Description

For up to 17 guests in 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. This very attractive restored 18thC farmhouse is enormous and quite luxurious, all rooms with private bathroom, several large living rooms, a well-equipped kitchen, the poolside covered BBQ area, a huge banquet & play room of over 120m2 and now with a brand new paddel tennis court. The fenced-in 9x4.5 meter swimming pool is icing on the cake. Situated just outside of Casserres, an agricultural town just 7 km west of Puig Reig and the main C-16 road between Barcelona and Toulouse.

Directly in front of the large main entrance to the house is a curious sort of patio: the front gate opening onto a solid block of natural bedrock onto which Can Cabanas was built back in the 18th century. To the right you have the fenced-in pool area, which has nice non-slip terra cotta tiling and a shower, and beyond the pool and lawn is a covered outdoor sitting and BBQ area for outdoor meals. On the other side of the pool you'll find the new paddel

For up to 17 guests in 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. This very attractive restored 18thC farmhouse is enormous and quite luxurious, all rooms with private bathroom, several large living rooms, a well-equipped kitchen, the poolside covered BBQ area, a huge banquet & play room of over 120m2 and now with a brand new paddel tennis court. The fenced-in 9x4.5 meter swimming pool is icing on the cake. Situated just outside of Casserres, an agricultural town just 7 km west of Puig Reig and the main C-16 road between Barcelona and Toulouse.

Directly in front of the large main entrance to the house is a curious sort of patio: the front gate opening onto a solid block of natural bedrock onto which Can Cabanas was built back in the 18th century. To the right you have the fenced-in pool area, which has nice non-slip terra cotta tiling and a shower, and beyond the pool and lawn is a covered outdoor sitting and BBQ area for outdoor meals. On the other side of the pool you'll find the new paddel tennis court.

Between the pool and the house the owners have converted an old shed into a huge designer banquet hall, measuring well over 100 m2, with good lighting. The banquet hall has plenty of seating, a dance floor, a large wooden bar (with sink and large fridge) and there is a nice fireplace. Around the house's perimeter wall there is a lot of wide open space where to kick around a football or just stroll.

The large wooden main doorway opens onto an atmospheric ground floor, measuring well over 120 m2, that sets the mood for what is to come. Again, much of this ground floor has been carved out of the living bedrock, with huge cornerstones supporting dramatically illuminated stone arches leading to a series of rooms: a vestibule from which the stairway goes up to the main living quarters, followed by the large ping-pong room flanked on one side by what used to be the cattle trough. On this ground floor level there is a small sitting area with a card table, and the washroom (with the washing machine, iron, and a hand-wash basin).

Upstairs the stone stairway opens onto the dining room, with wooden planked seating for up to 14 guests. To one side of the room is the entrance to the spacious kitchen, with large fridge, electric oven, gas stove, extractor, dishwasher, microwave, stick mixer, toaster, kettle, and lots of extras. Across from the kitchen there is a main floor bathroom for the common area, the only toilet that isn´t in a room. This toilet is off the main dining area in a sort-of separate glassed-in gallery with great views of the mountain range to the north. On the other side of the dining room is the contiguous living room, with a sofa and some lazy chairs, an cast iron fireplace, a TV video and DVD player, and a radio/cassette/CD player.

On this first floor are 3 of the 7 bedrooms. Working our way from left to right:

bedroom 1) painted yellow has two single beds (90x190cm) and private en suite full bathroom, with bathtub, sink and toilet

bedroom 2) painted light blue also has two single beds (90x190cm) and private en suite full bathroom

bedroom 3) in on the other side of house, just off the living room, and is a large master bedroom with double bed (150x190cm) and a single bed (90x180cm).

For privacy, there is a door closing off the stairway up to the second floor.

The upstairs consists of a large high-ceiling salon measuring over 60 m2 with two sofas (which in fact are double sofa beds), and several different sitting areas: a game table and chairs and a small library of most English best-sellers, as well as a large fireplace and TV and some speakers connected to the stereo downstairs. On either side of this salon are the other 4 rooms: working our way around clockwise:

bedroom 4) burnt yellow color en suite with (150x190cm) double bed

bedroom 5) burnt sienna color en suite with 2 (90x190cm) single beds

bedroom 6) light orange color en suite with (150x190cm) double bed

bedroom 7) light green color en suite with 2 (90x190cm) single beds

Important: the access to these bedrooms is through a small vestibule, to mitigate noise from the salon. As I mentioned earlier, the two sofas in the upstairs salon are fold out beds, and the owners have put in a good-sized closet so that anyone sleeping on the sofas will have where to keep their clothes. However, there are also fold out beds on offer for larger groups, and all the bedrooms are big enough to take an extra bed.

To sum up, Can Cabañas offers a very solid choice of rental property combining an attractive, practical house, all en suite bedrooms, with an excellent near-town location.

Location description from owner

The Catalonia region

Climate is always a factor when planning a holiday. Barcelona's average yearly temperature during the day is a very comfortable 19.5ºC (70ºF). With global warming and erratic weather generally, it's hard to say when it rains (in '97 and '98 it hardly rained at all, and local authorities are studying plans to divert water all the way from the Rhône in France), but usually there are a few days of rain in Autumn and Spring. Because of the sea, humidity is often a factor, exacerbating summer stickiness and winter chill, though today, January 30, 2000, it was 17ºC and the beaches were packed.

Barcelona is full of tourists year-round, especially now that the city hosts so many important trade shows and conventions. Travellers in August should know what a good part of the city shuts down for most of the month. (Goethe's dictum about Rome in August also holds true for Barcelona.) Nevertheless, I find the city especially seductive in summer, when the beaches are full, plenty of interesting traveller´s about, everybody taking it easy, and there is little to no traffic, so exploring the city is a joy. It is a time of year for long rests at terraced cafés... and at night you have the festivals in Gracia or in Sants.

Berga

Berga, 95 kms northwest of Barcelona, in the central Pyrenean foothills, a scenic area of dairy farms that has been popular with Barcelonans for years.

Situated just outside of Casserres, a small and sleepy but not unpleasant agricultural town just 7 kms west of Puig Reig and the main C-16 road between Barcelona and Toulouse, La Cabana is on the edge of town, which means you have privacy and lots of room to yourselves, but you can still walk or zip in town by car in minutes to shop or have a meal or a drink or pick up fresh croissants at the bakery for breakfast. Directly behind La Cabana is the town´s municipal pool and sports complex. The pool - with lifeguards on duty - is open only in summer months, and the complex includes a couple of pools, a football pitch, dressing rooms, and a small bar. This is a very welcome feature for kids, and daily entry fee is about 3 Euros. Perhaps the most stiking feature of this hilltop house are the lovely views of the Caplot and Berguedà mountains to the north.

“Excellent house and brilliant nearby treks and excursions”

Reviewed 6 Mar 2014

This really was a fantastic house. It was perfect for a large group. The group could spread comfortably on the 2 levels. We put those with kids all on the lower level all together, That saved us a few early starts and allowed us grown ups to chill out outside by the lovely pool until late. The kitchen is big and spacious, a godsend for preparing meals for up to 20 people! The views from the house are great and in about half an hour you can get up into the spectacular pyrennees. We did a couple of great treks, well signposted. For a family group or large group of friends I cant rate this property highly enough. The price to quality ratio is great. We loved it so much that we are even considering having our wedding party there!!
