Hi, I’m Susan.
Over the years, I tired of having to compromise when travelling as a family or with friends compared to some of the beautiful luxury spaces I’d been able to enjoy as a solo traveller or as a couple. As an interior designer, I knew there had to be a better way.
So, in 2018 I created my first luxury space for family and friends, integrating luxury and cleanliness of a 5-star hotel with the space and comfort of a vacation rental / holiday accomodation.
It was an immediate hit, and so I began to search out some of the most beautiful and emblematic buildings which through the passage of time had become unloved. Working with my excellent team, we brought them back to life, complete with the luxuries of modern living, but without losing the timeless charm and period features that made them so amazing in the first place.
Today, through the Espais Roca portfolio, you can experience living like a local in 10 amazing locations throughout Europe with more coming soon.
Meanwhile, in 2020, we launched our Boutique Maison Canto De Luz, in Porto, Portugal. (www.cantodeluz.com) The Maison concept is simple, our guests feel as if they are staying with friends in a luxury home and not in some soulless chain hotel, whilst enjoying homecooked food, great wines and local delicacies. It clearly resonates – we are now number 1 on Tripadvisor in Porto, and have new Boutique Maison projects underway on the amazing islands of Malta and in Mallorca, Spain.
EspaisRoca believe that
Our approach came together little by little, through listening closely to what our guests wanted. Today, we are lucky to be fully booked nearly all of the time.
We are also developing new spaces and concepts – so more exciting surprises are to come.

We loved everything: the elegant and carefully furnished rooms, the breakfast varying each day with local specialties
