In a delightful location that offers the best of both rural and urban, this charming character property offers that winning combination of a peaceful rustic setting and close proximity to all amenities, being situated on the outskirts of the thriving market town of Palafrugell.
Dating back to the 18th Century, La Rajoleria is a wonderful example of a superbly executed stone barn conversion and is located just a 5 minute walk from the centre of town and less than 5km from the delightful coastal beauty spots of Llafranc, Calella and Tamariu. Once a centre for the production of handmade terracotta tiles, evidence of its rich heritage can still be seen in the property’s unique design and characteristic features such as the original brick kiln which is preserved beneath a glass floor off the master bedroom.
The sensitive restoration has respected the charm of the original character whilst ensuring that comfort and convenience is provided throughout. The living/dining room conveniently opens out to a spacious pool area, the south facing aspect of which ensures sunshine throughout the day whilst shade is provided by a long covered pergola.
Due to the vast number of cork oaks that grow in the region, local family run businesses have been supplying the wine industry with cork stoppers for over three centuries. It therefore comes as no surprise that running adjacent to the house is some 5000m² of the property’s own private enclosed cork forest.
The proximity of La Rajoleria to Palafrugell is particularly appealing. A walk of just 500m along a country lane brings cafés, restaurants and a wide range of shops (not to mention the daily fruit and vegetable market and colourful Sunday market) within easy reach. The town’s main square is a hub of local activity with regular live music and dancing, the perfect spot in which to spend a relaxing, Mediterranean evening dining on one of the many restaurant terraces before strolling home for a peaceful nightcap by the pool.
