el puy

El Puy, also known as Casa Mongay, was built during the 19th century and finished in 1843. Later restoration processes have made it what it is today.

It was popularly given the name Le Puy because of its privileged location, on top of a hill overlooking the valley, right next to the village of Castigaleu, magnificently positioned facing south and free-standing.

Located right in the heart of the Pre-Pyrenees of Huesca, it is sheltered by the Pyrenees and the Montsec mountain range opposite, which joins the provinces of Catalonia and Aragon. At an altitude of 866 metres, and set halfway up the valley, it is an authentic viewpoint from which to see slope upon slope of mountain sides extending southwards finishing at Montsec.

The changing seasons are marked by the surrounding fields and forests, consisting mostly of oak trees, offering a peerless spectacle of the colours of nature.

Although located next to the village, the country house stands apart, secluded by the property’s lands and garden, which, thanks to the open space available, allows you to enjoy peace, tranquillity and contact with nature.

The village is welcoming and friendly. The inhabitants of Castigaleu are hardened by their lifestyle but kind. They have chosen to stay in the village while those around them have left for the big towns and cities, like in so many of the region’s villages.

The presence of Romanesque buildings in the village should be noted, and especially in the nearby Isábena Valley: the Romanesque cathedral of Roda d’Isábena, the Monastery of Obarra. And the Boi valley, a world heritage site, as well as bridges, churches, hermitages and so on.

Castigaleu is surrounded by natural and national parks; Posets-Maladeta, Ordesa-Monte Perdido, Montsec i Guara, as well as numerous places where you can enjoy different activities, such as rafting, horse-riding, quad biking trails, walking, and aquatic activities at various rivers and lakes.

In winter, an hour’s drive away, you will find the ski resorts of Cerler and Boi-Taüll, both at about 80 km. distance from the house, where you can do all kinds of winter sports. We particularly recommend cross-country skiing in Llanos de l’Hospital.
