Can Cruanyes is a unique holiday escape, immersed in the rich culture and stunning scenery of the Spanish Pyrenees, and perfectly situated between the mountains and the exquisite beaches of the Costa Brava.

From the ruins of the 400 year old farmhouse, three beautifully restored apartments have emerged, each retaining its own individual historic charm, while embracing some of the modern touches of interior design.

Secluded in twenty acres of peaceful woodland and paddocks, this Catalan farmhouse is a perfect destination for families. The large swimming pool, play area and games garden all have views up to the imposing peaks of the mountains or down to the valley beyond.

The apartment has its own private terrace boasting fantastic mountain view where you can dine alfresco or enjoy a glass of local wine under the stars.

Off season stays let you discover this beautiful setting from a whole new perspective with autumnal colours and log fires at night. There is something for people at Can Cruanyes all seasons.

"Everything we could have wished for - with bells on!!"

This was our third stay at Can Cruanyes in the last year and we have every intention of returning. We have spent a week there each time and definitely see it as a destination home, well worth the sho… More

Thanks. Someone should take a pen to writing books I think!

"Tranquilidad en una excelente ubicación"

Es la segunda vez que visitamos Can Cruanyes y nos encanta ver que después de 3 años sigue teniendo el mismo encanto. La casa está situada en un lugar muy tranquilo pero a poca distancia de las pob… More

"Destress in a nice place in an interesting area of Spain"

We are a Danish family of four including two teenagers. We spent a great week in Can Cruanyes and enjoyed our stay very much. The Garrotxa area is very interesting with both exciting nature for walks … More

What is great about the region is the variety of things to do with something to suit all tastes. If only holidays were that bit longer sometimes!

"Fabulous quiet Pyrenee retreat"

Beautiful property set in well maintained gardens with atmospheric Pyrenean views. Very quiet, tranquil location but basic services available in Tortilla (5 mins drive) and stunning medieval towns/villages and cities all under 30 mins drive. Well served road network makes easy driving from Barcelona. Incredibly friendly and welcoming owners Donny and Siobhan made it a very special week!

Thanks for coming and taking the time out to write the review.

"The best ever...outstanding experience of our 3 months in Spain."

If you want a self-catering apartment in a rural, almost remote, location, you cannot do better than this. We stayed in May, and were the only guests for a few nights, so a wonderful quiet pervaded t… More

Thanks for the review. Yes Catalan tradition is quite strong in the locality making it an interesting part of Spain to live.

"A house in the wild - fantastic out of season - the less guests the better"

I would recommend the house to a friend of mine but under one condition: If you want the 2 bedded appartment - the best will be if the 3-bedded is free.
The house is fine, the pool too (however may lack of sun-decks if everybody deceide to sunbath) - no problem if one can switch the pool time with neighbours.
The internet connection is rather on a slow side, but it is.
Very good info package prepared by the owner on local points of interest, destinations and eating possibilities.
What we liked the least:
the other holidaymakers beneath our windows - loudness sometimes till 1AM +BBQ+ smoking cousing us to keep windows shut even at night despite of the heat inside

We would like to thank Dzinks for his review of Can Cruanyes. In order to keep the high standards we attain to at Can Cruanyes for guests comfort and satisfaction we addressed all his issues hopeful of non occurrence in the future.

Regarding the sunbed issues, more have been purchased and any guest using the pool will have a sunbed available to them.

The guests that were staying during Dzinks stay were an exception and thankfully not the norm in Can Cruanyes. Also the BBQ is now in a new area for the enjoyment of our guests.
