Villa Garraf is an exclusive villa located in the natural park El Garraf, not far from the beach villages of Sitges and Vilanova, and metropolitan Barcelona. The estate dates from the 16th century and is the perfect location for families, friends, and special occasions for groups up to 150 guests. Its breathtaking botanic garden with romantic lounges offers privacy and guarantees the ultimate holiday experience. The proximity to the Mediterranean coast also ensures a year-round outstanding climate.
The oldest part of this historical home (\"Can\" or \"Masia\" in Catalan) dates from the 16th century. A large portion of the decorative pieces and furniture are antiques, collected by the owners over the years. Updates have conserved original elements of the villa while adding modern touches. The beautiful gardens took decades to create and are lovingly attended to. The property has views on the tower \"Torre del Veguer\" and its vineyards, where monks started to plant grapes in the 15th century.
The villa is located on more than 20,000 m² of private grounds (almost five acres), which are divided into two levels. The pool area can be found on the lowest level, surrounded by a large, flat grass field. It features sun beds, umbrellas, a lounge area, and a pond. Also a small patio is located on this level. The villa is located on the level above with its barbeque area and a slowly dripping fountain with greenery and resident fish - a small oasis. From this area, and upon entering the Gazebo house, you can overlook the lawned pool area and vineyards. On the other side of the villa, a lounge area with pool view can be found. The White House is situated separate from the main villa and has a vegetable garden with chickens and several romantic sitting areas. Finally, in the garden, you will find the Cottage surrounded by big aloe vera plants.
