In the small village of Argestues, there are only our houses, a small millennial church, the sheep and goat farm, and the house of our only neighbors who run the farm and the shop. The houses are surrounded by meadows and forests, with spectacular scenery. We are pioneers in the use of renewable energy. The installation of photovoltaic solar energy has been providing us with electricity for thirty years. Hot water is generated by thermal solar panels and most heating is done with firewood.
Only a dozen people live in the village of Taus all year round. It is close to the Boumort Nature Reserve. The scenery and wildlife surrounding the house are spectacular. The house is comfortable and romantic. The hot tub overlooks the forest.
LA BORDA DEL FEU
IN LA GUÀRDIA D’ARES
This Catalan high mountain farmhouse is located in the highest inhabited valley in Catalonia. It is surrounded by meadows and forests, with the river very close. Nature is splendid. We can often see deer close to home. This is a territory of mushrooms and roe deer, foxes, wild boars, vultures, eagles … We are currently working on an energy efficiency project to install photovoltaic solar panels that will generate electricity and aerothermal equipment for heating and hot water.
- If you bring a pet, you must notify us, a supplement of 25 euros is charged per pet and per stay, and a deposit of 100 euros is left, which is returned once the cleaning has been done and it has been verified that there has been no no damage.
- In all the houses there is the kitchen equipment to be able to cook, plates, cutlery, glasses, wine and cava glasses, cups, the coffee maker is one of the classic Italian ones, which boils the water to make the coffee. There is a bowl with a little oil, vinegar, salt and sugar, but not enough to cook every day, there is soap to clean the dishes and for the dishwasher, also scouring pad, dish towel, kitchen towels, tablecloths…
- In the bedrooms the beds are already made. There is hand soap, but no shampoo or shower gel, there is a hairdryer, iron, hand and shower towels, but not for the pool. We leave wood for the stove and barbecue, but often customers bring a bag of coal because that way the embers are made easier and faster…
- In the winter months, we recommend carrying chains in the car, although you rarely need to use them. From November to February in the mountains it can snow at any time.
The nature of the environment, the architecture of the Cal Sodhi building complex and the personal treatment. The cleanliness, the order, the taste for details and the location. Far from everything. Perfect place to forget the world. Also the fact of knowing that you are occupying a nucleus that generates 100% of the demand for DHW and electricity production through renewable energies. To put a fault perhaps the dimensions of the shower and WC area in the bathroom are a little small and a little dark, with little light (on the other hand understandable knowing the limitations of energy self-generation).
Exceptional. We loved the house and all the details, the decoration, the comfort...everything. We are very grateful!!
If you visit... you will want to come back!!! We have spent an exceptional weekend, from the first impression, reception from Mr. Josep. The beautiful, comfortable house, decorated with great taste, equipped with everything you need, perfect to enjoy the fresh air with the family, the unbeatable views, the starry sky at night and sunrise at 8:15. We went to the farm and it was one of the best moments of the stay, knowing how they work, interacting with the animals and trying the good products they make there. Without a doubt we will repeat, beautiful experience 😊
Fantastic. We will definitely be back! The house is absolutely beautiful and spotlessly clean. Rosa, the owner, was lovely. The area is wild and amazing. Everything perfect!!!
The environment, the tranquility, the trust and kindness of the owners, the taste with which the house is laid out, not a detail is missing. The park and the safety with which children play outdoors. Having the farm nearby so you can visit it and buy local products.
Family disconnection! It is an idyllic place to find disconnection and contact with nature. Fantastic house, two bedrooms with two bathrooms and equipped kitchen. A wonderful pool and spectacular surroundings. We will definitely repeat! A detail that I like: the high chair for my baby was Stokke, very comfortable for my 7-month-old daughter.
Beautiful house in the axis of the Pyrenees. - Everything exceptional! A well-renovated 3-storey house in a mid-mountain town, with incredible panoramic views. - Exceptional treatment on arrival - Very comfortable and super clean house, heating and fireplace. - I would only say that the closest supermarket is about 45 minutes by car down the mountain so you have to do your shopping before you arrive 😊
Superb, peaceful place to unwind! What a beautiful, peaceful and quiet place! A beautiful house on top of a mountain. If you like peace and quiet, you will definitely like it here. Beautiful pool with stunning views! Lovely large and cool house, very tastefully decorated and everything has been thought of. Super nice, hospitable owner. The owner even treated us to a beautiful ride through the mountains. A few hundred meters away you can buy delicious organic products at a farm, not very extensive, but also very nice people. What we enjoyed here!
Exceptional. My dog really enjoyed it and so did we. All excellent, we would recommend it without a doubt.
Solitary location in a dreamlike landscape. Very nice apartment with good facilities. Ideal as a starting point for hikes or tours.
Exceptional. A house full of small details, high quality furniture, from the bed to the sofa, the bathtub and shower, fantastic and warm lighting. Very complete and comfortable kitchen, with all kinds of utensils. Great views and situation to disconnect for a few days Honestly... perfect, To repeat
Excellent accommodation and wonderful hosts! The perfect destination if you're taking a weekend trip from Barcelona. The staff managed to make our vacation memorable. The apartment was really idyllic and clean. The kitchen had all the supplies for cooking. Very comfortable beds and warm blankets. Pets are welcome!
The location in an isolated place with few people. Surrounded by nature. A place to leave the car when you arrive and not pick it up until you return. The pool area, spectacular. Rosa, very kind and always available. The house very well equipped. There is a farm very close where we buy bread and cheesecake, jam. All very good. To say something... The house does not have a microwave but you adapt. The rooms, most with double bed.
The house is very, very clean, its owners Rosa and her father Don José, offer you all the details you may need, we really liked the views, the cleanliness, how impeccable the house was, and all the details they had with U.S. They made us feel like home. Everything was perfect, we liked everything, and there is nothing to improve, on the contrary, the house is charming and the good time we had has marked a unique adventure for us.
The environment, the tranquility, the kindness of the owners, the super careful details. If you are looking to disconnect, it is the ideal place, without a doubt there is something special in Argestues. Perhaps the beds were a bit stiff, and I missed a microwave, otherwise everything was perfect.
Amazing place to stay for relaxation and access to lovely places to visit to enjoy nature. We loved everything about Cal Sindhi, great place to escape and relax close to nature. Incredible views! Very friendly and helpful owners, missing this wonderful place already! Facilities all perfect and close to the places we wanted to visit.
With a lot of charm! They take care of every last detail. Aesthetically it's amazing! There are some adorable kitties hanging around outside who will thank you for bringing them cans, they deserve it!
When a small detail is so important!! "I highly recommend the place!! it's magical, the hosts are their own family, you can't ask for more, attention, information and savoir faire, taste for decoration"
Apartment located in a small town with lots of charm. The house has everything you need to spend a great stay and feel at home. Thank you Rosa and family for the warm welcome and good treatment!
Perfect weekend, the house we stayed in was very beautiful and cozy. Very good facilities and a wonderful environment to disconnect and reconnect. The family that runs it is lovely. We will definitely repeat. Thank you very much!
Exceptional! Very nice Rosa and her family. Ideal place to completely disconnect. The house is well equipped and cozy, with a very pleasant garden.
The house, the location, the hosts - everything was amazing! The houses are made perfectly, with attention to detail and to the environment. The mountains are beautiful, and so quiet and peaceful. I really envy the hosts for living there. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go again because 3 days wasn't enough at all. There was absolutely nothing we didn't like.
