MODERN MANSION IN THE HISTORIC CENTRE OF THE MEDIEVAL TOWN BESALÚ

Besalu Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Mansion with 12 double bedrooms with bathrooms, 26 people, pool, lift

Recently restored, this exclusive property has been converted into a unique space for tourist groups, business meetings, intimate family celebrations … Ideal rental for all those interested in a peaceful and quiet place, while still having all the mod cons in a privileged area.

It is located in the heart of a historic medieval town and the Jewish quarter, on the mound where the ancient castle of Counts of Besalú stood and around which the people of Roman times articulated their lives.

In its gardens there are the remains of an X century rampart, the apse of the Romanesque, collegiate church of Santa Maria, XII century, and the rest of the ramparts from the same era.

Spanish: Situated in lower Garrotxa, straddling the regions of Pla de l’Estany and Alt Empordà, Besalú enjoys a privileged geographic location: +45 km. from the Pirineo Catalán ski slopes (Vallter, La Molina) and the best Costa Brava beaches (Rosas, Cadaqués...); +25 km. from Olot volcano area, as well as a few minutes from the prestigious golf courses (Torremirona, Perelada...); +25 km. from the Figueres and the Dali museum; +12 km. from the Banyoles lake, home of the Regata World Championships and the Olympic Games.

Historic heritage less than a 5 min walk away: Besalú is basically a medieval village. It was the capital of Besalú County (c. IX – c. XII) and welcomed an important Jewish community (c. IX – c. XV). A set of monuments are concentrated in a small space to bring out their former glory: the romantic bridge (c. XI); the romantic churches of San Pedro (c. X), San Vicente (c. X), Santa Maria (c. XII) and San Julián (c. XII); Jewish baths (Mikwe), the only ones in Spain (c. XII – c. XIII); Remains of the ramparts; Casa Llaudes (Romanesque civil); casa de la calle Tallaferro (Gothic style); Plaza Mayor Porticada...

Casa Marcial historic building: Casa Marcial has two buildings. The first one is catalogued and is of the late c. XIX and the early XX. It is in neo-classic style and notable for its facade and the 'alcoves' inside. The second building, with a new floor, is built on the remains of a medieval noble house from the first half of the c. XVII.

It is located in the heart of the historic medieval town and the Jewish quarter, on the mound where the ancient castle of Counts of Besalú stood and around which the people of Roman times articulated their lives.

In its gardens there are the remains of an X Century rampart, the apse of the Romanesque, collegiate church of Santa Maria, c. XII, and the rest of the ramparts, from the same era.

Best Vacation experience

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 28, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We just got home last week and I wanted to thank you for sharing your home with us and making our vacation so wonderful by letting us have such a great place to call "home" for 1 weeks.

Location, location, location. Besalu was everything we hoped for and more. The house is located in the most beautiful area in the most beautiful town. Walking out of the door into the medieval type of street where all you need is within a short most amazing walk away is an experience I will never forget.
The area is full of attractions for a perfect family vacation, the house is full with information that was available for us to plan a great family vacation.

The house itself is equipped with all we needed, best kitchen, large rooms, large garden with BBQ and a swimming pool. The kids had a blast.

Above all, the owners. Since day one that I have started to discuss with them they were very responsive and did their best to make our stay pleasant. They answered to every request we had, helped whenever needed. I never visited a house that was so equiped, so welcoming by the owner and on arrival they even made a welcome cake for us.

The only down side was that we had to leave after just one week.

I recommend this place to everyone and if I could add more start to the 5 available I would
Owner's Response: Thanks to Amir for his generous review. We want the villa to be a place of rest and tranquility, an experience unique for our customers. And that the families feel in their own home with the same amenities. The privileged place of Casa Marcial help us in this purpose.
