Fantastic! We spent New Years Eve 2016/7 at Kristen’s place in Cruïlles and had a great time. The kitchen / dining area is a lovely space for cooking and hosting, the house is well equipped in particular with modern bathroom facilities and the central heating was definitely appreciated in the colder winter months. The village is lovely and quiet with beautiful scenery around and in a great location for exploring the Costa Brava. Highly recommended!


Kristen was very helpfull and nice. Our group of 5 had a wnderfull stay and I can recomend the house. Very nice village og beautiful views of the landscape from the terrase.


We had a lovely 8 day break at the house, which has a very warm feeling and lots of space. It is in a beautiful and tiny medieval village but with the bonus of a local shop and playground. It is a very quick drive to a number of fantastic beaches and restaurants and there are decent supermarkets nearby. The house is very well setup and we would recommend it – it could accommodate two families or a group of several adults and a few more as there are plenty of beds!


La maison est très agréable, spacieuse et atypique, elle est située dans un village médiéval très beau et très calme. Le seul bémol : les odeurs venant d’une porcherie à proximité… Kristen est très réactive aux messages. Nous regrettons toutefois que son staff ne soit pas aussi sympathique qu’elle. En effet, nous avons eu malheureusement un retard d’une heure pour le chek in (arrivés de France, nous nous sommes perdus et n’avions pas de personnes à joindre sur place mais uniquement le mail aux usa…). Nous l’avons payé un peu cher pour le chek out, puisque celui-ci étant indiqué “horaire flexibles” s’est transformé en 9h du matin sans possibilité de discussion avec la personne gérant les lieux. Ce monsieur, après nous avoir répondu assez vertement au téléphone (et sans nous avoir fait de visite au chek in) nous a mis en première position pour le ménage ! Ayant un enfant de 5 ans, nous avons particulièrement apprécié… (d’autant que nous ne demandions qu’une heure supplémentaire, c’est à dire 10h…) Donc, après ce séjours extrêmement agréable dans cette charmante demeure, nous avons eu a déploré ce départ un peu précipité. Il serait plus correcte dans ce cas là de noter sur le site : horaire : 9 h non négociable… The house is very nice, spacious and unusual, it is located in a beautiful medieval village and very quiet. The only downside: the odors from a nearby pig farm … Kristen is very responsive to messages. However, we regret that his staff is not as friendly as her. Indeed, we had unfortunately a delay of one hour for the chek in (arrived from France, we got lost and had no people to join on site but only to the mall usa …). We paid a little pricey for chek out, since it is stated “flexible timetable” has turned into 9am without possibility of discussion with the person managing the premises. This gentleman, after answering the phone roundly us enough (and without letting us visit to chek in) put us in first position for the household! Having a child of 5 years, we especially enjoyed … (especially since we do ask that an additional hour, ie 10h …) So after this extremely pleasant stays in this charming, we had lamented the departure a bit rushed. It would be more correct in this case to note at: schedule: 9 am nonnegotiable …


Nous sommes ravi de ce sejour dans cette etonnante demeure. Le village est calme et authentique, la maison est spacieuse et de caractere le premier abord peut paraitre froid mais on l’ apprivoise tres vite et on devient tres vite maitre des lieux. Elle est plutot centrée et permet de rayonner dans le triangle dalilien ,les alentours sont typiques c’est un vrai depaysement . Je le conseille vivement !


Kristen and Bas (the local contact) were fantastic and very welcoming. They did everything they could to help us and gave us loads of information on arrival. The villa itself is lovely with bags of character. The amenities are perfect for a long stay. Lunch on the terrace was a treat, as were the fresh figs from the tree in the garden. We were only there for a long weekend for a nearby wedding but wish we could have stayed for at least a week! There is a lot to explore in the local area and we would definitely recommend staying here for a long break.


An amazing place to stay! We were a large group going to a wedding in the area so perfect location, although very quiet and definitely need a car to get around. The place is quirky with loads of character, we were made to feel very welcome and if in the area again would definitely re book.


I booked on behalf of my daughter and my three nephews plus their respective partners. They had a great time and were very pleased with the house. They told me they appreciated the following features (not necessarily listed in order of importance): unique property with a lot of character; well-equipped kitchen; everything was spotless and worked perfectly; plenty of beach and bathroom towels; free wifi; nearby village shop/bar selling fresh bread and croissants as well as basic groceries; two separate sitting areas on different floors. I would like to add that Carme, the neighbour who let us into the house and showed us around, was very kind and helpful. All in all, the house was a success and I would recommend it to anybody looking for non-standard accommodation offering something different.


La estancia fue estupenda! La casa es maravillosa, cuidados todos los detalles al máximo. Reune todos los requisitos para dejar un excelente recuerdo. Una torre medieval restaurada con exquisito gusto. Dispone de muy buenos electrodomesticos, wifi, ajuar, menaje completo, TV, equipo de música, bicicletas, facil aparcamiento y una huerta con barbacoa. Habitaciones exteriores amplias y un pueblo medieval muy bien coservado cerca de playas y otros pueblos que merece la pena recorrer. Sin lugar a dudas muy recomendable. Gracias Kristen y hasta pronto!!


