Nick Levitsky – April 2018

Stunning views, beautiful sunrises & sunsets, crystal clear night sky, amazing accommodation, great activities (kayaking , rock climbing, horse riding, milking a goat(!), making cheese and bread). Not forgetting Lola the dog who escorted my daughter and I on long rambles around the countryside.

Brendan O – March 2018

Our hosts, Illaria and Des, made our holiday incredibly memorable with their welcome advice, planning, home made food and their fantastic hotel. We swam, kayaked, rode horses, rafted down rivers and went for hikes through the superb national parks in the area. The “Lake District” of Spain lived up to its reputation and we found swimming in the man-made reservoirs was a great experience.

We loved the rafting trip. My 7 year old was buzzing from the excitement of jumping off rocks into the river and rafting down the small white water sections. The farm visit was excellent too with Des and Ilaria’s eldest son, Ludo, providing the translation for everything from the goat milking and horse riding to cheese and bread making.

Alexandra Haxton – August 2017

Brilliant we loved it! I felt relaxed as soon as we arrived. The scenery, the setting, the other guests, the ambience – all were fantastic. Des and Ilaria were the perfect hosts and were so helpful with planning, booking and ideas for what to do. Thank you for such a fantastic holiday!

Fiona Miller – August 2017

We loved all of it really! For Peter (14) and Mum – the rafting activity. Lovely people with a great sense of humour and concern for safety of the smallest members of the group ran it. For Dad – the National Park walks and swims. The hotel was lovely – Des and Elaria’s warmth and enthusiasm set the tone. They seem to have accumulated a great set of people who run the activities that they recommend. The community atmosphere at the hotel was superb creating a great environment for friendships among adults and children alike. We came home with a new card game… books to read… and lovely memories of the other guests as well as the place.

Fantastic. We loved the hotel, the pool was such a welcome relief after a hot day out. We loved: eating out on the patio (including varied vegetarian meals), the honesty fridge for drinks, help and advice from owners Des and Ilaria, the local town Castril and its lovely suspended river walk and fantastic swimming pool with shady woodland area. So much to see, yet our holiday was also very relaxing. We loved it all!
