BEAUTIFUL, WELL-KEPT HISTORICAL CASTLE WITH PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL

Sagas Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Typical Catalan limestone house which can be dated back to 12th century

El Monasterío is beautifully situated on top of a hill, where the templars in the 1400s used the house as a base. This castle has now been fully restored and to put the icing on the cake there was in the summer of 2006 made a big and great swimming pool. The apartment has room for 14 people, which is perfect for one or more families on holiday together. This house will put up a solid base for an excellent holiday in the Catalan area.

Templars chose his time to build their castle here, because they had a good view of the area below from the top of the hill. If you look at pictures of the view, is also not in doubt that it was a very good choice. A better view is very hard to get. Besides the view, the location provides a very peaceful atmosphere, as there are no houses nearby. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday, this is the place.

Despite the renovation, there are still many relics from the time when it was the property of the templars. You can for an example still see the cannon holes in some places in the house, but the most prominent of all is that there is a small authentic church in the backyard, which dates back to the 13th century. If you are curious, you can borrow a key to the church from the owners.

The pool area of the holiday home stands out. Firstly, the pool is large with a size of less than 32 m2, and secondly, the view is indescribable good, because the pool is equal to the edge of the tray. There has been put a fence for safety reasons. In addition, there are sun beds for all guests in the house. Right next to the pool there is a covered terrace, which probably will be the meeting point of the holiday. There is also another terrace with direct access to the kitchen. Here you can enjoy the homemade food during the long and warm Catalan evenings.

There are 6 bedrooms in El Monasterío. These are spread over 4 double rooms and 2 triple rooms. General for all the rooms is that they have a classic design and high ceilings. 4 of the rooms have en suite bathroom, while the two others share one. The triple rooms are perfect for groups of children.

The well-equipped and beautiful kitchen is located on the first floor. It has among others a microwave, a dishwasher, a oven and much more. It is even possible to book a private chef one evening - it is strongly recommended. Connected to the kitchen there is a large and classic Catalan long table, where you can enjoy the food. In the same room there is a small sitting area with soft couches.

On the ground floor there is for the children and playful adults a room with table football and table tennis. There is also a cozy corner with beautiful old-style furniture.

Catalonia - culture and landscape: Geographically and culturally, the splendour of Catalonia is so unique. It has a vast diversity of landscapes ranging from rocky coastlines to long flat beaches, from mountains to plains, and from marshlands to forest. It has great cosmopolitan cities such as the amazing Barcelona with its fantastic art nouveau buildings, or the historical Gerona and its great old Jewish quarter. It has small medieval mountain villages sitting at the foot of the Pyrenees and elegant coastal resorts in the sandy shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

Catalonia 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.

Situated in the middle of Catalonia, it is easy to visit most of it in half- or full days excursions as variety to the relaxation in the house and by the pool.