Partis avec une bande de copains, nous avons passé une semaine très agréable dans cette maison atypique et plein de charme. La déscription de la maison est fidèle à la réalité. Nous avons eu un peu peur d’avoir froids en plein hiver, mais la maison est très bien chauffée. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les séjours, un par étage (3), ou chacun pouvait se retirer pour lire ou autre, après une longue journée dans les environs. Avant de se retrouver dans la cuisine, bien équipée, pour un apéritif et un bon repas. Le village était très calme, presque vide, à cette époque de l’année. Mais il y tout ce qu’il faut à La Bispal, toute prôche. Beaucoup de chose à voir et faire dans les environs, même en hiver. Mention particulière pour le Musée Dali à Figueras et le GR92 qui longue toute cette très belle côte. Les proprietaires, pas présents sur place, nous avaient fournis beaucoup d’informations utiles avant de venir. Nous avons été bien accueillis par le Manager. Il y a eu un petit problème avec une douche qu’il est venu réparer de suite. Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de notre séjour à Cruïlles!


Great place , well preserved village with good access to surrounding area , sympathetically restored house in sunny setting with views from terrace over surrounding countryside , warm and cosy ( mid winter visit) . Host and local contact very easy to deal with.


We had a wonderful time in Kristens house with charming features – a tasteful mixture of vintage and modern style! The house (we called it our little “castle”) is a clean, quiet and warm place. It was a great place to spend quality time with family and it is small kids friendly. Lots of space, very well equipped kitchen, huge refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine, a football, rackets for playing, books… everything you might need during your stay. Beds were top! The photos of the advert match the “real life” house. We often visited the little playground across the street, and of course the attached garden which was great for the kids. We even had a little sundown party on the terrace on our last evening. Cruilles is a small village located in an area where you can explore / visit around many interesting places from museums, beaches and other beautiful towns. We followed the owners suggestions for places to visited (e.g. beaches like Sa Riera, Peratallada…) which were truely worth to see. All in all: recommendable and three thumbs up!


The house is really beautiful and charming. It is big, with many rooms. It is situated in a lovely village, in a very beautiful region. It is also very cool in summer which is very much appreciated. The owner, although not present, is very helpful and reactive by email. It is a pity though that the garden (shown in the photos) is not at the same level as the house. You have to cross a small pedestrian street to get there, and then go down stairs. It is very difficult to enjoy it with young kids: for example it is not possible to relax or have lunch /dinner in the garden while kids are sleeping in the house.


La casa es una pasada. Somos una familia de 5 miembrosos y hemos disfrutado mucho la casa. El comedor tipo csva, las habitsciones en la torre, la terrazs, el jardín… nobdabríamos con qué quedsrnis. Kristen y el equipo que gestiona el alojamiento nos han facilitado todo tipo de información. Ha sido muy fácil contactar con ellos y siempre muy rápidos en ka redpuesta. Cruïlles es in pueblecito muy ttanquilo rodeado de campos de labranza. La típica edtampa del Bajo Ampurdá. Ed una ubicación excelente para visitar toda la zona y las playas quedan a 30 minutos de la casa. Una experiencia a repetir. Gracias Kristen y al equipo de callCarlos. Un abrazo.


This house is perfectly situated within the pristine medieval town of Cruilles, yet is conveniently just a few minutes drive from the more modern town of Bisbal D’Emporda, which contains all amenities – gas station, supermarket, etc. – you might need for an extended stay in this part of Catalonia. It makes an ideal starting point for car or bike exploration of the region, which offers charming old towns and ruins, excellent restaurants (Raku in Cruces was particularly good), and great local wine. It seems like every time you round a bend, another beautiful old building or spectacular mountain view reveals itself! The house itself is more like a castle – absolutely huge and quite imposing. It has a large kitchen with an excellent stove and big fridge, as well as washer-dryer and dishwasher – in honesty, though, we did less cooking than anticipated as we were drawn into exploring the Catalan cuisine. There are several bedrooms – five or six I think – spread across two floors and then into the tower itself, which is visible from a few kilometers away in most directions. We stayed in the master bedroom which was very comforable and atmospheric. There is a large balcony on the upper floor from which to contemplate the stars at night or enjoy views of the nearby area in the day, and three living rooms, all of which are comfortable, though we spent most of the time in the kitchen-cum-living room as it was the coolest during August. The owner Kristen was very helpful and communicative and provided us with all sorts of tips on places to go and restaurants – I cannot recommend this place enough, both the house and the surrounding area were outstanding, and ideal for anyone (or a group – the place could probably fit 10 comfortably) looking to explore the Emporda region.
