  • Amazing peaceful place in the middle of vineyards
    5 of 5

    We (9 adults and 3 children) stayed at Cal Salvet for a week and the place could not have been any better. Merche has been great from the beginning a few month earlier, at the check-in and until we left. The host family is very warm and friendly. She even accepted to print some tickets that I needed to visit La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The house is well appointed and spacious. Despite the lack of air conditioning, it stays cool during the day and bug screens on all windows make it easy to leave windows open at night, especially since there is no noise. The swimming pool and the barbecue area were winners (we did not eat a single time inside). For runners, there are plentiful trails along patches of vineyards going in all directions and ready to be explored: some on rolling hills, some climbing. Early morning was the best for it when temperature was still low and the area was still covered with fog. We will keep sweet memories of Cal Salvet and Merche and her family. Thank you for letting us use your property.

  • Two days in January
    5 of 5

    We stayed at Cal Riba for two days before the 10-th Europe Rogaining Championship in January 2013. Two apartments for 10 persons were booked by Internet. It was easy for foreigners thanks to friendliness and perfect English of hause owner Roger. We arrived late in the evening and found our apartments previously warmed with heaters. We were very pleased because the night was quite cold, below zero. Actually Cal Riba has everything to spend a good time with friends - three separate bedrooms, cosy dinner room with a fireplace supplied with the stock of firewood, kitchen, hot shower, even a washing machine. We saw it but don't have time to use. We found enough warm blankets in a wardrobe, so nobody got cold. Sleep was extremely good, we woke up early but fresh. As result 6 of us won medals. I spent the day before competition walking around with my camera, because the surrounding nature and the village Torrebusqueta are incredible beautiful. It is great place not only for sportsmen but for artists as well. I only regret that we had to leave after competition. If we hadn’t I would fain have stayed for a couple days more. We spent really great time at Cal Riba. Thank you for everything, I hope to return some day.
