Fantastic place

5 of 5
We stayed at this house for the first week of our holidays. The property is very private, with lots of space - perfect for a family with lots of large teenagers! They loved the beautiful pool, and we had lots of fun playing water polo with the football goals at either end. Great view of the mountains from the pool too. The games room with ping pong and table football was also very well used, and we also took the mountain bikes out one evening for a ride down to a nearby lake. The house was well equipped, clean - and also nice and cool. We enjoyed eating outside by the barbeque. It wasn't far to drive to Solsona - much bigger place than I'd thought from the map, with a beautiful church and lots of old streets inside the town wall, and also plenty of supermarkets. The mountains were not too far away and we did some amazing walks up on the Serres des Busa and up near the Port del Comte. All in all, a fantastic place for a holiday!

Fantastic Scenery Stunning Castle

5 of 5
What a stunning place and scenery. Approx 90 mins drive away from Barcelona airport, going through the stunning scenery of Monserrat and 60 mins South from Andorra. We were a family of 13 that stayed in Mid May, catering for 3 generations. The castle itself is massive and you could quite easily find a place to your own within the castle or within the grounds of the castle. 5 bedrooms upstairs 3 bedrooms on the mid floor and 7 bathrooms all working and very clean. Massive medieval dining area within the castle and a must for lots of family photos around the table. Downstairs was a games room where the young ones generally hung out during the night playing pool, table tennis or table football. Outside you have an outdoor kitchen and Barbeque area and again another big table to seat 16. The pool not too far away and again plenty of area to sunbathe although the pool was rather cold in May and only for the brave. Solsona approx. 25 mins drive is where there’s a big reasonably priced supermarket to stock up on food and beer, however if you’ve time to look there is a small food shop that sold good steak at an unbelievably low price (£15 for 16 steaks!!!) Cardona is 25 mins drive away too and well worth a visit boasting it’s own hill top castle and square with lots of little bars and restaurants. The owners speak very little English however the daughter does help when out of school. For those of you that fancy something different and can cope with the solitude this splendid castle boasts, then I would highly recommend it.
