Located at the top of a hill on the edge of a small town, 5km from Girona, and just minutes from the Costa Brava, stands this impressive building, built around an 11th century tower, surrounded by 14th century square fortifications. This unusual property has maintained the natural feel of a castle and has many interesting rooms with views of the surrounding countryside.
From the lookout tower, 360 degree panoramic views stretch all the way to the Pyrenees Mountains where they meet the Mediterranean coast and the French border. The castle also borders the Gavarres mountain range, a lusciously forested area, criss-crossed by an extensive network of footpaths, ideal for walkers.
Entry into the castle is either through curving stairs around the outside of the tower, or through the middle of the tower.
The owners have made a point of creating separate sitting areas so that all tastes are catered for, from the spacious living room with its welcoming sofas and fireplace, to the quieter library areas, or from the gallery that contains paintings and works of art, to the activity room with its TV and DVD player.
The vaulted dinning room with its ultra long table will be a wonderful focus for your holiday feasts, and for less formal meals there is a pleasant paved stone terrace where you can dine while enjoying the nearby garden and greenery.
The private pool has a pool house with a shower and bar. There are more tables and chairs positioned on the grass along the fortification walls, offering views of the valley, the town and hillsides below.
