blending centuries-old traditional features with a host of state of the art amenities. Situated amongst the undulating Gavarran Mountains, in the heart of Girona, the main house is
nestled within a sprawling 173 acre forested estate, ensuring complete privacy.

extensive dining areas, and of course wide open spaces in which to relax, walk, jog and discover.


Within the house there are many areas to relax. Not least the vast living room suite, which has views as far across the estate and beyond that the eye can see. Curl up on one of the many sofas with a book. Maybe read about Dalí from one of the assortment of books to be found in the library, or put some music on. Mas Mateu has a sophisticated sound system in every room, as well as outside! The doors to the main living room are floor-to-ceiling glass and are electronically controlled to open, allowing you to be outside,
