New Exclusive Villa Rental – Mas Mateu Farmhouse in Catalonia
Spain’s finest property is now available for exclusive rental in the lush vineyards in Catalonia in northeastern Spain. For the first time ever, Mas Mateu, one of the finest privately owned properties in Spain, is available for rental. Owned by one of Spain’s most distinguished families, the property has undergone an extensive refurbishment lead by a hand-picked team of architects, interior designers and landscape planners.
Originally built as a grand estate over 400 years ago, Mas Mateu has been exquisitely restored to its former grandeur, blending centuries-old traditional features with a host of state of the art amenities. Situated amongst the undulating Gavarran mountains, in the heart of Girona, the main house is nestled within a sprawling 173 acre forested estate, ensuring complete privacy.
The vacation rental sleeps twenty, with additional staff quarters, making it ideal for a private family getaway, intimate wedding or an informal house party. A graceful arched doorway leads into a series of inviting lounges, with magnificent views over the snow-capped Pyrenees, ideal for relaxing with friends. Cool alabaster walls frame the grand salon’s majestic fireplace, making it the perfect place to curl up with your favourite book.
Dining is a truly Catalan experience at Mas Mateu. Enjoy a Spanish banquet, freshly prepared by the in-house private chef, under the stars on one of the many open terraces or eat in the elegant dining room. The region is also home to some of the most celebrated restaurants in Spain, including El Bulli and El Celler de Can Roca, ideal for those rare moments you feel like venturing outside the estate.
The luxury villa is home to Southern Europe’s leading equestrian facilities which has played host to Spain’s highly regarded national dressage team. One of the world’s finest facilities for training dressage horses, the centre can stable up to ten horses and houses a 70×30 metre all weather covered track, a 70×30 metre outdoor track, a round track for warming up and horse lunging, six paddocks, stands for up to 100 spectators, several acres of fields and living quarters for trainers.
Those who prefer not to ride can take advantage of Mas Mateu’s extensive facilities, including a dedicated swimming pool complex, spa, gym, football field, basketball court, paddle-tennis court, an outdoor barbeque, a summer kitchen housed in an ancient barn, and personal cinema.
