Estuvimos en casa de Roger cuatro amigos para pasar Semana Santa. La casa está perfectamente acomodada, y estuvimos muy a gusto, además está restaurada muy bonita con mucho gusto. La ubicación es perfecta ya que está muy cerca de todos los lugares de interés turístico de la zona, tanto de playa como de montaña. El pueblo es tranquilo y se descansa muy bien. Tanto María (primero) y Roger (después), se mostraron muy hospitalarios y nos dieron consejos de la zona, además de interesante conversación e historias. Repetiríamos sin duda, y lo recomendamos 100%.
It was fantastic. I could not imagine how perfect would be my travel, and the house was a dreaming coming true. It is very clean, the rooms are very big, and the patio is the best place to have your meals.
We had the most wonderful time in this beautifully restored house in the authentically medieval village. The location is serene, the house is beautifully decorated and very spacious with plenty of room for five people that were in our group. Beds are very comfortable with nice and clean linen; well-equipped kitchen; delightful patio. Amazing Lake Banyoles is a short ride away as well as as other area attractions. Special thanks to very helpful, friendly and accommodating hosts!
Una estancia perfecta. La casa es agradable, con todos los detalles, cómoda y con encanto. Roger fue un anfitrión disponible y cuidadoso. El pueblo es bonito, con acceso fácil para realizar excursiones al monte y a la playa. Animales, huerto, un patio en el que leer y silencio que escuchar. Hasta los vecinos son hospitalarios y realzan la simpatía de esta alojamiento. Toda la familia lo pasó estupendamente.
We had a great stay in the barn! Great location on the square in an old village...very quiet! Accommodation was as expected but WiFi did not work at all...disappointing as one need to do research on the area at night. As Jana was not there her father stood in for her and he was a great host.
Thanks very much.

PS: Roger's recommendation for a good restaurant in Banyoles was spot on! One of the best meals we had in Spain!
Sometimes we have some troubles with wiffi, tha'ts true, especially for smartphones or Ipods, because the old stone walls of our home are too thick, but not for pcs as we have an electrical connection to Internet that works well if you connect it to your pc. Nevertheless, we have to try to improve it by other means.
Roger is a fantastic host, very kind. The house is lovely and well located, close to beach and cities like Girona and Figueires. Also the house stays nice and cool in the summer heat. would love to go again!
Terrific visit. Roger was super accommodating with check in as he lives next door. He speaks many languages and has nice suggestions for the area. The house is special. Very clean and the bed is one of the few that was solid and quality, the shower too had warm water and real pressure. No a/c and the windows open we were a buffet for the mosquitoes. They had bug spray which was nice but it didn't help. Location was ideal. In a quiet small community of maybe a dozen homes but driving day trips we went to the coast and to France. A haribo factory store nearby was fun. There were even boys in the neighborhood that enjoyed hanging out with our 14 and 17 year old sons. Overall very peaceful and quiet and just what we were looking for. Thanks!
About the Host, Roger
My name is Roger. I am a freelance UN translator living in Girona. I have recently renovate an old barn in a quiet village of Catalonia, not far from Costa Brava and the Pyrenees. A perfect place to rest and visit many interesting sites.
