About Jonathan Kay
In 1999 we moved to Sitges to run a small 14 bedroom boutique hotel. The house purchase followed in 2005 and we have created a stylish, comfortable, relaxed home for entertaining and for us a break from the hotel. In Summer, however, we have to be on hand for the hotel and so hope that others will enjoy what we can for the rest of the year.
An accountant by profession I am a keen cook, bon-viveur and like people to enjoy staying in the house and enjoying all that it and the local areahas to offer.
Jonathan Kay purchased this chateau / country house in 2005
Why Jonathan Kay chose Canyelles
Tranquil and relaxing but only a few kilometres from Sitges and more active pursuits. The house I always loved and wanted and when the opportunity came along to purchase and then reform and complete I was unable to resist. A decision I have never regretted.
What makes this chateau / country house unique
The views and tranquillity, space and instant relaxation as soon as you enter the gates. The large 600m2 provides great entertaining space for up to 18 people or for entertaining up to 120!! for a special occasion.
Great views over the wine growing areas that surround the area and on to the Monserrat mountains, with their gothic monastery and imposing peaks.
The space provided includes all furniture for the garden and around the pool, BBQs. Museums, galleries, great shopping, a chocolate factory with free samples, wineries, cava houses, local markets, country walks, cycling tracks are all on hand.
