After some kilometres on the quiet road through the Tuscany-style landscape with vineyards as far as the eye can see, CAN PUIGNOLL emerges on a small hill top down a side road.
From the moment you enter the property, you feel the tranquillity and the sounds of nature, which will make your vacation relaxing and stress reducing. In the garden, the sunshine makes its way through the treetops of the shady trees in the garden. Below the house, the pool area with the very large swimming pool (6 x 12 meters), has a perfect view over the hills and the vineyards, the first starting rigt at the end of the pool area. The house has been completely renovated and modernized to the smallest detail, respecting the original structure of the typical Catalan farmhouse. It has now a capacity of up to 11+2 persons.
Lay out of Can Puignoll: The house is perfectly structured, with the lower floor being a very spacious common room with an excellent modern kitchen, a dining area with dining table and a sofa area with TV, DVD and fireplace. On this floor there is one bedroom with single beds and one bathroom. There is also direct access to the terrace with barbecue in the garden, which is very convenient, when you want to dine outside in the warm Catalan summers. Upstairs, you find the four remaining bedrooms, all of a very high standard and with bathrooms ensuite. Three of the bedrooms are double rooms with double beds and the fourth room is a triple room. The children with love the place with its many activities, for instance table tennis and table football and the swimming pool of course. As the total property covers 6000m2, there is plenty of space to play, and if they feel like it, they can visit the animals on the owners’ farm 1 km. away.
The surronding area and activities: You can almost feel the sea breeze coming in from the Mediterranean Sea, which is only a short 25 km. drive away and as the crow flies, even shorter. Hence it is easy to drive down to feel the sand between the toes or perhaps pay a visit to El Vendrell, where the famous catalan musician and pacifist Pau Casals is honoured by a spectacular museum in his house.
