The same family has lived in Can Frare, since the house was built, over 200 years ago. All of these photos on this page are former inhabitants of Can Frare.
Can Frare is Listed as a House of Architectural Merit and is built from traditional materials such as sabina wood & thick stone walls, whitewashed with cal.
Traditionally, the inhabitants of the finca lived exclusively off this very land – using firewood from the forest behind the house, water from our natural well, cultivating olives, figs, oranges, lemons, vines, growing vegetables & keeping sheep, bees, goats, horses and a pig. All the land was cultivated by hand, with the help of horses for ploughing. The variety of domestic livestock, which all needed shelter, and the need to store agricultural products, explains the large size of Can Frare – which is 400 square metres.
