EL-FIGUERAL RURAL SELF-CATERING WITH THE TOUCH OF LUXURY
Finca El-Figueral is our luxury rural family home which we hire for self-catering holidays, located on Spain’s River Ebro. It was developed from our desire to change the hectic lifestyle we lived in the UK.
THE EL-FIGUERAL STORY
Between 2003 and 2004 we started looking for a rural property that had access to the River Ebro to indulge my passion for fishing, we found and fell in love with El Figueral, an 80,000m2 finca with a farm house of 90m2 that had been on the site and in the same family for over 400 years. The property had been outside the family only once by virtue of a card game and which during the Spanish civil war’s bloodiest battle, the “battle of the Ebro” provided “perfectly habitable front line accommodation with magnificent views over the river and valley to the republicans International Brigade”!!!!
We have made a few changes to the 90m2 farmhouse we purchased back in 2004. In renovating, we have tried to retain the original farmhouse feel but added the space and the comforts expected of today’s lifestyle.

Of course, we ensure that the swimming pool is clean and maintained throughout your stay and that the house is fully cleaned and serviced before you arrive.
EL-FIGUERAL SWIMMING POOL
This might be rural Spain and you might take a 360° look around and not see another person, but it gets hot and no self-respecting high-quality property would be without a pool to cool down and relax in. El-Figueral will not disappoint. The views from the pool are spectacular and we provide sun-loungers to relax in and table and chairs to enjoy a sun downer watching the last rays of sun in the evening. The pool is fully maintained throughout your stay so that the water is always crystal clear.
OPEN PLAN LIVING
The lounge, dining and Atrium areas are split level and open plan with large glass doors opening to the terraces giving a feeling of light and space. The lounge area has comfortable sofas to relax while you chat, read or watch TV or a DVD and we provide a selection of DVD’s and books. There is a central log fire for the brief colder periods that gives a warm cosy feel to the Finca and for prolonged cold weather the house is centrally heated.
There are four terraced areas that provide shade from the heat of the day, sun-downers and evening entertaining all with magnificent views.
Terrace 1) opens from the lounge via two patio doors onto a small terrace with views of the river and across the valley to the farms and mountains.
Terrace 2) opens from the lounge onto the swimming pool, there are Sun loungers and chairs to relax around the pool. The pool has amazing views of the River Ebro flowing through the valley. There is an outside shower located in the pool area.
Terrace 3) opens from the dining room onto a small patio with glass table and patio furniture, the ideal place for a sundowner while listening to music from the B&O CD system. Note the 7-stem palm on this patio an original feature of the old finca.
Terrace 4) opens from the kitchen, or put another way is an extension to the kitchen. With table and chairs, BBQ and a Patio area for games.
The open plan living theme runs through the kitchen area as well. Entering the kitchen from the bedroom corridor, there is a small lounge area with TV, perfect for cooking and socialising, a well provisioned kitchen area with large fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen opens to the kitchen terrace through large French door.
