Mireya and Carl are undoubtedly the most kind hearted and warm welcoming hosts we have met! They will bring you into their beautiful home with open arms and wide smiles and treat you like family! The house itself is incredible; a nice getaway for people who enjoy peace and quiet and the epic scenic views. Both Mireya and Carl offer a wealth of information about the surrounding area for hiking, biking, swimming or just visiting one of the many old towns in the region. Aside from this, they are good fun to just sit down with and get to know! The bedroom is both comfortable and clean as a whistle, with a relaxing vibe and plenty of privacy. Waking up in the morning is bliss in the countryside and playing with their two dogs Lola and Chespa is always good fun! Do not miss this place if you plan to stay in Girona! 10/10. Thank you for a memorable visit, Mireya and Carl! From Davie and Hannah.
I had a fantastic time with Mireya and Carl! They are exceptional hosts; inviting, kind, and just a lot of fun to spend time with. They are so accommodating, and very comfortable sharing their space with guests.
The home is in a perfect location for me... just a few minutes outside of Girona, peaceful and quiet, tucked away up on a hillside. But close enough such that it was very easy to head down to Girona for sightseeing and dinner. It was the perfect location for me to stay and enjoy both the city and the countryside.
I highly recommend staying with them!
We stayed three nights in Mireya and Carl's house. They have been very warm and welcoming with us and we enjoyed our stay very much. The room was spacious, with an attached bathroom. We have felt immediately at ease in their house. In the evenings, we could use the kitchen to cook our meals, and have interesting chats with them. The two dogs of the house are very cute and affectionate. We have spent a very nice time in their oasis of friendliness.
We had a wonderful time at Mireya's house. She and her husband were lovely hosts -- warm and engaging and fun to talk to. Plus they are full of good ideas for places to see.
It's the most beautiful setting and so so peaceful, surrounded by lush fields and wooded hills. All you can hear are birds and some noisy insects. We wouldn't hesitate to go back.
Our stay with Mireya and Carl was fantastic! They made us feel like part of the family in the best possible way. The dogs are adorable and the house is charming and peaceful. They were so helpful in helping us plan our time and find our way around. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in Pals and Perratallada. The conversation was great and we learned so much about the Catalan people and culture. It was definitely like staying with friends. If you enjoy getting out into the countryside and meeting real people, don’t hesitate to book a stay with Mireya and Carl. You won’t be disappointed!
This a wonderful place to stay! It's out in the countryside on a sheltered hilltop with wonderful views. Mireya and Carl welcome you with open arms and hearts!
The best part of our vacation to Girona/Barcelona was our time with Mireya & Carl and their daughter and two jack Russells! We felt like we were with family. We stayed for 10 days to bike in the area and while the biking was good we enjoyed most discussing Catalonian food and culture and the lovely nightingale birds and going to the farmers market and the interesting conversations with Mireya and Carl. The two jack Russells, chispa (LOVE you and miss you Chispa!!!) and Lola are so loving and it was nice getting some dog time in.
Both Mireya and Carl are very accommodating. Carl helped us with the map and bike routes and even called friends to verify routes. Mireya drove in the car to bring me an unbrella when I had gone walking and got caught in the rain. Mireya is a fabulous cook and taught me how to make a tortilla!! You cant find better people then Carl and Mireya!!!!
if you are looking for a quiet, rustic retreat with fabulous people, then this is your place! We highly recommend!
