It makes Valles Oriental holiday homes especially versatile, appealing to all kinds of holidaymakers – those who want to take cultural or gastronomic tours, active tourists who’d like to scale the peaks at Montseny or La Mola, or families who can’t resist the lure of sun, sea and sand. Whatever your plans, cottages in Valles Oriental serve as a peaceful retreat, thoughtfully appointed with today’s conveniences, with many also providing relaxing gardens and private pools.

Things to do

-Local heritage. The modernism movement, which took place at the turn of the 20th Century, furnished the Valles Oriental area with some fabulous architecture. Impressive examples can be seen in Granollers, Cardedeu, La Garriga and Figaro-Montmany. You can even follow the Ruta Raspall, a route that takes in the best local works of the architect Manuel Joaquim Raspall i Mayol, who was very active in the area in the early 20th Century.

-Outdoor recreation. Valles Oriental is a low-lying area, but you won’t be far from some beautiful hills. The Ruta Els 3 Monts (route of the three mountains) passes right through the area. It links the legendary Montserrat with La Mola and Montseny, on a course that is 100 kilometres in length and broken down into six stages. What makes the trail special is the landscape, which changes slowly as you pass from peak to peak.

-Gastronomy. There are more than 30 markets across the region, where you can purchase seasonal fresh produce as well as locally-crafted artisan products. Valles Oriental has been a corridor for travellers for millennia, and this has made the area open to new ideas. Many of the best restaurants here serve traditional Catalan cuisine, but with modern twists. Key local products include Alella wine, white beans, olive oil and a sausage made exclusively in the town of La Garriga.

-Coast. The coastline north of Barcelona has a fantastic infrastructure – gorgeous sandy beaches are complemented by vibrant resort towns, home to great restaurants and all the shops you could need. There are also golf courses, the nearest being Llavanera near Mataro. One of the best and nearest beaches can be found at Calella, which has Blue Flag status, as does El Masnou.

-Barcelona. Great road and public transport links from Valles Oriental mean there’s no excuse not to visit one of Europe’s most dynamic and stylish cities. For shopping expeditions there’s nowhere like it, with everything from one-off boutiques in Gracia to plush fashion houses in Eixample. Sights and culture are abundant, but the many outlandish works of modernist architect Antoni Gaudí are a must.

The kitchen is small but well-equipped with an excellent fridge freezer and good supply of hot water. The electric cooker was in great condition too as was the dish-washer. The excellent coffee machine was appreciated. Plenty of crockery and glasses. Bedrooms were comfortable with good beds and lovely crisp white sheets. The x2 ensuites were a huge bonus and the showers were very good. The rood terrace was also a huge bonus and a real sun-trap. Paca, the host, was absolutely brilliant - helpful and friendly throughout the entire process, from booking to checking us into the property. Her colleague who checked us out as we were leaving was equally commendable. Many thanks to both of them. The town itself is wonderful with excellent restaurants, cafés and shops. Everyone is very welcoming and helpful. We felt very much at home in this community. I will mention just a few little things would have made our stay even better, if that is possible. These can easily be remedied. In the absence of a kettle for boiling water, a small saucepan with one handle would be very useful to make pouring easier. A few condiments such as salt, pepper, oil would be greatly appreciated too as would a bottle of water in the fridge on arrival on a hot day ... Only one of the blinds in the living area was working - (this was not a problem as the apartment was naturally bright in any case and the air-con was very efficient) - except for the one in the lower bedroom which didn't provide much black-out and unfortunately there is a bright light on the wall just outside this room ... We spent a fabulous week here in the catalan sunshine and really hope to return next June - we will book up again soon! Thank you very much!

There were a few bits and pieces in the kitchen cupboards so we didn't to have to start from scratch for cooking ingredients. The pool was great and not busy when we wanted to use it and. The only thing to point out was that the apartment is on the second floor and so would have been tricky for some people. The beach was beautiful and a genuine ten minute walk and was not busy either. A few nice local eating places although it took us a little while to get used to the later eating time in the evening (8.30) and shops. Communication with Rose was excellent and very helpful. All in all we had a thoroughly lovely time and would definitely recommend the apartment.
