We stayed at Casa de la Fuente between 12 - 26 June 2017. The house is lovely with plenty of room for 10 people (although 2 will have to be in bunks). You have 3 choices of where to eat - the roof terrace with its barbecue, the patio under the wisteria or the kitchen/living room with its amazing vaulted ceiling and beautiful wooden table. Inside, the house is full of interesting things, pictures, light fittings and furniture. Who would expect iron scorpions? Everyone's favourite was the owl that regarded the kitchen in astonished indignation. There is a pretty garden which is full of birdsong. The more energetic among us made several walks to the monastery and the beach. We made trips to Gerona; we snorkelled and saw an octopus and a cuttle fish. We really recommend it.
We have recently returned from Casa de la Fuente, our second visit. Our first was 15 years ago with family and this time we went as a couple. It could not have been better. The garden is a wonderful place to sit and relax and there are many walks around the village if you wish to exert yourself. The local restaurant was open during our stay, and having eaten there a couple of times, would thoroughly recommend the food and hospitality there.. We spent an entire week relaxing and doing nothing apart from going to Port de la Selva for essentials - a very unusual holiday for us - and it was wonderful to take time out. The garden is amazing - it seems so much larger than it is as the owners would have spent time and love creating it. The house suits us to a T. This is an old house with nooks and crannies, which make it an ideal holiday home. We did not eat in the dining room downstairs but it is a wonderful place to use to cook. The village is isolated and a car is essential but it is close to Port de la Selva with supermarkets, restaurants and beach. The train service is excellent to Figueras, Girona and Barcelona and to France from Llansa. All in all we could not have asked for anything more and are trying to work out when we are able to return next year.
Sue was a wonderful and organised host, the house was great for the group of 8 that I travelled with. The beaches nearby were wonderful and being able to zip up the hill to a cooler location with a beautiful shaded garden was much appreciated. I would return in a heartbeat.
