About the property

House in Camarasa, Lleida, Spanish Pyrenees, Spain - Ideal For Families And Large Groups

Embedded in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, Ca la Daina is a beautiful and lovingly restored 16th house over 5 floors with beams and log fires, cosy, but also spacious, sleeping up to 14 people. Fabulous views overlooking gorges and mountains. Ideal for 2 or 3 families or groups of friends. Our home is situated in the quiet and unspoiled medieval village of Camarasa, Catalan people are very welcoming and they go out of there way to help and offer advice and there is a lovely friendly atmosphere. Take your time to stop and chat. There are two bars and a fabulous bakery which sell croissants to die for! There is a well stocked village store and supermarkets are only 10 minutes away in the small town of Balaguer. Every Saturday there is a market in the main plaza of Balaguer worth visiting for cheeses and vegetables and a coffee at Gloria’s, our favourite cafe in town... "A place to be and rejuvenate will definitely return we loved it"

About David Dixon

We live in Oxford and we and our family come out to Ca la Daina several times a year, often with lots of friends in tow.

Our children are now older and have started to come here with their friends using public transport, which is a big plus.

David Dixon purchased this house in 2007

Why David Dixon chose Noguera

We have loved to visit Spain over the years and have friends in Catalunya and in Madrid. After a while we realised we and our family could spend much more time here if we could buy a place of our own. We looked all around Catalunya (almost all of which is beautiful!) and chose Camarasa.

We couldn't believe what we found in Lleida province - lakes, mountains, ruined castles and churches, medieval villages - and none of it visited by tourists (even from the rest of Spain!).

It is just over an hour from the airports and from Barcelona. accessible by public transport (up to the last 6km) and in the middle of unspoilt dramatic scenery.

What makes this house unique

Caladaina is now our family hideaway and we love the view of the river and gorge from the terrace, swimming in the lake, mountain biking and walking in the mountains around the house, log fires in the winter and the fact we can have lots of family and friends to stay with us.

We've done quite a bit of work on the house since we bought it and it is now fully equipped for both winter and summer.
