“Rustic Setting in Tortella, Catalunya”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Can Cruanyes is comprised of 4 apartments, of which “Cherry,” where we stayed for a week, is, with one bedroom, the smallest. CC is in a rural, but not entirely remote setting, with several other residences / small guest houses nearby. The property includes a large, mostly grassy area in front of the structure with a small swimming pool, barbecue, chairs and swing set and more for children. The setting is pretty, if not dramatic, in the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. It is within an hour’s drive or less to the “real” mountains, picturesque towns and villages, and the historic and popular tourist destination, Besalu. I believe Olot is the closest nearby town for choices regarding real supermarket shopping, although it is not easy for the uninitiated to navigate.
We stayed at Can Cruanyes for a week. Far and away, the strongest positive about Can Cruanyes is its owner-manager, Donny, who is in residence on the property. He is very personable, helpful, and seriously focused on his guests enjoying his place. He is a native English speaker and has lots of tips on stuff in the area to do. The accommodations themselves are rustic functionally and in design, in keeping with a country setting. It has the feel of being more designed for families and groups than couples. The bath is small, with just a shower and limited shelf space. We found Internet connections spotty and slow but manageable. Sleep quality was a problem, with noise from adjacent apartments. A neighbor’s dog which developed an affection for us and slept all night on our small porch got riled up one (very) early morning which we could have done without. (Incidentally, the dog is a real sweetheart and is reported to be a retired circus performer jumping through hoops of fire and the like.)
Can Cruanyes is, for us, not a destination residence, i.e., we would not return to this area just to stay here. But if we were to return to this area, we’d consider staying again at CC.

Thank you for your review of your stay and thanks for your kind words regarding Can Cruanyes. It's a pity that Can Cruanyes didn't exactly fulfil your expectations. Maybe a more isolated, remote spot, further into the Pyrenees would have been a better match for you.

We have taken steps to improve the storage in our bathrooms. We've also improved our Wifi availablity. All rooms and terraces now have complete coverage.

And of course we would be delighted to see you again if you do decide to come back!

“Tranquil beautiful place in amazing surroundings.”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had a two night stop here on the way further south.
Donny welcomed us we had a good chat.
Beautiful place and the accommodation was excellent. The weather was glorious for October and we had our meals sat outside in the wonderful gardens.
Will use this place again as we travel south as it is perfect and convenient.
Best wishes to Donny and his lovely family.

October is one of my favourite times of year here. Its the time that the colours are changing on the trees to a more autumnal hue giving it a different feeling to the Summer. And some great sunshine can be had as well of course. Thanks for coming.

“Ilia, the circus dog”
Reviewed 29 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Driving up the driveway of Can Cruanyes gave us a feeling of tranquility and freedom! Lot's of space around, a nice swimming pool and an awesome bbq space with a spectacular view over the hills.
The house was big enough for the three of us, we stayed at Cherry for one week, very homey!! The only little thing we missed were mosquito screens infront of the windows, we did not want to sleep with open window because of this reason.

The bbq place was awesome!! We had the whole place for ourselves and an amazing view. The swimming pool was frequently all for ourselves too. It was perfect!
Ilia, the dog always went along with us. She sat infront of our house in the morning, waiting for us to wake up. When we were away and came home she was happy to see us, just like it was our own dog! We heard she was a circus dog who jumped through hoops of fire. It was very funny to hear this because Ilia didn't look like a circus dog, she was now retired and enjoying her quite living @ Can Cruanyes. :)
There was a cool natural pool nearby between the rocks which was awesome! Mostly crowded by a few locals. A few spanish people were climbing up a steep rock barefoot and jumping off, including a boy of 150 kilo. You can imagine the wave that gave. ;)
We visited Besalu which is a very lovely medieval city with some nice restaurants and shops. We also visited Banyoles which was said to have a lake to swim in but it was a paid area with fences and we didn't like that. We thought Banyoles wasn't that special. Girona was GREAT! And of course we visited the Dali museum which everyone should absolutely DO!! We went for the night opening with our 8 year old daughter. She was fascinated every minute of it and of course we were too!

Long story short, we had a blast that week @ Can Cruanyes!

Hi Minzina,

Thanks for the review although I think it was spoken through the words of your lovely little daughter! Sorry about having no screens on the windows. We do provide mosquito nets but I guess you didn't spot them. Hope to have you back soon!

Thanks,

Donny
