"Lovely Peaceful Setting"

"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.

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.
