An ancient tree welcomes visitors arriving in Can Alemany. We also welcome you with open arms. Can Alemany is an ideal place to rest and relax. A place to disconnect, let go, and simply connect with nature.
Can Alemany’s history
Can Alemany, formerly known as Mas Salamones during the nineteenth century, is one of the oldest farmhouses in Santa Margarida de Montbui. During the seventeenth and eighteenth century, the expansion of wheat cultivations, and most specifically vineyards, enrich most of the area farms and its heritage.
After some years of neglect, in 2014, Can Alemany is restored and renovated with the desire to contribute to a more sustainable tourism, a growing green economy and the desire not to lose an important legacy for its people.
A family project
In 2004, Joan and Elisabet decide to purchase a farmhouse with the aim of preserving some rural areas very important to the region.
10 years later, in 2014, starts Can Alemany’s project. The old farmhouse is reformed, remodeled and converted into a Hotel-Apartments and has been welcoming guests from all over since 2016. The Hotel has been renovated with bioclimatic criteria to reduce energy consumption, the facilities are low-power and we have invested in a geothermal pump and a biomass boiler to achieve a highly sustainable building.
This large farmhouse surrounded by nature wants to be a welcoming space for those willing to relax, completely unwind and leave the daily routine behind.
We want for our guests to feel at home at Can Alemany while offering them the opportunity to discover our rich Catalan culture.
Completing our project you will also find CAN TORRA; a farmhouse that is and has been for many years a family meeting venue and that we have currently opened to rural tourism. A space that we hope our guests will enjoy as much as we have enjoyed it for so many years.
CAN TORRA is a farmhouse for full rent for 16 people located in Rubió. It features a swimming pool and different outdoor spaces.

One of our main goals is to make our environmental impact as minimal as possible. At the same time, we work to foster responsible and nature tourism and to contribute to the local economy by consuming local products and services.
In Can Alemany we have put a lot of effort into reducing the consumption of natural and energy resources by committing on geothermal air conditioning, which gives heat during winter time and cold in the summer. We also have a biomass boiler that helps us achieve a better comfort. The energy we consume comes 100% from renewable energy and our facilities are low energy consumption. Our rainwater catchment system allows us to use this water for irrigation of the garden.
We work with local suppliers and, when possible, we ask for their environmentally friendly products as well. Both our cleaning products and the gels and shampoos that we offer to our guests are environmentally certified and do not pollute the environment. Our breakfast combine local and organic products.
We put a special effort to let people know the cultural heritage of our region and to value our festivals and traditions. We strive so that the tourism that visits us also impacts the shops and activities in the area. We prioritize the maintenance, conservation and cleaning of the environment and we want to deepen into the protection and recovery of natural spaces of high ecological value in our environment.
Can Alemany’s team is one of the most important pillars of this project. We are very fortunate to have a group of strong, authentic and vital women who, thanks to their talent, help us shape our project with each passing day.
Can Alemany’s team is one of the most important pillars of this project.
Elisabet, a designer by profession and a neoartisan lover of details, decor and good taste, has managed to permeate Can Alemany with her spirit.
Cristina, Joan and Elisabet’s daughter, brings a more administrative, organizational and commercial view to the project. Part of her effort is dedicated to preserving Joan’s spirit in Can Alemany; a non-conformist who always tried to escape from the conventional and a passionate about new challenges. Can Alemany is a reflection of his restless spirit.
Lurdes helps us to improve every day by providing us with all her knowledge, effort and dedication. We thank her for helping us grow this project.
From the first day, Tamara has shown us the care she has of each and every details and corner of Can Alemany, making everything look as beautiful as the first day.
We are also very fortunate to have Màrius and Ivan; who dedicate their efforts into taking care of Can Alemany’s facilities, fields and olive trees. Although you might not see them often around, work and dedication are evident in every corner of Can Alemany and its surroundings.
The team is completed by Fernando and Ana, our housekeepers, who will be happy to help you whenever you need it.
