FABULOUS PLACE TO STAY WITH SMALL OR LARGE FAMILY!

  •  Rated  ★★★★★5 out of 5

 

We absolutely LOVED everything about Mas Saline. Roger met us the day we arrived and gave us a very detailed and thorough tour of their lovely home. We had 9 people in our family there and the house was perfect for us. You feel as though you are hidden away in a very secret spot, but you are only 5 minutes from town.
The area is perfect for exploring Costa Brava and Roger and Silvia have a binder of information at their home with directions, reviews and suggestions for the area. We took it with us every time we left to explore.
We give our highest recommendation for Mas Saline and think it is one of those places that you have to experience.
Roger and Silvia came to say goodbye the day before we left and they could not be more charming. We wish we could have stayed longer to get to know them better, but were so glad we had the opportunity to meet them and stay in their gorgeous home. THANK YOU!!

A COUNTRY-SIDE OASIS, WITHIN REACH OF BEACHES!

  •  Rated  ★★★★★5 out of 5

 

First thing that comes to mind is the warm hospitality and cooperativeness of the house owner. Roger and his family are very friendly people, a warm thanks goes out to them for making us have a splendid time at their lovely country house.

The craftly restored house is beautifully located in between farm fields with apples and corn. Harvesting was on when we rented the house in the month of September, the kids just loved it! Our eldest daughter of three enjoyed the horses that live on the property, and she actually loved sitting on Bamba the pony several times. Feeding apples to the horses was a fun ritual, as well as our daily treat of four fresh chicken eggs from the child friendly chicken on the property. The kids also made friends with Mitsie the cat that lives there and showed up off and on. All on all, a heaven for kids, with the large open garden and classic formed swimming pool well-constructed for kids.

The house interior is also child proof, and consisted of a well equipped kitchen with great large oven, a spacious eating table, and kids’ corner. There was a play room which we hardly used because of the great outdoors and weather we enjoyed the entire month. The bedrooms were comfortable as were the bathrooms, all very decent and in proper shape. The office was also well equipped for some works while having fun. The TV-room offers a decent collection of children’s movies which we watched once or twice after a long day of sun and fun.

A large grocery chain is within 5 minutes’ drive as is the town of Torroella de Montgri with all possible shops, amongst which a fabulours butcher and bakery as well as a classy coffee bar with decent prices. The closest beach is on a 10-15 minute drive which is indeed very close-by allowing for the flexibility to go to the beach in mornings or afternoons, while being able to enjoy lunch at home under the tree in the spacious garden. The area is top-notch, not for nothing is it called Trainglo d’Or for its slopped hills and beautiful medieval villages which offer great site seeing and mouthwatering restaurants. All in all, plenty of enjoyable things in and around the house, and the region.

We look back to the house with a great smile and advise anyone interested in renting a country house in the region, to pick this one as you choice. We fell in love with the area and the house, definitely it’s well worth the money spent.

Thanks once again to Roger, Silvia, and the kids.

A FIVE STAR HOUSE FROM FIVE STAR OWNERS
  • Rated  ★★★★★5 out of 5

 

My family spent a week at Mas Saline this past July of 2012. I am from Barcelona myself, married to an American from New Jersey. We currently live in the US and this past summer I wanted to have my American family to experience the "Costa Brava", our food, our landscapes, the history and our people. We looked over and over for the perfect place and, we finally we came across with Mas Saline. What to say about Mas Saline, Roger and Silvia (the owners)... 

