Beautiful, clean and well appointed kitchen, great pool!
So, first of all, this is a beautiful place, that has recently been renovated, and it shows. The ground and rooms are all spacious and the rooms are all en-suite.
The bar area and large 'games room' were a little redundant though as no food or drink was allowed to be consumed in either of those areas, which we all found bizarre, especially the bar room, no food or drink allowed .... in a bar?
The check-in process took seemingly forever, at least 1.5 hrs? which after a long and tiring journey with children is not really what we were looking for.
The pool is fantastic, the kitchen was large, and well stocked with equipment, and all the rooms except for the one right next to the kitchen keep nice and cool due to being almost underground.
We never received our welcome drink as advertised and there were altogether too many rules imposed by the owners, who just so happened to be staying in the apartment which is on top of the main building and just happened to pop in unannounced during the week a few times, which was not pleasant. This is a separate point, the image on the website shows a whole farm houser, which looks lovely and private, but in reality, it is only the downstairs which you have access to, there is a separate, owners apartment upstairs and off to the side, which meant we were lef5t feeling a little overlooked and was not at all what we thought we were going to get.
During the week there were a number of other unannounced and unexpected guests who just happened to be there walking around the property during our stay, which was unsettling as we had children with us. There were a couple of gardeners, a pool cleaning guy among others.
There is a driveway, that you are not allowed to use (i.e. drive your car on), for fear of damaging the surface???
Altogether, I would have given the property 5 stars, but have to take a few away for the lack of privacy and the sheer number of rules that we had to abide by which made us feel less relaxed and more on edge.
Oh and don't fall for the 'Chef at home' experience, we were charged 35 Euros per head for raw chicken!!! which no starters or desserts included.
Final advice, lovely place, but if you're looking for total privacy and your own holiday home for the week, look somewhere else
Thank you for your comment and lovely compliments, we are really glad that overall you liked the property and enjoyed your stay.
l would like to point out few things so it doesn’t create any future confusions or misunderstandings.
Rules and checkin - a big and fully equipped property as Mas Can Sala requires a good and detailed briefing, and it is indeed our obligation to make sure guests know exactly how everything works. Sometimes, also depending on a size of the group and other circumstances, it can take a bit longer of course.
Welcome drink - you are right, it was forgotten at the first instance, but later on we did bring a very nice bottle of regional wine which we showed to one of the ladies from your company, and left it in the fridge for you. I understand that sometimes among large group of people this kind of details can be easily missed.
Maintenance - for a property as Mas Can Sala, we are sure you understand we can’t just stop necessary works for a week: gardener, pool guy, cleaner need to continue their work for maintaining optimum conditions of the property at all time, for you and for guests after you. Also, l would like to remind that we duly noticed and asked permission for a visit of technician which happened to be available to come on a week you were there.
Owner’s apartment - in our listing, we do explain and advise that at the back of the guest area there’s a private owner's part. Since there’s a separate entrance, separate pool, separate house - it does provide a full privacy both to you as a guest and to owners, if and when they happen to be there, since they leave abroad. Owner did appear twice, once to welcome and second time to bring an extra mobile AC as required, to make you more comfortable.
Chef at home buffet bbq - just as described in service offering sent to you previously, it is a buffet service including salads, vegetables and different kinds of meat and no dessert. It is served that way but it can also be served differently, when asked previously. Also, for 4 of the kids, meal were adapted, prepared and provided for free! It’s true that chicken was not well done / cooked but we only learnt about it a day after the service when we were not able to do anything anymore to correct it, but only to duly discount one menu and apologise, just as we did. Accidents can happen sometimes, and if we are not aware of it at the same moment - it cannot be fixed.
I’m glad that all the rest of the meal including 3 different types of salads, roasted vegetables, stuffed aubergines, 3 different kinds of burgers and brochettes, sausages and beef filets were well enjoyed 😊�
Best regards, Bojana
Un finde genial!
La casa es preciosa y la piscina estupenda! Todo muy limpio y muy cuidado. Bojana muy amable y cercana. Hemos pasado un finde genial, no hemos necesitado ni salir de la casa, en la zona de la piscina se estaba muy bien.
Solo un inconveniente: la hora de salida. Tener que dejar la casa a las 10 de la mañana supone madrugar, recoger todo con prisas y perder un día festivo.
Muchas gracias Cristina por su comentario. Decir que también es posible organizar una estancia de dia con un suplemento, bajo petición y siempre que esto nos lo permita la organización de reservas posteriores. Saludos cordiales, Bojana
Un fantástico fin de semana en l’Empordà
Espectacular masía tradicional reformada como alojamiento rural ubicada en un enclave fantástico a solo 15 minutos de la costa.
Hemos tenido la oportunidad de estrenar la casa después de una reforma y la experiencia no puede haber sido mejor. Lástima que el tiempo no ha acompañado demasiado y no hemos podido disfrutar de la fantástica piscina que tiene la casa...
El trato con la propiedad, a través de Bojana, ha sido en todo momento muy correcto y atentos a nuestras necesidades. Muchas gracias!
Repetiríamos sin dudarlo!
Muchíssimas gracias Victor!
Ha sido un gusto conoceros y hospedar vuestro grupo en nuestra casa. Esperamos, más adelante, poder volver a recibrles aqui, para que puedan disfrutar de la piscina también.
Sois y más que bienvenidos!
