Cal Peguera is a lovely, completely restored and very well equipped authentic farmhouse with private pool. Set in 14 hectares of wooded and terraced farmland the house offers complete tranquility, with only the sound of goat bells and birdsong to disturb the silence. It has a secluded situation and the nearest village with good restaurants, nice terraces, a bank and all kinds of shops is Organyà at about 4 km. The property is located at 900 m above sea level in a typically rural area of the Spanish pre-Pyrenees with many paths and tracks for walking, biking, horseback riding and with many lakes and rivers for swimming, fishing and white water sports. Cal Peguera is 35 km away from Andorra and 20 km away from La Seu d'Urgell, town that counts with all services. The town has a beautiful old part called Seu Vella with its medieval streets, lots of activities, fairs, festivals and outdoor market every Tuesday and Saturday. The natural swimming pool with adjoining lawns, the garden with the outdoor kitchen with BBQ, the terrace on the other side of the house, all have stunning views over the valley of the river Segre and the surrounding mountains, and are ideal for relaxing and long summer night meals. Cal Peguera is the place to get away from it all, and you will notice that it is hard to leave this wonderful place. But, there is much more to do like experiencing Spanish live by getting in touch with the friendly local people on the different fiestas and markets, do numerous (sports) activities and day trips, visit medieval picturesque villages, enjoy a drink and some tapas on a sunset terrace, etc.

Very nice accomodation with superb views over the valley
The house has all necessary facilities and is clearly well maintained. The garden, pool and mountain views are great.
As highlighted in the info piece, the road towards the stay is indeed... interesting. It is about 3km uphill off-road (15mins from Organya), but doable; it may seem strange the first time round. The local house keeper who maintains the area, fields and goats is very friendly; but do note he is around on the property almost every day, doing work in the neighbouring field. It was also a bit bizarre that the grass fields are automatically irrigated every evening, so difficult to relax outside when the sun goes down (or you need to disconnect the timer).
Overall a top facility. Also the entire area is very nice, and surprisingly not yet discovered by many foreign tourists.
Excellent property. Well equipped and clean.
A very relaxing get away from it all type of holiday. The journey from the town up to the property was far from easy but once there a beautiful part of the world with stunning views. Lots of beautiful places to visit.
Amazing family stay with views that go on forever!
We are a family of three. We stayed for two weeks in April. We love the house, the location and the area. Very rural and peaceful. Organya is a great little town just down from the house and very close to a beautiful national park and an equally beautiful natural park. The local managers were very helpful and attentive. We love Cal Peguera and highly recommend! We will be coming back.

A fantastic spacious home with stunning view.
Stayed a week in mid september. We had quite high expectations but the property topped them all. The place i beautiful an wery relaxing, its hard to find a better view on a hillside. Everything is built as a personal summer home with high standard. No typical rental home cheap stuff. The kitchen is very good, with big gas/electric stowe, nice plates, wine glasses etc. Nice separate bathroom with washer. Big living room with huge fireplace. We did not use it as the weather was nice and for two persons the two upper stairs are more than enough. The natural pool is gorgeous, and the water naturally as soft as a lake, but if you are afraid of the tiny frog babies that help cleaning the pool, you are not gonna swim.
Don't come here with a sports car the road upp from the village is a steap dirt road in not the best condition. Heavy rain will quickly make it worse. You can manage it with a normal car. People are very nice especially Yolanda who gave us the key and the man (sorry forgot his name) that took us app to the palace.They did not speak english but that was no problem. And also Brot, the kindest watch dog i´we ever met, very well schooled. He lives outside, never comes inside. He only comes to check you when you arrive with car back to the property and sometimes puts he's nose trough the kitchen door in the morning.
Stunning property with beautiful views all round
The property is in a fantastic location, high up on the mountainside, with stunning views all round - it's a 20 minute or so drive up a steep track from Organya, but worth it. The property itself is recently renovated and as good as the photos suggest - and we loved the natural swimming pool.
een oase van rust middenin de spectaculaire natuur
De plek is fantastisch: stil, spectaculair uitzicht, zeer comfortabel en goed uitgerust. Dit is een echte rustplek middenin de natuur. Vogelaars komen hier goed aan hun trekken, en dat gewoon vanaf het terras! De omgeving is prachtig (wij vonden het canoying een aanrader, maar ook wandelingen worden overal goed aangegeven) en nog niet overstroomd met toeristen.
We hadden een warme week dus het heerlijke koele zwembad is veel gebruikt.
Het is handig om een stevige motor in de auto te hebben (wij hadden een suv) omdat de weg naar het huisje op enkele stukken wel wat steil is.

A place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wildlife, but it is also a place that tempts you to practice sports and have adventures.
