18th Century Castle for sale comprising various different residences in a pretty riverside location close to the beaches of the Costa Brava - ideal potential hotel business

This unique riverside Castle to buy is located in a prime location of the Baix Emporda, just a few kilometres from the nearest beaches of the Costa Brava, and boasts an impressive 3.415m2 of constructed area in a plot of just under 7.500m2.

The earliest parts of the property date from the 13th Century. There are also gothic features dating from the 15th Century whilst the most recent construction dates from the 18th Century. During much of the last century the estate formed part of a working watermill - accommodating multiple families during the rice harvest every year. It has since been converted into a guest house and private home.

The property, situated just 1km from the historic medieval town of Pals, is surrounded by paddy fields and enjoys lovely views across the Baix Emporda countryside.

The masia provides approximately 3.415m2 of internal floor area on a site of some 7.315m2. The property is currently configured as a private house with four self-contained apartments and a boutique hotel with seven double bedrooms.

The buildings are of traditional stone construction with a medieval section constructed in the 13th and 14th Centuries and a gothic section constructed in the 15th Century. The property has traditional tiled roofs with well preserved oak beamed ceilings.

The private house is laid out in an 'L' shape, arranged over part lower ground, ground and first floors around a large walled courtyard of 460m2, with various reception rooms, stores and one apartment at ground floor level, with three further apartments at first floor level.

The hotel building is arranged over lower ground, ground and first floors, with several large reception and recreation areas, a kitchen and seven bedrooms. There is also a separate single storey stone building currently operating as a restaurant during the summer months.

Adjacent to the main building is a small chapel, a parking area and various buildings to restore comprising approximately 322m2.

The property is ideally located and would be a superb investment for a buyer looking to set up a hotel business in one of the most exclusive and picturesque areas of the Costa Brava.

The estate is just a kilometre from one of the area's most prestigious golf courses and within easy reach of a private airstrip. The area also offers a wide range of water and land based activities including windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing, horse riding, road cycling and tennis.

Transport links are excellent with Barcelona only 120km via motorway to the south, Figueres and Girona are less than 40-minutes away and the French border only 50 minutes.
