HUGE & VERY COMFORTABLE VILLA FOR UP TO 20 GUESTS, WITH POOL, JACUZZI, SAUNA

Fornells de la Selva Villa Rental Photos and Description

With 9 en suite rooms, a gorgeous house and garden, 15 km to beach, 1 km to town

Casa Fornells is an independent traditional Catalan farmhouse masia (500m2 building with a 6,000m2 private landscaped garden) with 9 bedrooms, each with private bathroom, and a private fenced-in 12x6 meter pool set in a gorgeous garden with spa area, including sauna and jacuzzi. Setting this house way apart from others in terms of price-quality are the following: a beautiful garden surrounded by tall cypress trees with several attractive vine and flower covered pergolas for shaded 'al fresco' meals around the permanent outdoor BBQ; plenty of different sitting areas outdoors and indoors, including a dining room seating well over 20 guests. The location is also notable, in an idyllic rural setting only a 10 minute walk from Fornells town with shopping & restaurants and on the commuter train route, 70 minutes to Barcelona, 8 km to Girona, and 15 km to beaches. In many ways, hard to beat!

Casa Fornells is set in a nice green rural area of beautiful old stone houses and right next to a small pitch and putt golf course, so the wide views of distant mountain ranges around the house are unobstructed. Outside there are a couple of large pergolas made of thick tree trunks overgrown with climbing vines offering shade for outdoor meals near the BBQ, and another covered wooden-beamed veranda just outside the living room. This is a house that invites you to spend a lot of time out of doors. The front doors open onto a central hallway which distributes traffic throughout the house. On the left is the computer and reading room with PC, WiFi and a couple of lounge chairs under a reading lamp. Across the hall is another small dining or sitting room which seats up to 6 at a round table, perfect for card games. Beyond on your right is the large and well equipped kitchen

And conveniently next to the kitchen is the large banquet-style dining room, seating 25, with lots of windows and a wide door directly to the garden - see photo. This is a great room for meals, day and night!

Separating the kitchen from the large living room is the wide stairway heading upstairs, and beside that, the downstairs bedroom with king-size double bed and private full bathroom, and a door permitting private direct access to the garden. Then you have a pantry on the left, with the large second refrigerator and the washing machine and hand wash sink and some extra shelving. Just down four steps the large 70m2 main living room, with fireplace, TV, stereo, lots of different seating areas, card tables, etc., and direct access to the covered terrace between the house and the pool. There are lots of potted plants and flowers everywhere, inside the house and in the extraordinary garden.

The owners of this house also own the areas largest greenhouse and garden centre.

The 1st floor is split into two levels with a total of 7 bedrooms, each with private bath. Three steps separate the two wings: one wing, set around a large central room with a small table and chairs, has five rooms in total, 4 rooms with king-size double beds and 1 room with two single beds. The other wing has two rooms, one with double bed and the other with two single beds, each with private

On the top floor there is a large suite with a private anteroom with a TV and sofa and chairs. This top floor measures about 70m2, with old fashioned tile floors under old wooden ceiling beams. The views from up here are great. Ah, another nice thing: all the windows have mosquito nets and wooden shutter that keep out the light for sleeping in late.

This house has been on the rental market since 2003 and it always fills up very nicely from about mid-May to mid-October. We have lots and lots of testimonials we´d be happy to send you. These are emails that guests send in after rentals.

THIS FARMHOUSE IS SUPERB FOR GROUPS AND FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this masia early July 2010. The owners are really friendly and Charlie who organises the lets is really helpful too.

I visited with friends, so we were 6 adults and 6 children and the place very big for us, but plenty of space to stretch out.

The quality of the lodging is good, it is no 5*penthouse apartment, but it has all the right fixtures and fittings to a good quality, plentiful towels and nice bed linen, everything you could possibly need is there.

The kitchen is well equipped for kids (lots of plastic plates and cups) and adults (lots of wine and beer glasses), from juicers to small blenders to numerous pots and pans and enough to feed I'd say 20+.

The outside areas are great.
- a large lawn area for kids playing
- a pergola area where you can put the trestle table/s for outdoor eating for lunch and evenings
- a BBQ for real wood (free) and charcoal
- a pool area that is great - large pool with easy steps in, good for kids
- finally, there is the spa area - a hot tub, lounge chairs and sauna. We barely used it as it was peak summer, but I'd imagine it would be great in cooler weather - this is new, so the plants etc. aren't so well established

We had a ball here. Great for kids (though lots of stairs for my 13 month old, but it was manageable), great for groups large or small.

Fornells de la Selva, is a small village with a lovely church in an excellent location, 8 km south east of Girona city, just off the north-south N-II motorway and the AP-7 toll road from France to Barcelona. The house is near to the C-65 road east to the beach resorts, 12 km away. So this house is very centrally situated and near all the major Costa Brava attractions. The house is 900 meters walk from village centre, with a good selection of shops, restaurants, and even a good caterer that sells prepared meals. Best of all, there is a commuter train station here on the Barcelona-Portbou line with frequent trains to Barcelona (1 hour), Girona, Figueres, and the coast resorts of the northern and southern Costa Brava beaches. The area around the house is very quiet and with nice views of the distance Pyrenees. Next door to the house there is a Pitch and Putt golf course.
