On the border of the sea, in Spain


A traditionnal Mas (Catalan farmhouse) with 39 rooms, some of which have private gardens, in the green countryside of the Costa Brava. This paradise far from the crowds, 4km away from beaches, at the end of a private road, surrounded by 30 hectares of garden and fields awaits you. The Mas Sant Jaon, the recipe for holidays under the sun where you feel at home !

Enjoy the Catalan sun tempered with a sea breeze; walks by the seaside along beaches as far as the eye can see; saunter though the village of Escala with its port, its market and its old town; gastronomy from the region prepared with love by your Chef... or by you, if you wish so; a hosting couple that welcomes you and pampers you as if you were at home. 

Allow to rest... in the shadow of the bougainvilleas beside the pool with a cocktail in hand

The secret of this recipe? The freedom to feel at home; the choice to do what you want when you want with or without your kids; a ticket that is all-inclusive for 7 days, 14 days, 21 days... actually, why not for the whole summer...!

A word from your hosting couple: 

«How wonderful it is to simply relax by the side of the pool. Our 16th Centure Catalan "mas", nestled between the montgri and the coastal dunes of Sant Marti d'Empuries, awaits you. Come and enjoy lazing about, a game of ttennis, or a bout of water-skiing. Let yourself be pampered, we'll take care of everything. See you this summer!»

Hugues, Marie-Anne and Pénélope

The rooms at the Mas Sant Joan

In the main building, the Mas, guests can find a double, a triple and a quadruple room. Those three rooms are ideal for a family with small children as the game rooms, dining room are also situated in the Mas...

The remaining rooms are all situated in the "masias": little typical Spanish houses. The masias rooms are all double/ triple rooms and 6 ot those masias have a private connecting garden with the room next to it. Those masias with the private garden can thus only be reserved by two...
