A superb opportunity to acquire an historic 12th Century castle and establish a high-end boutique hotel business in one of Girona province's most beautiful medieval villages

This magnificent 12th Century castle to buy is located in the centre of a beautiful medieval village in Girona province, close to the town of Olot and with a dramatic backdrop of the volcanic hills of La Garrotxa.

The earliest documentation relating to the property dates back to 1147 and the building has undergone numerous modifications and extensions over the ensuing centuries. The tower, which has a Romanic door, is thought to be the original construction, dating from around the end of the 10th Century.

Until the 1970s, the castle was inhabited by a school of nuns.

The property is constructed over three levels and built around a large interior courtyard.

Though the main structure is in good condition, the castle requires extensive renovation.

The property would be ideal for an investor looking to establish a 27 key (aprox) boutique hotel business in an area of Girona province which attracts significant numbers of both national and international visitors.
