About our home

"Mas Peradalta" is a Fortified Masia (stone country house) dating from the 10th Century. The property is listed by the Catalan government as a historic monument of national interest. It was lovingly restored over 2 years by my architect wife Josie, combining all the modern conveniences with numerous period featues. The oldest part of the house is a 10th Century watch tower, now coverted into a snug room, with a galleried library above. The main house was built in the early 1600s, with the most recent extension (a chapel) built in 1730. The former chapel is now a large domed family play room, with the master bedroom suite above. The main house is over 12000 sq feet and comprises 8 bedrooms, many living areas, large double height kitchen, library, gym, and games room (pool and table tennins). Outside there are 30 acres of land, which is largely covered by hazelnut trees which provide a good crop of truffles each year. There is also a swimming pool and shaded pool relaxation area including an outside kitchen. There is a caretakers house next to the main house and Mircea our friendly caretaker will ensure that everything runs smoothly during your stay. Our excellent housekeeper Elena visits 5 mornings each week.

The house is completely secluded and extremely private, yet easily accessible. Mas Peradalta is located 25 minutes from Girona city, 25 minues from Girona Barcelona airport, 1 hour 20 minutes from Bacelona City and 45 minutes from the costa brava coast.

Girona is known for its historic old city, many first class restaurants (including Cellar de can roca which is only 15 minutes drive from Mas Peradalta), and the lush and scenic landscapes of the surrounding area.
