Our house is in Arbúcies. The house is a large restored 4 storey house (lots of stairs!)in a quaint Catalan village. It has the original beams and is decorated in a country style mixing the old with the new. The kitchen and living room area is 45m2. There are bathrooms on all floors. There is a double and single bedroom and family bathroom on the top/3rd floor, another single bedroom, WC and the living area and kitchen on the 2nd floor and the 1st floor is an independent apartment that is sometimes rented out to very quiet local folk. We have a beautiful roof terrace with table and chairs, chillout zone, electric grill, mini kitchen and beautiful views over the Montseny mountains. Perfect for a great holiday!
