Margarit's ancestral home is simply stunning. The grounds are in lovely condition, so too is the accomodation in which guests are housed. The house is 'off the beaten track', which suited us well coming from busy Hong Kong. Nothing was too much for our hosts Margarit and her daughter Anna. Margarit does not speak English but Anna is fluent. Both are absolutely charming, and made us feel part of their family. Anna's response time on any enquiries, whether about the house or what was around 'tourist' wise, was fantastic. There is a tiny market town within very easy walking distance, and some delis and other 'local' patiserries, butchers and so on a short drive away. You'll need to drive around and explore. Bordils is, in our view, ideally positioned, with it being no more than an hour or so driving distance from Barcelona, Girona, and some very picturesque towns such as Pals, Besalu and Cadaques (all recommended by Anna, and now us) So, all in all, a lovely weeks holiday for our family. We would have no hesitation in recommending this 'gem' to anyone.

Our teenage boys had a great time in the pool and the wi fi was good. The area has plenty to see if you are prepared to drive. Terry and Gloria are welcoming and informative hosts.
