About Carol King

In 2002 we had the opportunity to move abroad with our two young children. We are both international footwear designers, working with European factories, so we had the whole of Europe to choose from and settled on the beautiful Catalan countryside. It has taken many years to restore the main house and barn that date from the XVIII century. We live in the main house, 30 meters away from The Barn, which is the holiday let.

Carol King purchased this Barn in 2002

Why Carol King chose Caldes de Malavella

We are located in a beautiful tranquil valley, with paddocks for our two horses, a stream, surrounded by woodlands with a variety of wildlife including kingfishers, crayfish, salamanders, pond diving tortoises, mink and wild boar. We are situated 3.5 kilometres from the small spa town of Caldes de Malavella (8 minutes by car). The town boasts two beautiful health spas offering a huge range of treatments, many local shops, and the world renown P.G.A 'Golf de Catalunya' golf course. Girona airport is 15mins away and our train station can deliver you to Girona in 10mins or central Barcelona in 1 hour. The coast is 25mins by car.

What makes this Barn unique

Our barn, originally built in 1775 has been converted into comfortable self-catering accommodation, comprising: an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. One double bedroom, one twin bedroom (with camp-bed available) and a shower room with basin and toilet. The seating area has a spectacular glass frontage with views of the garden and paddocks, and glass doors opening onto a large terrace and the pool (shared with the owner). Kitchen facilities include electric oven with grill, gas hob, large fridge with icebox, double sink, electric kettle, toaster as well as the usual cooking utensils. We provide a welcome package of essential foods on your arrival. The double bedroom has a family size wardrobe, and French doors opening onto a shady wisteria clad pergola with table and chairs.Riding available.

                                                                        Lynne F.

                                                                        We stayed with our two teenage daughters for two weeks and enjoyed a fabulous holiday! The barn is set in rural countryside 3km outside the village of Caldes de Malavella where there are all the shops needed for self catering; butchers, fishmonger, bakery as well as supermarkets and a weekly farmers market.

                                                                        The barn itself is spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. The salt water pool is lovely and the surrounding gardens are beautifully kept. Carol and Perry were so welcoming and hospitable and gave us lots of pointers for places to visit. Our favourite was Besalu, steeped in history with stunning views of the mountains.

                                                                        There is a PGA golf course close by and lots of lovely places to eat within driving distance. We went into Girona a number of times as it was only 20 mins away and gave lots of choice for dinner.

                                                                        The barn is the ideal place to get away from it all and relax but there is plenty to get out and do too. Perfect!

                                                                        Great holiday !

                                                                        AkiNorfolk

                                                                        We had a wonderful week and would recommend to family and friends. Owners are a very welcoming and friendly family. Barn sits in picturesque surroundings and has its own enclosed area within which is the pool (shared with the owners).

                                                                        We packed in journeys to Girona Old Town, Vic and Barcelona during our weeks' s stay.

                                                                        Although advertised with horses, no need to worry about this aspect if horses are not for you as they never detract in any way.

                                                                        The only thing we would change is that we would have stayed for longer!

                                                                        Thanks again.

                                                                        Estupendo!

                                                                        Berta R.

Los propietarios muy amables y los caballos una pasada, muy cariñosos y pacientes con nuestro hijo de 2 años. La caseta de madera con juguetes hará las delicias de cualquier niñ@.
