How to get here

The autonomous region of Extremadura is divided into two provinces; the province of Cáceres in the north and the province of Badajoz in the south. Extremadura is in the middle/southwest of Spain, roughly on a line from Madrid to Lisbon. Extremadura can be reached in various ways.

The easiest way is to fly to Madrid, where you can rent a car and drive south-westwards via the A5 (motorway Madrid-Badajoz) to Extremadura. The distance from Madrid to Jaraicejo is about 230 kilometres and because of the light traffic this will take you on average two and a half hours.

If you come by car from U.K., Belgium or France, then reckon with a distance of approximately 1300 - 1800 kilometres, which may take you two full days of driving.
This route runs via Paris - Bordeaux - Burgos - Madrid - Jaraicejo or, 
Paris - Bordeaux - Burgos - Valladolid - Salamanca - Plasencia - Jaraicejo.
