Guests staying at one the villas offered by Trujillo Villas España will be offered a bespoke tour of the festival with a local cheese expert, who will be able to point out the best types of cheese, explain the process of making them and recommend specialty dishes in the local restaurants.
Trujillo is one of Extremadura’s most important historic and cultural towns and has been hosting the cheese festival since 1986. The walled hilltop town overlooks vast unspoilt countryside and dates back to 600BC. Birthplace of the Conquistadors, Trujillo has a rich history but has largely remained under the tourist radar.
Trujillo Villas España, the only villa rental company in the town, offers five restored properties, catering for varying sizes of group, all situated within walking distance of the main square. The villas range from a one bedroom artists studio with contemporary interiors to Villa Moritos, a restored conquistador’s mansion with sweeping views of the plains of Spain, sleeping eight people.
