Perfect family holiday

5 of 5
Our extended family gathered at Casa Miro in July 2012 from the UK, Ireland, and the US--we couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. The descriptions were accurate, the house was immaculately clean and well kept, very modern, and comfortable for all of us, from the children to the grandparents. The owners were very friendly and helpful. . It is only about an hour's drive from Barcelona, and lovely drives into the Pyrenees as well. But if you just want to relax you could easily amuse yourself for the entire visit just at the house and enjoying walks around the area and in the nearby village (Gironella). Would definitely recommend this place, with no hesitations!

Excellent

5 of 5
A great place. Pool is chlorine free, naturally filtered and spotless. Half of the pool is knee deep so toddler friendly. other half deep enough for a jump in at around 2m at deepest point. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms nice. Outside eating area excellent - spacious and shaded. Note this place is remote - 25min drive on many hairpins down the mountain to nearest town.
