Casa Solo Pezo is an award-winning architectural marvel, nestled in mountainous Spanish forest land that's blissfully off the beaten track.

The Solo Houses project has been making huge waves in the architectural world, with very good reason.

Set in Cretas, a natural and untouched forest setting in the mountainous Spanish region of Matarraña (known as ‘Spanish Tuscany'), the ongoing project comprises a one-hundred hectare plot, on which a ‘resort' of fifteen architecturally unique houses and a hotel will be built.  

The brainchild of a Paris-based couple with a passion for architecture as art, each house will be individually designed by international, cutting-edge architects - letting their creativity run wild!

Set close to a natural park near Barcelona, the area itself is naturally wondrous, peppered with olive and almond trees, rivers and sparkling waterfalls. Though Barcelona Airport is a mere two hours away by car, you'll feel as though you've been transported to whole new world as soon as you arrive.

The first home to be completed for Solo Houses, Casa Solo Pezo has featured in worldwide media and won a host of awards, including selection as one of the five most important new houses in the world.

Created by award-winning Chilean architects Pezo von Ellrichshausen, the all-concrete, off-grid house is privately nestled in an area purposefully off the beaten track, above a secluded valley and offering magnificent views over the Puertos de Beceite National Park.  

Two storeys high and sleeping up to five people in two bedrooms, the house is designed in the style of a traditional Meditteranean home, with contemporary features that include sliding glass walls in the living, kitchen and dining areas that allow total immersion in your natural surroundings. Designed for a raw, minimalist living experience amongst nature, you won't find any TV here (although WiFi is provided) - but with so much wild and tranquil beauty to be explored in ever direction, who needs those?

Outside, you'll feel completely at one with the natural world, with vast, wildlife-steeped woodland at your disposal to wander through. Further afield, there are plenty of opportunities to try your hand at a range of invigorating outdoor adventures, while the soft beaches of the Ebro Delta nature reserve are accessible within 45 minutes by car.

If you're not a fan of crowded Spanish beaches and noisy nightlife, the option to upgrade your holiday experience to something more relaxed and naturally immersive may be too tempting to resist. Add award-winning architecture and blissful seclusion, and there you have it. A holiday you will treasure for many years to come.
