Beautiful 6-bedroom country house for sale in La Garrotxa, Girona

  • Bedrooms 6
  • Bathrooms 6
  • Size 740m²
  • Plot size 13ha

A beautiful Tuscan-style country property set in 13 hectares of private land boasting wonderful countryside views to the volcanic hills of the Garrotxa.

This idyllic country retreat is located only a couple of minute's drive from the nearest village and just 7km from Besalú, one of Catalunya's most important and best-preserved medieval towns.

Earliest recordings of the main house date back to the 14th Century yet the property has been extended over the years (now boasting over 700 m² of constructed area) and was fully renovated in 1997 by a celebrated interior designer.

The property boasts 5 en-suite bedrooms, including 3 self-contained apartments, each with its own private living area, kitchenette and independent entrance, and a 2-bedroom staff apartment. The layout lends itself perfectly for upscale events and luxury rentals. Indeed, the property is currently operating as a successful rental business with all necessary licences. 

The home is set in 13 hectares of private land including a beautifully landscaped garden with large salt water swimming pool, several outdoor terraces and porches, a rose garden, a vegetable growing area, a maze and various water features. The land includes around 5 hectares of fields, making it ideal for horses, and approximately 7 hectares of woodland. 

Both the property itself and the grounds have a distinct Tuscan-style and offer an oasis of peace and tranquility. 

The property is equipped with propane gas central heating and there is both private well water and mains water. 

There is also a project to build 5 stables for horses.
