About Servais and Helena Boosten

Servais and Helena Boosten recently acquired this dream country mansion. They have sympathetically restored the exterior of the building and Helena has used her skills as an interior designer to turn the interior into a 21st century luxury home, with all the modern conveniences and high standard finishes that one would expect from a property of this outstanding caliber. Air conditioning in every bedroom.

In addition to this property, Servais and Helena own and rent other exclusive villas and mansions within the Sitges area. Please visit www.sitgesluxuryrentals.com to see our other beautiful villas, Casa Nova Estate and Masia Victoria

Servais and Helena Boosten purchased this villa in 2014

Why Servais and Helena Boosten chose Sitges - Garraf

We chose to build our lives and our businesses in Sitges for many reasons, namely...

Location, location location: it's so easy to go almost anywhere as Barcelona Airport is only 40 minutes away and the bus and train services are really efficient and not at all expensive.

Coming from northern Europe, we truly appreciate the 300 sunny days of the year that Sitges offers due to it’s unique micro climate and one more from our long list of why we live here...ah yes, the exceptional, utterly stunning property we own and with Vila Valenti, the sheer magnitude of refurbishing such a stunning historic building was a challenge we could not refuse!

What makes this villa unique

The mansion had been in the same family for many generations: they were furniture makers of international repute. We love the history of the estate and the way it was constructed with such design and style for example, the truly amazing Italian handmade glass chandelier and the original wooden gates and doors with huge iron keys and bolts. To live with this history in a modern setting is what for us, makes a dream come true.

Lovely stay in this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this beautiful house! It was such a great vacation. We went there with a whole group ( 5 families) and this house was big enough and we could even play hide and seek. Inside the house, there were enough bedrooms and everybody had there own bathroom. The service we got from Servais and Helena was also fantastic! Therefore we want to thank them again. For us, this was a wonderfull week and a week we will never forget. The location, with a beautiful garden and swimmingpool, was also great. Unfortunately the time of the year was to early for a nice dive into the water, too cold, but the site of it was beautiful. The house was near Sitges and that is a lovely place to be.

like a fairytale

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with five families (20 people) in this super villa/finca! Still plenty of room left for more people or space left to repose, inside as well as outside. Tasteful decorating, nice atmosphere and fairylike surroundings! Mariëlle and Ludo

Superb house and location with unique atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We visited this awesome house with a party of 20-25 people, both adults and children. All had an awesome stay. The unique atmosphere and layout, all rooms have en-suite bathrooms (!), makes it a perfect stay for a holiday, celebration or special occasion (e.g. wedding ). It is very close located to Sitges with its marina, beach and restaurants as well as nature Parc del Garraf for awesome hikes or sport activities.

We booked a traditional Spanish tapas diner via the manager/ owner on our arrival day, highly recommended! Fantastic food and wine by candlelight gave our stay the perfect start and boost.

Certainly a visit more than worth while and one to put on the bucket list.

Owners are very service focussed and know their way around in the area, perfect guides and contacts to get to know the region and it's (food & drinks) highlights.

Destination Wedding at Villa Catalina

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful. The house is a maze, with hallways and rooms tucked away in narrow hallways and around hidden corners; but great for kids to explore and guests who were looking for some quiet/private time. The outdoor space was AMAZING!! We chose Villa Catalina as the location of our destination wedding because of the beautiful pictures of the property and we were not disappointed. The massive table under the lit trees, the lounge areas flanking both ends of the courtyard, the open space by the pool (which we used for our ceremony) and the pool were all welcome spaces for our guests to socialize, relax, and enjoy their holiday. Thank you to the staff for the help leading up to our week long getaway and all of their help during the week of our stay.

Beautiful Villa surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5

We rented the villa for 7 days for our family reunion.

We were 34 of us, ages from 11 to 60. It is stunning villa with a lot of old charm character. We used the terrace for a lot of our impromptu gathering. Since the villa is quite secluded, we enjoyed playing music at any volume.

Villa is close to beaches in Sitges and Barcelona is train ride way plus you can go for a hike around the villa.

We headed out to the beach in Sitges couple of times during the week. Few us took the train to

The rooms are quite spread out, so I would suggest getting the floor plan prior so that you can plan ahead. It worked out well in our case, where we let the kids (aged 11 to 19) take over the full fist floor.

Servais and Helena were very good hosts and answered our questions and gave us advice. If there is one suggestion i would give them, is it would have have been nice if they had checked in on us during the week. To ask if everything is good and is there anything we need.

The pool was nice, wish they had shaded areas around the pool, oh yeah be aware of mosquitoes and bring lots of repellent.

A/C's are only in the bedrooms and not in the common area. It might be good to ask for fans especially in Summer months.

Overall, we had an amazing and very memorable time ..

Villa Catalina is a short drive/train journey from Sitges and Barcelona.

 

Sitges offers 4km of palm-fringed boulevard, 17 sandy beaches and bays, a beautiful marina, a busy festive calendar with some truly amazing fiestas, first-rate tourist facilities, sporting activities, dozens of bars, cafes, restaurants and loads of great designer shops. 

There is something in Sitges for everyone, its a very difficult place to get bored in, plus Sitges is also on the doorstep of one of Europe’s most beautiful and exciting cities...Barcelona.

Barcelona is a breathtaking Mediterranean city and host of the 1992 Olympic Games.  It offers everything a tourist could possible ever want to see or do and much more.  It’s full of history, art and culture, the birthplace of the architectural genius Antoni Guadí, and painters such as Joan Miró and Santiago Rusiñol, writer Carlos Ruiz Zafón and home to Barcelona Football Club.  

If sightseeing gets too much, the golden beaches of the city offer lazy sun filled days bathing in the safe, clean Mediterranean waters surrounding the city.  

Other places to visit/things to do:

PortAventura Park (similar to Disney World)

Waterparks

Wine and Cava (Catalan Champagne) tasting tours.

Gastronomic weekends.

Walking and biking trails.

Many golf courses in the area.

Skiing in the Pyrenees is 2 hours away.
