If spending a holiday in a luxury hotel feels like a repeat of similar experiences you should try a holiday villa. Look for a villa to rent and one of the finest you can get is Mas Mateu, a grand 18th century Spanish villa. It has all the charm and grandeur of the period and has been refurbished to incorporate all the modern conveniences and amenities to provide a truly luxurious holiday experience. In fact certain additions were made to the estate recently. A brand new annex which is contemporary in design has been added along with a swimming pool complex that harmonizes the traditional and the modern design.
Luxurious Accommodation and Dining Experience
The grand Spanish villa has ten bedrooms which have been luxuriously furnished to accommodate 18 adults and four children. Contrary to a hotel, each bedroom is uniquely designed and decorated. The ensuite bathrooms have deep oval bath which are surrounded by glass walls. Guests have direct access to the surrounding forests as these glass walls open out. It is perfectly suited for a large family vacation or an intimate wedding. The traditional architecture of the era is evident in the arched doorway and a series of lounges that offer stunning views of the snow-capped Pyrenees. The holiday villa doesn’t stop at providing comfortable accommodation but provides a gourmet dining experience. The Spanish banquet prepared by an in house chef is truly a Catalan experience. You can ask to be served on many of the open terraces. For a more formal affair you can have the meal in the elegant dining room.
