Mas els Igols is situated in the Pènedes, famous for producing the Spanish bubbling wine Cava. It is known as the oasis of Catalunya, green, lush and subject to the amazing Mediterranean climate (mild winters and warm summers) with the sea relatively close (20 km as the bird flies). Our valley is just behind the first hills running alongside the blue waters and white sandy beaches of the Costa Daurada. A fresh thermal wind cools down 'els Igols' on the warmer days.
The estate was formerly used as a winery and is surrounded by vineyards that are now taken care of by Pere Rafecas Jr. and Sr.
Two small waterfalls flow out of a large forested area that and splash on at walking distance from the house. The plenty of ground water makes els Igols an isolated green oasis perfect for walking and cycling. The area is known for it's wine & cava production and as 'the food barn of Barcelona'.
Near the house you can visit wineries, a bird zoo, waterfall & picknick areas. A bit further you find Montserrat, nice beaches & Barcelona city with all it's culture and more. Ski slopes are only a 1 1/2 hour car ride away.
