“This is truly a highly recommendable place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

This is truly a highly recommendable place to stay!

We spent 5 days at CAN 28 and after leaving the place we sincerely regret that we had not chosen to spend our entire vacation at this beautiful place. As a family with two boys (8 and 13 years), CAN28 was the perfect place to spend our holiday. We prefer staying places without a lot of tourists, and this year decided to go for some local nice places with a swimming pool and being close to Costa Brava for the first 5 days and then go to the mountains.

Interior wise, the whole place very tastefully and completely new renovated with a very nice combination of new style combined with the old style. Located in a small local village makes the place even more charming.

The place is a family run business and you feel the warmth and much welcome right from the minute you step through the door.

We are so thankful for both Montses as Ed's super nice way to welcome us all. And our kids were playing and had so much fun with their lovely children Mila and Rem. Our boys still talk about how nice this place was and how much they want to return again next year.

Breakfast: included featuring local commodities such as olive oil for bread, home grown tomatoes, watermelon etc.

The Swimming pool is extremely tasty and just beside to the garden where there is opportunity to sit and enjoy dinner in the evening sun.

If you like a little more secluded places without mass tourism and want to experience Catalonia and local areas but at the same time being close to Costa Bravas nice beaches within just 15 mins drive then this is definitely worth a visit.

The area also provide spot rich opportunities for other activities such as hikes in the hills, and also within reach of cultural places in towns like Figueres and Rosses.

There is no doubt that we would like to return to this beautiful place and the family. The prices of the rooms are very reasonable compared to what you get.

The place also leave more than the impression on their very nice and updated website when you take a look before arriving. For the website cannot describe the kindness and generosity encountered at CAN 28 from the whole family including Montses, Eds, the kids but also Montses sister and her mother.

We will be back ☺

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice. Bringing kids we enjoyed very much having the rooms with direct access to t...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

We loved Can 28 so much our son actually cried when we left. This is truly a family-run farm with all of the warmth and care that come along with that. The b&b portion of the house has been lovingly renovated with lots of attention to detail: super soft towels, individual heat control, and nice clean modern, but appropriately rustic, design elements.

You don't feel as though you're in a traditional farmhouse per se, in that the b&b is actually located on a small road in a tiny village, but there are stables with sheep just across the street and the apple orchards are just down the road. They also have a stunning hillside walk/trek with olive tree groves and gorgeous views of Montgri and the Montgri castle. It's perfect for long walks and mountain biking (Eds and Montse were generous enough to lend my husband one of their bikes so that he was able to go for a ride).

Everyone in the family is super sweet and very attentive to your needs. Our son got very attached to Mila, their 5-yr old daughter, and Rems, their 3-yr old son. Eds and Montse took us out for a lovely walk, and also took us to a local festival in the closet village. They let our son feed the baby sheep from a bottle and let us sample the wine and olive oil they make themselves. They told us about restaurants in tiny quaint villages that we never would have found on our own, and every recommendation they made was excellent.

The location is also ideal for exploring the whole Costa Brava region, right in the middle of everything.

Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Oh, and we'd love to go back when it's warm enough to use the new pool. Can 28 is the perfect farm stay experience, especially for those traveling with kids.
