Situated on a glorious, mammoth countryside estate in the stunning Catalonian Hills, just north of Girona and Barcelona, Villa Vilademuls offers superbly characterful accommodation to large groups of family or friends. The villa is nestled just outside the town of Vilademuls and just 20 minutes from the quaint beach of the Greco-Roman ruins of Empuries, 20 minutes from Girona and the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres. There are many heavenly villages and towns all within less than an hour’s drive in the area as well as just north of the border with France. Guests enjoy beach days, cultural days, days in the Pyrenees, cooking courses, wine tastings, and so much more.

The Riu Onyar separates the walkable historic centre from the gleaming commercial centre on the west. Barcelona is an hour’s drive away or you can take a 38 minute train from Girona.

This magical villa dates back to 1806 and whilst it offers wonderfully maintained modern amenities, it charms with its ancient character, featuring stone arches, beamed ceilings and many other atmospheric nods from the past. Villa Vilademuls enjoys an incredibly inviting, warm ambience, partly due to its age, partly due to its warming terracotta decor and rich, lavish furnishings, partly due to the colourful bougainvillea which is so much a part of its exterior, partly to its excellent management team who are dedicated to ensuring that you experience the holiday of your dreams and partly due to all the other special touches that it offers. This traditional two hundred year old farmhouse enjoys a red-tiled roof, an ancient well and beautiful stone walls.

Its furnishings are sumptuous, stylish and superbly comfortable.

A large, elegant entrance hall leads you to the living areas and one ground floor bedroom suite. The villa’s kitchen will enchant the chefs in your group with its plentiful, excellent appliances, large island bench and gorgeous feeling like being in “your home away from home.” The dining area is lovely plus there is a sitting area with a squishy sofa and rocking chairs in front of an open fireplace, a real hub of the farmhouse. The kitchen offers two large fridges, a large gas range, a dishwasher and plenty more. Guests can easily keep the chefs company in this wonderfully sociable space.
