I am seeing a big number of designer cottages for rent lately. It seems to be a big thing these days to have a vacation property decorated by an interior designer, then, hope for magazine publicity and put it up for rent.
Take for example this restored cottage in Spain, located in the heart of the Penedès wine region, just 35 km from Barcelona.
“Mas Joliu” is the jewel of Catalan countryside. The property itself is situated on rolling hills that are covered by some of Spain’s most beautiful vineyards and olive groves, and with the stunning Montserrat mountains serving as a backdrop. Inside of this beautifully restored cottage, you’ll find an eclectic combination of local antiques and modern pieces, chosen by the well known Spanish designer Marta Esteve.
Nothing was overlooked in this place, from the enchanting patio to the inspiring rustic kitchen. Everything seems to be perfectly placed together and I can’t help but wish I could spend a couple of weeks in this cottage in Spain.
Restored Cottage in Spain
This restored cottage is located in the heart of the Penedès wine region, just 35 km from Barcelona.
The expansive door adds some architectural interest and plenty of natural light.
Living Room Design
You can’t help but feel the warmth of this space. The stone walls are incredibly charming and the decor complements that.
The left wall and the ceiling was painted in a deep red. The color is repeated in many other decorative accessories in the room.
Traditional with a Twist
Here, the designer mixed traditional pieces with contemporary to break the seriousness of the space.
The owner collects crystal vases.
This kitchen took my breath away! There’s something so sexy, so real about this space that’s rarely found.
From Top to Bottom
The brick wall is original to the house, but what really steals the show is that incredible ceiling and doors.
Bed & Bath
Wouldn’t this be the perfect place to have your honeymoon?
This bedroom is so romantic and charming! I love the furnishings and the beams. Dreamy!
And talking about “dreams”… this is looking very inviting to me! 🙂
Yes, all of this is in Spain! Can it get any better than that?
A good reason to get out of the bed!
Sing Me a New Song
This bird house is from a flea-market in France. Isn’t it adorable?
Once Upon a Time
Treat yourself today… get some flowers from your garden (or buy some) and bring it to the table. Make your day feel more beautiful, more special.
You deserve to surround yourself with beauty!

Want to pack your bags to Spain? This cottage can actually be rented for: 600 € per night — 3,500 € per week or 10,000 € per month. It’s a “steal” when compared to the rental Summer Home we saw yesterday.
Which one would you rather stay at?
I’m in a gratitude mood right now… 🙂 I know I’m always thanking you guys for coming here and I’m sure it can feel a bit too much at times. I get that. But I often have this strong feeling in my heart, this deep gratitude for having you guys here and I feel I should share it with you.
I honestly hope you always feel “at home” here. I prepare my posts with the hope they will not only inspire you to live better, or dream more, but also — and probably more importantly– I hope my posts can make you relax.
Life is not always easy and many of us have way too many worries… So, think of this blog as your “5 minutes of stress-free zone”.
How about that? 🙂
I’m wishing you a very positive day!

I love that warm palette, and I love Spain. I would never leave!!!
How wonderful would it be to spend a vacation here? I’m especially in love with the kitchen, which is not only stunning but looks like a warm and welcoming spot to spend time cooking (and eating!) in. It’s all beautiful–thanks, Luciane! 🙂
Luciane your blog is my get-away and I look forward to it all the time. I peak at work at what awaits me and when I get home after dinner it is such a treat to relax and dream. The color inspirations I take with me help with decisions in my rooms. Have a great week.
Ohh this cottage is perfect! I love it! So romantic and gorgeous. I love the bedroom, so nice…
Darling! I love the charm, its misleading from the outside….looks so much bigger inside. Love it Luciane!
Thanks for always giving us such beautiful moments of “get away!” Your blog is one of my absolute favorites and I always save it for when I have time to savor it!
Hoping your health issues are at bay. Please keep us updated. Thanks again for the time you put into this blog!
I LOVE this kind of rustic European cottage, but then I tend to like smaller, cozier spaces with an Old World vibe. The one in Massachusetts was lovely, too, and would be good for a large family vacation, but this is dreamy.
