Renovated holiday house for 9 persons with swimming pool
Take a relaxing holiday in private and peaceful surroundings - there are no noisy neighbors here and the view is moreover amazing. Casa Castelot has room for 9 guests and it is therefore perfect for two families. The house has a very unique and special pool, which undoubtedly will become children's favorite facility.
The property was originally a farmhouse, where agricultural workers lived and used it periodic until 1990. Then it was unoccupied for some years before it got completely renovated in 2002. This was done very carefully because they wanted to preserve the Catalan style and charm, which certainly has succeeded.
One of the wonderful things about Casa Castelot is its location: The apartment is on the borderline between the two local areas Alt Empordá and Pla de l'Estany in the Costa Brava area. It is located on the edge of a hill, which gives a beautiful panoramic view over the valley below, which is dominated by cornfields, spruce plantations and oak trees. The river Fluvia winds through the Catalan countryside.
In addition to the view, the location of the property gives a peaceful atmosphere. You can enjoy the sunset over the mountains, and the Pyrenees can be glimpsed in the background.
On the ground floor you will find the common areas: there is a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, oven, dishwasher and washing machine and much more, a dining room where you can enjoy your homemade meals and a cozy sitting area with TV and fireplace. There is also on this floor a large double room with a modern and spacious bathroom.
From the kitchen there is a direct exit to the covered terrace - a place that probably will be your natural meeting point and it is without a doubt a perfect place to enjoy the homemade dinner. Furthermore there are a BBQ and a view to the pool, so you can keep an eye on the children playing.
The staircase to the first floor is in the living room, and it leads up to two double rooms and a triple room. There is also a modern bathroom. Especially from the rooms here on this floor, you can experience a wonderful view over the valley. On the other side of the house there is also a covered terrace.
The swimming pool, located toward the hillside, will surely be the children's favorite. It has a size of the entire 32 m2, and it's very unique: It has an overflow system that integrates it into the landscape. It is the ultimate relaxation place and also works as a good cooling element for the body. The pool is equipped with sun beds, where the Catalan heat can be enjoyed at full blast.

Description of the region :
If you wish to absorb the lively local life in one of the smaller villages in the Girona region, go swimming on the stunning beaches of the Costa Brava. Go hiking in the Pyrenees or see some of the most interesting museums in Catalonia. If you want everything in a week and within your reach, we highly recommend the Girona region - one of the most beautiful regions in all of northern Catalonia.
The city of Gerona, near the French border. It is a beautiful city where you get a real feeling for its history just by walking through its ancient streets. Its a walled city which dates back to the Roman period, the old quarter is located within the city walls. The city of Girona has a rich, detailed, and dramatic history. The first inhabitants of the area were the Iberians. Then came the Romans who built a fortification there, which was named Gerunda. After having been occupied by a number of cultures, Girona finally fell under control by the Holy Roman Empire. In the 12 th century, the Jewish community flourished in Girona , and a major Kabbalistic school was built. However, the Catholic kings drove the Jews away from Spain in 1492. Later on, in the 17 th to 18 th century, Girona fell under siege by the French, and it was conquered by Napoleon in 1809. The walls of the city were destroyed in the 19 th century. Today, the city is a rich heritage site full of historic and cultural beauty.
The most striking characteristic about of the province is undoubtedly its great diversity. From a tourist point of view it can offer a magnificent coastal area -the internationally recognised Costa Brava- as well as a fine mountain region, which is ideal for both tourism and the practice of a wide variety of sports. This balance between coastal and inland scenery, along with a mild climate, helps attract tourists to the province throughout the year.
The coastline north of Barcelona, the Costa Brava, is one of the busiest coastlines in northern Spain. White sand beaches, lifeguards on duty, and one restaurant after another makes it a perfect spot for an easy day on the beach. To the north the town of Roses, provides rental of windsurfers, diving equipment etc. However should you prefer something a little quieter, we highly recommend the small village of Cadaques a to the north. This beautiful village build on the rocks around a small bay, is virtually untouched by modern day mass-tourism. And although the are no sandy beaches the water is clearer and perfect for a small snorkelling-trip. Cadaques is also the birth town of Salvador Dali, and was a reuge for painters and jazz-musicians. The small and central square is a beautiful little place for a lunch. The town also has some small very good and cosy seafood restaurants.
Figueres - Dalí
The hometown of one of the worlds most influential surreal artists Salvador Dali- Figueres, is also home of the official Dali museum. This spectacular is a must-see for all visitors in the area. Designed by Dali himself, the museum is a piece of art in itself, on the outside as well as the inside.
