Current stage development;
At present, Can Prat is ready to start refurbishment..A business plan, architects drawings from architects in Barcelona and full planning permission has been granted.
Can Prat has the rare benefit of mains sewerage which is very unusual in a Spanish country house. With the installation of a water purifying plant, 80% of water can be recycled for irrigation and laundry.
Solar panel installation will also be a big benefit to the project.
The house and property;
The property is a traditional stone built Catalan masia (the largest and most important farmhouse in an area) dating from 1732, although there is evidence of a farm on the site since the 9th century.
Set in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, it is approached through a stone archway and contains many original features including a tiled baptismal font, stone sinks and a granite washing tub dated 1788.
It was re-roofed in 1996 and is in exceptionally good, dry condition. Although it still stands in 8 hectares of land (including a small forest), the estate was once much larger and the mountains either side of the house take their names from it.
Within the grounds are a number of outbuildings, including a historic olive press and a two storey house for refurbishment perfect for owner accommodation.
Although essentially a rural retreat, Can Prat has exceptionally good transport links and is close to many major attractions. Barcelona airport and the city itself are just 45 minutes on the C25 road (exit 115 is just 800 metres from the hotel).
Aguilar de Segarra station is less than 1 km away with a three times daily service to Barcelona.
The historic monastery on the mountain of Montserrat is just 20 minutes away and the cava vineyards are within half an hours drive. The rugged beaches of the Costa Brava can be reached within an hour and the ski-resorts and exciting terrain of the eastern Pyrenees are just 1.5 hours away.
Cycling and walking routes are all around with direct access from Can Prat to some of the most beautiful scenery in the
Importantly, the hotel is situated on the Ruta del Paradores, a popular touring holiday for both Spanish and international tourists.
