BEAUTIFULL DAYS IN MIERES...

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at 4 bikes in this small village or is the beautiful home of Lisa and Chris. We have been very well received, as Chris was also rider... The old building of 800 years villa is superb, with very large walls in stone as we like. Large, beautiful pool, and above all, the calm and silence. What happiness of the morning birds singing... We spent 4 fantastic days. The region is perfect for rides motorcycles, with turns that no more end up. A treat. This trip was a chance to celebrate my 50 years old, this will remain a beautiful memory. Thank you, therefore, to Lisa and Chris for this great weekend, we will return to as possible...

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been holidaying in the costa brava and Cataluna for many years now, and we have rented a few holiday homes in our time. Mas Planella is by far the best. The house is HUGE (the pictures do not do it justice) and it wants for nothing. There were 10 of us that stayed and there was plenty of room for us all - we could have lost each other!
The farmhouse itself has been beautifully restored, having all the modern amenities whilst still being true to the age and character of the house. The kitchen is huge and has everything you could ever need. There are 2 lounges which are both huge - one has a table tennis table in it! The bedrooms are a more-than adequate size and each has an ensuite wetroom with a toilet and shower, one also has a bath. The whole house stayed lovely and cool even when it was 45 degrees outside, and the bedrooms have air conditioning units which was also a bonus.
The views from the house are breath-taking, with volcanic mountains and woodland. The surrounding area is beautiful and the nearby towns of Santa Pau, Mieres and Besalu are rustic and very romantic at night.
The place is so quiet and relaxing, just the birds chirping and the occasional chime of the church bell in Mieres can be heard.
A car is recommended due to the out-of-the-way setting of the house, but the beaches are not far away at all - we visited Begur (Llafranc, Aigua blava), L'escala, Empuries, L'estartit and Blanes whilst we were there. Also, Girona airport is only 45 minutes away.
If you don't fancy the beach, there's a lot of waterfalls and little pools hidden away in the surrounding area - one is just a 10 minute drive from the house, We had one of the most enjoyable days of our holiday at the waterfall so I definately recommend it!
The owners of the house Lisa and Chris were a real bonus, very helpful and very friendly people who made our holiday extra special.
All in all, we had a great holiday in a wonderful house, in a spectacular setting, and hosted by lovely people.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - WE CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

Highly recommended - we can't wait to go back!

We can highly recommend this property. The house (masia) has been beautifully restored, is very well equipped and has masses of space - including two separate living rooms.  The location is stunning, with panoramic views and there is lots of outdoor space for children to run around or for barbecues and relaxing in the sun.  The owners also have a few sheep and a pig on the land, which were a big hit with our children.  The owners are very friendly and helpful and met all our needs - e.g. providing children's toys and baby equipment .  The house is situated on the edge of the Garrotxa Volcanic National Park in Catalonia, a really beautiful area to explore. Also within easy reach of historic medieval villages and the Costa Brava. We can't wait to go back!!
