Tranquility and nature near Barcelona

OUR STORY

Can Morei is an old farmhouse renovated into eight large fully-equipped apartments with lots of light, windows and terraces set within nature. The apartments, pool and jacuzzi are accessible and adapted for people with disabilities. We merge into our surrounding environment, ensuring we respect the local materials of stone, wood and iron in the construction process while still combining modern functional comforts. 

  • LIGHT, SPACE, NATURE & TRANQUILITY

    Enjoy nature in the authentic setting of an old family farm

  • SAVOUR THE PEACE

    Relax to the sounds of nature

  • LIGHT, ALWAYS

    Light, landscape and colour every month of the year

  • WATER, SOURCE OF LIFE

    The forest, the river, the birds, the flowers; live amongst them

Eco Certifications

Just as we admire each of our hosts for their singularity, we appreciate that their sustainability journeys are also unique. Because of this, we do not require our hosts to have an eco certification or two under their belt, we simply guide them on improving their sustainable business practices one imperfect – but positive – step at a time. If a host has eco certifications they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

Biosphere

Biosphere develops a private, voluntary and independent certification system, based on the principles of sustainability and continuous improvement.

Through the fulfillment of a series of requirements, it offers the opportunity to companies in the sector to design products and services of a new non-aggressive tourism model, satisfying the current needs of customers and users, without compromising future generations.

NGOs & Local Impact Projects Supported

Each of our hosts strive to have a positive impact on their local communities. Some of our hosts already have established connections with local partners to enrich the lives and wellbeing of their communities, others are in the process of creating these long term relationships. If a host has local NGO connections they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

AFP Miralles-Orpinell

11 years ago Jordi founded an association for forest management and fire prevention; APF Miralles-Orpinell. He was the president for the first few years and recently took over the presidency once more. Currently this association manages 13 municipalities in the area with a total of 15,000 ha of forest.

In July 2021 a large fire (1700 ha) was within the scope of the association. They worked all summer with various administrations and a Restoration Project has been drawn up for the burnt area to encourage the vegetation to grow back, prevent erosion and promote biodiversity.

Anoia Tourisme

Jordi actively participates in the creation of the region’s new tourism board to connect all of the local tourist services and to promote the region of Anoia as a slow and sustainable tourism destination. This is expected to boost the local economy, infrastructure and provide more jobs to locals.

Accessible & Inclusive Tourism

Can Morei are also dedicated to their accessibility project and work hard to provide accessible tourism for all. On the International Day of Tourism they participated in two presentations, one at the University of Baja California in Mexico and the other at the Tourism Fair in Bergamo to further share their knowledge and promote good practices within accessibility tourism.

What our hosts say..

Transparency is essential if we are all going to grow and improve together and this is why we have dedicated this section to sharing what we love about each place and its hosts. We work with each of our hosts to improve their guest experiences, sustainability practices and local impact, this is where you can learn more about that along with what still needs to be improved, the measures being taken to ensure our hosts continue to move forward and every now and then we’ll come back to update you on their progress.

November 2021

The Reixachs family have inspired me immensely from the first with their dedication towards combining very natural design in a historic building and offering inclusive and accessible stays for their guests. It’s also fantastic to see how committed they are to their local community and how they have established a strong collaboration with other local tourism businesses to create a hub of sustainable and slow tourism in the Anoia region which will benefit their local economy and people.

Their ongoing sustainability efforts – including a 25,000 litre rainwater collection tank, insulation certified at the maximum level, use of natural materials and a 60kw heating and hot water biomass boiler – are commendable. They use local suppliers as much as possible, offer local organic wines to guests and promote local places of cultural interest, particularly heritage cultural tours. We are so excited to watch a new cluster of sustainable Hosts form within this region!

You’ll find us in the heart of the Anoia region, within the Carme valley beside the river. Walking or cycling tours from the house, exploring the river and its waterfalls and the vast landscape of vineyards are delightful options for guests. A nearby 15th Century Gothic church and several small villages with restaurants and wine producers enchant the culturally curious.

The apartments are fully equipped with appliances well-suited for family life. The surrounding villages offer local restaurants to enjoy Mediterranean food and local wines and it’s possible to organise wine tastings and small musical concerts for groups.
