Masia Escalopa is a lovely holiday home just 56 km. from Barcelona. The house stands out as the outdoor area is so well distributed. The house itself is sort of situated on the top of the village overlooking the village and the stunning landscape. From here you have a large sort of terrace area with swimming pool, sunbeds, covered terrace, BBQ Zone with another dining table, swings, table tennis and here you will also find a tiny kitchen with kitchen utensils and tableware for outdoor dining, so you do not have to go to the upstairs kitchen when dining on the terrace. In the lower garden is a huge area for parking and a view point with a bench and a swing placed in the shadow overlooking the stunning scenery.

Catalonia: The region has vacation houses of very high standard, carefully nursed by the owners, as they have been in the family for centuries, previously used for labour in the days where agriculture needed more man-power, with all facilities you could think of, inside as well as outside. So many of the days, you can leave the car in the carport and spend the time with playing, swimming, reading and some nice meals from the barbecue accompanied with a glass of wine.
The landscape at the entrance to the Pyrenees is dominated by small rivers, hills, fields and forest. From almost any point, you have view to the steep Pyrenees that raise in the distance, probably some of the most beautiful mountains of the world. The area provides excellent conditions for a variety of sports- and outdoor activities, such as hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, angling, canoeing or river crafting.
