*ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

History

Almiral de la font, meaning "admiral of the (water) spring", enjoys huge grounds whose grapes are used for Freixenet, Cordoniu and other local cavas. Amongst the 14 kilometers of private tracks you will also find pear, olive, cherry, walnut and almond trees in addition to many naturally growing herbs and vegetables (asparagus, rosemary and mushrooms).

The house, a protected building and fortified masia, was built before 1592 and was extended in 1800. It has been and continues to be a significant landmark in the Garraf area and was formerly used for winemaking and farming. Though totally renovated and adapted to a high standard of modern comfort, the original details have been preserved, in particular the wine presses and bodega. The windows have been enlarged to allow in more natural light. Balconies and terraces have been added.

Absolutely Magical and Incredible Wedding Experience

  • 5 of 5

I can't put into words how pleased I was with Almiral de la Font, and with Luxury Retreats. The property is spectacular and the photos do not do it justice. Luxury Retreats help with so much transportation/logistical coordination. It was like having a second more detail oriented wedding planner. The concierge service was phenomenal. I couldn't be more thrilled.

Unique and luxurious property well suited to the large group we had.

  • 4 of 5

The villa was beautiful and as advertised.

The region did not offer as much to do as I might have hoped - other than going into Barcelona which was not our intention each day.

Very nice location, but villa very much let go.

  • 5 of 5

The location is very nice, but unfortunately the villa had clearly not been maintained, and was even not particularly clean. While we enjoyed the time because of the location, I would have to say that I was very surprised to see this type of quality from a villa from Luxury Retreats.

Large, lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, spacious, well-appointed home, near many attractions such as Sitges, Tarragona, Montserrat and other points of interest. The chef was amazing and the house caretakers were responsive and thoughtful.
