Time Out says
The ideal country house for city slickers
The setting is idyllic: an old house that's been done up, situated in the heart of the Sant Medir forest just five minutes from Girona. Mas Murtra is a 'masia' (Catalan country house) from the 14th century, and it has amazing traditional architecture, terraces, a private wood, open gardens and a pool. The house is divided up into four different apartments (Alzina, Figuera, Ginjoler and Magraner), but can also be rented as a whole, with space enough for 30 people. What makes Mas Murtra stand out is that it's an ideal country house for city slickers: if you feel a 'nature attack' coming on, you can just jump in your car and within minutes be in the centre of Girona city. And that means being able to enjoy culture, food and drink, and sport as well as the best of the local countryside.
