Can Mademon is a stone country house (masia) that has been restored and furnished to live all year round, a very comfortable house. A real home from home with newly installed air conditioning in all upstairs rooms.
Interior floors are all wooden and the installations are all superior quality that one would expect for year round living. All the bedrooms are at least doubles with windows to outside. Downstairs the bedrooms boast stone arch ceilings which means they are lovely and cool in the hot summer months. There are 2 bathrooms, one serving downstairs with a wet room shower installation. The bathroom serving upstairs has a bath and shower.
The huge and well equipped kitchen makes entertaining and food preparation a pleasure, a 5 ringed Bosch Gas large oven and central island, a whirlpool fridge which has an integral water filter and ice maker. Next to the kitchen is the breakfast room with woodburning stove and large farmhouse style table, here Patio doors lead out to a covered terrace a lovely place to eat in the morning or relax. Here you can watch the children in the pool.
Elsewhere on the ground floor there is a utility room with washing machine and dryer and an open dining area with dining table leading through an impressive stone arch to another seating area again with woodburing stove and a double height galley style room. Large glass doors open to yet another covered terrace with comfortable sofas for that essential afternoon siesta!! The of the exterior of the house boasts a kiln oven set in the side of the hill, this historical kiln is listed in a book of architectural interests in the area and is one of only 2 that survive, it is actually the reason the house exists.
The upstairs has a large wooden floor lounge with big comfy sofas, bookshelf, and television with apple tv and a pool table with windows overlooking the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains and the famous Canigo mountain.
Again all the bedrooms are very large and comfortable and if the shutters are kept closed in the daytime, keep cool enough to give a good nights sleep to any guest. The red bedroom is huge and its arched window overlooks the upstairs terrace and swimming pool below. The blue room is at the front and its arch window acts like a frame for the beautiful mountains and fields that are infront of the house. The white room has a door that leads on to the upstairs terrace. The house is set up to be a place that guests can enjoy without ever having to leave (but of course we recommend that you at least try and drag yourselves off to experience the wonderful things Catalunya has to offer!) There are always a selection of videos and books in the library.
The swimming pool is a proper tiled pool and is very large (size) meaning guests can if wish do some serious lengths and work off all those tapas! It has a rustic decking which has just been extended with an outside shower and beautiful shaded area to escape the hot summer sun in between dips and a newly built in bar-b-que area by the kitchen
Apart from swimming for the kids there is a pool table and table tennis and a table football. There is a lovely maintained garden and lawn surrounded by pine forest - they can climb up the small ledge and sit and drink in magnificent views of pyreeness and countryside. Or cross the quiet country road and follow the country paths down to river fluvial (a spot of fishing perhaps?) , If you get up early it is possible to see wild boar looking for roots in the forest, or follow the footpaths which under through miles of unspoilt land with the call of the birds and they many sounds of nature for company.
