Overview

About the property

Villa in Plana, Catalonia, Spain

Description:

El Casa Grande

is a typical house of the kind that made us fall in love with Catalonia and the way of making holiday. It is a house for

14+2 persons with a beautiful garden and pool area

.

It is a house with

a long history

, historically being in a privileged location in the intersection of three paths of transhumance and what was the old road in the county. The building is very old and the first dating that has a thirteenth century. In the beginning was used as a hostel for merchants passing. From the fourteenth century until 1728, it was used for its board of jurors in the Lluçanés-province.

Today the house has been

completely restored

retaining its original structure. Built on a sliding rock, the entrance from the parking will actually bring you directly into first floor. Here, there is a kitchen with all commodities (stove, microwave, dishwasher, kitchen utensils etc.), a very big living/dining room with an enormous wooden dining table and also serving as distributing room for all the bedrooms. The house has in total

6 bedrooms

, 2 of them being triple rooms.

Each of the bedrooms has their own bathroom

. Additionally, there is a toilet downstairs, useful when staying outside. The house has also

TV, DVD

and

WIFI-internet

.

Connected by a stairway, the ground floor, in level with the closed court yard and the garden, has also a game room with

table tennis

. Outside, you enter directly the very big closed courtyard, with plenty of room for the children to play or play ball. Also, there is a covered

porch with barbecue

and outdoor seating for every one and a

sitting area

with more comfortable arm chairs.

The impressive gate, big enough in old times for the horse carriages to enter, provides access to the

beautiful garden- and pool area

. In one end, the lawn with some trees proving shade. Also, there is a

sandbox and swings

for the youngest, and some tables, for light meals. In the other end, the

swimming pool with roman steps

, this is actually very nice, when you have small children in your group. With a cold drink and a book and with the beautiful view over the hilly landscape with fields and forest, the tranquillity and sounds make the last remains of the stressful daily life disappear.

In walking distance from the house, there is a local restaurant

, with a nice and inexpensive lunch menu. In the next village, 5 km. away, you find a very good bakery, and in the nearest town Olost 6 km. away, there is a very nice Cathedral, some shops and even a Michelin-star restaurant. 800 meters from the house, there is a pond for fishing. By the recently upgraded C-154 road, you will have the beautiful

regional capitol Vic

with two weekly market days (Tuesdays and Saturdays) on 20 minutes away.

Market in Vic

Another option is to enjoy the delicious cuisine or to take a guided tour through the historical quarter. On the central square you will find many shops and café terraces. The square is always full of genuine Catalan rural atmosphere.

In Vic you can enjoy: Museu Episcopal, which displays a rich collection of Romanesque art. The Gallery Sala del Romanico has a outstanding group of alter fonts and The Gothic Gallerie Salas del Gotico`s collection of alter pieces are also impressive.
