The house that we know for Ca la Florinda is the third that has been constructed on the same site. The first was erected to the last quarter of the 18th century. The second was constructed from 1841 and their owners, grandparents of the Florinda, fitted it out like hostel-tavern. The third and last, constructed from the year 1888 for Josep Urgell Ramelló –father of the Florinda-, is a clear example of architecture Spanish-American.

Constructed with innovative materials –use of solid brick instead of stone- and introducing comforts that then were not usual to the village of Bellvei, how it was the system of running water that reached of the water of the cistern placed at the entry of the house, where there was also a press. At present, the cistern, the press and the ancient walls of solid brick can be seen at the entry of the house.

On to burst the civil war, in July of 1936, the Florinda and her sister Antònia, they hanged the American flag on the balcony in order to give to understand that they did not have anything to do with that confrontation and that was left them alone. Ca La Florinda was also known, by this fact, for Ca L’Americana, for the anecdote of the flag.

In 2005, the family Urgell Rocías completely restored the house preserving the original architecture, adapting it to the current comforts, having the vineyard and the wine as a referent.

La cadira de l’Atzar, rather than a luxury cottage

The unique 19th century mansion, El Asiento del Azar (The Seat of Coincidence), is situated in the small and welcoming village of Saifores in the wine-growing region of Penedes. The enticing architecture of the mansion, with its tower and a twelve-window gallery, and the exquisite interior decorated by Dutch artists, is a beautiful contrast to the tranquil and picturesque village and the calm of the surrounding fields of vine and olive trees.

The 19th century main part of the mansion is now restored back to its former glory and we made something special of the interior with murals applied by Dutch artists. Exotic, antique furniture and objects, found on Dutch auctions adds to the whole experience.

With a total living space of 900 sqrm, the mansion has three double bedrooms and two suites, all with beautiful en-suite bathrooms. The dining table in the gallery comfortably seats up to 14 guests, and the walled garden is the perfect place to enjoy a family meal or a large barbeque with friends. The large sun terrace offers a scenic view over the vine-fields all the way to the sea and the mountain range. In the movie room the classics and recent blockbusters found in the library can be projected on the large white wall for a cozy evening indoors.

The two kitchens of the house provide the choice of self-catering. Grocery stores and local markets are found in the neighboring villages less than 3 km away. Breakfast can be arranged at the mansion by prior agreement with the host and hostess. The region is famous for the Catalan slow-food and fresh seafood from the Mediterranean, and offers a wide selection of restaurants suitable for all tastes and budgets.
