Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Sant Mateu de Montnegre - Mas Vinyoles I

Comfortable selfcatering acomodation halfway between Girona and the Costa Brava

Mas Vinyoles is a Catalan countryside house that is partly converted to offer you a pleasant space to spend your holidays, no matter the time of the year. We have two comfortable apartments fully equipped (central heating, dishwasher, washing machine), one for four (two bedrooms), the other for six people (three bedrooms). There is a garden with a swimming pool, a biological vegetable garden and an orchard.

Mas Vinyoles is situated in the heart of the protected area 'Les Gavarres', a series of lovely hills covered with Mediterranean forest that go from Girona to the Costa Brava. The next village is 7 km away; a small asphalted road leads from it to the house.

This is a place to spend some quiet days of rest, exploring the surroundings by foot or by bicycle, or discover the cultural offer (monuments, museums, theatre etc) The beach is a 30 min drive away.

The apartment for 6 people has it's own terrace.

The apartment for 4 people has it's own private sitting-space below an old oak-tree. Here you can eat or read or sunbathe if you wish to do so.

About Kathrin Schmidhauser

Originally from Switzerland I moved to a house close to Mas Vinyoles in 1985. Here I raised my children and I learnt to love the spot and the people. Little by little I have gotten more and more involved with the needs of the place and currently I participate in various groups that look for a reasonable way to conserve this unique hills.

Kathrin Schmidhauser purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Kathrin Schmidhauser chose Girones

When in 1998 I had the opportunity to buy my own property I didn't doubt that it had to be in the same area. Sant Mateu de Montnegre a special micro-clima with temeratures 5º lower in summer and 5º warmer in the winter then Girona.

It took me some time to convince old Conxita that I would look well after this property that had been in the same family for more then 500 years. Fortunately the first Vinyoles had been a Katherina also and the fact that I talked catalan made things a lot easier and we even ended up becoming friends.

Sant Mateu is a small group of houses ('veinat') in the heart of the protected area 'Les Gavarres', a chain of soft hills that go from Girona to the Costa Brava which are almost entirely covered with a typical Mediterranean forest. Vinyoles (65 hectares) is possibly the oldest farmed land up here; the written documents of the first Catharina Vinyoles go 500 years back. Nowadays about the same number of people live in this apparently remote place as in the old days.
