Living local is a great chance to make a real difference using "Responsible Tourism" which are supporting the local Catalan farmers as it aids maintaining traditional ways of living. Renovating the beautiful country homes, with a high degree of respect, stops the areas of mass tourism to grow larger and preserve the stunning scenery, wildlife and glory in Catalonia's historic buildings and precious heritage.

Holiday home in beautiful surroundings with swimming pool
Can Rajola is a former farmhouse, now restored and converted to allow guests to enjoy the beauty of nature any time of the year. In front of the house, there is a very nice swimming pool with a size of 32 m2.
Just outside the front door to the house, there is a cosy terrace with table and chairs and shaded by the threes and palms in the garden. It is the perfect location for outside dining. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of this farmhouse is the large garden surrounding it, with its different species of trees and shrubs, the results of some of the family members' botanical interest. By way of example, it contains an oak and a palm tree which are more than one hundred years old.
Set in this garden, and surrounded by trees, there is a barbecue and a fenced swimming pool, enjoyed by young and old alike, and also a tennis table. Close to the pool, a large nettle-tree tempts us to snooze under the shade of its leafy branches. On the ground floor is the kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need, including a barbecue. Beyond the kitchen is the living-dining room, whose large windows overlook the garden and swimming pool. Downstairs, there are two double bedrooms with garden views and a fully-equipped bathroom with a washing machine From the living room, a staircase takes us to the first floor, with its three bedrooms and fully-equipped bathroom.
Just under the ground floor, and with its own independent entrance, is a large space with two bedrooms separated by a fully-equipped bathroom. In one is a double bed and in the other two singles. This area is ideal for a couple with two children.There has just been arranged new bedrooms and a sofa corner. This part of the house is very modern and it has a unique style.

Description of the region :
If you wish to absorb the lively local life in one of the smaller villages in the Girona region, go swimming on the stunning beaches of the Costa Brava. Go hiking in the Pyrenees or see some of the most interesting museums in Catalonia. If you want everything in a week and within your reach, we highly recommend the Girona region - one of the most beautiful regions in all of northern Catalonia.
The city of Gerona, near the French border. It is a beautiful city where you get a real feeling for its history just by walking through its ancient streets. Its a walled city which dates back to the Roman period, the old quarter is located within the city walls. The city of Girona has a rich, detailed, and dramatic history. The first inhabitants of the area were the Iberians. Then came the Romans who built a fortification there, which was named Gerunda. After having been occupied by a number of cultures, Girona finally fell under control by the Holy Roman Empire. In the 12 th century, the Jewish community flourished in Girona , and a major Kabbalistic school was built. However, the Catholic kings drove the Jews away from Spain in 1492. Later on, in the 17 th to 18 th century, Girona fell under siege by the French, and it was conquered by Napoleon in 1809. The walls of the city were destroyed in the 19 th century. Today, the city is a rich heritage site full of historic and cultural beauty.
The most striking characteristic about of the province is undoubtedly its great diversity. From a tourist point of view it can offer a magnificent coastal area -the internationally recognised Costa Brava- as well as a fine mountain region, which is ideal for both tourism and the practice of a wide variety of sports. This balance between coastal and inland scenery, along with a mild climate, helps attract tourists to the province throughout the year.
The coastline north of Barcelona, the Costa Brava, is one of the busiest coastlines in northern Spain. White sand beaches, lifeguards on duty, and one restaurant after another makes it a perfect spot for an easy day on the beach. To the north the town of Roses, provides rental of windsurfers, diving equipment etc. However should you prefer something a little quieter, we highly recommend the small village of Cadaques a to the north. This beautiful village build on the rocks around a small bay, is virtually untouched by modern day mass-tourism. And although the are no sandy beaches the water is clearer and perfect for a small snorkelling-trip. Cadaques is also the birth town of Salvador Dali, and was a reuge for painters and jazz-musicians. The small and central square is a beautiful little place for a lunch. The town also has some small very good and cosy seafood restaurants.
Figueres - Dalí
The hometown of one of the worlds most influential surreal artists Salvador Dali- Figueres, is also home of the official Dali museum. This spectacular is a must-see for all visitors in the area. Designed by Dali himself, the museum is a piece of art in itself, on the outside as well as the inside. For extensive info and ticket reservations follow this link http://www.salvador-dali.org/museus/figueres/en_index.html to the official web-side of the museum in English.
