Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful stay. Ariane and Rainer made us feel so at home and welcome. Our week there was the perfect break from the hustle and bustle of London. Recommendations given of restaurants, vineyards, beaches (the list is endless) could not have been better and were exactly what we wanted each time. Our personal favorite was Cal Lluis (we visited twice). We will definitively visiting again. We can t wait! Many thanks, Gabriela and Oli

A great apartment and wonderful hosts.

  • 4 of 5

A perfect location for exploring the Penedes wine region, Barcelona and Tarragona. Apartment was great, well equipped and had a nice cosy feel - perfect for kicking back with a bottle of local wine.

Rainer and Ariane were lovely hosts, they have great local knowledge and suggested some fab days out. They also know all the local bodegas and restaurants so don't forget to pick their brains - Casa Xamos is an absolute must.

Rainer and Ariane, thanks again for a wonderful stay.

Beautiful retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Arianel.la B&B is a very pleasant place to stay, with very friendly and thoughtful owners.

The appartment we occupied is very well situated with a good view over the counrtry side. It is nicely decorated with great attention to details, spacious enough for two people, clean, well equiped, really confortable. Rainer and Ariane did all they could to make our stay pleasurable. We did not used the pool or the jacuzi because the weather was not so good (!) but with all the recommandations and suggestions Rainer gave us, we have been able to tour the region, the vineyards and visit many places. Of course all this involved wine and cava testings!

Return guest - fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I visited last year with a group of girls and had a fabulous time. This year I with my husband and two other couples - who were also celebrating wedding anniversaries in May! (This husbands were jealous of last years trip!!)

This trip was just as great. Ariane and Rainer are so welcoming, it was like visiting old friends! Again, prior to the trip Ariane had been amazing on the email organising bike tours, taxi's and meals etc for us - thank you.

We had three nights at Arianel. The accommodation is has a rural charm, very clean and homely feel.

The outside area is a nice place to socialise, there are comfy chairs, relaxing music and the long table for meals. The jacuzzi has a great view!

The food is outstanding. Ana the cook made three tasty evening meals, which was enjoyed by us all. Breakfast is special, so tasty and varied - much enjoyed by everyone. Also, the food is local.

The honesty bar is really well stocked with local wines and also non-alcoholic drinks and snacks.

We spent one day biking to a vineyard and then to a local restaurant for a great meal and lots of excellent wine. After this day, we relaxed around the pool and enjoyed the sunshine. As it was Monday, and many of the local shops/restaurants are shut, Ariane offered us some soup, break, cheese and meats, followed by a lovely lemon dessert. This kind thought was much appreciated, as we were feeling too lazy to venture out to find somewhere to eat!!

Ariane and Rainer are so helpful and accomodating. They are there are hand to advise about the local area and places to visit. During our stay, I saw both of them, spending time withother groups of people advising on directions, places to visit, walk and eat.

I cannot recommend this place more. I love visiting, and plan to visit again next year. It really is a hidden gem.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

I can´t think of the right reason why this was the fifth time we were back with Ariana and Rainer:

Is it just being around them basking in their hospitality.

Or because of the personally styled rooms with their attention to detail.

Or, the beautiful area with vineyards, restaurants, villages markets, being near Barcelona and the Med.

Or, going back, on a regular basis to see how both of their sons are growing up.

Or of course the sweet little dog.

Or a combination of all of the above.

Whatever it is it seems to work and it´s different and more intense every time. Even though we´ve seen some of the sites there´s still so much more. This definitely won´t be the last time!
