We had a wonderful week at Mas Vinyoles. The setting, in the Gavarres mountains, is splendid, with beautiful wide views of the surrounding hills and mountains. At the height of summer, hardly a car passes by the house during a whole day. The apartment - we were upstairs, in the four-person flat - was spotless, spacious and tastefully decorated, with great touches of style - the armchairs in the reading room, for example. Rooms are well proportioned, the beds comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The pool is delightful - beautifully landscaped with a lawn, plants and flowers. Butterflies dart between the flowers as you swim. Girona is close by, and, in the other direction are some of the beautiful beaches of the Costa Brava. This was a real find.
We spent a fabulous 2 weeks at Mas Vinyoles. The location is very peaceful and has beautiful views of the hills and beyond. If you enjoy getting away from it all but within easy reach of Girona or the coast then this location is for you. Kathrin (the owner) was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and places to visit. The apartment was well furnished, clean and had more than enough cooking equipment and utensils. The attractive garden and pool area were well maintained. The two bedroom apartment provided more than adequate living space for four people.
A wonderful peaceful place set in the wooded hills overlooking Girona. Just a 20 minute drive from Girona Airport and yet you feel that you are totally removed from it all. The farm house stands on a beautiful plot with private swimming pool next to a country lane that sees more walkers and cyclists than motorised vehicles (we saw three cars in 6 days). Kathrin, our host, was exceptional and lived in a second farm house just behind our own ... whilst she gave us all the space we wanted she was also available when we needed help, and nothing was too much trouble. Kathrin is originally from Switzerland but is fluent in Spanish and speaks near perfect English. The accommodation is split into 2 apartments (one two bedroom and the other three). Our apartment has 2 large bedrooms, 2 shower rooms, an open kitchen/dining/lounge area, and a separate sitting or reading room. It was very clean almost spotless and we felt at home straight away. The views from our windows were fabulous, our outside dining area was nestled within the trees, and there was a hammock tied between the trees close by which became my retreat. There are many supermarkets a short drive away, you are within an hour of numerous beach resorts, there are excellent roads and rail networks taking you down to Barcelona (a must ... Especially the old town), and for those who like to explore further a field there are many choices open to you from lakes in volcanos to water parks to historic towns and even a day trip to France. That said, for us and the children for the most part the swimming pool and gardens were enough and we spent many hours simply doing very little. A very big recommendation ... You will have a very enjoyable time.
