Can Sort is a just a few kms from the A-7 and N-II roads heading north-south between Barcelona and the French border. The nearest large village is Bascará, just between Girona and Figueres. Set on a hilltop with fantastic uninterrupted views, there are no buildings immediately around Can Sort, and the views of the Pyrenees to the northwest and out towards the coast to the east, are memorable. While only 12 kms to the Costa Brava beaches, this is a largely agricultural area with historic villages, like lovely Vilaür hamlet, only 2 kms away. The house itself, an old masia built in 1789, is nicely furnished, including some good antiques.
The dining area has 7 or 8 tables of different sizes, and there is a huge separate social room (about 120m2 occupying a separate building) with TV, chimney, games, sofas and card tables - a great place to hang out and read or socialize. The bedrooms are spread around the main house and are quite spacious and well-appointed, all have private bathrooms and have a rustic feel, and most of the rooms have good views. Outside, a number of covered terraces provide shade under bougainvillaea and rose bushes, and the area around the house is nice for leisurely walks through pines and aromatic shrubs.
The owners, Cristina and Jaume, are not country bumpkins and both speak quite good English. He was a lawyer and she was a TV producer in Barcelona when they decided to give up city life and set up this B&B and horse club in this idyllic spot. They have done a very good job and they have a pleasant steady staff to help them. My wife and daughter and I love staying at Can Sort. We often invite invite friends and we ride a bit but what we all really like are the big rooms, big meals, big pool, big social room.... and the relatively small prices.It´s amazing how hungry one gets after 90 minutes on a horse! In short, this place has a lot going for it and I could go on and on about it, but I think the Comments from Past Visitors above say it all.
It is a rare priviledge to spend time at this B&B.
