Province of Zaragoza, Aragon
Alto Jalon is a homely sort of house situated a little way from the church and main square of a peaceful. village. The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It has beamed ceilings, wooden floors, a wood-burning stove and full central heating. The kitchen/dining area leads out to a walled garden and swimming pool. By the pool is a covered area for eating out during the long summer evenings. There is a good barbecue and, for the more ambitious, a wood-fired clay oven that does marvellous things to the taste of your food.

Not far from the village there are restaurants and bars, a golf course, tennis and fronton courts and many pleasant walks. Alto Jalon is well situated for touring the area.

Our family loved to stay at Joanna's. Joanna gave us a warm welcome. The house is beautifull. Everything you need is there. The swimmingpool is great. Garden is lovely. Aragon is an authenitic area. House and area are worth a visit!

The children loved the pool and grew in confidence with their swimming. The outside area was perfect for sheltering from the hot sun and watching the pool antics. The house was comfortable beautifully furnished clean and well rsourced with kitchen equipment, towels etc. Joanna was more than helpful . A truly pleasurable stay , we hope to get back as...

About the neighborhood
Contamina is a very small, very sleepy pueblo. Indeed, everybody sleeps well in Contamina. However, one mile away is the more lively village of Alhama de Aragon, nationally famous for its delightful 'balneario' or thermal water spa where all manner of health and beauty treatments are available. Alhama also has banks, a chemist, a medical centre, a small delicatessen selling products typical of the area, a couple of restaurants and a rather surprising number of bars.

Twenty minutes drive from Alhama is the incredibly beautiful Monasterio de Piedra. Before the monastery was built a Moorish castle stood in its place. Indeed, much of the building material came from the old fort. Cistercian monks lived here for seven centuries then the place was confiscated and sold to supply som...
