Set in a quintessentially Mediterranean scene, this chic property is steeped in historical romance.

This medieval tower — superbly placed for international travel from Barcelona or Girona and enticingly close to the Costa Brava’s glorious sandy beaches — has been tastefully refurbished into an exquisite modern home.

We enter the pleasingly solid stone building from an impeccably maintained courtyard, studded with mature trees. The interior reveals a series of stunning spaces with many points of architectural interest to draw the eye, some characteristic of the Empordà region: distinctive stone archways, mullioned windows, wooden beamed ceilings...

The living space is designed over four levels for a total built area of 336 m2, and includes a generously proportioned kitchen-diner, double-height reception room with French doors inviting us to the garden, a solarium, two bedroom suites with stylish slate-tiled bathrooms, wine cellar and ample terracing.

The interior design scheme is inspired by the region’s rich craft heritage, using reclaimed wood, fine slate flooring and antique furnishings. All of the interior doors are original local antiques from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, while the magnificent marble fireplace in the living room is a French design from the eighteenth century. The overall result is both elegant and atmospheric, resulting in a thoroughly extraordinary refurbished period home with no shortage of talking points and destined for entertaining. e.
