MEDIEVAL CASTLE WITH 62 ACRES OF LAND. Beautiful located, with panoramic view. The interior needs to be totally renovated. The castle offers many possibilities with a surface of approximately 1680 square yards. Very suitable for example a hotel or B&B. The castle has electricity, telephone and water.The castle is located near the village Besalú, a golf resort and the beach within half hour.
Harmony in ideal surroundings: Its surroundings are an ideal framework to its history and beauty, because it is placed in a quiet valley between the gentle plains of Empordà County (where Dalí was born) and the land of volcanos of La Garrotxa County; a land with unique qualities and a lot of possibilities. Very close to other points of interest: 5 km from Besalú and 30 km from Figueres. 22 km from Olot and 12 from the lake of Banyoles. 44 km from Ampuriabrava´s beach and harbor. 34 km from the Peralada Casino.
The castle and its land: A total of 62,5 hectares surrounding the castle are part of the property. With a high natural value, mountains and woods of the property as well as the neighboring lands are a hunting reserve. Like in the medieval era, hunting (especially wild boar) it is one of the activities that can be done in such a special environment.
Building: Structure and walls are in perfect conditions, which is very rare among the medieval castles in Catalonia, especially taking into account that some of the walls were erected in the 10th century. You will still find many of the Gothic style details inside the building, such as Gothic arches with relieves above the doors. The roofs were restored few years ago. Inside, a general restoration is needed. Its stables, dungeons, cellars, rooms, bedrooms, tower... offer infinite possibilities.
Such a jewel is waiting for your investment proposal, to give the castle a new purpose, a part of being a witness of the country´s history and an element of unique beauty in the valley. Make the inside of the walls (which hosted during centuries members of the most distinguished Catalan nobility) revive again.
