Cruilles House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)
This is authentic Spain, not your standard vacation rental. Spacious stone house with a tower from the 13th Century, updated kitches and bathrooms, close to Barcelona, but in a different world altogether. Next to (1 mile from) La Bisbal in a tiny medieval village with BEAUTIFUL SCENERY AND BEACHES (15 km/9 miles away), quiet village living.
With 4 bedrooms plus bonus dormitory room/family room with an adjoining deck looking out on the countryside. Comfortably sleeps 8 plus. It has three baths, and a remodeled kitchen. It also has a large stone vaulted sitting room/dining room off the kitchen. It also has a spectacular view from the town's original 13th century watch tower and inviting terrace.
This home is perfect for the budget conscious traveller or group who enjoys authenticity and village life, but proximity to world class dining, beaches and cultural offerings.
For the more active traveller, Girona is a center for cycling, both road and mountain, and the hiking trails have been well developed in the area. There is world class golfing in Pals. The house and area are ideal for any time of year, since there is radiant heat in the home and the year round beauty of the country side. We've had guests stay for a weekend, weeks, or even months. IDEAL FOR A BARCELONA DWELLER or family to escape the city for the quiet to work, hike, relax, and regroup. Can Torre is also an ideal home base for other European travel, since it is close to the French Border and 20 to the Girona airport which has cheap flights to destinations all over Europe.

About Kristen Sparrow
We're a San Francisco family. Two of our (grown) children live in town and are making a go of it, our third is still in college in Canada. Kevin is from DC, Kristen from Berkeley. We lived in Spain during a boom time in Spain from 1995 to1998. We were so lucky to have lived in Barcelona. It is the best of the best, though, or course that might hurt San Francisco's feelings. But Barcelona has the size, history, and depth that warrants the acolades.
Kristen Sparrow purchased this house in 1998
Why Kristen Sparrow chose Cruilles
We bought this house at the tail end of a 3 year stay in Barcelona in 1998. Against all the naysayers in Spain , we managed to refurbish and renovate the house and have used it ever since. The old stone houses never lose their charm and resilience. We've had family to the tune of 17 strong in the house, and it didn't even wince, nor did the town. And the beaches, the countryside and the medieval towns are what bring us back. We never get tired of it.
What makes this house unique
The thing about this house/village/Costa Brava is the peaceful beauty, the range of beaches, and yet world class amenities in a country environment. This is why the cognoscenti from all over Europe come to the Alt and Baix Empordan.
