La Hermandad de Villalba

Extremadura, Spain
A Cultural Heritage Landmark

This villa for rent in Spain is the oldest preserved dwelling in the small Iberian town of Villalba de los Barros. Built in the late 18th century, it originally belonged to one of the many families of "hidalgos" who settled in the south of Extremadura. Through the beginning of the 20th century, it was home to several noble families until 1946, when it became union headquarters for the Farmers and Cattlemen of Villalba. 

Bought by a local family and carefully restored by Madrid-based studio Lucas y Hernández-Gil, the villa's graceful features and rural character recall the essence of the Extremaduran manor houses of the past. A protected Cultural Heritage landmark, the renovations were designed to preserve the building's distinctive elements, including the ornate façade and doors, vaulted ceilings, and the handcrafted tiles and materials used. Located in the central square, this historic gem is a unique part of the region's heritage and welcoming hospitality.

Located in one of the most beautiful corners of the Iberian Peninsula, this villa for rent in Spain sits in the central square of the small rural town of Villalba de los Barros. The owners set out to preserve the historic elements that make the house so unique, restoring the interiors with handcrafted materials and color finishes in tones of the Tierra de Barros landscape.   

From the street level entrance, the original ground floor layout has been preserved, with the communal living areas, a large dining room and fully-equipped kitchen that open out to a walled courtyard patio with a cooling plunge pool at the back. The top floor once served as the former larder and has been slightly expanded to accommodate three double bedrooms. 

Kept sparsely decorated, with meticulously refined craftsmanship, the house retains its earthy character and richly defined heritage.
