You will stay during two nights in el Mas Vermell, a traditional Catalan farmhouse built in the XVII century and dedicated, generation after generation, to the cultivation of land and the husbandry of livestock. Besides, you will combine this stay with the possibility of doing a great combination of cycle routes while visiting the most representative villages of el Baix Empordà (Ullastret, Peratallada, l'Estartit, Parlavà, Torroella de Montgrí and Palau-Sator among others).

The farmhouse is composed of five different apartments identified by colours. In this case, we suggest you to stay in the red one.

All the apartments preserve the typical beauty of the traditional architecture of l'Empordà (stone walls, wooden beams, rustic furniture, a fireplace) combined with the actual facilities (heating system, television, ceramic hob, internet connexion, air conditioning and so on) to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
This, in particular, has two double bedrooms, a full equipped kitchen and bathroom.

Outside each apartment you will find a comfortable and cozy terrace, with tables and chairs, from where you will be able to enjoy the fantastic views and tranquility of Fontanilles.
There is also a common picnic area with barbecue, fully equipped as well.

Besides, the price of this package includes a one day rental of a pair of touring bikes that you can use to do any of the cycling routes or visit villages around Fontanilles. We suggest you some of the most varied and interesting ones (for all levels).
