This must be the place, you've been looking for! An incredibly unique venue positioned near Barcelona with breathtaking views over the Catalan hills perfect for your jaw-droppingly stunning wedding.
Centring around the 18th-century farmhouse, the rooms, barns, courtyards and gardens have all been lovingly restored in a modern rustic style and carefully designed to offer you several unique spaces to celebrate each element of your special day.
Choosing your ceremony spot here won't be easy at This Must Be The Place, there's so many stunning areas to choose from. L'Era is surrounded by plants, flowers and a pretty stone wall, and features their stylish triangular ceremony arch whilst on the other side of the barns you'll find an outdoor lawned terrace.
Named 'La Feixa' it has amazing views across the rolling Catalan hills with the Pyrenees in the distance, or you have the venue's centrepiece of 3 large double-heighted cojoined barns. Good luck choosing!
There are 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. There is also a well-equipped self-catering breakfast room for your use.
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) 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.
Oh and the views are to die for, and the sunsets are spectacular!

The stylish modern feel mixed with the rustic charm, stunning views and spectacular sunset, everything you would want for an epic day. Welcome to This Must Be The Place.
When my partner and I were looking for a wedding venue, we wanted a certain something we couldn’t quite put our finger on. As we trekked across Barcelona, hoping from venue to venue, we were buzzing at the thought of our big day. Just when we thought things couldn’t get any more exciting, we arrived at This Must Be The Place. Approach from a winding road off the beaten track, everything suddenly came into view and our jaws dropped. The word wedding ‘venue’ simply doesn’t do it justice. The beautiful reclaimed barn with its timeless renovations provide a brilliant mix of old and new.
Walking around the property we were taken aback by the incredible views, the attention to detail (beautiful mirror balls spotted in multiple locations) and the big spaces giving multiple options on layouts. We opted for an outside ceremony and dinner, moving inside the converted barn for dancing afterwards. It made for the perfect transition as the day progressed. Having family stay on site worked perfectly too. Each bedroom has kept its original features whilst bringing a premium look and feel.
Now this is all well and good but there is one thing that truly made it so special…Jo and Duncan. They own, run and live at the property and have poured their hearts and souls into making it what it is today. Their passion, creativity and genuine love for our big day made all the difference. As a same sex couple, we can sometimes be reserved in opening up, but Jo and Duncan made us completely at ease and even entertained our specialist guest (Drag Queen A’Whora) whilst the guests gathered for our big finale.
We knew straight away that we had to get married here. We left our first viewing saying to ourselves ‘this must be it, this must be the one…This Must Be The Place!’

Jo and Duncan (and Indy!) are magical people who gave us a wedding that so many people will never forget, and a start to our married life that we will remember and treasure forever. We are so glad we found this place and these people.
TMBTP is a truly unique and wonderful place but they have created much more than just a 'place' - it is most definitely a vibe.
Our day was planned to down to the minute (Jack is a global projects director so there was no chance it wouldn't be!), but it still surprised us and surpassed all expectations! We were looking for European beach weddings and focussed on venues in Barcelona. TMBTP came up and was obviously very different. It was better. We started with a video call with Jo in September last year and she showed us round the masia. We fell in love with the views, the atmosphere and the sheer style of the place. We lived in East London for years and this place oozes that same cool and possibility - the fact that you have this chic but blank canvas and different spaces that they absolutely encourage you to use and make your own for your special day is something quite rare in a wedding venue too. If you are looking for something truly unique and 'you', this must be your place!
The various suppliers that they have available to recommend and who are full of fantastic ideas and flexibility are also a dream when you are planning a destination wedding. And we cannot speak highly enough of Sílvia and Yvette at Caravan Made - they are brilliant at what they do; their food is fantastic, their attention to detail is great and their staff are wonderful, friendly and run a very smooth operation - all vital ingredients for your wedding day.
The fact that you are effectively welcomed into Duncan and Jo's home as part of your wedding is something quite special too; they are on hand to help make your planning and actual day as smooth as possible and we are sure that is made so much easier because they care and love what they do.
Thank you for giving us such a fantastic wedding, we will always be grateful.