I, personally, have since been dreaming of those breezy afternoons sitting outside, the smell of the lavender they have planted in the magnificent outdoor space, the delicious good taste in decorating the typical Catalan farm house from the XVIII century, the dinners we had "al fresco" with the local wines, the plumb tree in front of the house with the sweetest plumbs... It was also the best experience for our two years old daughter and her cousin, who were able to run outside with the horses they have in the property and the perfect pool for kids and adults, as well as the garden with fresh produce. The house has all the amenities for kids and, you can tell the owners have kids of their own. 
Mas Saline is close to the beaches and medieval towns and, at the same time, you have all the privacy you wish for. 
We will definitely repeat the experience whenever we have the chance. Roger and his wife, Silvia, will help you with anything you may need and are very responsive. 
As a final note, I wanted to mention my father in law's last night at the house when he made a toast, he got all emotional and said that this had been one of the best, if not the best vacation of his life. Mission accomplished... 
Thank you Mas Saline! Thank you Roger and Silvia!

WONDERFUL IN EVERY WAY

  • Rated   ★★★★★5 out of 5

 

We adored our stay at Mas Saline, the superbly converted farmhouse offered ample and spacious accommodation for our family stay, in a superb setting amongst apple orchards and olive groves.
Its location was perfect for exploring this beautiful area of Catalonia. We really enjoyed exploring the immediate countryside, there are several beautifully preserved medieval villages within easy cycling distance. The last day we did part of the 'Cami de Ronda', an ancient smugglers path along the stunning coastal scenery of the Costa Brava. The section we did, between the beach at Castell and Calella de Palafrugell is beautiful, with stunning virgin coves along the way.
The house and area are just stunning!, and going in late may was probably perfect - not too hot, not so crowded.
We are hoping to come back as we didn't have enough time to see it all!. Thank you for all your help in making it a magical week for us all, we enjoyed our stay immensely!

AMAZING FIND IN A BEAUTIFUL REGION

  •  Rated ★★★★★5 out of 5

 

My family spent a week at Mas Saline to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We had three generations staying at the house and it could not have been more perfect. The house is wonderful--lots of room, fantastic grounds, and wonderful amenities. We were simply in heaven. 
The house is situated in a fantastic region to explore--lots of wonderful medieval towns to explore, the beach is a 10 minute drive. You can hike, bike, or simply relax. The village of Torroella di Montgri was very charming and we had our favorite meat shop and pastry shop. Roger and Silvia are incredibly sweet and took fantastic care of us. They can recommend things to do, places to eat, and ways to have fun. We happened to be there during the Festival of Sant Joan which was very special. We saw the most amazing fireworks.
We did not want to leave the house. We had three teenagers who were happy with the WiFi and the pool, and being able to explore the grounds. We had lots of room for the eight of us, although we always seemed to gather in the large kitchen! Sitting outside and listening to the birds and enjoying the constant breeze was incredibly relaxing. 
If you want a wonderful retreat in a beautiful area--this is the place to stay. The house is wonderful--right out of a movie! Roger and Silvia will take wonderful care of you and you will have an amazing time!

PARADISE FOR FAMILIES
  • Rated  ★★★★★5 out of 5

 

We (5 adults/6 kids) have stayed for a week at this wonderful family retreat, which boast tasteful interior, ample space inside and outside of the house, TV, Internet, swimming pool and horses. The house has been restored with charming details by owners Sylvia and Roger, who were also extremely helpful when preparing our trip, checking in, providing us with useful local information and being also very responsive during our stay. Roger helped us to organize horse back riding lessons for the kids in the evenings on the property and the surrounding fields, an unfogettable experience for all of us. 
The vicinity of golf courses, beaches, supermarkets and local shops (all about 10 minutes by car) made our stay convenient and memorable. While there are plenty of attractive dining options around we found ourselves staying home every night of the week enjoying the wonderful setting and local food. 
I would (and have already) recommend this property to my friends.

IDYLLIC MAS SALINE
  •  Rated  ★★★★★5 out of 5

 

Mas Saline has got the 'wow' factor in abundance! Everything from the idyllic drive through the apple orchard to the rustic charm of the farmhouse conjures up the perfect holiday setting. The grounds and facilities are second to none...so good in fact that had it not been for the beautiful beaches and charming villages on its doorstep waiting to be explored we would have hardly left! It was our home for a wonderful week enjoying family time, good food and Catalan sun!" Mr & Mrs Hughes
