Montserrat

Montserrat is a beautiful mountain range located an hour from Sitges. It is well-known for its stunning views, unique rock formations, and the famous Montserrat Monastery. Visitors can take a cable car funicular or hike to the top of the mountain to see the sanctuary. The monastery has been operational since the 11th century and is home to the black virgin statue, considered one of Catalonia’s most important religious artifacts. The basilica is also noteworthy; it offers a beautiful blend of gothic and renaissance architectural styles. Visitors can participate in several activities, including mountain climbing, walking tours, and attending a performance by the Montserrat Boy’s Choir. With all these attractions, visiting Montserrat is a must-do for anyone interested in Catalan culture and history.

Vineyards and Wineries

Most of our villas are located in the Penedes wine region, known for producing some of the finest wines in the country. The region has mostly dry and sunny weather, which is ideal for growing grapes. The Penedes wine region produces a wide variety of wines, including red, white, and rosé; however, it is famous for its sparkling wine (cava). Artisanal winemaking is a tradition here, with small family vineyards producing top-quality wines.  While staying with us, if you would like us to organize a wine tour for you, just contact our concierge.

Barcelona Visits and Tours

The city has so much to offer that you will regret it if you don’t spend at least one full day here. Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, and both Gaudí La Pedrera and Casa Batlló are the main monuments you cannot miss. Tickets are often difficult to get, and we recommend you buy them in advance.  We can help you with that. Otherwise, a private tour can be organized, including visiting other Barcelona highlights like Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas, Montserrat, and La Barceloneta.
