Pals Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 1 half bath sleeps 11
“Mas Saline” is a wonderful stone farmhouse set right in the middle of nature, close to Girona and Barcelona, but in a different world altogether. Located in the heart of the Costa Brava, in a privileged place 5 min to Pals golden sand beaches. The property is a paradise for families with children. Peacefully secluded between the fields and connected to the world by a farm road surrounded by apple and sunflower fields. The house, totally renovated in 2005 is right in the middle of a property of 5 hectares of land in full production of Golden Apples, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and alfalfa that is used to feed the family of horses and ponies that are living in the estate. The house is on two levels and is a perfect example of tasteful, rural elegance.
A Mediterranean vegetable garden maintained by our gardener, provides fresh vegetables at hand for self-consumption or to offer to friends, what can be better than saying to a guest 'We are sure that it's fresh because we just picked it from the vegetable garden
Functional and tasteful: The entire house is decorated with a functional yet cool taste, meant to give people all what's needed to have a luxurious and comfortable stay. Large 650 sq foot kitchen area, fully equipped with generous working space for gastronomy lovers. Thick teak 250cm dining table with 12 chairs flanked by a big fireplace with a restored original stone bread oven. All bedrooms have good beds and impressive views of all the Emporda plain and the Castle of Montgri. Bathrooms are complete and the 3 livings are very comfortable. Charming and cozy room with TV and game console. Spacious office with WiFi broadband connection. Old stone walled stable and porched patio, which is perfect for intimate lunches al fresco, and romantic candle light diners. Thanks to the stone walls, the house is fresh in summer, and very comfortable in our temperate winters. Equipped with double glass windows and modern central heating system for winter season.
Spring time is explosive in our property; nature begins to flow in torrents. Birds nesting and crops growing. Wonderful sky light and crystal clear atmosphere. Landscape is just green.
Summer: Our Mediterranean orchard is in full production: potatoes, tomatoes, onions, carrots and lettuce, eggplants, red and green peppers, melon, watermelon, beans, peas, mint. Plums, apricot and peaches...
Apple harvest season: starting early september, harvesters enter the estate to collect more than 100 tm of fresh and juicy Golden Apples. Really worth to be around during these dates to get some… an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
Olive harvest season: from october to december we work on the Extra Virgin Olive harvesting and we produce our own Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Imperative to visit during these dates to get some bottles of this unique Extra Virgin Oil, to take home.
Winter season: life in our property is so peaceful and enriching for the soul. 3 large fireplaces, and tons of the best wood stored in the old stable, are ready for your calm evenings of reading, family meeting and relax.
Activities: Winter and Spring are the best seasons to practice horseback riding and cycling in our property. The weather is fresh but the Mediterranean sun shines almost every day. During winter/spring, horses love to gallop across the farm roads which lead to small medieval villages. The best reward before going back home is a long gallop across the dunes of Pals beach, which are 10 km long.
The Golf lovers will like to hear that the prestigious “Emporda Golf Resort” (18 links / 18 forests), and the “Pitch and Putt Gualta”, both are at a mere 3 min distance from the property across the farm road.
Diving and Water sports in the 'Medas Islands' diving resort, in Estartit, 10 min away by car.
Cool nightlife with fashionable places in almost every small village in the area. One of the coolest open air nightclub/restaurants in south Europe: the “Mas Sorrer Jazz Bar” is located in the other end of the farm road.
