The houses are located in Paracuellos de la Vega (Cuenca), village of 145 inhabitants of the so-called Zona Manchuela Alta, surrounded by pine forest and work fields. The main economy of the village is based on agriculture, livestock and construction.

We can find the Church of Santiago Apóstol in a square of the village and a church dedicated to the Virgen de la Immaculada Concepción on the outskirts of the village.

There is a Fortress-Castle of the XI century, surrounded by a fertile meadow where the río de la Virgen runs.

We have springs that can be visited and natural landscapes of cliffs, valleys and in short live nature where you can enjoy native flora and fauna.

The town has a sports centre, a frontón wall, a bar, a grocery store and as municipal offices we have a social Center, doctor's office, school and Town Hall.
