About the property

6 BR villa, gorgeous garden, large pool, sauna, gym, great bbq area, wifi..charm

Villa Casadevall was built by a well-known local architect about 15 years ago. The layout is quite logical and easy to explain. The building itself consists of two one-storey wings flanking out from a central two-storey oval-shaped central hub. The long driveway up from remote-controlled gate through the private fenced and pine wooded property ends at the northeast part of the house and parking area, 5 cars outdoors, 2 cars in garage. The front of the house faces southwest, so the sitting areas and pool and garden get plenty of sunlight.

The north wing has five bedrooms: at the end of the hall:

• bedroom 1) an en suite bedroom with a 150x200cm bed, private full bathroom with a separate toilet room, and access directly to the garden/pool area

• bedroom 2) another en suite bedroom with 150x200cm bed and private full bathroom and also direct access to the pool area

• bedrooms 3) and 4) two bedrooms with 135x180cm bedroom facing the driveway side of the house

• bedroom 5) has a double bed (135x180cm) and bunk beds, so this room sleeps 4., and also has direct access to the pool area - see the photo where you see the babyfoot table just outside the room. • These bedrooms share a full bathroom with bathtub and a shower in the hallway.

On the south wing of the house there is:

• bedroom 6) with two single 90x180cm beds and the bathroom across the hall has a shower stall and the 4-man sauna. This bedroom might have originally been intended as the maid´s room as it is over on the kitchen side of the house and doesn´t have nice built-in closets like the other bedrooms, but it is a good room for kids and situated far away from the other rooms. I often taken this room for myself.

• upstairs there is a 40m2 office space/sitting room with two built-in sofas each with a single mattress, so two more guests can sleep up here, but there is no bathroom on this floor so groups of more than 14 often place these mattresses in the bedrooms below…

Beyond the kitchen there is a doorway to the gymnasium with weightlifting and static bicycles and other exercise equipment, and then the very large 2 or 3-car garage.

The split-level living room is bright, spacious and comfortable, set around a large fireplace on one side and TV on wheels on the other. There are two large white sofas and two large poufs and a card table an other assorted chairs, all behind large window panes offering lots of natural light and great views of the pool and pine forest. The lighting is especially nice at night time, with lots of halogen spotlights in the slanting ceiling as well as some free-standing lamps. There is also an old HIFI system that still works and a curiously eclectic collection of old cassettes that I really enjoyed exploring... from Brahms to Willie Nelson! The TV has local digital channels, many of them in original language, so you can always find something in English, and for the kids there are 4 24-hour kiddy channels, including Disney & Clan & Boing & the Catalan TV3 - all of which can be heard in Original Version but hitting the language button...

The kitchen area at Casadevall villa is divided into three rooms, the kitchen, a pantry, and a washroom: The kitchen, which measures about 20m2 or so, is relatively small for such a large house, but has a nice food prep island in the middle and a small table with seating for four. You´ll find the usual double sink, a 4 burner stovetop, oven and extractor, a normal sized dishwasher, a normal 1.8m sized fridge, microwave, toaster, stick mixer, electric drip coffee-maker, stick mixer, juicer, and tea kettle. We did most of our food prep outdoors, and most of our cooking at the bbq. In the pantry you´ll find a large top-loading freezer and plenty of shelving to store your shopping. In the washroom there is a washing machine, a sink for hand washing, and an iron and ironing board.

Taken all together, this makes for around 40 or 45m2 of kitchen space, so maybe I shouldn´t complain about the size of the kitchen, especially given the better than average covered BBQ dining area just outside. This is where most guests will happily enjoy most meals practically year-round, day and night, overlooking the pool and garden.

Undoubtedly the nicest part of the house is the pool and garden area, including a nice covered poolside porch with lots of wicker sofas and lounge chairs. The garden is above average, and the illuminated pool and garden lights at night makes for a very attractive ensemble. For off-season rentals the sauna indoors makes for a fun and somewhat exotic feature, especially for Spain...

Casadevall Villa gets a good thumbs up from me, for its excellent central location and in a private woods near town, (see the Google Earth shot in the carrousel presentation above), and for the very pleasant pool and garden area under pines. The house is also very well cared for by Miquel, the pleasant caretaker (who takes great care of the salt & chlorine pool cleaning) and even offers to bring you fresh breakfast bread and croissants and even fix breakfast for you if you like.

Why Charlie and Maria Williams chose Sils

What a wonderful garden and pool and BBQ area! Just perfect! Casadevall is a notable exception from the usual sort of rustic farmhouse property we normally offer. This is the modern 350 m2 house of a local architect, situated in a 10 hectare private fenced & wooded property, mostly Mediterranean pine and cork oak, a 10-minute walk outside of the town of Sils, 65 km north of Barcelona, a short to the commuter train (1h & €6 to Barcelona city center). Built some 18 years ago, this designer house has 6 bedrooms (2 en suite) and 4 bathrooms. along with a 4-person sauna and an exercise room with weights and nautilus machines. By far the most outstanding part of the villa is the garden, with its large triangular unfenced swimming pool, the lovely covered BBQ dining area just out from the kitchen, and the porch, with 4 outdoor sofas & chairs. It is one of the nicest outdoors of any of the houses I offer. A gorgeous private setting under the soothing shade of fragrant pines! Free Wi-Fi.

What makes this villa unique

Great outside space with nice garden under pines, big pool, covered BBQ and dining space, exercise room, 4-man Sauna, table tennis, football table, free WIFI ...

Guestbook comments from the manager

My friends and I stayed at this wonderful Villa this year and will definately be returning in 2015.

The accommodation is immaculate and the surroundings are very pretty and peaceful. The Villa has everything you could want, including a fantastic pool and outside area. It is set in it's own woodland so is very private. the guy who looks after the Villa is Miguel and to say he cannot do enough for you is an understatement, a truly good guy.

I would happily recommend this Villa to any and all.

Car: recommended

Location: this house a short walk outside of Sils, a town 20 km inland from Blanes and Lloret de Mar and the southern resorts of the Costa Brava. Getting there by car is easy as Sils town is just off the N-2 and AP-7 motorways, half an hour's drive from the French border to the north, and an hour's drive from Barcelona city to the south. If you don't feel like driving, you have the Sils train station a 1.2 km - that's about a 15 to 20 minute walk through fields and pine forest -

to get to the Sils train station. You could also just drive to the station and park there for free, and the commuter trains into Barcelona or up to Girona and the coast run twice an hour. Barcelona = €12 Euros round-trip. There are buses hourly buses to Lloret de Mar and the coast resorts... but part of the fun of staying at these lovely houses a little bit inland is that you get to explore the gorgeous countryside while going to and from the beaches. The area is similar to Tuscany, and many of the stone farmhouses you see dotting the countryside are exquisite.

Back to Sils train station: trains run from 7 am to 11 pm.

Sils village is very serviceable for its excellent location vis á vis the main sights & beaches, with plenty of shopping, 6 excellent restaurants, all of them with inexpensive 12 Euros prix fix menu at midday, and Sils town also has daily markets, PGA golf, municipal tennis for €5/hour, spas, etc.. Oh, the medical center is in the center of town, about a 20 to 25 minute walk from Casadevall villa, but just call the caretaker Miquel and he'll take you over . He lives in Sils and really cares for the guests at Casadevall!
