Other things to note
If arriving by car, vehicles can be parked securely within the grounds of the residence.
The arrival time is normally between 16pm and 21pm. You'd have to leave the house until 11 am. If there are no other guests arriving/leaving the same day, arrival/leaving time might be varying without paying any extra. Please let us know as soon as possible, at what time you plan to get to the house.
Bring your cat if it is clean! Dogs are only allowed if they are well educated and if you don't leave them alone in the house.
We kindly ask you not to smoke. If you do so in the outside area, be aware that you are in a highly fire risk zone. The trees can catch alight in a matter of seconds and the fire will spread extremely fast! So any accidently burned fire will be going 100% of your own responsibility.
It is strictly forbidden to light an open fire or barbecue in the countryside near the house or right next to the house. You might want to bring an electric barbecue, so that would be an alternative.

My curiosity has led me to northern Spain, more precisely to Barcelona where I live and feel home since more than 11 years now.
In the meantime, I have discovered this wonderful region and seen lots of hidden places including splendid country houses, often called 'masías'. They are away from the typical tourist track and situated in a natural, green and peaceful environement.
This gave me the idea
- to help other travelors like me who look for authentic places and prefer to do so called #slow tourism.
- to advise owners in offering the best quality services for renting and find them some kind and respectful guests from all over the world
- to give a very personally treat, not only explaining details of the house or the region but also giving more information and help to get to know the local culture, fulfilling the idea of #sustainable #tourism.
So here we are, the idea is a project called DESconnect. Marvelous, especially ecofriendly houses, often applying renewable energy. We specially support families to find unique and family friendly holiday residences where your kids can enjoy nature at its best.
Additionally to my native German, I speak English, French, Spanish and Catalan.
So count on me as your local contact in Catalunya.
¡HASTA PRONTO! FINS AVIAT!
