About Joseph Verdaguer

After our own experiences travelling and staying in holiday Villas all across Europe, it was very apparent that when dealing with guests coming from abroad, most Villas lacked many things, small details that in the end made our experience less than it could have been. Those home comforts that are the difference between just a GOOD holiday and a GREAT holiday.

From that experience we decided to dedicate our lives to providing outstanding holidays for people from all over the world. So since that moment our company was founded. Maria Àngels and Joseph Verdaguer, set up the company in 2001 with the mission to offer high class Catalan Villas around the Costa Brava, Barcelona ,Spain. We bought, restored and renovated 4 large properties and turned them into High Standard Villas that cater for all needs and for all ages.

Since 2001 we have been renting out our high standard big Villas to a worldwide clientele. Each year making more and more improvements, based on the feedback from our visitors. Yes, we encourage our guests to tell us what they think and then strive to make the appropriate changes. Always using internal personnel to ensure the quality and the standard that we strive to supply. The result has been a success, thanks to the tireless work of our multidisciplinary and flexible staff of 13 people, dedicated exclusively to satisfy the requirements of our guests and to keep the properties in tip top condition.

Joseph Verdaguer purchased this villa in 1999

Why Joseph Verdaguer chose Riudarenes

Our main objective is to turn your Costa Brava holiday fantasies into a reality, in large Villas that you could never imagine existing and always at fantastic prices. In order to do this we are committed to give our guests what we expect for ourselves at home, the convenience, the comfort, the security etc. When you come to stay in one of our high standard holiday houses, you will see that every fine detail has been taken care of for you and you will want for nothing. There is no stress and if there is something extra that you need i.e. Car Hire, daily Fresh Meals, Excursions etc we can give you all the information you need. Staying in one of our houses really is a STRESS-FREE HOLIDAY!

What makes our organization different from others that offer large Villas for rent, in the Costa Brava Barcelona region ?

We only rent our properties out, after we have checked them and approved that they meet the high standards our guests should expect.

We are a family run business and we do not work through rental agencies. The result is that we can rent out our High Standard large Villas at lower prices, provide more detailed information and give that more personal touch to our clients. This results in accuracy, effective and happy guests!

We only specialize in Villas in the Costa Brava , Spain, taking advantage of its breathtaking landscape, amazing golden beaches and how close we are to the Cosmopolitan city of Barcelona.

What makes this villa unique

What can you expect when you contact Masies Serra Magra for information and also when you come to stay in one of our properties for large groups ?

Firstly we will talk to you in-depth and find out what kind of holiday house you are looking for in the Costa Brava. We have years of experience in matching people with their dream Villa. Whether you are a large group having a family reunion, a group of friends celebrating a special occasion, a company team bonding holiday or even a wedding, we have a selection of Big High Standard Villas tailored to your requirements and always in your budget.

Secondly, all our properties have a caretaker who is on call 24 hours day, in case of emergency or because of plumbing, electrical or other problems. A phone number of a contact person belonging to our staff is provided with a brochure called “Useful Information for your Holiday” all our guests receive when booking our villas. In this brochure, which is updated before guests arrival, we have prepared extensive information that includes the nearest supermarkets, open markets, health centers, car rental companies, airlines that fly to Barcelona and Girona airports, the last one is just 10 minutes by car from any of our villas.

Masia aïllada, acollidora i molt ben equipada

  • 5 of 5

Vam passar-hi una setmana de juny per a celebrar el fi de curs 25 estudiants i l’ estada va ser de total desconnexió i repòs en plena natura. La veritat és que la masia és molt millor en la realitat que en les fotos. Ens vam trobar com a casa, hi havia de tot, la masia és molt ben equipada i tot era super net. A més la propietària la senyora Maria Angels, amb l’ ajut del seu equip de manteniment ( sabem que té altres masies a prop) va procurar que en tot moment no ens faltés de res.. Es una masia a recomanar

Big and well-equipped villa

  • 4 of 5

After choosing lots of villas we decided to book Mas ca l’ Estrada with Spanish friends and the stay was exceeded our expectations. There are lots of space in this enclosed property, set in a lovely and tranquil spot only surrounded by pure nature. Beds are very comfortable and linen/ furnishings all clean. The maintenance staff is always available for all requests you may have and supermarkets and public facilities at very easy to reach.

We recommend it for large groups that want to take advantage of a visit to Barcelona and stay in the Catalan countryside a well.

Large and comfortable villa for families

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 families, 31 people in total, and were lucky to make a reservation for a short stay at the beginning of March. The weather was great, sunny and with pleasant temperatures. Villa Mas ca l’ Estrada, though we saw before booking that it had good reviews, was better than we imagined, the location was really nice, quite and very private.

The enclosed grounds of the villa, with the lush garden, the 2 large fenced pool areas and 2 playgrounds were perfect for our kids to play in total safety. The rooms, fully decorated, were cleaned and very well maintained.

The large walkway covered terrace is amazing, it is perfect for having meals outdoors all together.

This large and comfortable villa is ideal for families that want to meet and be away of the mass tourism.We really appreciated our stay and strongly recommend this villa.

Ideal for a large group stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed late February at Villa Mas ca l’ Estrada for a long weekend with friends, and from the enquiry, dealing directly with the owners, through to check out, everything was quick and well organized. The enclosed property is lovely and accommodated comfortably our group of 28, there are 12 bedrooms ,4 kitchens, 2 large pools,.. ! The outdoor area is well maintained and the location, though isolated in the countryside, is easy to find. The maintenance staff of the owner looked after us any time we ask for help. We recommend staying here if you have a large group and want to have access to the Girona Costa Brava region not far from Barcelona !

Truly amazing stay in Catalunya

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in Catalunya and this time we decided to chose a villa not far from Barcelona but close to the countryside.

The location sets in a very private and tranquil spot near the coastal areas of the Costa Brava.

The property is huge, 12 charming bedrooms, 2 large pools, 2 conservatories,....and fully equipped with modern appliances and internet access.

The service of the staff was perfect, in particular Francesc, the handyman. He was available any time during all our stay.

A villa to recommend for big groups.
