a Paradis

  • 5 of 5

Our family of total 5 enjoyed this remote & rural site a lot. The 3 kids were 10, 15 and 17 years old and enjoyed the pool but also the hiking and biking in the area.

The Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is not a real must...so many other things are more interesting and closer by.

For instance, the castle of Lladurs, the falconry zoo del pirineu and nearby national parks and viewpoints are a real must.

Bring your climbing equipment, beautiful sites are nearby.

The second apartment was separated, in the same house, and our friends stayed there during the same 2 weeks. An ideal get-together.

What would we do different? The biking rental in Solsona was difficult - and 7 flat tires for 7 bikes in a week was too much. Bring your own bike or go hiking ;-)

What would we redo? All advice given by Fina i Joan were to the point and useful for our situation.

Other highlights; The canyon of Mont Rebei. Take the north entrance and bring teenagers with swimsuits along!

We rarely go back to the same vacation location - but we will make an exception for this paradis!

Thank you Fina, Joan i Joachim for the hospitality.

Superb geography and wildlife. Great for hiking.

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for a week in September. In addition to taking full advantage of the lovely pool and other facilities we were able to investigate the promising local hiking possibilities. With the help of our very knowledgeable hosts Joan and Fina, who provided us with excellent maps and detailed advice, we were able to experience the stunning geography and wildlife of the area. After a day in the hills it was great to come back to the comfort and tranquillity of Vilanova. For a meal out we enjoyed local fare at the nearby restaurant 'Cap del Pla'. Your hosts will gladly phone to book you a table. The historic city of Solsona is just a short drive away and we spent most of a day exploring the nicely restored buildings dating back to the middle ages. There are also modern shops, a supermarket and very nice restaurants and cafes. For us the most notable thing about our stay at Vilanova d'Isanta was the hospitality of Joan and Fina. We will definitely return.

Fantastische vakantie in een heerlijke omgeving

  • 5 of 5

We hebben hier twee heerlijke weken doorgebracht. De omgeving is schitterend, het weer was mooi. Het appartement zelf is echt perfect; ruim, met alles wat je nodig hebt (elke slaapkamer zelfs een eigen badkamer). Erg lekker om een zwembad voor de deur te hebben, en je eigen BBQ plaats. En de gastvrijheid van Joan en Fina kent bijna geen grenzen.

In de omgeving zijn mooie wandelingen te maken. Joan gaf heel goede suggesties. Een trip naar Montserrat is de moeite waard (erg toeristisch, maar toch erg leuk). En Barcelona is ook best goed te doen vanaf hier (en dan vertelt Joan je wel waar je het best kan parkeren, weet leuke restaurants, en vertelt je hoe je aan kaarten voor de Sagrada Familia komt zonder in de rij te hoeven staan).

We komen hier zeker terug :-)

Fabulous Place in the Pre-Pyrenees

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (children 4 & 6) spent two weeks at Joan and Fina's fabulous place near Solsona. Situated in the hills it is a wonderful house and the owner's couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. The apartment was very comfortable and we had a very relaxing fortnight swimming in the pool, eating on the terrace and exploring the surrounding area. It was the perfect place to unwind in an unspoilt and genuine part of Spain. For sure, we will return.

Magnífica estada a Vilanova D'Isanta

  • 5 of 5

Ens agrada molt fer estades familiars a cases rurals de Catalunya. A Vilanova d'Isanta era la primera vegada que veniem i repetirem.

L'estada ha estat magnífica. Ens han acollit i tractat molt bé. La dedicació tan de la Fina i el Joan ha estat exel•lent! És d'agraír trobar uns massovers com vosaltres. La casa, ubicació i activitats a fer són moltes i molt adients.

També vem tenir la sort de conèixer el Quim... Un crack!

Marc, Martina, Uri, Glòria i Oriol!

Moltes gràcies per tot i fins la propera

Fijn vakantiehuisje in prachtige omgeving

  • 5 of 5

We hadden een hele fijne week in het vakantiehuisje bij Joan en Fina. Het huisje is superrustig gelegen, was heel erg proper en alles was piekfijn in orde. Fina en Joan zijn heel vriendelijke en gastvrije mensen. Joan spreekt perfect Engels waardoor de communicatie zeer vlot verliep. Hij gaf ons op vraag allerlei tips over wat we in de omgeving konden bezoeken en ondernemen. En last but not least : we kregen zomaar lekkere zelfgekweekte groenten uit hun grote moestuin. Een echte aanrader voor wie van een rustige omgeving houdt!
