Dating back to the 15th century, Can Cipres is an authentic Catalan landhouse situated amongst the vineyards in the Penedès wine region, boasting mountain views of the natural park El Garraf and the picturesque village, Viladellops; with its wine cellar and 11th Century chapel and tower. The villa perfectly combines original features and traditional artefacts, enriched with modern touches and all the comforts necessary for a relaxing break.

This romantic and rustic villa is located in unique surroundings of the Mediterranean coast, with its nature, villages and beaches close by; Sitges is within a mere 20-minute drive and reach metropolitan Barcelona in under an hour, making this the perfect place for families, friends and groups to enjoy holidays and special occasions. The property's driveway, guided by cypress trees, creates a magical first impression and leads to the main house, veranda, and comfortable lounge area. More than 3.500m² of private grounds offers privacy to all guests - retreat to the stunning lawned garden and relax among the beautiful plants and trees, including olive, eucalyptus, pines, apricot, roses, lavender, and rosemary. Inside you will find cosy areas to unwind with one of the many interesting books available and an enormous sofa can host all guests who wish to enjoy a movie or a bottle of wine from the surrounding vineyards of Finca Viladellops. Laze beside the 9 x 4m pool set in the tranquil garden or play family games on the large grass area; however you choose to spend your days, this authentic escape fits the bill. As the summer night approaches, the veranda's long table for 20+ guests overlooking the garden is perfect for an evening barbeque with family and friends.

Language

Currency Information

The Euro (€) is the official currency of Spain. Coins are available in 1 cent, 2 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, 50, cent , €1 & €2 denominations Notes are available in €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200, €500 denominations

Money Matters

Travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange or purchase in major cities, but in more rural areas, visit a bank to exchange them for Euros. Major credit cards are widely accepted here (though a limited number of merchants have American Express accounts) and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in-country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

Tipping Suggestions

The Spaniards are fairly relaxed about tipping etiquette. However service is not usually included in restaurants and it is common practice to leave the spare change, or up to 10% of the total in a smarter restaurant. Taxi drivers and bartenders may be tipped less. Many petrol stations are not self service, however it is not usual to tip the station attendant.

Arrival & Departure Formalities

Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have:

  • A signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points.
  • Visas are required for certain nationalities and you are strongly advised to check your status allowing plenty of time for visa application.
Weather

The climate of Catalonia is typically Mediterranean. Therefore you will find many hours of sunshine, mild winters and warm summers. The Pyrenees and the neighbouring areas have a high-altitude climate, with minimum temperatures below 0ºC, annual rainfall above 1000 mm and abundant snow during the winter. Along the coast, the climate is very mild with temperatures increasing from north to south, while the rain behaves the opposite way. The area far from the sea has a continental Mediterranean climate, with cold winters and very hot days in summer.

Health

It is advisable to contact your doctor before you travel if you have any specific health concerns and take out appropriate travel and medical insurance.

Electricity

Electrical service in Spain is supplied at 220-240 volts/50 hertz – a converter/adaptor may be required.

The villa

Because everyone’s concept of a villa holiday is different, we have created a formula designed to offer privacy, flexibility and the freedom to run your own holiday or call upon us to help open up a world of possibilities. Our villas are normally rented on a villa-only weekly basis and are ideal for those seeking independence and privacy. We’re on call in case you need us and we provide a change of towels and bed linen during the week, but otherwise there no inclusions. 

A&K Concierge upgrade

For additional support, comfort and a slice of pampering why not upgrade to our A&K Concierge service. Included is an airport welcome on arrival with assistance for onward transportation; the services of an A&K Concierge – whose local knowledge provides you with invaluable assistance and recommendations; an orientation of the local area; a fully stocked drinks fridge; maid service; the ingredients for your first evening’s supper and breakfast delivered on the first morning of your stay. For full details of concierge inclusions speak to an A&K Travel Consultant on 0845 618 2205.

The finishing touches

Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.

The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.

If you would prefer to discuss your specific requirements, whether it’s in relation to the property or about your stay in general, please do contact us using the Enquire page or please do give us a call for a chat.
