The Farmhouse

Casa Mauri farmhouse is one of the highest houses in Santa Engracia village offering unbeatable views from it’s windows. It is built into the side of the rock on which Santa Engracia is situated which accounts for the rather strange description of the layout. The farmhouse accommodation occupies three floors with a large entrance hall on the uppermost floor leading from the walled courtyard. In the entrance hall is a bookcase with a selection of books, largely in English, and a wide range of information about the region and things to do and see (plus a games table with table football, mini-snooker, table tennis etc.).

Descending a wide staircase, one floor below is the spacious kitchen. In the hall is a bookcase with a selection of books, largely in English. On this level there is a large fitted kitchen  with plenty of work-top space and it is well provided with crockery, pans, glasses and serving dishes and cutlery. There is a four-ring gas cooker with oven, a microwave oven and a toaster and a fridge- freezer. A washing machine is at your disposal in an outbuilding off the courtyard where there is also an extendable washing line and pegs. In a cupboard outside the kitchen there is an iron, ironing board, cleaning equipment and a child’s high chair.

Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious living room with a dining table that seats six people at one end of the room and a sofa and two armchairs plus a coffee table in the other half of the room. In the sitting area there is also a flat screen TV,  DVD player and a small ipod docking system. Free Wifi is available throughout the house, whilst only 3mbs it is sufficient for emails etc. In the living room you will find a copy of the previous owner’s walking guide and information about the facilities of the house and the area. The area is heated by a new pellet stove. Pellets can be either purchased in Tremp or from myself.

An arched doorway leads out from the living room onto the private terrace where you will find a table, chairs and a parasol. The views from the terrace, as from the windows of the living room, are stunning, looking south down into the Tremp valley.
