Perks for the Parents

This beautiful Modernist villa with a pool and large gardens is set in the hills just north of Barcelona with toys, books and games, and a beach 20 minutes’ drive away. Perfect for families travelling together or those after lots of space, the villa offers elegant living spaces with high ceilings, a full kitchen with family-sized dining areas and high chair if required, and spacious bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own dressing room. Parents will love the various indoor and outdoor areas to relax with an evening drink. The village has 5 restaurants from the Michelin Guide plus the beautiful and restorative Roman spa 'Aire Vallromanes.' A 5-minute drive takes you to the stunning Club de Golf Vallromanes. Barcelona is only 25 minutes away - easy for day trips and dinner in the evening.

Why Kids Love it

The villa is stacked with toys. Kids will love the space and freedom to let their imaginations run riot - playing in the teepee in the garden, dressing up in the tower and, of course, splashing in the pool. Two long eared rabbits are kept on the property and looked after by the housekeeper - kids can feed them. Children’s bedrooms can be set up with extra pull-out beds or a crib on request, so can be configured to suit your set up. The village is an easy 10-minute walk away with playgrounds and cafés to enjoy. The nearest beach is at El Masnou, a 15-20 drive away; Isla Fantasia waterpark is also 20 minutes away. The residence has a family bathroom complete with a bath for the children; the other 2 bathrooms have showers. The property has plenty of space and being set in the mountains, is great for families, allowing you to escape the heat and noise of the city and be in your own exclusive oasis.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. There is ample parking space on the property and on the street outside. The pool has a safety net. There are 2 sets of stairs at each end of the house with doors at the top of each but no stair gate. Please also note that there is a ruin on the property that is fenced off but adults should supervise children so that no-one enters. There are also steps in the garden and a balcony off one bedroom where children may need close supervision. Entrance and use of the 18-hole Vallromanes Golf Club and the Aire Vallromanes Spa can be arranged; clients are responsible for the associated costs. The rental rate includes a live-in housekeeper who is there to help keep the house in order during guest stay. She is also available for babysitting (at an extra charge) and organising simple meals - perfect for parents who need an extra hand with the children. All rooms have fans.

About the Location

The residence is in Vallromanes, an exclusive and charming village around 25 minutes north of Barcelona, in the foothills of the mountains overlooking the Maresme coast. It is a quiet village with 2 small grocery stores, a pharmacy, bakery, post office, cafés and 5 excellent restaurants. Car rental is essential and will enable guests to easily reach the nearby beaches, waterparks, hills for walks, La Roca Village outlet shopping, and of course Barcelona. Barcelona airport is 40 minutes away and Girona airport is 45 minutes away.

Accommodation Details

This villa has 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all located upstairs. All 3 main bedrooms have either a king or queensized bed. The 3 children's rooms have a single bed (1 room has a toddler bed) and a pull-out bed can be added on request to sleep 2 per room. A wooden cot is also available. Bathrooms include tubs and showers. Downstairs, here is a large open-plan family kitchen, a separate dining room, TV room, lounge and office. Adjacent to the kitchen is a small out house with a washing machine and space for drying. The dining room porch leads into a mediterranean oasis where guests can enjoy dining under the palm trees. The large garden has its own vegetable garden and Roman-style pool complete with hammocks, lounge furniture and a bar area.

Style Notes

Modern classic. This 1913 Villa is an architectural delight. Built as part of the modernist movement, it is bright and light and set in beautiful grounds with gravelled terraces, pathways bursting with lavender bushes and palm-fringed lawns to run and play in. Inside, rooms are elegant and sophisticated with high ceilings and colonial-inspired furniture, and yet this family home offers an comfortable and relaxed living space. The decor maintains links to the property’s Art Deco roots but also encompasses a colonial glamour inspired by the owners travels to South America and Africa. We love the safari chairs, the fabulous windows and the wonderful provision for children.

We are a mixed Irish, Venezuelan, English family and there are 6 of us! Our four children range from ages 3 to 10 and we all adore living in Vallromanes. With the beach, golf club and hills so close we have found our home to be a family paradise plus our favourite city in the whole world is just a stones throw away.

Vallromanes, Barcelona

A retreat in the mountains

Just under half an hour from Barcelona, Vallromanes is a charming village and offers respite from the heat and action of the busy city. It’s a great base from which to explore Catalonia - the area’s golden beaches are 15-20 minutes’ drive away, while Barcelona and Girona are close by for a day trip or night out. The village itself has several well regarded restaurants, all amenities, a playground and a Roman spa.
