Overview

About the property

Villa in Solsona, Catalonia, Spain

Description:

Mas Baron de Abilla

is an ideal house if you appreciate

high quality of living inside and undisturbed panoramic view from the large private garden

without neighbors. It is almost surprising that the distance from this peaceful spot is less than 2 km. from the centre of the lively village of Cardona, with the most beautiful antique town centre and a very nice square with restaurants and bars.

Pilar and her husband have taken care of every detail to offer visitors an authentic atmosphere, boldly combining rustic and modern elements, and at the same time creating a quiet and cozy atmosphere in which to enjoy the house and its surroundings.

On the ground floor you will find the

large open kitchen

, the living room and bedroom. The kitchen is equipped with all appliances including hob, oven, microwave, 2 dishwashers, washing machine, 2 fridges & freezers, plus blender, toaster, juicer and all household items to prepare meals comfortably.

The large windows in the dining room

admit you to admire the views of the Catalan Pyrenees, the sunrise and sunset, while you can enjoy meals and long conversations. Especially in the off-season, this is much appreciated by our guests.

The living room has

a fireplace, LCD TV with satellite dish, computer with Internet access via ADSL, PS2 and WIFI zone.

There are four rooms

that make up a maximum of 8 adults plus 3 children. Downstairs, you find one bedroom (adapted for disabled) with bathroom with shower en suite. At the first floor are the other three bedrooms. All are spacious and bright and

each has its own bathroom

with tub. In each room you find satellite LCD TV , hairdryer, bed linens and towels.

Outside is a summer dining room, under the porch. In the garden is the pool which is covered and heated in winter and in summer with the cover removed. The stone built barbecue enable you to fry some of the local steaks and other meat products - try for instance their “butifarras”, Catalan sausage of very high quality or perhaps some lamb chops.

We must say that you can hardly find a better place to spend you Catalan holiday. If you can drag yourself away from the house, the area is well commuted via the C-55 road to Manresa and from here you can continue by C-55 to visit Montserrrat , take the C-16 motorway to visit Barcelona or C27/C-15 down to the beaches near Sitges.

In the local area, there are many outdoor activities, and Pilar has prepared a very useful booklet with information about the many things to do.

Description of the region :

The area

El Solsonés is a region of the Pre-Pyrenees. The landscape is a contrasting mixture of forest, fields, villages and areas with wild nature, typically steep cliffs and mountains. The area is divided into 15 smaller areas, of which only six are real villages. The area consists mainly of scattered farms, of which some are excellent examples of Catalan rural architecture mostly from the 18 century, but some even back to 15 century. For the same reason El Solsonés has been called: The country of thousand farms. The area has ample opportunity for large nature, sports and cultural experiences. It is a landscape that has evolved over centuries with a very particular balance between nature and urban use. The town of Solsona has a population of 8000 on a total area of 18 km2 and as the rest of the region can easily keep its primary trademarks. Here you can enjoy an elevated tranquility in the middle of a very rich historical and cultural environment.

The Carnival in Solsona.

The Carnival, which is held in February each year, and continues through a two week period, is one of the greatest events in Solsona and a carnival famous throughout Spain. Not least because of the dancing giants! On this link:

you can see the giant owl from 2008 dancing. The giants are part of a long cultural history which has been maintained in Solsona, and really flares up during the yearly carnival.

The cathedral in Solsona.

The cathedral is, and not without reason, the most famous edifice in Sosona. It has become an emblem of the city. What today is called "the cathedral" is a complex mix of different buildings of which some are built in the period from 11. - 18.century. The current cathedral is a Gothic cathedral, which was built between 1299 and 1630. To the left of the picture below, you see the old village church, an intimate little church which, among others contain a unique altarpiece in the Baroque style. To the right in the picture is the Chapel of Claustre, the current cathedral, which was built in honour of the city's guardian angel.
