About Gill Colverson

Chris and Gill welcome you to Casa Nova d'en Borra in Catalunya.

Here we take pride in providing a comfortable, well presented house for you to truly relax in, to feel at home.

We made the move from Edinburgh, Scotland to Catalunya; from owning and working in our restaurant, Le Cafe St. Honore, central Edinburgh for more than 15 years, to renovating and refurbishing this Catalan masia and estate.

Life is never dull here - there is much to explore, to discover, people to meet, foods to try, guests to cater for, markets and festivals to attend, theatres, museums and exhibitions, the masia and grounds to be managed, sunshine to be enjoyed.

We look forward to welcoming you to this fabulous place.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 12 friends, including children, who periodically go on vacations together for 2 weeks, and do some biking and lots of eating. This house is as comfortable as shown on the web page and worked very well for us.

The spaces are large enough for a large group, and comfortably furnished. There are enough different places, that you are not confined to your room if you want a little privacy. The outdoor eating area was great. The internet and TV and other facilities worked well.

The hosts were extremely accomodating and friendly. The grounds well kept. The area nearby is quite pretty for both walking close by, as well as for road biking.

Très belle maison dans un coin tranquille

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons réservés cette superbe maison une semaine en juillet 2011 pour 17 personnes (4 familles). Chaque famille avait sa salle de bains, nous avions beaucoup d'espace dans la maison, une cuisine bien équipée, les chambres bien aménagées et les propriétaires très sympas, nous avions d'ailleurs commandé les repas des adultes pour notre arrivée du samedi soir et c'était parfait. Le coin est très tranquille car c'est la seule maison aux alentours de ce bois (nous avons même fait un peu de VTT dans le bois en partant directement de la maison) tout en étant pas très loin des commerces, les propriétaires habitent juste à côté et sont très accessibles, ils nous ont même fait profiter de leur potager !!! Le seul bug de cette semaine a été la météo mais personne n'y pouvait rien.
Un grand merci à Chris et Gill pour cet agréable séjour et nous recommandons vivement cette location à toutes les personnes qui souhaitent avoir de l'espace, une maison très bien équipée, un coin tranquille et de très bonnes relations avec les propriétaires.

Car: recommended

We are situated in the N.E. corner of Spain, a 40 minute drive from the French border, 15 minutes south of Girona city centre, 10 minutes from Girona airport, 25 minutes from the coast & within an hour of Barcelona. Travel is easy and direct.

Private, secluded, yet not isolated, this location allows you to enjoy all aspects of Catalunya from countryside to coastal and village to city.

The masia is situated between two villages, (2 & 3km), with a large variety of shops, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, activities, culture etc in the área ...... and only a 15 minute drive right into Girona's charming city centre.

Days can be as active or as lazy as you wish - travel, explore or enjoy the house, pool and estate, end the day with a great family bbq.

( Ideally we are a 10 minute drive to Girona Airport, but at the masia we have little awareness of the airplanes as they land and take off, as we are to the west of the airport and the flight path is to the north and south.)

Paris to Girona rail travel, TGV and AVE.

Our closest beaches, approx 25 minute drive are Platja d'Aro and S'Agaro - and drive a little further to the delights of Tamariu, Llafranc and Begur.

Our closest golf courses -

PGA Catalunya, a 15 minute drive, and Franciac Pitch and Putt for some family fun. Golf Girona and Golf d'Aro, both approx 25 minute drive.

We can recommend the charm of Girona, with it's excellent shops, restaurants, tapas, culture & markets; Costa Brava coves & beaches; family fun at a Platja d'Aro waterpark; many golf courses; medieval village of Besalu; Salvador Dali Museums; :Emporda Greek and Roman ruins: ES F1 GP weekend; crafts & festivals; Thermal Spa at Santa Coloma de Farners; walking; cycling; the cosmopolitan streets of Barcelona within easy reach.
