We had an amazing time at Mothers Garden with our young family (4 and 8 yrs old). Martin and Maggie are fantastic hosts and our kids loved the property with the animals and surroundings! Il Priorat is a great area if you are looking for tranquility and an area that is only 2 hours from Barcelona, yet feels totally undiscovered a true oasis away from modern (and busy) live.

We will definitely return!
