  • History

    Cutamilla appears in the Inventory of Royal Hunting Grounds since 1325 (Hunting Book of Alfonso XI). [Text in Old Castilian]

    "Cutamiella es buen monte de puerco en ivierno, et es la vocería desde el camino que vá de Vaydes á Mandayona por cima de la cumbre catante el río, fasta en par de la casa de Cotamiella. Et son las armadas la una en Sanct Pedro, et la otra en Vianiella, et la mas cierta es esta."

    The Art Nouveau stately house was built in the second half of the nineteenth century by the Duke of Pastrana, along with the private railroad station of the property, which allowed the comfortable visit of distinguished people of the Spanish society, including the Queen Regent Maria Christina of Hapsburg and King Alfonso XII.

    The waters that supply the Stately House and surrounding buildings are classified as Natural Mineral Water for public consumption and was bottled under the brand "Fontemilla" and currently as "Font Vella Sigüenza", the first national brand.
  • OUTDOOR SPACE

    Within its 3,000 acres in Cutamilla we find the typical landscapes of the South of the central plateau in the foothills of the Iberian Mountain Range: Forests, grasslands, prairies and deciduous trees along the course of the river Henares.

    The old countryhouse is located in the central area of the property.

    It is worth highlighting the previously mentioned Stately home, a chapel, a school, a pen of agricultural origin, which has been renovated and is today a meeting space. A chivero (place were second-hand items could be bought and sold) that has been transformed into the most modern kitchen, a seventeenth-century chapel and a dovecote.

    These buildings are situated in the old landscaped garden with its walks with old trees among which are some that have survived until today and date from nineteenth century: mulberry, pine, horse chestnut, acacias, banana, walnut, limes and century-old oak trees, etc.
  • The Garden of Statues

    Opposite the house, a pond and two modernist cast iron statues welcome visitors.

    It is accessed up three flights of stone stairs following a stone stairway that match a pattern of rising platforms leading to the porch to enter the Stately home.
  • The Garden of Pine Trees

    This garden of about 2000m with several old examples of Corsican pine trees is located to the West of the Stately home, opposite the Chapel.
  • The Garden of Pomegranate Trees

    Two beautiful pomegranate trees give name to this garden located East of the Stately home. It is on the path leading to pago del Matorral at the foot of a small, but very comfortable guesthouse. Following this footway along the valley of the Henares, upstream, we arrive to the sources supplying the property.
  • The Prairies

    Crossing the river, opposite the Houses of Cutamilla and its gardens there is an extensive irrigated pasture in which limousin cattle and our Arabian horses graze.

    On certain occasions we use a small part of this grassland as a parking area with a capacity for 300 cars.
  • INDOOR SPACE

    It is an Art Nouveau style building that is accessed from the front porch opposite the Garden of Statues. A juniper tree door gives way to the entrance hall, under the watchful eye of wild boars, roe deers and deers; trophies that have be hunted in Cutamilla for many years.

    Scots pine, juniper tree and marble flooring organise the different rooms. At the back, a wrought iron staircase connects the three floors and wine cellar of the Stately home.

    All the decor and furnishings match the style of the time. The ground floor consists of three halls; 30, 70 and 50m2, all with one, or even two, fireplaces, plus two spacious bathroom and kitchens. One of the halls, the medium-size one, has access to the garden and courtyard with 250 m2 marble floors, which may be fully covered and in which there are two other bathrooms and a wood-fired oven.

  • EVENTS / ACTIVITIES

    The events and activities that take place on the Mount of Cutamilla include weddings and other family or business events. Such events normally take place between the months of May and September although clients increasingly opt for the winter season. Monte de Cutamilla has over a hectare of usable lawn in its different gardens, all of which are illuminated.

    There is also the possibility of combining both interior and outdoor spaces: The halls of the Stately Home (150 m2), the Courtyard (250 m2) and the Barn (500 m2).

    Within the Reserve, there are also natural spaces suitable for meetings, lunches or outdoor cooking classes, to collect mushrooms, berries and vegetables, and sporting events (climbing, hiking, wildlife watching, bird watching, horse-riding with purebred Arabian horses bred on the property, selective hunting of wild boars and roe deers in season).

    Occasionally, we offer the rental of the property for private use when you may enjoy the entire estate exclusively.

    All these activities may be carried out in addition to business activities organised within the property.

    There are also 25 km of roads and trails for private use and 4x4 tours of various difficulties and paved roads for the presentation and testing of vehicles in a private nature reserve with historic buildings and beautiful landscapes.

There are peregrine falcons, goshawks, grey herons and griffon vultures flying in its sky and nesting in the gullies of the Henares valley where the roe deers breed and the wild boars roam. Mustelids also inhabit the rural property such as martens, beech martens, genets and badgers. There are also foxes and occasionally during the cold winter nights it is possible to hear the eerie howl of a wolf.

  • Cooking Experience

    Mount Cutamilla has everything necessary to ensure it is a success and that this new experience fosters teamwork.

    Cooking is a creative activity that when carried out within group and in a relaxed manner it is a great opportunity to do something different and exchange ideas and opinions.

    Cooking with friends and acquaintances is an excellent anti-stress therapy that facilitates teamwork and evokes positive emotions. Also, it allows the team to be able to show its coordination and organisation skills and encourages socialisation and joint effort.

    We design a tailored cooking experience for each company in accordance with the number of people and the time available for the activity.

    Depending on the project design, cooking will take place outdoors, weather permitting, in the kitchen or in a room equipped as a kitchen.

    We offer you a meeting room at the top of a hill, in a cellar, in a stable, in a nineteenth century Stately home or in the middle of an oak forest.
  • The Pantry

    Many of the raw materials of the estate have been produced in the nature reserve itself. Vegetables and fruits from the vegetable garden, hunting (venison loins, wild boar tenderloin...), honey, eggs laid by our chickens, even meat from our calves reared outdoors with the rich pastures of the property: acorns, oak sprouts and grains that are grown here.
     
    We occasionally offer our customers a selected calf. You can join the next selection in the shop section.
  • SHOP

    There are certain products from the estate that maracatering uses in her dishes. Some of them are available in our store.

    We are now offering Cutamilla’s friends meat from our cattle. Each month we slaughter one and you can become a friend by clicking this link to receive information regarding the following date.

    What makes Cutamilla’s meat different to the rest?

    We are frequently asked where it is possible to get meat from our cattle. Let us inform you that with the exception of a single butcher from Sigüenza our sole provider is a company specialised in high-quality products for export.

    The meat of cows and calves from Cutamilla is exported from Spain and can only be enjoyed here in some restaurants in the area.

    As all of those of you who know the property, our cattle are raised outdoors with the rich pastures of the farm, acorns, oak sprouts and grains that are grown here.

    The result is known by some of you: an organic meat with an excellent flavour that is clearly distinct from the meat which, in most cases, comes from massive feedlots.

    Following your suggestions we have decided to slaughter each month one of our cattle to make it available to those who might be interested.

    We offer home delivery of 5 or 10 kg boxes containing wrapped trays weighing approximately 1 kg each with proportional different parts of the animal so that the content of each box is varied.

    The 5kg box is comprised of:
    • 1,5 kg of minced meat
    • 500 g of loin
    • 1 kg of meat for stew
    • 2 kg of fillets of the highest quality
