Embedded in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains Ca la Daina is a beautiful and lovingly restored 16th c house over 5 floors with beams and log fires, cosy, but also spacious, sleeping up to 16 people. Fabulous views from the terrace overlooking gorges and mountains. Ideal for two or three families or groups of friends. Our home is situated in the medieval village of Camarasa with 600 inhabitants, Catalan people are very welcoming and they go out of there way to help and offer advice and there is a lovely friendly atmosphere. Take your time to stop and chat. There are two bars and a fabulous bakery which sell croissants to die for! There is a well stocked village store and supermarkets are only 10 minutes away in the medieval town of Balaguer. Every Saturday there is a market in the main plaza of Balaguer worth visiting for cheeses and vegetables and a coffee at Can Pepita, our favourite cafe in town. 5 minutes from the house is a fabulous large outside swimming pool 20 metres by 13metres, perfect for swimming, sunbathing and relaxing with views to the mountains. Free wi-fi. No TV

Local activities include walking, climbing, swimming, cycling, kayaking, vinyard visit, pilates, cookery classes, gold-panning, observatory visit, hang-gliding, romanesque churches and castles and lots of bars and bakeries!

Many rock-climbers have stayed in the house which is recognised as one of the finest sport climbing venues in Europe. There is a huge variety of climbing and bouldering to be found in this area, with everything from steep limestone gorges, tall pinnacles of rock to sports climbing in a mountainous environment and sandstone boulders.

Walking around Camarasa is stupendous, from the village you can walk for hours along mountain tracks to hidden hermitages, caves and ancient deserted villages. Half an hour's drive can take you high up into the Pyrenees to ridge walks with panoramic views of snow-capped peaks. Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn you will find plenty to do

Roof Terrace

The newly extended roof terrace faces south and has stunning views over the village to the tree-lined gorge of the River and over into the mountains. On this floor is a newly fully equiped kitchen. This is the place for sunbathing, evening drinks and eating al fresco.

Five minutes from the house is a fantastic swimming pool with terracotta terrace perfect for swimming sunbathing and relaxing.

You can have fun at the nearby reservoirs of Camarasa and Sant Llorenc hiring kayaks/canoes/pedaloes, swimming and picnicking, or just relaxing in the sun. We now have 4 new mountain bikes for use for our guests. There is paragliding, mountain biking and rafting for hire in nearby towns or if you feel lazy you can watch the scenery go by and take the local train from nearby San Llorenc up through the gorge, alongside the lake and into the mountains, there are quaint little railway cafes for refreshments along the way, this is a wonderful trip to take an hour in total.

About this location

The Catalunia region

Set between the foothills of the Montsec Mountains and the flatlands of Lleida where the Segre and Noguera Ribagorçana rivers meet, the Noguera area is full of contrasts. Lovers of art and architecture will find in the Noguera many examples of its rich history such as monasteries, churches, paintings, sculptures, crypts, castles etc. You can visit examples of the Romanesque era (church of Sant Pere de Ponts or the Monastery of las Franqesas), of Islamic architecture (Alcabassa de Balaguer and the castle of los Condes de Urgell) and of Catalan Gothic (Monastery of Collegiata de Santa Maria de Balaguer). Particular recommendations are the Baronia de Sant Oïsme and Maria de Bellpuig de Avellanes as well as the villages of Camarasa, Cubells and Àger.

With the peaceful waters of its lakes and reservoirs, the mountains and the plain, the Noguera offers endless opportunities for sport and adventure sport in the middle of nature.

Lleida

Camarasa lies on the left bank of the Segre River and holds within its boundaries important prehistoric excavation sites as well as the ruins of a roman bridge and part of an Arabic castle. Camarasa’s mediaeval history can be seen in the narrow streets, old buildings and town gates in the village centre and in the church of Sant Miguel. A visit to the ‘living crib’ in the church at Christmas time is not to be missed. In the immediate vicinity the reservoir next to the village of Sant Llorenc de Montgai offers opportunities for canoeing and provides a home to a wide variety of water birds.
