|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Standing halfway between the Pyrenean mountains and the blue Mediterranean sea, within easy reach of the old town of Girona and the cosmopolitan Barcelona city. Can Micos is also near to the amazing pine-fringed beaches of the Costa Brava and the vibrant Mediterranean resorts with their shops, bars, and restaurants. Can Micos is an old country house, near to the village of Riudarenes, in the region of La Selva. Set in peaceful, country fields it offers a comfortable base from which to enjoy the beauties of nature walking through fragrant woods and meadows, or simply relaxing on one of the sunny or shady patios, reading or dreaming the day away or enjoying a tasty barbecue, washed down by the excellent local wine, by the swimming pool!
Hello, my name's Carmen and I'm the owner of Can
Micos. I was born here in the village of Riudarenes and although I have lived in other parts of Catalunya, in Switzerland and in England my heart has remained here in the village of my childhood!
After the years past I am developing the job with lot of love like my parents did. My pleasure is opening up the home to my friends and guests, to show them what
rural tourism has to offer, and invite them to share the beauty, tranquillity and respect that I feel for Can Micos and its surroundings.
It´s a natural show of smells and colours depending of the season of the year!
Carmen Carreras Bagues purchased this farmhouse in 1860
In 1860 my grandfather bought Can Micos. My grandfather was a very hard-working and thrifty man.When he had some money saved, he only spent buying another new piece of land. In 1954 when my grandfather died, my mother inherited the estate. At that time I was 6 years old. In 1999 I became the owner of Can Micos. Throughout my childhood I lived in this house I have fond memories, and I feel that it is the best place in the world.
I love the house. I love the location. I love the fields, the village, the forest, even the mountains that I have looked at all my life.
If you visit us, will enjoy the tranquillity we have. With long gardens for strolling, playing, walking along the paths and know our neighborhood or if you wish just relax reading under a shade at the swimming pool. Can Micos it is located only 2 kms from the village of Riudarenes where you can find everything for food, fresh fish and country vegetables, daily bread from Josep my favorite baker, good meat (produced in Girona ) . Only 20 kms by motorway you will find "el Celler de Can Roca" nº1 of the world´s 50 best restaurants in 2015. 1h. You're also only 1 hour from Barcelona , although I suggest visiting the city by train from Sils as it´s easy and cheap.
During your stay the benefit is that I live close by, but independent of the main house and can be of assistance to you for whatever you need at any time.
You will always be very welcome to contact me and I will look forward to your visit.
