What you will love about this home

We live in a family house in Olot, in the countryside of Girona. It's located in a nice residential area, very quiet and peaceful - and yet, you can walk to the center. The local market and central square are just 10-15 min away by foot (walking distance). It's a house with three floors. A few stairs to go up and down but the living room kitchen and garden are in the same level. -Street level: a big garage, laundry room, bicycles... -1st floor: living-room, garden, a bathroom (with shower) and a spacious kitchen. -2nd floor: 3 bedrooms, a computer room, a bathroom. The kids' room has bulk beds and plenty of toys. The third bedroom is our guest room for the moment with a single bed that converts into double bed (2 mattresses at the same level). You'll find everything you need in the house: washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, oven, microwave, kettel.... Air conditioning for the summer, gas heating for the winter, lots of toys, board games and children books... We also have 2 bikes for adults (one of them electric bike) and 2 bikes for kids. We could swap them if we don't take them with us. In the garden: sunshade, table and chairs to eat outside, sofa, a hammock and a little swing. Car exchange is negociable. We've got a Peugeot 2008 bought in January 2015, automatic gear.

What you will love about this neighborhood

Olot is a small town (28,000 inhabitants) famous for its nature and beautiful surroundings: a beautiful valley, dormant volcanoes, breathtaking forests, charming medieval villages and a paradise for gourmet lovers. Everything within 30 min driving. If you drive 1h you get to the Costa Brava beaches! And 1h30m to Barcelona :) What else can you look for? The old quarter of Olot (shops, market, restaurants, cafeterias...) is just 10 min walking or you can go by car in 5 min and park there. There are plenty of parks for the children and nice avenues to walk in. Olot is located between the Pyrenees and the Costa Brava, so when you exchange with us you can have all in one: Mountain & Beach ! DISTANCES TO MAIN CITIES/ATTRACTIONS: 15 min to Besalu (famous medieval town) 25 min to Banyoles (lake to swim and bike around) 30 min to Camprodon (lovely Pyrenees village) 35 min to Girona (wonderful city for a day trip) 30 min to Figueres (Dali Museum) 35 min to Vic (another medieval town) 1h to the Costa Brava beaches (Roses, Empuries, Empuriabrava, L'Escala, Llancà, Estartit...) 1h30m to the more beaches in Costa Brava: Pals, Tamariu, Begur, Calella,...) 1h30m to Barcelona 1h to Vallter (ski resort) WHAT TO DO IN OLOT: It is a great place if you like hiking, biking and nature as a whole. If you travel with kids, they will love it too! We have farms (that can be visited on a guided tour), plenty of activities organized for familles, green spaces to play, horse-riding, swimming-pool 5 min away by car, ... Swims in the nearby small rivers is also possible. We can point you to lots of easy hikes to do with children. - Fageda d'en Jordà: Famous forest. Hiking is fantastic, specially in autumn and spring when the leaves change the colors. - Dormant Volcanoes: you can climb different volcanoes (easy) or even fly over them on a hot air balloon! How cool is that? - Biking: Olot is in a valley so there are many bike routes you can do to visit the beautiful villages in the area (we can point you to a 30km route that you can do on an electric bike) - Hiking: if you like hiking, Olot and La Garrotxa area is your paradise. We can point you to different day excursions for all levels (even with kids). From "enchanted rocks" to beautiful waterfalls... there is a lot to explore. - Swimming-pool: the public swimmingpool is just 5 min by car from our home - VERY RECOMMENDED to visit medieval towns around such as Vic, Camprodon, Besalu, Hostalets de Bas... (Google them!)
