Guestbook comments from the owner
La Pedra could not have been more perfect for our first trip to Spain! After the bustle of Barcelona, we were able to truly relax at this adorable cottage in beautiful surroundings. After each day of exploring the region (with Natalia's wonderful suggestions) we couldn't wait to get back to our cozy house. It would also be perfect for two couples. Natalia is a truly delightful and helpful host. From S&J in Colorado, USA

My husband and I moved to this amazing natural and quiet area near Girona, inland Costa Brava in 2003. I work as an antique furniture restorer and I am finishing my second BA in Art History at the University of Girona. Every day there are opportunities to enjoy nature around us, a strall with our dogs in the forest, picking up wild mushrooms and cooking them. We feel privileged to have discovered this unspoiled paradise.

Natalia Guillamet purchased this cottage in 2006

We built this special and comfortable villa to make this small paradise known among nature and tranquility lovers. This area in Catalunya, Spain has so many unique wonders ranging from great walks, hikes and Natural Parks, medieval villages, amazing gastronomy (locally known as Volcanic cuisine because of the volcanic natural park and special local produce), unique restaurants and also it is close to the Costa Brava beaches and villages. It maintains the beauty of well preserved nature, full of art, history and peaceful environment.

We pay attention to all comfort details to make your stay the most pleasant. In the house, you will find all the small details that make you feel at home while enjoying superb outdoor peaceful garden and environment. We can cook special homemade dinners with local ingredients for you and deliver them at the house. We also offer you guided services for walking, hiking, sightseeing, shopping. We live near the villa so we will always be available for you if you need assistance. We love to share tips of special visits, local restaurants, unique shops to make your vacation the most special! Your privacy, comfort, enjoyment and relaxation are our goals.

A haven of tranquility

  • 5 of 5
Some holidays are enjoyable, but by the time they are over we are ready to return home. That was not the case after our stay at La Pedra Remença. We had such a warm welcome and a relaxing sty that it was a real wrench to leave.

The property is secluded and peaceful, set in the woods on the hillside of the Llemena valley. Although there is plenty to do and see in the local area, on warm days we preferred to simply laze by the pool whilst butterflies (of which there are many) danced through the garden. Natalia, the owner, was a wonderful host who keeps the property well equipped. She kindly recommended and booked a meal for us at a wonderful local restaurant and had plenty of suggestions for walking and sightseeing. If you enjoy bird watching, then you don’t need to move from the garden to see many different species. In fact, many would obligingly flit past the terrace where we sat for our meals, with a spectacular view of the valley.

As I mentioned, we were sorry to leave, but we hope to be back soon. Many thanks to Natalia for a peaceful and rejuvenating break.

a special experience

  • 5 of 5
we stayed at la pedra remenca for the first time and it will certainly not have been the last. what an amazing experience! natalia, the owner, ensures that everything you could want from a holiday is taken care of. the house is beautiful, stylish, well equipped and comfortable. the garden and pool are absolutely lovely, tranquil and despite being well connected to the next village, you feel secluded in the best possible way. we truly enjoyed our stay at the villa! natalia was most helpful making dinner arrangements for us - what a great experience at el siubés - and left no questions unanswered. shopping at the supermercado anna was a lovely experience as well. nice and helpful people all arround. we have truly fallen in love with la garrotxa and will definitely be back - at this absolute gem!

An arboreal, pastoral and sensual delight !

  • 5 of 5
The heady combination of a charming cottage, beautiful location and the dedication of its owner to her guests , sets the scene for a perfect and memorable holiday. The reality surpasses the listing descriptions and photos.
If you can be prised away from this idyll , with it's woodland birdsong , its terrace with panoramic views and the delightful, small pool, you could take an easy drive to Girona, to the pretty coastal villages or a train ride to Barcelona. Alternatively , use the routes recommended for walkers, to fully appreciate the beautiful landscape.
The Cottage is meticulously maintained, well furnished and thoughtfully equipped.
Cooking and savouring, locally sourced produce on the terrace, in the warmth of the evening and sleepy birdcall, never failed to be a magical experience.
Most highly recommended .
N.B. There are 2 shower rooms with basins and W.C.

