Originally from Australia and now making Spain my home for more than 29 years. I fell in love with this area of Spain due to all the culture and diversity that Catalunya has to offer.I feel as I have always lived here and have many warm and close friends.
Tony purchased this Farmhouse in 2006
Why Tony chose Canyelles
This particular property was purchased in 2006, but have been living in the area since 2000. The property is both remote and secluded,surrounded by vineyards, but yet within in 15 mins you are on the beach or in Sitges and within 40 mins, you are in the centre of Barcelona. Nearby are the famous vineyards of the Penedes region, and the villa is ideally located for walks and rockclimbing. The village of Sitges is easily reached , and is famous for its night life especially in the summer months. The city of Vilanova i la Geltru is only 10 kms away, with beaches and waterfront seafood restaurants.

A perfect escape for the whole family
Set in the hills, this spacious property gave refuge and escape for three generations totalling 6 adults and 4 children. During our 10 day stay we chose to stay at the property for 9 of these days.
Thank you Adam.....it was a pleasure to host you and your extended family!
A wonderful relaxing family holiday in beautiful countryside
We stayed in the third week of June and were lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic week of hot sunny weather.
Tony, the villa owner, is helpful and super-friendly - ready to assist whenever needed but leaving us to enjoy the villa for the duration of our stay.
The photos of the pool and gardens cannot possibly portray just how glorious the scenery truly is. The villa is set in quiet rural countryside and the pool and gardens are nestled against the backdrop of mountains in the near distance - absolutely stunning. The location is perfect, located in the small village of Canyelles which is about a 40 minute drive from Barcelona along empty highways (compared to the UK !). Canyelles itself has several very nice family run restaurants and a decent size supermarket (Euro Spar) which is well stocked, is open until 9pm every weekday and is even open on Sundays which is rare for Spanish supermarkets.
A few pointers that might help future guests - the villa is set about one mile down a mostly unmade road, essentially a single lane dirt track which is littered with sometimes quite large holes. You will want to seriously think about renting a 4WD/SUV as a standard family car would definitely struggle. It's worth pointing out though that access via an unmade road means that the villa is rural which is definitely a plus point.
The villa has a TV in the living room (the only room which has a TV) which receives terrestrial Spanish stations only - no cable or satellite TV is available. There is however a good internet/Wi-Fi server (8mbps) so if you want to watch UK television you should subscribe to a VPN service, plug your tablet/phone into the TV (you'll need an HDMI cable for this) and stream TV via ITV Hub, iPlayer, etc.
One final point - the villa has air conditioning but only in three of the bedrooms, two with fixed AC units and the other with a portable AC unit. There is no AC in the living room or the kitchen, both of which can get quite warm in the evenings. Leaving windows and doors open in the evenings is not really an option as mosquitoes will quickly find their way in. Fans are available in every room but are no substitute for AC.
These comments are nothing more than pointers for future guests, better to be prepared. Remember that the villa is rural and the rustic charm is definitely part of the attraction. We had a great stay here and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Would we stay again - absolutely yes, in a heartbeat !
Lovely relaxing Holiday - excellent owner
Had a lovely family stay here. Property nice and clean with ample room. Nice living quarters in the fact that the bedrooms are quite separate from each other - 4 singles together, 2 doubles together and 1 double on its own - so good for several families.
Lots of equipment in the villa especially kitchen equipment.
Lovely welcome pack provided by the owner Tony. Tony went out of his way to ensure our stay was comfortable responding to every need we required and also responding immediately to a small emergency we had!
The outside pool is fantastic with a lovely patio area around it, but several shady areas for you to sit if it gets too warm.
Lots of places to visit close by - Sitges only 15 min drive, Barcelona - just a 40min train journey away and Portaventura is only about 40 mins away too. The nearest large supermarket and petrol station is only 5 mins away.
Amazing place, excellent host
This is a great house, beautifully furnished, with everything you could need. Tony went above and beyond to help us, provide anything, and explain everything. Well worth the visit.
Thank you Mark...it was a pleasure to meet you and your extended family, and I am happy that you enjoyed your stay together ! Best, Tony
Fantastic, well-equipped villa
We had a fantastic and relaxing week. Villa is rural but not isolated and only 10-15 mins from Sitges which is a lovely resort with plenty of great restaurants. Shops and other restaurants much closer in local village and town Vilanova which also had a great beach. Took train from local station to Barcelona for easy 45 min journey but spent most of time just relaxing in the garden by the pool or under the fabulous garden shelter. Tony was very welcoming and helpful. A great place to stay.
a perfect time in a wonderful house
From booking to communication with the landlord to the accommodation and the stay everything was perfect.
The finca is fully and completely the information and is very well maintained and clean. The house is remote from the resort, but only a few minutes away by car. Perfect to enjoy peace and to be undisturbed.
Due to the generous layout, the many bedrooms and bathrooms you will find peace and quiet in the house and can retreat if necessary.
In good weather, the great garden with a huge patio and large pool invites you to spend most of your time outside.
The place Canyelles is optimally located.
In just 40 minutes you are in the center of Barcelona. 30 minutes to the airport. The beach (Sitges) is about 15 minutes.
In the village itself you will find a bakery and supermarket for daily meals.
The landlord (Tony) is very friendly and looks great.
We are happy to have spent the holiday in this finca. We would like to repeat the holiday there.
Thank you Alexander for your kind remarks and I am really happy that you and your group enjoyed your stay....come back and see us ! Best regards
