Can Xarina is a fabulous 4 bedroom, family-owned holiday villa located in the most beautiful and unspoilt part of the Costa Brava, Catalonia. Comfortably sleeping 8 -9 people, the house affords a spacious and comfortable base from which to explore this stunning region, or to simply unwind and relax. The property has been lovingly resorted from its origins as an old farmhouse, or 'masia'. It has been renovated and enlarged with great care making sure that it maintains many original features, whilst incorporating the modern comforts required for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation. The L-shaped layout of the house means that it feels exceptionally spacious, light and airy with open plan living areas which are sociable and convivial.
The house stands in generous grounds with a lawned garden and a private 10 meter swimming pool and sun terrace. The pool area includes a loggia for shade, and the garden has plenty of space and privacy for games, sun bathing and al fresco living.
Located in a semi-rural position between the lovely towns of Pals and Begur, yet within easy reach of local amenities, this holiday home really does offer the best of seaside, countryside and convenience. There are beautiful walks out from the house to nearby woods and easy cycling down quiet country lanes or to the medieval town of Pals and beyond. And with the sea and the wide sandy beach of Pals just a few minutes drive away, Can Xarina offers everything you might want for an idyllic holiday with family or friends.

THINGS TO DO
The Costa Brava, or ‘Wild Coast’, is famous for its stunning coastline. Wide sandy beaches are punctuated by rocky outcrops and rugged coves, which nestle between dramatic pine tree covered cliffs. Few places compete with this idyllic region in terms of bathing spots to suit all tastes; you could probably visit a different beach or cove everyday of your holiday! Pals beach is an easy five minutes drive away from the house by car.
Local Culture & Leisure
Perhaps less well known, but equally enticing, the interior boasts medieval villages dotted throughout the rich Mediterranean countryside. Closer to home, the nearby medieval village of Pals is within walking distance of the house. There are a number music events throughout the summer such as the Cap Roig and White Summer festivals. This stunning region is host to a number of top golf courses that benefit from the natural beauty of the area.
Eating & Drinking
The area is renowned for its cuisine with wonderful food to be found at every level, from top rated Michelin restaurants to pop-up beach cafes and tapas bars. There are numerous restaurants within easy reach of the house, with specialities like grilled, locally caught monkfish and the hearty Catalan rice dish equivalent to paella, and plenty of options for the kids too! Furthermore the food and wine in this region is generally still excellent value.
The nearby city of Girona was recently voted as the best place to live in Spain. It is much quieter and less touristy than neighbouring Barcelona and makes a wonderful day trip from the house. To the north is Figueres, home town of Salvador Dali and his world famous museum. A short drive away in either direction you can reach the small towns of Torroella de Montgri or Begur, both of which offer great food shopping, dining and culture.
