We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Finca. The farmhouse is set in a lovely location with easy access to shops, the beach and Barcelona airport. There was also easy access to local villages and towns, we particularly liked L'Ampolla for its beach and restaurants. It would be hard if not impossible to stay at the house without a car, so do rent one if you're thinking of staying here!
Alex and Rosy were really helpful, they were on hand if we needed anything and provided us with plenty of information about the local area. We found that we didn't leave the house too much, the house was relaxing and comfortable. We explored the farm on foot, getting some great views across to the sea and spent a lot of time in the house, sitting outside and eating fresh local fish from the BBQ!
All four of us are in our twenties and the lack of wi-fi was, we'd have to say, most welcome. Alex and Rosy's house is the perfect place to switch off and detach from the world. We often planned the day before when we had signal, which worked out excellently.
We would thoroughly recommend Alex and Rosy's house!
Beautiful property in a stunning location, it surpassed our expectations, perfect romantic getaway, completely self contained and secluded in a magnificent olive grove. The property was immaculate and the owners could not have been more helpful. The villa is situated halfway between Barcelona and Valencia, so both cities are within easy reach, as well as a number of charming towns and nature parks nearby. A real taste of rural Spain, cannot recommend highly enough.
More than a pleasant and functional rental: the "casa guarda" is rather a real haven of peace conducive to a relaxing and exotic vacation.
Nestled at the bottom of a small valley with stone terraces and olive trees, the house respects its environment while offering modern comfort.
We spent 2 weeks: quiet days on the property and outings discovered less than an hour by car.
Advice owners are sensible and are oriented, as the spirit of renovating the area, to seek the good and beautiful things.
To conclude, if you want to find quality of life, the "casa guarda" is a real good choice.
Luogo incantevole, dove rigenerare mente e corpo in qualsiasi stagione dell' anno.
Pur essendo lontano dal caos e dallo stres della quotidianità, garantisce rapido acceso a tutti i servizi .
La pace ed il silenzio di questo luogo immerso nel verde della vegetazione e degli ulivi secolari, lasciano riscoprire sensazioni spesso dimenticate.
In ogni momento della giornata si può godere di sensazioni diverse a seconda dei suoni e dei profumi percepiti netti e distinti ai nostri sensi.
La scarsità d'inquinamento luminoso dona un rara oscurità e nelle ore notturne è possibile abbandonarsi all' immensità di un firmamento meraviglioso accompagnati dai suoni della notte.
La struttura, pur garantendo tutti i comfort di un abitazione moderna, è
completamente ecosostenibile grazie a ll' utilizzo di energia da fonti rinnovabili ed il recupero e riutilizzo delle acque.
Il tutto nel rispetto dell' architettura del posto e la perfetta integrazione con l'ambiente circostante.....
La cura e la pulizia degli spazi sono ineccepibili cosi come il mantenimento delle colture.
La piscina inoltre regala piacevoli momenti di refrigerio nelle ore più calde delle giornate estive.
UN ESPERIENZA DA PROVARE ASSOLUTAMENTE.

Enchanting place, where to regenerate mind and body in any season of the year.
Despite being far from the chaos and the stress of everyday life, it guarantees quick access to all services.
The peace and silence of this place immersed in the greenery of vegetation and ancient olive trees, allow us to rediscover often forgotten sensations.
At any time of the day you can enjoy different sensations depending on the sounds and perfumes perceived clean and distinct to our senses.
The scarcity of light pollution gives a rare darkness and at night it is possible to abandon oneself to the immensity of a wonderful firmament accompanied by the sounds of the night.
The structure, while ensuring all the comforts of a modern home, is
completely eco-friendly thanks to the use of energy from renewable sources and the recovery and reuse of water.
All in respect of the architecture of the place and the perfect integration with the surrounding environment .....
The care and cleaning of the spaces are unexceptionable as well as the maintenance of the crops.
The pool also offers pleasant moments of refreshment during the hottest hours of summer days.
AN EXPERIENCE TO TRY ABSOLUTELY.
Finca Casita Guarda es un lugar perfecto para todos. Es ideal para una escapada romántica, para disfrutar en familia, o alejarse del estrés de la ciudad con tu mascota. Rodeada de olivos, la casa se mezcla entre el paisaje como si siempre hubiera formado parte de él. Cuidada con mucho mimo, tiene detalles que la hacen especial y te enamoran. La salida directa hacia la piscina que tiene la habitación principal te hará sentir que éste es el lugar donde siempre quisiste estar. Un placer haber estado

Finca Casita Guarda is a perfect place for everyone. It is ideal for a romantic getaway, to enjoy with the family, or get away from the stress of the city with your pet. Surrounded by olive trees, the house blends into the landscape as if it had always been part of it. Careful with much care, has details that make it special and you fall in love. The direct exit to the pool that has the main room will make you feel that this is the place where you always wanted to be. A pleasure to have been.
This is the second time we have stayed at the Eco Farm. A beautiful location with acres of Olive trees . So peaceful here. Easy to get to from Barcelona or Valencia by car. The house is cosy and has everything you need. It is only 10 minutes drive to the nearest village supermarket, or the beach. Rosy and Alex the owners are so helpful and friendly. The swimming pool is private and wonderful in the hot season. I am sure we will visit again as this place is so unique.

We stayed at this lovely cottage for 4 days and 3 nights and absolutely fell in love with the place. The cottage is very cute and has all the amenities needed. The property is so well maintained and gorgeous. It’s a perfect place where we wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of London and completely turn off. The dipping pool was perfect to cool down in the heat. At night the cool breeze was refreshing while we barbecued. The local area beaches were wonderful with nice restaurants to eat. All in all highly recommended if looking for a place to decompress and be one with nature! And still 20 minutes away from modern society if need.
