We exchanged our place with Joaquim and Aurelio during one week. It was our first experience and we absolutely don't regret it.

They have been very friendly and welcoming. We felt like in our home.

The house is beautiful with an amazing view over the river. Miravet is a very nice and quiet village.
There is a lot of things to discover around.

Thank you so much for this great experience !

We had a wonderful time at this very special place in Miravet. Aurelio and Joaquim are very hospitable people, and we felt really taken care of.
The house is very special. An aesthetic experience. You can enjoy the building, the view, the art, the terraces and the garden.
Miravet is a quiet town and the citizens are very nice and helpful. You can get the most necessary things in the town.
Very specific is the castle and the story of the Knight Templars.
Miravet is very strategic, if you want to discover that part of Spain – Catalonia -
