Character, tradition, excellence in a luxurious masia
Mas Torroella is a delightful 14th-century stone ‘masia’ sitting majestically within over 345 acres of meadows, pine hillsides and dense forests of cork oak. It enjoys a privileged and unique location that offers the peace and tranquillity of a very rural setting while enjoying the advantages of being just a ten minute drive away from some of the most beautiful, unspoilt beaches the Catalan coastline has to offer.
Spreading spaciously over three floors and tastefully restored to retain much of its original character, an abundance of exposed stone work, vaulted ceilings and timber beamed rooms combine to create an ambiance of rustic elegance that is complemented by an exquisite mixture of traditional and contemporary fabrics and furnishings.
As befitting a property of this stature, manicured lawns, colourful flower beds, lush shrubbery and mature trees grace the surrounding gardens, which boast a magnificently sized swimming pool that automatically converts from open-air pool to covered indoor pool at the click of a button.
For those seeking an idyllic holiday amid rolling countryside yet with coastal beauty spots such as Llafranc, Tamariu and Aiguablava close by, this masia on the Costa Brava, Spain, offers the perfect choice.
Set in a privileged elevated position at the top of the Gavarres hills, offering splendid panoramic views to the mountains, the sea and the Costa Brava area, Mas Torroella is a luxuriously restored 14th-century Catalan masia, combining modern decoration, the highest standard of elegance and comfort and the charm of the original building.
