An oasis in a sea of beauty and splendor.

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations are very comfortable, and offer the opportunity to relax - be it on the terrace, by the pool - or indoors. The porthole that gives an underwater view of the pool also gives relaxing light in the bedroom. The property is very well maintained. The owners have been very helpful with suggestions and interests in the area. We found the studio to surpass our expectations. We would certainly use it again when the opportunity presents itself.

It's a easy and scenic drive to the coastal towns of the Costa Brava. Many hiking trails in the area, and an abundance of things to do, explore and experience. We loved the nearby wine farms for picnics. We were surprised to find so many good restaurants so close. Barcelona is a easily reached by train from Figueres - and with the French border only minutes away, there is an opportunity to explore the French Catalan regions too.

A most excellent stone cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this cottage last week and had a wonderful experience. The property was exactly as described. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, it has recently been renovated so there are modern conveniences coupled with old world charm. Manuel, the owner was extremely helpful, he loaned us bicycles and mapped out a route for us to a restaurant where we enjoyed a lovely lunch. Manuel also made arrangements for us to have a vineyard tour and picnic lunch that was memorable. If you are looking for a vacation in Spain that is off the beaten path, this is a lovely area. The beaches are close enough by car, the mountains are even closer, there are hiking paths right outside the gate, lovely restaurants are close by. The kitchen is perfect for making simple meals. The nicest touch was that there was a basket of coffee, bread and butter, cookies and even a bottle of wine waiting for us when we showed up, so that we were able to sit down and have a bite when we arrived instead of having to hunt for a grocery store.
The cottage is large enough for 2 people to be comfortable, but I think a family with one or two children would fit also. The pool is beautiful and the property is very nicely landscraped.
There is a stack of guide books and maps in the cottage that were really helpful.

Far exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5
We had traveled thru many parts of Basque, And Catalyon.. But we're looking for the real small village experience.. We found it here. I hope my husband reviews, because he loved this place!!! I am a hiker so I tried to walk 3 miles each day on our 3 week trip. Hikes were amazing here. Plus, the owners gave us great inside as to local food and wineries. I have so much more to say but want to get this post in. This stop is on the Camino too! But when we arrived, I said, " this is everything we've been looking for in our three week vacation to Catalonya! " We are so happy we went on VRBO when in Gironia, otherwise we would have missed this gem! We went to Dali"s home a beautiful drive along w many recommended places by gracious owners. We will return,

Freestanding studio on premises of 300 year old Mediterranean Farmhouse (villa) located at the foot of the Pyrenees mountain range. This recently completely restored property pleasantly combines modern amenities with the charme of past centuries. The quiet friendly village of L'Estrada is the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation. Situated at the very end of the village, but still close enough to feel part of our tiny village built around the square. Nature is at the tip of your fingers, from your deck you might even get the chance to observe a flock of sheep being led to their next grazing spot.. browse empordaguia to get an idea of what the region has to offer.

Located at the heart of the Alt Emporda region. It is a great base to explore secluded beaches, cliffs, mountains and local wineries. Following the ragged coastline of Port de la Selva, you will find beaches that can only be reached by boat or walking along the grassy cliffs. Whitewashed Cadaques is the 'jewel' of all coastal village in the Alt Emporda region., Stroll through the narrow cobblestone streets and you will find small trendy boutiques, local handicraft. galleries, cafes and first class restaurants,e.g. 'Compartir'..Or just hang out on one of the beaches and go for a swim or snorkeling trip in cristal clear water. Next door lies Port Lligat where you can visit Salvador Dali's spectacular house where he lived and worked.. Estartit and Escala further down the coast offer a great variety of sailing companies, scuba diving spots and other water related activities Looking for some wind/water related fun activities, then head down to San Pere Pescador beach (kite surf spot), miles of sandy beaches line the enormous bay of Rosas.

Gourmet travellers will only have a 30-minute-drive from the masia to the famous restaurant 'El Celler De Can Roca' in Girona, rated # 2 of the world's best restaurants..

Inland follow the winding backroads to small villages, each with its particular character. Peratallada and Monells should be on your list if you want to enjoy a real medieval village atmosphere.

The town of Figueres offers a lively shopping experience, Salvador Dali's world famous home town museum and many sunny plazas to enjoy a coffee or local wine with some tapas. Rolling hills or ragged mountains invite hikers to explore uncountable nature trails which often lead up to or pass by pre-medieval/medieval fortresses and castles that dot the Alt Emporda region
