Three buildings make up El Cosme. In addition to the restored farmhouse, there is also a 50m2 covered barn with a ping pong table and foosball table and a basketball hoop. The outdoor BBQ area right next to the pool, in front of the house, which has wooden planked seating for about 20, and a sink and counter for food prep and a refrigerator. Both the barn and the BBQ area have lights for night time meals/activity. There is a grassy lawn with some shade trees separating the house from the pool area, and behind the barn you’ll find a wide grassy area where the kids can kick around a football.

The main house: The front door opens on to the large ground floor living/dining/kitchen area. To the right you have the living room spread around the fireplace and 50" flat screen TV and stereo. The TV has a DVD player, and the little stereo has CD/radio/cassette and music can be piped into all the bedrooms upstairs. Every bedroom has a bedside knob for turning on and controlling the volume, so this house is wired!

Around the fireplace there are 2 sofas seating 3 each, 1 smaller sofa for 2, as well as 3 easy chairs. On the other side of the room is the long wooden planked dining table, seating about 20 guests. Around the staircase to the back of this large room is the kitchen, not a large kitchen but well-equipped, with fridge, glass ceramic hob, electric oven, extractor, microwave, dishwasher, juicer, toaster, expresso, stick mixer, etc.. The fridge is the normal 1.75 m variety, but there is a second fridge outdoors in the large covered bbq area.

The kitchen is sort of tucked in under the staircase, but beyond the kitchen there is a hall leading to the two downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms:

bedroom 1) has a big double bed (150 x 200cm). Bathroom 1 is just across the hall, not in the room itself. This is so as to have a bathroom for everyone to use downstairs and this is the only bathroom that isn't in fact in the bedroom itself. It has a large bathtub.

bedroom 2) is at the end of the hall, with 2 single beds (90x200cm) and a private bathroom with half bathtub/shower.

Upstairs the first floor has a large central sitting area with another 42" TV with DVD player, a sofa for 3, two easy chairs, and a card table with 6 chairs. There are a couple of large windows, one overlooking the pool area, and the other one with great views of the magnificent mountains directly behind the house. Just off this central room is

bedroom 3) with double bed (150x200cm) and private bathroom with half bathtub/shower.

And then down the hall towards the back of the house there are four bedrooms:

bedrooms 4) and 5) are somewhat larger rooms with double bed (150x200cm) and private bath with half bathtub/shower.

bedrooms 6) and 7) have two single beds (90x200cm) with private bathroom and half bathtub/shower.

Some of these rooms have quite handsome exposed stone walls, and the bathrooms, while not large, all have nice tile work.

Upstairs the second floor of the house consists of a suite measuring about 50 m2, with a private salon with a central table seating 6.

bedroom 8) is large and with a double bed (150x200cm), and bathroom beyond with half bathtub/shower.

All rooms in the house are external with windows and have nice views, with double glazing, insect screens, and wooden shutters to keep out the light for sleeping in late. The decoration is sparse (which is often desirable in a rental house) but the walls are painted with warm ochre and burnt red colors, and the lighting is new and well done. All in all, I think this is just the sort of house many of you are looking for. Private, lots of room indoors and out, great views, and reasonable rental rates, between €28 in high-season to just €17 per person per night in low-season, all included.

Send in an enquiry and I'll send you more info, including our testimonials from past guests.

Location description from manager

The Catalonia region

Location: the most important consideration for most of you is that El Cosme is located just over an hour from Barcelona and the coast. However, this property is situated in a truly beautiful part of Spain, just below the modernist Sanctuary of Mare de Deu de Queralt. Specifically, El Cosme is located 12 kms southwest of Bergà, the historic provincial capital of the region. The nearest villages are Capolat and Espunyola, about 4 kms away. There is a good restaurant, Cal Mayoral, a short (1 km) walk from the house, with a 14 Euro daily all included menu. The area has an excellent infrastructure with plenty of shopping nearby, from small mom and pop shops to large supermarket chains..

Capolat

From my 20 page local guidebook:

....Located between Berga and Sant Llorenç de Morunys and bordering with the county of Solsonès in the west, Capolat lies high among the peaks of Rasos de Peguera, the Serra dels Lladres, the Serra del Tossal and the Capolat precipices. The fact that a large part of the territory is covered by forests of pine, oak and holm oak explains why forestry continues to be one of Capolat's most important economic activities. In recent years there has also been a great increase in cattle, sheep and pig farming, and potatoes, corn and sweetcorn are also cultivated locally. The dispersed and sharply declining population of this isolated municipality is distributed among the parishes of Capolat and Taravil to the west, where there are currently very few inhabited houses; Coforb to the east; Sant Andreu-Farners in the central part of the municipality; and Llinars, a parish shared with Castellar del Riu. The village owes its existence to the castle of Capolat, one of the nine castles of the old mayoralty of Cardona. The dukes of Cardona historically held civil and criminal jurisdiction over this land and its inhabitants. Evidence of its ancient past can still be seen in a number of interesting Romanesque churches and farmhouses. Just two of the many religious buildings scattered across this municipality are the small Romanesque churches of Sant Serni dels Terrers (documented as early as the 9th century and modified in the 18th century) and Sant Andreu de la Serreta (11th-12th century). Some fine examples from the Baroque period include Sant Martí de Capolat, Sant Martí de Coforb and the tiny Sant Quintí de Taravil, with an altarpiece dating back to 1779.

“El Cosme has set a new standard for our hollidays, everything you wish for at an excellent price !”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2016

We (10 adults and 10 kids) absolutely enjoyed our stay at El Cosme. We have stayed in more then a dozen large holliday villas throughout Europe, and El Cosme has set a new standard. Large clean bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a poolside covered terrace with fridge, a pool with a stunning view, a perfectly kept lawn, a covered barn with ping-pong and football table, a unique sense of privacy in the middle of nature and so much more. I have verry fond memories of our group sitting around a tripod with a huge pan of patatas bravas on top. The region around El Cosme is unspoiled by mass tourism, but offers more then enough intresting towns and cities to visit and stunning nature to enjoy. Be sure to check out Pont de Pedret for a dive in the cool water under this magnificent medieval bridge.
