Description

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Sant Pere de Ribes - MASIA MAS D'EN GIRALT 1722

5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 11

MAS d'en GIRALT is a typical CATALAN farm house, called "Masía" listed and protected by the Catalan Government as building of Cultural Heritage and Architectural Interest. The first construction was done on 1722 by a French wine producer.

The house is located in the middle of the National Park of Garraf, 30 minutes from BCN International Airport, 10 minutes from SITGES, 40 Minutes from PORT AVENTURA. Easy access by train to Barcelona town center by train 35 minutes.

The area is full of small cellars were you can find the traditional CAVA produced using the old "mèthode Champenoise" used to make the area famous sparkling wines as CODORNIU or FREIXENET. Also restaurants and nightlife in SITGES and BARCELONA can make your holidays unforgettable. During the day you can enjoy the nice and well equipped beaches and the sea of Sitges, or explore the small wild "calas" small white sand beaches in the surroundings.

Mas d'en Giralt has been restored following the most precise old construction technics of the area used in 1700 and also has combined the last and newest technologies, energy saving devises and sustainable materials for the full reconstruction. The house is equipped with Solar Energy Power Plant which supplies electricity for dish washer, washing machine, fridges, water pumps, central heating, microwaves, LedTV , WIFI etc. Also water used in the house comes from rain water storage in the old ceramic wine tanks. It is a good experience for understanding how solar energy works, and verify that energy sustainability is possible.

About José Enrique Alarcón

Hi!!, My name is José, I started the reconstruction of the the farm house in 2006, and completed one year after. I have been living in Africa for the last 6 years, traveling quite often to Europe, and enjoying local wines and cellars when at home. I would like to shear all these achievements with you at Masia Mas d'en Giralt, founded in 1722.

What a trip !

  • 4 of 5

The place is amazing and really authentic. No building there but forests and hills all around.

When you enter in the house, you travel in another age...centuries earlier. But don't worry, all modern facilities are available in the house !

what a guess !

José was a wonderful host. He was an excellent guide providing useful information on things to do in the area and solved all the minor problems we had.

and so many "souvenirs" !

Our children came back with many happy memories :)

Muchas gracias José !!!

Guillaume.

De merveilleuses vacances en famille...

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 merveilleuses semaines en famille (4 adultes et 6 enfants de 5 à 18 ans) dans la très belle maison de José.

Située dans le parc naturel Del Garraf, cette maison rustique est un point de départ idéal de ballades à pied et en VTT.

La jolie et animée station balnéaire de Sitges est à 15 minutes de route, ses plages de sables fins sont très propres et très bien équipées.

Et Barcelone est à 30 à 40 minutes de voiture seulement.

Nous avons fait de nombreuses excursions à la journée à Barcelone, tout en appréciant de retrouver le soir venu, calme et verdure dans la maison.

José a été un hôte accueillant, sympathique et très disponible, et nous le remercions une fois de plus pour ces 2 semaines passées dans sa belle maison. Encore merci !

Mas d'en Giralt, has been restored following ecologic criterias, and also following the original ancient construction technics. I have combined the most modern sustainable technologies making it self sustainable. Solar Panels for Photovoltaic energy fully provides the 5Kw/h need for the normal functioning of the house, including dishwasher, washing machine, Led TV, water pumps, fridges, microwave, etc. Also, rain water is accumulated in the original ceramic wine tanks (where the first fermentation of wine was done in the past), and gives full water supply for all the year -very exceptionally we have to order extra water supply tanks for the house use -. Therefore, these facts may offer you a new eco-responsible experience while you enjoy your holidays.

The house is ideal for two families, there are 2 bedrooms x 2 people each in double bed connected to a central bathroom. On the top floor there are 3 bedrooms two of them double bed 2 people each and on bedroom for 3 people 2 in double bed 1 in single. These 3 rooms share a big main bathroom.

MAS d'en GIRALT is very conveniently placed in the middle of a small valley, surrounded by vineyards within GARRAF NATURAL PARK. there is a private forest path of 800m from the main road to the house entrance. Two more houses are part of the farm, where two families live permanently, offering horse rides and fresh eggs and home wine to my guests. The village of SANT PERE DE RIBES is 5 minutes from the house, with facilities as the regional Hospital, Pharmacy, supermarkets, nice restaurants, gym, public swimming pool -recommended for children- outstanding bakery and pastry shop and cellars. Also SITGES is teen minutes by car from the house, Sitges beach is one of the most fashionable places during summer due to is cultural events, concerts, night live and outstanding restaurants. Also you can find there an excellent GOLF CLUB TERRAMAR. From Sitges you can easily access BARCELONA by 35 minutes ride direct train.
