Casa Alerny is a vineyard for production of wine and olive oil from the 15th century, which is now reformed and let out as a holiday home with swimming pool. The surrounding wine- and olive fields are still cultivated by the Cedo-family, who now live in Barcelona. The harvest is sold to some of the big and famous producers in the nearby Priorat district.
The beautiful view over the vineyards, the olive trees and the impressive mountains La Serra de Llaberia in the horizon can be enjoyed from the extensive terrace and from the pool area. The house is privately situated on the top of a small hill and with only 600 meters walk to the village La Serra D´Almos.
The house has 4 double rooms (8 persons) included in the price, which have own bathrooms and are situated on the main floor of the house. 3 addtional bedrooms and two bathrooms are available for bigger groups on the second floor. The price per extra bedrooms is 200 Euros/bedroom/week.
Distribution of the house: You enter the house from the charming courtyard by a stairway to the main floor. To the left, the 4 double rooms are distributed on both side of the aisle, three of them with bathrooms ensuite. To the right, you find the modern kitchen with dining area, and if you go straight on, you enter the enormous living room with dining area, TV-corner and fireplace. There is a great view.
From this room, you can enter the very extensive terrace with a covered part, in case you prefer shadow. There is a BBQ available and also a table tennis. The terrace gives a very authentic Catalan atmosphere. From the terrace, there is a stairway down to the pool area. You will need to pass a gate, so it is very secure if you bring small children. The pool area is a very nice place to relax in the sun loungers, and a great place for the children to have fun.
On the second floor, there are three additional bedrooms, which can be let as well, to extend the capacity to 14 persons.
