Living local is a great chance to make a real difference using "Responsible Tourism" which are supporting the local Catalan farmers as it aids maintaining traditional ways of living. Renovating the beautiful country homes, with a high degree of respect, stops the areas of mass tourism to grow larger and preserve the stunning scenery, wildlife and glory in Catalonia's historic buildings and precious heritage.

Cal de Mestrán is the perfect option for a big family or two groups of friends, if you want to combine a stay in a privately situated typical Catalan limestone house with swimming pool, with proximity to Barcelona.
It is amazing to find this beautiful spot on a top of a hill, in the much populated surroundings of Barcelona and the area is also protected by the Catalan government. After passing a quarter of villas on the hill, a short gravel road will take to the house with no nearby neighbours. From the house, there are several walks described in a book in the house, and if you want to explore Barcelona, you can either drive in 30-45 minutes depending on the traffic, or take the train.
The house is situated parallel to the hillside. To the left, you find the covered barbecue area and several beautiful spots with tables and chairs, so you can eat outside, where it suits you the best. Also in this level, you find the cosy area for small children, with playground, playhouse and a lot of toys. The view is excellent. For the bigger children (and childish adults), there is an activity hall with billiards and table football, and also some petanque balls for outside use.
One level up, you find the swimming pool of 8 x 4 meters, which is protected by a gate and has roman steps to enter. It is ideally situated, so you can enjoy the scenic view, or just relax in the sun loungers. Around the pool area, the typical Catalan vegetation is represented by olive and fig trees, wine and some strawberries can also be found when it is the season.
When you enter the house, you are welcomed by the freshness, which is so typical for Catalan limestone houses, which are constructed to keep the sun out and keep the indoor temperature pleasant. The house has several levels, which add to the charm. The first part is a sitting area with sofas, TV and a fireplace. Two steps up; there is a dining area with dining table and a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, stove, microwave, fridge, freezer etc., There is also a washing machine. On this floor too, there is a library and there is also a bathroom with shower.
On the first floor, you find the bedrooms. There is a sofa area with TV and DVD, from where you can enter the rooms. There is a triple room and a double room with a double bed and to offer extended flexibility, the biggest room is divided by a sliding door, in order that the room can either serve as triple room, or as one double room and one single room. In addition, there is another bathroom, beside the one downstairs. If you come with small children, there are two cots and one high chair available. Hence, there is in total capacity for 8 persons in 3 bedrooms.
The local village in the valley is only 3 km. away, and here you find shops and restaurants, and you can find even more in La Garriga, 6 km. from the house. From La Garriga, there are frequent trains to Barcelona, so if you prefer to avoid driving, you can park the car there and take the train. La Garriga itself is also a charming town, as it was holiday town for the rich Barcelona people 100 years ago, and has a lot of beautiful modernist houses.
