Overview

This is a place where nature presides, ideal for quality rural tourism. We’re in the heartland of Catalonia, 90 minutes from Barcelona, close to the Pyrenees.

It’s a superb location, harmonious and peaceful. Beyond, the mountainside is wild, penetrated only by foresters and mushroom and truffle-hunters, who delve deep into the woods in search of these special elements of local cuisine.

The impressive estate of five independent holiday homes shares some of the best facilities in rural Barcelona. There are two swimming pools, one of which is indoor and heated, as well as a games room and spa facilities.

It's a pastoral setting that is hard to beat, surrounded by Alpine firs and looking out to the high (2,500 m) peaks of the nearby Cadi mountains. Human habitations are few and far between in this secluded mountainous location.

Holiday home CA19 is striking and spacious, occupying two floors of a massive masia, or Catalonia farmhouse. (We also offer the larger, 4-bedroomed property CA20).

You enter under a covered, furnished porch for meals in intimacy outdoors, looking out onto a broad lawn that is virtually for your private use. It's a great spot if you’re coming with children.

The accommodation is comfortable and well-finished, opening onto the gardens to let in a cheerful natural ambience. Sturdy, original 18th century stone walls are complemented by sold wooden floors and ceilings, which also lend the building warmth.

We found that the mobile cover can disappear, so you may have to go outside to make calls.

The living and kitchen/dining areas are divided by a wooden staircase that goes up to the two bedrooms. Both feel very welcoming and have quality furnishings and a rustical décor.

Outside, the porch is very private and a perfect place to enjoy meals. The large outdoor swimming pool is across the gardens. As you bathe, the views all around are wonderful, especially down a virgin forested valley.

Directly above the outdoor pool is a barbecue hut and close by is a games room with table tennis, pool table and table football. Best of all is a heated indoor pool. These facilities are all available to guests at no extra charge.

There are also spa services, which are not included in the accommodation rental price and charged locally.

Facilities that one might expect of a high category hotel without the pressure of too many guests.

The setting is a major attraction. Walking and biking here is in the pristine air of the early Pyrenees county of Berguedà, at the threshold of the some of the most famous mountains in Catalonia. The area is very sparsely populated and you can feel free to explore pretty much on your own. In the immediate area you'll see curious large scale sculptures set in place by an artist neighbour.

Small local operators offer all kinds of activities, hang gliding, canyoning and high altitude guiding. If you want to hire bicycles, they can be brought to the house. There’s even a small ski station 20 km away

Those drawn to mountains will be excited by being by the north face of the Cari range, especially formidable. Best of all is Pedraforça (2,457 m), wrapped in its own particular mystery, a legend among Spanish mountaineers.

In less than an hour you can be in Cerdanya, a spectacular high and sunny valley that borders with Andorra. Here, sub-Mediterranean woods alternate with Alpine meadows, beech forests, woodlands of red and black pine and conifer. Cerdanya is a privileged environment where outdoor sports are extensively practiced. There are trails for mountain bikes, hiking paths of various durations, cross-country or downhill skiing, golf courses, horse riding and fishing.

Of course, the CA19 locality is specifically not built up with local shops and restaurants. There’s just a tiny village nearby (population 76) with no services. But it's only 15 minutes to Berga, mountain capital of the region, for shopping, restaurants and other services.

Access is pleasantly rapid from Barcelona: motorway all the way to Berga and then 15 minutes along a good, if naturally winding, mountain road. Girona Airport may look much closer on the map, but the roads are more sinuous and the journey takes about the same time.

Rijk-Jan | April | 2016

Just perfect! Helpfull people and beautiful area. We had a splendid week in Capolat."

Sam | September | 2015

What a fantastic time we had staying at the property near Berga. We arrived in a torrential storm but were met by the charming owner Josep, who showed us around and made sure we had everything we needed. After that the weather picked up and we spent 7 very happy days exploring the area, and making the most of the facilities.Our property (ca19) was really interestingly decorated in true rustic style and the outdoor pool has a view like no other. Anyway just wanted to pass on some very positive feedback - and thank you and your team for making it all possible. Best wishes."

Kate | July | 2015

We had a great week in this house near Berger. The facilities - pools and games room were great for relaxing at the house and the surrounding views were gorgeous. The proprieter was very welcoming and helpful, buying food for us in advance of our arrival and helping to arrange a parascending session. There are pleasant local walks all around and you can drive further afield to walk in the higher Pyrenees. It is very remote and getting to the nearest shops and town requires at least a 30 - 40 minute drive on winding roads; most places took longer to get to. The house itself was comfortable; it could do with a bit more kitchen equipment and crockery but other than that, everything was fine and clean."
