About our home

Our modern rustic townhouse with beautiful mountain views is already FULLY BOOKED this summer.

All swaps are subject to a professional cleaning service fee of 75€.

“Can Mariano” has over 2,300 square feet of living space spread over 3 floors and sits beautifully in the heart of Viladrau, a quaint mountain village in the Montseny Forest Reserve that is a laid-back holiday spot where local celebrities and royalty go to lay low, shedding their celebrity in the fascinating and welcoming mountainous landscape. It’s all about an easy sophistication in Viladrau. Nobody really dresses up for supper here, and even though well-known people have houses here, nobody cares!

“Can Mariano” has 3 large bedrooms, 1 small office, a spacious upstairs hallway-turned-playroom full of the kids' toys. Our three-storey townhouse also has 3 bathrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, not to mention a pantry/utility room and fire stove on lower level. Our bright and open plan sitting and dining room overlooks the rear garden from where you get lovely views of some of the highest mountains of the Montseny Massif. You also get stunning views of the mountains surrounding us from the bedrooms. Our sitting room is equipped with dvd player and a large flat-screen TV with Netflix® and Amazon Prime TV so that you and your family can have a lovely family film night, if you so wish.

“Plaça Major”, our village’s main square is just a 30-second walk from our front door and is bustling with a variety of interesting cafès [, well-known restaurants [La Cerve, Hotel Masia del Montseny, Can Berri], unique bars [El Drau, Àgora] and a very well-stocked local grocery [Pròxim] that is open 7 days a week and whose well-stocked shelves even include fine foods and niche products so that you can whip up a restaurant-worthy meal at home. This part of our village is also the place to go if you are looking for small privately-owned shops where you can shop for gourmet, business, home and wedding gifts.

Professional Cleaning Service: 75€ for quick clean visit.

Neighbourhood

Moments from the toll free C-25 motorway --which connects the Catalan Transversal Range mountainous region to Barcelona and to the Costa Brava coast-- our modern 3-storey child-friendly rustic townhouse is tucked away in the heart of the quaint mountain village of Viladrau. Viladrau is nestled in the Montseny mountains, and is a laid-back summer holiday spot where local celebrities and royalty go to lay low, shedding their celebrity in the beautiful welcoming mountainous landscape. Our village's main square is just a 30-second stroll from our front door and is bustling with a variety of interesting cafès, well-known restaurants, unique bars and a very well-stocked local grocery that is open 7 days a week and whose well-stocked shelves even include fine foods and niche products so that you can whip up a restaurant-worthy family meal at home. The toll-free C-25 motorway is a great access point for all that Barcelona and the Costa Brava have to offer. The beautiful Costa Brava beaches are just a 45 min drive [Cala Sant Francesc, Santa Cristina, Santa Bàrbara] from the house, as are Barcelona and Girona so you’re really spoilt for choice!
