Modern Comfort in a Modernist House
Cal Florit is an exquisite choice for friends and families who wish to experience the essence of Catalunya. It is also an exceptional venue for all type of business and group sessions.
Cal Florit, one of the most emblematic houses in Alt Penedès, was constructed between 1900 & 1913 in the Modernist tradition of Gaudí and Domènch i Montaner. All of the original details of the house have been carefully and lovingly preserved and restored to their original state. Cal Florit is catalogued by the Government of Catalunya as of special architectural interest. Located in the quiet wine-growing village of Les Cabanyes, the house is surrounded in its entirety by vineyards and features unparalleled views of Montserrat and the county of Alt Penedes, famous for its cava, or Spanish champagne. Ideally located, Cal Florit is three minutes from the capital Vilafranca, 20 minutes from the splendid beaches of Sitges, 45 minutes from Barcelona, Port Adventura and the Roman Ruins of Tarragona.
Cal Florit consists of over 400m2 of livable space, beginning with its sitting room which features a wood-burning fireplace and TV via satellite. A separate kitchen with modern appliances and dining room, all with access to and views of the garden. There is also a children´s playroom with a sofa bed and large bathroom.

We also provide a cradle for infants. Three full baths and two terraces complete the floor.
