During the weekend I had the chance of doing a quick relaxing trip to this fantastic place in Montes de Toledo and to live two days of true relax in the middle of nature.
Relaxing trip in the middle of nature
El Refugio de Cristal is a sustainable rural house located 1km from Hontanar municipality that take advantage of renewable energy and manages the resources to save water, energy and products. Also, the location has no groundwater, faults or ground disturbances (electromagnetic alterations, ground natural radiation…) and you can really tell, since the very moment you enter the house you can feel the relax atmosphere, you can really rest in here, it is a great feeling not very common in the day-to-day stress of living in a big city.
Food here is castellano-manchego gastronomy, with very hight quality products and paying big attention to those with sensitivities, allergies or intolerances: you can ask for a menu adaptation and keep your health up while eating delicious foods. At breakfast I could enjoy super yummy gluten free cake, natural just squeeze fruit juice, herbal teas, gluten free toast with fruit marmalade, tomato, olive oil, scrambled eggs… At dinner they offer a degustation of local products where I had one of the very best salads I had ever tried.
Also, they own a little wine cellar with Castilla-La Mancha wines.
The house surroundings offer us a great activities experience since it is next to Parque Nacional de Cabañeros, where you can enjoy hiking any of their routes, it is so beautiful. All the stuff in the house is wonderful and will be able at any time to inform you or advice you about anything you want to know about the area, activities, whatever, so don’t hesitate in asking.
You can have extended info at their website and if you are motivated to live the experience and go, it would be awesome if you comment The Food Therapy sent you 😉
So now you know, any stress period has its cure here, where spending a weekend is success in relax 100% 🙂
