      I was wondering if anyone know what the difference is between a chalet and a casa in Spain. I should know this being half spanish but everyone I ask has a different answer. It is just that on one of the websites I am advertising my house it says that chalets have been selling at a higher price than casas. This is cataluña by the way, maybe something to do with catalans.
      I know that a “pareado” is one house split into 2
      An “adosado” is a mid terrace (I think)
      An “unifamiliar” is, (I don’t know to be honest)
      any input would be great, thanks

      a chalet is a detached house on its own plot – a casa can be many things but normally refers to ones home(ie flat, abode, maisonette, place where one sleeps, bedsit) and doesn’t reflect size, type etc ….

      Thankyou. That explains why it is saying that chalets are selling for more than casas. I always thought chalets were of more basic construction than casas. Thankyou for your help.
