Welcome! You are on the website of a charming rural accommodation called
EL TORREÓN,THE TOWER is a charming rural hotel located in Piedralaves, in the Tiétar Valley,
on the southern slopes of the Sierra de Gredos. As a result of their orientation, the weather is most
pleasant throughout the year, which in turn causes a variety of flora, full of pine trees, oaks, chestnuts,
olives, fig trees, palm trees, aspens, junipers, poplars, ashes and cedars. From the top of the Sierra
de Gredos, the streams run by gorges, all of which gives the environment magnificent landscapes.
The TOWER is an example of this spectacle of nature, with a garden of 4000 m2, where we can enjoy
plants from the vegetation of the area.
