A luxuriously restored masia just South of Barcelona
Surrounded by beautiful National Park Garraf in the Pinedes wine region just south of Barcelona, villa Almiral de la Font is a ‘masia’ (Catalan manor house) one of the best examples of the “basilica” style of building in Catalonia.
Originally built in 1592 and extended in 1805, this luxury villa was restored with high-tech modern amenities whilst retaining the historic charm and character of the original building.
Almiral de la Font has more than 300 acres of private grounds with vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees, yet is only a 30 minute drive from Barcelona and 10 minutes from the glamour beach resort of Sitges.
The villa is one of the most impressive and spectacular holiday properties for rent in the Sitges area and offers 11 bedrooms in total, which can accommodate up to 28 guests: four double bedrooms, another three suites with two or three bedrooms, and an additional suite with its own living room. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms and are tastefully decorated.
Additionally, a separate guesthouse (Casita) is situated very close to the villa, featuring a kitchen and bathroom, and separate entrance.
The individual features of the villa include home cinema, the media room, and a game room with pool tables and ping-pong.
The outdoor area enjoys a Jacuzzi, basketball court, trampoline and a barbeque.
