About the Owner

In 2002 we had the opportunity to move abroad with our two young children. We are both international footwear designers, working with European factories, so we had the whole of Europe to choose from and settled on the beautiful Catalan countryside.

It has taken many years to restore the main house and barn that date from the XVIII century.

We live in the main house, 30 meters away from The Barn, which is the holiday let.

Guestbook comments from the owner

-"The best holiday EVER"

We've made some wonderful friends and looking forward to returning next year already!

-We have had a lovely holiday, relaxing week in your beautiful house. The girls enjoyed the horses and the cat and dog too! Beautiful setting, great weather, lovely pool. Thank you to Carol, Perry, Poppy and Sophie for making us feel so welcome. We would love to come back!

-Great place for the whole family to unwind. Something for everyone. The most relaxing break I've had in a while. I really enjoyed the pony trekking Carol, a trip down memory lane! Thanks to you and all your family for such a warm welcome and we very much enjoyed the pool and beautiful surroundings.

Peaceful & Relaxing Ideal Holiday Base

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two teenage daughters for two weeks and enjoyed a fabulous holiday! The barn is set in rural countryside 3km outside the village of Caldes de Malavella where there are all the shops needed for self catering; butchers, fishmonger, bakery as well as supermarkets and a weekly farmers market.

The barn itself is spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. The salt water pool is lovely and the surrounding gardens are beautifully kept. Carol and Perry were so welcoming and hospitable and gave us lots of pointers for places to visit. Our favourite was Besalu, steeped in history with stunning views of the mountains.

There is a PGA golf course close by and lots of lovely places to eat within driving distance. We went into Girona a number of times as it was only 20 mins away and gave lots of choice for dinner.

The barn is the ideal place to get away from it all and relax but there is plenty to get out and do too. Perfect!

Great holiday !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week and would recommend to family and friends. Owners are a very welcoming and friendly family. Barn sits in picturesque surroundings and has its own enclosed area within which is the pool (shared with the owners).

We packed in journeys to Girona Old Town, Vic and Barcelona during our weeks' s stay.

Although advertised with horses, no need to worry about this aspect if horses are not for you as they never detract in any way.

The only thing we would change is that we would have stayed for longer!

Thanks again.
