Stayed for 2 weeks and had a wonderful time! Helen and Francis were absolutely lovely and the place is utterly charming. The area around Mas San Nicholau is fantastic and Francis and Helen were the perfect hosts who got the balance between helpfulness and privacy spot on. They were very flexible and allowed us to stay an extra couple of days with no issues at all. whilst the Wifi worked well in other parts of the property, the Wifi signal in our apartment was very weak and unpredictable and this sometimes became frustrating if trying to work. We stayed for two weeks and a midweek room clean or change of sheets which would have been nice to have. Otherwise everything was perfect and we would definitely come back!

If you want to get away from it all in north Catalonia, then this is the place. Good central location, with good links. Calming rustic property and grounds (and swimming pool), local access to great food and wine, with lots to see and do - or just rest and relax in the grounds. Helen and Francis are the perfect hosts, always on-hand to offer assistance and useful information. Highly recommended.

Hemos disfrutado un hermoso fin de semana en la casa de Helen y Francis. Ellos han estado todo el tiempo atentos a nosotros y nuestros bebés y pendientes constantemente de que tengamos todo lo necesario para que nuestra estadía sea perfecta. La casa es muy acogedora y se encuentra en una ubicación privilegiada. Cerca de varios pueblos y rodeada de naturaleza es un lugar ideal para descansar y desconectar, ya sea en familia (como en nuestro caso) o en pareja. Hay una piscina, pista de tennis y mesa de ping pong para disfrutar del día. Pero también se puede caminar por los alrededores o simplemente descansar. Muy recomendable.

We are Francis and Helen, originally from the UK. We moved to Catalunya to live a gentler, sunnier life, By accident, almost, we discovered Mas Sant Nicolau - a special, tranquil place in an incredibly diverse natural environment. With an 11th century hermitage at the gate, we restored our ancient country house and converted it to provide us with a home and seven cottages in spectacular and lovingly tended gardens with pool and tennis court. You couldn't wish to be in a more beautiful environment. Sharing this space is a wonderful way to meet so many lovely people from all over the world, who relax and unwind and find themselves again. We love airbnb people - welcome!

What do we do in our spare time? We get inspired by the nature all around us ,play music (Francis) and paint (Helen), cook fabulous meals with local produce and from our own garden, walk with our dogs through the forest and by the sea. and in winter go skiing for the day. We pick fresh lemons and oranges from the garden, collect wild asparagus and mushrooms from the forest.

We live in the main house alongside our seven country cottages, so we make great friends with visitors and love to learn about their lives and customs. We also support an international volunteering scheme so when you stay it is quite possible that you will meet other people from anywhere else in the world.

Our life motto? Enjoy the moment and the rest will follow! And when it doesn't go right, start again!
