  • Didac is a rich person to meet, with a very committed and inspiring project. He listened attentively to my needs and suggested a tent site that perfectly suited my requirements. The contact with nature is very strong, and the location is magnificent, with immersion in the forest and rivers. On the home site, there's an outdoor space where you can meet people and animals, like the free-roaming goats that roam the entire property. Thank you Didac

  • Magnificent setting, competition tents, and an enthusiastic host. Nature, volcanoes, a small river 5 minutes away, some beautiful villages in the vicinity. And a great cause, the ecovillage project among others. I almost forgot, rich encounters with other gampers who don't come to Didac's by chance.

  • Very nice stay, far from everything and close to magnificent rivers... very beautiful region and great project to come.

    Something to recharge your batteries...

    L'indret és espectacular i en Dídac una persona molt agradable i generosa. L'ecovila és un exemple d'un estil de vida alternatiu que prioritza el contacte i respecte a la naturalesa que la rodeja. Hi ha molts camins preciososos per fer senderisme i accés directe als gorgs frescos i nets del riu Gurn. Les instal-lacions a l'ecovila són bàsiques però les necessàries i els projectes que segueixen en curs apunten a un esforç constant de millora i progrés. Esperem poder tornar aviat! Gràcies!

    The place is spectacular and Didac is a very kind and generous person. The ecovillage is an example of an alternative way of life that favors contact with and respect for the natural world around it. There are many beautiful hiking trails and direct access to the cool, clean gorges of the Gurn River. The ecovillage's facilities are basic but necessary, and the projects underway reflect a constant effort to improve and progress. We hope to be back soon! We hope to be back soon!

  • Access to the site not at all adapted to the cyclotourists, uneven way with very strong unevenness by place and 2 passages to be gay, 1,5km of galley!
    Site with a beautiful environment and views. Didac took the time to present us a part of the site and his project.
    Dry toilets well arranged.
    We did our toilet at the end of the day in the nearby river (refreshing and pleasant) because the shower does not allow any privacy and the solar panels were not working.
    No access allowed to the inhabitant's house contrary to what is mentioned in the presentation.
    Shelter with kitchenette, table and chairs, very nice.
    We paid 37€ for 2 people with personal tents. We don't understand this excessive price !!!
    Thanks to Didac for the beers which compensated for the mishaps of access to the site and the problem of solar shower.

  • I had a dream stay in the future ecolieu of Didac with my 2 children, aged 5 and 7. The place is peaceful and invites to rest, to exchange and to disconnect/reconnect with nature. The river and the natural pools (3 minutes walk) are beautiful, the water is transparent and the area is not very crowded. The kids loved the river, the goats, the frogs, the trampoline and the swings in the trees. Finally Didac is fascinating but I won't tell you more... a character to discover :) We only spent 3 days (2 nights) there and it was too short... Plan to take everything you will need because once you are there you don't want to go back down and take the car. This mini stay has deeply renewed me. Thank you again for everything Didac! Chloé

  • Great place to explore, really unique in its kind. Didac is very nice and has a lot of things to tell. The small tent offers a beautiful view in a soothing setting.

  • We had a great stay at Didac's place who was very welcoming and friendly. The setting cut off from the world with access to the river is exceptional!

  • We spent an atypical week at Didac's with our children. An exceptional place, cosmopolitan, isolated, a warm and benevolent host. We enjoyed all our exchanges. We were able to enjoy the natural pools in the river, the quiet place, we will remain marked by the experience. Practical information: the camp is 20-30mn walk away but Didac can propose to take the camping stuff up/down in 4x4. Bring a stock of food, little expenses, and external batteries for phone.

  • Very beautiful framework to be exiled, a very beautiful place where one can be disoriented, Didac is available, impeccable stay!

  • We had a great time.
    Beautiful place where reigns a beautiful serenity.
    Very welcoming and accommodating host.
    I highly recommend it for a total change of scenery in a simple environment and cut the world.

  • We spent a few great days at Didac's place. We loved the spirit, the discussions with Didac and this immersion in nature, it was wonderful! The kids loved the animals and they still tell us that it was great at Didac's! :) Moreover Didac is really nice, and a great welcome, thanks again!

  • The stay has been wonderful. Didac's accommodation is simply amazing and he is a very kind and close host.

  • Didac is a fantastic host and the location is absolutly unique. We also had lots of fun with the animals and the river nearby.

  • Unforgettable experience, a must if you are looking for a small paradise, disconnected from the world, or rather, terribly connected to the essential.

    First of all, we were very well welcomed by our host, who took the time to come and pick us up at the parking lot, to show us his land, his old farm (very old even, but just renovated), his numerous pets, so endearing, and his project of ecological farm and autonomous community.
    After having set up our camp on one of the many sites + or - provided for this purpose (either close to the house, or more withdrawn, with a little push on the calves, it's your choice), we went to explore the surroundings.

    On the menu over several half-days and always starting from the site :
    - apprehension of the ground (with, in the heights, terraces which open on the valley and allow to observe the superb lights at the end of the day),
    - descent to the river below the house (so pure, with many natural and isolated pools, ideal to refresh oneself, we saw newts there),
    - visit of the Salt de Sallent (waterfall of more than 100mtr, without much water at the time of our passage, but that one can see from the top, the bottom, the medium, always the mouth open),
    - hike on the plateau of Freixeneda (magnificent views on Catalonia, and the Bores, these volcanic "labyrinths" of a beautiful height and which it is easy to explore)
    - climb to the unguarded refuge of Santa Magdalena del Mont and to Puigsacalm (a mythical summit for the Catalans and perched at 1514 mtr of altitude), if a mountain type hike, with a difference in altitude, does not put you off (approx. 1h30-2h easy to climb to the refuge)

    We didn't see everything of course, but if you wish, Didac will be able to show you all the places that are worth a visit.

    On the other hand, we were able to spend some time to exchange (in any language!) with the few other people present during our stay, and of course with Didac whose culture and ideas are an integral part of the experience in our opinion, and a great good to our little brains calibrated and crammed in this crazy world ;-)

    Thanks Didac for this great experience !
    Hi i Anarquia :)

  • A very nice place to connect with nature.
    Thank you very much, Didac!

  • Fantastic stay. Amazing place the mountains are beautiful. Didac is a very nice interesting man. I highly recommend a stay here

  • Perfect for resting. Walk along the river from home. Swimming pools in a turquoise river. And Didac, a charming person.
