The farm with 11th-century origins is perched on the mountain side and has breathtaking views: on a clear day you can see to Ibiza. Buildings ramble and the garden is a joy: herbs and flowers burst from pots, the old stone wash-house shades the fish pond, orange groves spread as far as the eye can see. Warm-hearted Joaquina, a historian, runs the farm on organic lines and have a friendly team to care for the guests. It’s a wonderfully inviting little place, simple, rustic, relaxing. Guests have four charming rooms in the riu rau where raisins were once stored, and a delightful living area in a further building shared by all – comfy sofas, modern paintings, agrarian implements on the walls, a gorgeous open fireplace in the corner. Self-caterers have an equally rustic studio-apartment and a two-storey house, the latter with a Moorish oven, each with a wood-burning stove. Go for a picnic, the food is a wonder – eggs from the hens, salads from the garden, fresh sorbets, homemade pastries, gilthead bream – and the pool overlooks the sea.
