In summer enjoy the delicate flavour of courgette flowers picked at sunrise in our vegetable garden, and salads with added touches taken from a variety of Mediterranean cuisines. Dishes served during the colder months / In autumn we go mushroom picking on our land just before we cook them to preserve the intense flavour of the forest floor. On colder winter days nothing goes down better …

The Natural Swimming Pool

Summers are hot in the Priorat region so we have built a natural swimming pool or more correctly a biolake. This is an environmentally sustainable basin of biologically filtered bathing water where aquatic plants coexist with micro-organisms replacing the use of chlorine. Summers at Mas Ardèvol are cooler now and guests can dip their feet or themselves in the pool as often as they like. It is a biologically filtered ecosystem. The water is pure and its chemical levels are superior to conventional rivers and lakes. Mas Ardèvol is the only rural house in the Priorat region with a natural swimming pool on site.
