“Everything we could have wished for - with bells on!!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This was our third stay at Can Cruanyes in the last year and we have every intention of returning. We have spent a week there each time and definitely see it as a destination home, well worth the short drive from Girona Airport. Unpack, stock up with local produce and good wines, then relax!

We have now booked Holly twice and absolutely love it. The interior is light and spacious, with two double bedrooms and a small and well equipped kitchen. If you intend cooking, there is an excellent hob and oven in addition to a microwave. There were only two of us, but the apartment seemed more than adequate to accommodate two couples or a family, especially with a separate toilet room in addition to the one in the shower room. When not out visiting the local towns, villages, coast and countryside, we spent the time on our lovely terrace immediately outside. There’s a huge parasol for shade on hot, sunny days, a dining table and comfy chairs for eating al fresco. With woods on one side and mountains ahead, the setting is delightful. In May, when we visited, we enjoyed the fragrant waft of the jasmine hedge alongside Holly, particularly on warm evenings. And at night it was so relaxing to listen to the crickets chirping and owls hooting – if it’s a clear night it’s perfect for stargazing as there is so little light pollution. On this latest visit, being spring, we were also lucky to hear cuckoos in the morning and other birds, including a mysterious sonar-sounding one, throughout the day and sometimes the night, too.

If the clouds come down or the wind whips up, or it’s a bit chilly it’s very comfortable inside, particularly if you light the woodburning stove, which heats up quickly and gives off a warm glow. In reality, we didn’t need it as there is central heating, but it’s so cosy. The furniture is a well-balanced blend of modern and traditional, as is the decor, with traditional ceramic tiles and solid attractive wooden doors and shutters inside.

The property is set in large grounds where we wandered around admiring the fruit and other trees and shrubs or generally lounged around. There’s also an outdoor swimming pool and other facilities outside, including table tennis. It seemed an ideal spot for children, too, with swings, sandpit etc. There’s an expanding herb garden providing the perfect ingredients for the barbecue marinades!!

Anyone visiting this area won’t be there just by chance and will have their own ideas of the type of places they want to visit and/or activities they want to pursue, so no need to recommend any of our favourites. However, we would advise an early visit to the tourist office in the centre of Olot to get local maps and information. The assistants are very knowledgeable and helpful and you can ask for details of any local events going on, there is usually a village fair or market. Apart from local attractions, including volcanoes, Olot is excellent for stocking up on provisions with several supermarkets and smaller shops selling specialist food and drink.

Donny and Siobhan, the hosts, are more than welcoming and will advise on other local sites, events, activities etc. and are extremely helpful in all respects. They live there, too, so are on hand if you have any queries or concerns and they are genuinely keen for guests to have a positive experience of both Can Cruanyes and the area. We had a small blip with the central heating and within minutes of informing Donny he was there with a bag of tricks and got it sorted. Excellent service all round!!

We are a Danish family of four including two teenagers. We spent a great week in Can Cruanyes and enjoyed our stay very much. The Garrotxa area is very interesting with both exciting nature for walks and cities like Olot, Besalú and Girona and Figueres close by. The hosts Donny and Siobhan are very helpful if your need ideas or have questions.
We combined our stay at Can Cruanyes with additional days in Barcelona and time on the beaches of Costa Brava. This mix can be recommended!

“Ideal location”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Around 40 minutes from Girona airport this delightful property offers a range of self catering accommodation. Reasonably equipped and comfortable for the 2 of us. We have stayed here before and returned because we enjoyed the area so much. Brilliant walking in the volcanic region centred on Olot, 20 minutes away, Figures in under an hour and not too far from the coast either. We were also treated to the wonderful night time experience of Nightingales calling in the nearby woodland.

“The best ever...outstanding experience of our 3 months in Spain.”
Reviewed 12 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

If you want a self-catering apartment in a rural, almost remote, location, you cannot do better than this. We stayed in May, and were the only guests for a few nights, so a wonderful quiet pervaded the area. By the looks of the pool and small soccer pitches, if you come in high season, you should bring the kids or be ready for the sounds of children at play.
Washing machine, good kitchen tools, great bed, fireplace in the living room, and hiking, hiking, hiking. The hosts are Irish and completely gracious, so if you speak English, you have someone to talk to in a region where almost everyone speaks Catalan. If you are lucky, you will even have the world's cutest dog to keep you company on your walks.

We would like to thank Dzinks for his review of Can Cruanyes. In order to keep the high standards we attain to at Can Cruanyes for guests comfort and satisfaction we addressed all his issues hopeful of non occurrence in the future.

Regarding the sunbed issues, more have been purchased and any guest using the pool will have a sunbed available to them.

The guests that were staying during Dzinks stay were an exception and thankfully not the norm in Can Cruanyes. Also the BBQ is now in a new area for the enjoyment of our guests.
