The neighbourhood

Casa Laurel is situated in the so called laurel valley, within laurel, olive and hazelnut trees right at the edge of a little catalan village called Masboquera. As amenities, Masboquera offers a a public pool with lifeguards, a restaurant/ bar, a sports area equipped with a football field, an equestrian area for horse riding and several playgrounds.
For wine tasting lovers: the Priorat area is closeby! Located in the steep, breathtaking hills of Serra de Montsant, this is the oldest wine-producing region in Catalonia and its wines, intense and full-bodied, are among the most famous in Spain.

Getting around

Masboquera is provided with a good public transport connection by a bus which goes regularily to Hospitalet de L'Infant. From Hospitalet de l'Infant, you can also take a public bus which connects the beaches and shopping areas of the town. To go by taxi is also not expensive in Spain.

Other things to note

If arriving by car, vehicles can be parked securely within the grounds of the residence.



House Rules
No smoking
Check in is anytime after 4PM

Arrival/ Departure:
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.

We had a really great week at Cal Corneta. All the communication with Jutta and later with Frank was prompt and helpful. Frank met us in the village and showed us the way to the finca and then spent ages with us showing us on a map all the best things to do for our week there. We ended up doing nearly all of them! The finca is very well equipped and the dishwasher was a real luxury! There was always plenty of hot water and it was nice to be able to put the heating on in the evenings when it was too cool to sit out. It was lovely to come back and sit in the peaceful garden after a long days sightseeing and it was great to hear nightingales singing so close by. There is a lot to do in the area and Masboquera is a great base, the coast is only 10 mins away and the extensive network of hiking trails is well signposted. There 2 supermarkets 10 mins by car in L'Hospitalet, a cafe in Masboquera and also a very good little restaurant within walking distance of the finca. A lovely place to stay and enjoy the countryside.

Hem estat molt bé a la Casa de masboquera. L'entrada va ser molt senzilla. L'entorn és increible i amb moltes possibilitats per disfrutar de la muntanya i el mar. També hem pogut gaudir molt de la piscina del poble. L'Hospitalet de l'Infant està molt aprop i s'hi pot trobar de tot, incloent peixeteries de molta qualitat!

Très belle maison, bien rénové et confortable avec une salle de bains dans chaque chambre. Il y a un bon chauffage central rendant cette maison aussi confortable dans toutes les saisons. La région est aussi très belle et idéal pour faire du VTT ou la randonné. Le village de Masboquera est charmant et pas loin de la mer. Nous avons été très bien reçus par les propriétaires. En somme, nous pouvons recommander vivement cette maison.

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.
