Description

Fisherman's Cottage (Casa Pescador) is a stone built property on a small working olive farm on the banks of the River Ebro.

The cottage is located just outside the pretty village of Benifallet, in the heart of rural Catalunya. The cottage has been fully renovated to a high standard and combines comfort with character and seclusion.

Fishing

The river Ebro is world-renowned for its catfish and carp fishing.  Here on the lower reaches of the river is a great opportunity to experience wild, unspoilt parts of the river, with little or no fishing pressure and the chance to fish when you want and how you want.  This is an alternative to more commercial ventures further upriver, and offers amazing value.

If you stay at the Casa Pescador, you have your own generous sized swim 20m from the house.  This is ideal for 2 anglers who want independence of mind and the opportunity to fish in the way that you want.

Here there is no timetable, no restrictions, no guide (but plenty of free advice).

Enjoy a BBQ with the rods out, experience the silence and majestic night sky, waiting for a bite …  Sleep when you want, fish when you want, pure freedom awaits …

The Swim

Spacious and comfortable with plenty of level areas for chairs, table, even bivvy and bedchairs if you want. Plenty of overhead cover so you can always find shade, and nicely sheltered from the prevailing breezes. 

Depending on river level you have 10-18 ft directly in front of you as far out as you want to cast.  The river here is about 250 yards across with a steady flow in the middle decreasing towards the margins.

The Fisherman's Cottage includes:

Go through the front door and you enter a large open plan lounge/dining area.  A high vaulted ceiling, feature stone columns and black iron beams give a mixture of character and space.

In the lounge is a cast iron woodburning stove (great for cozy winter evenings!). There is a large sofa (converts to a double bed), 32” LCD TV and DVD player. There is a dining table and chairs which can be used inside or outside as you wish. Window with river view. Through the lounge window is a lovely view of the river.

The lounge leads into the kitchen area. The kitchen is fitted with a range of wall and base units and a marble worktop. There is a fridge/freezer and gas cooker/hob. From the kitchen area two doors lead to:

  • Shower room fitted with large walk-in shower, wash basin and WC, 2 towel rails, mirror, extractor fan.

  • Bedroom with twin beds, high vaulted ceiling with feature stone columns and iron beams, dark wood furniture and a view of the river through the window.
