5 Star rating from HomeAway and EscapadaRural: This what some of our guests say
We spent one week at El Figueral in August 2019 and it did not disappointment! The house is beautifully situated in the mountains overlooking the Rio Ebro. The views were absolutely stunning. The location is what makes this property so unique. From almost every room in the house were amazing views. The pool was a winner for both kids and adults. The local village offered a small grocery store, bakery and butchershop. We had a delicious meal at one of the local restaurants. There were 9 of us including 4 children and we all had an amazing time. There were many activities available to us - we fished (equipment was provided by the owners), went on a river boat cruise and also kayaked along the river (a highlight!). David and Angeles were welcoming, gracious hosts and very responsive to our questions and needs. Eloi, their local property manager/helper was friendly and very, very helpful. Eloi helped book our activities. I would highly recommend this property to anybody. It is truly a special place!
CA few of the catches from a fantastic week on the Ebro at El Figueral: Dynamite Bait Group May 2019
Situated in a remote stunning location with panoramic views over the river Ebro .... However, the highlight was the fishing from the private pegs on the riverbank.... This time the fish were plentiful, Tom and Nick both broke the 100lb barrier with 126lb and 130lb respectively. backed up with several other cats at 68, 49, 45, 39, 36 ... Also, a number of carp were caught best in at 22lb common. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Thanks to David and Angeles for their hospitality and a special thanks to the attention and support from Eloi. Many thanks Nick, Tom, Janice, Kelly, Grace and Lauren 23.09.2018 Chris 2019 CA few of the catches from a fantastic week on the Ebro: Dynamite Bait Group May 2019
“thank you very much for the great hosting last week. We really enjoyed our stay in El Figueral. Attached also some pics. As already mentioned, we would like to make a reservation for next year. For at least 10 days with ………Please let us know if this fits from your side. As soon as I have the exact dates I will inform you…”
We were blown away by the property. It's a truly breath-taking location and a stunning villa. We stayed at the villa in August with another family and we were all completely blown away by both the location and the villa itself. It truly felt like a bit of luxury and I don’t think I could ever take enough photos to do it justice! The view is breath-taking, and the house, pool and gardens make the most of it. The house felt like a home and we spent many lovely hours by the pool, and fishing nearby. We had 4 young children with us, and they especially enjoyed the pool and walking down to the river, to fish. David and Angeles were perfect hosts, answering many random questions and kindly booking tables for us, when our Spanish let us down (!). We also can't speak highly enough of Eloi, the gentleman who looked after the house- he was also extremely helpful and accommodating, booking our kayaking trip for us. We had a wonderful week, in a very special location and will definitely return.
"Hi, thank you for allowing us to stay in your fantastic villa. We had a wonderful week. Fishing was great, I lost count of the fish I caught. Most were in 50lb to 60lb bracket. Biggest was 86lb......... We hope to bring more family back next year so will be in touch in the near future."
Amazing place. Large and spacious rooms and bathrooms to die for. super holiday would definitely come back again. So relaxing and chilled. Loved the fact the sunbeds were still free at 10.00 am. The village had everything u need but we drove the the big supermarket to stock up. But drove to village everyday for fresh bread. 08/16/2017 at 6:18 PM
“Hi David, thought you may like a shot of Doggies 130lb cat for your photo album, we had 15 cats loads of carp and even caught a bat flying around inside the villa, found a praying mantis, saw a lizard the size of a man’s arm? we had red squirrel for company at the swim along with more king fishers than you could shake a stick at. A great week and to top it all Juan didn’t fire his beast up once.... now that is a result!
