  • Description


    We are a family of 4 living in a little village in the natural park of Sierra de Guara (Huesca). Alex is a mountain guide and Anna is a medical doctor. Our daughters of 5 and 7 go to the small rural school - 20 m from the house. We are nature lovers and enjoy traveling and spending time in the outdoors-cycling, hiking, climbing,... We take care of our garden and have a little farm that are restoring little by little. We love cooking and doing traditional works- we make our own bread, cheese, ham, olive oil, mermelade,... We have two dogs and one cat that live outside our house. Our house is located in the centre of the little village. There are two small restaurants, a health center and a pharmacy in the village, which is located 20 min from Barbastro and 35 min from Huesca by car, the two main cities of the region. Alquezar is a medieval turistic town located at 18 km from our village.
