I had already been to Castilla la Mancha about a year ago, so the beautiful landscape, the healing nature, the deep silence and the uniqueness of the destination was not a surprise for me. But when I arrived to La Nava, I could immediately feel the benefit and privilege of staying in such a property. It is the finest country private estate I have ever seen, but the reason why I felt I could be its ambassador, was the “how you feel” when you are at La Nava del Barranco. You can easily loose count on what day it is.
AT A GLANCE
Half way between Madrid and Andalucía, right in the land of Don Quijote, only a few privileged will know of probably the most exclusive “Country Private Estate” in Spain. Located in a natural retreat it offers a universe of experiences in privacy and luxury.
The location is superb right on top of a hill. This is about 6,000 hectares of unspoiled nature and carefully crafted, exclusive experiences. Spot deer, rams, rabbits, thousands of birds and even endangered species on a 4×4 photo safari. Your clients can enjoy a horseback adventure through the Castilian countryside or admire it from above on a thrilling hot air balloon ride. And a private airstrip of more than 2km. What about that?
A COUNTRY PRIVATE ESTATE: THE CONCEPT
An ultimate luxury all-inclusive experience in with anything that is available at La Nava your client can enjoy. Pricing starts from a set price per night for the whole unit and will vary depending on the number of guests, but then everything is included, each meal, drink, and bespoke experience.
For decades, La Nava has been owned and operated by the Medem family. Thanks to their involvement in the Spanish tradition of partridge shooting, the villa has been closely linked to this activity throughout its past. Today, Javier Medem preserves the spirit of the traditional family business while taking La Nava to new heights—updating its offering while paying respect to its history and opening it to the worldwide luxury leisure market so more people can enjoy it.
