A fantastic hillside retreat
A beautiful house in a beautiful location to get away from it all. Two lovely gentle dogs as well, and the freshwater pool is a delight. Sit back and watch the vultures and other wildlife. We'll be back again.
Very nice accomodation with superb views over the valley
The house has all necessary facilities and is clearly well maintained. The garden, pool and mountain views are great.
As highlighted in the info piece, the road towards the stay is indeed... interesting. It is about 3km uphill off-road (15mins from Organya), but doable; it may seem strange the first time round. The local house keeper who maintains the area, fields and goats is very friendly; but do note he is around on the property almost every day, doing work in the neighbouring field. It was also a bit bizarre that the grass fields are automatically irrigated every evening, so difficult to relax outside when the sun goes down (or you need to disconnect the timer).
Overall a top facility. Also the entire area is very nice, and surprisingly not yet discovered by many foreign tourists.
Excellent property. Well equipped and clean.
A very relaxing get away from it all type of holiday. The journey from the town up to the property was far from easy but once there a beautiful part of the world with stunning views. Lots of beautiful places to visit.
Amazing family stay with views that go on forever!
We are a family of three. We stayed for two weeks in April. We love the house, the location and the area. Very rural and peaceful. Organya is a great little town just down from the house and very close to a beautiful national park and an equally beautiful natural park. The local managers were very helpful and attentive. We love Cal Peguera and highly recommend! We will be coming back.

A fantastic spacious home with stunning view.
Stayed a week in mid september. We had quite high expectations but the property topped them all. The place i beautiful an wery relaxing, its hard to find a better view on a hillside. Everything is built as a personal summer home with high standard. No typical rental home cheap stuff. The kitchen is very good, with big gas/electric stowe, nice plates, wine glasses etc. Nice separate bathroom with washer. Big living room with huge fireplace. We did not use it as the weather was nice and for two persons the two upper stairs are more than enough. The natural pool is gorgeous, and the water naturally as soft as a lake, but if you are afraid of the tiny frog babies that help cleaning the pool, you are not gonna swim.
Don't come here with a sports car the road upp from the village is a steap dirt road in not the best condition. Heavy rain will quickly make it worse. You can manage it with a normal car. People are very nice especially Yolanda who gave us the key and the man (sorry forgot his name) that took us app to the palace.They did not speak english but that was no problem. And also Brot, the kindest watch dog i´we ever met, very well schooled. He lives outside, never comes inside. He only comes to check you when you arrive with car back to the property and sometimes puts he's nose trough the kitchen door in the morning.
Stunning property with beautiful views all round
The property is in a fantastic location, high up on the mountainside, with stunning views all round - it's a 20 minute or so drive up a steep track from Organya, but worth it. The property itself is recently renovated and as good as the photos suggest - and we loved the natural swimming pool.
Special interest holidays:
- the area is great for walking
- all adventure activities can be booked locally in Organyà and La Seu d´Urgell. These include canyoning, rafting, trekking, quads, horse-riding, rock climbing, mountain biking etc

There is a lake for swimming nearby and there are different rivers with beautiful natural pools.
A car is essential for travel in this area. Distances from the following airports to Cal Peguera as follows:

Reus 150 km / 2 hours.
Girona 200 km / 2 hours 20 mins.

Cal Peguera has a secluded situation. The nearest village with shops, bars, etc is Organyà at 4 km. The road up to Cal Pequera is mostly asphalted and you pass 3 other small villages with no amenities. The last part (about 3 km.) is over a well maintained track.
The surrounding countryside has a rich diversity of birds and birds of prey, wild flowers and butterflies. In the evening you will be amazed by the breathtaking starry skies. There are plenty of opportunities for everyone for a great holiday: there is no mass tourism, it is a welcoming and quiet area, of interest related to gastronomy, geology and architecture. A place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife, but it is also a place that tempts you to practice sports and have adventures.
The people are friendly, helpful and welcoming.
Eating out in the region is very reasonably priced; a 3 course meal of local specialties including wine and coffee costs around € 10,-.
