Spacious and well equipped, our six bedroomed house is located in a residential zone on the edge of Santa Maria de Palautordera, only 4km from the Monseny Nature Reserve (a stunning area at any time of the year). With a private pool (15m in length) and two beautiful garden areas, this villa is ideal for large family groups. Extremely peaceful with beautiful views, the house has both an outdoor BBQ and dining area. Perfectly situated for both rural and cultural tourism. The nearest beach is just 20 minutes drive away, but there are also direct trains to Barcelona, Girona and Figueres (for museums, monuments, shopping and cultural events).
The swimming pool is 15 meters in length, with shallow and deep ends. The 100.000 litres of water it holds come from a natural spring on the premises. The pool has a self cleaning system and is manually cleaned once a week by our maintenance staff. The pool is situated in the lower garden. There is safety gate at the top of the stairs to prevent children wandering down to the pool alone. The lower garden and pool area are spaces with almost total privacy. There are 6 sunbeds by the pool, also a table and chairs and a ping pong table (bats and balls not provided).
At the end of the road there is a children’s play area. There are swings and slides for toddlers and a football/basketball pitch for older kids. Walking towards the village, just 5 minutes away, there is a public squash court that you can use free of charge.
The village also has a private tennis club and gym (Font Martina) and a horse riding centre (Ca L’Alzina). You can hire bikes in St Celoni (Daema Aventura).
Santa Maria de Palautordera offers a selection of shops, supermarkets, bakers, bars and restaurants. There are also banks, printers, taxi,dentist and doctors services, and two pharmacies. On Saturday mornings (from 8am until 1pm) there is a farmers market in the village centre. A larger market, offering fresh food and cheap clothing, is held on Wednesday mornings in St. Celoni.
The immediate neighborhood is extremely peaceful, the only cars that enter the area belong to the local residents. With the occasional exception, noise levels between 00:00 hours and 09:00 are low. Therefore this is an ideal home for people wanting tranquil nights and not recommendable for those inclined to night time revelry.
Please note that the Catalan Government now charges a tourist tax for people 17 years and over. This tax (2017-2018) is 0.90 euros per person per day for a maximum of 7 days (if you stay longer you will not be charged from the 8th day onwards). We will collect this tax from you in cash on your arrival.
Also note that the lower garden and pool area are closed to guests between October and May.
