Interaction with guests
Our life philosophy as creatives leads us to share our home with other artists from around the world. We practice the home exchange and also hosting with creative minds.
We like to treat our guests as the other friends. The most rewarding experience is precisely the coexistence and exchange thoughts and concerns.
The basis of a good meeting is mutual respect and tolerance. If you want silence and isolation definitely you are going to enjoy this place. The apartment of guests is independent of the rest of the house and can come and go without having to interact with each other.
Think about the idea of coming to visit friends and to let yourselves be seduced by a territory that definitely will surprise you.
Other things to note

Miravet is also known for its famous pottery, artisan tradition that still thrives; the old ferry, last living vestige of navigation in the Ebro (without motor), the historical facts of the Battle of the Ebro (1936 ), even visible in the ruin of some houses of the old town, and the footprint of the painter Joaquim Mir, who's his work is present in the Reina Sofía Museum and others around the world.
But above all it is a paradise for canoeing practice!
