Why Donny chose Sales de Llierca
Well it was actually my father who spotted and restored the house originally. After running it for a number of years and feeling like Catalonia was our new home, we purchased it from him.
What makes this Apartment unique
The setting is idyllic with some nice mountain views. The large gardens give the place great scope for doing various projects that appeal to everyone from couples to the kids.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
The owners are very welcoming and accomodating. The property and gardens are lovely and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. Good for walking and not far from several places of interest by transport. It is worth considering that the apartments are all in close proximity so you do get up close with your neighbours.
Beautiful property in tranquil setting
This is a wonderful spot to stay and relax but is still within reach of plenty of attractions - countryside, towns and the coast isn't too far away. From the moment we arrived Donny and his family made us feel very welcome and it was clear that they wanted us to enjoy our stay. It really did feel like we were sharing the facilities in their house. The property is well equipped and has a private space outside for eating and relaxing. The pool is a useful addition - particularly given the hot weather we experienced. There is also a large space with toys and playhouses and a barbecue area, so there is plenty of room for children to burn off any spare energy.
There were a couple of things that needed attention while we were there but Donny was on hand to get them sorted.
We certainly found it an advantage that the property remained a pleasant temperature even on the hottest days - old houses with thick walls have their advantages!
It is a few years since the property was modernised - so don't expect everything to be brand new. Nevertheless we would be happy to recommend it.
Thank you to Donny and the family.
Peaceful, relaxing and well equipped
We spent a great few days at Can Cruanyes and Donny was really helpful both before we arrived and once we were there. The apartment was perfect for our family, well equipped (even with fresh bread, wine and coffee!) and well maintained. The pool, trampoline and jacuzzi kept us all happy. Would definitely recommend and only suggestion is perhaps a fan for the bedrooms on hot nights.
Beautiful home in a serene atmosphere
We enjoyed staying in this charming farmhouse. It was perfect for our family retreat. I have two seven year old boys who LOVED exploring and swimming in the pool. The location is perfect for little day trips to explore the surrounding areas. Donny was a fantastic host and provided loads of information on the area. Well worth it!!!!

Fabulous relaxing holiday apartment (Oak)
This apartment is even better than it looks online... Comfortable and spacious inside with a lovely large patio area outside. The pool is a great size for both kids and adults and the grounds and views are fab. Our kids couldn't believe their luck, going from pool to table tennis to BBQ and back again! Rock pool swimming nearby was a great hit and Bezalu is a beautiful little town for eating out in. Thanks to Donny, Siobhan and little Liam for a lovely, relaxing week.
Thanks for coming and a pleasure having you!
