After travelling until after midnight what a delight to arrive at Can Torras! When we awoke the following morning we were greeted by a fantastic view of the Gavarres from our window and a stunning breakfast prepared by our genial host Karen and eaten under the pergola in the warmth of the sun. Both the view and the breakfasts retained their high quality throughout our stay. With extremely helpful advice and information from Karen and David the next five days were spent discovering more delights of Can Torras and the surrounding area - and what delights they were. Can Torras has everything needed for a complete relaxing break away from the hurly burly and for us a real highlight was the evening meal followed by a dip in the hot spa watching the stars come out. Once down the hill the wider area is full of interest. As we discovered this ranges from visits to the unspoilt coastal villages of the Costa Brava through to the historical delights of old town Girona. We are certainly looking forward to returning to Can Torras to discover more!
