About Rainer and Ariane Paasch

We are a little family with two boys, aged 7 and 9. Together with our little lady dog 'Snoopy' we d like you to take part in the 'Spanish' way of life!

Penedes is a wonderful landscape, is only little discovered by tourism. We d love to give you loads of good advice, so that you can discover 'our Penedes'.

Rainer and Ariane Paasch purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Rainer and Ariane Paasch chose Alt Penedes

Our house is located beautifully on the top of a hill, enjoying good views to all sides. It s more than 200 years old and invites you to chat, relax and unwind. The atmosphere is very 'family'.

The Penedes region is very interesting and offers many winieries, castles, monasteries and iberian settlements.

Additionally, all sites like Barcelona, Montserrat , Tarragona, the beaches are only a short drive away. Life is slow and tranquile, but everything you might need is close at hand.

What makes this apartment unique

Big, private terraces with gas driven BBQs and with wonderful views

Jacuzzi with fantastic views over the whole valley

Close to the beach, Barcelona, Tarragona

Holiday with a friendly atmosphere

We are at your disposal to help with your planning: visits, wineries, beaches, restaurante ..

Das Studio apartment is gleich wie die Bilder, und das Aussicht ist Wunderbar.

Es war sehr sauber, und den Vermieter war immer freundlich und hatte viele empfehlungen von Restaurants und Attraktionen! Ich mochte dieses Feriendomizil gerne weiter empfehlen bei meinen Freunden.

Wunderbarer Familienurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine Woche mit unserer erweiterten Familie aus Barcelona und Hamburg in Arianella verbracht.

Es ist ja immer ein bisschen spannend, wenn man etwas bucht, das 14 andere auch schön finden sollen. Schon bei der Ankunft waren alle so begeistert, dass ich froh war, dieses Haus ausgesucht zu haben. Wir sind von den Gastgebern nicht nur sehr freundlich empfangen worden, sie haben uns auch während unseres Aufenthaltes mit wertvollen Tipps versorgt. So haben wir eine kleine Familienweinkellerei besucht, die "beste" Paella in einem wunderschönen Strandrestaurant gegessen und tolle Wandertouren gemacht.

Das Haus ist auf einem Hügel gelegen, von dem man auf die Weinfelder blickt. Die Sonnenaufgänge von der Terrasse aus waren wirklich beeindruckend. Was uns besonders gefallen hat, ist ein riesiger offener Kamin, vor dem wir so manche Flasche guten Penedes Weines geleert haben. Ebenso genossen haben wir den Innenhof, in dem man selbst zu dieser Jahreszeit am Mittag grillen und draussen essen konnte .

Wenn wir noch einmal so ein Treffen hinbekommen, kommen wir sicher wieder!

Wunderschönes Wochenende im Penedes

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind im Mai während eines Gewitters in Can Coral angekommen und haben gedacht wir werden in den Muern des alten Bauerhaus erfrieren. Als am nächsten Tag dann die Sonne schien und sich alle Bewohner und Gäste im sonnigen Hof um den Großen Tisch zum Frühstück trafen begann ein wunderschönes langes Wochende in der spanische Wein- und Sektgegend. Die Tipps der Hausherren zu Weingütern, Sektkellereien und Restaurants haben uns fühlen lassen als wären wir schon ewig dort. Ich kann nur sagen: Danke Rainer
