Description

Mas Mateu, a grand 18th century Spanish estate, has retained all the grandeur and style of the elegant mansions of the period while at the same time featuring the most modern of conveniences within its resplendent walls.

The house sleeps eighteen adults and four children, with additional residences, making it ideal for a private family getaway or intimate wedding. A graceful arched doorway leads into a series of inviting lounges, with magnificent views over the Emporda and the Pyrenees. Cool alabaster walls frame the grand salon's majestic fireplace.

Each bedroom is uniquely decorated in delicate tones. Sink into a deliciously deep oval bath, surrounded by glass walls that open onto the surrounding forest, for the ultimate in tranquility.

Dining is a truly Catalan experience at Mas Mateu. Enjoy a Spanish banquet, freshly prepared by the in-house 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 may feel like venturing outside the estate.

Mas Mateu has extensive facilities, including a dedicated swimming pool complex, gym, football field, basketball court, paddle court, an outdoor barbeque, a summer kitchen housed in an ancient barn, and cinema.

Area Description:

As we have introduced previously Mas Mateu is on the heart of the Golden triangle. The Golden Triangle is located in the "Emporda", in the North East part of Spain, known for the locals as the "Spanish Tuscany", touching with the French border and Pyrinees on the north, the Mediterranean on the east and having Barcelona 120 Km south. The capital of the province is Girona.

The landscape of the Emporda is composed of the fields of sunflowers, rice, wheat and cypress trees, protecting apple orchards and fields. Among them there are medieval villages. Its coast, sometimes "Brava," combines a great taste of the sea towns, coves with the crystal clear water, beaches, rugged cliffs and islands of biological interest such as the Medes. There is also an archaeological site of Ullastret Iberian and Greek and Roman Empuries.

The Emporda is a region with a rich culture and history, heavily influenced by its geographical position, like the border with France at the northeastern fringe of Catalonia and the Iberian peninsula, which has characterized it as a place of passage. The top exponents are Salvador Dali with his three museums and the medieval villages.

All these elements could not be understood without Emporda landscape, most of it protected, the Natural Park of Les Gavarres, the Marshes of the Emporda, Cap de Creus, the marine reserve of les Illes Medes, the Natural Park of the Albera and the Bassegoda area.

Nowadays, the Emporda is one of the top gastronomical areas in the world with the influence of Ferran Adria and his restaurant "El Bulli" in the past, and actually with Joan Roca and his brothers with their restaurant "El Celler de Can Roca", known as the second best restaurant in the world with three Michelin stars.
