Occupying an impressive elevated location in the wooded environs of Vall Llobrega with sea views, Can Lari is a wonderfully spacious property belonging to charming local owners.  Designed and constructed to high standards, evidence of the meticulous attention to detail can be seen in the quality of the wood, ceramics and décor where a sympathetic blend of both traditional and modern materials creates a welcoming house very much in harmony with its rural surroundings.

Adjacent to the foothills of the Les Gavarres mountain range, the area around Vall Llobrega is famous for virgin forests of cork and pine. Just 1.5km away, the hamlet of Vall Llobrega is home to a local bar and two restaurants, both renowned for their excellent value and much frequented by the local Catalan community.  The tiny square is a meeting place for families and echoes to the chatter of old and young in the late afternoon and evenings. There is also a bakery within the hamlet and further shopping facilities are easily found just a 5 minute drive away.

The beautiful sandy beach of Platja d'en Castell is a 10 minute drive away, whilst the nearby port of Palamós is famed for its 'gambas' (prawns) and many other fresh and tasty dishes served in the numerous 'tapas' bars dotted amongst the cobbled back streets.

Parties paying the 6 person rate will have access to all five bedrooms. However the maximum of 6 persons must not be exceeded.
Use of air conditioning is payable locally.
