Fuimos por motivos de trabajo y pasamos una semana maravillosa y tranquila. El paisaje es maravilloso, relajante y una fuente de inspiración. Pudimos trabajar muy bien en los diferentes lugares de la casa y descansar después de la jornada laboral. La masia es muy acogedora, amplia, limpia  y está bien ubicada, a solo 30 minutos de Barcelona y a unos minutos de Sitges. La decoración y el mobiliario son encantadores y de buen gusto. Tiene todos los servicios necesarios: lavadora, secadores de cabello en cada baño, toallas y un canasto de bienvenida. Es un lugar ideal para pasar unas lindas vacaciones, celebrar en familia e incluso trabajar con el equipo de trabajo.

La comunicación con los dueños fue excelente, respondieron rápidamente a todas nuestras preguntas, muy atentos y flexibles, siempre estuvieron atentos a cualquier detalle y fueron muy serviciales.

Gracias a todos por hacer de nuestra estadía una semana inolvidable!

In March, my co-workers and I were in Can Marcer de la Penya for conference reasons. We were 19 people, but the villa could easily accommodate more people. The hosts are very friendly and very helpful. Even in advance, the communication was great and they answered questions for all questions. On site, the owners were always available and were immediately on hand when needed. The villa was very clean and super modern equipped. You have everything you need and more. We felt very comfortable. There was nothing missing, all kitchen utensils and appliances are available, even spices were available in a large selection. We enjoyed the area, the pool and the great view into the distance. The villa is very quiet and offers plenty of opportunities to pass the time. Anyway, we were thrilled and would come back anytime.

Am liebsten nur noch dort!

im März waren meine Arbeitskollegen und ich aus Tagungsgründen in der Villa Can Marcer de la Penya. Wir waren 19 Personen, doch die Villa hätte noch mehr Personen locker beherbergen können. Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit. Schon vorab war die Kommunikation super und sie standen für alle Fragen Rede und Antwort. Die Villa war sehr sehr sauber und super modern ausgestattet. Man hat alles was man braucht und noch mehr. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Es hat an nichts gefehlt, sämtliche Küchenutensilien und Geräte sind vorhanden, selbst Gewürze standen in großer Auswahl zur Verfügung. Wir haben die Anlage, den Pool und den tollen Ausblick in die weite Ferne sehr genossen. Die Villa ist sehr ruhig gelegen und bietet eine Menge Möglichkeiten sich die Zeit zu vertreiben. Wir waren jedenfalls begeistert und würden jederzeit wieder kommen.

The accommodation is just amazing! the house is warm and peaceful. We spent a week there for a company event. and we all enjoyed the place.

Ginette & Peter are so kind and helpful.

I will definitely recommend this place.

Thanks again!

Beautiful villa with a very attentive owner. Great for large teams due to the many bedrooms, office, wifi and outdoor sitting/dining area.

Itamar, London

The house had wonderful rooms with plenty of bathrooms and a kitchen that made it possible to cook for 25 people every day. The location was perfect, close enough for us to get there easily but far enough away from the city so people didn’t wander off too easily. The hosts (both Ginette and Peter) were very friendly and helped us out with any question / comment / quest we had for them. It can definitely be recommended for any company trip with 20-30 people!
