Set right in the middle of Montclar, a very small hill top village of around 20 houses, Cal Sastre is a traditional stone built house refurbished to a very high standard and beautifully decorated using simple vernacular furniture. This Medieval village has a 12th century Romanesque church and an old inn or Hostal, serving barbecued local meats. Booking is essential. If you want peace, tranquility, contact with nature and a slow paced holiday, Montclar is the place to be. Far away from holiday makers, the village is 720m above sea level, with a very dry and bearable heat during the day, and cool nights. Its setting is just on the foothill of the Pyrenees, which are visible from the house.

Far away from holiday makers, the village is 720m above sea level, with a very dry and bearable heat during the day, and cool nights. Its setting is just on the foothill of the Pyrenees, which are visible from the house. It comprises a large kitchen/dining room in the first floor with a small balcony and a large sitting room adjacent to it, with a terrace. In the same level there is a bedroom with a king size double bed and a large family bathroom. On the ground floor there is a large hallway, a bedroom with double bed and another bedroom with three single beds (two can turn into a king size). In the same level there is a shower room and washing machine. There is a garden around the house with table and chairs to enjoy the beautiful climate both during the day and in the evenings. The kitchen has a fridge/freezer, electric oven, electric hob, microwave, kettle, food processor, and it is fully equipped. The village is in a cul de sac and therefore there are very few cars. The car can be parked just outside the house or in the village car park, just a few metres away from the square. Montclar is located 3 miles from Casserres, 8 miles from Berga, and just 1h 20min. from Barcelona, and Barcelona airport, and same distance from Girona airport. Plenty of local walks and also close day trips from the village. Good places to buy food and good restaurants nearby for all budgets. A car is needed though. Also excursions well into the Pyrenées within 45min. drive, or less. After booking we will provide you with a list of places to do the shopping, artisan bakers, wine shops, bars, restaurants etc. The property doesn´t have a swimming pool but there are two fantastic council swimming pools in the adjacent villages with large pools and excellent water, Casserres -with an amazing view of the Pyrenées-, Montmajor -beautifully shaded- and Gironella -with a vast Olympic size pool-. They also have tennis courts and other sport facilities. Public pools in Catalunya are very good and have strict safety controls. We will try to give you free access to one of the closest pools within the booking of the property. Bedding is included, except for the cot. Towels also included. Please do not use them outside the house. We will send you a list of places to visit as well once you´ve booked. There are Romanesque churches galore in the area, salt mines, castles, mountains, villages, and plenty of things to do. You are in the heart of Catalunya here, but never too far away from anywhere. The closest beach is 1h 30min., the town of Vic is 40min. drive, Girona is just over 1h. Barcelona is 1h 20min. by car (or 1h 35min by bus). Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HUTCC000258More

About the neighborhood
Montclar is a lush and green hill top village, and a cul-de-sac so no through trafic, making it a peaceful place, with just the song of the birds, and the play of children around, in the summer. Outside holiday season there are less than 10 families living in this hamlet. From Montclar you can walk for miles around. There are many places to visit, Romanesque churches in unexpected, remote corners, towns with plenty of history and shops to wander around, Solsona, Berga, and Vic are all within easy reach. The house has a well equipped kitchen but if you prefer to eat out, there are plenty of good restaurants nearby, from budget to Michelin starred.
Getting around
By car is virtually the only way around, unless you are very fit and fancy riding a bike around the undulating roads.
