nice old country house
huge place. lovely caretaker Susanne who was very helpful with everything we needed during the week. the whole house could do with an update - very old bathrooms and furnishings made it quite dated. Would prefer normal rectangular pillows (not the sausage rolls that they have currently) and a nice light quilt rather than sheet and blanket. There was only 1 toilet roll in the bathroom and no soap at all by the handbasins in more than half the rooms (the rest are not ensuite anyway) and I think at the price paid Things like soap, loo roll and linen should be provided as part of the rental (linen was cahrged as extra). The outdoor kitchen is great but the main kitchen needs a bit of an update, it is well equipped but has an ancient dishwasher and an oven on which the door has to be wedged closed with a chair as it doesnt stay shut.
The lovely setting, spacious dining and seating areas and the helpful freindly caretaker made this a pleasant week but I dont feel it was great value for money for 11 of us (probably a different story if there are 20 or 30 of you).
Very nice, wonderful place, the view is amazing
Stunning property in sumptuous grounds. Heaven. On. Earth.
Fantastic place to get away from it all while being near it all with all life’s luxuries. Beautiful house, enormous grounds, excellent facilities. Recommended 100%
Thanks a lot, it was really a great pleasure to welcome you. And yes, you find the right words to describe Mas Sunyer short and to the point : Heaven.On. Earth. Best regards and I hope we'll see us again!
Beautiful, convenient, well organized and highly equipped.
Beautiful, convenient, well organized and highly equipped. suited for a large group (18 or more). very good for children. Small town, 5 minutes by car where you can find a small super-market and few restaurants. highly recommended!
Thanks a lot for being at Mas Sunyer! I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay and I hope we'll see us again! Warm regards, Susanne
Lovely Rural Charm
This was my first trip to Spain. After a few days in Barcelona, then the island of Majorca we wanted the country experience. Mas Sunyer is a delightful retreat tucked away in the hills This property is amazing, the scenery breathtaking and the accommodations were more lovely than in the pictures! One of my parts was having coffee on the sunny terrace every morning and being able to have the fireplace going in the evenings. The place was impeccably neat and well equipped. Well worth a stay. Susanne and Herbert were perfect hosts with great suggestions!! Would hope to return again.
I recommend the drive to Roses, Cadaqués, and the medieval village of Besalú.
Thanks a lot for your valuation, we were very pleased to welcome you and your nice friends at Mas Sunyer ! A first hint of Spanish autumn feeling after so many weeks of sun and heat, presented rain and sun, clouds and clear blue sky, impressed rainbows and shimmering morning dew. I'm happy that you enjoyed your first trip to Spain, the beautiful nature, the silence, the historic property of Mas Sunyer & it's surroundings and it would be great to see us again...may be here in Spain or in your beautiful country, Canada/ Vancouver.
An authentic and magical gem in the middle of nature.
Traditional estate set in nature among the Pyrenees. Close to many typical villages to explore off the beaten tourist track, but also an easy 1-2 hours to wonderful sites closer to the coast and in Barcelona.
We stayed in Casa Arte and found the entire Mas Sunyer experience a complete delight. Susanne is a superb hostess. All her advice of things to do and see were spot on for us.
The Casa kitchen is stocked with basics (thank you for the wine!). Main bedroom: Spacious with large ensuite bath; bed mattress perfect for us – firm but slightly soft. I appreciated the “dressing room”. 2nd bedroom: Small, but patio doors opening onto terrace give impression of more space. Main floor has large living area (comfy sofas) – could host a small yoga session in it. Would be cozy in the winter with the wood-burning fireplace. Dining area table comfortably seats 8-10. Ground level terrace: Table seating 8. Overall feeling is light, with high white walls, rich wood floors and interesting artwork.
We enjoyed the gorgeous pool, main house communal kitchen and toilets (closer to the pool), and swam all hours of the day and night! There are pool toys and loungers. I loved napping poolside under the large olive tree’s shade. Outdoor kitchen: Shaded with nighttime lighting; eating area easily seats 30+ people and looks onto the pool. The grounds are well kept and pathways lighted.
Main house: Some areas are shared by all guests (full catering kitchen, sitting areas, terraces). An assortment of rooms are available at Mas Sunyer – from self contained Casas, to single rooms for double occupancy (opening onto a lovely outdoor area and close to the pool!). Areas could be booked together for a small group or a couple of families.
The small village of Maçanet de Cabrenys is only a few minutes drive. You’ll find a fully stocked grocery open until 8 PM every day (we loved their fresh baked bread!), and several great restaurants, a superb “local products” shop La Mimosa, the standard Tabac and pharmacy, etc.
If you like to be away from the crowds and surrounded by nature, authenticity, comfort and charm, you’ll love Mas Sunyer.
I recommend Mas Sunyer for just about anything: group retreats (cooking, art, yoga), family gatherings and special events (weddings come to mind) as well as for a romantic or family get away. I would love this place at any time of year!
Thanks a lot for your recommendation! I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay! For sure, Mas Sunyer is a marvellous little piece of earth, beautiful situated in the middle of an unique landscape: mountains & the Mediterranean Sea, picturesque villages and selected wineries, art & culture, tradition & history shape the region of the Alt Empordà, near the Southern french border. And yes, you are right: its a beautiful place at any time of the year: Summertime is always great...sun, hot temperatures, blue sky, long nights...but springtime and autumn are so beautiful, when everything grows and blooms or the winter season with mild temperatures by day night and cozy evenings at the chimney fire.
Mas Sunyer guarantees its visitors the peaceful tranquility of the Mediterranean, picturesque mountains and easy access to the beautiful beaches of the Costa Brava. Very close also is the dam of Darnius. All active leisure activities at sea as on land, thus are available to visitors. Figueres, the capital of the Alt Empordà and birthplace Salvador Dalí is reached in 25 minutes. From there you can take the AVE, the express train to Barcelona center in just 45 minutes. The Alt Empordà is a leading wine region of Spain, known for its exquisite gastronomy, fine olive oils, its diverse flora and fauna, its dream beaches along the Costa Brava, diverse art and cultural offerings and is thus a cornucopia of holiday experiences, which we wish Bring guests closer to you thanks to exclusive partnerships in all these areas.
