Wonderful relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Ute was a great host at her beautifully detailed studio, the garden, pool and outlook over the mountains and neighboring village was great. We travelled to the coastal towns, winery tour, which Ute booked for us, and to Salvador Dali home and Museum, some great restaurants within half hour drive, El Fogons on the river was a favorite , Ute leaves a well stocked fridge and basket on arrival which is great for a night in. Thanks again Michelle and Brett

Schöne Ferienwohnung und super Gastfreundschaft

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten uns in den 6 Tagen, wo wir bei Manel & Ute waren, rund um wohl gefühlt. Beide waren jederzeit für uns da und haben zahlreiche Tipps gegeben, wo man gut Essen gehen oder Ausflüge hin planen kann. Als unser Sohn sich schlimm erkältet hatte, boten sie uns sogar an, ins Krankenhaus zu fahren, wenn nötig. Die Ferienwohnung war perfekt und mit dem Blick in den Pool (unter Wasser), vom Schlafzimmer aus, ein Traum. Alles war sehr sauber, gepflegt und top in Schuss. Die Ferienwohnung war mit viel Liebe und Herz eingerichtet. Freunde von uns, die einen Tag zu Besuch dort waren, waren sprachlos. Alles in allem hatten wir eine super schöne Zeit dort erlebt, mit so einer netten Gastfreundschaft, die man sondergleichen sucht. Kann ich jedem empfehlen dort seinen Urlaub zu verbringen. Danke Manel & Ute für eine wunderbare Zeit und euch weiterhin viel Erfolg.

Liebe Grüße

Beautifully restored farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in the pool studio. The property has been restored beautifully with lovely finishing touches. The pool was amazing & there were lots of comfortable beds/ chairs for relaxing. We received a very warm welcome from Ute & Manel who provided a well stocked fridge & even ice in the chiller for our beers on arrival! They were always on hand to offer tips & advice on the area & suggested lots of interesting things to do & places to visit. There was a large supermarket a short drive away and many lovely restaurants in driving distance. Dali's house was most impressive- a must to visit & the electric bikes hired in Roses were great fun. Thank you very much for a thoroughly lovely stay.

Studios on premises of 300 year old Mediterranean Farmhouse (villa) located at the foot of the Pyrenees mountain range. This recently completely restored property pleasantly combines modern amenities with the charme of past centuries. The quiet friendly village of L'Estrada is the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation. Situated at the very end of the village, but still close enough to feel part of our tiny village built around the square. Nature is at the tip of your fingers, from your deck you might even get the chance to observe a flock of sheep being led to their next grazing spot.. browse empordaguia to get an idea of what the region has to offer.

Located at the heart of the Alt Emporda region. It is a great base to explore secluded beaches, cliffs, mountains and local wineries. Following the ragged coastline of Port de la Selva, you will find beaches that can only be reached by boat or walking along the grassy cliffs. Whitewashed Cadaques is the 'jewel' of all coastal village in the Alt Emporda region., Stroll through the narrow cobblestone streets and you will find small trendy boutiques, local handicraft. galleries, cafes and first class restaurants,e.g. 'Compartir'..Or just hang out on one of the beaches and go for a swim or snorkeling trip in cristal clear water. Next door lies Port Lligat where you can visit Salvador Dali's spectacular house where he lived and worked.. Estartit and Escala further down the coast offer a great variety of sailing companies, scuba diving spots and other water related activities Looking for some wind/water related fun activities, then head down to San Pere Pescador beach (kite surf spot), miles of sandy beaches line the enormous bay of Rosas.

Gourmet travellers will only have a 30-minute-drive from the masia to the famous restaurant 'El Celler De Can Roca' in Girona, rated # 2 of the world's best restaurants..

Inland follow the winding backroads to small villages, each with its particular character. Peratallada and Monells should be on your list if you want to enjoy a real medieval village atmosphere.

The town of Figueres offers a lively shopping experience, Salvador Dali's world famous home town museum and many sunny plazas to enjoy a coffee or local wine with some tapas. Rolling hills or ragged mountains invite hikers to explore uncountable nature trails which often lead up to or pass by pre-medieval/medieval fortresses and castles that dot the Alt Emporda region
