Make a holiday villa in Anoia your home away from home

Villas in Anoia are located in a rural part of Catalonia that is full of natural beauty and cultural interest. There are tall pine-clad hills, large fertile plains, and you'll be close to the historic Benedictine abbey at Montserrat. The terrain affords a wealth of outdoor fun, from hot-air balloon rides to mountain biking. You'll be able to find plenty of peace and seclusion at an Anoia holiday home, but will always have the option of Barcelona and the resorts of the Mediterranean, which are both easily reached and offer fantastic days out. Anoia villas are traditional rustic buildings restored with comfort and indulgence in mind. And as many are converted farmhouses they are generally capable of accommodating groups of six or more.

Things to do

-Local heritage. In the eastern part of Anoia is the famous mountain, Montserrat, noted for its remarkably craggy profile. This site has held cultural significance for many centuries, and this is where you'll find the Benedictine Abbey, Santa Maria de Montserrat. It stands more than 1000 metres above the valley and one of the best ways to get up there is via a cable car. Part of the complex is a basilica, which houses a museum displaying art by Picasso, Dali and El Greco.

-Outdoor recreation. Horseback riding and ballooning are two ways to experience the varied scenery around Anoia, which includes both mountains and plains. A wealth of hiking and mountain biking routes are also available. They'll take you through pine forest and on the way you'll spot old wells, towers, historic mills, hermitages and the remnants of medieval castles at places like Argencola and Copons.

-Beaches. The coast is just over half an hour from the Anoia area, and one of the closest resorts is Vilanova i la Geltru. Here there's an exquisite golden sandy beach that has been awarded the Blue Flag for its amenities and cleanliness. Just west of there is another Blue Flag beach at Llarga, while to the east is the vibrant resort of Sitges, home to another 17 beaches.

-Barcelona. This city is too close not to visit. It's great for a day of retail therapy., with a tremendous range of stores - you've got the trendy boutiques of Gracia, the chic fashion houses and luxury brands in L'Eixample, or all the top high-street brands in the Ciutat Vella. For sightseeing there's much more than you can cram into a day, but a good place to start would be the architect Antoni Gaudi's various quirky buildings like the Sagrada Familia basilica and Casa Batllo in L'Eixample.

-Food and drink. Anoia has a range of traditional food products, including a choice of cured sausages and pates, as well as cow, sheep and goat cheese. Chickpeas and honey are said to be of a very high quality here too. In fact chickpeas are an important ingredient in the local dish, pan-fried cod with spinach.

Great location&pool. Many amenities for families.

5 of 5
This home was a delight to stay in. Well stocked and large kitchen where to cook family meals. Meri was a wonderful host. Her property was in perfect shape, and she herself was great at communicating with me and my family before, and during our stay. We were minutes from a supermarket and restaurant, and getting both into Barcelona and the Anoia wine region was a breeze using the motorway. We were a small group with kids, but I can see the house accommodating much larger groups. Being able to use the BBQ right outside, next to the pool was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this home, and will be back myself next year!

Can suyas is tucked away - very peaceful - surrounded by woodland and vineyards. The house is very big and well decorated. A new kitchen with everything you will need. Comfy beds. Great showers with plenty of hot water. Outside is a great terrace area, lovely pool and a seperate covered BBQ area. Plus a huge garden. The surrounding area is very rural which although it does mean a drive to shops etc it's very quiet. A great family holiday venue
