In a beautiful mountain valley setting in the heart of the Priorat wine region, less than 2 km from the charming village of Capçanes and a direct rail link to Barcelona, this rural-zoned property has around 50.000 m2 of forest land with terraces of olive, almond and cherry trees and a traditional 30m2 ‘casita de campo’ building with an adjacent storage area. It is ideal for permaculture –some plant beds are already in place with others planned– and we are told that the property has been assessed by a local permaculture specialist. Off grid power, water via rainwater collection, the track access is concreted in some parts but is best by 4×4.
Capçanes village: 1.5km; rail link to Barcelona: 1.8 km; Falset: 9km; beaches (l’Hospitalet de l’Infant, Mont-roig): 38km; Reus airport: 43 m; Barcelona airport: 130 km
50.139 m2 of forest (mainly pine) according to Catastro data, with sheltered terraces of non-irrigated trees: 180 (approx) olive trees, 95 (approx) cherry trees and 95 (approx) almond trees. These produce a good crop of fruit –150 kg of cherries in 2018– but require some pruning and attention.
Views are very attractive –you can see the village of Els Guiamets and nearby lake from the top of the land– the environment is peaceful. There is an abundance of aromatic herbs and wild plants and flowers.
Fenced animal enclosure plus cages for chickens and goats. 10.000 traditional rainwater collection ‘cisterna’. Wooden structure suitable for wood storage or animals, or as basic shelter for camping.
30 m2 (approx) single room ‘casita de campo’, with an adjacent storage shed. South-facing, stone-brick construction and tiled roof. It has recently been insulated with natural materials and has 3 windows with wooden frames, neatly tiled terracotta floors, a large open fireplace and all new lights and electric wiring (power is via an off-grid power system with solar panels).
Adjacent to the building is an outdoor barbecue area and nearby there is the basic structure, made with natural and recycled materials, for a 12m2 outdoor bath room.
Separate toilet block with a flushing WC and a shower.
Various items of equipment, tools and materials are included in the sale price, email us for full details.
Further up the land and with excellent views, there is a small traditional stone hut of around 10m.
Capçanes is a picturesque and friendly Catalan village with narrow streets, basic shops and a municipal swimming pool (in the Summer months), all set in the rolling hills and vineyards of some of the most beautiful landscapes of Southern Catalonia. It also has a railway link to Barcelona (about 2h 15 min by train), Reus and Tarragona. There are some good restaurants in the area and the local wine (DO Priorat, DO Montsant) is quite outstanding! In the nearby market town of Falset (9 km) you will find two schools, a health centre, a supermarket, shops, bodegas, restaurants and bars, while all the facilities of the city of Reus (100.000+ inhabitants) are about 30-35 minutes by car.
Great potential for a permaculture and sustainable lifestyle initiative, or simply as a peaceful refuge for relaxing at weekends and on holidays. Full details available, contact us for more info or a viewing!
