For years we have practiced home exchange and hospitality is part of our daily life, especially with creative people, respectful of our condition and sensitivity to art and landscape, with special predilection for musicians (we have piano at home).
Our philosophy of life is based on respect for people and nature, quiet life, silence and curiosity for art and culture.

The art of living and sharing!

We stayed three nights at Aurelio’s house and it was really too short to take in all the wonderful aspects of the house and surroundings! The beautiful garden is an enclave of beauty with stunning views over the meandering river Ebro. The interiors are smart and cosy with wonderful details. Aurelio is the kindest man, attentive and thoughtful and very communicative in the way he took the time to show us around and explain all historical details. We would love to return some day!
Staying at the Balco of Miravet was absolutely amazing! We felt very comfortable staying at Aurelio and Joaquims place - they were so kind and ready to help all the time. Aurelio even made chocolate for us and was very thoughtful always asking for our needs and bringing us some local food. The house was beautifully decorated and artsy. If you are looking for a calm and peaceful sanctuary to spend your vacations, here is the place.
The absolute PERFECT place to escape the world! Tranquil, Magical, Beautiful. Aurelio is a lovely host that is super hospitable, very kind and very creative. Fresh organic items where left for us - He even made us homemade chocolate!???? The space is incredibly unique and the perfect location for views, a small walk to the castle, and a small walk to the riverfront for food and drinks. The perfect romantic stay. We wanted to stay forever! Could not fault in any way, would HIGHLY recommend to anyone wanting a quiet getaway ????
Aurelio exceeded expectations. I had been to Miravet before but I have a much better understanding of not only the history of the village now, but of things to do and local life and it is thanks to Aurelio and Joaquim’s excellent hospitality. And the views from their place, like staring into a live painting. Thank you both!
Our time at Aurelio and Joaquim's was our favorite out of a 2 1/2 week European trip. The home was lovely and inviting with a delightful little terrace looking out over the Ebro River. The town itself was enchanting as well and breakfasts with Aurelio and Joaquim on their porch were a true delight with such enjoyable conversation. From start to finish Aurelio was a huge help in planning our trip and was always quick to reply with tips and information. He went out of his way to help. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. We would love to return and stay longer and enjoy the amazing hospitality of Aurelio and Joaquim. Their home is a true gem!
What an amazing place with a fantastic host in a beautiful part of Catalunya , I’ll be recommending to all my friends
This is one of the best places I have ever stayed.. the beauty is spectacular the hosts are so kind and friendly and they make the stay completely unbelievable. The house is in the most perfect location .. so arty, peaceful and quiet and beautiful. The village is outstanding... if you love authentic beautiful places where you can appreciate the beauty of nature and of all the gorgeous buildings in the village... then this place is just for you. The river is beautiful and the castle... I saw some great birds and wildlife when I was staying here. I had such a great time here I would love to come back to stay with the hosts again ...they made my stay so brilliant.
We absolutely loved our stay here. Aurelio and Joachim were fantastic hosts, full of local knowledge and interesting conversations. The accommodation was absolutely beautiful in terms of position, character, decor and tranquility! What a perfect home away from home, a great place to get away from the stresses of daily life. We hope to return some day...
Aurelio's place is amazing: location is outstanding, inside design is splendid, the view from the balcony is stunning and magnificent, atmosphere around is peaceful and quiet (except of wild nature sounds). Aurelio is a very nice and interesting person with a great knowledge and experience. It was really nice to have a chat with him and his partner at the breakfast's table. Don't miss this place!
If you are staying in Miravet you must stay at the red rock house. It is wonderful, creative and a perfect location. Aurelio and Quim were outstanding hosts and we would definatly recommend

“La Sixtina”

“La Sixtina” is the guest room with a balcony onto the landscape, along with the bathroom, a dining room-office, a covered terrace, and an exit to the garden.

An entire apartment floor with total privacy and an independent entrance from the rest of the house.

The bed is king size with cotton linen and wool blankets.

The masthead has two ‘ignudis’ by Michelangelo, painted by Joaquim, representing antagonisms; beauty, intelligence and eros turning their backs on envy and selfishness.

The House of the Red Rock

The house was designed by Joaquim, author of the restoration and works of art of Palau. It is integrated into the landscape and recovers the appearance and volume of the three houses that formerly occupied the place, lost as a result of the Battle of the Ebro (1938).

The concept was to make a house sustainable and energy efficient, taking advantage of recycled materials, doors, windows and traditional reeds.

The balance of the indoor ecosystem of the house is vital. That is why we condition and ventilate it according to the outside temperature, avoiding opening windows (with mosquito nets) when it is hotter.

The natural rock of the mountain regulates the temperature inside the house. We also have solar panels for hot water and wood stove to heat the main hall.

The garden is a real oasis with the paradiso fig tree and the ecological pond.
