In the former separated vine-growing estate with fantastic panoramic view of the natural reserve Garraf and the sea in the distance, our pretty, comfortable holiday apartment is located with large living & dining room, open kitchen, richly equipped, double bedroom & bathroom. All rooms have large southern windows with access to the nice, large terrace with terrace furniture and divan beds above the vineyards. The apartment has satellite TV, hairdryer, iron & central heating, washing machine, ironing board, games are also available. It offers room for 2 adults (children for security reasons only from the age of 12).
We truly loved our stay in Can Maginet - it is so beautiful there, and we loved being in the countryside and near the small villages. We greatly enjoyed hiking and our views of the vineyards and sculptures. Our hosts were wonderful, and attentive to all of our needs. Be prepared that it can be over an hour's drive at times from Barcelona back to this area. It wasn't a problem for us, though, and we got to enjoy both the city and the rural areas.
We are pleased to say that Can Maginet turned out to be one of the best vacation rentals we have ever had. The property was spotless, well equipped, and nicely furnished. Everything was first class. The frosting on the cake was the stunning sculpture installations (our host is a sculptor), the amazing views, the broad sunny terrace over the vineyards, and our friendly and helpful hosts. Monika and Enrique are the best - we were made to feel welcome and comfortable in the most gracious manner. This experience deserves a ten star rating, so I am disappointed to only leave five! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality.

We usually make a trip with flights, car hire and accommodation for 2 to 3 times per year.
Catalonia with Penedes and Barcelona was a very positive experience.
Once we came to Can Maginet on winding roads, we found the ideal accommodation.
We've walked up the mountains on the black trail, and found very beautiful views. Castellers in Vila Franca on November 1, was a great surprise.
A visit to Simon Coll and Freixenet in Sant Sadurni gave us a taste of both chocolate and cava.
For Barcelona are the easiest way by train from Vila Franca or Sant Sadurni, well ahead Barcelona it is easy to take the Metro and bus. Best ticket option is 10-trips.

This apartment is in a wonderful location with spectacular views. It is ideal for anyone who wants to get away from the hustle & bustle of day to day life and simply relax. The apartment has a well equiped kitchen with everthing that you need and is warm and cosy. The real selling point though is the silence, with no other buildings in sight the only sound is birdsong. There are miles of marked walking trails from the front door to explore. You are within an easy drive to the coast at Sitges and only 40 minutes from Barcelona airport which makes this an ideal place for a long weekend.
After a week in Venice, the apartment at Can Maginet seemed like heaven on earth to us! It's exactly as described in the listing - spacious & stylish, located in a serene setting with stunning views over a vineyard in the immediate foreground and green hills/mountains beyond. There are floor-to-ceiling windows & patio doors that allow you to enjoy the view in any season - everything about the property feels completely private and special.
It's the perfect base for exploring the Penedes region, and there are lots of brochures, maps and guidebooks to help plan daytrips in any direction.
The closest town (Avinyonet) has an excellent bakery, and it's only a 15 minute drive to Vilafranca del Penedes for most other needs. We especially enjoyed the Vinseum (wine museum) in Vilafranca and our tour at the Torres winery just outside town.
The train ride from Vilafranca to Barcelona takes about 1 hour and leaves you right in the heart of most tourist attractions - very reasonable fares and convenient schedule for everything except late-night performances.
The owners were not in residence during our time at the property, but they were readily available by email and phone for any questions that arose, including pre-trip planning and advice. Plus their assistant/manager was on site and always willing to help.
After a day in the city or touring the countryside, it was always a treat to return to the peace & quiet of our apt. at Can Maginet. We felt welcome & comfortable from the very beginning of our stay, and our time there was entirely too short. We definitely hope to return in the not-too-distant future!
A well equipped private apartment suitable for a couple who want to get away from it all and relax. The private balcony has wonderful views of the catalan countryside and it's also a great location to get to Monserrat and some of the historic buildings that are in the area.
