| I’m part of an old sixteenth century house,
built between 1485 and 1510 by Juan de Vargas, a gentleman of means
from Villanueva de los Infantes. My present owners bought me in 2003
and undertook a complex and arduous restoration project transforming
me into a unique and charming lodging in which the traditional, the
artistic and the contemporary harmoniously blend, leaving me quite
perfectly at the disposition of those whose visit me.
I’m situated at number 3, Calle Carvantes, in the historic heart
of Villanueva de los Infantes, capital of the famous and ancient Campo
de Montiel (Don Quixote, chapter 11, 1st part). The street is abundant
in handsome town-houses and elegant mansions and its pedestrian character
allows the visitor to enjoy the tranquility of a noiseless street
and almost feel its tangible silent murmurs.
The beautiful harmony of the Plaza Mayor’s (main square)
striking collection of architecture can be admired from my balconies,
dominated by the spectacularly imposing Church of San Andres.
