The space
Valdara has three types of accommodation – the Guest House & the Rustic Woolshed & Self- Contained RV’s or Caravans.

Your hosts provide self check in instructions via email no later than 24 hours before your arrival, from our past experiences a lot of guests like the additional privacy, peace and serenity for the Valdara get away.

Fully self- contained guest house – sleeps a couple - equipped with a pot belly fire to keep you warm in the winter (firewood is provided) if you prefer the open fire atmosphere. We provide a mosquito net over the bed incase those pesty bugs are around and there is also mosie coils and bug repellant if needed. Remember we are in the country, so there might be moths, bugs and of course weather dependent there will be mud and dust.

In the fridge we will leave a bottle of drinking water and some butter, home made jam and artisan bread.

The kitchenette is equipped with microwave, fridge, gas cook top, pots, pans, dishware and glassware. Basic cooking ingredients – oil, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, coffee, long life milk.

There is a charcoal bbq on the deck (please check fire regulations).

We are very grateful for our wonderful natural environment we live in and ask our guests to please respect it whilst visiting, water is liquid gold so if you can be conscious of your usage. We kindly ask that you turn off the HVAC unit when you are not in the cottage. We re cycle, kitchen scraps go to the chickens, and the rubbish is sorted to rubbish and re cycle (glass separate) it would be greatly appreciated if you can leave your rubbish accordingly.

When wandering around the farm, please shut the gates behind you.
Coming soon - Recently the Valdara team have been putting together some “bespoke packages” for their guests who would like to learn more about the Pyrenees region and all it has to offer.
