The Studio Suite has its own private entrance and there is ample free parking. The pergola has wonderful views of the valley and is a shady haven for breakfast and an evening meal during the Summer. You are welcome to walk around the gardens, chill out in the new plunge pool, enjoy the garden hot spa or wander around the evergreen forest that surrounds us. Children always enjoy sharing in the egg collection from our poultry and playing with the dogs and cats that share our home. If you have a nervous member of the family we can slowly introduce them to the family. Our great location means that air conditioning is not needed in the Summer, but there are table fans. For winter there is central heating and a cosy extra woodstove. I love to cook so if you wish to watch the sunset at Can Torras and enjoy an evening meal made with the best of local ingredients, just let me know in the morning whilst you are planning your day out and I will have an evening meal ready for you at a convenient time. This is often great for families who can not adjust too well to late night Spanish dining times! I am a trained nutritionist so special diets are no problem at all. I try to live as sustainably as possible, so please ask about our organic gardening, solar panels, rainwater filtration system, reed bed, solar tubes & recycling methods if you are interested. If you would like a true taste of living in Catalonia, I offer an afternoon class in Catalan Cookery, Mediterranean Gardening or Sustainable Living. it's always a pleasure to pass on my passion for living in this beautiful part of the world! A word of warning, both Studio Suite bedrooms are reached up steep stairs so if you are a little unsteady on your legs choose our Can Torras Cottage Suite which is all on one level. The studio room is fine for babies and a cot is available whilst mum and dad enjoy the view! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: PG-000952More

Interaction with guests
Your host, Karen, lives on site and you will be sharing my home but a private entrance ensures your privacy when you need it. The garden, pool and jacuzzi will be shared with myself and other guests. After nearly 20 years here, I am happy to pass on suggestions for the day over breakfast to help guests explore all the wonderful things Catalonia has to offer. If you would like to experience an afternoon cooking Catalan food yourself, or learning about organic and sustainable living, then I am happy to pass on my passions.

About the neighbourhood
Can Torras rural retreat is surrounded by the cork trees of Gavarres Natural Park with fantastic views of the Llemena Valley in the volcanic Garrotxa region. Both areas are criss-crossed with trails for keen cyclists and walkers and from Can Torras there is an easy trail to Els Angels Sanctuary where the artist Dali was married where you will find great views of the Costa Brava. Within 30 minutes drive you will find some of the charming medieval villages that dot the region; Monells and Peratallada are particularly beautiful. It will take a whole day to explore the city of Girona, just 20 mins away and its winding streets hide dozens of speciality shops and of course lots of cafés and bars to rest along the way. If you have a week here then bustling Barcelona is a must and it is now just a...
Getting around
A car is essential if you are staying at Can Torras as we live in the middle of a National Forest with no public transport
