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.

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.
