A group of us (16) cyclist and wives, stayed with Ratchel and her family, we had a great time, nothing was to much trouble for the family, from the delicious breakfasts, relaxing massages, help and advice, with walks, bike hire, taxis etc, etc.
This is perfect for a large group, warm and cosy inside with a fab area out doors, it ticked all the boxes for all of us and we would love to return.
Thank you Can Xargay, for making our holiday very special.
Wonderful house and location
The owners of this property were especially attentive to our needs and requests. [...] The house is well appointed and plenty of room for our group of 12. The games room was a great hit as was the lovely swimming pool. Local knowledge and advice on places to visits, where to get coffee and cake and help organising a birthday cake to be made was so helpful. It is a short walk to local amenities and the beautiful lake and public transport is good, which means a car is not absolutely necessary. We would highly recommend this property.
