Tortella Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 tastefully designed rural apartments perfect for families, groups & couples

Can Cruanyes has been recently restored and renovated into 3 individually styled apartments (1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom). The preservation of characteristic stone walls and vaulted ceilings allow the blending of old world charm with modern comfort and convenience.

Can Cruanyes extends over 20 acres of woodland and paddocks which also host the spacious non overlooked swimming pool. Here you can swim or sunbathe surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountain peaks and forests. The child friendly garden with swings, sandpit, football goal, swing ball and table tennis are great fun for both the young and the young at heart!

Each apartment has its own private terrace where you can dine alfresco while enjoying a glass of local wine under the stars. The BBQ and picnic area enjoy views from all sides, whether up to the mountain peaks above, down to the valley or across to the charming stone house.

Guestbook comments from the owner
'We loved the relaxed, peaceful atmosphere at Can Cruanyes.... we were able to instantly feel at home thanks to Donny and Siobhans' welcoming hospitality. The farm is beautiful, surrounded by mountains and yet with all the modern comforts you could need and a fabulous pool. If it weren't for the amazing surrounding villages, volcanoes, waterfalls, forests and coastline to explore i could have happily not left the farm at all for the entire week! We would highly reccomend Can Cruanyes and look forward to returning ourselves again!'

Calm, beautiful and perfect place to rest.

  • 5 of 5
The house is located a couple of kilomiters outside the neares town (which is a small village) so you need a car. And ther is no air-condition. But thats all you have to worry about. The appartment is clean, the pool perfect on a hot day, ther is nothing that will disturb you on our holliday. The manager is friendly and helpfull. If you want a lazy, quiet holliday, or like to hike in the mountains, this is the place to be!

Cozy and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5
My family (myself, husband and daughters 9 and 11) spent a lovely Easter weekend at Can Cruanyes. When we arrived on a dark and rainy evening, the owner (Donny) was there to greet us with a fire lit in the wood stove (greatly appreciated!). The apartment was spotlessly clean, well-outfitted, and was just perfect for our needs. The outdoor setting is incredible, and I don't think I would ever tire of waking up to that spectacular view. It was a bit too chilly for the pool, but I'm sure that would be a good reason for a return visit in the summer! We had been seeking a place to stay close to friends who have a nearby home, and it was less than 5 minutes away from their place. We all loved going into the little village of Tortella, and particularly enjoyed watching a FC Barcelona soccer match with the locals at "The Casino" (town restaurant/pub). We also had a fantastic meal at Restaurant Pont Vell in nearby Besalu, which is a beautiful medieval village 10 minutes away. We hope to return to the area to see our friends in the future, and will definitely plan to stay at Can Cruanyes again---thank you!!!

As a Dutch, I should review my opinion with respect to holiday destination. So far it was Sweden as the utmost in friendly people, nature, good feeling and accommodation (clean, well-maintained). But now after having visited Can Cruanyes, I am lost!
I feel desperately now. Who is the best and what to do next time?
The only way to solve this problem is to visit your place again, I hope as soon as possible.

Great place to stay in Catalunya!

  • 5 of 5
Can Cruanyes proved to be the best base for exploring the Pyrenees & the Garrotxa area, and a very comfortable place to return to in the evenings - we started to refer to it as 'home' on the 2nd day of our stay :) The house is in a very quiet location, surrounded by forested hills & mountains, but it takes only 15 minutes to get to Olot and about 35 to Girona - so we were never too far from civilization when we needed it! The apartment was always very warm (very important for a stay in winter) - central heating works very fast, and a fireplace (wood, matches etc were provided) was a real treat. The bedrooms, the kitchen and the living room had all the facilities listed on the website, all was in good working order. The owner, Donny, was very helpful and answered all the questions that we had, and gave recommendations on eating out in the neighbouring villages. Oh, and he had prepared a nice welcome pack on our arrival, which was gladly and instantly consumed! For those unfamiliar with Spain, be prepared that almost everything is closed for a very long siesta - longer than in other mediterranean countries, sometimes from 13-00 to 17-00 (pharmacies, public toilets, stores) and in low season even restaurants stay closed for lunch and/or dinner on some odd days. Various places are closed on Mondays or Tuesdays, and it is not advertised anywhere, so call the place you want to visit (restaurant, museum, animal park etc) in advance to check. The good thing is that After siesta quite many stores re-open and work till late (9-10pm). Despite some surprises we had with the above peculiarity, our vacation in Catalunya was thoroughly enjoyable, and our choice of Can Cruanyes as a place to stay contributed to it greatly!

Great getaway !!!

  • 5 of 5
Very cosy and extremelly well equipped holiday home (especially as compared to the price). Everything was very clean and well maintained. It was clear the the owners (we only saw one, she was very friendly and conveniently spoke English) decorated the house with love.
Always a very warm welcome by Luna, the dog.
Even the one bedroom home has a washing machine. Heating (central and fireplace) are exellent. Good bed with duvets en pillows (no neckrolls!).

The description regarding the location was very accurate, which is just as well, because the farmhouse is outside a village. Surroundings are beautiful. In Tortella you can have a nice dinner (form 8.30) in the rock cafe for 10 euro.

If anyone would go to this area, I would certainly recommend it.

Do NOT forget to visit Besalu, a small, but beautiful medieval village. Figueres (Dali-museum) is not to be missed, nor are Cadaques and Port LLigat. A trip to Andorra (though quite a drive), is a beautiful daytrip). etc. etc. etc.

Lots and lots to do, very nice people. The fact the they speak Catalan is no problem, because everybody will answer you in Spanish (as long a you try to as well), or try to help you with signs (English is not widely spoken).

Hope to be back in a while
