Villa Hermosa is an exclusive and vast private territory which spreads along 1,200 hectares (about 3 thousand acres) within the Henares river valley, in the heartland of Spain, in the surroundings of the medieval city of Sigüenza, which is located in the Castilla La Mancha region.
Villa Hermosa is a historic natural reserve, which already appears quoted in XIV century´s inventory of royal places to hunt (Libro de la Montería de Alfonso XI). The main villa was built in Art Nouveau style at the end of the XIX century by the Duke of Pastrana. At that time, a private railway station was also opened by the National railroad company inside of the estate, near the villa. This station enabled important people from the Madrid political scene to visit the place in comfort. Even Queen Regent María Cristina of Habsburgo and King Alfonso XIII visited Villa Hermosa several times and enjoyed the private and secluded territory and its mineral waters. These waters are currently being bottled as natural mineral water in the Estate itself, under the brand “Font Vella Sigüenza”, which is the market leader in Spain. You will enjoy this fresh water on the property!
Villa Hermosa is the perfect place for large gatherings!
