The Rest of the Villa

Can Marcer de la Penya is an elegant private home and as such is appointed with the personal and cozy accents that make it so special. The owners used to live here full time, but now reside most of the year in London. Constant upkeep is maintained by them, and a new roof was installed the winter of 2014. It feels like home because it is! Conrad and I are honored to offer it to you for a spectacular stay in Catalonia. Presented here are more beautiful photos for your review.
