Dear Nuria

We had a great time in Spain & the villas were ideal for the family.
They were well equipped with plenty of space inside and out. The area
was lovely and we could easily drive to La Roca to pick up everyday
food. We also ate at the restaurant just up the road which had
activities for the children, including a pony ride.

Getting into Barcelona was easy and cheap by train. A city that we all
want to return to as there is so much to see.

Friends, who were staying in the city, came for lunch at the villa and
they were very impressed with the whole property.

The children loved the pool and the younger ones especially improved
their swimming and gained in confidence. Ivy, the 4 year old, has now
gone up a swimming group and received a certificate! The beaches were
good and there were lifeguards which with the 9 children was

We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and would recommend it to friends.

We have lots of photographs to remind us of our wonderful holiday.

Cher Charlie,

Merci de votre mail que je m'empresse de répondre! septembre est un mois très chargé pour moi, la rentrée!

Nous avons été enchantés de la propriété et c'est ainsi que nous l'avions communiquer a Jordi et Pepita ainsi que leur fille, que nous avons rencontré avant notre départ.

Les maison sont agréables et la grande maison j'ai adoré par l'espace et bien installé!

La seule remarque et cela à été dit a Jordi et Pepita l'équipement de la cuisine dans l'autre maison était insuffisante pour 9 personés!

Nous avons passés de très bonnes vacances, beaucoup profiter de la piscine qui est très agréable, les enfants était enchantés! Avons fais plusieurs visites à Barcelone, et à la côte ainsi que de très belles promenade entre autres a Tavertet et Montserrat.

Merci de votre gentillesse et service ce qui à permis que tout soit une réussite!

No problem at all. I frequently post reviews on tripadvisor, booking dot com and holiday rentals as we travel a lot and use different types of properties.

The owners were really great. They brought extra linen when requested, replaced light bulbs, maintained the pool and responded within 30 minutes to any problems.

The property is perfect for large groups or two large families. The outside areas are incredible, with plenty of eating spaces, a great barbeque, outdoor furniture and room for children to play. The lockable gate at the bottom of the drive it makes the property very safe.

The pool area is wonderful and boasted stunning views of the mountains.

The main house was very spacious with large bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms. It also boasts a large lounge/dining area with an enormous fire place for the winter. It had a good sized well equipped kitchen and was a good base for large groups to use. The smaller house is more modern with slightly smaller rooms and bathrooms. The living and dining room area are much smaller than the big house, but still good for a family or group of 6-8.

Both houses were spotlessly clean with generous utility supplies.

All in all we had a great stay and everyone enjoyed the peace, tranquility and natural planting of the villa.

Thanks again for all your help with the booking and please pass on a BIG thank you to the owners they were wonderfull.

Cheers for now,

Sam :)

bonjour Monsieur,

Notre famille a passé d'excellentes vacances à la Casa Sant Juan en juillet 2015!

la maison était super confortable, tout était prévu dans les moindres détails et

notre famille de 16 personnes était très à l'aise;

La canicule que nous avons subie quelques jours a été supportée grâce à la

belle piscine ombragée;

A l'écart du bruit, mais proche de Barcelone et de la mer, le site nous a plu

Cordialement La famille GREBERT du Nord de la France

Hi Charlie,

How are you doing? You might remember us, thanks to you we rented the superb house near la Roca del Valles in 2009 and 2010. This was the big house on the big plot we rented with two families (family Jan-Rikke Mulder and family Pieter Mullink). Because we have such good memories we contact you again.

At the moment we are trying to plan our holliday for 2012. Till now we cannot find a suitable house. We hope you might help us. Let me explain you what we are looking for. This year we are travelling with our own family, 2 adults and 3 kids (5, 8 and 10). We would like a house in the area of Barcelona ( 1.5 hour drive) on a private plot, with a private pool. Prefferably with a nice garden driving max 30 minutes from the beach, and away from the main roades. Maybe somewhere near a small not so touristic village. We are able to spend up to EUR 2.000 a week! We would be very thankfull if you are able to help us!

Charlie -

Just wanted to use the opportunity to thank you for arranging a great place for us. Casa San Juan is an amazing place - perfectly situated about 30 minutes outside of Barcelona. Quiet, rustic, beautiful. The large house had all the necessary amenities one would expect in a modern place; the smaller house had its charm as well. The pool is gorgeous. It is a great place to go to either with an extended family, or with friends.

