Overview

If you ever wanted to place yourself in the Catalonian version of Heidi, then this is it.

This is the place to spend your days sleeping beneath patchwork quilts and yodeling into the abyss of blue and green mountains.

Climbing to 950 meters means that you won’t be vying for privacy at this rustic 7 bed home; as you pass through the fairytale forest you stumble into a brightly lit clearing occupied by a quaint 200-year-old stone property split on two levels with outdoor stairs and a roughhewn wooden balcony.

All those stories of childhood come flooding back as you step inside and take in the exposed stone walls, the heavy beams holding up the ceiling, the semi industrial kitchen, and the crackling fireplace.

You half expect Cinderella to bustle past with a mop bucket.

Rustic and seemingly austere, this charming property is not as chaste as it first appears. En suite bedrooms, Wi-Fi, and the blue pool scattered with sun loungers all bring a balance of modern comfort.

The home itself is split into two; bedrooms are in one building and the socially active dining and cooking area in another. Whilst this may seem strange to some we didn’t see it as being a big deal; for us it simply meant that uninterrupted sleep and resting could be done in one place, and raucous drinking of wine and feasting could be done in another.

This also seems the perfect set up for groups or large families seeking their own independence, although those with small children or toddlers may find it a chore.

Being in the mountains is good for the soul, and this property places you right in the heart – yet not high enough that you miss out on the balmy Mediterranean days.

There is nothing more wonderful than wandering down to the strategically placed benches in the gardens and gazing out over the tapestry of rugged hills and rising peaks that sit below.

You can see why for so many years this was a refuge retreat for mountaineers traversing the Pyrenees.

Despite feeling like you are in the lost world – civilization is not far away. Only a 15-minute drive away you will find the pretty patisseries, juicy butchers, and good heart restaurants of Coll de Nargo.

The duty free haven of Andorra is also close by.

For those who want to stick with the wilderness then you will find cool swimming holes and wildflower walks galore.
