The perfect place for a peaceful holiday away from the busy costas but within easy reach of lovely beaches. Our light and airy cottage has an open plan living space with a kitchen area, dining table and chairs and a sofa bed. The double bedroom with luxury mattresses and pillows for a great night's sleep, opens out onto a tranquil, flower filled, traditional courtyard and you can lie in bed and gaze at the pool and views beyond. There is another bedroom with twin beds, (new, luxury mattresses) which can be pushed together into a double. The large, sparkly blue and white bathroom has loo, basin and shower. Outside you have a private and very pretty BBQ and eating area and endless space to roam throughout the many acres of garden. This is such a special place, not only in the summer, but spring offers fantastic walking and wild flowers and autumn wild mushrooms, cycling, fishing (yes, the mighty river Ebro is 5 mins up the road) sightseeing and of course relaxing. Eat fabulous local food and enjoy fresh eggs from the caretaker's chickens and just lie beside the stunning swimming pool (May-Nov) with a good book (may 1st-end sept and you may be sharing with family in the main house). There is a shared games room with pool table for your further amusement. You won't want to leave but if you do there is plenty to do!
As most of you will arrive on Saturday we are very happy to do a shop for you if you want to - just send us a list.
After renovations and up-grades throughout, we are renting our own house next door for some weeks of the year. If you wish to rent the 2 together (or just want a nose at some more photos) please see Casa Pio, property number 453567. Please bear in mind that the pool and games room may be shared with other paying guests or family sometimes.
A little further up the mountain track (5 minutes drive) is a yoga retreat, and if you wish to start your day at this fantastic place our guests are welcome to join in the morning yoga sessions. Massage is also offered at this relaxing oasis.
I cannot stress how lovely this area is in the spring and the autumn........warm, blue skies perfect for walking and exploring the surroundings. In April and may it is green and beautiful with abundant wildflowers, birds, wild asparagus and the beaches are empty. In September, October and often into November we have a second spring where the green returns and everything comes back to life after the intense summer heat. The end of October brings with it cool misty mornings (great for the wild fungi) mostly giving way to warm sunny days. Of course without rain none of this could be and I would be lying if I said there was no rain, but invariably it doesn’t last long and blue skies are never far away. There is a wood burning stove to keep you toasty and warm if the evenings are cooler.
Our lovely swimming pool is unheated and therefore only suitable for use between 1st May and the end of September.
