Masia del Marquez

Sant Miquel d'Olerdola, Barcelona, Spain
A 12th-Century Property's Remarkable History Preserved

This historic Masia once belonged to the Mayor of Barcelona back in 1888, with a history that stretches even further back to the 12th century. Originally known as the Casa del Sant Sepulcre, the original builders  donated the house, the adjoining land and the adjacent Roman chapel to the knights of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre.

Several hundred years later, the property was sold to a wealthy silversmith whose daughter married the mayor of Barcelona (and first Marquis of Olèrdola), with some of his belongings remaining in the house to this day. Now the home of an architect and a journalist who inherited the property, it has been lovingly restored with great passion and a careful eye for its legacy. 

Recreated to celebrate a “slow life” philosophy, this villa for rent in Barcelona is an idyllic retreat steeped in history that remains connected to its historic heritage and pastoral beauty.

Surrounded by vineyards and lovely heritage gardens, this villa for rent in Barcelona has a historic legacy that dates back to the 12th century. Still a large rambling estate, the original farmhouse is attached to a Roman chapel originally built for an order of knights.

Restored by the current owners, the renovations mix existing materials and features with subtle modern updates, adapting the spaces into a combination of both rural and urban influences.

The common areas are on the ground floor: an intimate living-dining room, a spacious modern kitchen with views of the gardens, a retro-style utility room and a games area for the kids. On the first floor, there are five double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large reading/game room. Each of the bedrooms feature beautiful views of either the vineyards or the gardens. On the ground floor is a large terrace that wraps around half the house and boasts lovely views of the vineyards

At the back is a romantic garden with 100-year-old trees and a Belle Epoque style swimming surrounded by fruit trees and vineyards. The expansive gardens have plenty of space for play and relaxation in nature.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities, off-site paid parking.

 

AROUND

Thirty minutes outside of Barcelona, the Penedès region is brimming with history, culture, gastronomy and bucolic landscapes. Surrounded by vineyards the town of Olèrdola in the heart of Penedès, makes an ideal base for immersing yourself in the life and culture of this fascinating historical wine growing region.

Surrounded by the Garraf, Foix, Ordal and Olèrdola nature parks the area is also just minutes from the coves and beaches of the Costa del Garraf. Extending from the town of Gavà to Vilanova i la Geltrú into Sitges., the Costa Dorada is on the way to Tarragona, where you’ll find some of the best Catalonian beaches including Canyadel and Muntanyans and the favorite, Platja Llarga, 

A seaside town of celebrated artistic, culinary and cultural treasures, Barcelona is home to stunning Gothic, Medieval, Romanesque and Modernist masterpieces all housed along the sparkling Mediterranean with the forest covered Collserola Hills as a backdrop. 

The Sant Antoni part of the Eixample district is an area that has reinvented itself as one of the premier dining destinations of Barcelona with world class cuisine as well as a colorful and quirky area of shops, bars and cultural spaces in neighboring Raval. 

The Passeig de Gracia and Rambla Catalunya are praised by locals for being one of the nicest in central Barcelona.

Sometimes referred to as the Cuadrado de Oro, it’s the epicenter for modernism in Barcelona and features the work of modernist architects Antoní Gaudi, Enric Sagnier and Doménech I Muntaner.
