Drive up to the majestic Almiral de la Font villa, situated in the picturesque countryside of Sitges, and you’ll feel as though you’ve time traveled to another era. Sitting proudly on a hillside, the masia—a Catalan manor house—offers picture-perfect views of the Garaf National Park, abounding mountains, and nearby sea. The properties 350 acres are dotted with pear, olive, walnut and almond trees. Vineyards line a few acres too, yielding grapes that produce local favorite: cava.
The charming history is balanced by the comforts of modernity. Well-suited for large groups, the villa is equipped with everything for all ages. Have a movie marathon in the home theatre or read a book by the crackling fireplace. Enjoy your glass of wine—a vintage selected right from your own wine cellar—on one of the beautiful terraces or the plush Moroccan lounge. When you fancy a swim, dip into the heated pool and test out the even warmer jacuzzi. A housekeeper visits the property everyday to promise the villa is kept in prime condition from corner to corner.
The rental is comprised of both a masia and casita. The masia is fit for large families, corporate groups and special events such as weddings, filming and production launches. Adjoining the masia is the casita, a storybook two-storey cottage, an ideal private are for teenagers or couples to have their own space. Rustic stone walls, soft hues and vibrant furnishings decorate both the casita and masia. Though most original aspects were preserved, the windows were enlarged to allow even more sunlight to illuminate the space. Bright sun shines in from dawn until dusk.
A total of ten bedrooms can accommodate up to 28 guests. The master bedroom on the first floor is furnished with a king size bed, sofa bed, en suite bathroom and a lovely sun terrace. Four other bedrooms also boast a king size bed and en suite bathroom, while the others have either two twins, queen size or double beds.
A stay at Almiral de la Font promises you will get a true taste of Catalan culture. Surrounded by gorgeous grounds and living in a simple yet elegant masia will leave you with a new understanding of this way of life. The beach is an easy 10 minute drive away so you can feel the salt of the Mediterranean sea. A little further is Barcelona city, where you can witness the creations of Gaudi first hand.

The villa was beautiful and as advertised. The region did not offer as much to do as I might have hoped - other than going into Barcelona which was not our intention each day. - Teresa G., Ontario, Canada
