What we like about this property

Striking a lovely balance between old and new, this beautifully crafted former farmhouse has been given a chic modern update that showcases the meticulous craftsmanship and artful use of contrasting materials. We love the simple, understated design that allows the elemental beauty of the house and the knockout views to take center stage.

Description

Set on a hilltop with breathtaking views across the Gavarres mountains and out to the Mediterranean in the distance, this ancient farmhouse was rescued from ruin by Catalan firm Zest Architecture and restored with a vivid and stylish new personality. Surrounded by over sixty acres of private forest and thousands of hectares of protected park land, it’s secluded and very peaceful. 

The structure’s original rustic appearance was required by Catalan law to be maintained and has been seamlessly restored with it’s traditional character intact. Set on a slope, the two story structure’s stone façade is punctuated with protruding oversized rusted steel-framed windows that capture the incredible views over the landscape that stretches for miles.

Designed as a sustainable modern family home, the architects used Corten steel, wood, and hypo-allergenic clay instead of plaster as well as cork from the land for insulation, geothermal temperature control and natural water catchment and reed filtration in the restoration. Significantly enlarging and brightening the interiors, the upper floor now includes the open plan gourmet kitchen and dining area with bi-fold doors that open out to the massive upper terrace and gardens and the main living room with a fireplace overlooking the views. Cool and modern, the polished concrete, lofty beamed ceilings, striking steel stairway and minimalist style is paired with vivid textiles and classic mid-century furniture and fixtures that bring it to life.

The four bedrooms are located on the lower level, which is partially sunk into the hill’s slope keeping them cool on hot summer days and sleep up to eight. All of the bathrooms are fitted with exquisite Bisazza tiles and there’s a unique outdoor wet room, lit by punctuated steel doors that open out to the gardens. 

The lush grounds are meticulously maintained with native Mediterranean plants and areas for lounging in the hammocks with a shaded alfresco dining and BBQ area next to the pool overlooking the spectacular views. This chic holiday home pairs stylish modern luxury with traditional Catalonian charm in an unforgettable setting.  

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout with computer for guest use, TV with DVD-Player with DVD collection for kids and adults, stereo audio system, telephone, a Google map for mobile phones with the best restaurants in the region to make reservations, get driving directions, etc. Coco-Mat “Emperor” bed (2m wide!) in the master suite and high quality new latex mattresses in all other rooms with hypo-allergenic duvets, linens and pillows.

Disabled access to most parts of the house and gardens with property-wide security system.  

AROUND

Set within thousands of hectares of Gavarres national park land in Catalonia, there are hundreds of paths to discover in the surrounding forest just outside of the property for hiking, cycling and exploring. A mix of thousand year old cork and pine forest, the area is home to Catalonia’s highest peak Puig d’Arques, as well as the Mare de Déu dels Àngels and Santa Pellaia. The Costa Brava’s beaches and nearby Girona are under thirty minutes drive from the property. A stylish medieval city with fabulous restaurants, shops, bars and  cafes, historic Girona sits along the River Onyar and features beautiful medieval architecture and the walled Old Quarter (Barri Vell) with Roman remains of the Força Vella fortress. Perpignan is an attractive French market town just ninety minutes north and the medieval town of Vic is an hour west along the breathtaking (c25) road. Andorra in the Pyrenees is two hours northwest and  Barcelona is an hour south. There are several charming villages around the estate with farmers’ markets, shops and cafe’s ten minutes away.

NotesThere is disabled access to most parts of the house and garden. The house is ideal for families although it is important to note that very small children who can't swim must be carefully supervised at all timesbecause the pool is not protected by a fence.
The nearest shops, banks and a farmers' market are 10 mins by car.
The Gavarres natural park is a mixed forest of cork and pine that has been here for thousands of years. The house looks out to the sea over a beautiful green landscape that stretches for miles and miles. The house has its own garden and also 25 hectares (60 acres) of private forest for you to explore. Walk or cycle along shaded paths and you're unlikely to come across anyone else for hours. And beyond, there are literally thousands of hectares of the Gavarres, guaranteeing fresh air, scented warm evenings and lots of peace and quiet.
Owners are also available by phone or SMS for any questions you have.

    Villa CP is a unique property. Amazing private location. Gorgeous pool and gardens. Very tranquil. Especially loved picking organic produce for our meals. Great kitchen! Inspiring architecture. Lovely surrounding area with everything you need 20-30mins away. We only ventured out once as loved being at the villa. Great host. Totally recommend.

    Guy met us at arrival and introduced us to a magical oasis. When we had minor questions throughout the week, he was attentive and reponsive, even helping to arrange a 75th dinner celebration with chefs from Barcelona. Our group-aged 1 to 75-were all comfortable. The pool is divine as well as the outdoor showers. An architectural gem, coming from an aesthetic snob!

