For centuries our family has lived here and grown grapes to make wine and cava. Around the estate are forests, vineyards and olive trees.
Our house is perfect for a couple. Enjoy a romantic dinner outside, relax at the pool and take a walk on our ancestral vineyard. It is conveniently very close to Barcelona (45min drive), the airport (40min), the beach (15min) and more!
-Note: For summer we prioritize longer stays (1 week at least).
-For New Year's we accept 3-day reservations (30th, 31st and 1st)
-For guests who want to check in on Sunday, note that sometimes we let guests who check out on Sundays stay longer to enjoy the day.
You're a brief drive to Barcelona (40-45 minutes), a stone throw away from some of the best restaurants in the world (Celler de Can Roca, Disfrutar, Tickets, Sant Pau and more)... 15 minutes from the beach (in Sitges, Vilanova, and elsewhere), close to wineries, medieval villages, the stunning mountaintop monastery of Montserrat, art museums and galleries, two and a half hours from Madrid by high-speed train, and about 10 seconds from beautiful trails which will lead you through my family's ancestral vineyard.
Use your house to relax or as a hub to visit our amazing country. Priorat, Tarragona, Costa Brava, even France are a drive away. Explore more and venture to Madrid, Andalucia, the Basque Country, Galicia, even Portugal!
Our one-room, two-bathroom house is an elegant, comfortable, private, affordable, and incredibly relaxing way to visit one of Spain’s most vibrant wine-making regions and get a taste of one of the country’s hidden gems, the Penedès region in Catalonia.
This is a unique opportunity to stay in a house from 1600. This part of the house was renovated but maintains the charm from old times, when several generations would live in the same house. It is a small (yet large!) part of the old house and it was used as quarters for the younger generation. They would all be in the same house but have “some privacy”.
The house has been in the family since 1600, however during the Spanish Civil War (Between 1936 and 1939) my family had to flee to France and the house was occupied. Many of the old documents were burned during that time, as well as the interior of the chapel.
However, many invaluable objects remain. For instance, a stunning dowry (or hope) box at the entrance. The brides that would marry into the family brought this chest with fine clothes. The nicer the chest and the clothes, the more valuable the dowry was.
The same place where the chest is, in the entrance, has many old handmade plates hanging in the wall. Check out the old class picture from when my grandfather went to university in Barcelona in 1923. As you can see, the class was very small!
If you check out the living room, you’ll see the fireplace stands out. It is a traditional “modernist” design from 1900 and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary of Montserrat (which you should visit, too! It’s located at the top of the mountain of Montserrat).
The last round of renovation is from 1993, when my wife and I and our first daughter moved in. As tradition marks, when my parents passed away we moved into the “main” house.
If you look out of the window of the living room you’ll see our beautiful chapel from 1623 (check the inscriptions on the wall!). It is dedicated to Santiago (Saint James), the patron saint of Spain. Sadly, it was burned during the Spanish Civil War but restored later. Let us know and we’ll give you a tour! You can see the relics, too. Oh, and the chapel is part of one of the routes of the Camino de Santiago (de Compostela).
You'll have access to the house in its entirety with a separate, private entrance from our main home. The space is fit for up to 2 people and is seconds away from the family vineyard -- a place all guests are encouraged to enjoy -- complete with a shared pool area for optimal sun bathing, a charcoal barbecue and a gorgeous outdoor dining area (please see photos).
Your house itself is a quiet, charming escape complete with a fully equipped kitchen to meet all of your cooking and dining needs; it has plates, glasses, pots, pans, microwave, Nespresso machine, and oven. Ooh, and complementary olive oil made on premises from our very own olive trees. Truly fantastic.
The bathrooms include fresh towels and we always provide fresh linens.
You will have access to the vineyards for beautiful walks and great runs; I recommend early morning runs or runs at sundown. If you need anything or have any questions, we're here to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible!
Shaded parking is readily across from your house, as well as recycling bins.
The swimming pool and parking spaces are shared with the hosts.
Our level of interaction will depend on what makes you comfortable. I, Santi, work in the vineyards every day and my wife or I are often around to chat or help as much as you need and/or want. We are available to make sure your traveling needs are met. If we're not home, you can always call or text us; we'll get back to you quickly to make sure everything is set.
We have one German shepherd name Furla (a.k.a. Furlita). She’s super friendly but likes to bark when she meets new people. But have no fear! She’s completely harmless and just wants to make her presence known. A nice belly rub will make her your friend instantly, should you decide to say hi to her. Otherwise she’ll stay in her own private area right next to our home for the duration of your stay.
Disclaimer: This listing has been edited by my daughter Maria, who speaks English well. She also replies to messages in English most of the time and translates for me. My wife and I speak French and some English, as well as Catalan (our first language) and Spanish. Don't be surprised if you meet me and I am not so good at English! We are working on it. Thank you!
