Sleeps 9 (4 bedrooms/3 bathrooms) - Villa El Mirador offers a completely different holiday experience to most of the properties in our portfolio. This is an ultra modern designer villa which enjoys a beautiful hilltop position in Canyelles and offers truly spectacular views of the Mediterranean sea and mountains from every room in the house. The views are so extensive that on a very clear day it is sometimes possible to see the island of Majorca in one direction and the snow capped Pyrenees mountains in the other.
This is a holiday home that has been meticulously built to the highest specifications and thoughtfully designed to take full advantage of its privileged position. It offers an isolated location that is ideal for a highly relaxing family holiday and yet it's still very close to local amenities and world class holiday resorts.
Villa El Mirador is just a 5 minute drive from the lovely little village of Canyelles with its wide range of amenities, including a Sunday market, shops, banks, cafes, restauarants, a park and horse riding stables. There are also a number of wonderful walks and family cycle paths that start from the villa and take you to the market town and cava producing centre of Vilafranca del Penedes, as well as the historic castle of Olerdola. There are 2 adult bikes and 2 child sized bikes available at the villa exclusively for guest use.
The villa is only a 20-minute drive from the bustling resorts of Sitges and Vilanova with their bars, cafes, boutiques, restaurants and fantastic sandy beaches, and around 40 minutes from world-famous Barcelona.
The extensive use of glass in the design means that every room in Villa El Mirador is full of light and enjoys extensive panoramas. The decor is both modern and stylish, and is further enhanced by a number of hand crafted features. The villa is arranged over 2 floors as follows;
Entry to Villa El Mirador is via the first floor.

The rest of the garden that surrounds the villa has been left in its attractive natural state consisting of limestone rocks interspersed with aromatic Mediterranean herbs such as rosemary, lavander, thyme as well as the celebrated native Margallo palm.

We loved the villa and the area many thanks ! Maybe if I can have two minor improvement suggestions:
- it would be nice to have darker curtains in the bedrooms because the current ones allow a lot of light to come into the rooms and we were all woken up very early because of that.
- there is no proper place for garbage in the kitchen
Apart from that (and this is really minor) we really enjoyed our stay !
