It's pretty hard to put into words how great this place is.

We were a large group of friends, mostly couples but there were a few young kids as well.
It's an exhilarating feeling to be living in a castle that's about a thousand years old (literally) and you think that it might be a bit awkward - particularly with such a large group - but it has been so well restored it works perfectly.
There was oodles of room for everyone and a place for everything; whether you wanted a corner in the mezzanine lounge room for peace and quiet, or to all get together for a loud boozy dinner party in the dungeon dining room downstairs.
The views from the tower were amazing and siestas next to the pool in the hammock were key.
The surrounding area was awesome for day trips too; we spent a few days lying on the beach, got a culture fix at the Dali museum in Figueres and went on a winery tour for the day - all 30 mins away from the castle. We shopped at the local farmers markets...

Our party included 10 adults, two teenagers and three children. We had plenty of room to spread out during the day and the dining room was large enough to accommodate sit-down family dinners.

We had three meals cook by Jools the castle caretaker. They were superb. She was also an invaluable source of information about the area.

The village, which is only a few minutes walking distance, has a good bakery, butcher and greengrocer. There is also a supermarket.

Girona with its larger supermarkets is only a ten-minute drive away.

The location is excellent with the coast, France and Barcelona all within easy driving distance

We had a memorable holiday and we would gladly return.
