"un endroit tranquille, aménagé avec gout et confort, dans une région préservée"

La fixation du rideau de douche est fragile. Mettre à disposition des locataires une carte de la région indiquant des promenades dans les environs serait agréable...… More

"Absolutely beautiful"

My husband and I stayed 2 weeks in Can Cruanyes. We only just got back from this hidden gem couple of days ago and already missing it.The setting of the property is picturesque - surrounded by hills a… More

Wow! Thank so much for writing the review and taking the time to do it. Having people who explore and appreciate the region like you did makes being a host of Can Cruanyes that bit more pleasurable.

"Rustic Setting in Tortella, Catalunya"

Can Cruanyes is comprised of 4 apartments, of which “Cherry,” where we stayed for a week, is, with one bedroom, the smallest. CC is in a rural, but not entirely remote setting, with several other … More

Thank you for your review of your stay and thanks for your kind words regarding Can Cruanyes. It's a pity that Can Cruanyes didn't exactly fulfil your expectations. Maybe a more isolated, remote spot, further into the Pyrenees would have been a better match for you.

We have taken steps to improve the storage in our bathrooms. We've also improved our Wifi availablity. All rooms and terraces now have complete coverage.

And of course we would be delighted to see you again if you do decide to come back!

"Tranquil beautiful place in amazing surroundings."

October is one of my favourite times of year here. Its the time that the colours are changing on the trees to a more autumnal hue giving it a different feeling to the Summer. And some great sunshine can be had as well of course. Thanks for coming.

Hi Minzina,

Thanks for the review although I think it was spoken through the words of your lovely little daughter! Sorry about having no screens on the windows. We do provide mosquito nets but I guess you didn't spot them. Hope to have you back soon!

"Great stay!"

We had a great holiday in Can Cruanyes! The house is very beautiful, very peaceful and there is much to see in the area. You can have beautiful hikes, cultural visits or just relax by the pool or the sea. The landlord is very nice and helpful. You can make very nice hikes in the Pyrenees, eg Nuria.

In dutch:
We hadden een geweldige vakantie in Can Cruanyes! Het huis is erg mooi, zeer rustig en er is veel te zien in de omgeving. U kunt mooie wandelingen maken, culturele uitstapjes maken of gewoon relaxen bij het zwembad of de zee. De verhuurder is erg aardig en behulpzaam. U kunt mooie wandelingen in de Pyreneeën maken, bijvoorbeeld Nuria.

Thanks for the review! Yes some great hiking trails located close to Can Cruanyes for those looking for an active holiday.

"Idyllic location, easy acces for Girona, Figures, Banyoles and Olot."

Well equiped, clean and tidy property. Adequate kitchen facilities, good bathroom and useful sized bedroom. Large swimming pool and sun terrace area with adjoining clothes drying lines. Attractive location at foot of hills, secluded and peaceful situation.

Less than 1 hour from Girona airport and excellent access to motorway serving Figures, Banyoles, Besalu and Olot. Supermarkets available in nearby towns, local shops and markets are closer but with a more basic range of commodities.

Don't miss Besalu, well worth a walk round the whole town by the river. If visiting Girona excellent food at Mimolet Restaurant on Pou Rodo below the cathedral.

Thanks for the review! Yes Can Cruanyes is well located for touring and seeing the local region. See you soon again!
