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

Location description from owner

The Catalonia 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.

“Beautiful House..amazing village”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2012

We stayed for a week - 2 familes with 6 children between us ranging in age from 2-10 years. Camarasa the village is beautiful - lots of medieval buildings and tiny winding steep streets. In the evening we would all stroll up to the bar at the tiny Plaza Major and enjoy a beer whilst the children played in the square and made friends with Spanish kids! My son even got invited to play ping-pong at a boy's house. Totally Spanish, you don't feel like a tourist. Fab local swimming pool. Heavenly views, glorious sunshine. The house is well equipped, with loads of room for everyone. Highly recommend

“well thought out accommodation in a wonderful area”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2011

We spent 2 weeks at Ca la Daina. We had our own family of 4 (including 2 adult children) and a series of guests. The location is ideal. Camarasa has wonderful mountain and lakeside walks, the Segre River with its excellent swimming (go where the locals go), lakes, cliffs, and shopping within walking distance (or more shopping a short drive into Balaguer) and a train station just 3 kilometers away at Sant Llorenc de Montgai. The layout of the villa is simple: (a) a terrace upstairs with its own kitchen and wonderful views, where we usually had breakfast each morning, and evening drinks before dinner; (b) below that, 2 floors, each with 3 double bedrooms (ie 6 bedrooms in all). Each bedroom has either its own dedicated bathroom or an en suite; (c) below those 2 floors, a kitchen/lounge dining room - with wi fi and a desk for computer use; (d) below the main living area, a cellar which was essentially a storage area and a way through to the car. The house is suitable for children - but for very young children the stairs might be an issue. We were the only tourists in the village. We were far from exhausting all there is to see after 2 weeks. Highlights included the train of the lakes up the line beyond Tremp (stunning) dining at Hotel Terradets (amazing meal) and many walks in the immediate area including to the Sant Jordi Hermitage and the Segre Gorge. You really need a car for this house, although there is a bus at the foot of the street and the train is close by for visitors - and there are bikes for guests. The bakery is magnificent. Everyone was captivated by the views and the wonderful things to see in the area. It's a region with a long history - the Segre is mentioned in Caesar's commentaries, and the Segre offensive in the Spanish Civil War occurred here. We have a lifetime of memories from a stay that was all too short.
