The Villa at La Bruguera de Púbol consists of 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, over 3 floors. It sleeps 12-13 people. It was built in the early 1980s, by Francesc D’Assis Casademont and Maria Angels Mercader Camps, as a place of reflection, family enjoyment, and creativity. Casademont “Le Vieux”, as he was known in art circles, painted his commercially successful Catalan landscape paintings, in large format, here, over several decades, and was insipired by the Modernist buildings of Le Corbusier, the renowned Swiss architect. He commissioned Lluís Maria Albín i Solà, his friend, and a prolific Catalan architect married to Swiss-Catalan painter Claude Mollet, to design his forest home and painting studio, and the result is a unique blend of stark modernist features, such as exposed concrete columns, huge corner windows, and floor-to-ceiling glazing, with the softer, more tonal features of historic mediterranean architecture, such as terra cotta tiles, ochre renders, and a mosaic tiled 10m swimming pool.
Visit today, and you will not only recognise the incredible sunsets, forest views, and mountain landscapes found in Casademont’s paintings and visible from here, but you will sense how this place was instrumental in helping him find the inspiration needed to produce such a large canon of work. Creativity, focus, and instant calm – these are all the kinds of feelings our visitors speak of, once through the gates.
While working on the villa in 2015 and 2016, and in the off-seasons nof 2017 and 2018, we left the aforementioned charm untouched, but added a host of modern amenities. From air conditioning & heating in the villa, renewable energy from solar panels, salt-water & heat for the swimming pool, to high-speed internet and boosted mobile phone coverage, we’ve made it possible to bask in the calming vintage glow of La Bruguera, whilst maintaining one’s 21st century life. In late 2018, we installed a stunning new spacious and hi-tech kitchen, with plenty of space for cooking demos, or hanging out.
