Grand 14th Century Catalan Manor, Mas Riera is an imposing property situated in a beautiful and peaceful location.
Offering you the opportunity to experience luxury and tradition, the manor stands in acres of rolling countryside with uplands of dense forest contrasting with flowering and verdant meadows, creating a setting of unsurpassable beauty. You will also find yourself enjoying views of the Mediterranean sea, which stretches into the horizon, reminding you that this essentially rural setting is only a 10 minute drive away from some of the most picturesque and preserved spots found along the Catalan littoral, such as Aigua Blava, Tamariu or Llafranc.
The property has been restored over a 24 year period, great care being taken as to retain all the original features, and the rib-vaulted and Baroque style painted ceiling, along with the mullioned windows and exposed stones offer a subtle combination of traditional and contemporary fabrics and furnishing. Exuding comfort and quality, it extends over three floors and is equipped with the most up to date facilities. An abundance of sumptuously furnished rooms open out to each other and each well proportioned bedroom benefits from ensuite facilities and air conditioning. You will find a selection of elegant and stylish sitting rooms, snooker room, TV room and a library, which offer a feeling of intimacy and make it the perfect place for large groups of family and friends. And you will be delighted by the spa, perhaps the most impressive area of the property, which has an indoor heated swimming pool with incorporated Jacuzzi, a Finnish sauna and a fitness room.
Outside, immaculate laws, colourful flower beds and lush shrubbery await, complimented by a stunning swimming pool. Numerous shaded corners, sun terraces and a poolside pergola can be found on the area, along with a barbecue. Outdoor dining areas also adorn the grounds, making them ideal for days of relaxation or romantic evenings.
A separate self-contained cottage or ‘caseta’ is available for larger groups. It is situated on the other side of the entrance courtyard and provides additional accommodation while offering the same exquisite decor found in the main house.
The surrounding area offers a large variety of activities such as golf, sandy beaches, cycle routes and walking trails. Even the 4km drive separating the property from the local supermarket is a delight with the beautiful and ever changing views of ‘mar y montaña’ along with the faint scent of pine, wild broom, lavender and rosemary.
