We have stayed here twice and are already planning our return.
The house ideal for a holiday where a group of friends or family can meet up for a relaxing holiday together. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, mainly with en suite facilities. Each of the three floors has a small kitchen and sitting room inside and there are terraces outdoors for relaxation. And get togethers. In summer months there is a swimming pool.
The main attraction of Cal Carrater however is the care and dedication of the owner/chef, Jordi. He and his step son Mark made the holidays we have had there. We now feel that we are not just guests, but friends. Jordi produces in a seemingly effortless way the most amazing food on this planet, course after course of fresh local food, sometimes surprising, always beautifully presented, and utterly delicious, he is a real craftsman. He has a wine room rather than a list, and has the same level of care in the labelling and racking of his wine and he loves sharing his obvious enjoyment of wine collection with his guests. All his wines are very reasonably priced.
Breakfast is a table groaning with home grown egg tortilla (Jordi keeps hens), cheese, local hams, breads, fruit, juices and cake, and is presented beautifully. Jordi speaks little English, he employs Mark to help out and do the interpreting. Mark has the same patience and friendliness as Jordi and they make a great team. They will organise wine tours, star gazing, and point you in the right direction for whatever holiday persuits you are interested in.
Although the area is peaceful, for us townies ( from Newcastle upon Tyne) there are countryside noises such as cockerels, dogs barking and church bells to contend with in the wee small hours, however after the first couple of nights these are not an issue, and in every other respect this is the most relaxing place to be.
