All of our rental houses and apartments are in the traditional style of the region, most of them in smaller villages or rural settings throughout Catalonia, Spain. Our homes have been gently and respectfully restored according to the traditions of local architecture, and now meets the demand of modern comfort our guests desire. Most of our holiday homes have a washing machine, dishwasher and large comfortable beds. Many have their own private swimming pool. Alternately there will be access to a shared pool, or the municipal pool.
During the past few years we have visited more than 500 vacations homes and we have chosen to represent less than a third of them. It is only too easy to take 100 fantastic photographs promoting mediocre homes, but this is not the best way to ensure that our guests have a satisfying stay. We only choose the very best holiday homes for our customers, this way we try to ensure the best possible holiday for our guests.

We will furthermore be able to aid you with any specific request you might have. Perhaps you want to celebrate an occasion while vacationing, and will need extra assistance with the cooking or maybe a larger room for the party. Some may wish to drive to Spain themselves, while others prefer travelling by train or plane. We have experience with most needs, and we once arranged a wedding with 80 guests, travelling all the way from Ireland. Nothing is impossible!
It is our goal to answer all requests within 24 hours.

Lisbeth Stahn, Owner and daily manager.
I first fell in love with Spain, when i lived there for 6 months during my maternity leave. In my opinion Catalonia, with its majestically natural scenery, is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. I enjoy the feeling of solitude among the peaks of the Pyrenees, and the sentiments of belonging when I return to my village. I always have to visit the cities of Girona and Barcelona during my visits to the region. The Catalan people are a proud and open-hearted people who keep on surprising me every time I come to visit. During the years we have come to know some of our owners quite well, and I have always appreciated the energy and love the owners have put into their houses. Most of our houses have been in the family for generations.

I am responsible for national as well as international marketing in our company. Also I take the pictures of our holiday homes you see on our website. Taking photographs is something I have grown increasingly passionate about.
Bertel Dahlmand Hansen, Owner and contact person to the owners of our holiday homes.
With my background as M.Sc. in Intercultural Management (at the University of Copenhagen) I have all the tools I need for running our little company, along with extensive knowledge of languages that has proven very helpful to us when working with the local holiday-home owners in Catalonia. My knowledge of Catalonia was founded in 2001 when I lived in Barcelona and studied at the Universitat de Barcelona. My love of the region never faded, and after spending a fantastic holiday in Catalonia with a few of our friends, and idea started growing in the hearts and minds of Lisbeth and I. We were three entire families who had a great holiday, and we wanted to make some of the lesser known regions in Catalonia accessable to other holiday-makers as well. People, who just like us, want to spend the holiday in beautiful surroundings in comfortable distance to the busy areas of mass-tourism. In the beginning we only had 15 houses in the municipality of Berguedá, since then we have grown to have houses throughout Catalonia.

Our next ambition (we already started it as a pilot-project in 2007) is offering activities specifically designed for the individual holiday-maker. We do not believe in Coupons and discounts for trips and attractions, instead we hope to provide our guests, adults as well as children, with a great holiday experience.
