Some much needed rest and relaxation was in order after this strange summer, so I decided to search for a lovely rural house to spend a few days. We needed to find somewhere relatively close, as we don’t have a car and weren’t in the mood to rent one. After sifting through loads of webs that were heavy on the rural and low on relaxation, we decided on Can Caponet.
Located near one of Catalunya’s less charming towns, Lliça d’Amunt, Can Caponet is an absolute haven of peace and quiet. About 40 minutes away from Barcelona, this country farmhouse with four bedrooms is complete with swimming pool, lush gardens, jacuzzi and farm animals.
The surrounding land boasts a vineyard and vegetable garden; produce that is then used to elaborate their breakfasts and dinners. There is not much to do here and this is a good thing. What could be better than to relax with a good book, go for walks and sleep?
The owners are extremely friendly and have placed great attention to every detail. The buildings and surrounding areas are immaculate and the interiors are tastefully rustic. Our bedroom came complete with a four-poster, canopied bed and had doors leading straight outside. We spent most of our time enjoying the massive bed swing, that looked like it was taken straight from a luxury beach hotel.
Night time was truly magical. The stars burned bright in the sky, there were candles dotted around and perfect night lights. Although it was a bit chilly at night, we couldn’t resist having a dip in the jacuzzi. This is the perfect place to get away for a few days.
