Masia Garrotxa: Costa Brava area

Sleeps 14  |  Bedrooms 8  |  Bathrooms 7

 

When the owners of Masia Garrotxa first visited this 13th century farmhouse in the pre-Pyrenees of Catalunya, it was a crumbling ruin. They immediately fell in love with the property and together with a well-known architect, embarked on a daring 4 year restoration journey to sustainably recover a piece of Spanish patrimony with all of the benefits of modern comfort.  This remarkable home completed in early 2020 was the very first LEED Platinum certificated Masia in Spain.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification that ensures buildings are designed and built sustainably, with high environmental performance in energy usage and water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, high indoor environmental quality and stewardship of resources.  Masia Garrotxa was awarded the Leed Platinum qualification, the highest level of certification. 

What we have is a very well designed house, not only in terms of ecological footprint, but also in comfort, style and modern conveniences. The house is child-friendly and enjoys total tranquillity and unobstructed green views. The origins of the house date back over 800 years, but was almost a ruin when restoration began. However, the restoration incorporated many clever and traditional building methods used in Masias in the region for thousands of years. The end result is a house on the cutting edge of technology while remaining sympathetic to the ancient building traditions of the region.
