I went on a wonderful yoga retreat in the North of Spain, the ‘finca’ that we stayed at is also for rent as a vacation home. The house called ‘Casa Los Duendes‘ is located in a beautiful valley, has 17 acres of land filled with olive trees and is a beautiful place to stay. It’s perfect to rent with your family or friends if you’re looking for a quiet getaway. When you arrive at Casa Los Duendes you’ll feel relaxed straight away. It has such a beautiful surrounding and a great atmosphere. A big dining table on the porch, a swimming pool, olive trees, views of the surrounding mountains… what more do you need?
Casa Los Duendes is situated in the North of Spain, about 2 hours South of Barcelona. You can book really affordable flights to Reus airport, from where it’s only a 40 minute drive to the vacation home. You can rent a car at Reus airport. When I book a flight I always use a website to compare prices and it wasn’t until recently that I discovered there’s a website like that for rental cars as well! It’s called EasyTerra. You just type in your pick-up place and date and they give you a list of all the cars from all the companies that are available. I thought this was a great invention as it’s always quite a hassle to compare all the individual websites yourself. EasyTerra is a Dutch website, but you can use it for destinations all over the world, also for Reus airport. You can also apply certain filters when searching for a car, for this stay a SUV might come in handy as the road to Casa Los Duendes is a bit rocky.
Casa Los Duendes consists of two separate vacation homes. One houses up to 9 people in 4 rooms, the other houses up to 6 people in 3 rooms. They both have their own porch and kitchen and every room has it’s own shower and toilet. They share the swimming pool.
The houses are both perfect to prepare your own breakfasts, lunches or dinners and enjoy them outside in the sun! You can also drive to one of the towns nearby of course.
The house is the perfect starting point for a nice walk. There are several options, from short to a bit longer (1,5 hours). You can even walk for about 1,5 hours to nearby town Corbera d’Ebre. On your way you’ll have beautiful views from the mountains and you’ll probably won’t see anyone else you can just enjoy nature!
The hosts at Casa los Duendes, Henk and Chandora, are two of the friendliest people I’ve ever met! They’ll make sure your stay at the vacation home is as pleasant as can be! They’ll probably offer to meet you at the nearby supermarket so you can do some groceries before they guide you to the vacation home. Breakfast on the porch with a view of the swimming pool, olives trees and mountains is one of the best moments of the day!
