Built more than 250 years ago, Masia con Torre is a historic Catalan manor house steeped in tradition and drenched with antiquity. Once a wine producing property, the magnificent charm of this house consists in the perfect alliance of antique original elements with high-tech comforts. A winning combination that ensures friends and family a haven of tranquillity and comfort all within a 5-minute drive to the hustle and bustle of Sitges.

A private and secluded domain, Masia con Torre is the ideal property for those in search of a truly authentic Spanish escape. From the elegantly furnished kitchen – a treasure trove of Moorish delights - to the original beamed ceilings throughout the property, the heart-warming nostalgia of days gone by is still very much alive in this property. The outside of the property is just as impressive as the inside. An oasis of Mediterranean palm and figs trees set in grounds of 3,000 square metres with an abundance of outdoor ‘relax’ areas, Masia con Torre cannot fail to cater for everyone’s needs. The centrepiece of this tranquil oasis is the huge 23x7m swimming pool.

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.
