Overview

Some places stop you in your tracks, and glimpsing the 10th century historical villa looming against the balmy Mediterranean backdrop of the Pyrenees, you are sure to fall for the wow factor.

Gold gleams against the evergreen trees, the peaks climb to dizzying heights, and clear waters wash down the mountainside. This is a spot where the sun spills over the lawns, you can swim in the natural water holes close by, and heavy wooden doors hide secrets from the past.

Occupied in the Spanish Civil War and with its own tiny chapel and ancient museum; every nook and cranny of this home is crammed with stories.

Heavy stone, open arches, cavernous rooms, and exposed beams set the scene for a seven-bedroom property that leaves a lasting impression.

Old and new collide in the most dazzling fashion; the 10th century wing with its low ceilings and high steps has been turned into a superior games room with pool table and cinema seating. 18th century frescoes adorn the first floor, and a 200-year-old bathtub stands elegantly waiting for someone to take a dip.

Despite being a thousand years old, no small hint of comfort has been sacrificed. Spacious living spaces and generous bedrooms are beautifully laid out across two floors.

Tasteful furnishings and open fireplaces make for the perfect atmosphere to curl up with a vintage bottle of wine and a good book, and terraces and balconies edge the property offering splendid views out over the hills. All the bedrooms are beautiful with bright tiled floors, romantic lighting, and crisp linens.

Many rooms boast doorways that open to the outside world offering a sunny place to drink your morning coffee.

The kitchen is charming and cozy, and reasonably well stocked; although you may be hard pressed to fit 14 chefs into the space.

Entertainment come rain or shine is never scarce in this historical villa. Young and old will delight in exploring the grounds, the tiny church, the museum, and the hidden pieces of history throughout.

For more modern fun, there are two beautiful blue swimming pools – one inside and one out.

In the winter months the indoor pool remains at a blissful 30-32 degrees, and there is a sauna and gym to help you stay active.

Children can play to their hearts content in the games room or in the lovely outside park placed prettily on the lawn. Everywhere there is the feeling of serenity; generous privacy and picturesque views.

The property managers only drop by early in the morning to tend the pool and collect rubbish bags before disappearing once more.

Days can be spent relaxing in the magnificent property, walking in the velvet woodlands, or even taking a scenic drive around the winding mountain roads.

Another jewel in the crown is the cool river that runs below the house only a few steps away. This is an idyllic spot for wild swimming; you can spend the whole day plunging into the natural pools, picnicking on the rocks, and indulging in the gifts of nature.

Less than an hour away you will find awe-inspiring Andorra with incredible tax free shopping and a plethora of rustic mountain restaurants.

If you prefer to stay closer to home, then the village of Coll de Nargo is also less than ten minutes from your door and offers basic provisions and a slice of traditional Catalan life.
