Overview

If you want comfort and privacy in a tranquil country setting, within comfortable reach of the highlights of northern Catalonia, look no further.

Your three-bedroomed villa is set in quiet countryside, just 100 metres from a well-preserved old village. It comprises the lion's share of an impressive dwelling with an upstairs apartment belonging to the same owner that is left strictly unoccupied whenever holidaymakers are here, thus guaranteeing your total privacy in house and gardens.

The village has no facilities, but it's nice to wander round. There is a simple grocery shopping and a little bar which opens sporadically in summertime but this plans to close in 2016 (owner will retire). For eating out, there's a good restaurant 4 minutes' drive away, in a small village with a bar, bakery and butcher's.

The villa is pleasantly informal, furnished in an eclectic style by the artist owner and hung with a mixed assortment of pictures.

We especially liked the very spacious and imaginatively decorated open-plan main room, and the way it communicates naturally with the lawned gardens.

The house scores high on facilities. The three bedrooms are comfortable, attractive and have a bathroom each (although only one of them is en suite). 

A stepped, mosaic swimming pool allows for delicious cooling-off and enjoyment during summer months and there are sunloungers (six of them) by the pool and in the gardens. The pool's nocturnal illumination is automatic.

The house is an excellent choice all year round with central heating as well as an open fireplace (logs included in the rental).

This is one of the most rewarding locations in Spain and excursion options from the property make for a thoroughly complete holiday. You can choose from cultural visits to villages and towns, including Dali’s castle museum in the town where he was born and died; natural wonders such as the amazing volcanoes of La Garrotxa; boating, swimming and walks at Banyoles Lake, and good beaches on the Costa Brava.

Distances to places of interest are normally an item we list under the Location tab, but in this case they bear underlining as they are so conveniently situated.

Here are some of the highlights:

Mare de Deu del Mont at Cabanelles, a magical mountain from whose summit you can see virtually the entire province of Girona. It is surmounted by a sanctuary, destination of local pilgrimages in March and April from nearby villages such as Crespià, Beuda, Besalú, Cabanelles: 10 minutes.

Dali's Castle Museum, where the inimitable artist is also buried, in his home village of Figueres on the verge of the Pyrenees: 15 minutes.

Banyoles Lake, from where water is channelled through through the town of the same name, watering the market gardens of Sant Esteve monastery: 15 minutes.

Besalú, an atmospheric medieval town on the banks of the River Fluvià: 20 minutes.

In Sant Miquel de Campmajor, Bosc Can Ginebreda is another enchanted wood, this time thanks to the free-standing sculptures by artist, Xicu Cabanyes. Xicu has his studio right in the very woods, and you’ll also find an interesting restaurant there: 30 minutes.

Handsome Girona cathedral town, with its ancient Jewish quarter (and international airport): 35 minutes

Beaches of the Costa Brava and well-preserved ruins of the Greek town of Ampurias (Empúries): just over 30 minutes.

At Santa Pau, the marvel of the Garrotxa volcanic zone, where you can get right to the craters of the (extinguished) volcanoes. Or go horseriding in the unique beechwoods of the Faigeda d'en Jordà, whose autumn leaf fall is an event in itself: 45 minutes.

Fantastic house. Had everything we needed. Pool is also great. Lovely spot with great views. Laurence and Orla were extremely welcoming and ensured we felt at home. Recommend Besalu for a visit, the Dali museum in Figures and Roses for the beach."

Carol | August | 2015

Excellent large house for a big family group. Comfortable,attractive. Beautiful views from the house and garden over village and nearby mountains. 3 minor improvements would be :addition of bbq tools;sharper kitchen knives; better high chair. The high chair supplied was nor suitable for a baby - it had no means of securing child in the chair . This does need to be changed. Owners were delightful and friendly and were happy for us to stay most of Friday while they cleaned house for next visitors."

Rustical Update

Property manager confirmed that high chair is standard size. The other points should be improved for 2016, including barbecue tools.

Jon | August | 2014

It was a great quiet villa good for groups. The large shaded terrace was ideal and the massive lounge meant that all three couples could spend time together as a group. The kitchen was well equipped and the property was generally well looked after. It was easy to find coming from both France or Barcelona and an a great base to explore the region. The owners were extremely friendly and very helpful."

Anna | July | 2014

Is an exiting house filled with art, books and family games, comfortabel couches and beds, a cozy and cool living room (July), a very well equiped kitchen and even a bathroom with a chair and beautiful plant. Well maintained garden, refreshing swimingpool. Free view over the small village and surounding hills. Superb hiking close to the property. Very helpful and caring owners. Peace and nature with beach and city life on a short distance Wonderful quiet and peaceful resort."
