Peacefull retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and peaceful place. And what a great host, both Chris and Pepe. We felt very welcome and at home. The property is incredible. Love the dogs. And the pool, the sunset, the hills, and so quiet. We stayed for a week and we felt rejuvenated. The surrounding area, villages are worth a visit. Segorbe, has great restaurants. And you are less than 45 minutes away from Valencia. We also liked the fact that the guest are only adults, no children. Beds are comfortable and each room has its own kitchen. Beautifully restored farmhouse. We would like to come back someday.

Un endroit magnifique au coeur de la nature

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé en famille un très joli séjour à Masia de Matuta qui est un endroit très préservé et très calme au coeur de la nature. Les vues sont absolument incroyables et la piscine assez grande pour rafraîchir les enfants qui peuvent aussi faire un tour à cheval avec Pepe ou nourrir les animaux. Cristina (qui parle français) vous accueillera gentiment et vous racontera l'histoire de la maison dont elle a complètement refait la decoration avec goût et vous proposera peut-être de partager avec les autres hôtes une paella traditionelle de la région. Une adresse intimiste (il n'y aura jamais trop de monde) que nous recommandons sans hésitation!

ro, skønhed og sol

  • 5 of 5

Vi var en familie på 4 voksne afsted. Vi nød den fantastiske natur, det smukke landsted, poolen og udsigten. Chris elsker at fortælle om stedet, der har sjæl og historie. Pastor ( den unge hund) der kom og modtog også når vi kommer hjem fra vores udflugter, og fulgte os fra parkeringspladsen og hen til døren om aftenen og Maya ( den gamle hun) der lå og snorkede beroligende det meste af dagen.

Knap en time til Valencia og til stranden, hvis man vil det. I den nærliggende by Segorbe er der hyggeligt med marked og fine restauranter.

Eneste lille minus er den manglende aircondition, men det er jo svært når man selv laver sin strøm.

Vi kan varmt anbefale Masia de Matuta - det er terapi for sjælen.

Paradis

  • 5 of 5

Havde den skønneste familieferie. Vi var tre generationer afsted og alle elskede det. Huset ligger isoleret i den mest fantastiske natur. Vi badede ved den dejlige pool, red på heste, var på hestevognstur til lille landsby og lavede mad i det udendørs fælles køkken (nogle dage hentede vi mad på en restaurant ca. 15 minutters kørsel fra stedet). Nærmeste supermarked er i Segorbe ca 20 min væk). Et enestående og unik sted, som vi MEGET gerne vil tilbage til.

Erholung und die Ruhe geniessen

  • 5 of 5

Verbrachten 3 Wochen auf dem Landsitz Masia de Matuta im Naturschutzgebiet Sierra de Espadan. Eine schön eingerichtete Suite für zwei Personen mit eigener Küche stand uns zur Verfügung. Konnten uns selber verpflegen und das Essen auf den vielen Sitzecken im Freien einnehmen, am Abend die schönen Sonnenuntergänge beobachten. In den Gemeinschaftsräumen fühlt man sich sehr wohl. Der überlaufende Pool und die Hängematte im Aussichtsturm haben wir rege benutzt. Die Hunde, Pferde, Wildschweine, Hühner und die Fische im eigenen kleinen Stausee sind auch noch da und sorgen für etwas L,eben in dieser ruhigen Oase. Konnten viele schöne Fotos machen. Ein Ausflug an den Wasserfall Navajas ist empfehlenswert, Segorbe, Teruel und Sagunt sind auch sehr schön.

Man kann gar nicht alles beschreiben was man auf diesem schönen Landsitz so alles erleben kann.

Das Wandern mit Cristina im Naturschutzpark haben wir sehr genossen.

Danke für die herzliche Gastfreundschaft Cristina und Pepe, dank euch konnten wir so schöne Ferien erleben.

Perfecte locatie, heerlijke rust.

  • 5 of 5

In Masia de Matuta heb je een heerlijke vakantie als je van rust houdt. Je kunt er naar hartelust wandelen in de bergen, uitstapjes maken met de auto, paardrijden, of lekker in stilte bij het zwembad een boek lezen. Het is werkelijk een prachtig gebouw dat geheel is gerestaureerd met in de centrale hal een aantal antieke koetsen, verder een enorme haard en een bibliotheek. De villa ligt enkele kilometers (onverharde weg) van de bewoonde wereld en je hoort er alleen de krekels tjirpen.

De bijzonder gastvrije -Duits sprekende- eigenaresse verhuurt een aantal luxe kamers. Vrijwel nooit zijn alle kamers tegelijk verhuurd. Dat doet ze bewust om er voor te zorgen dat mensen kunnen genieten van de rust. Bijna alle kamers hebben een keukentje. Heel handig omdat je niet direct bij winkels in de buurt zit, dus kun je zelf boodschappen doen en koken als je dat wilt. Wij vonden het heel fijn dat we niet elke dag op pad hoefden om ergens in een restaurant te gaan eten (scheelt ook in de kosten, we blijven Nederlanders he ;).

Er is ook de mogelijkheid om te barbecueën en als je een koel drankje wilt gebruiken bij het zwembad, kun je dat zelf pakken tegen een kleine vergoeding.

De masia is geheel zelfvoorzienend: stroom komt uit zonne-energie, water uit de bergen (is drinkwater, dus geen flessen nodig) en internet via de satelliet waardoor in het hele huis gratis wifi is.

Natuurlijk moet de manege worden genoemd, deze maakt een belangrijk deel uit van de masia. Er bestaat de mogelijkheid tot paardrijden of paardrijlessen nemen. Ook wordt een toch door de bergen met een paardenkoets aangeboden. Wij raden dit zeker aan omdat je op deze manier de bergen anders ziet en beleeft dan vanuit de auto. Verder zijn er nog meer dieren op het terrein, zoals reeën, zwijntjes, honden en duiven. Gezellig ;)

Ik kan eigenlijk niets negatiefs bedenken, het was echt een mooie en luxe vakantie. De masia leek naar ons idee op een combinatie van een ranch en een Agriturismo zoals je ze in Italië veel ziet. Voor Spanje is dit vrij uniek, althans wij vonden er merendeels hotels aan zee en weinig mogelijkheden voor een vakantie in het binnenland.

Ps. In de tweede week van september is in de dichtstbijzijnde stad Segorbe een groot feest met stierenrennen. Aanrader!
