Curating your stay
Cáceres in Extremadura is a lovely medieval town full of charms and amazing gastronomy,
but its dimensions are pretty small and we must admit it is a provincial town that enjoys tranquility far from the frenzy of chic and trendy capitals. Although you might be surprised to find within the walls of the ancient town, the foundation of Miss Helga de Alvear. This German lady who became one of the most important art collectors and art dealers of the XXth century. Considered one of the largest collections of international contemporary art, the most important in Spain and one of the most relevant in Europe, the museum has artists such as Louise Bourgeois, Aï Wei Wei, Olafur Eliasson, Kandinsky or Picasso. All those names and pieces that make the most cosmopolitan cities jealous are part of the incredible collection of Helga de Alvear which reflects her passion for the state of the art in our present days.
Solo Houses … the dream come true of a French and Spanish couple.
Christian Bourdais and Eva Albarran represent the meeting of two worlds that you might think are opposites. The developer and the art producer have, however, come together to create a fine blend of architecture, art and real estate. Against the 100-hectare natural backdrop of the majestic “Los Puertos de Beceite” natural park of the Matarraña region, Solo Houses is a skillful blend of architecture, works of art and landscaped paths designed especially for the site. Standing as the first collection of architecture in Europe, Solo Houses invites holidaymakers and visitors to take on an immersive artistic and architecture journey.
