Description Mas Collades
AWARDED AS ONE OF THE BEST 1.000 SPANISH RURAL PROPERTIESMas Collades is a beautiful three story manor house built in 1742 of sand stone with an interior patio and large wooden entrance doors typical of the 17th century. Mas Collades is located 70 km. north of Barcelona and is surrounded by 70 hectares of pine forests offering panoramic views of nature.The house was built by the family Los Collades, who took care of the house and its land for more than 150 years. Their descendants honoured the Catalan heritage law with the central figure as hereu (heir) followed by a priest, a doctor, a lawyer etc. They made their living through wine production and wood cutting and as such they were the main providers of the church wine called Vi de dir Misa of the Bishopric of Vic. Every year in November, they would transport the wine in large carriages to this town and consequently enrol yet another son at its seminary.In 1966, the family Permanyer bought the property of Mas Collades and restored the house and its surrounding to its original glory, which is now considered one of the most beautiful rural manor houses of Catalonia. Mas Collades is known for its warm hospitality, its excellent food and its original and tasteful decor with gracious bedrooms and spacious living, dining and meeting rooms. Mas Collades has been nominated as a recommended establishement by the national guide of Rural Houses in Spain, the rural guide of the magazine el Pais Aguilar and by Everest Quality Tourism.Please note: (1) This property has not provided information in your language.
