We have several unique event spaces in and around the house for you and your guests to enjoy and they have been designed to give you total freedom as to how and where you would like to experience individual aspects of your day.
The centrepiece of the venue are our lovingly restored stone barns – ‘Els Graners’ in Catalan.
Previously three separate structures that were once used to house farm animals over two levels, they have been transformed into two large double-height venue spaces connected by a majestic arch. They are great for everything, particularly for dining and dancing.
Forming an L-shape, these buildings fully open out through tall glass bifold doors onto our central courtyard ‘El Barri’.
‘El Barri’ translates from the Catalan as ‘the neighbourhood’ but in the case of Masia farmhouses like ours it is also the traditional Catalan name for the enclosed exterior courtyard space in front of the house.
With all the doors of Els Graners open it combines with El Barri to become an incredible multi-use event space with a perfect mix of sun and shade keeping everyone happy.
El Barri connects the barns to the main house and is a good place for welcome drinks, aperitifs, ceremonies and as a spill out area from activities in the barns (like the late-night dancing).
The stairs and balcony lead you up from Els Graners up to a large open space surrounded by plants, flowers and a pretty stone wall – ‘L’Era’.
This was the original location of the farm’s grain-threshing floor (the beautiful old hand-made tiles that form the floor of El Barri would have originally been here, a long time ago).
L’Era is a perfect location for a wedding ceremony with the plants, flowers and our triangular arch beautifully framing the moment. But equally this unique event space is ideal to enjoy some canapés and fizz during the aperitvo, and plenty big enough for your wedding banquet if you’d like to enjoy it under the stars.
On another side of Els Graners, and down some steps from L’Era, you’ll find our green terrace garden ‘La Feixa’.
This spot has great views of the rolling Catalan hills and the Pyrenees mountains and could also be a magical place for any element of your special day – particularly the ceremony or the aperitivo.
Up above L'Era and La Feixa you will find El Mirador (which translates at The Viewpoint). This is a very large rustic grassy area that is great for welcome drinks, ceremonies, aperitivos, and if you need a large flat space for a big marquee or some giant tipis.
Also, as its name suggests, the views are spectacular!
Higher still, above El Mirador, is El Paddock - a large elevated area with the most amazing 360° views. This field used to have some horse stables in it (hence the name), but we decided to reclaim this area for use in weddings and install an antique iron gate in the middle of it (obvs).
We work with some local organic farmers to put some of our land to good use and they also farm this field with their crops. However, we mow and maintain a circular area around the gate, and paths to reach it, to create a truly magical and unique setting for wedding ceremonies (and an extra special spot for your photographer to take you to).
NB: Some of these photos show the field before our farmer friends started to use it (when Duncan was still ambitiously trying to maintain it himself with a lawn-mower!), but you can still make out the circle and paths if you look closely.
The small but perfectly formed 'Caseta' (Little House) sits right next to L’Era. Its striking blue door gives way to an enchanting space with an elegant 'fossil'-design porcelain floor and a blue and terracotta tiled ceiling.
This space can be used as a bar and shady chill-out area during weddings, or as a break-out space during business events. Or sometimes the caterer likes to use it as a secondary serving area when the dinner or aperitivo are in L'Era. You get first dibs though!
