Hidden deep in the Spanish mountains in a region called the Matarraña (often referred to as the Tuscany of Spain), our 18th-century stone farmhouse and glamping area offers you a cozy retreat to reconnect with nature. Olive grove-lined terraces both ascend up into the surrounding pine forest, and tumble down into fields of oats and more olive trees. Walk beyond the olive groves, and you’ll reach almond orchards and vineyards — Garnacha, Muscat, Merlot, All de Llebre, Cariñena. Sleep under a million stars and wake surrounded by nature.
The farmhouse is surrounded by various garden areas, a south-facing greenhouse, a swimming pool, wild fig trees and aromatic herbs, such as rosemary, thyme and parsley. Further on, you have oak and pine forests, as well as an extensive reserve of mature and abundantly bearing fruit trees. Some of the 950 olive trees (Empeltre and Arbequina) are more than 300 years old, with one in particular dating over 1,000 years old.
In addition, there are 400 almond trees (Largueta, Marcona and Molla), as well as a variety of fruit trees, such as peach, nectarine, quince, apricot, apple, loquat and cherry. The farm also includes 4 hectares of wine-producing vineyards (Muscat, Merlot, All de Llebre, Garnacha, Cariñena and Monastrell).
Over the past 30 years or so, the farmhouse has been expanded and reformed to support a successful Bed & Breakfast (with a 9,0 rating) in two considerable suites and three double bedrooms (all with en-suite bathroom and lovely views of the countryside), as well as a significant private apartment and additional guest room. (All these rooms can accommodate additional persons).
There is a pleasant library/guest dining room, as well as a large living room with its hand-crafted stone walls, terra cotta tile floor, wooden-beamed ceiling, fireplace and grand windows that overlook both the gorgeous olive-tree terraced valley below and the stone tower of the 200-person village of Torre del Compte in the distance.
Mas del Pi is on mains water, receives its heat and hot water via either propane or wood through a central heating system, and power is drawn from 24 solar panels with a large back-up German diesel generator. There is a metal tower built for a windmill, and groundwater can be obtained from a nearby natural underground spring, and rainwater cisterns are set up for the gardens and greenhouse.
It is possible to extend the farm and/or build additional buildings.
