My little Piece of Paradise
Welcome to Can Torras, a lovingly renovated farmhouse with fantastic views across the hills of Gavarres Park in Catalonia, Northern Spain. It is a registered rural retreat for guests and volunteers, set in beautiful gardens and close to the beautiful Costa Brava beaches and Historic city of Girona.
My cosy home is full of ideas for green living and I love to share great food from my organic veggie garden and eggs from my happy chickens. Come and experience the rich culture of Catalonia in my little piece of paradise for a very special holiday.
A special Bed & Breakfast
I offer a warm welcome to Bed and Breakfast guests in my spacious Cottage & Studio Suites, with breakfast served outside in the garden sunshine. I will encourage you to stretch out under the shady pergola, chill out in the plunge pool, relax in the hot spa or stroll in the garden or surrounding woodland.
With a little notice, you can also relish a delicious, home-cooked meal under the stars, as the suns sets over the hills, the end of a busy sight-seeing day. Grown-ups & kids love the space to run around & time getting to know our friendly, furry & feathered friends.
Riverside Holiday Apartments
If you prefer to cater for yourself or want to leave the car behind, choose one of our two fully registered Bright, Riverside Apartments in a great central location in the old city of Girona.
Evenings can be spent relaxing in one of the beautiful old squares with a fantastic choice of food, music & entertainment just a short walk away.
Great Food Experience
At Can Torras we are passionate about growing, preparing and eating great-tasting food. As a special memory of your time in Catalonia, consider a Cookery Class! We will help you prepare a very special meal, whilst learning about the dishes & organic gardening in this culturely rich region of Spain.
Of course I am happy to guide you to the best restaurants in the area as there are so many to choose from. The traditional weekday Catalan lunchtime menu is such excellent value, whilst for special occasions there are many fine dining restaurants, including one of the best in the world, Celler de Can Roca. There is a food festival nearly every weekend in Catalonia - wild asparagus, Costa Brava sea urchins, olive oil, Emporda rice, Garrotxa beans…
Volunteer at Can Torras
Finally, for a very different way to discover Catalonia, we welcome volunteers to stay with us & learn about our way of life.
For two weeks you can help us in our organic gardens & sustainable living projects & we will show you some of the most beautiful parts of the region.
