    Exciting holidays in the best equipped House

    We were a big group of friends that enjoyed the most not only the house but the swimming-pool, the outskirts, the many activities we experienced and the very interesting gastronomy in the area. It was a very nice friend meeting that it is to be repeated in the very next future.

    We, as a group, had a great stay in Amer. The house is just as shown in the picture. There is plenty of stuff to do around the house, so getting bored is quite difficult. Participia and her family were great hosts. They made the arriving very easy, managed everything super fast and gave us advise on what to do in catalonia.

    As you can see the views are amazing. The hosts are fantastic, very attentive and provide you with SO much information and suggestions, they really go above and beyond. They care about your experience in their home and it really comes across in everything they do. They were very welcoming and were kind enough to do an initial grocery shop so we did not have to! The best hosts i've ever had on Airbnb so far!! The villa is huge we were a group of 14 adults and 4 kids (all below 7) and not once did we feel we were too crowded or in each others space. There are so many toys and items to keep the little ones occupied and ample dining areas! There are plenty of large floats already, which is great. We hired a private chef for a few days and the hosts liaised directly with him to add to the seamless service - amazing. you may want to consider getting a car so you can drive independently into Amer town. Highly recommend Absis restaurant (close to Amer church) - mind blowing wine and food! What a great family holiday, if you have questions reach out to the hosts they are really really helpful and approachable! Thank you Alvar, Montse and Enric! :) From Quynh and family!” Quynh te ha dejado un comentario privado: “Thank you so much for your amazing hospitality. What a great family holiday the children enjoyed it so much and we will highly recommend your villa to our friends and wider family! So much attention and care between yourself and Chef Carlos, we are very very happy with our experience. Thank you!! Quynh”

    Notre séjour à Can Xera fut un enchantement. Nous étions un groupe de 25 étudiants en art ici pour 3 jours afin de profiter de l'air catalan et des activités proposées par la maison. Montse nous a accueillis avec une grande gentillesse : beaucoup d'Airbnb ont peur de recevoir des jeunes, mais elle a décidé de nous faire confiance, et nous en avons été très honorés. La maison est située à l'écart du village d'Amer, et est donc très au calme. Pas très facile d'accès depuis le village pour une petite voiture (5 minutes sur une route de terre), mais cela vaut le détour ! Montse fournissait les draps et les serviettes pour tout le monde (25 personnes), nous a installé la table pour le soir de notre arrivée et préparé un excellent apéritif : une très belle surprise. L'intérieur de la maison est charmant et très agréable, ventilé, avec de nombreux espaces aux ambiances différentes. La literie est très agréable. Les installations extérieures sont également extraordinaires ; magnifique piscine, vélos, trottinettes, jeux de société, transats, jokari, ping-pong, basket... tout est réuni pour un retour en enfance ! Montse et son mari vivent à proximité de la maison, savent rester discrets et nous laisser de la tranquillité, mais ils sont également disponibles pour venir au moindre problème. Ils nous ont conseillé sur les activités à faire aux alentours (barrage, promenade vers l'église et sa source, plage...), toutes extrêmement agréables. Mais la maison se suffit à elle-même tant tout est fait pour rendre la vie pratique et oublier nos soucis. Merci infiniment à Montse pour ce séjour au paradis

    We had a fantastic time at the house in Amer. You could not find better and more helpful hosts. They have left us with wonderful memories of Catalonia and the house itself is fantastic with beautiful views of the valley, a saltwater pool! Yes, you read it right- a saltwater pool! No nasty chlorine to deal with. Two full kitchens – one right at the pool. If you have children there’s no end of things to do – electric cars to drive, skate boards, scooters, ping pong, basketball, pool table, foosball table, there’s lots of pool games, a soccer net, a WIi and I’m sure other items I’ve forgotten. There’s a pool side change room with bathroom and shower and clothes dryer (there are two dryers). All the bed rooms have ensuite bathrooms. I can’t say enough about this place. I’d recommend it to everyone. It’s the best holiday I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a lot of good ones).

