Montseny Natural Park and Viladrau, Catalonia, Spain

Catalonia lies in the north east corner of Spain dominated by the port city of Barcelona. Montseny Natural Park is sandwiched between this city, the Pyrenees border with France and the Mediterranean coast. Montseny is a 72,000 acre mosaic of Mediterranean, Alpine and Central European landscapes and so is a synthesis of the main landscapes of Europe. It has an incredible variety of flora and fauna boasting over 1500 superior plant species (the whole of the UK has only 1200!). The range is so wide that in 1978 it was made a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve confirming its importance on a global scale.

With the highest mountains south of the Pyrenees, Montseny offers breathtaking beauty combining rocky slopes with waterfalls cascading into deep gorges, dense with forests of Holm Oak, Beech, Chestnut and Pine. The scenery can change from Mediterranean woods to those of Central Europe within a few kilometres.

In addition to the protected natural landscape, one can visit the famous Iberian wall at El Brull, or the Roman villa of Can Tarrés, the extraordinary castles of Montsoriu and Montclús from the middle ages, the Romanesque monuments of Sant Salvador de Breda and Santa Magdalena, and the beautiful Modernist architecture in the villages of La Garriga and Viladrau.

The extraordinary quality of its landscapes, the diversity of its plant life, and the spectacular seasonal colour changes, especially in the chestnut, oak and beech woods make Montseny an ideal place for walking and cycling routes. There is an extensive network of well sign-posted routes to suit all abilities and tastes.

Little known outside of Spain, Montseny has inspired artists, intellectuals and scientists. Even the Spanish royal family enjoy this special place at their summer home in Viladrau - a village located, on the northern face of the Montseny mountain range, famous for its tranquillity, spring water and healthy air. Full of surprises, Viladrau is surrounded by forests and mountains, yet can offer top quality golf at nearby Montanya Golf club and even Polo just outside the village.

The attractions of Montseny and its proximity to the cities of Barcelona and Girona mean that visitors to the region can feast on the best that Catalan cuisine can offer. Of Roman origin, Catalan cooking uses many of the same ingredients as other Mediterranean cuisines -- tomatoes, eggplant, garlic, beans, pasta, fruits and all kinds of meat and seafood - but it combines them in unexpected ways. Who would expect salt cod with honey, for example? Catalonia has both mountains and seashore. So one may find spiny lobster stew (Civet de Llogosta) on the one hand and Andorran-style trout (Truita de Riu Andorrana) on the other. Whilst a three course lunch with wine cad be had in Viladrau village square for 8 euros, try the wonderful ‘tasting menu’ (five courses including wine, 25 euros) at La Salvadore restaurant in Hotel Corominas, Viladrau or the top-notch Mas D’Orsor just outside the village (around 50 euros per head).

This welcoming area is an ideal place for enjoying the riches which nature and history have left to the friendly hospitable locals and lucky visitors!

Stunning

5 of 5
This house is beautiful. The conversion is sympathetic but very modern and comfortable. The views are amazing and great outdoor space. The town is quaint but has some nice shops and a good restaurant all within a short walk from the house. It is well located for exploring the region. David was a great host. We experienced significant delays in our journey but he was still happy to welcome us at the house late at night. He also responded very quickly to a couple of queries we had during our stay. My only comment would be that the house may not be suitable for young children but I think that is obvious from the photos. In saying that we have a two year old and it was fine as long as we supervised him on stairs and in garden. This wouldn’t put me off returning as the standard of the house and this location by far outweigh this small issue. I would highly recommend this house.

Beautiful villa in a lovely quiet location

5 of 5
Villa Teresa is absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and had all the amenities needed for a two week holiday. The bottle of wine, water and soft drink in the fridge on arrival was a pleasant surprise and gratefully received. Francesca is a wonderful host and was always on hand with Cesca (great English translator) to help with any questions (i.e. parking in Barcelona etc). The pool was fantastic and the area very peaceful. Arbucies is a lovely village with local walks/bike routes but also very accessible to the main route to Girona/Barcelona. We loved all the different seating areas in the garden and sitting on the balcony with a glass of wine in the evening. Perfect in every way and we look forward to returning.
