Outside, there is a covered porch with a barbecue which is ideal for eating outside all year round, swings for children and a nice heated private swimming-pool with an hydromassage bench. It is appropriate to spend some days with the friends, family reunions, partying, birthdays… or just to spend some calm and break days. The perfect situation of the house allows you to do several excursions around Pla de l’Estany by bike or on foot, through the lake surroundings declared of natural interest. You can also visit Girona province since the house lays in the center of it. Also, there are horses 2 km. far. Car is not necessary because 300 meters from the house there is public transport (bus). Besides, private transfers from/to Airport are available. SOME ACTIVITIES: WELLNESS TREATMENTS: Can Xargay brings you closer to the senses world through a wide range of relaxing therapies where time will stop and your senses lead you to an exotic world of sensations. All services are offered by a licensed physiotherapist in Can Xargay wellness room. All products used are natural. CYCLING HOLIDAYS: Life looks different when you're sitting on a bicycle: everything takes on the right speed and you become part of a landscape in motion. In Can Xargay there are lots of kilometres of routes and roads ideal for cycling with the family or with friends, in complete safety, so that you can take in every stretch of the region as if yo were re-creating it each time you pedal. You set the speed when you're on your bike and the infinity of proposals available will adapt to it perfectly. Unique spots close to the sea or in the mountains, to find the complicity that comes to those who ride bikes. After the cycling, enjoy a spa treatment in Can Xargay. Besides, the house has got a specific enclosed patio to lock your bikes up. HIKING: There are many routes from Can Xargay. They have trail markers and are organised in a network of loop trails, and hikers can adapt the route or the stages according to their requirements or level of preparation. GOLF: The house is located 9km from Girona Golf. It's an 18-hole, par 72 golf course designed by the English architect F.W. Hawtree, seeded entirely with Penncross, the best quality grass for playing golf. A course that is entirely adapted to its natural surroundings, featuring an advanced sprinkling system using regenerated water from Girona's purification plant, and meeting the most up-to-date environmental standards. The top nine holes are extremely competitive – their design requires players to use all the clubs in their bags. The bottom nine are simply spectacular, with all the tees set atop walls built with Girona stone, offering impressive panoramic views of the fairways. It is a true pleasure to follow the flight of the ball towards its destination, and encourages many players to take out their woods. Frommer's Magazine from US and National Geographic have published in October 2011 the Best Destinations of the World for 2012 which are Girona and the Costa Brava.
