Ricard was born in Barcelona, but his father was from Girona. For this reason, he and his sister spent summers in Vall d’en Bas, near to El Casot. These childhood memories led him to buy about 20 years ago, an abandoned and ruined farmhouse known as Mas el Casot. Little by little, during the weekends, all of these piles of rubble became a home. Eight years ago, Ricard decided to change his life and devoted all his efforts and resources to finish the construction. His intention was to build a rural house in which guests will find themselves not only comfortable, but also welcomed by its ancient stones, the fireplace, the pieces of furniture, which were carefully selected so as not to break the charm of the origin of the house, or details such as the farming tools which are found all over the place.

Beside El Casot there is a small house where we, Ricard and Teresa, live. Our dogs Blaki, Pelut and his son Petitó are also part of our family. They are great hosts. Oh! And you may also get to know Pitu. He is a kitten, but he actually believes he is like his brothers: a brave Catalan sheepdog. But please, don’t tell him about it!
