“Friendly and charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

We stayed in the family room for two nights in July 2012. The hosts were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The masia was beautifully restored with lots of nice details. The breakfast was very tasty, lots of different cheeses and sausages - and of course the best home-made bread we had on our trip. They recommended a restaurant near the castle, which was very good, and also the tapas bar down in the village was great! And they arranged a cava-tasting at Parés Balta nearby. Thank you for a relaxing stay!

Having travelled for 3 weeks throughout Catalunya and stayed at various places (B&B's and small hotels) we have the feeling quality does not always match the price... Yes, some of the postive comments here on Tripadvisor are certainly true: nice location, nice pool, friendly hosts and it is a nice region if you want to get away from the tourist masses... We booked 6 months in advance, as we are travelling with 3 older kids, and we value a nice location. We had 2 rooms: the one for the 3 kids was very small; with the extra bed, there was hardly any room left, which was not very comfortable (considering there was no airconditioning). The other room, although also not very big had a nice little terrace with a view. The plumbing of the 2 bathrooms (being in the older part of the house) should be upgraded for getting a comfort level appropriate for the price.
The Honesty Bar was quite nice, having a great selection of local wines (Penedes is a great wine region!)
We joined for dinner one evening. It was unfortunate the weather was not great, so we could not sit on the terrace which is quite nice. The meal was home-style cooking, nothing spectacular. The owner was very friendly to make a nice vegetarian dish for my daugther. However, knowing how well you can eat in Catalunya for a moderate price, it was too expensive.

Dear Dirk & family

Thank you for your reflections about your stay with us. We are always happy to receive feedback, so that we can get a little better every day.
We are sorry to read that not everything was to your liking.

Of course every single person experiences individual facts differently. So let me state what we are talking about so that each reader can evaluate for him or herself.

The twin bedded room with extra bed has got the size of 15,5 m2 not countng the wardrobe space plus the bathroom of 8m2. The price per person for two beautiful rooms with bathroom, one with a private terrace was 34 Euros per person and night in July for a short stay. A home cooked, three course dinner with local and mostly organic ingredients (water, bread and a second helping of the main course included), was 20 Euros per adult and 15 Euros for the three nearly adult kids.

As for the plumbing, yes, we ask to put sanitary products and bigger amounts of toilet paper in the bin, which is cleaned during the daily room service. Our bathrooms are new and the plumbing is in very good conditions, only the drain pipe diameter in two of our bathrooms can lead to jams sometimes, if confronted with too much toilet paper at once. However, we are very sorry to hear that you felt discomforted by this.

On the other hand, I´d like to thank you for enjoying your private terrace with the fantastic views it offers as well as the pool with views over the vineyards and the cosy courtyard with the lounge sofa that invite to chat and try one or the other glass of wine and cava.

Kind regards
Ariane

Thank you Rainer and Ariane for an excellent holidays. We enjoyed the hotel, the rooms, the view from the veranda, the pool, and the wonderful breakfasts that you prepared for us each morning. Being good hosts came natural to you and you use that talent to make us feel well. Thank from all of us and hope to return in the near future, and hope to see you in Portugal as well.

You might think that it gets a little boring after so many visits… but nooo. I could go on and on about the area – from vineyard tours to Montserrat to of course Barcelona which are close . To us, it´s more the love and care that has been put into the Finca. With Ariane and Rainer to cradle us through our stay every time…. Just perfect. To put it simply, it´s like going on holiday with friends (that you like) :))

We had a fantastic time staying with Rainer, Ariane and family. The room and house was welcoming and very comfortable, set in wonderful surroundings. Their recomendations and advice on the local area and all it has to offer was great, perfect guides to make the most of an area with an abundance of beauty and charm. Really enjoyed the local produce and attitude towards the historic culture of the area. Our stay was incredibly relaxed and thanks to our hosts we made the most of our time in this beautiful part of Catalunya... Thank you and good luck for the future!

We had great time with Rainer and Ariane in their lovely home/casa rural. We were made welcome from the first moment and were absolutely delighted with our rooms. Each one has the name of a fruit and it was wonderful that the most the children could disagree about during our stay was which fruit name was best. The pool was great and the terrace area ideal for relaxing at the end of a hot day. We left feeling utterly relaxed and content which was exactly what we wanted to achieve. Happy children, happy people.

The house, the rooms, the hosts and the surroundings are all very nice.
But the nearest neighbor is a noisy pub.
Their music and talking is loud all day and evening and is pretty annoying, but their dogs are a nuisance from 5:30 AM till around 8 AM.

Dear Jan and family

Thank you for taking time to comment on your stay with us. We appreciate it a lot, and please rest assured that we will look into it in order to make our house and service even better.

We are very unhappy that you couldn't enjoy your stay as much as we hoped you had.

The bar in the neighbourhood hasn´t made us any problems so far, and I am sorry tthat you experienced it as a nuisance. It´s normally a quiet bar where the country workers go to have a coffee, sandwich or a beer. Most guests barley realize there is a bar in the neighbourhood, as in the courtyard, garden, swimming pool, common areas and nearly all rooms, it´s not recognizable.

I remember you saying "thank you for a wonderful evening" after having dinner all together under the mulberry tree in the light of the candles. We as well enjoyed the bottle of wine together with you in the courtyard, relaxing on the lounge sofa.

We have fond memories of you and your family and hope to see you all again another year!

Kind regards
