About the property

S5274

Finca Paraiso is a spacious wooded estate on the border of the Darnius reservoir in the heart of the interior of the Costa Brava. The lake is uncrowded even in August and highly suitable for swimming, fishing and rowing. The surrounding area is excellent for walking, riding and other outdoor sports and the scenery with the backdrop of the Pyrenees, spectacular. Quaint stone built villages dot the surrounding area and the beautiful coves of the Alt Empordà seaside villages are within a 45 minute car drive. The town of Figueres with its Dalí museum, Thursday market and old town pedestrian shopping area is just 20 minutes by car and France is also easily accessible through the main La Jonquera frontier or the less travelled mountain passes. The loudest sound is the wind in the trees.

About Patricia Gill

I am English, but came to live in Catalonia in 1970, initially in Barcelona, but since we have been retired, we have moved to Finca Paraiso in Darnius in the Alt Empordà, about 150 kms. north of Barcelona.

I live in this beautiful place with my husband, Antonio and our labrador, Molly. We have three children between us and at the moment four grandchildren. We have plenty of visits from them all and from friends, so often have a full house.

We let apartments, here in Finca Paraiso (S5274)*, but also have a flat in Llançà (S16872)*on the Costa Brava, so if you are looking for a combination of beach and countryside, that can easily be arranged.

Why Patricia Gill chose Alt Emporda

In my opinion, this is one of the most privileged spots to live in Europe. The climate is ideal, the scenery, stunning and we are very close to the beautiful, and reasonably unspoiled beaches of the Northern Costa Brava which are situated within a National Park. The French frontier is a stone's throw away as is the town of Figueres with its weekly market, shops, theatre and cinemas. We are surrounded by charming stone built villages with local fiestas, particularly in the summer. The musical festival of Perelada in the summer attracts the very best artists. We are both retired and I couldn't think of a more wonderful place to live. We are truly lucky.

What makes this house unique

We live in the main house on the property and rent out the Studios, two bedroomed house and a small cabin.

Our home is on the border of a beautiful reservoir, which is lovely for swimming and walking. The village of Darnius, with shops for all basic provisions is about 2kms away.
