The space

Sleeps 11 (5 bedrooms/3 bathrooms) - Masia d´en Giralt is a beautiful and impressive 18th century Catalan country house, listed by the Catalan Government as a building of architectural and cultural interest. The original farm was established in 1722 by Mr.Giralt, a landowner from the south of France, who recognised the potential to grow grapes and produce wine along the Catalan coast, taking advantage of the strong winemaking tradition established in the area since the time of the Phoenicians.

Masia d´en Giralt has been inhabited continuously since that time, with the latest restoration completed in 2006. Mas d'en Giralt has original outbuildings and an ancient chapel dedicated to various saints, complete with frescoes dating from 1828 showing images of St. James, St. Thomas Aquinas, La Virgen del Carmen, the Virgin of Montserrat, Santa Barbara, the Immaculate Virgin and San Antonio de Padua.

The gardens have been stocked with native plants, many of them medicinal.

Mas d'en Giralt nestles in a truly privileged position amongst vineyards just north of Sant Pere de Ribes and only 10kms from the beaches of Sitges. The house enjoys a beautiful rural setting in the Garraf Natural Park, surrounded by pine forests and vineyards growing the white Mediterranean native strains used in the production of the renowned Penedès red and white wines.

Despite its secluded rural location, Mas d'en Giralt is only a 10-minute drive to the highly popular holiday resort of Sitges, 30 minutes to Barcelona Airport, 40 minutes to the city of Barcelona and a few minutes to two major motorways.
The Masía offers 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There are two large living rooms with traditional high beamed ceilings, one with the original drawings on the wall and a large woodburner, the other opening out onto the lovely gardens at the back of the house and featuring a rustic fireplace for those cooler out of season evenings.

There are 5 double bedrooms in total, all very large and bright and with character windows and high ceilings.

The Master suite is very spacious with high beamed ceilings and a large bathroom. The bathroom has two doors one from the Master suite and the other leading to a hallway where two other bedrooms are situated. Bedroom 4 and 5 are connecting.

The beautiful gardens are well stocked with natural Mediterranean plants and offer sunbathing areas, cool shady spots and secluded seating and dining areas. The huge network of hiking trails on the Garraf Natural Park can be accessed directly from the garden.

Bedrooms:
Bedroom 1 – Large double bed with built in wardrobes and sofa area
Bedroom 2 – Double Bed
Bedroom 3 – Large Master Suite
Bedroom 4 – Double Bed with Desk and Chair
Bedroom 5 – Double bed and Single bed with desk area overlooking the back garden

Bathrooms:

Other Information:
The Masia is located in a little hamlet with two other farmhouses. One of which has horses that are available to ride at a small charge.

Public Gym and Swimming-pool in "ESPAI BLAU" Sant Pere de Ribes, 5 minutes from the house. Great fun for children with monitored activities.

A truly special experience from arrival to leaving (and beyond). The place is magical both inside and out. Plenty of space to talk relax cook and fill up. It has a really good energy to it and we will return. Thank you Jose

We have stayed at Jose's place for 5 days and have had a amazing time. Jose is an amazing host (from cooking for us the best paella to helping us organizing for us activities). The house is big, and very peaceful, great to make a break from the busy city. It is has a great location: close to sitges and the beach, close from Barcelona, close to the airport. If you are looking for a place to resource yoursrself, that s it ! Thanks Jose!

Beautiful, charming masia in a quiet location. We really enjoyed Jose Enrique's hospitality and his tour of the place with explanations on the history of the place.

We had the most amazing time with Jose, he went way beyond expectations in being the most amazing host. So much so that when we left a bag behind he drove to the airport to deliver it. The pictures do not do this amazing house justice, because we were blown away with the beauty of the house. It has been restored and decorated beautifully. We really hope one day we can come back here

This booking was a positive surprise. We thought that we'd be far from Barcelona, but found out that we can reach town centre in less than 30 mins. The house is adorable, well recovered, decorated with taste. It's an excellent place to return to after a busy day in the city. It's also close to Barcelona's airport. José is an excellent host, making himself available from the first contact and providing with more that what it is normally required in any airbnb experience. Highly recommended. Probably my best airbnb experience so far.

The house is beautiful and has plenty of room for families or big groups. There were 9 of us for our trip 5 kids and 4 adults. We never once felt confined. The kids loved the different rooms, and the yard with plenty of space to move around. Somethings to note this house is old with a lot of history, which can cause a bit a bit of a challenge if you are use to modern conveniences. For example using propane for the stoves and for the hot water for the showers. You get a pretty good breeze in the house with windows open, but despite all the curtains we had bugs mostly flies. Also, we had a hard time keeping things clean, because as people walked on the second floor, dirt would fall to the first. Don't let this deter you, because we still greatly enjoyed our adventure. It is very close to the beaches or Sitges, and we used Sitges to take the train to Barcelona making the location great. We were close to what we wanted to see, but out in the country submerged in the culture. Jose was an amazing host. First he was very accommodating meeting us at our arrival time, which was a bit up in the air depending on traffic. We arrived on a Sunday and he had some drinks, bread, fruits and vegetables waiting on us until we had time to make it to a store. We had free range of all foods in the kitchen, along with all spices and things like that you may need. When a problem arose he responded to our texts very quickly solving the issue. He also checked in our to make sure we had what we needed, and gave us recommendations for things locally.

Hello all of you and welcome to a new experience. I acquired MAS D´EN GIRALT some years ago, completely astonished by the extraordinary landscape and strategic location. The area, surrounded by mediterranean pine forests, ancient vineyards and full of history makes me remember…
