An outstanding venue for a special holiday
An outstanding venue for a special holiday
This place is truly amazing. We booked it for a special holiday for our extended family (18 of us ranging in age from 10 to 87) and everyone absolutely loved it. I have to say that it looked too good to be true on the website so I took the precaution of going on an inspection trip a couple of months before we were due to arrive, just to make sure it was suitable, and we were delighted to find that it not only matched the description on the website but exceeded all our expectations. After our trip, we indicated various preferences to the amiable Scottish owner, John, such as additional beds in particular rooms to suit our group, and he accommodated all our requests without fuss. He also helped us arrange a private chef (Jonathan Rodrigues) who provided a sumptuous dinner on three of the nights we stayed. That was a real bonus. Jonathan was not only a tremendous chef but very flexible in catering for a wide range of tastes. He did the shopping for the wine and food for the meal, set the table (inside or outside on the terrace as we preferred), served dinner and cleared up afterwards. The property has great character but has also been completely modernised and fitted out with a range of facilities that really enhanced our holiday. There was everything from tennis to table football but the pool was the centre-piece, surrounded by plenty of comfortable loungers, tables and chairs with umbrellas and shaded areas. The house is set in beautiful grounds with a pond, barbecue area, lawn big enough to practise golf and other nooks and crannies with additional seating, not to mention the separate casita overlooking the tennis court. Inside, the house is naturally cool and the air conditioning is efficient. There are several reception rooms and plenty of space for everyone to find a quiet corner to listen to music or read or play pool. There is wifi in the main Blue Room but it also works outside on part of the terrace. The bedrooms, all ensuite, are spacious and the beds are all comfortable. There is a wrap-around balcony that extends all around the first floor with views not only over the gardens but to the sea beyond. The approach to the property through an area that is unattractive can be disconcerting but the grounds are completely secure, surrounded by a high wall and accessed through electronic gates. The house is cleaned and beds made every day and the gardens and pool are also tended every morning. The whole package was just perfect for what we wanted.

A luxurious Gem in Catalunya
A luxurious Gem in Catalunya
We had a 60th birthday party here and were impressed not only with the level of cleanliness and unique decor, but also, with the service provided by the owners. A great place for a gathering of any kind (including weddings now that they have the chapel finished), it sits in the midst of a rather mixed urban development, but when the gates close, the outside world is forgotten and it is a paradise. Close to Sitges, a premier international beach town, and Vilanova, a town with a more local flavour, both well worth visiting, we also were directed to a couple of fabulous wineries and restaurants. They arranged rides and the drivers were fabulous, but there is also room to park cars if you want. We know the area well, and even so, were impressed by the owners suggestions. Enjoy the incredible pool, the lovely gardens, and be happy to know that they do alot to make the place environmentally friendly and are working towards an ever better environmental footprint. This is super spot......

Year Purchased: 2001
About: I am a Scot who moved here after spending many holidays in Sitges. I am 65 and am married to a local woman and we have a 14 year old daughter. The local culture and family life,along with the excellent weather really suit me.
Why Sitges - Garraf Area:
We found the Villa in 2001 and loved it although it was a total ruin. We recognised the potential and are delighted that we have had the opportunity to restore it to its former glory, with modern technology. It is only 35 minutes from Barcelona airport but when you enter the walled gardens you are in a private paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The Masia has all you need and many of our clients never leave during their stay even though it is only a short drive to the busy holiday resort of Sitges where there are lots of trendy restaurants and shops. We can provide just about anything you require such as a personal chef, wine tours,tours of Barcelona, golf tours, tapas courses, etc...whatever you need!
