El Serradell East

Southeast facing, El Serradell East receives the rays of the early morning sun right up the afternoon, even in winter. Its large spacious living areas make it suitable for groups of five or six people.

&

The house is totally self sufficient: solar electricity and solar-heated sanitary water, water supplied from natural springs or a well that collects rainwater, and a biomass heating system. During bad weather spells we boost the electricity supply and hot running water with a generator.

A fully equipped kitchen with butane gas cooker. As the cottage runs on solar electricity, we avoid electric appliances: dishes are washed in the sink, bread is toasted on a grill on the stove and we brew coffee in a classic espresso coffee percolator.

The original brick wood-fired oven has been preserved as a historical curiosity and adorns the all-purpose room downstairs.

Independent outside grounds, with picnic table, a small above-ground swimming pool for the kids and outdoor showers in summer. These outside grounds are a natural veranda with birds eye views over most of north east Catalonia, stretching from the Montseny mountain to the south right up to the easternmost peaks of the Pyrenees to the west.
