It includes a well-maintained golf course and a total area of 18 hectares. The castle is located in an ecologically preserved area in the Montseny Natural Park (Parque Natural de Monseny), which sits at the foothills of the Montseny Massif mountain.
This area is famous for its diverse animal life, Mediterranean and central European plant life, and nearby sources of natural mineral waters. Here, you can find some of Europe’s best-known spa hotels. It also features a convenient location just 40 km away from Barcelona and 30 km from the sandy beaches of the Costa Maresme.
The total built-upon area is currently 5,600 m2, which includes 2,102 m2 for the castle and 3,500 m2 with various additional structures, sport facilities, and 80 horse stables. There is a newly renovated guest house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
Many features of the castle, including the castle walls, the main tower, the 3 turrets and the Romanesque arch, are protected by the state and are thus well-preserved and maintained in their original condition. Please note that the interior living space of the castle requires renovation and repair.
On the castle grounds, you’ll find a haute cuisine Japanese restaurant run by a famous chef (who has a rental contract) with two rooms and an open-air terrace. The restaurant’s total area is 300 m2.
The largest part of the existing land is used as a golf course with a full round of 18 holes,. The course features pathways, ponds, picturesque hills and magnificent views of the mountains, and takes up nearly 15.3 hectares of land. The land is categorized as agricultural, which also allows for it to be used for sporting purposes.
Behind the castle, there is a space of land suitable for eco-friendly gardening, such as growing vegetables for your own consumption.
The acquisition of this exclusive residential property is more than just buying a castle or an estate in the suburbs of Barcelona. There are many advantages, including investment benefits.
Its existing structures and golf club can be leased at an approximate price of 200,000 euros per year. Alternately, they could be converted to be used for any other sporting activity, including show-jumping. The proximity of two international airports – Barcelona (50 km) and Girona (60 km) – gives La Garriga an advantage over other similar properties.
