We, a family with a two-year old and a group of friends, had an absolutely wonderful week at Can Lledo. Things started well, when we discovered how close to Girona airport the house is - barely a 25-minute drive down empty roads. It made the journey from the door to door very quick and even if the tracks near the house are a bit bumpy, this is well worth it to drive into the heart of such stunning, wild, rugged, landscape. And Girona airport itself is so tiny that even a dawn flight home wasn't stressful, as there were no check-in queues.
The villa itself has been lovingly and carefully designed and constructed, using really high quality materials and with a beautiful flow which means that lots of people can stay and have privacy in their own rooms and bathrooms, while also coming together in the communal spaces - kitchen, games room, pool, chill-out terrace - for convivial days and nights. Each bedroom has its own special feel, view and style of bathroom, and is equipped with properly comfortable mattresses and high quality bed linen. The water pressure and supply in the bathrooms is excellent, and the unobtrusive air conditioning was a life-saver on some of the stickier nights. We got a few mosquito bites in the evenings, but then we weren't religious about spraying ourselves, and I've had far worse in much less idyllic surroundings.
Of course this place is more than just a beautiful house. It has a really good sized pool, in which you can swim lengths as well as just muck about, and a very well designed shallow stepped end which our toddler loved. The views from the pool are unbelievably beautiful, and the outdoor pre-pool shower even has a hot setting!
There are lots of other bits to the estate to explore and enjoy, too. Down the hill from the house is a fantastic tree-house hidey-place, tennis court, trampoline, and wooded walks, which mean that you really could spend a good deal of your time here without needing to escape. We did make some day-trips to some lovely nearby medieval hill-towns and beaches, which were easy to get to and offered good eating and drinking. But really, you could dig in for a week here and not miss urban life at all.
The whole place is beautifully maintained by the lovely groundsman Parker and his friendly, gentle dogs, and was unobtrusively and efficiently cleaned mid-week.
We could not recommend this spot more highly for a relaxing, luxurious, tranquil and fun break for a family or extended group!
Outi and Mark were fantastic hosts. They helped us to organise our wedding in their fabulous house. Our guests and ourselves had the most incredible time and the house was everything we wanted for our special day. Also, they were very helpful with regards to recomending restaurants, places to visit, etc. We’d really recomend the Ullastret for anyone that is looking for an unforgettable place for their special ocasion or a family get together
