Can Tallada (max 30 pers) with her architectural gardens is surrounded with a brick wall so lots of privacy. This inspiring place is situated in the charming old Catalan village Bordils and perfect for families, (sports)friends and business groups.

The space

The estate is divided into two separate houses and one studio. The former mother house (18 pers) is a monumental building from 1896 and consists 3 floors. On the ground floor, you can find the spacious kitchen/living room (10m by 5m), where residents can enjoy their meals during the day. French windows will lead you to the outside gallery and hearth. Our guests love to have their breakfast here, because of the magnificent view of the garden.

The central hall leads to the library, where you can enjoy a good book in peace and quiet at the hearth. The stone stairwell takes you to the first floor, where the living rooms of the Tallada family used to be. That is why this floor is the most decorated one, with beautiful ceilings and Art Nouveaux floors. Centrally situated, you can find a spacious room, that connects the 4 bedrooms, each having their own bathroom. On this floor, there is an outside gallery with a view of the garden and the neighborhood.
On the second floor, there is another central room, connecting 2 bedrooms and two family rooms (3-4 persons), each having their own bathroom. The two family rooms each have their own bathroom in the turrets on the upper balcony. This terrace offers you a magnificent view of the snowy mountain peaks of the Pyrenees.
The former servant house (8 pers) has its own kitchen, living room and 4 double bedrooms, 3 toilets and 3 bathrooms.
The studio (2+1 pers) is one open space with a kitchen, king size double bed and bath room. It has bed sofa for one more guest.
The end of 2014 we will have a special multi functional space in the pool house for all kinds of clinics and workshops like yoga or training programs.

The Unique Colonial 13 bedroom villa in Bordils, Catalonia, Spain is a very traditional, nice and clean house with plenty of room for a group of 15 persons. Beautiful and well kept gardens and a rather large and very clean pool with nice adjacent outside kitchen and “living area”. We had meals served three times a day and enjoyed the healthy, fresh and traditional regional food served by our helpful and friendly host Marieke. In the evening, there were fireplaces to keep us warm outside and inside as well as plenty of space for cozy dinners both in the kitchen and in the outside dining area. The communication with our host ahead of the stay was pleasant, fast and very accomodating to our needs. Thank you Marieke, we very much enjoyed our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to come back!

Mijn naam is Marieke, ik ben 55 jaar en (groot)moeder van 2 kinderen en 1 kleinzoon. Hoewel het reizen soms wel vermoeiend is voel ik me toch zeer bevoorrecht om in deze 3 prachtige steden van Europa te wonen: Girona, Den Bosch (woonplaats in NL) en in Antwerpen bij mijn partner Tony. Can Tallada is qua woonplek mijn absolute favoriet. Noem het maar mijn passie. Vanaf de eerste aanblik in 2000 op de toen nog troosteloze ruine was het liefde op het eerste gezicht. Het was niet altijd gemakkelijk, maar wel een groot voorrecht om deze bijzondere plek in ere te herstellen en zelfs nog mooier te maken. We zijn daar met recht trots op. Deze passie en liefde voor het huis en haar prachtige omgeving deel ik graag met anderen.
