Picks of the month: mountain retreat

As the year advances through August, the crowds in Barcelona have started to become unrelenting. Just getting to the office at 8am is almost impossible. The normal commute is overloaded with tourists getting an early start to sightseeing. It is clear we need to get away far from the maddening crowds and head for the mountains.

From the comfort of the office, we daydreamed our way through Trovit’s real estate ads to bring to you some magnificent mountain getaways. We hope we can all enjoy the peace and quiet and take advantage of the many seasonal mountain activities. Or you can enjoy year round outdoor bliss if you choose to call these places home.

The busy life in Tokyo can be overwhelming even to urbanites. This quaint single family home with a jacuzzi and a deck crafted from wood take full advantage of the breathtaking views of Yugawara-machi Yoshihama. The minimalisme and beauty of this property create the perfect environment for relaxing and resourcing.

The fully retractable windows look down over the property’s garden where you will be sure to find even more zen and inner peace.

There is nothing in life like the smell of a forest in the evening with a faint hint of wood smoke from the fire where the fresh caught fish is grilling. Then imagine sitting on 1st floor balcony sipping a brew while the sun sets. No internet, no emails, no distractions. Only the beginning of your communion with nature on this 29 acre plot and this amazing cabin retreat.

This is perfect for weekend getaways or as a permanent residence as it is only 10 minutes away from Bragg Creek and its fine dining and amenities.
