Description

5 MAJOR PLUS POINTS

  1. There is nothing better than a comfortable place where you feel pampered
  2. The house is not connected to the energy supply network. They use their own solar and photovoltaic panels and biomass from the pruning of the vines of their own vineyards.
  3. The holiday home is located in the Penedès, a region full of places to discover, and not only for wine lovers.
  4. For businesses, it’s supplied with meeting rooms and a lounge with comfortable sofas and pool table for after work talks.
  5. The attention to detail of the Solé-Bundó family is clearly visible in the decorations of the rooms, bathrooms, etc. and the many services offered to visitors

THE SETTING

The city La Bisbal del Penedès is located in Penedès, which is considered by many best white wine region of Spain, and the chief producer of Spain’s version of champaign, called “cava”. This is where the famous Freixenet and Codorniu come from! The landscape reminds me of the Italian region of Tuscany, because of its smooth hills and its endless fields. In addition to the many vineyards, there are also countless olive groves, almonds, hazelnuts, etc. The city is only 10 kilometers from the Costa Dorada (Costa Daurada in Catalan) which is characterized by its long beaches of fine golden sand. It is also about 60 km south of Barcelona and 30 km North of Tarragona .

 

THE COTTAGE

The MAS LLAGOSTERA is a peasant house, originally from the seventeenth century, it is isolated in the midst of their own fields. In 2010, it was completely renovated and modernized. The grounds are made up of 25 hectares of land cultivated with grape vines for the production of wines and cavas, 6 hectares dedicated to the cultivation of olives for oil production with its own labeling, and 100 hectares of forest which is used for biomass for the property’s own use.

The house has

  • 6 bedrooms, almost all of them suites with bathrooms,
  • several living rooms,
  • playgrounds,
  • swimming pool,
  • sauna,
  • jacuzzi,
  • (uncovered) parking,
  • and conference rooms.

All facilities have been renovated to maintain the charm of the original architecture, without sacrificing comfort. Each room has nice unique details and charming historic features.

Up to 19 people can be accommodated here, making this rural house ideal for group travel, business conferences, planning equipment, technical training, etc.

 

SUSTAINABILITY IN MIND

MAS LLAGOSTERA has never been connected to a public electric grid. It runs on fully self-sufficient sources of renewable energy.

  • The owners have never lost their connection to the land and the farm operation is still running. The holiday house offers the chance to enjoy an environment that is strongly linked to the field and its harvest.
  • Fields are treated with traditional methods in a sustainable way, without pesticides or other chemicals.
  • Photovoltaic and thermal plates generate enough electricity and hot water for the house as well as the pool, spa and sauna.
  • The heating is provided by a biomass boiler, nourished by the forest, vineyards, and olive bones.
  • Its thick walls (one meter thick) isolate the house enough to be able to do without air conditioning in the summer.
  • Accommodation with the European Ecolabel

The country house is certified by ISO and has the stamp of the Ecolabel on ecotourism.
It is also committed to the criteria of the German label for hotel and catering services, Blaue Schwalbe which is well known and valued in the German speaking countries.