    We went with the whole family to spend a few days in November. My 65-year-old parents, my 35-year-old sister, my brother-in-law and I agreed that it was one of the most spectacular family weekends we have ever had. A privileged environment where time stops and nobody wants to leave. The house is spectacular, the design is taken care of down to the smallest detail and its owners make everything ready for the guests. Not missing anything, everything is worthy of a 5 star hotel. And when night falls, that sky so full of stars over the immensity of the natural park overwhelms you. An ideal place to contact nature, breathe and enjoy a few days as a family. We will be back!

Eine bis ins Detail durchdachte Architektur, mit inspirierenden Sichtachsen in die Natur, eine gepflegte Außenanlage, gekrönt mit einem Naturpool der Extraklasse, charakterisieren diese Oase in der Nähe von Girona. Eine Wohlfühladresse die zum Wiederkommen verführt. Ein besonderer Dank gilt dem Gastgeber Guy, der sich fürsorglichst um alle Belange kümmert. A bientot.

A feel-good address that seduces you to come back. Special thanks go to the host Guy, who takes care of all concerns. See you soon.

    I found treasure! A rare event when a property exceeds the photographs that are used to promote it! A stunning villa in stunning location. Fantastic location for Girona and surrounding areas. Guy and team go to great lengths to ensure you have the best time – guides to great restaurants, things to do and even practical notes on how to get the best out of your stay. Thoroughly recommended.

    This house, in a spectacular location, exceeds any idea you can have with the photos or explanations, incredibly ecological in its construction and use, it gives immense pleasure to know that, without any inconvenience for your stay, you are helping a better world . The peace, tranquility and silence that is enjoyed, in the middle of a natural park is impossible to achieve in 99% of places, and at the same time so close to the beach, airport, restaurants, the best golf club in southern Europe, where they play the championships to get the European circuit cards. A great pleasure, I will return. Thanks to Guy and Monica for their service and friendliness.

    We had a great week at the villa. We really appreciated the design and layout of the villa and its fabulous setting. Great place just to sit, relax and read and take in the views and be serenaded by cuckoos and golden orioles. Near enough to Girona and local towns for excursions and within easy reach of the beaches. We would love to visit again!

    Great host, beautiful and clean house in a good location with a stunning view. Guy was quick and helpful. Provided us a Bluetooth speaker, helped to set up a fireplace. Also he had suggestions about events and restaurants. Definitely recommend.

    We were lucky to be able to rent this one of a kind villa for a week. The design and details were beautiful and very well thought out. The view, pool, kitchen, bedrooms and common areas so easy to settle in to. Girona is one of our favorite cities too. Hope to be back and stay longer. Thank you Guy and Co it couldn’t have been better!

    We had a wonderful stay at the villa – beautiful architecture in a tranquil environment. The views are amazing, perfect for a quiet and relaxing vacation. Guy is a thoughtful host and his hospitality makes this a wonderful stay. The villa is an easy drive from Girona with its gastronomic delights. We would love to visit again!

    Our family loved CP Villa. The house looks great in pictures, but is even better in real life. The views are outstanding and the strategically placed large windows make it easy to enjoy at all hours of the day. The house was extremely comfortable, stylish and full of everything we needed, much more than we expected. An electric piano, guitar, foozball table and pingpong table, as well as a stellar infinity pool, kept our 6 and 8 year old as happy as could be. Foraging for oranges and strawberries, chasing butterflies and lizards, looking for frogs and turtles were also popular activities. The outdoor shower was a treat and used by all. The kitchen is obviously designed by someone who likes to cook. It was very well stocked with utensils and cookware compared to other rentals we have stayed at. Guy, the host, was very attentive and accommodating. He also pointed out a good hiking trail for our family and we were able to get some exercise! Thank you Guy for a wonderful week and we do hope to be back again – and next time for longer!

    We have just returned from the most incredible week at Villa CP. There really was nothing to fault.  To start with the location was incredible – the views out over the hills, the epic sunrises and the sheer sense of quiet and remoteness, was the best medicine after a mental year in London. Guy couldn’t have been more helpful, purchasing baby cots and high chairs for the babies, and the older kids (3 years) loved seeing the frogs in the swimming pool, lounging on the Fat Boys and attempting to play table football! The decor was beautiful, just to our taste, very simple and stylish, no faff. We’ve even taken a few pictures of things that we can implement back in our flat in London – some very clever storage solutions! The master suite was 10/10 – we’ve stayed in lots of nice hotels, but I think this was the best ever! especially the bath, which we got all 4 kids in and the outdoor shower! This is the perfect place to have a stylish, relaxing holiday, despite having very young children. The local beaches were fab, and the kids even had their first Michellin star experience (spoilt rotten!) Thank you Guy – we’re 100% coming again next year! We went mid September and the weather was perfect for the babies (3 months) I would highly recommend going at the beginning / end of the season with young children, otherwise the heat might be a little too much.

