“Nestling on the banks of the River Ter and close to the beautiful city of Girona, Cal Arnau is a truly magnificent country house dating back to Roman times that has been thoughtfully and sympathetically renovated.”

Around half of the 2,500 m2 floor area of the house has been lovingly renovated and restored in a process that has taken 17 years so far.  The end result is the creation of a perfect retreat for relaxing breaks and the ideal venue for a romantic wedding in the beautiful Catalan countryside.

INTRODUCTION

Many original features like wooden ceiling beams, exposed stone walls, terracotta floor tiles and Juliet balconies have been carefully maintained in order to retain the overall character of the property, and then blended with modern renovations and contemporary furnishing to create a high quality and luxurious holiday villa and event venue.

With 9 bedrooms and sleeping up to 24 guests, Masia Cal Arnau is perfectly suited to large families and groups holidaying together as well as providing an ideal venue for weddings and events. The house is only a 10-minute drive outside of the ancient walled city of Girona and there are numerous other attractions and places of interest close by and yet the 12 acres of beautiful grounds create a peaceful and rural feel.

Surrounded by mountains, river and forest, Cal Arnau is a beautiful place in which to relax and enjoy with family and friends but it’s also a fantastic venue for golfers, cyclists, anglers, walkers and anyone who enjoys outdoor activities or appreciates historical surroundings.

Cal Arnau is only a 35 minute drive from the beaches of the Costa Brava and 1 hr 30 minutes from the nearest ski slopes. The world-famous and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona is a 1 hour drive and easily accessible for day trips.

The caretakers Rocio and Luis from Colombia live in a separate house onsite and provide security and any assistance that may be needed during your stay.
