About Jean Quintrell

Retired to rural Spain to share a house with my sister and our dogs.

Jean Quintrell purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Jean Quintrell chose La Galera

Lovely rural setting near village of La Galera and within about 20mins of both coast and mountains on good roads. Easy access to house from trunk road.

Good train services to Barcelona and Valencia from Tortosa or L'Aldea (20 mins away).

Exclusive use of the pool for the length of your stay - there are no other holiday units on the property. The pool is oval and measures 10 metres by 3 metres.

What makes this apartment unique

Peace and quiet and open spaces. About an acre of level land around the house.

The immediate area is full of olive groves and mandarin, orange and peach orchards.

On signposted walking/cycling route. We have two bicycles available for visitors to use and additional or electrically powered cycles can be hired from a cycle shop in the next town.

Home grown vegetables and fruit as available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The accommodation was as expected (even better), fantastic quality and very comfortable with everything we needed and more. Thank you for being so hospitable, welcoming, kind and informative.

Very Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It can be lovely here in spring or autumn, with more comfortable temperatures than in full summer (July/August) for getting out and about - maybe next time?

Great host

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to see you and the dogs enjoying themselves and to be able to be of help, especially as we have dogs ourselves (the vet was our usual vet).

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

entorno muy tranquilo, casa acogedora y propietarias muy amables

  • 4 of 5

Lo más destacado después de haver estado dos días en la casa Pau, és la tranquilidad y la paz que se respira. Muy,muy aconsejable. Hemos estado en invierno, hemos podido hacer barbacoas, pasear, disfrutar de la tranquilidad. Las propietarias son muy amables.

La casa es sencilla, pero con todo lo necesario.

Entorno ideal para desconectar

  • 5 of 5

Pasamos un muy buen fin de semana con mi família. La casa está bien equipada y el entorno es perfecto para desconectar del estrés diario de la ciudad. Las dueñas son muy agradables y siempre estuvieron pendientes de nosotros. Aunque se alojan en el edificio contiguo, tuvimos privacidad en todo momento. Muchas gracias por todo Jean y Julie!
