About Filippa Nilsson

My name is Filippa and I studied Hotel Management in Barcelona. Worked in NY, London, Paris and Seoul and finally settled down near Barcelona almost 12 years ago.

My husband and myself we run this four country side villas since 2009.

Filippa Nilsson purchased this villa in 2005

Why Filippa Nilsson chose Alt Penedes

We bought this ruin in 2005 because of the place, its history (medieval arches and defense tower) and its location in the middle of nature.

It took three years to complete the constructions of the four villas and in 2009 we welcomed our first guests.

The villas are surrounded by nature, so it is always peaceful and calm. We love working there...it is like time is endless.

It is a quiet place but not far from Vilafranca del Penedès (10 minutes), beaches (20 minutes) or Barcelona (45 minutes) by car.

What makes this villa unique

We mainly recommend Casa Rural La Torre to everyone, but especially for family and friends gatherings.

We can provide between 26-30 beds, so it is perfect for large groups who want to stay in a friendly nature spot.

In summer we have the pleasure to rent out to foreigners and it is so nice to meet so many different nationalities.

All four villas are independent, quiet and private. However it happens that guests with families get to know each other a little bit more at the swimming pool area or doing ping-pong competitions.

For healthy people it is the perfect place to run, ride your mountain bike and stroll around. We are just 5 minutes drive from the Garraf area.

This is simply a perfect holiday destination!

The house itself (number 12) is absolutely stunning and, along with the other three houses, has been restored with an extremely impressive eye for detail. The property is well equipped and very clean. The house is located in a delightful location with the most tranquil surroundings and spectacular views. Our children spent hours on end in the pool and we thoroughly enjoyed walks in the woods, which are immediately outside the house. Superb beaches are but a short drive away (25 minutes).

Filippa and her family are the most hospitable, helpful and friendly owners we have ever been hosted by. Right from the very first time we contacted Filippa and till the day we said a reluctant goodbye we were extremely well and warmly looked after, and we would love to return for another holiday in the very same house.

This is truly a gem and it has been a real privilege to holiday at Casa Rural La Torre. We would recommend it to anyone – you will love it!

Superb mountain biking country

  • 5 of 5

Photos don't do justice to the beauty of this place. It's been beautifully restored, all you could ask for from a rustic location. I'm a mountain biker and there are unlimited miles of trails, many of them lung busting climbs through vineyards to mountain views of the sea. Much better than I anticipated.

Filippa is a great host. She went the extra mile to make us welcome, comfortable and dealt with minor problems immediately.

It's a rural location but dosen't feel remote. Roads are good and Barcelona is less than an hours drive for a night out.

Highly recommended, Thanks Filippa

Perfect rural family holiday

  • 4 of 5

A 4-bed, 2-bath house within an extremely well restored finca complex including 3 other houses among the vineyards near Vilafranca Del Penedes. Sitges & Barcelona within easy reach so ideal for a holiday combining city culture, amazing beaches, beautiful walks and lots of relaxation by the pool. The house is spacious, clean & well-equipped and the owners provide very friendly and responsive service. I would recommend it to anyone.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at this beautiful villa. We enjoyed lazy days by the pool, kids enjoying swimming. We went hiking and running, as the path ran through the property. A 20 minute drive down to the beach, and a short drive to the famous vineyards of Penedes.

Filippa took excellent care of us and made us feel very welcome to the villa. And she gave some great tips on beaches and close by restaurants.
