The house is a very big masia which has been documented from XI century as the house of the feudal lords of the area. It’s about a group of houses that were built over the years making it a very big property with room for about 20 people. It has many dining rooms, living rooms, kitchens, wineries, chapels, interior and exterior, patios, gardens, orchards, and about 27 hectares of forest and land. The masia is fully renovated following the sustainability criteria keeping the original essence of the house and the time, preserving historical and ecological value, and integrating it with the natural surroundings.
There are about 10 rooms in the masia. Some of them are shared (two people in total) and others are private. The rooms have all the necessary equipment, comfortable beds, blankets, light, electricity to connect devices, and especially a beautiful view to the different mountain areas with private patios and balconies. Some of them have fireplace, inside private kitchen, and balcony. The masia also offers free use of laundry machine.
