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 garedens.

The villa is available to rent for groups of up to 26 people. 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.


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 25 guests to dine together.

There are 2 spacious and fully equipped kitchens, one of which has a dining table. Serve your home-cooked masterpiece in the dining area, or keep things casual by firing up the barbecue and dining alfresco.

Can Marcer de la Penya is a substantial private residence with a living area of over 750 square metres for guests to enjoy. Even when fully occupied the house is still large enough to allow you as much space and privacy as you like.

There is plenty to keep all guests entertained with a dedicated games room complete with table tennis and pool table, as well as satellite TVs and hundreds of DVDs, books and games available in the lounge areas.


With 750 sqm of interior floor space there is ample room for guests to enjoy their stay in this unique and impressive country house.
