About Property Manager
Hello. My name is Janet Dawn Buckler and my company Catalunya Casas owns and manages various properties in Catalonia. We specialise in family villa rentals (with pools and gardens!) that are close enough to Barcelona to enjoy all the benefits the city has to offer, yet far enough ‘off the beaten track�� so that our guests have the opportunity to enjoy and experience the real Catalonia/Spain. Our mission is to offer guests an original 'un-hotel' like experience, which includes hand-picked properties and additional services that are not available on traditional tourist routes (e.g., private in-villa catering services, local attraction discounts, hiking/biking/hidden treasure tours, wine/cava/chocolate/tapas/paella tastings, and more! We can arrange and provide pretty much any activity that you can dream up!). As we are unbiased in our opinions, we make it our duty to ensure you choose the perfect villa for your vacation and are always happy to advise on any detail of your location or property preference. We have strict maintenance and quality standards and are registered with the regional property agents association (API 6002) to ensure reliable, trustworthy, and dedicated service.
Why Property Manager chose Castellar del Vallès
I love this property because of its peace and tranquillity yet easy access to everything.
What makes this Villa unique
I am the type of traveller who enjoys 'off the beaten track' vacations. I do not like areas where there are a ton of tourists, so I always search for villas that are near to the area I wish to visit, but provide peace, tranquillity, nature, comfort and a true cultural experience. I grew up in Canada, then lived in the UK for 6 years and now live here in Spain/Catalonia. I love the people, culture, food and emphasis on family in this area. I am not so keen on the 'mañana' attitude when performing business activities - but this would be the last of your worries, as you are here to vacation! I finally feel like I have found my home and I look forward to sharing this unique and beautiful area with you.
Pool / Spa
French family - 3 kids
We had a very pleasant stay in a very nice place. The view from he chalet is just great, and it is good to have fresh air and shadow when temperatures are hot!
The garden is perfect for kids with its pool and swing, and we appreciated the "siesta " or dinning on the terrace in front of the villa.
It is a real heaven of peace when you come back in this mountain area and have a swim in the pool after walking hours in the streets of Barcelona which is very close from the villa.
Thank you to Janet, for its help while preparing our trip. We will probably coming back soon.
Breath-taking views and cosy interior
We were delighted with this lovely holiday rental. Situated on the hillside above Castellar de Valle, it had everything that we needed for a relaxing stay outside Barcelona. The "park-like" description given is very accurate. We had a lovely time barbequing in the spacious backyard and then enjoying our dinner while sitting on the front deck, viewing the beautiful mountains and valleys below. It felt as if we were the only people in the park! As we had been traveling for awhile, we also appreciated the use of the laundry facilities. A big thanks to Dawn for being such a considerate and friendly hostess. We would love to return and hike the trails we didn't take (La Mola is AMAZING!) and will highly recommend this stay to others.
Viva Sant Feliu!
Great village! Very few tourists. It feels like you are in real Spain yet everybody is really friendly! WE were there for the village festival and it was so much fun for the family! Music, dancing, food, friendships! The villa was great for our small family - very cosy and clean. Huge garden and great BBQ and exterior terrace. WE enjoyed the swimming pool and slept great in the evening mountain air. Lots of nearby hiking trails including one on the front doorsteps that takes you to a converted monastery at the top of a mountain. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your comments. I am so pleased you enjoyed this beautiful area of Catalunya as much as I do!
Enjoy San Feliu !
Almost 1 month after the end of our stay, our two kids asks in average 1 time a day : "when are we going to go again to San Feliu del Raco at Janet's home ??? That's a good sign !
Very relaxing time- peaceful location but very closed from Barcelona as well- the villa area fits very well for a family of 4 with a nice terasse area and all necessary stuff to enjoy vacation in a relaxing mode. San Feliu del Raco citizen, especially in the the central bar ... very welcoming with us and fantastic atmosphere watching football match and having so good and typical food.
Last but not least , Janet offers very nice service and is customer focus - thanks again for your welcome !

Thank you for your kind comments! I am so pleased you enjoyed your vacation and I welcome you back at any time!
I stayed here for a week with my family. I loved the peaceful location and the kids had fun in the pool. Clean, comfortable and amazing views! I was very impressed by the service we received from Janet, she took very good care of us during our stay.
This charming and cosy wood mountain villa with pool is located in the perfect location for nature lovers, hikers and biking (situated on the edge and overlooking the stunning Sant Llorenc de Munt Natural Park), mountain climbing, horse riding enthusiasts (there are numerous stables and horse riding excursions in the area and golf (Real Club de Golf El Prat - one of the best and most prestigious golf courses in Catalonia). All of the benefits of a peaceful and tranquil Catalonia mountain getaway, yet only a short drive to the bustle and culture of Barcelona and world famous Montserrat Monastery. Ideally situated between Barcelona and Girona, meaning that the beaches of Costa Brava are only a half hour drive away as well. Should natural hot springs entice you, the famous village of Caldes de Montbui is a 10 minute drive. Outlet shopping is nearby at La Roca Village.
Golf: Real Club de Golf El Prat is the most prestigious and well known course in Catalonia, and is only a 10km drive away. With 45 holes it is one of the more challenging Greg Norman designs that you can play: lots of bunkers, rolling fairways in the middle of a mature forest and very fast greens. It is open year round, has a putting and pitching green, restaurant, dressing room, ball, club and buggy rentals.
Camp de Golf de Matadepera is also close for the more casual golfer. The Club has all the services as does Golf El Prat and provides classes/lessons for all levels and is surrounded by stunning scenery of the Sant Llorenc de Munt National Park.
Ski: Masella ski resort is located in La Cerdanya, a tourist area in the middle of the Pyrenees. In Masella, skiers will be surprised by fantastic and impressive landscapes. Masella has up to 54 main trails and 19 variations that represent 65 skiable kilometres, with well over 800m of vertical. 80% of the ski slopes are in the middle of the forest, which guarantees the quality and quantity of snow and trees are also a perfect protection against storms. The other 20% of the trails are located at the top of the mountain, with splendid views of the wonderful valley of La Cerdanya.
La Molina is well-situated, surrounded by mountains of more than 2500 metres. La Molina is the nearest ski resort to the main cities of Catalunya and large parts of Spain. It is readily accessible by car, bus, or train. After nearly one hundred years of operation, La Molina has the experience to maintain its position as one of the premier ski resorts of Spain offering the newest technology and services.
