Mas Sant Nicolau is a traditional catalan finca with farmhouse and 7 country cottages/apartments set in extensive grounds with pool, tennis court, events room, gardens, 12th century hermitage. Casa Lorca was originally a small barn adjoining the main house. It is a 2 bedroom rustic cottage on 2 floors (steep staircase and sloping ceiling in the family bedroom) with sunny terrace/garden, looking out to the Mediterranean gardens. Tranquil yet centrally situated for the coast and mountains.

The space

We are Francis and Helen, originally from the UK. We moved to Catalunya to live a gentler, sunnier life, By accident, almost, we discovered Mas Sant Nicolau - a special, tranquil place in an incredibly diverse natural environment. With an 11th century hermitage at the gate, we restored our ancient country house and converted it to provide us with a home and seven cottages in spectacular and lovingly tended gardens with pool and tennis court. You couldn't wish to be in a more beautiful environment. Sharing this space is a wonderful way to meet so many lovely people from all over the world, who relax and unwind and find themselves again. We love airbnb people - welcome! What do we do in our spare time? We get inspired by the nature all around us ,play music (Francis) and paint (Helen), cook fabulous meals with local produce and from our own garden, walk with our dogs through the forest and by the sea. and in winter go skiing for the day. We pick fresh lemons and oranges from the garden, collect wild asparagus and mushrooms from the forest. We live in the main house alongside our seven country cottages, so we make great friends with visitors and love to learn about their lives and customs. We also support an international volunteering scheme so when you stay it is quite possible that you will meet other people from anywhere else in the world. Our life motto? Enjoy the moment and the rest will follow! And when it doesn't go right, start again!
