Dating originally from the 17th Century the house or 'Can' as it would have been called sits on approximately 1/2 acre of natural garden with a river running along its boundary. The garden is good for a game of boules or badmington and has a walled area with a BBQ and table and chairs for outdoor dining.
This rustic Catalan farmhouse is generously proportioned with large living quarters spread over three floors. The Ground Floor, where the pigs, cows, bull, rabbits, chickens and the donkey previously lived, now consists of two comfortable living rooms with original vaulted ceilings and a further large L shaped room. This room serves as another living room and has a reading corner, or for the young at heart even a dancefloor!

The Living rooms are furnished with large comfortable sofas and chairs upholstered in red and beige and having a distinctive oriental and far east flavour. The second living room has a card/games table as well as a large teak cupboard which houses a TV, CD/casette player and a large assortment of videos.

The formal entrance hall is arrived at through a 2ft thick stone doorway. The thick walls keep the rooms cool during the hot summers and warm in the winters. Through another archway there is a long room with 3 large granite containers dating from the 1600's. These decorative features were originally used to press grapes and store both the wine and olive oil produced by the family. The wet room is located in this area.
To the right of the central salon on the first floor is the Dining/Breakfast room where you can eat or sit on comfy sofas and watch TV beside a roaring fire (for those of you who wish to stay during the winter months of course!). The well equipped Kitchen has an electric ceramic hob and oven, microwave, 4 slice toaster, electric kettle, blender etc.etc. An antique French Armoire houses a large collection of Danish Blue for large dinner parties or simply 'High Tea'. Just off the kitchen is one of the two covered terraces with lovely views of the neighbours' allotments.
Off the central Salon are 4 Bedrooms, 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and a rather unique one which has been created in the hayloft. From the hayloft through a wide archway there is a further room which can be curtained off to provide another sleeping area or a sitting/dressing/reading room. The hayloft has a rather openplan ensuite and a loo with a view! All the bedrooms are individually decorated e.g. the French room or 'Jugenstil' room to mention two.
The appropriately named 'Jamaica Suite' occupies the second floor with its King size Mahogany bed and numerous Jamaican prints. In the en-suite bathroom, the Victorian style double ended bath on ball and claw feet takes pride of place. The washing machine is also located in this bathroom as the patio off this bedroom doubles up as the open air drying area.
