These beautifully restored old farmhouses are located in the midst of the Alberes Natural Park (Eastern Pyrenees), and very well integrated into the wild surroundings of the estate called Baussitges. Perfect for nature lovers (ideal for bird-watching and any other activity related to nature), or simply for those who want to rest, go biking or walking along wonderful forest trails.
It is also ideal for artists looking for a quiet place to work. Writers, musicians or painters will find a peaceful place here to concentrate.
El Corralet de la Llosa has been renovated into a warm mountain cottage. Immersed in the wild Alberes Mountains that form the Alberes Natural Park, it is one of three renovated houses located in Baussitges. Although just 30 km away from the busy Costa Brava, this wild place has remained a secret. Here you can discover the beautiful wilderness of the forests and the calm of the mountains.
Only authorized cars can go into the estate so the absence of the noisy traffic and people in the surroundings is just one of the advantages of being so isolated.
The house has been renovated following the local style.
Inside there is one double room with an open fire for heating and a triple mezzanine bedroom which opens onto the living room. In the open plan kitchen/dinning room-living room there is another fire for heating. The shower-room and toilet is next to the living room.
By conserving the old, thick walls, this house is easy to heat in winter yet remains cool in summer.
Electricity is provided by energy saving solar panels and as a result, electrical appliances are not recommended. This is also the reason that microwaves, washing machines etc. are not provided. Water comes directly from a spring. For most of the year, there are no shortages however in summer great care should be taken to reduce waste to a minimum.
The front of the house has a terrace where it is possible to take a pleasant al fresco breakfast or supper and nearby there is another large terrace with barbecue and stone table. From both you have wonderful views of the mountains.
If you want to bring your pet, it is better to get in contact first since there are dogs and farm animals roaming free.


There are some farm products on sale (our own olive oil, seasonal produce from the kitchen garden, marmalades, pacharan, a local alcoholic drink...etc).
Also eggs from the farm and chicken can be bought.
Breakfasts and meals can be served if you tell the owners before your arrival.
Indoor-games are provided.
Information about paths and wonderful forest trails can be asked to the owners. Local maps are provided by the owners.
