This Must Be The Place
Mas Casamitjana

The Setting

Set on the edge of a valley overlooking the rolling Catalan hills and with the foothills of the Pyrenees in the distance, the centuries-old ‘Mas Casamitjana’ enjoys a stunning location near the charming town of Moià, and boasts some of the prettiest sunsets you’ll ever see.

They are located about an hour from Barcelona and its airport, and also from Girona and its ‘Costa Brava’ airport. Barcelona has a reputation as one of the trendiest cities in Europe, and the province of Catalunya is well known for its wonderful climate, beautiful natural light, fantastic food and wine.

The Vibe

This Must Be The Place has been created by British owners Jo and Duncan. They came to Barcelona with a dream, and have used their experience in UK music festivals and events (Duncan – Bestival / Camp Bestival / Sunday Best) and film production (Jo – films inc ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’), plus a load of hard work, to turn it into a reality. They can’t wait to welcome you to their home.

The centuries-old ‘Mas Casamitjana’ has been lovingly refurbished in a Modern Rustic style. Their philosophy has been to respectfully restore what was old, and where they have added new features they have done so with a more modern touch and lots of bespoke creativity.

There are several event spaces in and around the house for you and your guests to enjoy, and they have all been designed to give you total freedom as to how and where you would like to experience individual elements of your day.

The centrepiece are their three lovingly restored conjoined barns ‘Els Graners’ that open out onto the central courtyard ‘El Barri’. The stairs and balcony lead you up to ‘L’Era’, their large floral yard, and the small but perfectly formed ‘La Caseta’. Down a few steps from there you’ll find a lush terrace garden ‘La Feixa’. Adjacent to L’Era you will also find ‘El Mirador’, a large grassy space with stunning views and higher still ‘El Paddock’, a ceremony and photo-call space with jaw-dropping 360° views.

Say ‘I do’, eat, drink and dance – in or out (or shake it all about) – you decide.

They have 4 spacious ensuite guest rooms which occupy the entire ground floor and lower ground floor of the main house. They can hold up to 12 people and also come with a self catering breakfast room. For your other guests they have a comprehensive local accommodation brochure.

Their name and philosophy have been inspired by the Talking Heads song ‘This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)’, which songwriter David Byrne describes as:

“A real honest kind of love song… I tried to write one that wasn’t corny, that didn’t sound stupid or lame the way many do. I think I succeeded.”

He did, and they intend to too.
