The house is rustic style, with a comfortable lounge, leather sofas and log burning stove, a dining room, a large well-equipped kitchen and a separate utility room. There is a second lounge upstairs and a balcony overlooking the mountains. There are four bedrooms with beds for eight people plus a travel cot. The surrounding area is wonderful to explore by foot or by car. There are delightful villages, Romanesque churches, miles of well marked footpaths and numerous stunning views. Can Benet is the perfect place to get away to a peaceful mountain environment and still enjoy all the comforts and modern conveniences of home. It is a paradise for children, with a safe river to swim in, dams to build, camps to make and woods to explore. It is a great place for adults too, with plenty of space to relax and soak up the sun, enjoy the scenery, a dip in the river, mountain walks on the doorstep and star gazing at night.

About the neighbourhood
The area is criss-crossed by hundreds of miles of ancient footpaths and forestry tracks. These paths are well marked and mapped. Many walks can be started from the doorstep. There are maps and walking guides of the area in the house. Cycling is popular in this area for keen cyclists who enjoy the challenge of the mountain roads. Bikes can be hired in the nearby town of Ripoll.
