A traditional countryside property in the heart of the Penedès region, one of the most famous wine making regions in Spain.
Staying at a breathtaking country house built in the seventeenth century is unique – almost as unique as diving into a swimming-pool nestled among olive trees and vineyards. Experience both at Mas Palou, your holiday cottage.
We are proud to introduce you to Cal Joaquim and Cal Lluis, two old cottages attached to Mas Palou, the main property. Tenant farmers used to live in these charming cottages, called masoveries in Catalan language. Now, converted into rural housing, they are a perfect choice for those seeking to spend a short –or maybe long – vacation while discovering this incomparable wine and cava region with your family and friends. Surprising to many, this isolated farmhouse is just a stone’s throw not only from Barcelona, but also from Vilanova and Sitges, two beautiful towns on the shores of the Mediterranean. This will give you plenty of options to enjoy the Catalan culture, our sunny weather, and our incomparable beaches.
Learn more about the history of these family cottages in the Penedès region
Located in El Pla del Penedès, Mas Palou is a very well preserved rustic estate. Apart from the main country house, the cellar, and the cottages, there is also a chapel on the premises, dedicated to Sant Jaume de Palou (Saint James of Palou). Built in 1623, it is considered Cultural Asset of Local Interest (BCIL in Catalan language)
In 1996, Santi and Adelina, the owners of the estate, restored one of the cottages, Cal Joaquim. The aim was to preserve this beautiful place so that others could enjoy it.
Some years after refurbishing Cal Joaquim the owners noticed that the clients really liked Mas Palou, which then only consisted of Cal Joaquim. Many became repeat clients and recommended Mas Palou to their friends, so they did the same operation with Cal Lluís, a second cottage. Nowadays both cottages offer a comfortable and enticing stay, many leisure opportunities and, above all, the charm of simplicity and authenticity.
We look forward to your arrival!
