Another magnificent villa from Villasbarcelona, Mas Grau was one of the First houses to join us back in 1997!

Set in lush farmlands only 8 km SE of Girona's provincial capital - a fascinating historical city - this venerable fortified farmhouse occupies an privileged hillside position surrounded by fruit trees and woods, offering marvelous views of the Medieval village below (Estanyol), and the Mediterranean coastal plain stretching to the sea.

Mas Grau was built in the 12th century and was the fortress of the Viscount of Cabrera. This entire area is renowned for its pristine medieval villages, the beauty of its countryside, and the area's gastronomy - whether you eat out at a restaurant or buy local produce from nearby markets - is now rated top-notch, with four 3-star Michelin restaurants within a short drive from the house.

There were 16 of staying at Mas Grau and we all had a fantastic time. The age range was from 8 to 70 and the facilities were great for everyone. The pool, beautiful spa and games room were well used throughout our stay and the teenagers were all happy with the wi-fi that was available. There were plenty of beautiful places to visit in the area and we enjoyed a few days at the beach which was about 40 minutes away. The house is one of the loveliest we have ever rented and we would love to return!

Mas Grau is a great place to stay, especially with a larger group. We are 8 women (members of a Portland, Oregon book club) who traveled together for one week in Spain - Catalunya - and one week in Provence, France. Mas Grau is an amazing, gorgeous stone villa, quite large, with many bedrooms and bathrooms. The grounds are beautiful. We made day-trips from Mas Grau to close-by towns that are totally worth a visit, including Besalu, Girona, Figueres (Dali Museum), Epicuries (ancient Greek and Roman ruins), Cadaques, and the Montserrat Abbey. And it's only about an hour's drive from Barcelona. At the end of each day we'd return to the fabulous Mas Grau and have a dip in the pool, or maybe some hot-tub and sauna/steamroom time. We had such a good time. The caretakers are only about a kilometer away and couldn't be nicer or more helpful. You do need a car.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
2 WEEKS RENTAL MINIMUN IN MID & HIGH SEASON. We like to have a day between rentals to properly clean and air out this huge house, so flexible changeover days all year round. I repeat, in mid and high season this is not a Friday to Friday or Saturday to Saturday rental. You can come in any day you like and pay only for the nights you stay! Prices are all inclusive and there are no extra or hidden charges whatsoever. Low-season weekend rates: 1.400 € (2 nights) + 300 € per extra night, 1 weekend price minimum.

Getting to Estanyol and the Mas Grau villa is easy.

Take exit 8 of the AP-7 highway towards the Girona airport and at the traffic circle just in front of the airport precinct take the First exit towards Aiguaviva.

Stay on that scenic & interesting road going around the airport and when it ends at the traffic light, turn left going uphill and at the top of the hill, exit right for Estanyol.

You could go straight to the house, which you can see from here, but I think it is best to meet up with Josep, the caretaker, at his beautiful familyl restaurant/terraced bar/café & tennis club called Estanc Nou. This place, with a fantastic midday 3 course menú at 10 Euros, all included, Will probably become your home away from home.
