About the property

Villa in Plana, Catalonia, Spain


Las Casas del Arcos – Petit is a holiday home in very beautiful surroundings and with excellent common areas.

It is a perfect holiday home for the small family who wishes spacious outdoor area, a

lot of possibilities for activities

and likes to meet other children and families by the pool as the common ground is shared with two other holiday homes on the premises.

The greatest assets of Las Casas del Arcos are the good possibilities for activities.

The garden is large and ends in a little forest area, where you can walk or explore. The garden has

football goal, a small playing ground, a wonderful fenced swimming pool area with good furniture and in the far end of the garden is a small area with rabbits, goats and a peacock.

An area which most certainly will attract the children and add to many nice holiday memories. There is furthermore an

activity-house with table tennis, table football and a playing corner

– wonderful if you need a bit of shadow in the warm summer days. In a shadowy corner by the entrance to the forest area are furthermore a

garden hammock and a hammock

. This is the obvious place to go with a good book during the siesta, when the sun is at its highest.

The holiday apartment is situated on the second floor in a private part of the garden so you don’t sense that others live in the building. The entrance is on the first floor which also has

a terrace with a wonderful view over the Catalan landscape. Under the upper terrace is also a terrace area with BBQ.

The holiday home in itself covers 90 m


and has an

open common area, a smaller sitting room, a kitchen and a dining area.

There are furthermore two double bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds, which can be united or separated as you like. There are two bathrooms.

The house is situated in the Plana de Vic region

. The regional capital, Vic, lies 22 km. from Las Casas de Arcos and has

a rather good market every Tuesday and Saturday between 7 am and 2 pm.

All imaginable products can be bought here: delicacies from local producers, clothes, pots and living animals. It is absolutely worthwhile to visit the market in Vic. Moreover Vic is a cosy town with a lot of good stores. It is a must to visit one of the two

really good sausage makers

in the town, who deliver their Spanish sausages to special stores all over Spain and quite a few in the rest of the world. You can make a nice walk around the town in about 4 hours.

There are 90 km. to Barcelona

, so it is an obvious choice to reserve a day or two for a visit the bustling capital of Catalonia.

The villages Rupit and Tavertet

are also something you must see when living in the Vic area. Both are very charming and Rupit, which is built on rocks is attractive for children as well as grown ups. Bring swimming suits as it is possible to have a bath in the river below the village

. If you want a day on the beach, you can either go to Barcelona, which has a 4.5 km. long beach in front of the city or drive to Costa Brava

, which is 115 km. away. (in this case you could finish the day in Girona, which is a very fine city)

We are convinced that you will have a really good holiday in las Casas de Arcos, which we find is a veritable pearl for families with children.
