“Best place for a family or romantic weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Imagine yourself drinking vino in the heart of Catalunia, not more than 2 hours away from Barcelona, and minutes away from some of the most important places in Dali's life. Imagine sleeping in a room that many years ago was a stable for horses, where your shower is the old well from the house, and still while you take that shower, you can see the water all the way down (the floor is made of very thick glass). Imagine drinking with your amazing hosts Leandro, Helena, Matilda and their dog Pomelo. Imagine home made breakfast in their terrace. Imagine that if you are lucky, maybe Leandro will cook an "ARGENTINIAN ASADO" with CHIMICHURRI (best spice mix ever!)
That is what makes Casa Matilda the best place for an escapade if you want quietness but still be close to Barcelona and other major Catalunia towns.

It's indeed a perfect place. Beautiful house (an ancient building which was perfectly renovated), big and very nice rooms, great breakfast and very friendly hosts. The dog is also a highlight per se :) Try the red wine - it's excellent. We will definitely come back soon when it will be a bit warmer to enjoy the terrace!

This was a real find for me. I needed a place for a couple of nights as I had some things to do in the area. Casa Matilda is just perfect. An ancient house renovated to a high standard and full of charm. My room was spacious and comfortable, with a little patio. The very friendly hosts served a fantastic breakfast. Hard to beat. I will be back just for a relaxing break.

If you are looking for an authentic and charming stay in a quaint yet centrally-located Catalan village, look no further than Casa Matilda! My family and I stayed here for three nights in August 2012, renting out three of the four beautifully-decorated rooms. (See photos of the lovely rooms and the beautiful decks. Photos don’t do it justice!)

The hosts are most welcoming and really made it feel like home for the duration of our stay. They were able to answer lots of questions about the area, arrange rentals bike for us, and recommend restaurants. They went far beyond what we ever expected when we had a rental car breakdown and an emergency that required transportation!

Breakfast is just what you need with freshly made fruit salad and homemade breads, as well as a cheese and meat plate, coffee, tea, juice, etc.

We found Corca itself to be the perfect place to be based for our stay in the region. It is surrounded by miles and miles of bike paths that run through fields and connect other towns. It is also not a far drive to the coast. There are several excellent restaurants within a close distance.

I would absolutely recommend Casa Matilda to anyone and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We have stayed with our baby in Casa Matilda to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The place is very beautiful, old mansion refurbished and tastefully decorated. We have stayed in suite room, very spacious and comfortable. Casa Matilda has several terraces with views to the village, where we even spent some time instead of travelling around as we planned initially. The hosts are great people, who make you feel as their old friend. We will certainly come back!

Room Tip: There are only few rooms, all seemed nice, but just one has the very pretty private terrace

From picking us up at the train station, our stay was amazing in this charming b&b in a 16th (?) century building in the historic village of corca.

Our room was clean comfortable, and the shower was amazing. There are two terraces on the roof where you can sit filled with flowers overlooking the village.

The hosts went out of their way to ensure we had the perfect stay - and the Catalonian breakfast was buenissimo!

Would highly recommend and would stay again.
