About Raquel Xargay

We are a family of 5 people and Sandra is the licensed physiotherapist in the wellness room of the house.

We have restored the house and it's up to the high standards our guests expect.

We don't work through rental agencies. The result is better large villa at lower prices and more accurate information for our guests.

We have lived in the same village since we were born because we like this region. Costa Brava area has got a lovely landscape and it's located in a shorter distance from the Barcelona city.

Raquel Xargay purchased this house in 1930

Why Raquel Xargay chose Pla de l'Estany

We have been renting the house since 1999, so we have years of experience to make you dreams live.

Besides, Can Xargay house has got a real history behind:

It's a millenary farmhouse of XI century whose antique name was Mas Bratlle. It´s the biggest house of this neighbourhood, the other houses were little farmhouses. Pagès-Bratlle´s family lived in the house during a lot of centuries. This family was very rich because they were owners of the village´s lands . Nearly 2 centuries ago, the family of the house (Bratlle) built a new house in the same village and the farmhouse was rented to the family Xargay. At halves of the 20th C., the family Bratlle went to live in Barcelona and their properties slowly kept on being sold to several farmers. Then, the family Xargay bought the farmhouse where many generations had already lived.

What makes this house unique

The villa has got all the benefits that you will need. For example, there are wifi access, TV satellite (to see international channels in your country), there is a swimming-pool with an hidromasage bench (just for you), it's very close to the shops and restaurants (in a walking distance). Car is not necessary because there is public transport only 300 meters from the villa. And so on... We are sure that you will like and enjoy it!!
