Ca l'Esteve, Gósol

Ca l'Esteve is fairly typical of houses in Gósol, with an enclosed yard and buildings on three sides. The yard is now a  garden  in which to relax, cook on the barbecue, or enjoy a drink after a long walk in the mountains.

Bedrock still peeks through the  lawn, a curious feature in what could otherwise be the 18th  green of a well manicured golf course, with the 19th hole  close by.

The original house still stands, with its low ceilings, wooden beams, creaky floors, upstairs fireplace and all the incommodity associated with life in a small mountain village - draughts, insects and spiders, dust and more.



The self catering accommodation   has only the odd insect to contend with, being of another age and with better insulation! It has access to the garden from upstairs, and to the street via the downstairs entrance.


The House


Woodburning Stove

At Ca l'Esteve we use wood from the surrounding forests to heat the house. The stove is very efficient and capable of heating all the rooms, but radiators may also be used when the temperature drops below zero. Burning local wood reduces the need to transport often poor quality timber

The house is quite basic but meets most needs. The garden  has a purpose built barbecue, table and chairs.

Charcoal and wood to start the fire are provided. 

The garden is intended for relaxing and can  be enjoyed all year round - depending on the weather. In winter, the midday sun can be very warm, making  outdoor eating a pleasure.

The  bathroom has a washhand basin , large shower, separate toilet. Soap and towels are provided, as is bed linen and quilts. Extra blankets can be found in the rooms for those accustomed to warmer climes.
