This is a really special home that dates from the 1600. It has the character of an historic home but has been updated with modern conveniences. It is also quite large and comfortable and well kept. The Internet was a little spotty, but the owner was quick to respond and fix any problems. The town itself is quite small, but also charming with a lovely piazza on which the house resides. There is an excellent restaurant that is a two minute walk (if even that) from the house. The food is really quite good, and I would strongly recommend it for a week day lunch or weekend dinner. Vilaur is also well located to many great costa brava sites. L'Escala is only 15 minutes away and Girona and Figueres are also an easy drive.
Stayed here 5 years ago - 4 adults and 3 kids under 10 years. 5 Years on and they still recall the sound of the cow bells as a stampede would hurtle by them and they had to take refuge in the hut supplied for the purpose. Don't let that scare you, it's a safe place, and it might have been a little slower than your average stampede....
Spacious accommodation, wonderful historic building, in the typical architecture of the region. Clean, great kitchen and loads of bedrooms but we spent our time outdoors, dining poolside on the picnic tables, using the amazing wood burning BBQ with the wood replenished every day by the owners. Fantastic for kids.
Could get hot at night. Plug in fans helped but were noisy.
Quiet local area. Couple of local restaurants were fine serving typical local cuisine. Found an amazing restaurant on our last night but all eating out is a drive away for practical purposes. Long drive 10k or more to nearest supermarket or grocery. Everything a drive away but being in the heart of the country is nice.
About half an hour to the beach but the lido on the lake at Banyoles is really charming and a great place for swims and coffees or beers.
Banyoles and historic towns within half an hour. Vic is a magical place particularly and i cant recall the name of the other town beginning with B which had a big medieval style drawbridge (not really but that effect) to it. It was fantastic too.
Pool really fab and property really well maintained. Great for access from either Barcelona or Gerona and both well worth a day trip or overnight.
Charming owners even if their English was less than our poor Spanish!
