Overview

Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Canyelles - Casa Verde, Vora Sitges

Luxury country 7 double bedroom 7 bathroom house retreat with private pool

A classic country house finished with great taste and aplomb. Well appointed and furnished with everything provided. Quiet and tranquil setting that is fully secure but also only minutes from the beach and nightlife of Sitges or only 30 minutes from exploring all that Barcelona has to offer. Large private and secure retractable cover and solar panel heating, sun loungers, gardens, pond, lots of outside space. Large bedrooms each with a bathroom. Air conditioning, heating. Large kitchen with 2 ovens, American fridge/freezer, water fountain, softened water and filtered drinking water. Mature gardens offering shade and sun and choice of areas for outside dining. Quality bed linens, towels and pool towels all provided. Satellite TV, wifi.

You genuinely should want for nothing.

A great base for just relaxing or for exploring all that Catalonia has to offer, which is easily reached on the excellent road network that is close-by. Clean country air. Great little restaurants. Wineries, cava houses, a chocolate factory, market days in nearby towns, a railway museum, art galleries, churches, monasteries, walking trails, cycling tracks, tennis courts are all within easy reach or just outside the gates of the house. Balmy days by the pool or in the garden and hedonistic evenings relaxing with friend and family.

The interior woodwork of the house is truly stunning, from a by-gone age. & bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 3 lounges, bodega (wine store)

Just 8kms or a 12 minute drive from Sitges we find this elegant country house. Offering 598m² of accommodation set in grounds of 3500m². It consists of three floors with three lounges, dining room, bodega, gun/safe room and 7 large, double bedrooms each with new bath or shower rooms. Additionally there is a cottage in the garden for additional guests. There is a large solar panel heated swimming pool with a telescopic retractable cover enabling use year round. There are mature, well maintained gardens with several fruit trees on three levels and a pond with coy carp and goldfish. There are several tiled terraces and pressed together with several balconies each with marble balustrades. The house benefits from gas central heating, separate air conditioning for each bedroom and the main lounges. The house has a large well equipped kitchen with two ovens and American style double fronted refrigerator/freezer and breakfast bar. There is an open fire in the dining-room and den and a wood burning stove in the main living room. The house benefits from spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and all the way to the mountains of Montserrat. Garage parking for up to 4 cars. Elegantly furnished. It is a luxury in the midst of nature.

There are really excellent road links within a 3 minute drive of the house to the A7 autopista giving easy access to Barcelona city and airport and indeed the rest of Spain, as this is the main artery of the country.

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. The quality of the construction is first class with true quality materials used, especiall solid wwod and high specification matched veneers (the previouse owner who started the construction was a master craftsman in wood and fitted out royal palaces and used some of these materials for his own house. For instance the windows are all bullet proof! And the interior doors solid hardwoods with marquetry inlays, truly beautiful. At once conventional and modern.)

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.

We thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

So much space. Great bathrooms. Large pool which was a great hit with the kids. Enjoyed your recommendations and advice. Keep up the good work and certainly others could learn from your professionalism. Especially liked the provision of basic store-cupboard items and quality linens. No problem in recommending you and your property.

Wow! What a great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Anything and everything that we could have wanted was there. Thanks for the pre-arrival shop and the provision of essentials such as herbs and spices, shampoos and gels. Also being able to harvest fruit and herbs straight from the garden and orchards made the kids realise that not everything comes from a packet and is better when straight from the garden. Good quality bed-linens and towels were a very welcome provision. You guys know your stuff. The whole process went smoothly and professionally and making ‘phone contact was especially re-assuring, although the emails were accurate and professional too. Next time we will pack less!

Owner's Response: Glad that our efforts were appreciated and that you enjoyed your holiday in what is certainly a very special house. I am pleased that we appear to have learned how to be responsive and provide good value and service. After 16 years of running a small boutique hotel in Sitges, which is now our home, I am pleased when guests enjoy and can appreciate our country house, which is only 12 minutes from Sitges but which offers tranquility, space and a pace of life that is eminently suitable for the holiday-maker and friends/family. You guys were excellent guests and we would welcome your return or other owners. Thanks.

