Casa Miró - Beautiful decorated holiday home, situated in lovely surrounding’s

Overview

Property

Updated: 13-Nov-2016
8 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Sleeps 17 - indoor and outdoor private pool

Casa Miró has been restored and you will now find a very modern house with outdoor swimmingpool and in totai eight bedroms (7 double and one triple) and 7 bathrooms. The interior design is beautiful since the owners have a brilliant sense for the details. The garden is large and has plenty of room for playing ball. The outdoor BBQ provides the perfect spot for the long warm summer nights.

The house provides a perfect base for relaxation and a place you will love to return to after a long day discovering Catalonia. The nearest town Gironella is only three km. away. It is a cosy town with a lively shopping street on one side of the Llobregat river and with the antique village centre and the cathedral on the other side, where the weekly market day takes place. In 2008, Josep and Silvia have restored the house, by changing the antique unused stable to a new part with three new double rooms with bathrooms ensuite, a big, open kitchen , a beautiful dining table, high quality lounge furniture and best of all, panorama windows providing you with a beautiful view over the area. The changes has extended the capacity from 11 persons to 17 persons in 7 double rooms (5 with bathrooms ensuite) and a triple room. All changes have been made with respect for the original building, and unite perfectly antique and modern.

The house is very privately situated, as nearest neighbour is 300 metres away. It has a large garden with a big lawn. There is a covered terrace close to the swimming pool, and a new terrace is being constructed close to the dining room and the kitchen.

The local tennis court 3 km. away can be used for 6€/hour

Mobile internet connection available on request.

Trip to Barcelona or rent a holiday apartment before or after

During your stay in Catalonia, it is obvious to make a trip to the metropolis Barcelona. It takes from most houses only 1-1½ hours to drive in to the Catalan capitol know for Gaudi, Miró, The Ramblas, the Gothic neighbourhood, F.C. Barcelona, the beach and many other things. The previous summers, many of our guests have chosen to rent a holiday apartment in Barcelona before our after their stay in the beautiful Catalan countryside.

Perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family gathered at Casa Miro in July 2012 from the UK, Ireland, and the US--we couldn't have asked for a more perfect location. The descriptions were accurate, the house was immaculately clean and well kept, very modern, and comfortable for all of us, from the children to the grandparents. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

. It is only about an hour's drive from Barcelona, and lovely drives into the Pyrenees as well. But if you just want to relax you could easily amuse yourself for the entire visit just at the house and enjoying walks around the area and in the nearby village (Gironella).

Would definitely recommend this place, with no hesitations!

Restaurants

As there is a limited number of tourists in central Catalonia, you will get a true Catalan experience in the restaurants in the area. Most restaurants are average levelled with solid Catalan food. We will be happy to help with advice.

If you want to try a gourmet dinner in beautiful surroundings in the countryside, Els Casals, just awarded a Michelin star, is really worth a visit. You can visit the restaurant on you own, or join our 'evening in Els Casals', an evening where you visit the farm and then enjoy a gourmet dinner, designed especially to allow families with children to enjoy a gourmet meal as well.

Activities

Those who are looking for an active vacation won't be disappointed. There are brilliant activities for all age groups. Explore natural surroundings and cultural sites on many different cycling adventures or break your routine by going hiking, mountain biking, kayaking or river rafting on one of the many great places in the Pre-Pyrenees. If you (or your kids) prefer horseback riding there will be a huge variety of possibilities: horse riding routes, riding classes, pony trekking etc.

Canoeing

Just before Berga, the Llobregat river is dammed in order to be able to control the water, which from time to time can be a scarce resource in Catalonia and secondly produce electricity. This has created a big lake in front of the village of Cercs. Her you can rent canoes and either just paddle around in child-friendly conditions or take a longer trip upstream and back again.

Golf

The region has several golf courses and especially the ones situated in the Pyrenees should be amazing, with the mountainous surroundings.

Besides enjoying your house and the region, the advantage of staying central in Catalonia is that you have easy access to most of Catalonia's sights in one-day trips.

If you want a day in the Costa Brava area, there are several very nice stops you could make. If you are a fan of Salvador Dalí, you could start by heading all the way down to Figueres, where you find Museo Teatro Dalí.