I would certainly recommend it to others, and we would definitely consider coming back to the same place again

It was really a perfect vacation spot - on the one hand, the feeling that you are out in the middle of nowhere with no one around you; on the other hand, very close to Barcelona and the coast.

Many thanks and best of luck!

Dear Charlie

No problem with the feedback. We really enjoyed the holiday and would go back to stay at Casa San Juan.

We were given a very warm welcome by the owners who were at the villa to meet us on our arrival. As we spoke no or very little Spanish they had arranged for their daughter to be there as well and she spoke very good English. The family showed us around the house and grounds and then drove ahead of us to town so we could find the supermarket at Mataro.

They could not have been more accommodating.

The house was lovely. We all really liked the layout of the rooms and it was great to have so many bathrooms. It was well equipped. We made good use of the pool and loved the table tennis table where we had regular family tournaments. The location for us was ideal as we love the peace and quiet and we certainly got that at the Casa San Juan. I loved the view onto the pine trees from the upstairs bedroom window. You could lie in bed and hear the birds and see the trees - it was idyllic. I also enjoyed sitting at the front of the villa or by the pool and reading.

We soon got used to the hire car (essential) and the road network and made two visits to Barcelona. To do this we parked the car in Vilassar de Mar on the coast and took the train. It is very easy and certainly better than driving - the trains were cheap and very clean. The villa is conveniently located for doing this. We also explored the coast northwards towards the Costa Brava and had a lovely day in Gerona which is well worth a visit. The kid's favourite was Gnomo Park at Lloret de Mar - a small amusement park with playground, animal park and small rides. The best beach was near here at Santa Christina. It is a small sandy bay with pine woods all around.

Please feel free to use our comments on the website or where ever you would like to.

Best wishes

Sarah Walters

Asunto: Re: Casa Sant Juan, July 30 to August 13 - how was it?

Dear Charlie,

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Casa Juan. The villa more than met our expectations. The convenience of only 10 minutes to the train station at Cardedeu and 40 minutes ish to Barcelona city helped to make the stay even more enjoyable. Our hosts were extremely helpful especially when we had problems with the electrics to the pool after an amazing thunderstorm. In saying that the pool was much better than the photos you had on the website and Maria explained that they had re furbished it this year. Nothing seemed too much trouble to them and it showed in the house and surroundings. The people in Catalonia were some of the most helpful and friendly encountered in Spain and we will certainly be re visiting the area

I hope this will be of help to you in perhaps re writing the advert as I feel you are underselling the charm and comfort of Casa San Juan in your web page. We would certainly recommend the villa to any one who likes to get off the beaten track and not stay in "ordinary houses".

Yours Elaine and Michael Barrett

Asunto: Re: Casa Sant Juan - 15th August - how was it?


We had a great stay in Casa Sant Juan - it was everything we expected and more. T

I thought the description of the house was extremely accurate, although the pool has been completely refurbished and the pictures on the web site don't reflect that. We had plenty of space for the 7 of us - the kids loved the pool, the table tennis and just the general sense of space around the house. The house was immaculately clean, lots of supplies of towels, linen etc. Jordi, Pepita and Nuria (sp?) were there to meet us and were very welcoming and friendly.

We found the location ideal for the sort of holiday we wanted - we drove into Barcelona for about 4 or 5 days (driving fantastic in August - no traffic jams etc. and parking a dream in free parking bays - worth mentioning to people. House had an excellent street map - navigated our way round no problem) - explored the Rambla, Barri Gotic, Tibidabo, Montjuc, Sagrada Familia etc. Lots to keep the kids entertained without boring them with museums etc. or doing a lot of walking with my slightly older father! We also went up into the national parks to walk and a trip to Montserrat. And of course the beach....we never got as far as the Costa Brava, kids were perfectly content in the beaches north of Mataro.

All in all a great holiday!

Dear Charles

We have now returned from an excellent holiday at San Juan. Unfortunately my wife immediately deposited all the details in the rubbish bin on our return, I have some friends who may be interested in using the villa next year. So can you send me the appropriate website link so that i can pass it on. As to comments a recommendation to friends is the only recommendation
