Look no further. Simply exceptional. Almiral de la Font is a luxurious manor house by Sitges, just south of Barcelona. Staying at Almiral is a unique experience: renovated with great care and attention to detail, this beautiful ‘masia’ (Catalan manor house), offers high-tech modern comforts whilst retaining the historic charm and character of the original building. Set high on a hillside in the Penedes wine region, the masia is surrounded by the Garraf National Park and offers dramatic sea or mountain views from every room or terrace. This tranquil haven has more than 300 acres of private grounds with vineyards, olive groves and fruit trees, yet is only a 30 minute drive from Barcelona and 10 minutes from the lively beach resort of Sitges. This historic masia is ideal for families and corporate groups, and for occasions such as weddings, filming and production launches. You should try the boutique cava and wine made from Almiral's best grapes.
Golf: Many golf courses are within a short drive of Almiral. The closest is 10 minutes away on the Sitges coast - Terramar club, but there are many more.
Wine: Almiral de la Font makes its own wine and cava. Wine tasting a visits can be arranged.

Stunning Wedding Venue!
Me and my now Husband married several months ago at Almiral. As soon as we viewed the property and met with the owner (Paul) we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The villa is stunning, with amazing grounds and sea view! Paul and his staff were brilliant. Paul answered our many emails, nothing was too much. On the morning of the wedding we were worried about our guests being a little cold sat outside during the wedding breakfast and decided we wanted the outdoor heaters, one quick call to the maintanence man and it was sorted straight away. The villa and grounds were clean with a very well equipped kitchen. We had so many lovely comments from our guests who were in awe of the venue and enjoyed all it had to offer, from relaxing in the jacquzi, chilling around the open fire and playing in the games room. We didn't want to leave and hope to return one day...maybe to celebrate an anniversary!
From start to finish, Paul creates an outstanding experience. He's there as much as you need him, or as little as you need him making sure every last detail is tended to with exceptional service. The only thing better is the house itself, the pictures really don't do it justice and they're pretty outstanding to begin with! Once you arrive the house manages to wow even with your expectations built up. It's an incredible mix of old world class and luxury with modern day amenities! Even in a full week you may not be able to take advantage of all it has to offer. There are two certainties, Paul and his staff will take great care of you and you'll never want to leave. We can't wait to go back!

Stunning villa, unique ambience
We celebrated our wedding together with 35 relatives and friends and experienced our five days at the property as an absolute bliss. Almiral de la Font offered us the perfect location for two families and friends to get to know each other in absolute ideal surroundings. The house and surroundings offer a homely, yet luxurious feel and everyone felt comfortable from the first moment of arrival. I can say that in reality villa with its unique interiors looks even better than on the pictures on the web-site. Every room has its distinctive style and everything left to chance!
Barcelona and Sitges are only a hop skip away offering endless activity opportunities and for those who preferred to stay at the villa enjoyed the pool, table tennis and all other facilities available.
Thanks a lot to the villa's chef - Gillian, she cooked for us every day and everything - food and service, was absolute top class!
We look forward to coming back to Almiral for our Wedding anniversary :)
We booked the villa for a week and used it as our wedding venue. What can I say! The villa is simply stunning and is a fantastic place to chill out or have a party.
Paul has been brilliant and nothing has been too much trouble. Our guests on the wedding day were blown away it makes a beautiful setting for a special occasion. We also hired the chef (Gill) who cooked a lovely meal the night after the wedding which everybody enjoyed. Bill who was the maintenance guy was fab! Very helpful. I would 100% recommend this villa and would love to return some day the trouble is you just don't want to go home!!!
