Description

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Torrelles de Foix - Arianella B&B and Apartment

Holiday home with 2 apartments and 6 bedrooms - or whole property

Set amongst the vineyards of the Penedés the our charming country house has been recently transformed into a romantic small hotel/self catering home overlooking the rolling landscape from its position on the hill.

The main house offers accommodation for 12 people in 6 double bedrooms, the 2 apartments, located at the rear of the masia facing South, offer accommodation for 6-8 people. One offers 2 bedrooms, the other one is a studio.

We either rent all 3 units together for up to 22 people, or as well independently. In that case, pool, garden and jacuzzi are shared. Mainly, the main house is a B&B during the summer months.

In the main house you find a cosy courtyard with outside eating, lounge sofas, sun loungers, in the insidea the big living room, bodega and the guest rooms on the first floor. Some of the rooms feature private terraces with wonderful views over the rolling landscape of Penedes.

The apartments are completely independant and enjoy wonderful views from their terraces over the valley of Penedés. Both apartments have big terraces equipped with outside eating, gas driven BBQ and high quality sun loungers.

'Ciruela' features 2 bedrooms, one for the parents and a twin-bedded room for the kids, en suite bathroom, open plan kitchen and a living room with wonderful views. A little extra terrace is ideal for reading or chatting.

The Studio apartment awaits you with an open plan living space ( big sofabed) with a modern kitchen, tastfully separated sleeping space with double bed and big daybed along with a moden, well fittet en suite bathroom. From your private, big terrace you ll enjoy wonderful views over the valley of Penedés.

The traveller can relax in the Mediterranean garden beside the swimming pool, get pampered by the sun during breakfast on the terrace, or snuggle on the sofa near the open fireplace. You can get a fantastic massage in the jacuzzi (with a small extra fee) whilst enjoying the views!

Visitors are made to feel truly welcome and at home here. The English speaking hosts offer advice on daytrips and restaurants. Once relaxed, the traveller can choose between the many activities that the regions offers including visits to the most famous wine cellars of Spain, mountain biking with spectacular views of the Montserrat mountain or a trip to the white beaches of Sitges.

We are looking forward to welcoming you here in sunny Penedes!

Why Rainer and Ariane Paasch chose Alt Penedes

Our house is located beautifully on the top of a hill, enjoying good views to all sides. It s more than 200 years old and invites you to chat, relax and unwind. The atmosphere is very 'family'.

The Penedes region is very interesting and offers many winieries, castles, monasteries and Iberian settlements.

Additionally, all sites like Barcelona, Montserrat , Tarragona, the beaches are only a short drive away. Life is slow and tranquile, but everything you might need is close at hand.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Big, private terraces with gas driven BBQs and with wonderful views

Jacuzzi with fantastic views over the whole valley

Close to the beach, Barcelona, Tarragona

Holiday with a friendly atmosphere

We are at your disposal to help with your planning: visits, wineries, beaches, restaurante ..

Immer wieder Arianella

  • 5 of 5

Es war wieder sehr sehr schön bei Ariane und Rainer. Ein sehr netter Empfang, die traumhafte Umgebung und der einmalige Blick von unserer Terrasse. Die beiden kümmern sich rührend um ihre Gäste, egal um was es geht. Das diesjährige Highlight war der gemeinsame Besuch eines Weinguts mit uns Gästen. Macht weiter so, Eure Gäste werden Euch erhalten bleiben!

Rundum zufrieden

Diese Unterkunft können wir ohne Einschränkung weiterempfehlen. Sehr nette Vermieter, schöne Anlage, Wohnung sauber und gut ausgestattet, Tipps von Vermietern hinsichtlich Ausflugsmöglichkeiten, Restaurants etc... - einfach perfekt. Sicherlich auch ein gutes Ferienziel im Frühjahr und Herbst.

Gänzlich gut

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten das Glück länger bleiben zu können und haben sowohl das neue moderne Appartement als auch ein gemütliches Zimmer im Haupthaus bewohnt und waren rundum zufrieden. Ariane und Rainer kümmerten sich besonders aufmerksam um sämtliche Belange und sorgten für mehrere interessante Abende, bei denen wir nicht nur ausgezeichnet gegessen haben, sondern viele nette Gäste aus unterschiedlichen Ländern kennenlernen konnten. Die Unterkunft liegt ruhig und ist sehr schön in Weinberge eingebettet. Alles wird tip-top gepflegt. Sehr zu empfehlen für Ausflügler und Erholungssuchende. Insbesondere bei längeren Aufenthalten ist ein Auto anzuraten.

Traumhafter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Die Bilder im Internet haben untertrieben: Im Arianella ist es noch viel schöner!! Wir haben mit unseren Töchtern 10 traumhafte Tage bei Rainer und Ariane verbracht. Das Apartment war sehr liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Von der Terrasse hatte man einen tollen Blick über die Weinberge. Den Reiseführer brauchten wir nicht, denn die Gastgeber hatten immer tolle Empfehlungen, die uns begeistert haben. Genauso wie das herrliche Frühstück im Patio mit Feigen aus dem Garten und leckeren Spezialitäten aus der Region. Die Gegend ist so abwechslungsreich und Strände so nah, dass man auch in kurzen Urlauben viel unternehmen kann. Selbst Barcelona ist schnell erreichbar. Dann bleibt auch ganz viel Zeit, um das Arianella so richtig zu genießen!

Owner's Response: Liebe Gäste Vielen, lieben Dank, dass Ihr Euch die Zeit genommen habt über uns zu schreiben! Wir freuen uns, dass es gut angekommen ist, dass wir Zeit für einander hatten, um Euch zu helfen die Schönheit des Penedés zu entdecken oder einfach zu plaudern. Wir freuen uns auf Euch, wenn Ihr eines Tages wiederkommt und würden gerne eine (weitere) Flasche Cava mit Euch trinken! Herzlichst Arianella

Urlaub bei Freunden

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren das erste mal bei Ariane und Rainer zu Besuch. In ihrem wunderschönen Feriendomizil wurden wir sehr herzlich begrüßt und sofort mit allen "überlebensnotwendigen" Informationen versorgt. Wir hatten für unsere Kinder und uns 2 Doppelzimmer gebucht, die mit einem Bad verbunden waren. Die Zimmer waren gemütlich eingerichtet. Für Sauberkeit und Ordnung wurde jeden Tag beanstandungslos gesorgt. Wir hatten das Frühstück mit gebucht, es gab jeden Morgen frisch gebackenes Brot, diverse Säfte, Obstsalat und vieles mehr. Auf Wunsch werden auch Eier in allen Variationen gezaubert. Ein besonderes Highlight war unser gemeinsames Abendessen mit den Gastgebern und allen Gästen, die Lust darauf hatten. In der herrlichen Patio-Atmosphäre entstand schnell ein "Großfamilienfeeling", bei dem sich die Gäste und vor allem die Kinder schnell kennengelernt haben.

Den Reiseführer, den wir in Deutschland gekauft hatten, haben wir nicht gebraucht, weil uns Rainer viele gute Tips geben konnte. Egal, ob es um den richtigen Strand, einen Stadtbummel oder ein nettes Restaurant ging, wir waren nie enttäuscht.

Wir haben diesen Urlaub genossen, vor allem auch die langen Abende, manchmal auch Nächte mit den Gastgebern und Gästen bei super Wein und Cava aus der Hausbar. Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt, wie bei guten Freunden, liebe Ariane, lieber Rainer, liebe Kids, wir kommen wieder!!!!!!!!
