Our stay at Mas Costa was everything that we hoped it would be! The masia is indeed medieval (probably with roots into the earlier centuries) and has enough space for any group, small or large, to spread your wings! James and Kaire were consummate hosts and did everything possible to make our stay special. One is easily an hour's drive from the Costa Brava, Girona, and Ripoll, while Barcelona is less than an hour more by the autoway. But, Besalu and the surrounding area already have enough to hold you -- and fire up your imagination! -- for days.
We are a family of 5 (children aged 11,12 and 15) who stayed at Masia Quelet in july 2018. We had a blast!
The old house has been beautifully restored while still keeping its original charm. Although we didn’t use it, the ground floor has a kitchen, bathroom, dining room and 3 living spaces. The main floor has 3 bedrooms, a complete bathroom, a living room, a dining room, a well equipped kitchen and a terrace that leads to the backyard. And then the backyard!! The pool is so inviting and the grassy area is big enough that we could play soccer and frisbee... at the same time! The house is located next to a fairly busy road, but we stopped hearing the noise very quickly. A tip for dealing with the hot and humid weather: open all doors and windows early in the morning and close them after an hour.
There’s so much to do in the area! Don’t miss the Dali museum in Figueres, Girona, a hike in the mountains, Besalu village and Olot. There are 2 highend restaurants nearby: Les Cols (2 michelin stars) and our personal favorite Cal’enric (1 michelin star). Casa Nasia, just down the road, was a great meal to mark the end of our stay.
Angels is a wonderful host and provided us with great recommendations. We would love to come back!
