Banyols manor house was built in 1602, and has only been owned by three families since that time. It is set on a plot of 109.250sqm and provides a constructed built up area of 2.825sqm over two levels, including out houses of 600sqm. This impressive property has its own original features like a complete original olive press (tafona), which only ceased production in the 1950’s, cattle stalls, bodega, its own natural spring water well, and a unique chapel contained in the grounds of this historic estate. On entering the property through the main entrance gates, you are met with an impressive stoned courtyard. On the left side of the property was originally the living quarters for the owners of the estate, having a noticeably larger and grander entrance, rooms, high ceilings, original wood beams, beautiful 16th century décor floor tiles, wood window frames and doors. The right side of the property was for the service staff, with many kitchens and service facilities to cater for the large scale everyday running of the house, which could be restored to its former glory to add to the special features of the property.
