Via a quiet road surrounded by vineyards, you arrive at Mas els Igols, a traditional Catalonian farmhouse, transformed into a beautiful retreat for 15 people. The Dutch owners Iris and Arnout have lost their hearts to this beautiful region in Spain and previously co-founded an art academy in Barcelona. This quieter situated masia breathes warmth and understated luxury, inviting you sit back and enjoy the beauty that this rural setting has to offer.
Upon entering the house, you are greeted by bright living spaces where contemporary design is combined with antique furniture and eye-catching artworks created by the owner Iris. Mas els Igols serves not only as a holiday home, but in a way also as a 'private museum', where unique lamps, ceramics and paintings form the decor of this house.
There are 7 spacious bedrooms, each with a modern bathroom en suite. Although there is enough space and privacy in and around the house, the atmosphere is very warm and homely. After a few hours, everyone will have found their own favourite spot (the yoga room, the patio or maybe amongst the vines). In the evening, cooking enthusiasts can indulge themselves in the large kitchen or you can choose to have a private chef prepare your meals.
Outside, rural Catalonia awaits, almost as beautiful as the interior of Mas els Igols. The Mediterranean garden, complete with a large new saltwater pool nestled among the olive trees, wood-fired pizza oven and terraces around the entire house, has endless views of the vineyards.
Mas els Igols is a remarkable and serene place, where you not only enjoy your holiday, but where you can also experience unique workshops, clinics and services such as yoga and meditation classes, art workshops, coaching sessions or wine tastings. In short, expect a holiday (or a special occasion such as a wedding or business event) tailored to your needs in the dreamy setting of the Catalonian countryside.
All accommodations in our unique collection meet our high standards in quality, comfort, style and setting. We visit every place, meet the owners and explore the area, so we are sure that you will have a great holiday here!

Mas els Igols is located on a quiet road that is only used by three houses, just outside the typical Spanish village Torrelles de Foix (3 km). The small village provides all daily amenities and has a few simple restaurants, shops and a supermarket. The village is situated on the edge of the wine region of the Spanish cava and is affectionately called the 'Tuscany of Catalonia' by proud locals. It is wonderful for walking and cycling (which you can rent through a local bike shop). In the vicinity you will find a number of beautiful wineries, including the world famous Torres, where you can go for a wine tasting and delicious lunch or dinner.
The wine capital Vilafranca del Penedès is about 10 kilometres from the house. It is an authentic and lively town and every Saturday there is a big farmer's market with local products. Other nice places to visit are the coastal towns of Sitges (35 km) and Vilanova i la Geltrú (32 km). Further away, you will find the world heritage city of Tarragona (65 km) and Reus (75 km), with its modern architecture and many shops.
The green hills that surround the house are ideal for sporting excursions, such as cycling. Within walking distance you will find beautiful waterfalls where you can drink directly from the rock, but also caves. At a 45 minute drive you will find the most famous mountain of Catalonia, the Montserrat. Here is a monastery where you can admire the history of the Catalan culture and you will also find a beautiful hiking area.
You can fly to Barcelona airport (60 km).
