About Carmen Westerkamp

In 1999, the Dutch couple Fares & Carmen bought this masia dating back from 1608. Whilst living here with their 4 children, they restored the masia into a fantastic historical villa with full modern comfort. Carmen used her experience as a designer at Endemol Productions by styling and decorating the interior.

After serious landscaping they made surrounding nature accessible for walks and a seriously large swimming pool was build including a big terrace with outdoor kitchen.

In 2014 the whole family moved back to the Netherlands in order to give the children appropriate education. Now they offer their villa to guest from all over the world so that they can experience the immense tranquillity, nature, environment, comfort and peace.

Carmen Westerkamp purchased this villa in 2005

Why Carmen Westerkamp chose Baix Penedes

For us, the property has so many features to fall in love with... here are just a few that comes to mind:

Space, peace, tranquility, nature, the large salted pool , the chance to entertain indoors as well as outdoors and of course, the design and comfort of Mas Santo itself. So much natural light and the thickness of the walls keeping it cool during the hot summer months. A home away from home.

What makes this villa unique

The property is ideal for the summer as it is built with enormously thick walls and having galleries outside all the bedrooms, preventing the sun to access.

It has a lovely garden, ideal for children with sandbox, swings, and it is totally secluded.

The lovely pool is completely private and with a fully equipped kitchen and BBQ the perfect place to relax. Mas Santo is a haven in a busy and hectic lifestyle that most of us live in these days. It has everything you need for a great break.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Although it is still winter the temperature at Mas Santo was already 20 degrees. The housing is comfortable and the facilities are up to date and clean. Every day we made a trip in the area and enjoyed the restaurants in Sitges and the shopping in Barcelona.



The kids wanted to stay at the Villa to enjoy area and the swimming pool (That was to cold for us at this time of the year, they loved it).



Sleeping at the Villa is like being in heaven. Although everything is close by, at night it is a lovely silence.



We will be back!!!

Nice stay at Mas Santo

  • 4 of 5

We were 10 adults and 10 children that spent a week at Mas Santo. The place is very nice. The poolarea is excellent for children. Cosy livingroom and kitchen with a lot of space. It was very hot (around 38 degrees) when we were there, so we missed a fan in all the bedrooms. The pool was clean, but the playground seemed not to be used lately. We missed a lawn/green place were the children could play football etc. The cleaning inside the house was not good at our arrival. The place needed a scrubdown. I contacted the owner, Carmen, to tell her this and she did all she could right away to fix it. The sittingarea outside the kitchen seemed to not be used in a long time and was guite dirty. The cleaners should wash tables, chairs, terrace before new people arrive. The cutlery in the kitchen could have been upgraded, f.ex with things from IKEA. We missed knives and more saucepans. The place may suffer a bit of the owner not living in Spain. But all over - we had a wonderful vacation and Carmen was a very nice host. Easy to get in touch with and she responded when I told her that we were unsatisfied with the cleaning.

Fantastic Villa for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Mas Santo which is in a brilliant setting in the hills above Cunit. Although not in the best location for getting to beaches, it was a perfect villa for a big group of us (23 people) - with all the facilities we needed and with beds to spare. The villa has a huge kitchen with everything you need, and a great pool area with plenty of chairs and table space for enjoying long lazy meals. Carmen (the owner) has been very helpful and prompt at returning our deposit. Meno (the caretaker) is also great and thoroughly willing to assist if needs be. I would highly recommend Mas Santo for any large group.

Beautiful, large villa perfect for big groups!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mas Santo for such a wonderful stay last week! Global PMI Partners held their semi-annual conference at Mas Santo last week and our Partners from Austria, Belgium, China, Denmark, Germany, Israel, Japan, Sweden, UK, and USA loved their time here. It was the perfect "work hard, play hard" venue for our business meetings and quality time bonding and relaxing as a team.

It had everything we needed for work and fun, with a fully stocked kitchen full of pots, pans, dishes, glasses, stemware, cutlery, etc. There was even a full set by the pool for al fresco dining! Menno was so helpful, and went above and beyond by meeting various guests at the nearby BP gas station to help us find our way to the villa. He also treated us to a surprise bird show with falcons, buzzards, and owls - what a treat! Carrefour Express was the local supermarket, less than 10 minutes away, and the bus station is next to the Carrefour to take you to the airport.

Carmen was so helpful before, during, and after the trip answering all of my questions in a gracious, prompt manner. We couldn't have been happier with our choice of venue and hope to have the opportunity to return soon. Thanks again!!

Just WOW...

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa war fantastisch! Alles war sauber, die Anlage ist gross und bietet sogar bei 25 Personen Platz, um sich zurückzuziehen. Der Email Kontakt war reibungslos und unkompliziert. Die Übergabe funktionierte einwandfrei.

Nice to know: Der Strand von Cunit (Meer) ist zu Fuss schwer zu erreichen (30 Minuten). Hat man ein Auto zur Verfügung ist es kein Problem.

Incredible group location

  • 4 of 5

As a company we wanted a location for our anual work/meet with our international partners close to Barcelona. As we learned from others about your villa, we decided to have this week at Mas Santo.

We’ve had a fantastic week filled with a combination of relaxation and work. One of our partners is even planning to book a holiday with her family this year.

Again, thank you so much

Alexandra
