) and fabrics (wool, linen, cotton ...).

- Freshness and warmth are compatible. This house is an example of that. Gone are the dark country shelters with a heavy interior design. In it the spatial organization is relevant: shared spaces, double uses, fair partitions and large windows.
