Our restored farmhouse has three bedrooms for guests, each with a private bathroom, and a double bed or two single beds according to your choice. The dining room, sitting room and garden are all communal areas. In the sitting room you´ll not only find a comfortable sofa but also games, books and information on the area. Breakfast is included in the price of the room. The other meals are optional and, whenever possible, will be prepared with organic ingredients from our farm: eggs from our chickens, vegetables and herbs from our garden.
Is this your cup of tea?
Our farmhouse is located in a beautiful valley where you won´t have mobile coverage. The closest town, Beceite, is seven kilometres away.
We do have telephone and internet but we´re not connected to the mains. A small well provides us with fresh drinking water and the rain water is used for sanitary purposes after collection and purification. We use solar energy for hot water and electricity.
In view of this water and electricity are relatively scarce and we ask our guests not to waste these recourses. So if you are used to having very long showers or watching television, our accommodation is not suitable for you. However, are you looking for accommodation surrounded by nature, tranquility, space, fresh air and beautiful skies with stars, then we´d love to welcome you.
The surroundings: peaceful, green and impressive
Our farmhouse is situated in the foothills of the Puertos de Beceite. It´s an ideal base for hiking and mountainbiking in the surrounding mountains. At 500 metres is the dam Pantano de Pena, a wonderful place for swimming, fishing, windsurfing or canoeing. The long distance walk GR8 runs along this dam. The closest town, Beceite, is seven kilometres away.
The Matarraña region
This undiscovered region derives its name from the river Matarraña and is constituted by 18 medieval villages set in a rural landscape of almonds, olives and vines. It borders the natural park "Los Puertos de Beceite", a beautiful mountainous area with rivers winding through narrow valleys and a rich flora and fauna with ibex, wild boars and vultures.
Visits can be made to the local towns and villages, with or without guide. Each village has its own charm with a church, chapel, an ethnological or archaeological museum, an art gallery in an old paper factory, a medieval jail, mudéjar, gothic and renaissance buildings, etc. Close to some villages you can visit the ruins of deserted iberico settlements.
The area is a perfect place for walking, hiking and biking either in the natural park the Puertos de Beceite or inbetween the villages. There are many marked excursions, among which part of the GR8 and the Vía Verde, an abandoned and restored railway track from Tortosa to Alcañiz, now only accesible for people by foot, on bike or horseback.
Senda organizes all sorts of outdoor activities, excursions and guided tours and Picadero JJ in Valderrobres offers excursions on horseback.
Go swimming: every village has its own public swimming pool but more special are the rivers Algars and Ulldemó with their cristal clear water or the artificial lake Pantano de Pena, where you can also go fishing, windsurfing or canoeing.
Astronomy and bird watching
At night you can enjoy the beautiful sky with hundreds of stars and the Milky Way (as there is no light pollution) and during daytime the wide variety of birds.
In the shops and restaurants you can treat yourself to local products such as the sublime olive oil, cured ham, peaches, goat´s cheese, almond sweets, or wines.
Other places of interest
The wider area has much to offer: the Maestrazgo with pintoresc villages such as Mirambel or Morella, Horta de Sant Joan with its Picassomuseum, or the coast with quiet sandy beaches and the Ebro Delta with its rice paddy fields and important bird colonies with flamingos.
