“Gorgeous retreat”
Reviewed 25 September 2009

I stayed here with my husband for 4 nights and everything about the Masia was fantastic. A brief summary of the highlights:

- gorgeous, quiet location overlooking the mountains (NB: you need a car to get to Sitges 8km away, but that wasn't a problem for us as we wanted a quiet holiday - we went into Sitges for dinner or lunch on each day, and had our other meal at the Masia)
- lovely large room (more like a suite) with powerful shower, own terrace with splendid views, and very comfortable bed
- excellent cooking from Gene and Simon - especially the scrambled eggs!
- fabulous, relaxing pool area, again with those amazing views
- an "honour bar" help yourself system that works really well and is very inexpensive (9 euros for a bottle of very good wine)

This isn't a "super modern" corporate hotel, but if you like character, wonderful views, and a personal touch from your hosts, I would definitely recommend it.

PS - nearby Carnivore restaurant is also a must for amazing beef.

If you get the opportunity to stay at this gorgeous villa then snap it up!!

Having stayed in villas all over the world this one really is so very special. The rooms are all individual and totally unique, the views are stunning - especially from the Jacuzzi and the owners do anything to make sure you have the best time possible.

It's perfect for a retreat or as we did a break with the girls - there really is something for everyone!!

We found it on the internet last year, and stayed here for 4 days in July 2007. Loved it so much, went back again this year! (same time - July)

Note: For the summer months, the B&B is exclusively gay & lesbian.

Outside the hustle and bustle of Sitges (10 mins away), up in the hills. if you have a car (recommended if you want to access Sitges and environs) be warned - the access road is horrendously steep, and the last few 100m's are BADLY potholed. Taxi drivers have been known to refuse to do the last push up the hill! But worth it for the views, and the lower temperatures (away from coast, up the side of a mountain).

Rooms are wonderfully styled, with air-con, and great on-suite facilities.
Honesty bar in operation.

Food is reasonable, if a bit simple and over-priced - definitely the evening meal could do with a few Euros being shaved off (€25).

Will be going back again ...

Gay owned B&B I stayed here as part of a group of woman celebrating a friends 40th. Booking the place out it comfortably accommodated the nine of us. Each room is uniquely decked out, large and with huge bathrooms! The pool area was lovely (although it was a little cold to swim). The spa wasn't working which was a bit of a disappointment but the relaxed easy going atmosphere made up for it. Our hosts were wonderful, very helpful and cooked great breakfasts (included in the price) and organized a special birthday dinner at our request (bringing in a local woman to cook paella!). Up in the hills behind Sitges La Masia is just far enough away from the crowds while still making for a reasonable taxi fare if you want to enjoy a few vinos in town. The road leading to the Villa is rough so go easy if you have a rental. It's not at the top end for a B&B but if you like an easy going atmosphere this is the place to go.

We have just returned from the most magical 5 days at the Masia Casanova. A hidden oasis 10 mins drive from the centre of Sitges. The
rooms were spotless, beds comfortable and we were made to feel so welcome by the two charming owners, Jean & Simon. Highly recommended.
We will return......

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at La Masia Casanova. The house and grounds were beautiful (even in February), the food delicious and the hospitality gracious. We found La Masia on the internet and based our decision to stay there during our trip to Barcelona and Sitges on the previous reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed in the least. We highly recommend La Masia Casanova.

We stayed for 2 wonderful nights at this lovely B&B. The operators (Simon & Gene) could not be more accomodating and friendly. The room was wonderful and clean with lots of ammenities. They have a wonderful pool/spa/sauna that really seperates this place from anywhere else we stayed during my 1-month europe trip. The location was somewhat difficut at first to find but the map on their website was really clear. This B&B is really an oasis and the owners are doing a wonderful job.

The GPS coordinates are N 41 16.667', E 001 44.359'. This will lead you to the front door if you have a GPS.
