We had a wonderful experience in Spain staying at Can Jan in Catalunya. The villa was everything we expected it to be; spacious, clean, interesting rooms, great outdoor spaces as well as indoor. The pool area was a big hit with our group. We were a multi-generational family and friends group of 14 and were very comfortable only using 8 of the 12 bedrooms. Lots of public and private space for all.
The town of Besalu (just minutes by car) was a gem! Lots of fun roaming through the medieval walled village. Great shops, cafes and restaurants. Girona, a much larger version, is only 25 minutes away and offers even more. Great beaches within 40 minute drive.
One of the best parts was our hosts Tony and Sally. Delightful, friendly and very helpful people. Sally cooked 3 times for us and we were blown away by the delicious food. Her paella was the best we have had in Spain!
A wholehearted recommendation for any family groups or friends who want a relaxing and interesting respite!
A heavenly spot the week of August 7-14; hours of glorious sun, pool side chats, naps, visits to nearby Medieval sites, volcanic hikes, late afternoons dotted with double rainbows, A magical setting in the woods, a beautifully renovated property graciously inviting with nooks for privacy and grand areas for 22 becoming 1. The hospitality of the resident caretakers, Karen and Bill was overwhelming as was the flexibility and talent of chef Monica Goold, whom we hired through the efforts of Can Jan's owner. Our thanks to one and all who made the magic at Can Jan. The Jones Family 2010
