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 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 the people to feel as home and as comfortable as possible. I like to talk 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. Can Burguès is close to the main routes of all points in the country and very close to the main cities, but it is located in a quiet and rural area, so it is the best place to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere in a pleasant green country- side where you can appreciate interesting nature-walks, and spend your free time in an enjoyable and interesting way. And we are also only 30 minutes of Barcelona.

Thanks for your comment. We will be very happy if you will spend a few days in the future with us.
A beautiful and calm place
We visit Can Burgues during Easter 2011. It is a lovely place and friendly atmosphere with all opportunities for children to play and the adults to relax. The pool is very nice and heated (above 25 degrees). Josep and his family was very kind and helpful. The apartment was large, clean and fully equipted. The only thing that could have been better would be a longer stay :o) We will definitely come back one day.
Best to Josep and his family
Thank you for your words. I hope you come again and you will be very welcome.
PS: The pool is 29ºC.
We spent a perfect week at this property although it was too short. The house and surroundings were beautiful and comfortable. The facilities in the house were good and those outside were excellent. Everything was clean and in working order. The pool and surrounds were gorgeous. Lovely outside kitchen and eating area with barbecue. Also, the abiiity to stroll around the orchard and see the farm animals was lovely. The location was excellent for trips to Barcelona (local bus available) and the coast. Easy to get to beautiful national park and Montserrat. The owner was warm, friendly and welcoming. Very helpful with any queries.
Variety of supermarkets within walking distance; also bakeries and an excellent restaurant.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.
Super endroit,calme,propre...un vrai petit paradis..merci josep
Excellent place to stay
Great accommodation with well equipped apartments. Joseph is a very kind host and they make really good hazelnuts at their farm. There is a huge garden, nice for families with children but also for others. With a pool and a beautiful outside cooking facility.
A very nice place!
We had at Can Burgues a great holyday. The place is beautiful, the main building dates even from the 13th century and the atmosphere is very cosy and relaxing.
The flat we had had everything that we needed, from the smallest things in the kitchen up till washing machine and clothes Dryer. All of the things are very clean; you’ll feel very comfortable comparing with a hotel.
Directly to the pool that by the cold weather was warmed, there is a little place where one can play billiard, another one with tennis table and a great grill place.
For somebody that wants to relax in a quiet place, especially for families with little kids I can strongly recommend the place. The kids can come there close to many animals by the farm, from horses and the funny pig up till fishes and a lot of species of birds.
The Family Margenat is very friendly and open; they help with a lot of information about all you want to know about the Catalonia. In the same time they offer a lot of intimacy and respect, you will feel in their home like in your own one.
A lot of materials about the neighbourhood (in English, French, Spanish) you’ll also find in the flat: maps, guides, newspapers.
For the young people that mostly come to see a lot from Barcelona and have fun by the clubs in the town, the place is a little far. Due to the crowdie town you need time in order to reach important points. In this case is great if you are by car.
