History. Almiral de la font, meaning "admiral of the (water) spring", enjoys huge grounds whose xarello grapes are used for its own brut nature and white wine. Amongst the 14 kilometres of private tracks you will also find pear, olive, cherry, walnut and almond trees in addition to many naturally growing herbs and vegetables (asparagus, rosemary and mushrooms). The house, a protected building and fortified masia, was built before 1592 and was extended in 1800. It has been and continues to be a significant landmark in the Garraf area and was formerly used exclusively for winemaking and farming. Though totally renovated and adapted to a high standard of modern comfort, the original details have been preserved, in particular the wine presses and bodega. The windows have been enlarged to allow in more natural light. Balconies and terraces have been added.

Almiral de la Font, what a fantastic place. This property caters for all ages, I was there with my daughter, grand-daughters, great granddaughters, and members of our extended family and friends. 28 people in all. Age range from 12 months to 73 years of age. We made full use of the cinema, swimming pool, jacuzzi, barbecue, in fact everything. A beautiful property well worth the cost. Our only problem was the mosquitos seemed to relish the repellant we used. Even so I would certainly stay there again. Our stay this occasion was for the wedding of my granddaughter, and what a heartfelt sincere ceremony it was, enjoyed by all in a wonderful setting.
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

We rented this wonderful villa --just from pictures on the website-- on a weekend in October for my husband's birthday. It was the best investment ever! For the memories it gave us and our guests of our wonderful reunion in such a beautiful setting, the dividends will never cease.
Everybody congratulated us for a memorable and well-organized party but credit really goes to Paul, the owner, who was extremely helpful and professional. How was it possible to organize a big party from overseas? Paul is the answer. Quick to reply, to the point, full of helpful details.
Paul has a network of reliable professionals that made the event as smooth as possible. From ana the chef, who made the most wonderful paella and tapas, to Paul the flamenco guitarist who entertained us wonderfully and unobtrusively while we devoured ana's masterpieces, to Glenn the DJ who made us dance all night, to Gaby the cleaner who made everything tidy in the morning when we are too drunk to take the wine glasses to the kitchen the night before... Everyone thought I was a party genie, when it was really Paul and his team who made everything happen.
Did I say I booked everything just from seeing the online photos? Well, here is the surprise: Almiral is even nicer than the photos! I don't know if it was the just the summer weather we had on the weekend of our party, but the house just exudes a magical feel that makes all your worldly, ultimately petty, concerns vanish.
My guests tremendously enjoyed the whole property. The adults were duly impressed, but the kids -- the more demanding of guests! -- couldn't get enough of the place! We had 13 year olds and under 10s that just loved the house and the grounds. I didn't expect that!
For an unforgettable party in Spain, or really just a tranquil oasis for a relaxing holiday, the delightful almiral de la Font fits the bill and more, and Paul is the best person to help. We are already planning our next excuse to go back!

My husband and I recently got married in sitges and stayed at almiral for 3 days with our family and friends. From the minute we arrived we knew we had picked the right setting for our wedding, Paul the owner was in constant contact in the months leading up to our arrival and accommodated us in every way he could by recommending the house chef (Gillian who is amazing) and putting extra beds in rooms to accommodate our guests, he also met us on arrival to welcome us and explain everything, he couldn't do enough for us to make sure we settled in ok. As for the house, it is breath taking, my guests will be talking about it for years to come. The view from the patio area and pool is gorgeous and if you take a room with a terrace it's lovely to sit with a glass of wine and look over the vineyards below. Every person in the house from old to young had something to occupy them, from the cinema for the children, games room for both adults and children, the pool and jacuzzi... I could go on!
Almiral is a unique setting for a wedding or even a special family break.
The villa is only 5 minutes outside sitges by car, so renting a car would be advisable, however there is plenty of info provided with taxi numbers if you don't drive, or are going into sitges for a meal and a drink.
Almiral has all the mod cons as well as keeping the originality of the villa.
The only thing I would say is bring mosquito spray as most of my guests were bitten, but that's not a complaint!

We stayed at almiral De La Font with Family and friends for our wedding. The whole week was magical! The location is stunning and you can never get bored of the view! There is so much to do at the villa you don't really want to go anywhere else and there is always another bit of the villa to discover!
The mosty amazing thing about the villa is that although it ishuge and beautiful it is also homely and makes you feel instantly at home and relaxed.
A week in my life I will never ever forget!

We were celebrating a private function and were impressed by the venue. The entire house is furnished with style and you can feel the neverending hours of work which were and are continuously spent to make this place as it is.
The personality of Paul (the owner) gives this place a very sympathic touch.
Thanks for everything and we hope to come back soon !

The photos on the web site don't really do the house justice. The rooms are all so comfortable and individual, it gives you a feeling of being completely relaxed. The location is great, with wonderful views. The staff too were helpful and very friendly. We had over 60 people at our wedding, and about twenty slept over, and the house accommodated them easily. All our guests had a great time, thanks, Phil and anja.
A beautiful and wonderful retreat for extended families

We celebrated my parents 50th wedding anniversary with family from around the world ranging from 1-80 years old and I can say we all had a great time. The place was spacious, beautiful, and perfect for a family get together. It would be great to go their with friends as well. Rooms were lovely, Paul and his team were wonderful, the Riojas were juicy and the chef services provided by Gillian, Graham and Willie were amazing. We had a different cuisine every night and loved every meal. Would come back again and stay, especially now that the Euro is finally where it should be against the dollar.
