LauraCan Caiot - With friends

Tranquility, comfort and disconnection

House in a very quiet area but very close to the town square. The house is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. The pool area with shaded dining area allows you to spend quality time outside.

LourdesCan Martinot, la casa del riu - With friends

Weekend in a cozy and very nice place

The house is impeccable, the rooms are very spacious and are cared for in detail. The large living room with kitchen at the same level facilitates the stay and makes it very comfortable. We were able to light the fireplace and have a barbecue and everything was very easy. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped. It is well worth it, and the setting is beautiful, both for stays in autumn and in warmer seasons. The surroundings, with the river and the mountains, make this house a great place to spend a few days with family or friends.

Luis Y LolaCan Martinot, la casa del riu - With the family

The river house, a little paradise...

The house is great, clean, spacious and with all the comforts. Very well equipped with kitchenware and everything you may need. As other references say, the only thing that can be blamed is the number of stairs to enjoy the terrace, the barbecue and the garden. It would not be bad to think about how to connect the kitchen with those spaces. The river saved us from the heat wave. A real paradise!!!

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much, Luis and Lola, for your review. We are glad to know that you have found the little paradise of Albanyà. With reference to the stairs, we take note in case we carry out work on the house in the future. Thank you very much for visiting!

Martinot, La Casa Del RiuCan Martinot, la casa del riu - With the family

EVALUATION OF CAN MARTINOT STAY, ALBANYÀ

The house is very good, very faithful to what is advertised on the web, clean, well equipped, the information to access it is correct, clean and tidy, in short very good. Things to improve: the keys should be identified in some way (colors, etc.), billiards and table football a bit abandoned, the light switch in the room of a single double bed, is difficult to access. You should be better informed about the equipment you are accessing (dishwasher soap, toilet paper, towels, etc). The information to pay for the consumption of firewood seems out of place, considering the rental price, the same so that electricity or water consumption is not taken into account.

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much for your opinion. We are very happy to hear that you liked the house and its equipment. In reference to your suggestions, we'll review them for improvement if it's possible. As for the equipment of the house, it is specified in detail in the "equipment and services" section of the website. If you click on the "i", you will find extra information. This way, you can get organized before your stay. We leave a basket of 20kg of complimentary firewood, although each extra basket of 20kg, has a cost price of 5 € and must be left next to the fireplace. Thank you so much for visiting!

Relaxed stay with family, with children (12 to 17 years old)

The house is as the photos are, no detail is missing, spacious rooms and very cozy house. The place is beautiful with direct access to the river. The children delighted, all day in the water or in the games room with billiards and table football. Very close to the waterfalls in the area. Good communication and very pleasant with Naturaki, they facilitated last minute changes and online entry was very comfortable.
