Next to (1 mile from) La Bisbal in a tiny medieval village with lush scenery, best beaches (15 km/9 miles away), quiet village living.
With 4 bedrooms plus bonus dormitory room/family room with an adjoining deck looking out on the countryside. Comfortably sleeps 11. It has three baths, and a remodeled kitchen. It also has a large stone vaulted dining room off the kitchen. It has a spectacular view from the town's original 13th century watch tower and inviting terrace. Spacious and quiet enough for yoga practitioners, insulated enough for boisterous parties, and medieval enough that many of our young guests have called it "Hogwarts."
There is an additional stone cottage adjoining to accommodate groups of 13 for a surcharge.
This home is perfect for the budget conscious traveler or group who enjoys authenticity and village life, but proximity to world class dining, beaches and cultural offerings.
For the more active traveler, Girona is a center for cycling, both road and mountain. Hiking trails have been well developed in the area. There is world class golfing in Pals. The house and area are ideal for any time of year, since there is radiant heat in the home and the year round beauty of the country side. We've had guests stay for a weekend, weeks, or even months. IDEAL FOR A BARCELONA DWELLER or family to escape the city for the quiet to work, hike, relax, and regroup. Can Torre is also an ideal home base for other European travel, since it is close to the French Border and 20 to the Girona airport which has cheap flights to destinations all over Europe.
