In the south of the Alt Penedès, you can find Cal Barber’s cottage. Approximately one hour from Barcelona, the house is located in the town of Les Masuques, of about 200 inhabitants, where you can breathe the tranquility of being halfway between the sea and the mountains. It is a pleasant rural town surrounded by vineyards, as is usual in these lands.
We present this rural accommodation as another essential for traveling with children, and especially with babies. This contributes to the fact that the cottage is entirely a ground floor, so there is no need to be aware of whether the children go up and down stairs. In addition, it is fully equipped and is ideal to go both in winter with its wood burning fireplace, and in summer for its pool for the little ones. It has two rooms and is equipped for 2 to 6 people to enjoy it.
Baby services include a crib (just ask in advance), high chair and railings for the bed. This for their comfort and safety; for their leisure time they have a nice game room, where there is also a table football for the older ones and lovers of the sport of the ball on their feet.
Already outside, which has spaces for the enjoyment of the whole family, babies will have a great time contemplating the small ecological garden with crops typical of the area; In addition, in the courtyard, of 100 square meters, there is chillout, a covered area to celebrate parties, and the pool for the kids that we mentioned above.
