Tranquility and rustic charm.

5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely place for four days and wished we could have spent more time there. Our two young sons had a great time exploring the meadows and woods surrounding the cottage. There are plenty of places to sit outside either in the sunshine or in the shade of the trees. The traditional Catalan style cottage was spacious and comfortable, We especially liked the evening fires as it was cool at this time of year. Our family. As there was no noise pollution our family slept very well. The location of the cottage was suitable for reaching the major points of interest by car. Terry and Gloria were good hosts and we certainly appreciated the warm, home baked pastries ! ( Fresh eggs, and fruit as well ! ) Their dogs, Black and Jack were rambunctious and very friendly. It was apleasure to experience this quiet and relaxing abode. Thank you Terry and Gloria.

lovely location - quite and secluded in winter

4 of 5
The atmosphere in the camp site in Winter is very relaxed. The distance from Besalu is about 25 minutes of very pleasant walking. The little house is welcoming and has many good books and videos in English . We enjoyed our stay
