HOUSE IN CAP DE RAS
6 Rooms - 6 Bathrooms - 434 m2
Llançà (Costa Brava) - When we arrived at Cap de Ras and I saw this plot, I knew you would be mine. A gentle slope to the southeast, with the view wide open, between the pines of Borró and the Sierra de Estela with the Port of Llançà at its feet: El Port de la Selva, Cap de Creus, You and Me and the horizon.
From our love was born this project, where life passes without obstacles, bathed in the sapphire of the sea and the gold of this sun that gives us so many days. We don't talk enough about how the light is at this latitude in front of the Mediterranean.
I like the sea in the north with the midday light, when the sun brings out the blue of your eyes reflected in the seabed. I love the light of the sunset, when the light of the blue sky tinges with pearl all the sea to the south in front of the Port. But above all the gold of dawn, when Lorenzo rises over the horizon, floods the rooms to the east with reflections on the ivory stucco, the woodwork and the marble that frame our history.
The idea took shape: the entrance at the highest and most discreet point of the plot, with the entrance to the main floor at the same level, dominating the surroundings. A porch to shelter you when you get out of the car before opening the house, and the ramp leading down to the garage on the side, all nicely finished and landscaped.
A vestibule with wardrobes leads to the double-height hallway, where the wooden balustrade and the stained-glass window of the dining room begin to hint at the blue reflections of our intimacy. Behind the stained glass window, the great living room is dressed in ivory, onyx and sea in the east. Also with double height, the balustrade between the two suites with terrace on the first floor brings the spaces closer together and enhances conviviality. The north façade, sheltered by the mountain, two additional ground floor suites in the best place to rest. The south façade, with all the light and the view, the kitchen space with office, and the terrace of our sunsets.
The semi-basement with an additional suite, garage, storage rooms and cellars. We still kept our private forest in the lower part of the plot, where we could build a swimming pool with changing rooms in the porch under the terrace. The sea was what moved you and me: a 200m walk to the beach of Canyelles, the Cala Bramant 400m from the door of the house, the harbour next door.
We had the sanity and the courage to make our dream come true in one of the most magical corners of the Alt Empordà. The best kitchens and restaurants with the best local food and wine, natural parks on land and underwater, bird reserves, land and sea sports... Our refuge in the middle of the most untamed nature, where I want to come back every time with you.
