The history of Avinyonet de Puigventós and its surroundings

Although Neolithic industries have been found, the first signs of settlement in Avinyonet date back to Roman times, as evidenced by the Roman villa of La Font del Vilar. However, the first reference to the town does not arrive until the year 962 and under another name, that of Sant Esteve de Manibulo or Sant Esteve de Manol. The second reference to the town, already as Avinyó, is the name of a character: Berenguer d'Avinyó, already in the 11th century. Probably the most outstanding fact in the history of this town in Alt Empordà is the castle of Avinyonet, which gave rise to the town and was attacked in 1128 by Count Ponç II d'Empúries. The name of the town, however, was Avinyó until the 13th century. The diminutive has been used since the 14th century. In 1916, the toponym of Puigventós was added to distinguish it from Avinyonet del Penedès.

KorstiaanEmpordà en Famí­lia - With the family

Spend the New Year with family in a rural house!

It has truly been a great pleasure at the Empordà en Família rural house. Both the host Maite, a six star, and the house contributed greatly to the excellent time we spent there. Highly recommended.

MontseMas Susi - With friends

It's a fantastic house! Very large, very well equipped and with many quality details and good taste.

If you liked the photos, the house will surprise you even more. It is much more beautiful, bright and spacious. All the rooms in the house are very spacious and very well decorated. All furniture is new and in a good condition. There are many details for all tastes and ages. We have stayed there with 4 families with children and, honestly, we had plenty of room. It is spectacular and we found everything we needed. And the whole house was very clean and tidy. We have already started looking for availability to return very soon!

F. JavierGallaret del Pla - With friends

Three fantastic days at Gallaret del Pla.

El Gallaret del Pla was the most guessed choice possible, we had spaces to have a good time all together, and also corners to get lost. The house is fully equipped, there is nothing missing, all the elements are of high quality, as well as the kitchen utensils (including salt, oil, spices), everything to do what you want or what you know. The general decoration of the house is excellent, living rooms, rooms, gardens... And everything governed by Dolors, a kind person, and attentive to everything you might need for your stay. I hope to be able to enjoy it again very soon.

ManuelMas Verdaguer - With the family

Our second time at Mas Verdaguer, and we will certainly repeat it again

We already knew the house, but this time we were able to use the outdoor pool and really enjoyed it. It is ideal for our family because there are many of us (22) and it is difficult to find houses with so many double rooms and private bathrooms. The house was very clean and very well equipped, although there was no Italian coffee maker as stated in the description and we had to buy one. There was also an oil dipper missing and the first aid kit was empty. We were quite hot especially upstairs and the fans were not enough for everyone, with these hot summers some additional solution should be looked at in order to sleep more comfortably. We really enjoyed the common spaces, breakfast on the terrace, dinner in the dining room or watching a series together in the living room. In addition, the barbecue area is ideal for being able to cook for so many people and is super well equipped. The house is very close to Figueres which has a lot of services. Bàscara, the village next door, has a pharmacy, supermarket and a very good butcher. For sure we will repeat because we love this house and we spent some very special days there.

Naturaki respond: Thank you, Manuel, for your review. We are glad to know that you are repeaters of Mas Verdaguer and that you intend to repeat. Regarding the Italian coffee maker, it was in a cupboard (this was confirmed by the person responsible for cleaning). First aid kit we are not obliged to have one, that is why it is not full. And we don't use a setter for hygienic reasons. We take note of the air conditioning issue in order to assess it. Thanks for visiting!

Joan Maria Mas Espígol - With the family

Fighting with the passage of time is not easy

The small negative differences compared to our previous stay derive from the difficulty of immediately correcting inevitable but correctable wear and tear. Cheer up Jordi!

Naturaki respond: Thank you very much for leaving us your opinion, Joan Maria. We are glad that you had a good stay at Mas Espígol. Indeed, as you indicated and as I explained to you at the entrance, there were two facade lights that did not work, and that the plumber would try to come and fix during your stay, luckily all the rest of the exterior lighting it worked The plumber couldn't come and fix it right away. They were fixed after your stay. I am sorry that this incident caused you inconvenience and that it could not be resolved as immediately as possible as we would have liked. We hope to see you again on another occasion, Jordi.
