Overview

About the property

Unique property with swimming pool, barbecue and wifi

Can Vives is a fifteenth century villa of 720 sqm built on a plot of 1900 sqm fully restored with large spaces and private pool (8x4 m). It is located on the Costa del Maresme, 2 km. from the beach and 25 km. from Barcelona.

The house has four double bedrooms, two quadruple bedrooms, three bathrooms, two toilets and two large terraces. On the ground floor there is a large entrance hall, two living rooms and a spacious dining room.

The functional kitchen of 40 sqm is located under a large stone arch, combining centuries-old walls and modernity, and it is equipped with everything needed for 16 people. From the kitchen there is an exit to the porch with a summer dining room and lounge with barbecue, connecting with a beautiful IX century chapel located within the property.

This unique property is ideal for holidays and family and friends gatherings and relaxing stays.

It has great privacy but if activity is wished the distances are very short: beach (5 minutes), Barcelona (30 minutes), Gerona and Costa Brava (1 hour), La Roca Village (15 minutes), Forest Adventure (30 minutes), Golf (15 minutes).

The house stands out for the tranquility despite being close to the center of town.

Why Gemma E. chose Cabrils

Family owned for over 6 generations, my husband and I spent a lot of effort and love for years to make the restoration and conservation works. Every single space and every little detail are the fruit of our love for this place.

What makes this house unique

The different large spaces allow both tranquility or activity as desired by the guests. You can be peacefully reading in the hammocks of the porch with beautiful views, swimming by the pool, suntanning in the garden, playing basketball, staying in the living rooms, resting in rooms ... whatever you prefer.

The most amazing and memorable stay here. Do not hesitate to book this villa!

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned home after a weekend break here with friends. It is hard to describe how beautiful this villa really is and was spacious enough for our large party. A weekend wasn't long enough and we didn't want to leave. Gemma the hostess is so accommodating and went above and beyond for us. This has been such a memorable trip we are already planning our next one here. Do not hesitate to book this villa!

The Perfect Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Gemma's gorgeous property for our wedding and could not have been happier. From our very first inquiry, Gemma was unbelievably helpful in every aspect, from questions about the property to logistics about the area.

The villa provided plenty of space for everyone, with 1 master bedroom with a HUGE closet and en suite bathroom. The other bedrooms are large, as are the bathrooms. There are two bedrooms with a shared bath, then the other 3 bedrooms share a bath accessible from the second floor. There is a half bath on the first floor, and one outside accessible from the patio. Really, every space in the home is large .. haha. The kitchen was bigger than expected, and even with 16 people staying there, there were rooms we hardly even went in. Everything looks like it does in the pictures, but is somehow bigger and better when you get there. In the end, we were actually regretful that we planned so many activities, since we wished we could have spent more time at the villa!

For the wedding, we had the ceremony in the 11th century chapel. We had 34 guests, and it comfortably sat all of them (though any more would be very tight). The dinner was held on the cobblestone patio outside the main door, which had some nice tree covering and string lights above it already. The caterer prepared all of the food in the kitchen and used the onsite grill, and I think everything was sufficient for them. The DJ was set up under the covered patio with plenty of space for a bar and comfortable seating as well. Gemma was kind to let us move any furniture we wished, and assured us that it was fine for the music to go until 11pm. The pool space is also very nice, with very well kept grounds. Even if we'd had to move the ceremony inside or under the porch due to weather, it would have been a very nice setting.

The villa is in a lovely residential area, which is very quiet and private. We traveled back and forth to Barcelona every day without a car. There is a bus about a 10 min walk away that takes you into Vilassar de Mar to take the train in, but we normally walked. The walk takes about 30 minutes. If you are staying with any guests who have a harder time walking, I recommend a car, as the villa is on a hill (allowing for a beautiful view of the ocean). All of our wedding guests stayed in Vilassar de Mar, and they all spoke highly of the quaint town.

Thank you for everything Gemma! It was so perfect!

Wonderful Villa, lovely town, beaches great

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, myself and my family of which there were 13 of us had the most wonderful stay. The villa is beautiful and couldn't have asked for more. The kids aged from 12-16 had a great time exploring and loved the pool. The rooms are roomy and the living spaces even bigger. A large spacious kitchen and the extra fridge and freezer space came in useful. Gemma was an amazing host, never too busy to help or answer any questions whilst we were there. Gemma went out of her way to help us all when we were stuck in Barcelona on the day of the attack and both Gemma and her husband came and got us in their cars.

I would definitely recommend Gemma and her property. I would say the only thing is that could possibly have been even better if maybe there had been some air conditioning in a couple of the living areas. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, thank you very much.

Group retreat outside Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house with a number of other Bay Area families for a week this summer. In all we had 9 adults and 6 kids. It is well located even though it is close to a main road. We went to the beach a couple of times, used the train into Barcelona, and also drove into the city several times as well.

There was plenty of room for everyone. The youngest kids spent much of the time in the pool which was a terrific temperature.

Much of the time spent in the house was spent preparing a few big group meals. We pushed two large tables together outside and had those meals you see in vacation photo shoots with huge groups sitting around candle-lit dinners. So the kitchen was central. In general it was well equipped for us and the second fridge came in handy.

There were a few issues like us tripping the fuse but the owner was super responsive.

The only negative was a lot of mosquitos. Would recommend more fans to help combat the mosquitos during the summer months.

Amazing villa!

  • 5 of 5

14 friends and I came to Mas Vives in late May 2017 for 4 nights. The villa was great - very spacious and catered for a big group's needs. The pool was perfect and surrounding garden area was lovely and well kept. The house itself has a lovely kitchen and all bedrooms were a great size with lovely terraces. Before we arrived we knew the place looked great because of the pictures but our expectations were exceeded.

Gemma was a great host and was more than happy to help with any questions we had. The villa itself isn't far from central Barcelona, with taxis and public transport close by. The supermarket was also just a short walk down the road with everything you need and the local towns of Cabrils and Vilasar de Mar were only a 20 minute walk away.

We have only just got back from our stay and would love to come back - would definitely recommend!
