A more idyllic setting is hard to imagine. This wonderful country property is located in 16 hectares of private land with beautiful gardens, separate guest accommodation, stables, a paddock, swimming pool and tennis court, all enjoying breathtaking country views across the volcanic hills of the Garrotxa to the snow capped Pyrenees.
The location is exceptional, being just 8km (7-minutes) from Banyoles with its shops, restaurants, cafés and picturesque lake, yet in a private, hillside estate offering total tranquility and privacy.

Access to the property is via a well maintained, asphalt and stone road and the estate is just 35km from the city of Girona and its international airport.
