Few places offer the capacity that this property offers, it really is a home away from home. The atmosphere is magical and you get to experience authentic country cooking, an incredible array of activities and of course the beautiful views. Torre Caballe has the atmosphere of a country home but with all the comfort of an exclusive retreat. The property boasts a huge sitting room on the ground floor that incorporates part of the rock face that the property is built into, and was once used to house livestock when the property was a farmhouse.
There are two large dining rooms, as well as a home cinema room that can also function as a conference room. Downstairs you'll find a wine cellar with an exclusive collection of the owner’s family whiskeys. There are numerous secluded terraces and patios, and a stunning top floor sitting room with views of the National Park. Around the property there is an eclectic mix of family heirlooms as modern furnishings.
The building was restored over seven years, some parts have been returned to their former glory and other parts have been rebuilt so there is a comfortable mix of old and new. It is set in 60 acres of grounds, gardens, almond groves and oak and pine forest. There are trails through the woods to their very own fresh water spring and there are several walks that can be made from the house including to the Picosa where you can sit in a swivel chair and survey the incredible scenery. The infinity pool is solar heated and a perfect place to relax on long summer days.
Matarranya is a small corner of the country known as the ‘Spanish Tuscany’. Although you are on the edge of the dramatic Els Ports Natural Park with incredible hiking trails, it’s only just over an hour to the coast so there is that wonderful Mediterranean climate. Here the three kingdoms of Catalonia, Valencia and Aragon meet. The countryside is a patchwork of almond and olive groves interspersed with beautiful meadows of wild flowers. It’s a part of Spain that has only recently been discovered by the Spanish themselves who come to see a part of the country where the traditional Spanish values remain. Here the locals work the land for a living and the villages preserve their medieval past.
As well as the beautiful landscapes, which Picasso captured in his youth, there is also some of the best wildlife in the country. Ibex with huge horns come down to the almond grove and right onto the front lawn in the summer evenings, and the vulture-feeding centre nearby has been rated as one of the top 5 wildlife attractions in Europe.
