Words cannot describe this placid, beautiful place deep in the Spanish countryside–a converted watermill alongside the Ebro River. Javier and Valva are great hosts, terrific chefs, and very informative of the local sights and walks. Javier is a master birder, and I highly recommend a half day or full day birding excursion under his guidance. His enthusiasm for birds and conservation are contagious, and he is inspirational in his love for spotting and sharing bird identification and behavior. He takes visitors into several distinct habitats, so you get to see a variety of species. On our trip we saw over 50 species in a half day, and heard another five or so by ear. Really a great time.

No es la primera vez, ni la segunda, que disfrutamos de este maravilloso lugar y a buen seguro que tampoco será la última, porque este su lugar y su buena gente, Valvanera, Javier y ahora, con la incorporación de Roque, nos siguen fascinando. Seguimos disfrutando y aprendiendo como siempre. Gracias a todos por habernos hecho sentir tan cómodos y a gusto y hasta pronto, que volveremos a seguir disfrutando con vuestra compañía y aprendiendo de la naturaleza y de aves.

We have just returned from northern Spain which included a 4 night stay in Molina del Canto. The welcome was friendly, the food was good and the room spacious and comfortable. Above all the location is great and ideal for exploring this canyon country. We took a bird watching trip. Javier was really good at spotting the birds and he is really knowledgeable. The highlight was watching 30 Griffin Vultures diving down and then taking off again.

What a wonderful part of our Spanish holiday. A magical location, lovely room and setting and a warm welcome from Javier and family. We also had an amazing day out with Javier exploring this incredible natural environment – unique and beautiful. We were only sorry we couldn’t stay longer!

The converted mill is a gorgeous place to stay, comfortable rooms and delicious food. It’s very rural with wonderful walks close by. We went birding with Javier and had a wonderful day seeing areas we would not have found and around 30 species of birds we would not have spotted, including Montagu’s Harrier which is extinct in the UK He is very knowledgeable, personable and interesting. The tour included a picnic lunch – table and chairs provided! Highly recommended.
