What a brilliant find this flat was! We had a great time. A quiet, comfortable place to relax after a day exploring Aragon. For a stay in a not too well-travelled area of Spain it was perfect.
A well set-out flat with plenty of space and all the amenities you need– a well-equipped new kitchen, Wi-fi, a big tele, a good bathroom with an excellent shower, a washing machine. There was even a roof terrace to sit on and watch the sun go down whilst enjoying a glass of cava! Everything was clean and well maintained and there was a washing machine too. A table tennis table in the entrance hall, which we couldn’t walk past without playing a game!
Alcaniz is a pretty and friendly town with a good selection of bars, restaurants (Bodega and the Cafeteria were two of our favourites), shops and supermarkets. You can sit in the old square, sipping a beer and enjoy watching the storks sitting on top of the cathedral and making their ‘tocking’ noise.
Nearby is the Embalse de Estanca, a lake which has a small and pleasant beach, quiet and with a nice café/restaurant alongside – perfect for a swim and relax. Canoes and pedaloes can be hired there too.
It doesn’t take long to drive to other villages to enjoy the fabulous buildings and views. Fresneda, Calaceite, Valderobles and Moreno (near a decent set of caves) were all beautiful and the bigger (Valancian) walled town of Morella, just a half hour down the road, had a spectacular castle and church.
"This was our first trip to this area of Spain and our first experience with Homelidays and we have to say that it was wonderful. Merce and Ricard took very good care of us and were very accommodating. Their house is beautiful and perfectly situated in the old town of Calaceite. The view from the top floor is stunning. The nights were very quite and we were able to enjoy ourselves and relax. Overall this was a very pleasant experience."
