A grand and exclusive equestrian and sporting estate
Mas Mateu, an 18th century Spanish estate with a world-class equestrian centre has retained all the grandeur and style associated with its pedigree while remaining accessible and pampering, offering all the luxuries and comfort one expects from an establishment of this kind.
The main house comfortably sleeps 25 guests, making it ideal for a private family getaway or intimate wedding. A graceful, arched doorway leads into a series of inviting lounges, with magnificent views over the Emporda and the Pyrenees. Cool alabaster walls frame the grand salon’s majestic fireplace.
Each bedroom is distinctively decorated in delicate tones. Sink into a deliciously deep oval bath, surrounded by glass walls that open onto the surrounding forest, or enjoy a truly Catalan dining experience – a Spanish banquet freshly prepared by the in-house chef under the stars on one of the many open terraces or in the elegant dining room.
The property is home to Southern Europe’s leading equestrian facilities, headed up by a member of Spain’s highly regarded dressage training team. One of the world’s finest facilities for training dressage horses, the centre can stable up to ten horses and boasts a 70- by 30-metre, all-weather covered track, a 70 by 30-metre outdoor track, a warm-up and lunging arena, six paddocks, spectator stands for up to 100 people, several acres of fields and living quarters for trainers.
Mas Mateu’s other extensive sport and leisure facilities include a dedicated swimming-pool complex, gym, football pitch, basketball court, paddle court, an outdoor barbecue, a summer kitchen housed in an ancient barn, and a cinema.

Mas Mateu is located in an area called the golden triangle, so named for three reasons:
• Proximity to one of the most beautiful coasts of the Mediterranean: the Costa Brava (less than 10 km, 6.5 miles). On the Costa Brava you will find the region’s top beaches: Cadaques, Aiguablava Begur, Sa Tuna Begur, and Platja Castells Palamos
• The natural reserve (Les Gavarres) that stretches from the coast to the capital of the province, Girona.
• The culture and history of the area; there are plenty of well-preserved medieval villages, such as Peratallada and Pals which are a UNESCO heritage.
The province of Emporda borders France in the north; to its east is the Mediterranean; Girona, its local capital lies to the west and in the south is Barcelona.
