More about us

  1. We are a young (: couple with 2 great grown up sons. Jaume(54) is a Catalan sommelier and journalist and Sue (57)is an English actress and artistic director of a theatre Barcelona. Ferran is 24 and now lives away and Miquel is 19 and into theatre and circus. Neither boys travel with us much now (but we do often travel with my cousin and his partner who come over from Australia). We all speak Spanish, English and Catalan. We have swapped about 12 times now and love every minute of it! I's the best way to travel and experience new places. We are sure you will love this beautiful part of Spain.

Our country house is in Arbucies, in the province of Girona and just 1 hour from Barcelona city. We are set in a beautiful valley with fantastic scenery. The village has all amenities e.g. a local pool just 3 mins walk away, restaurants, shops and a 1 michelin star restaurant. You can go walking, mountain biking, play golf, horseriding and fishing and the nearest beach on the fabulous Costa Brava is just 30 mins away. The scenery around here is fantastic. There are many interesting places to visit like Vic, Banyoles, Empuries, Ripoll, Núria, etc. It is just 40 mins from historic Girona with its old Jewish quarter and river and the Dali museum is 1hr15 away at Figueres. Madrid is 2hr30 on the fast train. operates out of Girona airport only 30 mins away connecting you in under 2 hrs to Paris, Venice and London. Barcelona airport is an 1'15 drive away connecting you to the rest of Europe and the french border is just over an hour from our house.
