About the property

Can Cruanyes

Can Cruanyes has been recently restored and renovated into 3 individually styled apartments (1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom). The preservation of characteristic stone walls and vaulted ceilings allow the blending of old world charm with modern comfort and convenience.

Can Cruanyes extends over 20 acres of woodland and paddocks which also host the spacious non overlooked swimming pool and outdoor hot tub. Here you can swim or sunbathe surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountain peaks and forests. The child friendly garden with swings, sandpit, football goal, trampoline and table tennis are great fun for both the young and the young at heart!

Each apartment has its own enclosed private terrace where you can dine alfresco while enjoying a glass of local wine under the stars. The BBQ and picnic area enjoy views from all sides, whether up to the mountain peaks above, down to the valley or across to our charming stone house.

We give you everything you'll need to feel at home, while still enjoying the comforts and ease of hotel-style convenience: from the WiFi internet and complementary toiletries to your own fully equipped kitchen - we have everything down to salad spinners and garlic crushers - if there's anything we forgot, tell us and we'll get one for you!

About Donny

I am Irish and moved to Spain 5 years ago with my partner. I have gone from a career in IT to a career in hospitality with no regrets!

Donny purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Donny chose La Garrocha

Well it was actually my father who spotted and restored the house originally. After running it for a number of years and feeling like Catalonia was our new home, we purchased it from him.

What makes this apartment unique

The setting is idyllic with some nice mountain views. The large gardens give the place great scope for doing various projects that appeal to everyone from couples to the kids.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We loved the relaxed, peaceful atmosphere at Can Cruanyes.... we were able to instantly feel at home thanks to Donny and Siobhans' welcoming hospitality. The farm is beautiful, surrounded by mountains and yet with all the modern comforts you could need and a fabulous pool. If it weren't for the amazing surrounding villages, volcanoes, waterfalls, forests and coastline to explore i could have happily not left the farm at all for the entire week! We would highly reccomend Can Cruanyes and look forward to returning ourselves again!'

Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

- An impressive Pyrenean retreat.

Donny, alongside his charming family, made us feel very comfortable throughout. Our beautiful little 'Cherry' apartment, was clean, well-finished, and offered us an unobstructed mountain panorama from our own private garden.

We will see you again soon!

Ideal apartment for two, Extremely well equipped. Very clean. Peaceful location, nicely away from it all but still very conveniently located for sightseeing, touring and walking.

Quiet and cozy, perfect location for holidays !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Can Cruanyes during a whole week and we had a lovely time !

The house is isolated from alsmost everything, easy to find though. A small city is at ~3min by car and you can find a small (very small) market. You have some bigger cities at ~15-20min by car.

The appartment is lovely with everything needed to spend a good vacation time : big fridge, hotplates, dishes, clean towels...

The pool is clean (except for some flies but eh... in summer there are flies everywhere...) and perfect for cooling, with deck chairs and beach umbrellas around. The SPA is also very pleasant at night with a full view on the mountains.

Donny and his wife were very accomodating and careful.

We strongly recommand this place to spend peaceful holidays !

Perfect location for an autumn holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Can Cruanyes for 11 night, an excellent base for exploring the medieval towns & villages; Olot, Besalu, Santa Pau. The isolated mountain village of Beget was well worth the drive.

We had no difficulty in finding restaurants open at lunchtime.

Apartment Cherry was very comfortable and well equipped. The wood burner was perfect for the cooler evenings after long days walking and exploring.

Thank you Donny & Siobham for being such good hosts, we plan to return.

An excellent isolated villa for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Can Cruanyes to relax after a week cycling in the Pyrenees, and it was exactly what we needed. The apartment is lovely and cosy, and well equipped for self-catering. The pool is clean and perfect for cooling off after relaxing in the large gardens.

We spent the week enjoying being away from civilisation, but if you want to visit Olot or Girona the main road to either is only 10 minutes drive away.

Overall an excellent place to stay that I would highly recommend.
