Exceptional Architect Design House

Villa - Entire home/apt · Av Pedro Planas, St Cugat del Vallès, Catalonia 08198, Spain

The Space

Newly redesigned by talented Catalan Architect this late 19th century villa has been extended with definitely modern wooden structure, mixing the interior and exterior spaces in an unusual way.
Nested in the middle of the forest of Collserola Park, the house is only 15 minutes from Barcelona's city center.
Outside, the large garden lets you enjoy the sun or find rest below the shade of a tree, while listening to the soothing music of the water cascading off of the infinity swimming pool. In the further area of the garden, the children may be enjoying their time more actively on the trampoline or by the basketball hoop.
Inside the house offers very large and comfortable living spaces with all modern amenities: WiFi high-speed Internet,huge open designer kitchen, living room with a fire place and open views to the forest and the garden.
On the upper floor are the bedrooms: 1 very large master suite with own shower room walk-in dressing, toilet, and a study with two comfortable desks.
On the same floor in the old villa are 3 bedrooms with twin beds that can be made into double bed, desk and large closet. A full bathroom with bath-tub ad shower. and a play area.
Around and about:
The property is located in a secluded area adjacent to the Collserola park. It is a great place to start a hike or mountain biking expedition through the park. It is also very easy and quick to get to the center of Barcelona, to the beach, or to visit the Catalan back-country and its numerous medieval villages.
You can choose to drive to town or take the train; both solution are equally quick (15 to 35 minutes to get to plaça Catalunya). 10 minutes from the house on the way to town, is the Tibidabo attraction park. Many beaches can be reached in less than an hour (20 minutes Barcelona, 25 minutes Casteldefels, 40 minutes Sitges...) The house is situated less than 5 kilometer from a renowned golf course, several exclusive tennis club, and various horse riding school, which will offer you a great new way to discover this unique wonderful park that borders Spain's second largest city.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had the most fabulous time at this amazing house in La Floresta in the mountains. We are one family with two children and the house had so many exciting spaces for them to play in. The pool and garden was fantastic, a trampoline which Luke and Sophia both used . You will need to either hire a car but of course if you like walking then the views and walks are fantastic. 20 mins from station and then 10 mins into Barcelona City centre, beautiful walk to station. Local shops are really friendly and bars are very friendly. The kitchen is extremely well equipped for family suppers and lunches and the barbecue is also easy to use. We had the most wonderful time here at the house and will consider booking again next year as we always go to Barcelona every year.
    Thank you to Matthieu and Sandra for letting us stay in their Beautiful Casa...
    Much love
    Debbi, Mark, Sophia and Luke.

  • Great house! We were two families with kids who enjoyed the beatiful swimming pool and the great kitchen with excellent equipment. If you are fond of cooking, and lazy days by the pool, this house is great. Good area for bicycling and running as well. Make sure you get coordinates for your GPS because most systems don't recognize the address.

  • Everything was excatly as descriped and those inviting pictures reflects the reality. We enjoyed to stay in this house and relaxed
    before or after visiting barcelona. In particular the gaden and the
    refreshing pool plays an important role in addition to the fully equipped and very clean house. Matthieu and Sandra were very friendly, helpfull and uncomplicated.
    In summary we would highly recommend this house.

  • The house was just as we expected from the description and photographs with a lovely garden and pool with views across the hills. The master bedroom was spacious and also had the views, with floor to ceiling windows. It was the perfect place to relax and recover from our days spent strolling the streets of Barcelona.

    Matthieu and his family were really friendly and helpful, especially as we arrived a little early before they had prepared everything. They gave us a tour of the house, and Matthieu drove me and my partner into Sant Cugat to show us how to get there.

    The house is a good 30 minute walk from the nearest train station (there are buses, but we didn't use them). We all like walking, so this wasn't an issue for us, but if you would prefer not to walk, I would suggest hiring a car rather than relying on public transport.

    All in all, a brilliant holiday house. It all went by in a flash. I'm writing this from my desk, wishing we were still there. I would highly recommend this house.

  • Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans un cadre qui correspondait parfaitement à la description du site.

    La maison est très spacieuse, bien agencée et fonctionnelle. La proximité de Barcelone permet de s'y rendre rapidement en voiture pour toutes activités.

    Je recommande cette maison les yeux fermés

  • Séjour à Sant Cugat del Vallès famille française avec 2 enfants.
    La description de la maison et de l'environnement faite sur le site correspond parfaitement à la réalité.
    Maison superbe, spacieuse et fonctionnelle idéalement située pour un séjour sur Barcelone (visites, bain de foule barcelonais pour finir dans les collines paisiblement au bord de la piscine avec une vue  panoramique : le bonheur ...)
    Et merci à Matthieu et Sandra pour les échanges et leur sérieux!
    Bref une adresse à recommander vivement!
