|Senhor Robert, What an amazing holiday! We surmised from the details and your emails that we were coming to something special but they could not adequately prepare us for the reality. You have built a wonderful place here. The house, the location and the pool by themselves would have made it a holiday to remember but it has been your presence that has really made it so special. Your welcome, attentiveness, helpfulness and company have really greatly enhanced our stay. You have given us more awareness of local and national places of interest, history and customs that we would never had gained by ourselves. Thank you for everything - we have had the most glorious three weeks.

Barcelona Team Best landlord I've ever had!!! Thank you for your time, your conversation, your humor, you precise information!! We enjoyed a lot as you've seen, short journeys, Eco-pool, long breakfasts, pool again, late barbeque, lakes and rivers. We'll hire you for our future house in North Barcelona, so improve your Spanish! Un abraço!
