Location

La Portella, Guardiola de Bassella, Catalonia 25792, Spain

Situated in the beautiful plains 1.5 hours north west of Barcelona near the town of Ponts in Catalonia, the villa is an ancient farmhouse refurbished to a modern standard which has maintained all of its elegant rustic charm. With gorgeous views to the Pyrenees and the stunning surrounding rolling hills I can’t imagine a more relaxing location to escape the hustle and bustle of London.
