Environment

One of the things our guests most like to do is to relax and enjoy the house, the garden and the swimming pool. However, all manner of cultural, sporting and leisure activities are also possible. Be this strolling on paths alongside the fields of crops, through woods or following the lazy meander of the River Fluvià that loops around us, there are walks available for all kinds of legs. These same tracks can be covered by bike (we have mountain bikes) and, for the hardy, running. Additionally, there are many excursions and visits to be made, taking a half or full day, to get to know our district and its surroundings.
