Standing in 5 acres with arable fields, shady woods, well established gardens with automatic watering system, fruit trees, and a fenced vegetable garden, the south facing country house of Mas Can Vella, with its adjacent, independent cottage, is a haven of peace and tranquility and a perfect setting for any equestrian enterprise, or as a very comfortable family home with your horses and family pets.

Although in the heart of the countryside, the property  is  still less than 15 mins to  PGA Golf Course, 20 mins  to Girona airport or to the beautiful beaches of the Costa Brava, and less than  a 10 min. drive to the towns of Maçanet and Vidreres with the A2 and AP7 taking you north to France and south to Barcelona.

The layout of the fields and woods on the property are perfect for horses, either for business or for pleasure, with a plentiful water supply, well-drained grazing land and cool, shady grazing in the woods in the hotter months of summer, and for all year round riding, the surrounding countryside has fragrant, pine scented  woods, rivers, valleys and hills,  criss-crossed by miles and miles of tracks that you can follow right  down to the mediterranean, or even up to the  Pyrenees!