    Heerlijk Wij waren hier op vakantie met ouders, zonen van 14 en 12 jaar, dochter van 9 jaar en een baby. En voor iedereen was het duidelijk: dit was op alle vlakken een absolute voltreffer! Het huis was nog beter dan de foto’s en beschrijvingen deden vermoeden. Bijzonder vriendelijke en gastvrije eigenaars die hun uiterste best hadden gedaan om ons verblijf zo aangenaam mogelijk te maken (en dat tijdens ons verblijf ook volhielden): met veel info, maar ook met heel veel (vaak nieuw aangekocht) voor onze baby en de kinderen. Het huis zelf is eerder afgelegen (moet je dus wel van houden), bovenaan een kronkelweg de helling op; maar eens boven waan je je in een paradijs: alles piekfijn in orde, prachtig zwembad, grote zalige terrassen, tonnen speelgoed, praktisch en goed uitgerust poolhouse… Ideaal! En ‘s avonds en ‘s morgens vroeg kan je helemaal genieten: van een hemelse rust en stilte die neerdaalt, enkel begeleid door een eenzaam kwakende kicker. Ook de omgeving is heerlijk: op half uur van Girona, 50 minuten van de kust (Lloret de Mar ea), 1u20 minute van Barcelona, uurtje van Figueres (Dalimuseum) met onderweg prachtige stop in verborgen parel Besalu… Alles bij elkaar een heerlijke plek!

    magnificent holiday we had a very nice time during our stay in Amer. Mr. and Mrs Ramos and children show great hospitality and are very helpful, they want to make you as comfortable as home, and give their best to make your holiday as relaxing as can be. Although they are often nearby (in the upper part of the mansion), they are very discrete and you never have the feeling to be disturbed. They give a lot of information about the region and tips to visit. The house is exactly as described on the website, really everything is available (even including a piano!), all in perfect shape and ready to use. The pool is very well maintained, as is the garden. Administration for rent was very easy, in mutual confidence. Amer is a beautiful region, near to beautiful cities (Girona is a real pleasant surprise!), Barcelona is not far away. The region is perfect for biking (MTB and race bike, when you take the race bike you can’t reach the house for the last 1.3 km, what didn’t disturb me). You are one hour away from the sea if you want to take a boat ride. You can hike as much as you like, starting from the house, or in the volcanic region la garrotxa very nearby. Really a holiday I would recommend!

    Beoordeling Mansion Amer Aanrader; zeer vriendelijke mensen; zeer gastvrij; alles is aanwezig in het huis; tuin en zwembad worden dagelijks schoongemaakt door aanwezig personeel. Meer als voldoende informatie aanwezig om je langer als een week bezig te houden. Gewoon vragen aan de eigenaars. Zij ontvangen je met open armen en geven je zeer graag advies en info over de streek.

    We had a lovely couple of weeks in ‘Can Xera’, which in many ways surpassed our expectations with respect to the description that we had a little trouble to fully understand (we have promised the owners to assist in improving;-)) The kitchen and the room the oldest selected could have been something bigger. (there is an abundance of cookware and tableware, which well could have been a little less;-) The kids were wildly excited about the toys and pool! A discreet and friendly “boy” inspected and fixed the area each morning. There are good opportunities for small trips with a certain challenge directly from the house – both up and down. The whole family went once down to town and back through the woods. But the height difference and distance makes it quite necessary to have a car for shopping and excursions. Within a few hours we reached the high mountains, volcanoes, beaches and major attractions in northern Catalonia, which is worth a recommendation. Vera and Christian

    Dejlig ferie ho Montse og Alvaro i Amer Vi havde et par dejlige uger i ‘Can Xera’, som på mange måder overgik vores forventninger, i forhold til beskrivelsen, som vi havde lidt svært ved helt at forstå (vi har lovet ejerne at hjælpe med en forbedring ;-)) Køkkenet og det værelse de ældste valgte kunne godt have været noget større. (der er en overflod af køkkengrej og service, som så godt kunne have været lidt mindre ;-) Børnene var vildt begejstrede for legetøj og pool! En diskret og venlig “boy” besigtigede og ordnede området hver morgen. Der er gode muligheder for små ture med en vis udfordring direkte fra huset – både op og ned. Hele familien gik én gang ned til byen og tilbage gennem skoven. Men højdeforskel og afstand gør det helt nødvendigt med en bil til indkøb og udflugter. Indenfor et par timer nåede vi høje bjerge, vulkaner, strand og store seværdigheder i det nordlige Catalonien, hvilket er en anbefaling værd. Vera og Christian

    Merveilleux Nous venons de passer une superbe semaine dans cette maison extraordinaire, conçue sur et dans la colline. Tous les repas pris en terrasse avec vue sur les collines, seule la nature à écouter. Rien de mieux pour une bonne détente. Les randonnées à pieds ou en vélo sont à faire. Proche de Girona pour une balade citadine, d’une région volcanique pour ces balades découvertes, d’un très grand barrage et son étang magnifique, d’une voie ferrée détournée en piste cyclable. Tout cela en plus des activités de la maison. Nous la recommandons.
