A Unique Rural Self-Catering Holiday and Retreat on Spain’s River Ebro
The El-Figueral Holiday experience
Welcome to El-Figueral, our remote, secluded, and quiet 8.8-hectare olive farm with beautiful views of our River Ebro valley and mountains. We offer unique Spanish rural family holidays and wellbeing weekend retreats.
The renovated old farmhouse retains its original character but with a modern open and light feel and it’s positioning and design take full advantage of its amazing location and provide a touch of rural luxury.
Our Spanish rural holidays are ideal for families and friendship groups looking for a relaxing, quiet, and peaceful holiday in a very tranquil location. Laze around the large pool, patios and terraces or take advantage of any of the many local activities. Walking, cycling, fishing (on our own private pegs on the River Ebro), kayaking, playing golf, enjoying the beaches, discovering the history of the area, or wine tasting. We are located between the Terra Alta, Priorate and Monsant wine regions. Our riverside village of Benifallet has an amazing selection of restaurants and bars for a village of its size. Try a local “menu del día, tapas ,or ala carte” meal or explore further afield in the Delta de Ebre or any of the local coastal villages.
We offer a self-catering Spanish rural holiday experience but we understand our guests like to be pampered on the odd occasion. So, we offer additional services such as relaxing therapies or a meal prepared at home by our professional chief.
In addition to our self-catering holidays, we run full board mindfulness retreat weekends throughout the year for Riverminds.
