CHARMING LUXURY 5 BEDROOM HISTORIC VILLA, A POOL & GAUDI GARDEN.

Alella Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

A dream stay in Barcelona

‘Las Cuatro Torres’ is a stunning five-bedroom luxury villa, ideally

situated in the charming village of Alella - within easy reach of the Catalan coast, mountains and just 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona city center.

Dating back to 1629, this historic family residence has been in the same family for the last six generations and is only now, for the first time, available to discerning clients. The property has been recently refurbished and updated.

One will enjoy maximum peace and privacy whilst staying at ‘Las Cuatro Torres’ with sea-views, the historic ambiance of the house or lazing by the pool. Although there is also plenty to do should you wish to venture out and about.

Given the peace, privacy and exclusivity of ‘Las Cuatro Torres’

it’s perhaps no wonder that it’s a residence visited in the past by

Spanish royalty and sought after by international rock stardom

alike.

The village of Alella is known for its wines and nestles in the heart of the oldest vineyard growing area of Spain.

This wonderful property and grounds together cover 22,000 sqm

(about 5 ½ acres) and gently slope upwards between coast and

mountains.

In addition to the spacious historic home, guests will also enjoy the garden and grounds. These were designed by the renown Catalan architect Fontsesere i Mestre, together with his then apprentice, none other than the world famous Antonio Gaudi.

The grounds were landscaped to include a unique ‘montagne’

(designed hillock) set into the natural landscape that one can walk right through, a contemplative garden pond, swimming pool and outdoor barbecue area.

The grounds also contain woodlands and a log-cabin ‘wendy-

house’ for children to explore. Near the entrance to the property

is a delightful small private chapel typical of historic Catalan and

Spanish residences.

A Historic Home.

The property extends to 450 sqm/4,850 sqf: there is a large formal dining room covering over 40sqm in area and seating up to 14 with sea views, an informal breakfast room/daily dining room with garden views seating up to 10 guests, a large living room and a private living room with multimedia facilities and broadband

internet and comfortable sofas. Guests will also enjoy a large well equipped kitchen.

Idyllic Peace.

The large, bright and airy rooms of this stunning luxury home will

give you a wonderful sense of peace and well-appointed comfort.

Perhaps most of all though guests will appreciate the privacy

that ‘Las Cuatro Torres’ has to offer. On entering the grounds

its as if the rest of the world disappears amidst the peace and

luxurious serenity of a wonderful bygone era.

The gardens and grounds with lake, aviary, tended lawns and

maintained woodland cover a spacious 5 ½ acres.

Location.

What really makes ‘Las Cuatro Torres’ special is the choice guests have between the peace and privacy of a delightful historic home and yet also the wonderful range of activities available on your doorstep for when you feel like venturing out.

Located in Alella, a charming village just 19 kms (20 minutes) from Barcelona city center. Alella is in the oldest vineyard growing area of Spain, overlooking the sea and Coastal range (Serralada litoral) and located within the Maresme area .

With the sea, mountains and Barcelona all close by you will be

spoilt for choice when it comes to fun family or group activities and amazing local cuisine.

The Maresme area (adjacent to the Costa Brava) with its

wonderful cuisine, everything Barcelona, surely one of the great

European cities, has to offer and cultural activities aplenty in and

out of town.

Near Las Cuatro Torres you have access to a wide variety of

holiday activities, just some of which listed below.

Wine.

You might like to visit the nearby local wineries of Alella. We can

also offer wine tasting at home in 'Las Cuatro Torres' own cellar

with your personal sommelier, famous Catalan wine expert Rosa

Vila. Rosa’s wine tasting experiences use food as compliment so as fully explore the delightful flavours of each wine. Wonderful and highly recommended!

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
We have just enjoyed two amazing weeks at Las Cuatro Torres. This unique property has a very special character provided by a huge and unique garden...in my opinion the crown jewell!...which includes a great pool/BBQ area, a pond and some other surprises....
The house is fully renovated but has kept the essence of this historical property.
The staff is very friendly and has contributed to make our time in the property the perfect holiday.
The ideal location, right at the heart of Alella, a beautiful village very close to Barcelona city and Maresme beaches, has allowed us to have a great mix of actives.
Overall, a fantastic experience and a memorable time for our family and friends.
