Restored Farmhouse, Spacious Pool , Lush Setting
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Can Cruanyes is a typical Catalonian farmhouse located in the foothills of the Pyrenees which has been recently restored and renovated into 3 individually styled apartments. 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. Here you can swim or sunbathe surrounded by the natural beauty of the mountain peaks and forests. The child friendly garden with swings, sandpit, ping pong and swing ball are great fun for both the young and the young at heart! Away from the pool, in the adjacent paddock you will find the bbq if you fancy testing your cooking skills even futher.
The apartment has its own private terrace 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.

"Lovely Peaceful Setting"
We stayed in Oak at Can Cruanyes for 1 week. The apartment was spacious and we enjoyed breakfasting on the terrace. Donny was a wonderful host and was happy to offer advice on the trips we planned. Ou… More
Thanks! The rock pools are a real favourite with guests. Its just a few minutes drive from the house or a 40 min walk.

"Calm and secluded setting"
We spent a week here and were extremely happy with the location and the property itself - so much so that we have booked to stay here again in the near future. Although there are three rental apartme… More
Thanks for your review and taking the time out. Installing dishwashers where on our to do list and they are now in all the apartments. Washing dishes while on holiday just doesn't sound like fun!

"Wonderful location, super-friendly hosts and an authentic apartment with very good facilities"
Can Cruanyes could not be better situated. It is within walking distance of the national park, which is blissfully quiet with only the sound of eagles and the river to disturb the silence. We spent many lovely hours swimming in the river near the apartment with our young children.
Donny and his wife, the managers of the property, could not have been more helpful and clearly love the area, which makes them very thoughtful hosts.
We were upgraded to the larger apartment, Oak, which was a lovely surprise. It includes a beautiful, secluded terrace; large kitchen with a big family table plus several sofas and a woodburner if you need it.
The children loved every minute of their stay - they loved the swimming pool and play area. We loved the seclusion and security of the property.
We would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants to get off the beaten track.
Thanks for the review! Yes we are located directly in the protected region of the Alta Garrotxa so there is some nice nature to be enjoyed just on the doorstep of Can Cruanyes.

We were disappointed in Can Cruanyes, The location is lovely, heading into the mountains in Catalonia, and the old, stone house is very attractive on approach from the drive. Facilities include a sw… More
We were obviously very disappointed when we received Sulman's review and of course very sorry that Can Cruanyes didn't meet the standards she was expecting. Regarding the table tennis, when it broke we immediately ordered a new one online but was only delivered after she left. We realise that the table tennis was meant to be a big hightlight for her family while here and can understand the upset was caused.
We are constantly maintaining / upgrading our 3 apartments and grounds here and have noted all the things said in the above review. Finally we would like to thank Sulman for her feedback.

"great accomodation beautiful location"
Very good accommodation, beautiful old house, equipped with everything needed for kids and adults. Useful info on the area, friendly owners. Picturesque location with walks near the property. Remote setting but well connected with good roads. Internet worked well. Nice working fire for winter visits. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommended.
Thanks for the review and see you again hopefully.

We stayed there for a week and enjoyed every day of it. The owners are very friendly and offer helpful advice from where to shop to what places to visit. There is so much to do there: you can have a b… More
Thanks for the review. Since your stay accessibility to the internet has improved greatly and you can connect now from all devices. The electricity was a pre planned cut off for a few hours by the local energy company. It was unfortunate it was during your stay particularly as you had a baby. Sorry about that.
