Beautiful fortressed farm house built in the 14th century with more than one meter thick walls, reminding one of its feudal past. The house was recently restored to include modern comfort and amenities while maintaining its traditional details. Perfect location for a friend-family get-together. The house is located next to the Fluvià river with panoramic views of the snow-capped Pyrenees mountains. Not far from the beach (30'min / 30km). Many interesting places to visit in the area (Figueres, Dali museum, Cap de Creus, Besalú, Girona, Peratallada, etc....). 1h20´ away from Barcelona.

HOUSE DESCRIPTION: One of our guests families reviews' tittle was: 'Your house is heaven in earth' :) . GROUND FLOOR From the foyer, you will find the family room with 2 couches, a fireplace and television. This room is a great place to rest and read a good book. Next to the family room is the dining area also containing an ample sitting area (is like a second family room) with large windows allowing one to get a glimpse of the beautiful countryside. This is where the second TV is placed. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining area and is fully equipped with a coffee maker, toaster, electric water warmer, microwave, oven, and dishwasher. On the same floor next to the dining area is another large room with a full bathroom and a medieval well. The second fridge is placed there, to give hosts plenty of space to keep cool drinks and food. The ground floor has several exit ways to enjoy the surrounding outdoors. In this floor we also find the first bedroom with 2 single beds, the only one without bathroom ensuite. FIRST FLOOR On the first floor, you will find a relaxing sitting area that connects the 5 bedrooms. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom (1 with a bathtub). All of the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable while tastefully decorated, and each with its own personal style. A staircase leads to the laundry room, where a terrace with beautiful views can also be accessed. We provide our guests with babies, 2 free cradles and 2 high chairs, to make their stay more confortable. Bed linen and pool towels are provided. POOL AND PORCHE AREA Next to the 10x15m pool, a 45m2 porche has been recently restored, with a 7m sofa (relaxing views) and a 3m long table next to a nice barbecue. A place our guests find difficult to leave :) perfect for nice summer vacations. THE VILLA'S SURROUNDINGS The house has a 1.500 m2 garden area with grass, trees and a terrace. The house is surrounded by farm fields and wooded areas belonging to the Villa's own property. The surrounding fields and wooded areas belong to the 40 hectare property along with 2,5 km. of private paths to enjoy nature walks, cycling and hiking. The Fluvia River is easily accessible from the house where one can choose amongst a variety of water sports such as swimming, fishing and kayaking.

Stunning Villa
Such a wonderful house. Very charming, impeccably clean, super-secluded and quiet with beautiful grounds An exceptional host who dealt with our (many) queries and provided great advice as to local restaurants and days out. Very highly recommended.

Great, big family villa
Can Borras is a very charming old house that has been beautifully and tastefully renovated. The house is VERY spacious, both the rooms and common areas, and could easily accommodate our extended family, consisting of 4 families, 8 adults, 3 grown children and 3 babies. We could easily have added 2-3 more children/teens. The house sits in a quite remote setting and offers great privacy. In fact, we did not meet anyone in the area with the exception of the very friendly gardener/care taker. The small village of Canelles is really like a ghost town, so don't expect a vibrant town life. The house and its surrounding areas can be described as being quite rustic and this is can be seen as a part of its charm. The house offers three different areas/tables where the whole family can sit down for a meal, an outdoor permanent charcoal grill, a great swimming pool and sunbathing area, swings and sand box for kids. We made use of the whole lot! The rooftop of the house doubled as huge balconies and this we used for star gazing during the evenings. Although we didn't meet our host Laura in person, she was most helpful both in advance of our arrival and during our stay, and even especially after we left!. A short welcome video was a nice personal touch.

Gorgeous 14th century house
Our stay at Can Borras was wonderful. The house was gorgeous with great amenities for our extended family - beautiful pool, historic but well renovated rooms and views across front lawn to Pyrenees. The location was well situated between lots of great day trips- Scenic Besalu and fascinating Dali museum nearby and also great day trip options to Cadaques, Begur, Colliuere and others. (Would also recommend getting some chef cooked meals- Lee Pennington as well as Moroccan food through villa)

Heaven on earth
This was our second stay at Can Borras, just as wonderful as the first. Beautifully restored, huge, very old house standing alone in the middle of a forest with magnificent views to the distant Andes. The only sound was the crickets in the trees. Lovely big clean swimming pool and huge grassy garden which kept all our grandchildren amused all day. We were an extended family group of 12 but there was so much space for us all. Large dining tables, inside and out - we ate every meal outside in the glorious peaceful setting. All mod cons. in the ensuites and kitchen. V well equipped. Shops and supermarkets a bit of a drive away but worth it to return to our piece of paradise. Lovely owners who did everything to make our stay perfect. If you want somewhere very special with total tranquillity - Can Borras is the place. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
