Overview

About the property

Just 95 km. from Barcelona, 120 to Costa Brava in great authentic surrounding

Casa Monica is a traditional Catalan farmhouse that has been restored and has space for 13 people. It is now a holiday gem of very high quality - in totally stunning surroundings. Here you live peacefully among hills with trees, and with a pool in the garden, this is the base for an unforgettable holiday.

There are no noisy neighbors - only the quiet countryside. The hilly landscape, cultivated fields and small streams creates a special atmosphere, and despite the hot and dry climate, the garden at the house is green and neat. There is a very beautiful view from virtually anywhere in the house and garden.

When you enter the nice entry, you are met by a large spacious family room. Here there is a cozy corner with comfortable sofas, and behind this, there is a large and wide dining table, where you can enjoy your meals. Next to the family room the authentic kitchen is where you have all the necessary utensils - including a dishwasher, a washing machine, a microwave and many other things. The kitchen is great, and the owner has put a lot of effort into it. From the aforementioned living room there is a staircase to the first floor where the bedrooms of the house are: There are a total of 7 rooms, of which 1 is a single room and 6 double rooms. Several of the beds can be moved apart, so can adapt the rooms. All rooms are of high quality and are very spacious. Two of the bedrooms have a huge shared balcony with chairs, where the sunset can be enjoyed in the evening. From one of the bedrooms you can actually see the sunset directly from the bed. There are 4 bathrooms in total, of which one is en suite. They are all modern and beautifully decorated.

Much of your time down here will be spend in the lovely garden, and especially the plant covered terrace will be the holiday’s natural meeting point. The fact that the garden is fairly green shows that the owners have put a lot of work into it. It's rare that a house has such a beautiful and well-kept garden like this. Up behind the covered terrace there is a wonderful little orchard, where you can taste real Catalan fruit.

A clear hit among the kids is the swimming pool. With a size of 32 m2 and with sun beds for all guests in the house, this is the perfect place for ultimate relaxation. Here you can enjoy the Catalan sun at full blast, and if it gets too hot, you can take swim in the cooling water. The pool is located on top of a cliff, and there has been placed a fence around it. There are also at the pool breathtaking views over the Catalonian countryside.

Behind the house there is a swing, football and basket.

The nearest town, Gironella, is located just 9 km away. Here there are both shopping, cafes and restaurants.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Casa Monica. As a group of 6 adults and 7 children, aged from 6 months to 10, the house was perfect for our needs. The separate summer house was particularly nice, providing additional space for relaxing and playing. The grounds were also great for the kids, allowing them to have lots of freedom to roam around, play football and basketball. The pool was very clean and a good size and was even a good temperature.

The house overall was clean and had everything that we needed for cooking and dining.

The only negative with small children is that the staircase was a bit treacherous. As a mitigating factor, however, there is a back door from the first floor which leads directly out to the grounds, so the staircase could be avoided if necessary. There was a stair gate, but it would probably be better if it were fit to the top of the staircase to avoid any tumbles from the top.

Bertel and Lisbeth were also incredibly helpful in arranging babysitting and providing local information.

We would happily return to this house again and would recommend it to anyone.

Casa Monica is situated 9. km - from the authentic village Gironella. Here you will find a little street with supermarket, a few clothing stores, pharmacy, two bars, a delicatessen, fish store, 4 restaurants and a few more shops. In the old part of town is a few more shops and a weekly market on Wednesday.

The house is situated central in Catalonia hence you have the ideal location, when exploring the region. There are just below 100 km. to Barcelona, 120 km. to Costa Brava and just 40 km. to the historic town Vic, with the regions largest markets on Tuesdays and Saturdays all year round.

Here you are living in the authentic and stunning Spanish (Catalan) country site and you have still all the best possibilities to visit some of the many, many great sites within an hour or two drive.

The perfect location for a fantastic holiday in peaceful surroundings.
