About this listing
MAS TORROELLA is a luxuriously restored fourteenth century farmhouse, which combines modern decor, the highest level of elegance and comfort and the charm of the original building. It has its own spa,sauna, gym, tennis court, and swimming-pool.
This grand 14th Century Catalan manor house offers a unique opportunity to experience elegance, luxury and tradition in a beautiful and unsurpassable peaceful location.
An imposing property, Mas Torroella stands in acres of rolling countryside where uplands of dense forest contrast with verdant, flowering meadows to create a real life landscape oil painting. From the large first floor sun terrace, views of the sparkling azure Mediterranean stretching out into the distant horizon remind us that this essentially rural setting is but a 10 minute drive from some of the most picturesque and unspoilt coastal beauty spots to be found along the Catalan coastline; Aigua Blava, Tamariu and Llafranc to name but a few.
As one would expect of a property that has been so lovingly restored over a 24 year period, great care has been taken to retain all the original features. Rib-vaulted and Baroque style painted ceilings, mullioned windows and exposed stone all subtly combine with an exquisite mixture of traditional and contemporary fabrics and furnishings to create a stunning masterpiece that cannot fail to delight.
Extending over three floors, this is an impressive property that exudes comfort and quality. Equipped with the most up-to-date of fittings and appliances, the layout of the interior offers an abundance of sumptuously furnished rooms that open out of each other like a series of ornate jewellery-boxes. Each well proportioned bedroom enjoys en suite facilities and air conditioning whilst a selection of stylish sitting rooms, a snooker room, TV room and library afford a level of intimacy for all, making this an ideal venue for large groups of family and friends. Perhaps the most impressive area is that of the spa which is home to an indoor heated swimming pool with incorporated Jacuzzi, a Finnish sauna and a fitness room.
We have yet to venture outdoors!
Externally, immaculate lawns, colourful flower beds and lush shrubbery are complimented by a superb swimming pool. Numerous shaded corners, sun terraces, a poolside pergola, barbecue and outdoor dining areas adorn the grounds making them perfect for relaxing in during the day or by romantic candlelight in the evening. For larger groups the separate self contained cottage or ‘caseta’ which sits on the other side of the entrance courtyard provides additional accommodation and the same exquisite sense of style as is found in the main house.
Golf, sandy beaches, cycle routes and walking trails are just some of the activities that can be enjoyed in the surrounding area and even the 4km drive down a rustic track that leads from the property to the local supermarket is a pleasure as one takes in the delightful, ever changing vistas of “mar y montaña” and savours the faint scent of pine, wild broom, lavender and rosemary.

This place would love your review
When you book this place, here’s where your review will show up!
Mas Torroella was built in the XIV century. When my father bought it in 1989 it was an abandoned stone ruin crying to be loved and cared for by somebody... And he spent most of his life rebuilding it, investing all his love and passion to create his dream. When my father passed away, my husband and I decided to fulfill his dream and complete the restoration... now our historic masia has been turned into a charming luxury villa & spa.
Most of our guests agree that you can feel peace, tranquility and love inside and outside our house. We are proud of it and must admit that, after a long and hard period of restoration, it has been worthwhile.
We have really put lots of effort and lots of love in restoring it... and I hope this can be seen in the result...
I am sure the Villa will be up to your standards and that you will be able to enjoy the holiday you have wished for, here with us in the Costa Brava.
We will do our best to make it happen!
