We, your Dutch hosts at Torre Nova Resort, are Jacqueline Brakel and Geert van Heijningen. In July 2007 we moved with our children from Amsterdam, the Netherlands to Catalonia. Besides the climate, particularly the quality of life appeals to us.
After a one and a half year search looking for the adequate property, during which we saw everything from ruins to priceless palaces, we found the perfect spot for our dream holiday resort: Torre Nova. We immediately fell in love with the monumental 'casa señorial', a Catalan villa built in 1900 by the Marques of Gironella. Now, almost 6 years later, we are completely settled and we really feel at home.
On our estate you'll find yourselves at home in the real Spain. Breakfast with fresh baguettes, the doors wide open. A walk through nature, a refreshing dip in the pool. Tapas with a glass of local wine and dining in your own garden. The small scale of our holiday resort guarantees a sense of calm.
The estate (9 acres) borders on one side to the historic village of La Torre de Claramunt, with a perfect tapas restaurant across the road, and on the other side directly to nature. Usually this type of building is located very isolated, but at Torre Nova you will have all amenities within 150 meters. The views outside are stunning as well as its arched entry with monumental staircase. The 4,5 meter high ceiling of the apartments will make you feel like a gnome.
Thanks to the comprehensive renovation, Torre Nova is now preserved for the future and has begun its second life with us. We deliberately chose for an authentic, cozy, small, luxurious holiday resort, with historic, comfortable apartments.
During the renovation, we paid a lot of attention to the balance between the modern comfort requirements and yet maintaining its original grandeur. Around the house we created a Mediterranean garden with terraces and a large lawn with a pool overlooking the green valley.
Sustainability is an important aspect of preserving the environment. Torra Nova has its own water spring and we also use renewable energy. The renovation was performed by the 'cradle to cradle' principle. All construction debris have been recycled and we used environmentally friendly construction materials. The water in the pool is treated using a method based on natural salt. Kind to the environment and a blessing for the swimmer ....
