A beautiful 17th century Catalan country house that once produced 140,000 litres of wine a year and now restored to its charming original character.

Can Marcer de la Penya is a fabulous Catalan country house (Masia) that was originally built in 1605.

It was bought by the current owners in 2001 who then set about renovating and modernised the house to a high standard while still keeping many of the original features and overall character of the property.

Set back from the coast, the house nestles in a peaceful and elevated location amongst the vineyards and hills of the Garraf and yet is only a 30 minute drive from Barcelona airport and just 10 minutes from all the amenities and attractions of the lively beach resort of Sitges.

The rooms at Can Marcer are large, many with their original wooden beams and floor tiles. Outside is a large and sunny terrace that runs the length of the villa with wooden garden tables and chairs for outside dining, served by a large BBQ area.

There is also a lawned pavillion garden, which is perfect for wedding ceremonies or a great space with marvellous views for outside dining for special celebrations. The private swimming pool can be heated if desired and has wide steps and is fenced making it ideal for children.

Guests will enjoy the stunning panoramic views of the Garraf Natural Park and the Mediterranean sea from many parts of the house and gardens.

The villa is available to rent for groups of up to 26 guests. Outside of June, July and August we also rent the villa to smaller groups. The house is an ideal venue for small outdoor weddings and events with space for up to 60 guests.

INTERIOR SPACE

The house has been thoughtfully and sympathetically designed to provide modern and hi-tec comforts, while the preservation of many original rustic features like wooden ceiling beams, exposed stone walls, tile flooring and large fireplaces ensures that the historical essence and charm of this magnificent property have been retained.

The masia has been cleverly decorated with a combination of both modern and antique furnishings along with interesting artwork. There are 2 large and comfortably furnished living rooms complete with flat-screen TVs with international satellite stations as well as 2 fine dining rooms one of which features a huge dining table with space for up to 26 guests to dine together.

Guest Reviews

  • 'We Had a wonderful time at your House' - Yaron, Israel

    Happy new year! We Had a wonderful time at your House. My family just loved it! We Had lovely, lunches outside with the stunning views and nice walks! Your House is amazing as it is nice and cosy for 4 as for 16 people or more, which is quite exeptional. And more amazing is that even with 8 kids we had a quite stay in the living as the kids were playing in the ping pong room or playing a game in the up stairs living. Just great!!!!we would love to come again!

  • 'It was a great vacation in one of the best houses we’ve ever had' - Maria, Netherlands

    This is our final evening at the house, and the whole family would like to tell you how much we have enjoyed our time here. The house is just great, and is maintained at the highest level. It has all the amenities we could ask for – nothing is missing, and more. We enjoyed the kitchen, the living rooms, the pool (yes, we were sitting by the pool on Friday, and some of us actually spent time in the warm water), the library, the videos, and more. I assume we should thank you for the great weather too – everyday it got better and better. In short, it was a great vacation in one of the best houses we’ve ever had.

  • 'Thank you very much for your hospitality' - Einar, Iceland

    After a lovely week at Can marce I wanted to write to you. We arrived at your lovely home which was so nicely decorated it was a pleasure to sit inside, even when the weather was (initially) bad. We even had hot water bottles on the beds! It is a very child friendly house which made the kids feel very welcome. The water of the pool was clean and nicely warmed up. We treated your beautiful belongings with care and left the house neatly. Unfortunately we broke one wineglass. We very much enjoined your house and its surroundings and hope to visit again in the future. Thank you very much for your hospitality and good care.

  • 'We all enjoyed the stay at Can Marcer very much' - Marc, Switzerland

    We all enjoyed the stay at Can Marcer very much, our kids talk about the best summer vacation ever. The youngsters loved the swimmingpool, so did we.

  • 'We had a wonderful time' - John, U.K.

    Yes we all had a wonderful time at the house, the villages surrounding the place and the beaches down in Villanova! We had good dinners outside on the terrasse and used the BBQ well and even prepared an amazing Paella!

  • 'I loved the place' - Ingrid U.S.A

    I loved the place. As I said in the first place we wanted somewhere where friends could visit, not least to see one of our daughters who was over from Australia for the first time in 18 months. It was perfect and allowed lots of people to come and go for short times. lovely meals overlooking the valley. Enjoyed the cycling in the garraf but barely scratched the surface of what was available so may need to come back!! Now struggling with hundreds of emails from the past two weeks so yours is a welcome distraction. Many thanks for letting us have the place.

  • 'The house is amazing' - N.Prieto, July 2017

    Thanks, it was a wonderful stay and the house is amazing. The house was so comfortable and thoughtfully stocked. Thanks for the welcome basket! We really appreciate the convenience of things like beach towels, pool toys and hair dryers. Coming from the US with our small suitcases those are the items we can’t bring and it really made our stay nice. A couple (very minor) suggestions next time you shop for the house: a larger drip coffee maker and a really large salad bowl. (Of course we’re Americans and we like everything big!).

  • 'Beautiful Country House near Garraf Park & Sitges' - Paul, June 2018

    We stayed at Can Marcer de la Penya for a week in May/June 2018. Our group of 19 consisted of 4 family generations to celebrate an 80th Birthday. The Masia is maintained to a high standard and retains much of its original character. Our family daytime activities on site were generally centred around the pool area, where we were able to spread out and enjoy the luxurious surroundings, sunshine and of course cool off in the lovely pool. In the evenings we tended to gathered for family meals on the upper dining terrace from which the views were fantastic. The owner and housekeeper couldn’t have been more helpful and were available to assist and advise during our stay. We chose not to hire a car on this occasion and found that Taxis into Sitges were generally easy to organise from the property. Similarly, walks in to the local town of Sant Pere de Ribes were possible from the Masia and from here you can pick up transport into Sitges, Barcelona and further afield.

  • 'History, luxury… amazing experience' - Albert, September 2018

    My family and I stayed at the villa for a week. The villa is really pretty and big, located in the middle of a vineyard. It is not super easy to access but that makes it even more charming, as you really feel secluded and in touch with nature. All rooms were beautiful, some bigger and some more cosy, but all charming. It was great to have several communal areas where the family could gather or separate. The one thing I would suggest would be to install aircon in all room, since only three have aircon at the moment and it can get pretty hot during the day. The house manager, Jana, was extremely helpful and friendly. We really appreciated having her around as she was always willing to help and guide us. We can’t wait to be back and we highly recommend this place if you want to spend some time with a big group of friends or family.
