Casa Felix is a rustic country side manor house located between wine fields and olive groves in the tiny village of Olivella. It is the perfect venue for rustic, villa weddings and wedding weekends. A perfect place for couples who look for a historical, rural and relaxed vibe for their wedding.
Parts of the house date back to the 13th century and used to be the fortified village of Olivella. The property has been renovated, but the original style has been respected. It offers a truly unique atmosphere with, whilst still offering the comforts of modern day living. The property also has it’s own vineyards even if the house itself isn’t a bodega.
What they offer
Beautiful, outdoor ceremony spaces with an intimate, homely and rustic feel to it. They also offer 21 bedrooms (20 of the en-suite, and 1 with a bathroom just outside the room) and can accommodate up to 50 guests, which is perfect for intimate weddings. All rooms are slightly different in size, shape and furnishing. They have 3 kitchens, and 2 outdoor pool areas; one small and one big with infinity pool and beautiful views over the Garraf Natural Park. If you are traveling here in high season you can also take beautiful photos in their wine fields.
Casa Felix offers various spaces for the wedding ceremony. The first one is a patio area next to the main building, where the focal point will be the vegetation of the garden. The second area, which is my favorite, is a rectangular shaped courtyard with large, wooden gate as a backdrop. Because of the stair step, you would be standing slightly elevated here which looks really nice. The third area is a grass area just next to the stone defense wall, with parts of the wall as a backdrop.
Depending on which area you choose for your ceremony, you can then use the other spaces for cocktail. Many couples use the area on the picture above for the ceremony, and then the courtyard as the cocktail space. If you choose to have the ceremony on the courtyard, then you would have the cocktail in the main patio, I think you get the point.
The dinner will be held at the main terrace where you also find the large infinity pool with beautiful views over the landscape. There is a pergola where you van fit a decent sized table. Either long table, or round tables will work. While the venue can sleep 50 guests, they can take weddings up to 70 guests in total.
Plan B for the wedding reception would be an indoor, rustic room also located just next to the same pool area. Two good features with this room is the hight of the ceiling and the possibility to keep the doors towards the pool area. See photo below. This space can also take up to 70 guests.
Just close to the main pool area, there is a direct entrance to the party area which you an find downstairs. One, big plus is that the height of the ceiling is very high so even if you are technically downstairs you don’t feel “trapped”. It’s a sound proof room which allows your guest to party on until late.
Casa Felix is located in the tiny village of Olivella, about a 20-25 min drive from Sitges. Barcelona is a 55 min drive away, and the airport can be found on 35 min drive ahead. The property is located inlands, and the closest beach is located in Sitges. The village has about 3500 inhabitants, and the property is located outside this little village, very close to the old church of Olivella Iglesia de San Pedro y San Félix. A rental car would be a good idea if you plan on exploring in the surrounding areas.
Even if the property has 3 kitchens, catering is required for weddings and events.
What to see/do
As previously mentioned, you have beautiful Sitges close by which you have to explore! Apart from that, the area also has various hiking routes, on one of these routes you will be able to visit a Buddhist Temple which is located in the heart of the Garraf Natural Park.
