A large old, village house with spectacular views over the vineyards, olive groves and Montsant escarpment.
The house is in a quiet village, so we ask guests to respect the neighbours and not to make excessive noise.
Outstanding home in the Priorat region. The house is spacious enough for multiple families, has an incredible view of the mountains and countryside from a large patio, and in close proximity to any number of quality wine producers (if that's why you're here). The village makes you feel like you stepped back in time by several decades (possibly a century), and that is exactly what contributes to the magic of this place. Check-in was easy. I was greeted by Angel and her daughter (who speaks fluent English). They walked me through the house (all three floors) and then escorted me to the local grocery store and restaurant in town, offering to make a reservation for me if I needed. There is little in the small village, requiring you to head into Falset (25 minutes) for proper groceries. But you will love the scenery of the drive. Come prepared with hiking gear, as the landscape is breathtaking and worth exploring on foot. I will absolutely look to stay here again on my next visit.
We had a wonderfull stay in this house. The pictures don't do justice what you are about to experience. The location is perfect to discover La Priorat. The house is cosy, spacious and doesn't feel like a holidayhome, it feels like home.In the village is a public pool, lots of time our children were the only one in it. The village itself feels like time stood still for a very long time. A perfect place to stay, enjoy the beautifull surroundings, the Priorat wine and the relaxed spanish lifestyle.
In March of 2017, my party of 5 stayed 3 nights at Cal Millo in La Vilella Alta, Priorat, Spain. It was a fabulous experience. The village has a population of about 100 people, a small restaurant, and a shop. The village seems to be made entirely of stone, both streets and houses. It's hard to find information on when the village was built ("many, many years ago"), but it looks to be several hundred years old. The one warning I would give is that Cal Millo and La Vilella Alta are not appropriate for anyone who has trouble getting around. The house is old and not built with modern norms of accessibility. And the streets are steep and narrow. The house itself is the family's weekend and vacation home, so it has that feel: fully stocked kitchen, books, games. It has a spectacular view over the nearby hills. The location is excellent if you're interested in wine, hiking, or visiting small villages. About 4 miles away is the village and beautiful monastery ruins of Escala Dei, with lots of options for hiking. We visited the nearby villages of Falset, Gratallops, and Escala Dei, but there are many more. There seem to be dozens of wineries nearby, some with restaurants or tours. The lodging, wine, and food in the region have spectacular price-performance. You need an auto in the region, the smaller the better for the narrow, steep, and winding streets. Even though we all drive with manual transmissions, we were glad we rented a vehicle with an automatic. The people in the village were uniformly friendly and engaging. Ask at the restaurant for a tour of the church. As for the airbnb owner Alice, she was incredibly helpful and friendly. The information she provides on the house, neighborhood, and village, both before the trip and in the house, is comprehensive. When we needed to talk with her she was available. (She lives in Barcelona.) When we forgot a coat in La Vilella Alta, Alice even managed to get it transported to Barcelona. (Not a regular service!) Alice's contact in La Vilella Alta is Angels, who is also extremely helpful, friendly, and informative. Five stars all around!
Hemos estado encantados en casa de Alice. El priorat es precioso y poder disfrutar de sus paisajes en una casa de la zona es fantástico!!! La casa es muy amplia y acogedora, tal y como se aprecia en las fotos! En noviembre hace frio y la verdad es que la calefacción a funcionada excelente!!! Es ideal para ir con niños! Lo recomendamos!!
