I remember it was a cold January afternoon when my parents told me that we were going to visit somewhere new, an almost deserted masía that we had bought.
I can perfectly recall that first feeling of space, the surroundings, and the views over the mysterious mountain of Montserrat. The place emanated something incredibly special, which profoundly moved me. The house itself was completely dilapidated: it had no roof, and its facade was totally overgrown with weeds, which were concealing the beautiful original stone structure, so seeped in history.
After several years of work, construction, projects and ideas, La Garriga de Castelladral is today our little paradise in the middle of nature; our home and our work place, where we see our creativity and dreams flourish. It is a meeting ground and point of unity in our family.
In some ways, La Garriga symbolises our values as a family: a love for nature, taking care of the little things, excellence, dedication and commitment, silence, a passion for cooking, healthy food, simplicity, consistency, respect for others and for our surroundings, union and re-connecting with the family.
