“Mas Saline” is a wonderful stone farmhouse set right in the middle of nature in Gualta, 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.

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 brightly green.
Summer: High season. Our area is in full action: unlimited experiences to discover on the beach or in the medieval villages of the interior, water sports, sunbathing, sailing, playing golf, horseback riding, relaxing in the swimming pool, reading in our quiet endless garden, living a relaxed farm live while enjoying the total privacy of our property, hiking, sightseeing, gastronomy, slow food, organic products, day trips to beautiful Girona or to vibrant artistic Barcelona.....
Apple harvest season: starting early in september, the 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!
"Extra Virgin Olive Oil" harvest season: Held during one week, variable from late october to early december. The Olive harvesting is a unique experience to live if you visit us during these dates!.
Winter season: life in our property is so peaceful and enriching for the soul. 3 large fireplaces, and the best wood stored, are ready for your calm evenings of reading and relax.
Activities: Winter and Spring are the best seasons to practice horseback riding and cycling in our property. The Mediterranean sun shines almost every day. During winter/spring, horses love to gallop across the farm roads leading to medieval villages. The best reward before going back home is a long gallop along the dunes of Pals beach.
Golf lovers will love to hear that the prestigious “Emporda Golf Resort” (18 links / 18 forests), and the “Par 3 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. Two of the coolest open air nightclub/restaurants in Costa Brava: the “Mas Sorrer Jazz Bar” and the "Aerodrom Club" are located just 3 minutes drive.
