OVERVIEW \ architectural eco-villa starting at $500
Situated in the mountains among unspoiled nature with 180 degree views of Gavarres National Park, this beautifully restored farmhouse (Masia) was completely rebuilt by an acclaimed Barcelona architect as a sustainable modern eco-villa, featuring a natural water pool, uber modern kitchen appliances, and chic decor throughout. The owners have taken great care in making every aspect of the home intuitive and comfortable, perfectly blending the spacious and sleek design of a modern home with rural charm. With 6 bedrooms, it is the ideal vacation home for friends and families, with a balance of contemporary design, sustainable architecture, and that feeling of "getting away from it all". Located just a 20min drive from Girona, it is easily accessible to restaurants and shops, however once you arrive, I don't think you'll be wanting to leave!
CP Villa boasts 5 modern bedrooms in the main house (sleeps 8) and 1 bedroom in its detached Annex (sleeps 2). There are 2 large living areas, a large kitchen, and 4 bathrooms. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a stand-alone bath-tub and shower. The decor is modern and each room is flooded with natural light.
