Pau is a lovely peaceful little village - essentially Catalan, but with an interesting mix of other nationalities to make it unique in this area. We have the mountains on our doorstep, with marked walks to St Pere de Rodas, 'Creu Blanca', and many other routes. The nearest beach is 10 minutes by car, and the country lanes are perfect for cycling. Eating is another adventure...!
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Most prompt and professional response I've ever received from an airbnb host. Nigel and Liz were so accommodating with my last minute travel plans and my late arrival. So so sweet. Made me feel right at home.
I had a wonderful stay with Nigel. The house and room were very neat and comfortable. The location is excellent. There is no shortage of things to do during the day as Pau is only 10 minutes by bus to Figures and Rosas. Nigel is very helpful in suggesting interesting events and locations in the surrounding area. After a long day visiting the beach or Dali museum, you can relax and enjoy a quiet dinner set against the rolling hills of Catalonia.
Nigel and Liz are a very lovely couple who share the beautiful Casa Rural with their warmly welcomed guests..
The charming little Cottage is in the heart of the old and well preserved calm and peaceful village Pau.
We felt very comfortable from the beginning when we were introduced into the house and our room. Everything was well prepared, clean and well organised but still there was a cozy personal atmosphere.
Also we enjoyed the little chats with our lovely hosts a lot and would have missed a few hidden gems of the area without their recommendations!
They are uncomplicated open trustworthy and unobtrusive nice people.
A big and lovingly prepared breakfast included in the price. We were served coffee and tea, fresh orange juice, pastry, fruits, joghurt, granola, english marmelade and spanish ham..
All in all we are very happy that we luckily found accomodation at Liz' and Nigel's and we can really recommend their place if you wanna explore a bit the area around Cadaquès..
This gorgeous village and wonderful dwelling were just what i was after. Conveniently located between Figueres and the tourist mecca of Roses (and Cadeques) everything was accessible, even for those without car.
If you wan access to everything by day and escape by night, then Pau is the place to be. Nigel and Liz were wonderful hosts and I could've further extended my stay way beyond the extra day I did. I stayed four nights in total.
I really enjoyed my stay at Liz's and Nigel's place. I stayed at blue room, which seems to be perfect for a solo traveller. And the fact that the price included a well prepared proper breakfast – superb. There might not be much happening in the village itself (which is what I was actually looking for) but the surroundings have so much to see and do you are bound to run out of time to see it all. Nigel and Liz are both very welcoming hosts and I only wish I could've stayed longer than just one night.
I had the most wonderful time at Nigel and Liz's beautiful home! Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Liz as she was in the UK, but Nigel was such a terrific host, so friendly and helpful. Pau is an amazing little village and I would highly, highly recommend staying there to anyone.
I loved my stay with Liz and Nigel so much that I stayed an extra day. They are both very friendly hosts, not only making me feel welcome but including me in village life. Liz is a great cook and I awoke one morning to fresh baked bread for breakfast. The room is charming, clean and has everything you'd need. I never would have come to Pau, which is a very small village, if not for this accommodation and I'm very glad I got to see this corner of Catalonia. Pau was perfectly located to take in both Figueres and the beaches without staying at either.
