The valley is also renowned for its cherry blossom which blooms during spring.  Across the Jerte valley, on the slopes and terraces, the landscape is transformed into a blanket of white and with over two million trees in bloom makes a truly beautiful sight. Dependent on weather conditions, this unique scene normally occurs in the last week of March, lasting between 12-14 days. During this time, to celebrate the blossoming of the trees, the Jerte Valley Cherry Blossom festival, declared of National Tourist Interest, takes place. The produce, the Picota cherry, is native to the area and has been cultivated here since the 17th century. Found in stores during July and August it is said that these are the best cherries in Spain, slightly smaller in size with no tail, yet sweeter, crunchier and a darker red than others. From May to June it is possible to join local farmers in the harvesting of the cherries which is carried out by hand; alternatively visitors to the area can visit the Cherry Museum which is located 10 minutes from the Hospederia Valle de Jerte.

Nearby places not to be missed include Garganta de los Infiernos, a protected natural reserve with spectacular rock formations (Los Pilones) which have been created by water erosion; the 4km circular route to the river mouth of Garganta de las Nogaledas with its waterfalls surrounded by walnut trees; the waterfall of Caozo; the natural pools of the valley which provide refreshing swimming areas during the height of summer; the five ancient Temblar chestnut trees and not forgetting the fantastic viewpoints around the region of Valle del Jerte such as the Mirador de la Memoria (El Torno), Puerto de Tornavacas and the viewpoint of the Port of Honduras.

Alison joined the Sunvil team in 2019 but has long been an extended member of our family, having sold our holidays as a travel agent for 25 years! Sunvil is more than a business, our approach to travel - introducing visitor to lesser-known places and placing them among the locals, is a concept that our staff buy into and feel passionate about. Our holidays are those that we ourselves enjoy and would recommend for our friends and family. Alison is no exception having chosen a Sunvil trip to the Azores for her honeymoon and having recently returned from Veneto.
