  • We had a lovely stay with Xavier and his daughter. He truly opened his home to us, we cooked meals alongside him and he was very generous in allowing us a late check out time as we completed some trip planning work and connected with our families. He even lent us two bikes to take around to the neighboring villages, which we enjoyed very much. His home and the surrounding area were very charming and beautiful. It was one of our favorite stops along our trip through Europe!

  • Our stay at Xaviers place was very special. It is a warm place and we felt at home immediately. Mainly because of Xaviers introduction of himself and his wonderful house and of course his lovely daughter. It was a pitty that we had so little time to stay around, explore the surroundings and get to know eachoter a little bit more. But for the time we had and spend there, it was great!

  • The unfortunate thing about my stay with Xavier was that I only stayed 1 night (due to a packed travelling schedule) at his beautiful home in Casavell. As soon as I arrived I couldn't get over how gorgeous the little town and his cozy house was.

    Since I arrived slightly late and was tired from travelling, I wanted an early rest and did not plan to step out to find dinner (I also do not usually cook, unless it is instant noodles, which I didn't have). Xavier was very kind to prepare an additional portion for me!

    Also a pity I did not get to meet his daughter, who was away at school in Girona. Already hoping I will get the chance to come back to this idyllic place again!

  • We had a lovely time staying with Xavier in his Medieval village. It's a quiet and hauntingly beautiful place.
    The accommodations are clean and spacious, and we were welcome in the kitchen where we made dinner together.
    Xavier helped us plan our trip on his computer. We enjoyed his company, his beautiful house, and his charming village.

  • What a great experience! I had never used airbnb before, and wasn't sure what to expect. Xavier is a fantastic host, friendly, helpful and easy-going. You can tell, he's enjoying having people stay at his place. The house is very cozy, private bedroom and bathroom very comfortable and all perfectly located in an idyllic Spanish village. Truly a home away from home. I highly recommend both host and place. Thank you, Xavier!

  • A very wonderful stay in Xavier's home. Comfortable... Relaxed.. Aesthetically lovely. A wonderful host to go with the wonderful location and accommodation.. Thank you Xavier for the lovely wine and food and talks. Wild nettles, pomegranate and mint grow at roadside and a big long walk is a must!

  • Vueltas y más vueltas en la oscuridad..."Winter is comming" will say someone...Dark was upon us suddently...La Fleca de la plaça del poble (Casadevelles, (email hidden) il.luminar. De entre las callejas, Xavi. Rostro franco, ojos curiosos y una gran sonrisa. He leaded the way, behind the old door...wonderland! S'ha de ser molt totxo per no admirar el lloc: massive kitchen (gracias por esas noches de vino... no despejamos la incertidumbre y te creé otra!) light and windows all over the place, but the brightest light was about to come: Janna, sentada detras de un gran bol de ensalada. Her eyes moved fast checking us out: we'd got the ok. Más sorpresas:-" How are you Janna?"- Su inglés es definitivamente mejor que el de mi antiguo profesor de instituto...solo que ella tiene 9 años. Matí, bè, migdia, total llibertat de fer el que volguem, el paisaje acompaña, las uvas de Xavi, todavía más. We come back later in the evening, nothing has changed; even better time than the night before. Bacco acompaña y la conversación fluye. Two days has passed already and we have to leave, such a pitty. Qualsevól que cerqui un lloc ùnic, diferent, con buena gente, dispuesta a compartir una copa de vino, this is your place: solters, couples, viajeros empedernidos... Xavi and Janna will make you feel at home, at their home, and that comes as a compliment. Para los miedosos o poco convencidos; aquest misssatge ha estat escrit en tres llenguatges, why would I do such thing?;)

  • I had a lovely time with Xavier and Ganna! I spent 5 days in their welcoming home and I would wholeheartedly recommend it. The room is spacious with a really good comfy bed. You get that awesome bathroom for yourself and use of the kitchen. The house is clean and well looked after.

    From day one I was made to feel like home, Xavier kindly offered me dinner on the first night of my visit and we also shared dinner on another night.

    The village is beautiful and very near other picturesque villages, towns and also a drive away from lots of stunning beaches and 20mins on the car to Girona. It's a great location if you want to explore the area and use this as a base.

    The owner at the village shop sells his own fruit and veg which is free from chemicals etc and in there you can also get your basics. A couple of kms away there's a proper big supermarket as well.

    It's an excellent way to get to know an area and I would definitely go back.

    Many, many thanks to Xavier & Ganna!

  • Xavier was very welcoming. He quickly got me connected to WiFi, a comfortable place to sit and made me feel very welcome. His place is amazing, a home with that feels unique and familiar at the same time.

    The bed was comfortable, the sheets soft, the bath tub was long (but just a a little shy of enough hot water for a long soak).

    I would highly recommend a stay at his place.

  • Xavier was great, very tolerant with us needing explicit directions. We actually found his village very easily but still ended up outside another house and he came and found us on his bike.
    We loved his little house and his daughter Janna is a delight, so full of enthusiasm and life.
    Would definitely recommend you visit with them. Its a lovely small village and his recommendation for dinner in Rupia was brilliant. Food was the best and the people very nice too.
