Recently restored with holiday rentals in mind, this lovely Mas offers a high level of comfort, including all the modern amenities, (washer and drier, dishwasher, satellite pay TV, nice BBQ & outdoor dining area, ping pong, etc), as well as the new 10x6m swimming pool with a long child-friendly shallow end, and a tennis wall (the Spanish play "fronton" - like Basque jai alai but with tennis rackets). A very comfortable and practical house at very competitive rates. 2 week minimum in high-season. With a day between rentals for cleaning, this house has variable changeover days. Free wifi & ADSL.

The Mas is situated a few hundred meters outside of the tiny hamlet of Estanyol, a couple kilometers by car or the bike path to shopping in Aiguaviva, and 8 kms southwest of lovely historic Girona and the markets and supermarkets there. The house and large grounds are completely private and you have no neighbors nearby. The pool and the tennis wall are under pine and holm oak (the owners sell cork to some of the big Catalan cava producers). There are very good restaurants in the area (you can walk to two restaurants in Estanyol itself, one of them quite nice and with an elegant terraced cafe just 500 meters from Mas Roca) and you can choose to shop in small specialty shops in nearby villages or go to the big supermarkets outside of Girona. Locals buy meats and breads and veggies and perhaps even wine by the liter in specialty mom n pop shops and only go to the supermarkets to stock up on basics.

The house: the villa is tucked just behind a curve in a little transited road between Estanyol and Bescanó, where there is a good horseback riding club with restaurant (and one guests wrote in to tell me there is a good wine shop there too - see the comments page). A dirth path winds around the front of the house, passing the swimming pool on the left, to the large parking area around to the back. One of the things I like about the house is that there are three entryways into the lower floor: 1) the rather grand wooden-planked main entrance into the central downstairs hallway 2) another nice old large doorway enters into the main dining room and kitchen area 3) and there is a back door in to the back passageway where the washing machine is kept which goes directly to the downstairs bedroom and bathroom.

As you would expect, there is an shaded outdoor sitting area with the BBQ just outside the entryway to the kitchen and dining room. The dining room has a long wooden planked table and benches seating up to 14 or so, with a fireplace nearby. Stone walls and beamed ceiling make it rustic and cozy in equal measure. The kitchen is right next to the dining table but in a separate room. The kitchen is quite spacious, about 25m2, and well equipped with plenty of counterspace lining three of the four walls.

Across the downstairs central hallway is the huge living room, about 50m2, which has two sofas, two easy chairs, more bench-type seating near the TV (DVD, CD/radio/cassette player), and one of those round card tables. The TV has cable which allows you to watch movies and shows in orginal version - meaing in most cases English! Perhaps the nicest feature of this living room are the three large double-glazed windows affording nice views out onto the garden and letting in lots of sunlight. The large downstairs bedroom (1) is at the end of the downstairs hallway, up three steps (so not good for wheelchairs), and this bedroom has a double bed and a single bed, and a private bathroom, with a nice wide walk-in, slate-floored shower. The water pressure is excellent.

Upstairs there is a large central living room leading to the five other bedrooms, two of which are off on a separate wing, so all the rooms are somewhat far apart and more private than, say, rooms lined up in a linear hallway. Let´s describe the layout of bedrooms and bathrooms: 2) with a lovely private terrace under crooked old wooden beams overlooking the pool, there is a large en suite room with double bed and private bathroom with bathtub. On one side of the upstairs salon, there are two rooms on either side of a bathroom, this a full bathroom with bathtub. 3) One bedroom has three single beds, and 4) the other bedroom has a double bed. Across the hall there is a little wing with two bedrooms, 5) one room with double bed and a small bathroom with shower, and another 6) bedroom with two single beds. The small bathroom for room 5 has two doors, one direct to the bedroom and one to the salon, for easy access for room 6. All windows are screened to keep out insects.

Oh, and lastly, one of the things I really like about the Mas is the fact that there are so many trees around the house, near the house and shading the house from the hot sun. I didn't notice this really until we stayed here during a hot week in early July 2012. Many of the walls and windows are shaded by trees outside. In fact, we were able to pick ripe lemons from the screened windows of the upstairs central salon and from the terrace just above the outdoor BBQ dining area.

Latest guest comments:
A delightful house set within walking distance of a tiny village. We walked and rode a mountain bike on its hundreds of acres of wooded forest. We loved the rooms, especially the en suite room with a balcony, where I held private consultations with my students distracted only by the view and the curious birds. Convenient to Girona, an airport, and a market in a nearby town, it's ideal for an isolated yet not remote vacation or retreat.
