"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

"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!

"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

"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.
