About the property

Can Cruanyes

Can Cruanyes has been recently restored and renovated into 3 individually styled apartments (1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom). The preservation of characteristic stone walls and vaulted ceilings allow the blending of old world charm with modern comfort and convenience.

Can Cruanyes extends over 20 acres of woodland and paddocks which also host the spacious non overlooked swimming pool and outdoor hot tub. Here you can swim or sunbathe surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountain peaks and forests. The child friendly garden with swings, sandpit, football goal, trampoline and table tennis are great fun for both the young and the young at heart!

Each apartment has its own enclosed private terrace where you can dine alfresco while enjoying a glass of local wine under the stars. The BBQ and picnic area enjoy views from all sides, whether up to the mountain peaks above, down to the valley or across to our charming stone house.

We give you everything you'll need to feel at home, while still enjoying the comforts and ease of hotel-style convenience: from the WiFi internet and complementary toiletries to your own fully equipped kitchen - we have everything down to salad spinners and garlic crushers - if there's anything we forgot, tell us and we'll get one for you!

About Donny

I am Irish and moved to Spain 5 years ago with my partner. I have gone from a career in IT to a career in hospitality with no regrets!

Donny purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Donny chose Sales de Llierca

Well it was actually my father who spotted and restored the house originally. After running it for a number of years and feeling like Catalonia was our new home, we purchased it from him.

What makes this apartment unique

The setting is idyllic with some nice mountain views. The large gardens give the place great scope for doing various projects that appeal to everyone from couples to the kids.

Peaceful, relaxing and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

We spent a great few days at Can Cruanyes and Donny was really helpful both before we arrived and once we were there. The apartment was perfect for our family, well equipped (even with fresh bread, wine and coffee!) and well maintained. The pool, trampoline and jacuzzi kept us all happy. Would definitely recommend and only suggestion is perhaps a fan for the bedrooms on hot nights.

Beautiful home in a serene atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this charming farmhouse. It was perfect for our family retreat. I have two seven year old boys who LOVED exploring and swimming in the pool. The location is perfect for little day trips to explore the surrounding areas. Donny was a fantastic host and provided loads of information on the area. Well worth it!!!!

Fabulous relaxing holiday apartment (Oak)

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is even better than it looks online... Comfortable and spacious inside with a lovely large patio area outside. The pool is a great size for both kids and adults and the grounds and views are fab. Our kids couldn't believe their luck, going from pool to table tennis to BBQ and back again! Rock pool swimming nearby was a great hit and Bezalu is a beautiful little town for eating out in. Thanks to Donny, Siobhan and little Liam for a lovely, relaxing week.

Special place

  • 5 of 5

Can Cruanyes is a beautiful home located in picturesque place. We had there very good time! The owner is very kindly and helpful person and the apartaments are really well-equipped. We can recommend it for everybody - for people with children, for looking for peace and quiet and for active ones. Can Cruanyes is located very close to the most beautiful places in Catalonia - Besalu, Olot, Girona, Cadaques and even travel to Barcelona is no problem ( only 1,5 hour). We hope come back there again!!!

Polecamy szczerze wszytskim, pi?kne spokojne miejsce, bardzo mi?y w?a?ciciel i swietnie wyposa?ony dom!
