Living local is a great chance to make a real difference using "Responsible Tourism" which are supporting the local Catalan farmers as it aids maintaining traditional ways of living. Renovating the beautiful country homes, with a high degree of respect, stops the areas of mass tourism to grow larger and preserve the stunning scenery, wildlife and glory in Catalonia's historic buildings and precious heritage.

Stay in a wonderfully furnished house with large swimming pool
Masia Padrét is a unique holiday house – both inside and outside. The region is very warm and the sun shines a lot, and therefore you would want to spend much of the time in the large swimming pool or on the nice roof terrace. However, this holiday home is furnished and designed indescribably beautiful. You can really see how creative and tasteful the owners of the holiday home are. An example of this is the dining table, which they made from antique wine barrels. These were stretched by a carpenter into this unique tabletop.
In addition, this holiday home is very well located with small, authentic villages nearby and with a little over one hour’s drive to Barcelona or Tarragona.
The house has three floors. The terrace area is situated on the same level as the first floor (see the photos). There is a cozy seating area and you have a wonderful view over the beautiful surrounding countryside. Next to the terrace, there is a small courtyard with a large barbecue and firewood. From here, there is also an entrance to the dining room of the house, so it is easy and convenient to cook the meals outside.
From the courtyard, there is a few steps up to the swimming pool. With a size of 45 m2, it is a great place to enjoy the Catalan summer. There are also built-in stairs into the pool, so everyone in the family can join in, and there are seating facilities at the pool, so you can take turns enjoying the sun and cool off in the water. The pool area is fenced for security reasons.
The kitchen is on the first floor with a small balcony. It is very well equipped, so if you prefer, it is easy to prepare meals at home. Additionally, it is very modernly designed - but you can still see the rustic, authentic look with the beamed ceilings and wooden table, which is made of an old ramp that was used to transport grain. Only separated by some glass doors, there is a very beautiful dining room with the before mentioned dining table. Here, there is also a sitting area with TV and fireplace and comfortable sofas. It is also possible to buy delicious local food products from the region.
The house can accommodate 10 guests. There are five very nicely decorated double rooms. In addition, there is space for two additional guests against a small fee. The owners have put a lot of effort into making the rooms comfortable and beautiful, and several of them have good views over the countryside. There are both rooms with double beds and rooms with twin beds. One of the double rooms has its own en suite bathroom – the others share three spacious and beautiful bathrooms.
On the ground floor, there is a small hall with table football.
There is also Wi-Fi in the holiday house.
The house is located just 5 km from the charming town of Santa Coloma de Queralt. Here, there are shops and plenty of restaurants. Additionally, there is also market every Monday, which certainly can be worth a visit.

Description of the region :
Penedes is Catalonia's leading wine region located southwest of Barcelona and considered to be aligned with Rioja in popularity. Penedes is one of the oldest wine producing areas in Europe with emphasis on white wine varieties, which primarily are used for sparkling wine, but also reputable oak-aged reds are produced The calcareous soils of Penedes is perfect for the wine production, which can be traced back to the Phoenician time when the Chardonnay grape was introduced. Penedes region is divided into three:
Penedes Baix is the lowest lying coastal region, where the climate is hot and where the soil is a mixture of limestone and clay, which is well suited for growing Camacha and Tempranillo grapes.
Penedes Medio has a cooler climate and the wine is grown on hill sides in the hilly landscape. This area produces approx. 60% of the Penedes wines, especially the white varieties Xarello and Macabeo.
Penedes Alto is, as the name suggests, the highest lying area with the highest humidity.. The Alto region is known for light, lemon flavored white wines, for example Parallada, grown in up to 800 m above sea level. Some of the vineyards are considered to be among the best in Europe.
The capital, Vilafranca del Penedes, lies on the left bank of the Foix river and on the main line between Barcelona and Tarragona (AP 7) Founded in the mid-12th century and was several times the seat of Corts (parliament).
