Our family acquired this farm three generations ago. Lover of rural life, caring for the forest and especially fruit trees, our grandfather Josep, planted many of the trees that today characterize the landscape of El Porxo, in the heart of Montseny. As life in the countryside became increasingly challenging and less rewarding, our grandparents began transforming the estate's barns into small accommodations. Our grandmother, Maria Lluïsa, was well-versed in the long-standing tradition of rural tourism thanks to her parents. It was a family tradition to welcome people from all over to their home and immerse themselves in the experiences and cultures they shared. Today, this beautiful family project is carried on by Anna and Jaume. They continue with the same spirit of preserving the environment, maintaining and improving the various spaces of Can Baixeres, and taking care of the details and those who visit us.
AT EL PORXO, WE HAVE GROWN THROUGH SHARING, OPENING THE DOORS OF OUR HOME, AND INVITING OTHERS TO ENJOY IT.
