This villa is absolutely fabulous, beautiful stone house, lovely garden with a pool in a pretty quiet private setting. The house is tastefully decorated with all comforts, the kitchen is very well equipped The family area upstairs is comfortable and spacious, fantastic veranda, lovely bedrooms, the list could go on and on. We a family of six - kids 22,18,17 and 13 - had a great time. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone. We were sorry to leave.

We have stayed in many villas across Spain over the years but none have matched Can LAulet for its beauty and space. We felt more like we were staying in a friend's house. The shops were nearby and the beautiful town of Besalu where we got our fix of Tapas! We would highly recommend L'Aulet, but would prefer it kept a secret as we will be booking again next year!
