Had a great stay here for a week. The large stone house is well-built with plenty of room and modern appliances. If you like your privacy you will love this house. It's outside the small village of Peratallada at the end of a dirt road, with no nearby neighbors. Surrounded by trees on one side and fields on the other, it is quite picturesque. You could easily sleep many people here, as there were all kinds of beds and 3.5 bathrooms. The upstairs master bedroom was the best, overlooking the scene with its own private patio. The owners are also great people and were very kind and accommodating. Didn't use the pool because the temp was a bit too low for that but it was kept up well and would have been nice I'm sure in a month or two.

A few things to be aware of. First, be sure to arrange a meeting time and place, and pose other questions with the owner beforehand unless you can speak Spanish/Catalan. They can communicate via email in English but can't do it over the phone or in person. I can speak some Spanish so it was ok but if I couldn't it could have been tough. You need to know where and when to meet them because you won't find this place otherwise. It is outside a tiny village anybody not from Catalonia has heard of, and set off the beaten path as well. The owner told me it literally has no address. Google Maps has a better chance of getting you to Narnia than getting you there. Trust me I tried. So you need to know where to meet the owners beforehand in town so they can take you in. They are very accommodating. If for some reason you can't, go through town, past the cemetary road and before the big greenhouses take a right onto the dirt road. That's all the help I can give.

Next, there is Wi-Fi but it was spotty. Don't plan on telecommuting for a big important work meeting or you may be disappointed.

If you love privacy and rural settings this is the place for you. You can walk to Peratallada, but it's a small medieval city. There are a few little shops and some restaurants, but you're going to have to drive a ways if you want a grocery store, movie theater, or gas station. It's not a bad drive though. Very scenic too. Like 20 minutes to the beach or 30 min to Girona which has everything. But if you're looking to be in the thick of the action, look elsewhere. If you want scenery and quiet, it's perfect.

The owner doesn't want you messing with the temperature settings, so be sure to talk to him beforehand about where you want the thermostat set before he goes. The tile floors are heated which was great for my feet. Ask where the fuse box is just in case, since we blew one and couldn't find it. Also the stove is convection and some of the pans there won't work on it. So if it's not heating up, you're using the wrong pan.

Washer and Dryer worked fine. They provided towels and some toilet paper and soap and such. We had to buy a little extra laundry soap and TP but nothing major. You pack your own trash and recycling out to little places along the way. You'll see the cans as you go into other cities. If you like the Middle Ages you'll love Peratallada. Was heaven on earth for me. Just don't try to drive through it. Camelot wasn't meant for car traffic as I learned the hard way as the road on a dark and rainy night became too narrow for my rental car. Thank goodness for insurance.

Final thing is to remember that in Catalonia the language isn't Spanish it's Catalan. Similar - I could get the jist of most signage and everyone speaks Spanish - but something to keep in mind if you go. Took me by surprise. All in all had a great time and would highly reccomend. If you are a small party it may be a bit big for the price but if you have a larger group or aren't worried about what you pay this is place for you.
