VILLA RENTAL IN SPAIN

Celra Villa Rental Photos and Description

If you have dreamed of living in a castle, but thought it could never happen in this modern world, think again! This incredible villa rental in Spain's Catalonia region is ready and waiting to make your dreams come true. Located near the Costa Brava, this historic (officially documented as over 1,000 years old!) villa in Spain offers the best of both worlds – a laid-back, tranquil experience on site, but only a short distance from many extraordinary Catalan historic, cultural, and scenic sights and activities. You may want to sample many of the fresh veggies, seafood, spices, and wines for which Catalan is famous, but we recommend that you take advantage of the facilities at this Spain villa, and settle in on top of the tower in the lookout area for morning coffee, or an evening glass of wine. Enjoy the 360 degree panoramic view while watching the sun rise or set, or wait for later in the evening, when the stars come out and seem to be within your reach.

This historic 11th century ‘Castle of Ladders’, listed on Spain’s register of historical monuments, is officially recognized as over 1,000 years old! It has a round tower from the 11th century surrounded by 14th century square fortifications. From the lookout atop the medieval tower, 360 degree panoramic views stretch all the way to the Pyrenees Mountains where they meet the Mediterranean coast and the French border. The property offers a large paved stone terrace with plenty of chairs, tables to seat 18, and protective umbrella for outdoor dining. 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 and hillsides below. Entry into the castle is either through curving stairs around the outside of the castle, or through the middle of the tower. There are lush gardens and trees surrounding the entire hilltop property. In addition, there is a new gas BBQ (stainless steel, 6-burner).

(1200 m2) Ground Floor: To the left of the entryway, there is a large kitchen with double ovens and a microwave, granite countertops, breakfast nook with seating for six, and a laundry area with washer/dryer and ironing area. A large door leads outside to a lovely al fresco dining area, where you will catch the scent of the lemon tree and herbs growing nearby. Double doors lead from the kitchen to the main dining room, which seats up to 20 people. There is an entrance in this dining room to the castle’s wine cellar. A small gallery that contains paintings and works of art is also on this level. A half bath with washbasin and toilet can be found on this floor. First Floor: Off of the large entrance hall, there is a second large kitchen with breakfast nook and seating for four, 2 separate spacious dining areas, and a library with fireplace and roman arch window. There is a roomy main living room with a large fireplace, and comfortable leather furniture. Next to this is a smaller sitting area, complete with games and an HDTV. Bedroom #1 is here as well, and contains a standard double bed (140cm), with full ensuite bathroom including shower, tub, washbasin, and toilet. Bedroom #2 is next door, and has two single beds, which can be joined together to form one 180 cm king-size bed. A half bath, with washbasin and toilet, are adjacent to this bedroom, but it shares the shower/tub of Bedroom #1. The caretaker's wing can be accessed from the inside of the building through a door on the open passage way. Second Floor: The remainder of the bedrooms and baths are on this level. Bedroom #3 has a standard double bed (140cm), and full ensuite bathroom, with shower and tub, washbasin, and toilet.

On this level, there is also a spacious living area with TV and American DVD/VHS players, 54 available movies, a CD player, and a small bar. From the living area, a door leads into the center of the tower, and a peaceful meditation room. It is across the meditation room to the tower’s inner staircase where you will climb to the third floor. Third Floor: At the top of the staircase is a round library, with a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. In the center of the library is a spiral staircase. This takes you to the top of the tower, where you will exit onto a private area offering an uninterrupted view of the Pyrenees Mountains and the Catalan countryside.
