Luxury boutique hotel for sale between Girona and Figueres with beautiful views to the Pyrenees - just 15km from the beaches of the Costa Brava
This superb boutique hotel is wonderfully located just 20km from Figueres, 30km from Girona and 20km from the beaches of the Costa Brava.
The oldest parts of the castle date from the 12th or 13th Century - possibly earlier - where records show that it was once a strategic defence tower. From the late 15th Century the property was extended and converted into a private residence for a string of wealthy Catalan dynasties.
In 1993, following a 10-year restoration project, the palace was converted into a luxury boutique hotel by a well known Barcelona restaurateur. It has been running as a successful luxury hotel and restaurant business ever since, becoming one of the most prestigious and best known hotels in the area.
The hotel has 10 spacious, luxury suites distributed across two floors, each one beautifully decorated in its own unique style. The accommodation is distributed around a stunning central courtyard.
The hotel also has a wonderful, 60-cover restaurant with capacity for up to 200 guests for special events.
The castle/palace is situated in a plot of 3500sqm and boasts a splendid garden along the eastern facade with swimming pool and beautifully maintained lawns.
The property itself is 2000sqm in size, distributed across four levels, including a basement/bodega, ground floor, first floor and second floor.
The property is distributed as follows:
Lower Ground Floor
Large function room with access to the garden; bodega
Reception hall/interior courtyard; living room (including bar, TV area, billiards table, library and grand piano) with vaulted ceilings; WC; restaurant dining room; annex dining room (covered porch); kitchens; large storeroom / cold room
5 large suites
Lawn garden; swimming pool; lemon tree patio
The property is being sold fully furnished and there is also the option to purchase the vendor's house - a 17th Century annex property located alongside the castle. The house is 350m2, distributed across three levels. (The house is not included in the asking price).
The hotel is ideally located in the Alt Emporda, just off the AP7 motorway between Girona and Figueres - only 40km from the French border and 20km from the Costa Brava coastline.
The new high speed rail link linking Barcelona with the France (due to open in 2009) will stop in both Figueres and Girona and is likely to have a major impact on visitor numbers to the area.
