Overview

About the property

Villa in The, Catalonia, Spain

Description:

If your dream is to stay in

a privately situated holiday home

with a

mountain view

and

green surroundings,

Casa Dañadas

is the perfect choice.

Situated in

900 meters of altitude

in the mountains between Berga and Ripoll, you find a house of very high standard and with so

many facilities

that you do not want to leave the house.

The house is excellent for a stay with family or friends, where you want to

enjoy your holiday together by the swimming pool,

at the big terrace

making a barbecue,

or

competing in

table tennis, table football, or billiards

. Still, the house and the property is spacious, so it is easy to find a place

for individual relaxation

.

The surroundings are stunning and there are

many walks

, for instance to a small waterfall, where you can have a swim in the stream. If you want a meal of Catalan food, the owners’

restaurant is 3 km. away

and serves very nice local food. If you want

fresh bread

, there is a house about 5 km. away making bread, so you can buy every day if you want.

The house is constructed on a hillside, and the fenced pool area is situated above the house, to benefit maximum from the

stunning view

. Attached to the house, there is a

covered terrace with barbecue

, and above the terrace, the game area.

When you enter the ground floor of the house, you find a beautifully reformed holiday home with a

lot of atmosphere

from the

stonewalls

and

the heavy ceiling planks

. The furniture is modern, and there is a large

sofa corner with TV and DVD

and in connection the large

dining room with a long dining table

and the modern and

very well equipped kitchen

with dishwasher, oven, ceramic hotplates, fridge, freezer, microwave and much more. Also in the ground floor, there is a double room and a bathroom adapted for disabled, and a triple room.

On the first floor

, there is an extra kitchen with dining area and another living room with TV. There are 3 double/triple rooms and two bathrooms.

On the second floor,

you find the remaining two double/triple rooms each with bathroom en suite.

The house is very flexible

, as all rooms except one in the ground floor can be made into triple rooms, or even 4-bedrooms.

From the first floor of the house, the back side is in level with the space below the pool area. Here, there is a

very nice playground

for children floored with rubber with swings and a slide. There is a path with no steps up to the pool area. The

swimming pool

(8,5 x 4,5 meters)

is very nice for small children, as it

has roman steps

, and the first step has been made wider, so small children can sit there. In the summer, the pool area is equipped with

sun loungers and parasols

and there is a

shower

.

For shopping,

besides the above-mentioned bakery, you can also buy basic things like milk, meats and cheese in the restaurant of the owners, 3 km. away. The nearest big town is Ripoll about 20 minutes drive away. It is a cozy and lively town, situated where the Freser river and the Ter river merge. Here you find restaurants and bigger supermarkets. In addition, there are trains to Barcelona, which is a beautiful trip by train. Faster, however, is the new motorway, making it possible to get to Barcelona in 1.5-2 hours.

Description of the region :

The Catalan Pyrenees in North of Spain Constitute a formidable mountain range. Far below peaks of stark magnificence wind beautiful valleys, and the lower ranges and plains offer up all manner of natural wonders. The range's verity is remarkable. While the north western corner, especially the Val d`Aran, is astonishingly green and could easily be mistaken for Alpine scenes in Austria, the vistas become distinctly barren and forbidding further west. Water seems to burble forth across the range as if from nowhere; even after rainless summer, mountain streams and brooks maintain their animated passage. It is no wonder that The Catalan Pyrenees (Pirineos Catalanes) are given 3 stars by Guide Michelin (Highly recommended) as the natural beauty is stunning. Discover authentic towns and villages with an ancient past behind them (Puigcerdá, Solsona, Berga, Olost, etc.) The area also offer delicious regional cuisine and provide countless opportunities for leisure and sporting activities: skiing, hunting, fishing, mountain climbing and adventure sport such as white-water rafting.

If you have time to sample only one area of the the Cataln Pyrenees,

make the

Parc Nacional d `Aigüestortes i Estany de Sant Maurici

, an area of jewel-like lakes and dramatic peeks. Walks will take you through a stunning varity of landscapes, from dense forest to bare, snow-covered mountain ridges, past glacial lakes and up to some fine peaks of almost 3000 m. Other walks offer rushing streams, dramatic waterfalls and grassy plains.

You might also want to explore the volcanic zone

Parc Natural de la zona volcânica de la Carrotxa. The park surrounds the

village Olot on all sides, but the most interesting area is between Olot, and the village of Santa Pau, 10 km. southeast. There are about 30 volcanic cones in the park, stretching up to 160m high and 1, 5 km. wide. You can undertake many pleasant walks among the long-extinct volcanoes of this park. Choose between strolls of a few hours and longer walks. As communication between the villages used to be extremely difficult as the mountains are deeply cut across by side valleys, the regions (arán, Ribagorca, Pallars, Alt Urgell, Cerdany, Ripollés Garrotxa ans Empordán) have developed separately, from each other, acquiring their own individuality, personality and traditions. This applies more particular to local art, especially during the Romanesque period.
