Can Sant Joan is a luxury rental house in the middle of a forested nature preserve close to Barcelona and the Costa Brava in Spain. It consists of two separate houses: The Villa and The Catalan House, plus a beautiful swimming pool and 2 BBQ areas.
Can Sant Joan is a 3.5 hectares secluded luxury rental finca located on a very quiet and private location out in the middle of a forested nature preserve close to Barcelona in Spain. It is located between Barcelona city and la Costa Brava and close to La Roca Village outlet. The property benefits from the fact that there are no surrounding properties ensuring complete privacy and a tranquil setting for your holiday. The Can Sant Joan finca consists of two separate houses, The Villa, a high-quality fully air conditioned vacation house inaugurated in June 2008, and The Catalan House, a smaller but comfortable house built after the Catalan farmhouse style.
While Casa Sant Juan is close to Barcelona and the coast, the property is in fact situated just off a nice little-transited country road (the C-1415c) favored by local bicycle aficionados, with some small farms and a few country restaurants and a nicely keep wooded park with sea views just up the road from the house. The town of La Roca is a market town and very good for shopping. There is even a famous shopping mall with outlets for discounted brand-name clothes. The property is only 30 minute drive away from Barcelona and 15 minute away to the beaches of Mataró. For those who prefer public transportation, it has access to two commuter train lines to Barcelona nearby: La Roca or Mataró, with half an hour frequencies.
The two houses are about 100 meters up a private fully paved road from the main gate at kilometer 12 of the C-1415c. The wooded property of mostly pines and holm oak is naturally preserved, except the nicely landscaped garden backing the pool, with local trees, flowers, and a herb garden. There are very nice views of the luxury swimming pool from The Villa, and the pool has 8 lounge chairs, a shower and a small toilet.
Each of the houses has its own dedicated parking space and thatch covered BBQ dinning/sitting areas. From the front of The Villa you can see The Catalan House just 50 meters up the hill, but mostly hidden by the woods. Outside it is very quiet, with the sound of birdsong and the wind in the trees. Worth mentioning are the nice views to the north, which include the mighty Montseny mountain range.
