About Josep Margenat
We are a family of five, my wife, my three daughters and I. I live on a big farm and I work as a farmer raising hazelnuts, besides the tourism business. I have been working with the holiday cottage for 15 years already. We started with only one apartment, and after some years we decided to increase it because we thought it could be worth it, and because we saw that working on this business has brought us into contact with such a great families from around the world. My family and I host the customers, and we all want that people feel as home and as comfortable as possible. I like to chat with the guests and enlighten them about the country and the region. I also like to show them the house, the fields and the surroundings of the house because it is an old farm house with a long history.
Josep Margenat purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Josep Margenat chose Santa Eulàlia de Ronçana
Why this location? Can Burgues dating back to the 13th century, to this day has always been handed-down from father to son remaining in the family. Today it still retains its original structure and rustic style and has become a point of important historical reference within the village. Can Burguès is near all main routes of all points in the country and very close to the main cities, but it is situated in a quiet and rural area, therefore is the best place to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere in a pleasant green country-side where you may appreciate interesting nature-walks, and spend your free time in an enjoyable and interesting way.

Very relaxing holiday in picturesque location
My husband and I spent a wonderful week in the cottage in September 15 and we would definitely recommend this cottage to others.
The cottage itself is split into 3 flats - ours was lovely, very clean and had traditional rustic features with great views of the hills. The outside area is shared by the 3 flats and includes a pool, table tennis, bikes, pool table etc. It is all well maintained and we enjoyed it so much outside we spent most of our week there.
We did not have a car so relied on public transport. The bus stop is just a couple of minutes walk away and the express bus takes you into Barcelona in 35 minutes.
Josep and his family made us feel very welcome and we would love to return one day. It was one of the most enjoyable holidays we have ever had.
Peace and seclusion less 1 hour from Barcelona
We had a great stay at Can Burguès with our toddler. The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed, and the pool and garden area was perfect for lazy afternoons in the sun. There are shops (including a supermarket) and bars and restaurants with 5 minutes’ walk, and the location is also great for excursions further afield - you can get to Barcelona by bus or train in well under an hour, and the motorway is also nearby.
Josep and his family were very welcoming, and we wouldn’t hesitate to return, or to recommend Can Burguès to friends.
Can Burgues Base Camp
Had a nice week, all four of us, in late September this year in Can Burgues in Santa Eulalia, Catalunya. Our host Josep Margenat recommeded close by places to visit - Montserrat, Caldes de Montbui and town of Vic to mention in addition to Barcelona where we spent for a couple of days. Josep even booked us a visit to famous Godorniu cava-house not far away from Santa Eulalia by car.
Our accommodation at Can Burgues was perfect for us. You had everything you need at hand for daily life. In a near by restaurat, the name of which I unfortunately don't recall - just the opposite of the main street when coming from Can Burgues, a young chef served us, when asking, a real full local menu at a very decent price. After that I felt I'm not able to take anything for a couple of days. But miracles happen and in the morning it was quite ok to start with a good breakfast made in our well equipped kitchen.
The Margenat family was taking good vare of the guests and certainly can recommend Can Burgues for anyone who like to shuttle from there by car into different places in Catalunya or to stay by the comfortable pool area of the house.
