Almiral de la Font is a luxuriously restored masia just south of Barcelona. Staying at Almiral is a unique experience: renovated with great care and attention to detail, this beautiful
Almiral de la font, meaning "admiral of the (water) spring", enjoys huge grounds whose grapes are used for Freixenet, Cordoniu and other local cavas. Amongst the 14 kilometres of private tracks you will also find pear, olive, cherry, walnut and almond trees in addition to many naturally growing herbs and vegetables (asparagus, rosemary and mushrooms). The house, a protected building and fortified masia, was built before 1592 and was extended in 1800. It has been and continues to be a significant landmark in the Garraf area and was formerly used for winemaking and farming. Though totally renovated and adapted to a high standard of modern comfort, the original details have been preserved, in particular the wine presses and bodega. The windows have been enlarged to allow in more natural light. Balconies and terraces have been added.
The beautiful beaches of Sitges are a short 10 minute drive away. There are 17 different beaches along the 4 m stretch. Beaches in front of the main town have sun beds, umbrellas, showers, bars and pedallos available. Barcelona is only 30 minutes away and is best known for its Gaudi architecture, pulsating night life and avenues for strolling along. There is plenty of family fun, with an excellent aquarium, IMAX cinema and shopping malls. Only 45 minutes away is Port Aventura, the second biggest theme park in Europe. Set up by Universal Studios, it has one of the fastest roller coasters and rides for all ages. The Garraf Park is one of the best nature parks around Barcelona. The park has excellent walking or biking paths, and is a highlight for anyone interested in wildlife. Some of the best European golf courses are easily accessible from the masia.
