About the property

6 bedrooms all ensuite, modern open-plan living and dining space for 12 people

Can Lledo is totally unique - modern, spacious and open-plan, yet this farmhouse conversion still retains many original features. It is nestled in the Gavarres hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, with views down to the Costa Brava that really take your breath away. Within these hills, the house is set in 54 acres, with truly beautiful gardens, a stunning infinity swimming pool, and an abundance of natural forest paths to explore. We have a tree house on the path down to one of our fields, and this begins a walk which takes about an hour to explore the trails within our land.

The interior is sleek and modern and all rooms have been thoughtfully furnished. Upstairs are 4 large double bedrooms, 3 of which have incredible panoramic windows and 1 boasts a terrace and chairs for a little more 'me' time. There is room with 2 bunk beds, which is perfect for children, and a couple of fold-down beds and cots should you need more beds. There is another double bedroom downstairs with optional twin beds. All bedrooms have modern ensuite bathrooms.

Living space includes a large open-plan kitchen with all mod cons and a dining room that seats12. There is a fully equipped utility room next to the kitchen. To make the most of the views, we have designed the house so that from the kitchen and dining room, you can look out of the enormous windows to take it in at all times.

A large yet cosy TV room adjoins the games room, and is the perfect place to chill out with a good dvd. The huge sofa can seat 10 people and there are bean bags and a rocking chair for extra relaxation. The games room is full of fun, with a ping pong table, table football, and darts to get competitive.

The open-plan kitchen is centred around a big island, and opens onto an beautiful stone-arched outdoor eating area. The table seats 12, and is perfect for al fresco dining overlooking the pool. There is also a coal barbeque which is ideal for cooking the Catalan dish of 'mar y montanya' - literally meaning 'sea and mountain' and referring to the way they combine both seafood and meat. Our favourites are large prawns and steak!

Website: Can Lledo has a private website giving further details of the house, the local area, things to do and further information about local amenities. At the time of booking, we can give you access to the website to help you plan your stay.

Activities: There are so many things to do in the area, although you may want to sit back and relax by the pool for the week at the house. We have a detailed information folder at the house listing everything there is to do in the area. Some examples of activities you can do are: kite surfing, windsurfing, fishing, sailing, diving, ballooning, golf cycling, cycling, horse riding, hiking, go karting, boat trips and kayaking.

Culture: There are many beautiful historic towns near Can Lledo and again we list all of these attractions on our website and also in our information folder. You might want to visit the stunning cathedral or walk the wall of the old town in Girona. You may want to drive for an hour south to Barcelona. There are various museums, the house and birth place of Salvador Dali, stunning beach coves and seaside towns such as Palafrugell, Sa Riera, Begur and Llafranc. Besalu bridge is worth a trip, as is Cadaques. The Pyrenees are breath taking on the drive from the airport up to Can Lledo, and only an hours drive away.

Extras: As well as our private website and information book with details and information on so many local attractions, we can also put you in touch with a number of people who might make your holiday more relaxing and special. Should you want to go out and leave the children, we have a great local babysitter; if you would like an evening of Catalan cuisine, we can organise a chef to come to the house; and if you feel like you need to unwind even further, we have a yoga teacher and massage therapists who can come to the house for individual classes and sessions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yes we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The games room and the pool kept the kids all entertained. We found the barbecue area was a great place for chilling in the evening and had BBQ’ s most nights. Thanks for the Chef info, Joan Marce came over on the Wednesday night and barbecued some nice local dishes. We stayed fairly local to the villa and hired bikes for 3 days from catalan cycles and cycled down to the next village for lunch, although the hill was a bit too much for the younger ones.

Girona was a great place to visit which we really enjoyed. We ventured to the beach one day but it was packed. Would thoroughly recommend it to our friends and who knows maybe we’ll be back.

Fabulous family vacation in a wonderful location. The time went too quickly, would repeat again in a minute. Everything was as promised and more, not to mention that Parker, the groundsman, was extremely friendly and helpful.

Stunning retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for a family holiday. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's a short ride from Girona airport, in the most glorious of settings and a heaven for kids!! There is a pool, tennis court, trampoline and great games room. This in turn meant it was a heaven for the adults as they were kept entertained.

The house is big and well equipped so no one felt on top of each other which is a big bonus when there are 6 adults and 6 kids !!

There was lots to do in the vicinity and although we were all quite happy staying in at night there are some great restaurants near by. If you are going with children and fancy a night out I would suggest visiting Monelles.

Highly recommend visiting this beautiful corner of the world xx

Almost perfection

  • 4 of 5

The first thing to note about Can Lledo is the views. We had a week at the end of May/early June with frankly dreadful weather and so didn't get to enjoy these as much as we might have but when the weather did clear the views were spectacular. The house is also equipped to a very high standard with good rooms and plentiful en suites. The house is very family friendly with a good play/games room and trampoline/tennis court as well alongside sufficient green spaces for football/children running round. The kitchen is also very well equipped. The one thing that stops the house from getting 5 stars is the pool heating. The pool was a reasonable size for our party 3/4 adult swimmers and 3 children but would be small for a larger party. However the main issue with the pool is that it is heated to 21C. This is warm enough to make it possible to swim (we had the children in wetsuits) but not comfortable. 24C or 27C would be much better. The other thing to note is that there is an excellent estates manager on site who has two large dogs. These are the best-trained dogs we have ever come across and successfully cured my children's dog phobia but it is worth knowing that they are there. My kids would love to go back to Can Lledo, as would I, but it would have to be the height of summer or the pool heating would have to be increased before we did so.

A little slice of heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

Can Lledo was fabulous in every way for five ladies on holiday. From the gorgeous views to the well equipped kitchen to the fabulous bedrooms with private baths to the pool etc, we could not ask for more. The bedrooms all had wonderful views and were equipped with all cotton bedding. We had the BEST weather and visited quaint old gorgeous towns from the hills to the Mediterranean. And the "piece de resistance" was having Parker the landlord who was so friendly and accommodating in every way. I can't wait to go back and take my family some day.

A piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful stay away then this dream Villa is the one you are looking for. Surrounded by mountains it offers a views you will never forget. Just take a seat in the balcony, by the pool or some of many places around the house and relax. We stayed there with three families 6 adults and 6 children and everyone found a preferred activity the house offered - the kids enjoyed the heated pool (cost some extra but was worth it in the middle of autumn :)), as the adults were playing tennis and basketball and some of quest were even picking the mushrooms on the site :). The house was equipped with everything you need and in case you need a help, Parker, a really nice guy, looking at the household there, was always nearby and happy to help you. Make you shopping in Cassa de la Selva, in Caprabo . Nicola can give you good tips what you can buy there. If you are to lazy to cook for yourself, we suggest to use Cafe Frankfurt for take away. We used them in the last evening and the food we got was really good, also reasonable priced. Our best recommendations for this house, hope to come back here.

A beautiful secluded villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa in the Catalonia hills that is spacious, clean and well maintained. It is perfect for house parties or a family vacation. The visitors can expect to enjoy a lovely pool overlooking a beautiful vista, a tennis court, a tree house and trampoline for the children as well as a well stocked game room with a ping pong table. It is convenient to many villages that make day trips very diverse and enjoyable. There are also many restaurants in the area that are superb. Can lledo is highly recommended.
