About the property

750 m2 unique holiday castle, on a butifull hill top

In the middle of nowhere lies a unique holiday castle

It's hard to imagine a more unique holiday home; here, you will stay in a magnificent castle on a mountain - only surrounded by other mountains, forests and stunning, untouched nature. From the great house, you will have a 360-degree view of valleys and unique landscapes; you can even catch a glimpse of the Costa Brava coast. You will not find a house that is more suitable for a get-away from the hustle and bustle. Here, you can just sit back in a lounger with a cold drink and enjoy the warmth and the fresh mountain air. And yet, the owner of the house has attributed the house with the slogan “In the middle of nowhere, connected to everywhere”, which is as true as I said - there’s just half an hour from your privately lying castle to Costa Brava and about 12 minutes to the nearest village with supermarket, restaurant, etc.

The holiday home’s facilities are numerous - the highlight is of course the 15-meter pool that overlooks the horizon and the beautiful scenery. The pool has varying depths and a Jacuzzi function at one end. With the pool comes several sun loungers and other seating arrangements, where you can sit with a cold drink and enjoy the view and the lovely Catalan sun with the unique opportunity to just take a dip in the refreshing water at any given time. On the same side of the house as the pool, lies the beautiful garden with several levels and all sorts of beautiful flowers and plants - but in reality, the entire area is ​​your garden; you can freely move in the countryside that surrounds the castle. Besides this, there is a large courtyard with room for almost everything in might want - you can, for instance, move the mobile grill in there and have a barbecue party.

What we refer to as castle was originally a place of religious relevance. The building consists of a monastery and a church that dates back to 1690 and was actively used by monks until 1822. Parts of both the monastery and the church was rebuilt in the 1800s. The well-preserved building contains an incredible amount of history, which also is noticeable when you walk around the grounds. The holiday home is now decorated with modern furniture and tools - along with the old exterior, the holiday home achieves a perfect combination of the old & historic and the new & modern. The great part about this is that you get an exciting cultural experience without losing access to new smart devices such as WiFi-Internet. The rooms in La Monastir de Santes has been specially designed by a young designer.

The house is divided into "apartments", which means that the rooms are distributed into separate units around the castle, where there are several rooms in many of the units. There is a total of seven of these "apartments" with 10 rooms and space for 26 people in total. With the 10 rooms comes 6 bathrooms of which 3 are en-suite. Furthermore, 2 of the rooms have direct access to the pool area. There are multiple well-equipped kitchens as well as a living room with flat-screen TV and several seating arrangements. There is also, in connection with the kitchens, several dining tables, so you can enjoy meals together.

Nearby activities includes bike rentals, hiking trails, horse riding, golf and more. Many of the activities are related to nature and contribute to a special experience in the beautiful countryside that surrounds the house.

The castle is also optimal for events such as weddings or alike. This is partly due to the fact, that a part of the building was made into a beautiful hall with room for about 200 people recently.

Catalonia, Spain: In the north-east of the Iberian, on the Mediterranean side, and occupying a relatively small area lays Catalonia, one of Spain's most fascinating and diverse regions. Geographically and culturally, the splendour of Catalonia is so unique. It has a vast diversity of landscapes ranging from rocky coastlines to long flat beaches, from mountains to plains, and from marshlands to forest. It has great cosmopolitan cities such as the amazing Barcelona with its fantastic art nouveau buildings, or the historical Gerona and its great old Jewish quarter. It has small medieval mountain villages sitting at the foot of the Pyrenees and elegant coastal resorts in the sandy shores of the Mediterranean Sea.

Catalonia has a distinct regional identity that borrows little form the rest of Spain. Catalans have their own language, and are intensely proud of their unique art, cuisine, folklore and long history. Ask the Catalans themselves and many will tell you that Catalonia is not a region but a Nation.

Art, cusine and wine: Catalonia is home of great artistic achievements and some of the most exciting art of the twentieth century such as the great Gaudis avant garde building the surrealism of the painters Salvador Dalí or Miró, or the cubism of Picasso, all of whom spent their formative years in Catalonia.

You can get lost in the Catalonian cuisine on the pastries-route, the cava-route, the sausage-route and the cheese-route. Please take contact to receive the multimedia taste route.

Catalans pride themselves on good eating too, and you will find some of Spain´s finest restaurants. Catalan food is typically Mediterranean, featuring olive oil as its staple component. As the region is so geographically diverse, it provides a variety of fresh high quality meat, poultry, game, seafood, fruit and vegetables and a great variety of wild mushrooms. Fine red and white wine is produced here, and Catalan sparkling wines (cavas) are favourite celebratory wines around the world.

Activities: Finally Catalonia offers a wide range of activities to suit all ages and levels of fitness: Skiing (in winter), swimming, horse back riding, cycling, hiking, golfing, ... there are endless possibilities.

We offer a vacation in your particular pace, where you blend in with the open-minded and friendly Catalans. Enjoy the silence in the small hills in the pre-Pyrenees. Enjoy sports and outdoor activities as walking, canoeing, beach life at the Costa Brava Coast or mountain biking. Or scamper about in the lively street- and café life in the Catalan towns. which together with its excellent communications, makes of Catalonia a top-class tourist destination in Europe.

Or how about watching a football match along with 98.917 other spectators on FC Barcelona's legendary Camp Nou ? The best advise is to come to Catalonia, Spain and see for yourself.

In this part of Catalonia is also plenty of great beaches

So close to Girona and just 100 km from Barcelona - If you wish to absorb the local life in one of the smaller villages in the Girona region, go swimming on the stunning beaches of the Costa Brava. Go hiking in the Pyrenees or see some of the most interesting museums in Catalonia. If you want everything in a week and within your reach, we highly recommend the Girona region - one of the most beautiful regions in all of northern Catalonia. The city of Gerona, near the French border. It is a beautiful city where you get a real feeling for its history just by walking through its ancient streets. Its a walled city which dates back to the Roman period, the old quarter is located within the city walls. The city of Girona has a rich, detailed, and dramatic history. The coastline north of Barcelona, the Costa Brava, is one of the busiest coastlines in northern Spain. White sand beaches, lifeguards on duty, and one restaurant after another makes it a perfect spot for an easy day on the beach

Golf: Golf Girona: is an 18-hole, par 72 golf course designed by the prestigious 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, without any antennas, power lines or highways crossing it, 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.

PGA Golf de Catalunya: has been selected to host the European Tour's Reale Open de España 2009.

PGA Golf Catalunya was designed by Ángel Gallardo and Neil Coles, who put all their knowledge gleaned from more than 25 years on the European Tour into this project.

The course has a very special 36 holes, par 72 layout. There are five different tees for each hole, making it the only course in Spain with this feature allowing players of any handicap to enjoy a good round of golf. PGA Golf Catalunya has been ranked in the top 10th list in the European best golf courses by “ Golf World “.
