This beautifully renovated 18th century Spanish estate (complemented by an additional 13,000+ sqft of residential structures), has retained all the grandeur and style of the elegant mansions of the period, while at the same time featuring the most modern of conveniences within its resplendent walls.
The house sleeps up to 36, with additional staff quarters, making it ideal for a private family getaway, intimate wedding or an informal house party. A graceful arched doorway leads into a series of inviting lounges, with magnificent views over the snow-capped Pyrenees, ideal for relaxing with friends. Cool alabaster walls frame the grand salon’s majestic fireplace, making it the perfect place to curl up with your favourite book.
Each bedroom is uniquely decorated in delicate Catalan tones, complemented by locally sourced rugs, unique family heirlooms, and individual fireplaces, some opening on to their own private terraces with far-reaching views of the Costa Brava. Sink into a deliciously deep oval bath, surrounded by glass walls that open onto the surrounding forest, for the ultimate in tranquillity.
