A real gem. Splendid bedrooms with sky windows for stargazing, delicious seasonal cooking and a heavenly valley setting...

Read guest comments

A shame to stay only a night. This jewel of a place lies in a primeval Eden-like valley, lapped by the river Ebro. It is a 13th-century millworkers' home restored by young owner Javier, and the simplicity of the façade is reflected inside; all is authentic and exquisite. From the dim little entrance hall – cool for summer, warm for winter – you enter a chunky-beamed, stone-walled sitting room scattered with country furniture, a kilim, a sofa, a crackling fire. Then to bedrooms upstairs, each a splendid surprise: a cosy, delightful sitting room with a sofabed for children, and a double on the gallery above. There are antique wrought-iron beds, large classic wardrobes, white-and-terracotta bathrooms, sky windows to gaze at the stars... and you drift off to the sound of the river. Breakfast is a fine start to the day and the dinners, fresh and seasonal, are memorable. On a promontory down by the river is the watermill, 1,000 years old; the old flint wheels spin into action still when the sluice gate is opened. Spot otters and fish in the river – paradise for birdwatchers too! Exceptional owners, heavenly place.

"As keen birdwatchers we chose to stay here in order to have an experienced guide - which Javier certainly proved to be. We were delighted by all aspects of our stay. The house is lovely, the situation peaceful and the breakfasts and dinners varied and delicious. Most of all we appreciated the warmth and helpfulness of our hosts. We certainly hope to return."

"A very pleasant well restored sanctuary in the heart of the Ebro valley. Excellent meals and a very helpful host, who can provide details of local walks. Our room was a surprise - downstairs sitting room, upstairs bedroom and bathroom (yes, a real bath to our great joy). Plus a good seating area in the communal dining room, WIFI works well near the kitchen door, and a guided tour of the old mill on offer."

"A Christmas like none other. The valley is a world apart and del Canto is a gem on the riverbank. Though rustic on the outside, the posada is a deceptively modern and well designed hideaway. Pressed linen sheets, cozy blankets, invigorating showers, sleeping loft and lower sitting area, light from above; superb peace and comfort with the music of the river and a toasty fireplace. Meals are careful gourmet preparations with local ingredients. Christmas Eve dinner was beyond words. Javier is an experienced and expert birdwatching guide (and chef). Do not miss your chance to learn from him. "

"Our first Alisdair Sawday booking and if this is the general standard - WOW. Great rural location, delicious food and most importantly delightful, kindhearted and most interesting hosts. Good walks in wonderful countryside."

"We have always used Sawday SPECIAL places to stay. We have stayed in Portugal, Spain, France and the UK. All have been good and a little special but this is, without doubt, the MOST Special. Fantastic food, excellent accommodation, beautiful location, wonderful ambiance. Truly a very special place to stay."
