El Cosme has set a new standard for our holidays, everything you wish for at an excellent price !

We (10 adults and 10 kids) absolutely enjoyed our stay at El Cosme. We have stayed in more then a dozen large holiday villas throughout Europe, and El Cosme has set a new standard. Large clean bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a poolside covered terrace with fridge, a pool with a stunning view, a perfectly kept lawn, a covered barn with ping-pong and football table, a unique sense of privacy in the middle of nature and so much more. I have very fond memories of our group sitting around a tripod with a huge pan of patatas bravas on top. The region around El Cosme is unspoiled by mass tourism, but offers more then enough intresting towns and cities to visit and stunning nature to enjoy. Be sure to check out Pont de Pedret for a dive in the cool water under this magnificent medieval bridge.

Hello Charlie,


Cal cosme is an very good place, ours holidays was exellent and we were really impressed.

For each one was very importante to have a bathroom with WC in her bed room for her independance.

Thank you with Pilar and its family for their kindness

Thank you for your explanation concerning the direction text was perfect. Just it's possible, for your futur customers to drive in C16 and to leave N°95 BERGA SOUTH then to follow AVIA and l' Espunyola after bakery it is the same way.

We explored the East, South and North of Catalonya (Figueres, Barcelona and Andorra). It's a very beautiful region. We were on Berga for food, which is very practical !!

The kids was every day in the swimming pool and the barbecue area we allowed to eat almost every day outside.

We had minor problem with the dishwasher the last day. It made an unusual noise. It would be necessary to warn Pilar because I am not sure it functions still a long time…

Everyone unite with me to thank you

Best regards
Isabelle LOPEZ

Hi Charlie,


Just to let you know that we all had a great holiday. The place (Col Cosme) was amazing, we were really impressed. The standard of the house was excellent, it was so clean and the fact that we all had our own rooms with en-suite made it much easier for everyone. The area is stunning and we done some drives up into the mountains, although it was a bit hairy on the corners sometimes it was worth the trip because we saw some stunning sights.

Pilar and her husband and family were so accommodating upon our arrival - we had lost our other party en-route (you were right, getting out of Barcelona was a nightmare!) and we all didn't arrive until late in two loads and their family who were having a party didn't mind and came to help and drove the other half of our party to the house about an hour or so later. They were so helpful and checked everything was OK.

I can't recommend it enough and was just so impressed with everything. Thank you very much for sorting out all the arrangements and ensuring our holiday was totally enjoyable.

Will be in touch for a holiday next year!!!!!

All the best,
Charlotte & Keith Mitchell

Our stay at Cal Cosme was delightful. Even though we did not have much luck with the weather, we greatly enjoyed the house and our time there. The house, being a bit isolated, allows for a very calm environment.


The only neighbors are cows so you can enjoy listening to the sound of their bells. The views of the landscape are gorgeous. There are some nice walks / foot trails just around the house, enough to change every day for a
couple of days. The pool has a decent size for playing, a bit small for doing laps. The house is very comfortable with a large living room and fire place.


It is perfect to accommodate a large group of people and the 3 floors allow people to keep their independence. The covered barbecue has a nice size, and it definitely contributed to making our stay very enjoyable. There is a small and flat grass lot just in front of the house, big enough to have a net to play badminton. There are some markets in the city nearby on specific days of the week; you can do grocery shopping by car with a 20min trip one way. We did not try the restaurant nearby the house, but it looked appealing.


We will keep excellent memories from this vacation!

Charlie,

Cal Cosme was a great base for our exploration of Northern Catalunya. The directions from Barcelona were excellent and as we approached the house we realised what a beautiful and dramatic location it occupied. The owners met us on site and were very helpful. We had one incident with the plumbing however the owners soon sorted this out, and a plumber was on hand to put everything right.

We were able to explore the area from Monserrat in the south to Andorra and southern France in the North and tied in a weekend break in Barca on the way home. The whole experience was excellent. As mentioned the house provided an excellent base and had everything we needed (with the exception of a kettle now in place). We explored the local area using Berga as our main town for food and supplies. The kids had a great time in the pool and the outdoor eating area and barbeque meant we ate out every night!

Thanks again for all your help and guidance.

The Parkers, Jarvis's and Regans.
