Can Santaló is one of the most beautiful holiday homes we have stayed in over many years of renting holiday accommodation in southern Europe. It is set in spectacular surroundings with 360 degree
views of the mountains and countryside - the heavenly view is even possible from the bed upstairs! The stone work and the beams are full of so much character. The care and attention that the owners
have put into taking this from a ruin to this fantastic home is clear.
The house is extremely well equipped. The furniture is tasteful, solid and comfortable – indeed the beds are as comfortable as any boutique hotel we have stayed in. The outside space is just as
stunning, with the big garden (plenty of places to hide away), the lovely pool and the large bbq/poolhouse for dining in or simply sheltering from the sun – or as the case may from time to time,
watching the lightning.
The house is a perfect base for travel throughout the local area - up into the mountains or down to the sea; assuming you can pull yourself way from the house! There are plenty of good dining
possibilities in the area and there are even two welcoming traditional bars in the village, as well as two wineries (we only visited one (Masia Serra), and can highly recommend a tour).
We are seriously considering our return visit, perhaps even some winter when we can get to test out the wood burners and the under floor heating.
Can Santaló really is stunning.
