“We had a really nice time in Camprodon. The area is absolutely stunning and we loved the place. The swimming pool just around the corner were a nice bonus for our kids on the hot days and we enjoyed many small trips in the mountains and to local restaurants. Sal and Cris helped make our trip wonderful and we thank them a lot!”

About our home
Our cosy home is a semidetached house, on one of the most beautiful villages (called Camprodon) in the Pyrenees mountain range located in the north of Catalonia (Spain) next to the border with France.
In the beginning of the 20th century the rich families from Barcelona started to spend their holidays in Camprodon because of it being a wonderful old Roman village with a spectacular bridge, church, monasteries, etc. This period left a heritage of quaint and stylish hotels, villas, gardens, or promenades according to the interesting modernist style, like in Barcelona (Gaudi´s style).
Today, it is a friendly and elegant holiday town, where the affluent families from Barcelona spend their weekends and summer and xmas holidays. Moreover, it has a mild sunny climate, beautiful country side, green meadows, alpine mountains, natural fountains, crystalline rivers, and typical delicious meals!! All this and its fresh air and food and opportunities to do outdoor activities make it a very healthy and fun break.
It is a cheerful but peaceful family oriented village. A perfect spot to practise mountain activities such as trekking, mountain biking and skiing (in the winter) but also to go fishing, play golf (18 hole course), tennis, or go to the swimming pool… The swimming pool is 1 minute walk from the villa, and the golf course a 3 minute walk away.
On the one hand, there are sophisticated restaurants and on the other hand, there are also rural cosy restaurants, with its old tasteful recipes and tapas.
Barcelona is a only 100km away, whereas the cosy traditional French villages are less than 30km away. If you prefer the sea, at less than 1h from the marvellous Costa Brava!!!.
Our house is in front of new swimming pool, and beside the golf course. It is in a street where there are only semi-detached houses in the quietest are in Camprodon.
Our home has sun all the day, and a small back yard with a barbecue and raspberry and strawberry and other plants.

3 things they loved about the trip
- Really cosy, we felt right at home with our kids and really enjoyed the villa
- Camprodon is a beautiful place surrounded with other beautiful towns like Beget
- 1.5 hour drive to the sandy beaches of Costa Brava coastline
“Would not miss visiting the magnificent town Beget which is really close to Camprodon and the Dali museum in Figueres and Cadaqués which is a small seaside town on Costa Brava. Cristina and Salva are also really great people and were very generous hosts. We would really love to go there again some day.”
