Cortal Gran is a family home, which has been passed on generation after generation, since the 19th century
My father inherited it in 1984 completely in ruins and deteriorated. He set out to create a home for his family from this fortification.
We have a very good memory of all its evolution and the spirit of Cortal Gran we have all been creating it together. I remember when they were mounting the floor, the doors… It seems that it was yesterday when we chose the colours of the walls!
This whole process until the year 2000, when we definitely came into life.
We believe in things well done, the joys of day-to-day and love as a way of life
Since then our family has not stopped growing: Pere, Marcela, Constantin, Lua and little Rita…
Cortal Gran has meant the illusion of our life, we have been shaping it for a long time, for 9 years, we want to share it with all of you. We believe in well-done things, the joys of everyday life, and love as a way of life.
If you love what you do and do it fondly, the experience is infinitely better.
Cortal Gran symbolizes the love of life, our origin and the union and complicity between all of us. A synergy that will not leave you indifferent!
In 2011 Cortal Gran opened its gardens, expanding the porches and annexes for weddings and events.
In 1365 the Caramany family was granted the Lordship of Sant Pere Pescador and this included the village castle as well as various lands of the area.
The castle of Cortal Gran was later built, in the S.XV, in the centre of the farm. It was built as a fortified house for the defence of attacks by pirates and bandits, which in this area lasted until the 1.XVII.
The Caramany family has always been engaged in farming and livestock farming and continues today with the exploitation of the apple fields that surround it.
Its current owner, Juan Granada de Caramany inherited it in 1984, rehabilitated it and converted it into its residence in 2000.
