The country house with a rectangular plan gives the building majesty whilst still retaining many original architectural features. It has a ground floor, 1st floor and covered terrace on the 2nd floor.

a spacious kitchen with a fireplace, working bread oven, flagstone flooring and built-in cupboards;

a lounge with fireplace and fired clay flooring;

a large dining room with a doubled vaulted Catalana ceiling, oratory, font, built-in cupboards and fired clay flooring;

a storage room;

6 double bedrooms are accessed from the main living area, 3 of which have handmade fired clay flooring;

Finally a ladder leads to the arched covered terrace with breathtaking views of the valley.

Another feature that reinforces the value of this property is the abundance of water it has. A font, which is used for drinking water, flows all year and there are 3 large cascading ponds and 1 natural pool that can be used for irrigation.

The vegetable garden is nestled below the main house and benefits from a southerly exposition. Fruit trees (cherries, pears, nispero, pomegranate, quince, persimmon, figs, grapes and lemon) and hazelnuts, walnuts and almonds are planted in and around the vegetable garden.

The majority of the land is devoted to native forest land comprising of holm oak, cork, chestnut, hazel with native herbs and bushes. There are private paths and tracks for access with many forested terraces that were once cultivated - it is possible to return these terraces to food production.