One of our best holidays

  • 5 of 5
La Pedra Remenca is a wonderful holiday home, with beautiful gardens and pool, in a stunning woodland location. The house is spacious, very comfortable and well equipped, with some beautiful antique furniture. There are fantastic views into the woods and across the valley from the windows at the rear of the house, and particularly from the large, shaded balcony – the perfect place to eat or just sit and relax. When we arrived, the house was spotlessly clean and there were cut flowers from the garden in every room. The garden and private woods are delightful – full of flowers, butterflies and with a small herb and vegetable patch for use by guests. The salt-water pool is very clean and perfect for a family. The overall feel of the property is very relaxing and private, with plenty of space to wander and enjoy the stunning views all around. Natalia, the property owner, is an exceptional host. She has a genuine passion for the local area and her help and advice really helped us to get the most from our holiday. As well as providing an excellent folder of local information, she was more than happy to provide more personalised advice on hikes, activities, restaurants and shops to suit our needs. She made requests and bookings on our behalf and cooked us a delicious meal during our stay. Alongside providing an attentive service, Natalia was very respectful of our privacy, inviting us to contact her by e-mail and always asking in advance if she could visit the property to clean the pool, bring fresh towels etc.. The area around La Pedra Remenca is very beautiful and excellent for outdoor activities. We are an active family with two teenage boys and we found more than enough to do in the area. In particular we enjoyed: Hiking in the zona volcanica Horse-riding – we had two wonderful rides into local mountains with the neighbouring stables. Via Ferrata on the Costa Brava, arranged through Aventura Girona Swimming in local river pools. We were made to feel very welcome in the area, particularly in local shops and restaurants. Caix Can in St Marti de Llemena and the stunning Mas el Siubes, near Les Planes d’Hostoles opened specially in the evenings to accommodate us (most local people eat their main meal at lunchtime). Our holiday at La Pedra Remenca was one of our best and we very much hope to return. We would highly recommend the property.

Beautiful villa in Spain in quiet surroundings ideal for relaxing and exploring Catalonia

  • 5 of 5
La Pedra Remenca is the perfect villa to unwind and relax. It was wonderful to sit quietly and breakfast in the garden watching the butterflies lazily twist in and out of the wild flowers. The villa is in a great location to explore the region, go walking and take in the flora and fauna of Catalonia. Our children enjoyed the pool and taking photographs of the different varieties of moths and butterflies. It was especially nice to see the hummingbird moths enjoy the lavender. Natalia, the owner, really pays attention to detail and this is reflected in the quality of this villa. Superb.

It was a perfect retreat to explore from

  • 5 of 5
The villa, it's gardens and the views from it are fabulous and were far beyond our expectations. Natalia's care and attention to every little detail in the villa and its delightful gardens were second to none. Her book of suggested walks, restaurants and places to explore proved to be invaluable.
The Villa was a perfect retreat to relax in by the pool with a glass of wine after a busy day absorbing all the sights, sounds and senses.
We knew the region was steeped with history, fascinating towns and villages but we had no idea just how beautiful the surrounding countryside would be. The local seasonal produce was excellent. We truly ate like Kings.
The wild life, flora and fauna have to be seen to be believed in this charming unspoilt and hidden part of Spain.
If you enjoy bird watching we observed( In and around the Villa Gardens):
Golden Oriole's, Green Woodpecker, Tree Creeper, Blackcap, Northern Wheatear, Garden Warbler, Bonelli's Warbler and White Throat.
Else where in the region:
Chough, Great Grey Shrike, Red Backed Shrike, Marsh Harrier, White Stork, Little Egret, Cuckoo, Great Reed Warbler, Sedge Warbler and many more old favourites such as Nuthatch, Goldfinch, Siskin etc..
Thank you Natalia for helping make our much needed holiday one to remember.....for ever.
