About Servais and Helena Boosten

Servais and Helena Boosten have sympathetically restored the exterior of the building and Helena has used her skills as an interior designer to decorate the property with all the modern conveniences and high standard finishes that one would expect from a property of this outstanding caliber.

Servais and Helena Boosten purchased this villa in 2002

Why Servais and Helena Boosten chose Garraf - Costa Dorada

The mansion is set within 600 acres of private land amid the Garraf National Park. The tranquility and peace it offers is unsurpassable: to be part of the surrounding nature and at the same time to be surrounded by all the modern comforts of today's living is a perfect blend.

We are also an active family and we use the park to its full advantage: walks, biking, trekking, discovering nature etc.

The property offers solitude but its also on the doorstep of Sitges and Barcelona so we can dip in and out of suburbia as and when we want to.

What makes this villa unique

For us, the property has so many but here are just a few that come to mind:

Space, peace, tranquility, nature, the infinity pool gives the impression that you are swimming on the tree tops, the chance to entertain indoors as well as out and of course, the design and comfort of the house itself. So much natural light and the thickness of the walls keeps it cool during the hot summer months.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Helena and Servais.

Just a quick word from the Gerdies.

What a truly amazing and unforgettable holiday you provided us.

The scenery is bound to make you forget all your sorrows, and in our case brought us much closer as a family.

The pool is great, the kitchen is amazing, and the fact that there is no noise whatsoever makes it a unique holiday home.

Your wild boar recepie will be tried out in Sweden as well.



Love from the Gerdies

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful villa in a stunning location. Servais and Helena, the owners are lovely and their story of how they transformed the place Is amazing. Chris from the Boosten Group is really on the ball too, anything you need and he'll be on it. My wife and I visited several villas in Catalonia before booking Casa Nova but it won hands down. It is so traditional yet contemporary and in terms of location is perfect, just 20 minutes from the old town and beach. Don't be put off by the dirt track leading up to it, after a couple of runs you can drive it in just over 10 minutes. We had the wedding of our dreams at the villa and can't recommend it highly enough. We hope to return some day. Thank you.

Rustic Villa creativity Required!

  • 2 of 5

The description of the Villa Casa Nova never mentioned that it was truely remote and that the 10 minute drive up the mountainous road leading up to the house was mostly rocks and dirt with treacherous potholes. The road was such an issues that one of our family completely destroyed a tire and had to spend a morning getting help to put the spare on.

The house is interesting but non functional: the kitchen sink is carved out of old bumpy stones and required the plumber to visit 3 mornings in a row trying to get the sink to drain! Both over coffee pots did not work and they had to replac them. There was no soap or shampoo, no water pressure, the mats and table cloths were dirty when our large group arrived with many children. The house needs an overhaul

and it felt to us that no one had used it in quite some time. We required extra services that we paid for to navigate the location and condition of the house.

perfect wedding venue

  • 5 of 5

We hosted our wedding of 85 people at Casa Nova and it was absolutely perfect. The venue is stunning for photos and to impress your guests, but it is also comfortable and not pretentious, so everyone feels relaxed and ready to party. The owners were fantastic and everything worked well. We will definitely go back just to hang out with friends in the future - maybe for an anniversary.

Perfect place for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 21, ranging from 72 to 3 years of age that spent two fantastic weeks at Casa Nova.The house was as expected, lots of room for all of us, clean and no toilet lines in the morning. It was a paradise for both the kids and the adults with the location in the Garraf National Park. No highrises, no crowds, beautiful view and a gentle breeze cooling us off by a big nice pool. A 15 min ride to Sitges and 40 min to Barcelona if you had to go there.

The services provided during our stay by Servais and Rafael could not have been better.

We can absolutely recommend this place if you are looking for a special treat.

Regards

Berit and Thor

*WOW* Super house in an incredible location

  • 5 of 5

For my 60th birthday this year I decided on a big family holiday, we chose Casa Nova as it looked really beautiful and was big enough for all of us, 10 adults and 8 kids whose ages range from 1 -10. We could not have been happier with our choice, from the moment we arrived and were greeted so warmly by Helena and then Servais to the all to quick departure 7 days later. It fulfilled all our hopes of a stress-free family gathering. We had intended to have day trips and dine out etc, but quickly realised this was not going to happen as we had everything we wanted right there, such a relaxing atmosphere we all felt very content to stay at the house, have barbecue's and enjoy each others company. We all appreciated the space with many seating areas and never felt on top of each other. The kids all played well together all week and I never heard one them complain about wanting to go anywhere. The ping pong table was a real hit, even though the kids turned it into a den thus cancelling the adults tournament! the pool was just perfect and one of the children even learnt to swim in it, what a memory for her!

Set in the middle of outstanding natural beauty with stunning views from every angle and walks to suit everyone, the house is sympathetically and tastefully decorated throughout and felt so homely straight away, the sound of the birds singing is just magical. All in all we had a really great holiday and would love to go back and do it all over again. Thank you Servais and Helena for letting us stay at your beautiful house and thank you so much to Dominique who very patiently responded to all my endless emails with questions and helped with everthing we needed, you're a star!

Beautiful house in a magnificent setting.

  • 5 of 5

We visited Casa Nova villa for my daughter 18th birthday and we were all astonished by the beauty of the villa. It is set in a superb location overlooking the mountains, has beautiful grounds and is tastefully decorated with furniture, fixtures, and kitchenware that is very appropriate for the rustic elegance of the villa.

Casa Nova is magnificent, well maintained estate that provided a fun, relaxing spot for a long overdue family reunion. The sprawling house and grounds were well maintained and the pool and gardens were simply gorgeous. We elected to have our breakfasts and dinners catered, and thanks to Helena and Servais , the food was some of the most delicious we had in Spain!

It was very easy to work with the staff in planning our visit, and though there were a lot of details to sort out in advance, the communication was excellent beforehand, and also during our stay.

This vacation rental is all in all just amazing. Will definitely recommend this to friends and family. If you are looking for something PRIVATE and LUXURIOUS, in a WELL-DESIGNED environment, look no further :)

I highly recommend this stunning villa for anyone that wants to enjoy the best Spain has to offer

If sightseeing in this amazing city gets too much, the golden beaches of the Barcelona offer lazy sun filled days bathing in the safe, clean Mediterranean waters surrounding the city.

PortAventura Park (similar to Disney World)

Waterparks
