There are enough bathrooms and sitting areas that we never felt crowded. The terrace made a perfect dining area overlooking the pool with the mountains in the distance. The kitchen is a lovely size but could do with some updating. For example, to cook for 20 with 2 ovens and a hob meant we were limited on our menu options to all eat together. The BBQ is a good size but could benefit from being closer to the seating areas since whoever is cooking is at the opposite side of the house which feels a little disjointed and breaks up the sociable nature of cooking and eating together outside. That said, we loved our time here relaxing by the pool or challenging each other to water volleyball or table tennis. The small grassed field to the side is great for team games and letting the kids burn off some energy. It's well placed for visits to Girona and other attractions in the region. We took a train to Barcelona, visited a water park and the beach and also went kayaking on a lake. Ricard is your point of contact and he looked after us very well and was never far away if we had a problem. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he always arrived with a smile. He even accompanied one of our party to the doctors which was really appreciated. Thank you Ricard! We would definitely recommend this property for a large group and would certainly stay here again if we were coming back to the area.
