Active Holidays Spain


A warm welcome to Active Holidays Spain. The idea of Active Holidays Spain is simple, to provide a great overseas break for people who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and keeping fit, but who also want to enjoy aspects of a conventional holiday. 

We think that our new home, Casa Magica, in the heart of the Penedes wine making region, is the perfect base for anyone wishing to combine a conventional holiday while not losing fitness. The area is beautiful and features many possibilities for walking, running, cycling, swimming and climbing, all of which are possible all year round with the milder climate.

Casa Magica

Casa Magica (The Magic House) is located on a one hectare site in the heart of the Penedes, a region famous for its wines and cava. The two storey house lies just outside the town of Sant Quinti de Mediona and enjoys fine views of nearby pine covered hills.


The house features a 12 metre swimming pool (open April-September) and ample grounds in which guests can walk and relax. Our guests have the use of the entire ground floor of the house; 3 double bedrooms, a small kitchen, a shared bathroom and a large, salon area with its own bar and open fireplace. Parking is available and there is storage for bikes.

The Penedes

The Penedès is one of the most important regions for wine in Spain and features over 150 vineyards, many of which are available to visit. Many of the vineyards sit on the slopes of the pine and oak covered hills, making the whole area highly scenic, and providing some excellent and varied routes, whether cycling, running or walking.

To the south, the coast is a 40 minute drive away, while to the west, the former capital of Roman Spain, Tarragona, is an hour away. To the east, the Catalan capital, Barcelona, can also be reached in an hour by car or train.
