Wonderful relaxing holiday off the beaten track

  • 4 of 5

The property is well positioned looking out on almond groves and distant mountains. At night the clear skies provided spectacular views of the milky way and thousands of stars. The villa has four decent sized double bedrooms and a large kitchen/dining/lounge area. The swimming pool is also a good size and there is a covered area to escape to when the sun becomes too hot. The nearby towns of Calaceite and Valderrobres are well worth a visit, as is the city of Zaragoza. Another highlight is the vulture observation centre at Mas de Bunol near Valderrobres.

On the down side, and the only reasons for not giving 5 stars are - when we arrived we had a wait of 1½ hours to be let into the property, only to find there was a hidden key; the kitchen lacked good equipment, we had to buy wineglasses and a bbq, and we could not get the oven to work; and there needs to be more basic information for visitors on local attractions, nearest supermarkets, and where to dispose of rubbish.

But as said this is a superb location and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

A fantastic holiday in rural Spain.

  • 4 of 5

The isolated location and self sufficient nature of this property may not be to everyone's taste. However this house and location suited us down to the ground. The house is big and airy with plenty of towels and linen. The pool is great and the children spent most of the holiday jumping and splashing in and out of it. We loved exploring the nearby villages and walking at El Parrizal. We would definitely come back.

Poorly equipped

  • 3 of 5

The house is poorly equipped, and does not benefit from any air, There are no ceiing fans, not enough sheets or towels. The solar panels do not meet the demands of a large household.
