Mas els Igols is situated in the Penedes, the area known for the production of sparkling wine, Cava nowadays also sold as Classic Penedes. It is a green oasis 50 kilometers outside of Barcelona city. The climate is Mediterranean, the valley is just behind the first hills running alongside the blue waters and white sandy beaches of the Costa Daurada. The result is mild winters and warm summers. A fresh thermal wind cools down the valley of els Igols on the warmer days. Two small waterfalls coming out of a large forested area run on walking distance behind the house making els Igols a local green oasis perfect for walking, cycling and the production of a variety of good food and drinks.
