A Lovely Old Stone Built Country House Set In Idyllic Surroundings



Updated: 18-Jul-2016
An 18thcent Country Manor House Situated In An Extensive Country Estate near Vidreres, (Costa Brava) -The Village is only a 10 Min. drive.

Dating back to the 18th century, the lovely old country house of Can Tarre, is situated in the beautiful province of Girona within the region of "La Selva" (known as the land of castles and water!). It has been lovingly restored, and tastefully decorated, to create a very spacious and comfortable home for friends or families to enjoy a totally different, and truly relaxing holiday, in idyllic surroundings. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast on the sunny terrace by the pool, or an 'al fresco' candlelight dinner under the shady porch with delicious, char-grilled meat, fish or vegetables cooked on the brick-built BBQ or crispy bread or pizzas done to perfection in the adjacent, wood fired pizza oven! The house, and it's charming, stone built annexe, stand in their own informal, but well- kept, gardens with panoramic views across the countryside and the delicate fragrance from aromatic herbs, lavender, roses and magnolias. All the beauties of nature are on your doorstep, and when strolling , or cycling in the surrounding woods and countryside , apart from the wide variety of trees, bushes and wild flowers, do keep your eyes and ears open to see and hear the many small animals and birds that make this fertile region their home! Whether you want to eat out, or want to re-stock the larder for your country style meals, the village of Vidreres is only a 10 mins drive away and where you will find bars, restaurants, shops, banks etc and an excellent weekly market every Thursday to stock up on the fresh produce of the area. However Vidreres is also particularly well known for it's excellent restaurants, so you can also treat yourself to some local 'menus of the day' at amazing prices, and with wine included....! With numerous golf courses in the area and easy access to so many fascinating places : the beautiful beaches of the Costa Brava , the ruins of Empuries, the fascinating, world famous museum of Salvador Dali in Figueres, or the delightful cities of Gerona and cosmopolitan Barcelona: your holiday can be as active or as relaxing as you want it to be!

Highly recommended immaculate villa

  • 5 of 5

-Great, modern and clean facilities in a secluded, beautiful location

- Rosa (Owner) was great also - v helpful and friendly -

- nice small pool and jacuzzi. Would benefit from a larger pool

Our only problem was with the external lights that hindered eating out at night but otherwise, we had a wonderful stay

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review! We're really happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Can Tarre and were able to appreciate, as we do , the beauty and tranquility of the house and its surroundings . Happily we've now solved the "gremlins" in the porch lights (!) and are actually in the process of applying for permission to put in a larger pool for next year! .......Watch this space! Do hope we will see you all again sometime in the future, All our very best regards, Rosa and Julio, Can Tarre, Vidreres
