Holiday Rental House
This typically Spanish house is set in a small sleepy village in the rural heart of lower Aragon, in an area which produces wine, olives, almonds and the famous melocotones, or large peach. The olives here are the best in the world. The layout is more typically English, in that the kitchen and dining room/sitting room with TV and DVD player are on the ground floor, but everything else about the house, including the generously sized washroom on the top floor, is Spanish! The house has 4 bedrooms, two on the first floor,one with ataking sized bed, one with a double bed, and 2 single rooms in the upper floor. There is also a lovely bathroom with toilet, bidet, shower and sink. In the living room there is a TV for guests use which is connected to the local Spanish television service.

The house also benefits from WiFi internet access. The village has shops, bars and all other amenities, including an open air swimming pool which is open in the summer from June - Sept, when the children here are on holiday. In August there is a fiesta, during which Maella swells in size and activity! Children are warmly welcomed here, and is you want a taste of the real Spain, this is the place to come. There is a high chair available for younger diners, and a cot. In July and August, temperatures can reach 45 degrees, but in general, the weather in Aragon is good, with only sudden rain showers! December and January are cold months, and as the house has no central heating, these months the house is not available. If this is the time you want, please email me, and medium or autumn prices would apply. More

Thanks. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. This is a very rural part of Spain where olive, almond and peach growing is the norm. The beds are all in fact new. As is the Spanish way, the other furniture is original to the...More

About the neighbourhood
Maella is a small village, which boasts all the shops amenities you need on a daily basis, and an open air swimming pool in the summer months. There is also a 24 hour medical centre in case of any emergencies, so you can have the best of both worlds here. Early August sees the fiesta in full swing in Maella, with bars offering more food and local delights, as well as nearly 24 hour partying for all ages! Fiestas are not just for the 18 - 30 crowd! The scenery is beautiful and full of wildlife, including birds of prey and hoopoe, as well as wild boar(in the counytyside). The night time sky is a must for star gazers, as the lack of light pollution means you can see so much! Bring a pair of binoculars.
Getting around
If you just want to have a relaxing time in the village, there is a limited bus service from Barcelona and El Prat airport. Check on the HIFE website for times before you book your flight though as the last bus leaves about mid afternoon. If you want to explore the wider Mattaraña area while you are here, it is well worth hiring a car. There is so much natural environment to explore.
