Description from owner


COVID-19 notice

Tourism is the most important contributor to the economy of Spain.

The governments of Spain and Catalunya have been in constant communication with tourist operators with regard to making accommodation safe and available again.

Because 2020 was a difficult year for most people we are keeping our prices the same for 2021.

We have received clear instructions about how to prepare and clean our public areas and the swimming pool and we would like to reassure anyone contemplating coming to stay at Manna House that we have done everything possible to safeguard your health. Because of the outbreak we ask that guests in the Casita and in our other property, the Barn, take it in turns to use the pool. We will arrange a fair rota system for both properties. If you have any specific questions about this please get in touch.

The Casita is a delightful old cottage, used in olden times for shelter for the farmer and his donkey. It is very cosy; warm in winter and cool in summer. It has been completely renovated and is completely self-contained. It has an upstairs sleeping area with a double bed and a double sofa bed downstairs in the large main living area, which also has a logburner for the cooler winter months.

The Casita is not really suitable for 4 adults but is perfect for a couple with children.

Outside the casita there is a large ironwork pergola, over which grow 2 old vines. These provide a gorgeous feast of grapes in the autumn and from early summer onward provide cooling shade from the hot sun, ideal to relax under with a nice drink. We also make some superb wine from the grapes. The finca is a wonderful place to explore and has a multitude of places where you can feel completely alone and find that quiet moment to catch up on your favourite book or just enjoy some sunbathing. We have a lovely dog who will make good friends with you and loves children.

The casita is ideal for couples or for a small family group.

We encourage our guests to use water wisely. It is such a precious resource and we try to be as efficient as possible with its use; for example we use the water from the washing up to water the trees outside the Casita and we encourage people not to leave taps running while brushing their teeth or washing their hands.

All the gas that we use is bottled butane and is very clean. All electricity is full domestic supply and is powered entirely by the sun through our own bank of solar panels and batteries. The batteries do not provide enough power for hair dryers, coffee machines or mobile air conditioning units so please leave these at home.

Near to the Casita is our own Petanque court which provides hours of fun for all the family.

Please remember that normal checkout time is 11 am. However, if we have no other guests needing to check in that day and you wish to stay a bit longer then we would be happy for you to stay later for an additional €30.

Our finca has been licensed by the Catalunya Tourist Board to offer holiday accommodation. This organisation promotes the provision of a high standard of accommodation and service to holidaymakers in Catalunya.

Getting around

The roads here are wonderful, newly built and provide access to just about everywhere you could want to go. Fuel is relatively cheap so driving is a great way to see the country at your own pace. The train services are very good, clean and cheap. A ticket to Barcelona for example costs around €12 for an adult and takes under 2 hours.

Interaction with guest

On your arrival we will be here to give you the keys to the property and show you where everything is. We live here all year round so are always here to show you our sustainable lifestyle and how we reduce our impact on the environment, chat about the weather, the best beaches, sights to see, what's going on in the area or to hear about what a wonderful day you have had. We have met some wonderful people from all over the world and it is always great to meet new ones. Tourism is an extraordinary tool that enables us to reach out to people, makes us more open to change, more receptive to differences and, therefore, more tolerant. We will send you detailed directions on how to find the farm near to your arrival time.

Water is a very precious resource so please use it sparingly.

The casita, is well equipped and spotlessly clean. The hosts, Simon and Amanda were fabulous, friendly, welcoming and happy to share their knowledge and experience of building their wonderful new life in the sun. The dogs and chickens were a bonus as was the endless olive groves, almond trees and views. A place to unwind and totally relax with or without the sun.
