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.

Casa Bosque is a large and spacious villa of 450 m2 with capacity for 18 people. Three elements of the holiday home stand out: The location, the pool area and the interior. The house has been renovated, which means that its style is very modern and comfortable. However, the long history of the house can still be felt through the modern look.
The area and the location of the apartment are as mentioned before one of the big pluses of the home. Casa Bosque is situated on the top of a hill and from here there is a breathtaking view over a large mountain lake. This is a damming of the river Segre. The area is very hilly, which means that the population density is very little. Therefore, there are no noisy neighbors nearby. You can enjoy the holiday in completely peaceful surroundings.
Casa Bosque's style is very authentic and typical Catalan. There is for an example a small chapel next to the house, and several of the old stone walls can still be seen inside. This does not prevent the apartment in being incredibly comfortable and modern designed. Central and natural meeting point is the living room. Here there is a large sitting area in a living room, where you can watch TV and enjoy the view of the large panoramic windows. One of the two kitchens, which are both fully equipped with all necessary tools, are connected to this living room. Here there are among others a dishwasher, a microwave and an oven. The second kitchen on the second floor is also thoroughly equipped, to which there are a nice living room and a dining area.
There are a total of 9 bedrooms - they are all double rooms spread over 8 single beds and 5 double beds. General for these is the great spaciousness and rustic atmosphere, but still modern look. The bedrooms are spread throughout the house: On the ground floor there is a room that is adapted for the disabled. On the first floor there are 5 rooms, and on the second floor there are 2 rooms. Finally, in the top of the house, on the third floor, there are rooms also. All the single beds can off course be pushed together, if wanted. For all these bedrooms there are 4 spacious bathrooms.
In front of the house there is a large garden table with a wonderful view to the lake. Since there is a BBQ area with two large grills right next to it, it is natural to enjoy the homemade meals here. The long and warm Catalan evenings are perfect for this. A place that will surely be a big hit is the swimming pool. With a size of 50 m2 and a great view from there, it is a great place to cool off. The area is equipped with sun loungers. There is also an outdoor shower next to this.
For small children, there is also a small playground with slides and swings.
All in all it is a perfect holiday home for groups seeking high quality and quiet surroundings.

Description of the region :
The region Urgell and Lleida stretches from the regional capitol Lleida along the Segre river and the road C-14 up through the Pyrenees and in direction Andorra. The area around Lleida is one of Spain's most extensive plateaus, and the flat terrain makes it ideal for agriculture, olive- and fruit plantings and increasingly wine production.
The area Urgell on the other hand, is less populated, mountainous and has great nature and sceneries. Wake up to the smell of the grass and the flowers, the sounds of the birds, the locusts and the bells of the cows in the distance. Feel the dry heath taking over when the day matures. Jump in the pool and dry again in the beach chairs, that the basics of a vacation in the Lleida and Urgell region.
Impressive medieval castles
The Lleida province is known in Catalonia for its castles. In total 17 castles in different shapes and standards makes the province a magnet for people interested in medieval history or those who simply are attracted to the histories about knights, dukes, princesses, barons and the related extravagant way of living. And the kids love it!
Some of the castles are very well maintained and a few even inhabited, while others are only ruins. A very fun way to explore it is to stay in one of the medieval villages built together with one of the castles. Please request information.

Many of the routes are signposted and easy to follow.