    Villa CP is a truly wonderful house and the views are exceptional. The house is cool and spacious. The kitchen is well designed and fabulously easy to use. What could be better than foraging in the garden for tomatoes, figs, lemons and melons. A special thank you for that Guy – we really did love those figs! The natural swimming pool is lovely and there were often little frogs basking around its perimeter. We had four 18-20 year old boys who all totally loved the house. They enjoyed playing table tennis, swimming, marathaon monopoly sessions, and lots of eating and sleeping! They also enjoyed trips to the nearby water park, Girona (location of Game of Thrones Season 6!) and a night out in Barcelona.. There are some great beaches nearby and pretty villages. So plenty to do if you want to explore the area. The roads are bendy though so our outings were mainly during the day.  A dream house. We can’t wait to go back.

    Holy moly this place is perfect. Currently counting pennies in order to buy it away from Guy and Co. Where to begin: the view is glorious; the frog-filled infinity pool is the future (no shower before bed when you’re not swimming in chemicals); the made-for-the-movies Nancy Meyers kitchen (two sinks, every gadget you could dream of, a futuristic hob that was literally fun to use); geo-thermally cooled inside air; big, comfy beds and rainforest showers; a thoughtful website that completely reflects their thoughtful approach to living and attention to detail.   It was also just great meeting Guy who made us dinner when we arrived about 4 hours late because of a flight delay, as well as answered all of my text questions within seconds. When I confused our departure date he even invited us to spend the night in his Barcelona home. Only fault I can find is that their place is so nice I’ve been embarrassed to show any of the ten million pictures I took to friends for fear they will hate us.   Thank you Guy and Co — can’t wait to do it all over again next summer.

    Our group of adult family and friends enjoyed a glorious week at this gorgeous villa, tucked away in the hilltops of Santa Pellaia. The beds were super comfortable, and the tiled bathrooms were beautiful. The kitchen was large enough for all 8 of us to prepare meals of fresh fish, calamari and prawns from the local markets. (The BBQ was well-appreciated too.) And of course, the main draw for everyone on our hot hot hot August days was the natural lily-filtered pool! The house remained cool, due to the water-cooled flooring, and large fans. (The annex, with futon, while very private and lovely, didn’t cool off on these hot days.) The mountain bikes, foosball and ping pong tables, and pool gave us plenty to do (when we could rouse ourselves to do anything other than relax in the plentiful loungers and hammocks). Guy was very quick to respond to any issues or questions.  We highly recommend Villa CP, and hope to return.

    Located on top of the mountain, behind the church in a forgotten village resting on the slope facing the Mediterranean Sea. In splendid seclusion surrounded by wild pine forest, cork trees and vineyards. Winding mountain roads leading west and east. In this beautifully converted ruin you’ll find inner peace and the perks of a vegetable garden and fruit trees providing a fresh slice of lemon to go in your icy vermouth & tonic by the pool. I cannot imagine a more peaceful or soulful place to enjoy a family vacation. Rise at dawn and go for a run before the sun (and the kids) rises too high above the horizon. Take a dip in the natural water pool and contemplate over a morning coffee. Girona is a short drive away, Barcelona a mere hour. Food, wine, culture, world class golf course, cycling, beaches, shopping, adventure, France – everything within easy reach. This is getaway luxury at its best. We spent three weeks in the house without ever really wanting to leave. A three week long slice of heaven. The owners, Guy & Co, are the most amiable people you’ll ever meet. Obviously with good taste. Thx for opening your house for us.

    We had a wonderful time, hardly left the property in fact because everything was just perfect. It was easy to get around everywhere, we felt like we never wanted to go home.

    Hemos pasado unos días maravillosos. La casa tiene todas las comodidades que se pueden imaginar y las vistas de la Costa Brava y del parque natural de las Gavarres son impresionantes. Es el lugar ideal para desconectar, y disfrutar de la naturaleza con los niños. Seguro que repetiremos!

    So many luxury holiday rentals share a comfortable but very predictable look and feel. This one turns that norm on its head in a stunning setting by offering thoughtful, contemporary originality round every corner. The pool area is amazing – as are the gorgeously finished interiors. A one-off experience we’re looking to do for a second time very soon.

    We’ve stayed here with our family on a number of occasions. ‘Private mountain paradise’ really is a perfect description of the house. Looking out over woods and rolling hills with barely another house in sight it’s completely secluded, yet only 20 mins drive from the airport at Girona. The house itself is breath-taking. Every detail has been thought through so that the space, fittings and furnishings are both beautiful and functional, and all of the highest quality. The house and gardens blends with the surroundings and are sensitive to the environment, yet also totally luxurious. At the same time, it feels like a real home rather than a commercial rental. We plan to go back as soon as we can!

  • One of the things I will never forget is that fabulous kitchen. Standing at the island, with a bubbling pan and a glass of cold white wine, watching the kids playing in the pool, is an abiding memory.

  • Dit huis behoort absoluut tot de beste van Spanje! Natuurlijke en duurzame materialen met een zeer stijlvolle, eigentijdse inrichting. Prachtig gelegen in een hele serene omgeving met schitterend uitzicht richting Middellandse Zee. Ook de groenvoorziening rondom het huis is adembenemend mooi. Absolute aanrader!!!
