Accomodations had everything we needed...even a stovetop coffee maker I used every day. Anna was very helpful and welcoming. Location was perfect: just a few minutes to historic old church, centre of town and supermarket. Balsareny's central location worked out well as it is just was 20-60 minutes from sites to see: Barcelona, Montserrat, Manressa. Bus and train schedules accurate and trustworthy. It was hard to leave Balsareny. Would recommend this lodging and would stay again.

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!
