The property is situated in a rural area, its very peaceful. The nearby village is just a 10 min walk. The property was very clean, Jean and Julie, the owners, live next door and always were very helpful. We think this place is ideal for a relaxed getaway, though hot in the summer its not as hot as further south. We all enjoyed the pool, included our small dog. We explored the nearest coastal towns such as San Carlos de La Rapita, and places like the river Ebro's Delta, where it meets the sea, the nice rice plantations and beaches there are worth seeing, also there is a beautiful lake/dam in the nearby mountains. This is one of the few places we have stayed at that we definitely would want to visit again if we wanted to truly relax and for the natural beauty around.
Jean and Julie were very hospitable. We were staying with two dogs who were welcome to use the pool which made their stay fun.
One of our dog was sick and Julie/Jean helped us to find a local traveling vet and helped with the translation. They were very good with us and our dogs. We would strongly recommend the Casa Pau.

Very enjoyable stay
Very clean, comfortable, roomy accommodation in a tranquil, rural location yet within easy reach easy of the coastal motorway.
The two friendly, helpful lady owners, Jean and Julie, who live next door were keen to help make our stay a very enjoyable one. They were willing to share their knowledge of the multitude of local summer fiestas and other events, activities, best restaurants, etc. What they didn't know they were willing and able to find out. When we preferred to do our own thing they were happy to respect our privacy.
The view of the night sky from the grounds was amazing! In fact it was so good I wrote a report about it which Jean and Julie kindly placed on their web site.
Casa Pau is highly recommended.
