Located in the heart of the beautiful Catalonian hills north of Barcelona, this lovely masia, or farmhouse, is perched on a ridge with breathtaking views of the Pyrenees. Here the air is clear and guests can relax in the countryside of rural Spain, explore famous art in Barcelona, Girona, and Figueres, or swim and sun on the famous sandy beaches of the chic Costa Brava, less than 30 minutes away. The house has easy access to the highway, which is just 5 minutes from the farmhouse. You can cross the border into France in less than an hour making it easy to dine in Perpignan. The surrounding countryside, dotted with medieval hill towns, woods and green fields, is reminiscent of Tuscany and Provence. Cyclists train in the hills and Pyrenees Mountains, because the area has many trails, and is excellent for bicycling and walking. Guests can explore village markets, craft and pottery shops, and marvelous restaurants. Catalan cuisine is delicious, with fresh produce and ultra-fresh fish; several world-class restaurants are within reach. Guests are also delighted by the small country restaurants found in the villages perched nearby.

Mas Talaia is a marvelous place for a family or friends to enjoy a relaxing vacation in a fascinating and beautiful location. The area reminds us of Tuscany with its natural beauty, proximity to the sea, marvelous regional cuisine and easy access to great art cities.
