CASA PAU - AUTHENTIC CATALAN COUNTRY HOUSE

Gironella Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Situated privately in beautiful surroundings -view to fields and the Pyrenees

Casa Pau is an authentic Catalan country house with a lot of atmosphere, and situated privately in beautiful surroundings with view to the fields and the Pyrenees in the distance. It has been build on a rock and stands out beautiful in the landscape.

The house is carefully renovated, preserving the traditional style added modern accessories as dishwasher and washing machine. Inside, the house has two fully equipped kitchens, seven double bedrooms and a triple room, five nice bathrooms, two living/dining rooms with fireplace and several sitting areas.

There are TV and music equipment. Outside, there is a nice garden with a lawn and a pool-area with sunbeds and a swimming pool. Next to the house, there is a terrace-area partly covered, with a big dining table and a barbecue. Furthermore, there is an activity room with table tennis and table football. If you like gourmet food, the restaurant Els Casals, which has a Michelin star, is situated 2km down the road.

Catalonia - culture and landscape: Catalans pride themselves on good eating too, and you will find some of Spain's finest restaurants here. Catalan food is typically Mediterranean, featuring olive oil as its staple component. As the region is so geographically diverse, it provides a variety of fresh high quality meat, poultry, game, seafood, fruit and vegetables and a great variety of wild mushrooms. Fine red and white wines are produced here, and Catalan sparkling wines (cavas) are favourite celebratory wines around the world.

Finally Catalonia offers a wide range of activities to suit all ages and levels of fitness: Skiing, (in winter), all kind of water sports at the coast, horse back riding, cycling, hiking, golfing, art, shopping in Barcelona and Girona ... there are endless possibilities, so please take contact and we will do our best to help you.

Or how about watching a football match along with 98.917 other spectators on FC Barcelona's legendary Camp Nou? The best advise is to come to Catalonia and see!

Local area: The region Berguedá where the house is situated, where the Llobregat river makes its way from the Pyrenees down towards Barcelona. The landscape is hilly and the altitude is 500-600 metres above sea-level. Although very popular as weekend retreat for people from Barcelona, the region has not a lot of tourism. When you are on vacation here, you simply blend in and participate in the local life in the villages and towns in the area.

In the villages of Casserres and Montmajor, you will find a bakery a small grocery shop a bar and a restaurant. The two small towns Gironella and Puig Reig are situated on the bank of the Llobregat River. Here, you find several restaurants, shops and smaller supermarkets. The region is great for outdoor activities, walks, cycling, canoeing and many other things, and the location centrally in Catalonia, gives you the perfect base for a varied vacation, from the nature in the Pyrenees to the cultural experiences in Barcelona and the big towns of the area.

Catalonia, Spain: Catalonia, Spain has a distinct regional identity that borrows little form the rest of Spain. Catalans have their own language, and are intensely proud of their unique art, cuisine, folklore and long history. Ask the Catalans themselves and many will tell you that Catalonia is not a region but a nation. Not surprisingly, rivalry between the Catalans and the rest of Spain is an ongoing part of this country's history.

Catalans pride themselves on good eating too, and you will find some of Spain's finest restaurants here. Catalan food is typically Mediterranean, featuring olive oil as its staple component. As the region is so geographically diverse, it provides a variety of fresh high quality meat, poultry, game, seafood, fruit and vegetables and a great variety of wild mushrooms.

All in all Catalonia offers no end of opportunities for day trips and adventures, which together with its excellent communications, makes of Catalonia a top-class tourist destination in Europe.

BEAUTIFUL PRIVATE SPACE

  • 4 of 5
The property is located at the bottom of a private road with only one nearby house sharing that road. The views from Casa Pau are amazing; uninterrupted countryside. We saw about 3 cars on the horizon in our week sitting round the pool and you are not overlooked by a soul. Perfect for friends and family to share, the pool is wonderful and the location gorgeous. Nearby Gironella (10 mins drive) is great for a local butcher, baker and smaller supermarkets. Berga (15 mins drive) is larger with a beautiful restaurant on the hill (La Cabana). A 5 minute drive from the house is the Michelin starred "Els Casels" restaurant. This jewel not only provides mind blowingly good food and wine but also provides farm tours where you can see where your impending dinner was grown. The only downsides to the house were the nearby cockerels that announced sunrise approximately 2 hours before sunrise and don't stop announcing the fact until midday. Earplugs essential for the light sleeper. Also, we were a bunch of foodies and cooked quite alot. The house is in DESPERATE need of a refresh of the cooking equipment. All knifes dull, pans worn and generally lacking in utensils, pots, pans and jugs. A car is essential, but with one, you are very close to the Pyrenees and tons of beautiful scenery and activities (not to mention 75 mins from Barcelona). Would be perfect if the cockerels were killed.

The region Berguedá where the house is situated, where the Llobregat river makes its way from the Pyrenees down towards Barcelona. The landscape is hilly and the altitude is 500-600 metres above sea-level. Although very popular as weekend retreat for people from Barcelona, the region has not a lot of tourism. When you are on vacation here, you simply blend in and participate in the local life in the villages and towns in the area.

The two small towns Gironella and Puig Reig are situated on the bank of the Llobregat river. Here, you find several restaurants, shops and smaller supermarkets. They are both very lively towns, but be aware of the siesta. The regional capitol is Berga, which is a big town with 20.000 inhabitants. Here, you find a charming town centre with walking street and rambla, shops, restaurants and cafés, and in the outskirts, there are some big supermarkets for large shopping. Also, Berga has a very good tourist office.

Ski: For families where not all are skiers, the location might be a nice compromise, as the distance to Barcelona and the ski resorts is about the same. Enjoy the evenings together and go skiing or sightseeing during the day.
