Overview

About the property

Amazing wooden-covered porch with barbecue, AC, wifi, 5 bedrooms for 14 people

El Solei is a beautiful villa located in Puig-Surís, in a quiet, safe and sunny neighbourhood with breathtaking mountain views. Situated only 2 km. from Banyoles lake, 15 km. from Natural Park of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone, 35 km. from the magnificent Costa Brava beaches, 25 km. from the Girona International Airport and 115 km. from Barcelona city.

The house has got a capacity from 6 up to 14 people. It's a spacious house with 5 bedrooms (one is adapted for handicapped people), three bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, juicer, toaster...), a large living room - dining room with TV, TV satellite, DVD, radio-CD, air conditioning, fireplace, internet access,...

Outside there is a big garden of 1.000m2 with swings and a slide for children, a tennis table, a basketball hoop, a little house for children, garden furniture, a large wooden covered porch with barbecue and an outdoor fridge which is ideal for eating outside all year round, an enormous private swimming-pool of 10x5m with saline treatment.

2 km. from the house there are the supermarkets, restaurants, shops and the hospital.

SOME ACTIVITIES:

HIKING: The routes have trail markers and are organised in a network of loop trails, and hikers can adapt the route or the stages according to their requirements or level of preparation.

CYCLING HOLIDAYS: Life looks different when you're sitting on a bicycle: everything takes on the right speed and you become part of a landscape in motion. In El Solei there are lots of kilometres of routes and roads ideal for cycling with the family or with friends, in complete safety, so that you can take in every stretch of the region as if yo were re-creating it each time you pedal. You set the speed when you're on your bike and the infinity of proposals available will adapt to it perfectly.

Unique spots close to the sea or in the mountains, to find the complicity that comes to those who ride bikes. Besides, the house has got a specific enclosed patio to lock your bikes up.

SHOPPING IN COSTA BRAVA: As you stroll through the romantic historic quarter of Girona, the capital of the province, why not take advantage to do some shopping in the exclusive luxury boutiques and shops that you come across on your way? Besides, next to the house there are two Shopping Malls or Shopping Centres where you will find all kinds for clothes, jewels, shoes, perfumes and gifts among others.

GOLF: The house is located 9km from Girona Golf. It's an 18-hole, par 72 golf course designed by the English architect F.W. Hawtree, seeded entirely with Penncross, the best quality grass for playing golf. A course that is entirely adapted to its natural surroundings, featuring an advanced sprinkling system using regenerated water from Girona's purification plant, and meeting the most up-to-date environmental standards. The top nine holes are extremely competitive – their design requires players to use all the clubs in their bags. The bottom nine are simply spectacular, with all the tees set atop walls built with Girona stone, offering impressive panoramic views of the fairways. It is a true pleasure to follow the flight of the ball towards its destination, and encourages many players to take out their woods.

There is paved access to the house.

The ideal situation of the house allows you to do a variety of routes to the entire lake and its natural sites of interest declared. Or if you prefer, you can do different excursions in the province of Girona since the house is located in the heart of the surrounding region.

The house has an extensive collection of tourist information about the region and the province.

The house is located 50 meters from shops and 1 km. from supermarkets, 2 km. from Banyoles lake, 9 km. from Besalú village, 9 km. from Girona city, 15 km. from Natural Park of Volcanic Zone, 35 km. from Costa Brava beaches, 35 km. from Figueres (Dalí Museum), 60 km. from the ski station, 110 km. from Barcelona city.

COSTA BRAVA: Like a canvas where nature has intended to combine with exquisite delicacy the intense green of the pine groves, the massive steadfastness of the rocks, the softness of the golden sands and the deep, dazzling blue of the sea - that is the Costa Brava.

Frommer's Magazine from US and National Geographic have published in October 2011 the Best Destinations of the World for 2012 which are Girona and the Costa Brava.

Exuberant Barcelona has long hogged the limelight, but its little sister Girona is stepping out from the wings. This diminutive city in northern Catalonia packs a cultural punch that is the envy of many a larger destination, with a superb dining scene to match. Girona's historic quarter, a secretive jumble of medieval mansions and courtyards crowned by a magnificent cathedral, is piled up on the eastern bank of the River Ter. To the west of the river, elegant avenues laid out during the 19th century are lined with smart boutiques and cafés. The lofty peaks of the Pyrenees form a violet smudge on the horizon and the rugged coves of the Costa Brava are just a short drive away.

GASTRONOMY: Gastronomic mecca Celler de Can Roca, voted the best restaurant in the world by Restaurant magazine. The best restaurant of the world was El Bulli located in Girona too in 2005 and for 5 years.

SKI: The Vallter 2000 ski station is situated 60km from the house.

Vallter 2000 is surrounded by peaks, some exceeding 2,800 meters, the base station is located at 2,000 meters above the valley of the River Ter.

It's a privileged location since it gives the visitors a unique and exceptional views. Since the 2535 m level you can see the bay of Roses and the Cap de Creus (Costa Brava). This proximity to the sea makes the eastern storms leave snowfall can exceed one meter in height. Vallter where the snow is more Mediterranean.

-The mountain resort of Vall de Núria is situated 65km from the house.

Discover an unparalleled environment where the waters of the Núria river can only run its course thanks to the deep narrow gorges that have been cut through this hard rock, until you arrive at the valley of the Freser, a river which flows into the great Ter at Ripoll.
