Situated in a large Mediterranean garden Mas Caterina offers both peace and tranquility to the discerning visitor.

There are four separate and adjoining cottages on the property and these can be let together or separately.

There is a swimming pool.

Mas Caterina lies on a hill opposite the village of Madremanya. It is surrounded by “Les Gavarres”, a massif of smokey blue hills covered in holm oak, cork oak and strawberry trees.  From the property you have a view of the Pyrenees and the sea.

Although Madremanya is rather “off the beaten track” it is easily accessible.

It is at an hour's drive from Barcelona airport, twenty minutes away from Girona airport and under an hour's drive from the French frontier.

There is also a major railway station which links to Barcelona and to Perpignan just down the road at Flaçà.


Typical Mediterranean forest birds including sparrowhawk, tawny owl, green woodpecker, jay, blackbird and nightingale, among others. Mammals include wild boar (very common), badger, red squirrel and genet. Amphibians and reptiles include salamander and green newt, and a small population of Mediterranean tortoise. Les Gavarres is excellent for butterflies. Two-tailed pasha is present.
