un séjour idyllique

  • 5 of 5

une maison au charme fou, doté de tout le confort moderne et d'une propreté impeccable. Belle terrasse, petit jardin, vue splendide et un goût d'authenticité inoubliable.

Le village est charmant, authentique et superbe. Très bien situé (proche d'une voie rapide qui permet de circuler au travers de toute la Catalogne). Nous avons ainsi pu alterner visites (Montserrat, Poblet, Solsona etc) avec journées de farniente dans cette superbe demeure.

Définitivement à recommander pour qui veut découvrir la Catalogne.

Le propriétaire est très sympathique et de bon conseil. Nous sommes décidés à revenir dans ce gite!

  • 5 of 5

"Une superbe maison rénovée avec amour et grand soin par son propriétaire qui su allier la beauté d'un vieux bâtiment et de beaux meubles au confort (salles d'eau, appareils ménagers....).La maison se trouve dans un beau petit village médieval. Tout ceci était bien conforme à la description de la location et c'était même mieux que sur le site internet. Depuis la belle terrasse de la maison on a vue sur un de ces bâtiments; heureusement pour nous.

Cette location est très bien si l'on veut rester à la maison ou au contraire si l'on est prêt à prendre sa voiture et faire beaucoup de kms pour aller sur la côte ou dans les Pyrénées."

  • 5 of 5

"un endroit magnifique où l'on se sent transporté dans les temps anciens. La demeure est très bien restaurée, spacieuse et possède un joli jardin de trèfles. En outre le propriétaire vous accueille en vous faisant visiter la maison avec passion, il vous recoit en invités avec de petites attentions qui touchent. La légende raconte que la forteresse n'a jamais été conquise et que des souterrains ont permis aux habitants de survivre aux sièges... on y croit après avoir vu la taille des réservoirs d'eau. En bref AUTHENTIQUE et très calme"
