Mas del Puig - The Henhouse: Rural apartment with pool, 1h from Barcelo
average rating of 5.0 based on 14 reviews

A perfect base for exploring an interesting region

  • 5 of 5

We could not fault the accomodation. It was spacious, clean and comfortable, with superb views of Mount Montserrat. It was well located, just outside the town of Castellbell but within walking distance of it. The owners were really friendly and helpful, and spoke excellent English.

The railway station is within 10 minutes walk, allowing us to take a train (one hour) to the centre of Barcelona rather than having to drive and find somewhere to park.

The town of Castellbell has plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, enough to cater for normal needs. If you want to shop in a hypermarket, Manresa is only a 20 minute drive.

The swimming pool area is really nice. We didn't make use of the pool, as it was early season and therefore the water was still a little cool for us, but the area around it has plenty of sun loungers, and some trees to provide shade when needed.

As far as outings go, Barcelona is a must for the Gaudi architecture, especially the Segrada Familia. Mount Montserrat is just as good in its way, and is only a 20 minute drive away. The old part of Manresa, including the cathedral, are well worth a look.

Overall, we are very happy to recommend Mas del Puig to anybody wanting to visit this area.

Superbe Mas, Superbes vues, super accueil!

  • 5 of 5

Le Mas del Puig est un endroit très agréable. Ramon (qui parle un Français parfait) est très accueillant, toujours disponible mais discret et de très bon conseil.

Le logement est très bien équipé et agréable.

Les vues de la terrasse sur le Montserrat sont superbes, on ne s'en lasse pas.

Barcelone est accessible à moins d'une heure de train.

Un petit hâvre de paix à conseiller.

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans notre logement du poulailler. Nous nous y sommes sentis bien tout de suite avec un accueil cordial et chaleureux. La bienveillance et la discrétion des hôtes sont à la hauteur du lieu,paisible, confortable et bien aménagé.

La proximité de la gare nous a permis de belles escapades vers Barcelone.

Une belle adresse à partager...

"charmante location propre au calme avec vue sur la montagne de Montserrat bien située ''montagne et mer '' et bien sur proche de BARCELONE qui est une jolie ville mais avec un mauvais souvenir car dans un jardin de Montjuic on nous a volé notre appareil photo d''un certain prix

mais le plus triste c''est que nous sommes rentré en France sans souvenir de CATALOGNE !!!!!"
