Beautiful holiday home close to the beach and with unique view overlooking the lake
Enjoy a stressless holiday in an incredibly beautiful and completely renovated Catalan masia for 16+6 persons situated in natural surroundings and with a beautiful view to the lake and the Mediterranean Sea. Start the morning with a swim in the lake, or drive down to the nearby beaches of Costa Daurada.
The house is situated in the southern part of Catalonia and provides the perfect base for those, who enjoy relaxation in an authentic atmosphere. The surroundings are extraordinarily idyllic, and still, in short driving distance, you will have the beachlife of Cambrils, Universal Studios Port Aventura, the historical regional capital Tarragona, the wine district of Priorat and many other things.
this property is situated on sloping land, allowing the fantastic view. The renovation has now been completed so the house now offers in total 8+2 bedrooms of very high standard.
The lower floor:The sloping land allows both floors to have direct access to the garden. On the lower floor you will have 3 suite-style bedrooms with own bathrooms. They have all direct exterior access. One of them are adapted for people with limited mobility and has its own small garden. Also on this floor, you find the mainliving room with sofas and chimney, and a big dining room, with a very large new kitchen, totally equipped for large groups, counting with dishwasher, big stone and oven (90 cm), microwave and nespresso machine etc.
The upper floor:On the upper floor, which is in level with the garden and the court yard, we have a big room with very high ceilings and light entry in the roof, another living room with fireplace and access to the 5 very large bedrooms (whereof 3 are family rooms, one with double bed and bunk bed, and other two with annexing loftrooms) and through a big glass door you have view and access to the nice courtyard.
All the 5 bedrooms have french balconies and beautiful bathrooms en suite with bathtubs placed so you will have direct lake-view!
On the second floor under the roof, the two annexing lofts, which have been made with two single beds in each, one designed for smaller children with a table to make drawings and different toys. The other is made in chill-out style for teenagers. These two attics have no bathrooms, so they are ideal for children, who will share bathrooms with their parents in the bedrooms.
Behind the house the beautiful patio (courtyard), which is equipped with sofas in the shade of the mandarin trees, a big outdoor table for outside dining and a barbecue corner and paella equipment. Here you can enjoy your cooking, perhaps with the ingredients from the local market, while chatting with the rest of the group.
For your convenience, there is also washing machine, dryer and iron.
HistoryIn the 1920s the house was built to serve as residence for the administrator of the dammed lake. The house is typical for a public building with a lot of beautiful details and high ceilings. When the dam was moved 200 meters, the building was left unused for decades, before the owners Ina and Albert got permission to take it over and renovate it. They have done so with great success and transformed the building into an incredibly beautiful holiday home with all modern facilities. Still the authentic atmosphere has been preserved and from the French balconies in almost all rooms and from the garden you can enjoy the picturous view to the lake and with the Mediterranean Sea in the distance.
Outdoor areaIn the furnished courtyard, with the outdoor barbecue corner and paella equipment, you can enjoy the warm summer evenings with the fragrance from the aromatic spice garden. To the right there is an area with trees, and by the Spa-pool of 3 x 3 meters, there is an area with sun loungers. The spa can be heated, so you can enjoy it under the stars.
The house has 4.000 m2 land, so there are many cosy spots, small walkways and natural banks. There is a private path directly to the lake. In the Eucalyptus tree, there is a swing and also there is a sandpit and a trampoline for the children and childish to play. Also in the premises you will find a tennis table.
Take a swim in the lake with water arriving directly from a nearby natural park. Also, in the village 2 km. away, there is a "village-pool", where you can have a swim with local children and teenagers, using this as their base in the summer. Finally, you can of course drive down to the beaches of Costa Daurada. If you are looking for a smaller, secluded beach, Ina and Albert can advise.
If want to hike, cycle or just explore the culture and gastronomy, this area is excellent, with natural parks, the wine district of Priorat, the cities Reus with the Gaudi museum and Tarragona with the Roman Amphi-theater are both less than 30 minutes drive away. Both cities has very lively antique town centres. Please request our activity document for further inspiration.Activities:The owners live in a village only 3 km. away, and are very helpful with suggestions for bicycle rides and walks suitable for children or more advanced, as well as arranging tastings in local wine cellars or tapas workshoprs or providing any other information needed. (For more information about activities, we also have an activity document and we post from time to time news on our facebook: www.facebook.com/ cataloniaholidaylettings )
