If a superb country house set in beautiful tranquil surroundings is your idea of heaven then this property is the one for you. Tucked right beneath a castle in the tiny hamlet of Foixa, this masia is built entirely from natural stone with some parts dating back to the 13th century. Lovingly restored by the current owners over many years, the house is decorated and styled in keeping with its traditional Catalan heritage with beautiful landscaped gardens, terraces and walkways on many different levels, and a large private swimming pool. The setting is breathtaking in its natural beauty and the small hamlet of Foixa is truly picturesque with a traditional restaurant and small general store just a few minutes walk from the house. A 20 minute drive will bring you to the hustle and bustle of the coastal towns of L™ Estartit and L™Escala with their golden sandy beaches, great shopping and countless outdoor activities. The beautiful city of Girona is accessible in less than 30 minutes, offering some of the best shopping and restaurants in Catalonia, and more locally you will find the charming local towns of La Pera and Pubol with numerous restaurants and the castle of Gala Dali, open to the public, and well worth a visit.The house itself is set on a gentle hillside with a large private parking area to the rear. The big wooden front door opens into an impressive vaulted entrance hallway leading off to the terrace overlooking the attractive gardens and of course the large private pool with lots of space to relax in the sun. On this ground floor is a twin en-suite bedroom and a large bodega with fridge and ping pong table. Stairs lead from the entrance up to the main floor of the house which comprises a large living/dining area with full length terrace and generous traditional kitchen with its own breakfast bar and dining table. There are two double bedrooms on this level, one with terrace access, plus a family bathroom. An open staircase leads from the salon to the uppermost level where there is a large light and airy bedroom with 3 single beds. Whilst a wonderful place for a great family holiday, due to the traditional styling of some terraces and staircases, this house would mean that very young children would need lots of supervision.Rooms & Beds :Living roomMixed Living/Dining roomKitchenBathrooms: 2Independent toilets: 1Bedrooms: 4Single beds: 5Spanish double bed (min. 135 cm): 2Older furnitureRustic furnitureGeneral information :Capacity / Persons: 9CH Category: 4Distance to the beach (meters): 17000Private swimmingpoolSwimmingpool size: 8 x 4 mOther view: campoYear of construction: 1300Year of last renovation: 1990M2: 500Plot size - m2: 1000GardenTerracePets are not allowedYouth groups are not acceptedParking on the plotCar is a necessityEquipment :TVDVDWashing machineDishwasherHotplates: 4OvenMicrowave ovenRefrigerator COMBICooker hoodCoffee brewerWater boiler / JugToasterVacuum cleanerIronIroning boardBBQGarden furnitureActivities :Golf - 18 holesGolf - 9 holesPitch & Put (par 3)GastronomyWellnessTennisYachtingDivingFishingMountain bikeServices (upon request) :Baby chair (EUR per chair/night): 2Baby cot (EUR per cot/night): 3Additional cleaning serviceTable reservation / Michelin restaurantsGolf - Tee time reservationLocation / Distances (Km) :Town: FoixaBarcelona - City centre: 123Barcelona airport: 136Girona - City centre: 22Girona airport: 37Perpignan Airport (France): 95Reus airport: 220Figueres - City centre: 33French border (La Jonquera): 58Train station: 5Train - Duration to Barcelona (minutes): 90Ferry terminal: 124F1 - Montmelo: 100Nearest hospital: 20Nearest town: 5Sand Beach: 17Nearest supermarket: 5Nearest restaurant: 0.8Night life: 17Bus - Duration to Barcelona (minutes): 180Additional expenses :Bed linen (EUR per person): INCL.Towels (EUR per unit): INCL.Deposit (refundable): 400 EURFinal cleaning (compulsory): 140 EURElectricity (EUR per Kwh): Incl.Gas (EUR per m3): Incl.Water (EUR per day): Incl.Tourist tax (EUR per person>16/night): 0,50 (max. 7 nights)Some villa facilities may be optional and carry an additional charge such as cots, high chairs or air conditioning.Booking Fee 19 eurosLate arrival fee 35 euros 19.00 - 22.00Please note that due to an increase in tourist taxes for the Catalunya region.

We certainly enjoyed our vacation in this nice and well equipped villa. Plenty of room for two families. Fantastic view to the ocean, mountains, vineyards and nearby villages. Our 4 teenage daughters enjoyed well functioning WIFI (!), the great pool and spacious terrace, living room and kitchen. It was high quality time to enjoy evenings on the terrace with BBQ and local wine!! Thank you Lise and staff for a very nice communication with us.
