About Mas Mateu


Previously voted the Best Residence in Europe at the International Property Awards, Mas Mateu has since been hosting the most elite and discerning clients from all over the world. Situated within an expansive 18th-century estate, this luxury Catalonia villa is the perfect example of classic combining history with contemporary comfort. There are uninterrupted views of the Pyrenees, but you're still only a few kilometres from the rugged delights of the Costa Brava.

Lovingly restored to its former grandeur, Mas Mateu lets you escape to the heart of Catalonia. The staff, including two chefs, a sommelier, butler and concierge, cater for all your needs. The main house sleeps up to 18 adults and five children, and there are also two further residences on the estate , sleeping six and four respectively. Both the Director's house and the Guard House have their own living and dining areas, plus private terraces, making Mas Mateu an ideal getaway for extended families, friends or corporate gatherings.

There's a host of inviting living areas, a spa and cinema. Enjoy some exercise in the well-equipped gym before spending the day by the infinity pool. Dining is a truly Catalan experience. Enjoy a banquet, prepared by the in-house chefs, on one of the many terraces or in the elegant dining room. Combine it with a bottle of Rioja from the fully stocked cellar.

On the rare occasion you need to venture outside this luxury Catalan villa, the surrounding region houses an abundance of gastronomic delights, including Michelin-starred restaurants, and local vineyards.