Just like to record our thanks....

It is not easy to arrange to get 3 families together but you made all of the arrangements regarding this fantastic house really simple and straightforward. Your help and suggestions with things to do and see to keep the kids happy were more than fully appreciated – we have left you some of the chocolates left over from the chocolate factory visit. The house and surroundings were as you described, magical and unique. You are lucky to own and live in such a wonderful place. It is an impressive house with everything that we wanted and more! We will be recommending to friends, neighbours and colleagues. We would especially like to thank Eddie and the cleaning girls who did a fantastic job. Unobtrusive and efficient. Again many thanks and kisses.

Arne and Lisa.

Car: recommended

A stunningly attractive 7 bedroomed, 7 bath/shower room country house set in the countryside but close enough to Sitges, Vilanova, Barcelona and Vilafranca del Penedes. A secure tranquil location for relaxing and making a base for exploring the surrounding countryside : hill walking, wine tours, cycling and golf are all to hand. Within 10 minutes drive are the seaside resorts of Sitges and Vilanova I la Geltru. Excellent road and rail infrastructure makes exploring the area simple and easy. The house affords wonderful views all the way to the Monserrat mountains and Penedes vine growing fields. The house is approx. 600m2 set in grounds of 3500m2 with gardens, (optional) covered large swimming pool, orchard, pond and much more. The house is air-conditioned in Summer and has gas central heating in Winter. The swimming pool has solar panel heating. Great entertaining space that has been used for retreats, magazine photo-shoots and as an holistic healing centre and boutique hotel. Now reverted back to holiday or longer term rental for enjoying all that this part of Catalonia has to offer.

The house is fully provided with bed-linens and towels, including pool towels.

It is very well and comfortably furnished offering lots of space including 3 lounges.

With the use of sofa beds (all present) up to 18 people can be accommodated in great comfort and security.

Great space outside which has gas BBQ, normal BBQ and terrace and pool furniture to just sit, relax and let the world float by or enjoy the country pursuits that surround you, including some good restaurants. Night life is to hand with a 10 minute car or taxi ride.

Potter about in the garden, feed the goldfish, dine al-fresco or more formally around the dining table.

Used for wedding receptions, product launches and magazine photo-shoot backdrops the house has entertained footballers, screen stars, singers and many interesting people.

Private catering is available from an award winning chef and staff, who can also recommend on the many great wines available in the area.

There are excellent road connections to nearby towns such as Sitges, Vilanova i la Geltru and Vilafranca del Penedes and, of course, Barcelona. The airport of Barcelona is only 26kms away and the city 36kms by motorway - only 30 minutes easy drive.

Great golf courses, from Pitch & Putt to championship, are within a 1 hour drive and less.

Puerto Aventura theme park and waterpark is only 30 minutes away.

The chocolate factory of Simon Coll and cava wineris of San Sadurni are less than 20 minutes drive away, with excellent tours of Simon Coll, Cordoniu cava or Torres for other great wines or even just small producers. The Priorat area which produces some of Spain's best wines is 30 minutes away too.

Sitges or Barcelona nightlife or cultural sides are within easy striking distance for great days out.

The Monserrat mountains can be seen clearly from the house and a drive there is worthwhile to see and kiss the black Madonna.

Hill walking, painting (in great light!) are also recommended and for the fit mountain biking.

An airport pick-up service can be arranged as can shopping for stocking the villa. Grocery shopping is only 6 minutes away.

There are a wealth of really good restaurants in the area which offer fantastic value and original and traditional meal options.

Tarragona with its rich Roman history - where Tiberius was proclaimed the second Roman Emperor as governor of Spain - is within an easy drive and makes a good day out. Shopping, history, culture and night-life abound in the ever-vibrant city of Barcelona.

All in all you can enjoy an activity packed holiday or simply relax and enjoy the tranquility of the house and grounds and its setting.
