Style and seclusion go hand in hand at Mas Torroella, a luxury villa & spa nestled quietly in the shade of the Gavarres mountains, just off the sunny beaches of Costa Brava.

Dating back to the 14th century, the historic Catalan masia has been thoughtfully restored by its owners and transformed into a refined rental retreat for friends and families looking to spend some precious quality time together.

Masia in Catalonia

Tucked into a beautiful slice of nature, in the Girona province, the property is bursting with rustic Catalan charm and has all the right ingredients to whip up a vacation to remember. Interiors are a chic blend of tradition and modernity, where original features have been lovingly preserved and left exposed to showcase the history and unique architecture of the building.

Classic period furnishings intermingle with chic contemporary accents beneath vaulted hand-painted ceilings and blanched wooden beams, while the handsome stonework throughout gives the classy ambiance an authentic medieval flare.

Spread over three floors, Mas Torroella sleeps up to 20 guests in 8 individually styled bedrooms, each with its own personality and private ensuite bathroom. Awash in calming cream shades, their tasteful decor is complemented by romantic touches like fresh flowers, candles, and gracious welcome packs.

Also on the grounds of Mas Torroella, albeit separated from the main house, La Casetta is the ideal retreat for couples or small families seeking added privacy. Once the Groundsman’s cottage, this independent unit is designed following the same adorable rustic-chic aesthetic, featuring two inviting bedrooms and a serene open-plan kitchen/living/dining area.
