Selection of activities

Catalonia is a region in Spain, which represents a wide selection of unique activities. Please visit our selection of activities and get the best out of your stay!

Responsible Tourism

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. 

Grand holiday homes

We have a extensive selection of holiday homes in Catalonia, Spain for grand groups, which create a great opportunity for a unforgettable holiday in company with more generations or friends.

Casa Emprios is a perfect choice if you want to combine both Catalan rural idyll and nearby villages. This wonderful holiday home is situated in very peaceful and beautiful surroundings with the Pyrenees in the background - but still within walking distance to a nearby and typical Catalan village. There is room for 10 people in the holiday house, and therefore it fits perfectly for two families who are on a holiday together.

This attractive holiday home is situated in a very hilly landscape - surrounded by hills with trees. Here there are almost no houses in sight, which gives a special and particularly relaxing atmosphere - there are no noisy neighbors, and you can enjoy your holiday to the full. Moreover, the views from the property are very beautiful and breathtaking, and it can be enjoyed from nearly anywhere on the site.

There has been put a lot of effort in the decoration of the house, and a characteristic part of the house are the many windows that are located around in the home, and it gives much light and good space. In the basement there is a very large family room, which includes a dining table, several sofa corners, a fireplace and other nice things. This will probably be the holiday’s natural meeting point. There is also a very modern and beautiful kitchen with oven, dishwasher, kitchen, microwave and other things. Finally, there is also a double room with en suite bathroom.

On the first floor there are 4 double rooms. The beds are made of wood and have a very classic design and are lovely soft. The rooms all have a sloping ceiling of wood, which gives a very spacious feeling. Here there are 2 bathrooms for sharing. There is also a bathtub.

The surrounding garden is very well kept and appears green and healthy. There are planted some trees around the house. One thing that will surely be a hit is the 32 m2 large swimming pool. Here you can really relax in the heat: Enjoy the warm sun at full blast next to the pool, and when it gets too hot, you can take a swim in the cooling water. In the garden there is a covered terrace with a dining table and a barbecue. Here it is perfect to cook and enjoy your homemade meals.

The owners farm is about 100 meters from the house, so they are always available to help and they are English-speaking. It is also possible for the children to visit the animals. If the wind direction is towards the house, the smell of farm might occur.

Also there is only 3 km to the nearest village, where you find a butcher/grocery store, bakery and restaurant.

Description of the region :

Central Catalonia is where our "the fairytale" of our company began. Being late with booking a house, the houses in our focus area close to beach and Barcelona, were already booked. We ended up in Central Catalonia, and in the following summers we did not even bother to search in other regions, Central Catalonia was the perfect base for vacation in Catalonia!

Central Catalonia is situated where the Llobregat-river winds it is way from the Pyrenees down towards Barcelona. It is not heavily populated, and in the small town and villages you blend in with local life. The region is ideal for families or groups, who want a diversified vacation.

Most of all however, the region has, we found out, vacation houses of very high standard, carefully nursed by the owners, as they have been in the family for centuries, previously used for labour, in the days where agriculture needed more man-power, with all facilities you could think of, inside as well as outside. So many of the days, the car stayed in the carport and the time went with playing, swimming, reading and some nice meals from the barbecue accompanied with a glass of wine.    

The landscape at the entrance to the Pyrenees is dominated by small rivers, hills, fields and forest. From almost any point, you have view to the steep Pyrenees that raise in the distance, probably some of the most beautiful mountains of the world. The area provides excellent conditions for a variety of sports- and outdoor activities, such as hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, angling, canoeing, river crafting or perhaps a visit to the owners farm.

Central Catalonia is situated in 400-800 metres altitude and has more than 300 sunny days on a year. If you visit the region in the spring or the autumn, most days will be pleasant, with temperatures from 18-25 degrees in the day time. In the summer it is warmer. The altitude makes the air dry, and the heath is very pleasant. It is good idea, however, to have the lunch-break in the shadow. The region's houses are constructed of limestone and with tiled floors to secure a pleasant indoor temperature. More

Local life

Central Catalonia is an inland area and has a rich cultural and natural heritage, including market-towns and cities with a great historical tradition. It has many monuments (Vic, Manresa, Cardona, Igualada, Terrassa, Sabadell, granollers etc.). The appealing foothill country of the Pre-Pyrenees surprises and you won't be disappointed. In the cosy rural villages, which all have its own weekly market, with fresh vegetables, homemade sausages, bread, cheese, the best olives and splendid oils.  

Towns and villages

Most of the towns are situated on the shore of the Llobregat river. Tucked into the edge of the Pyrenees, you find the main town Berga. The centre is easily walkable and is lined with pretty old houses, historic monuments and lively squares, especially along the busy Carrer Major.



From Berga towards Barcelona, the small lively towns are situated by the shores of Llobregat like pearls on a string. Gironella, Puig Reig and Navás are all towns with a lot of shops with fresh vegetables, meat, bread and fish, along with banks, bars and restaurants, great for doing your shopping while staying in one of the houses. Be aware of the siesta!    

 

 
Restaurants

As there is a limited number of tourists in central Catalonia, you will get a true Catalan experience in the restaurants in the area. Most restaurants are average levelled with solid Catalan food. We will be happy to help with advice.

If you want to try a gourmet dinner in beautiful surroundings in the countryside, Els Casals, just awarded a Michelin star, is really worth a visit. You can visit the restaurant on you own, or join our "evening in Els Casals", an evening where you visit the farm and then enjoy a gourmet dinner, designed especially to allow families with children to enjoy a gourmet meal as well.

Activities

Those who are looking for an active vacation won't be disappointed. There are brilliant activities for all age groups. Explore natural surroundings and cultural sites on many different cycling adventures or break your routine by going hiking, mountain biking, kayaking or river rafting on one of the many great places in the Pre-Pyrenees. If you (or your kids) prefer horseback riding there will be a huge variety of possibilities: horse riding routes, riding classes, pony trekking etc.

Please do consult our activity catalogue to see the many activities in the region.

Canoeing

Just before Berga, the Llobregat river is dammed in order to be able to control the water, which from time to time can be a scarce resource in Catalonia and secondly produce electricity. This has created a big lake in front of the village of Cercs. Her you can rent canoes and either just paddle around in child-friendly conditions or take a longer trip upstream and back again.

Golf

The region has several golf courses and especially the ones situated in the Pyrenees should be amazing, with the mountainous surroundings.