5 stars isn’t enough for this amazing venue!! Started with a video call with Jo during COVID and we never looked back since. From seeing it for the first time back in November we knew it would perfect. Duncan and Jo are brilliant and have done such an amazing job with this venue. Also super helpful with any questions leading up to the wedding and during the day itself. It all flowed so smoothly and all the different areas all have their own magical spark to make the venue truly one of a kind. Even when we thought it was going to rain on the day and a marquee had to get put up, it was still perfect, probably even better. Jo and Duncan always have a plan B which is just as good as a plan A. All the accommodation is lovely and got great little touches throughout and can accommodate a small group of friends/family. All our guests were blown away and have not stopped raving about it since, we wish we could do it all again!!!
All our love,
Niall & Lydia
This Must Be The Place was where our dreams came true. We couldn’t have asked for more for a venue: stunning setting, easily accessible from Barcelona, and importantly, the best couple we could have asked for were running it, Jo and Duncan. We had our wedding ceremony on the paddock, so when we got married on a clear day in June our guests looked out beyond us to the beautiful Pyrenees and the stunning landscape between Mas Casamitjana and the mountains on the horizon. Our caterers set up food stalls and we had a buffet-style meal, and then had our party downstairs in the dance floor area. Jo and Duncan went above and beyond to make sure everyone felt right at home and the event ran as smoothly as possible. The next day, we invited our guests back for a brunch which was the perfect ending to our wonderful weekend. We are so pleased that This Must Be The Place will always be special to us, and can’t wait to visit again in the future.

We just can’t thank Jo, Duncan and Indy enough for welcoming us into their beautiful home, This Must Be The Place to celebrate our wedding on 2nd July 2022. We found the venue online and booked after having one video call with Jo. We knew straight away the venue and the owners were right for us.
Seeing the place for the first time is a truly special moment. The hills roll for miles, the house and grounds are beautifully maintained with brilliant plants and flowers all year round. The house is superbly designed, a heady mix of rustic quirky while sympathetic to its surroundings! The house and the people just belong there! The air is clean, the only noise is nature and it smells divine. It really takes some imagination and creativity to make a place so special!
Jo and Duncan are great people, super helpful and good fun. They have laid back personalities but always seem to have their sleeves rolled up doing something! They made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. They were always on hand to help but also allowed us space to enjoy our stay with them. You can tell they absolutely love what they do. They get really involved with the build up and on the day they’re around like helpful friends!
The actual day of the wedding went on like a dream. We were just blown away watching and feeling it all unfold and finally coming together so seamlessly and perfectly. Our guests absolutely loved it and have been full of compliments on how special it was. The energy was incredible.
We are so happy we found This Must Be The Place. Our time there will always hold a special place in our hearts. We couldn’t recommend the venue and Jo and Duncan enough. It was just perfect!
The first time we (virtually) laid eyes on This Must Be The Place, we knew it was everything we could ever dream of and more. We originally hadn’t considered having a destination wedding but not a single venue even came close and we couldn’t stop thinking about those views, so I guess from that moment we both knew that it truly was THE place.
From our first FaceTime with Jo & Duncan we knew we were in good hands, despite being in a different country and not stepping foot in our wedding venue until literally the day before our big day, at no point did it feel like a risk. They were so helpful every step of the way and we’re so grateful for Jo, Duncan and Jane their wonderful coordinator for helping make our day as special and ‘us’ as it was.
We knew TMBTP was special but no words can describe how incredible it is in the flesh, it surpassed our expectations and our entire day was a complete dream come true. As we approached the venue for the very first time we were both genuinely lost for words. Stunning views, attention to detail and filled to the brim with personality, plus to make things even better, the loveliest team that we couldn’t have done this without.
We’ve had so many of our guests tell us it was the best wedding they’ve been to, and we think that compliment is all down to how amazing TMBTP is! We feel so privileged to have tied the knot in such a beautiful place and over the moon that we took the leap.
Big love to Jo, Duncan, Jane and of course Indy (who assisted in glittering up our guests on the night time), we can’t thank you all enough!

We booked TMBTP during COVID travel restrictions after a FaceTime round the property. May seem crazy to some - booking without seeing the venue in person- but Jo & Duncan have truly put together the most epic venue with so many thoughtful details that we thought it was crazy not to book. They were so approachable and warm from the start and we felt so supported throughout the planning process; they were always calm and generous with their emails/ our questions which removed any stress making the planning genuinely enjoyable (we were booking from London with a lot of international guests travelling to Moia). The venue and views are of course unparalleled, and there are so many ways to customise your day so every wedding there feels unique. Evidenced by Jo&Duncan referring to different layouts configured by the names of couples themselves. A truly warm gesture.
On the day itself, our guests had the best time and the words “WOW” “this is the nicest wedding venue I’ve ever been to” were shared throughout the festivities. We had a mix of rain, mist, cloud, full sunshine and a beautiful sunset - and every change in weather was equally beautiful. TMBTP is beyond special and we are so grateful to Jo&Duncan for their kindness, generosity, and impeccable taste that made our wedding so so special. As I’m sure everyone says: this really IS the place.
10 year wedding anniversary reunion perhaps….? ;)
With much love!

This truly IS the place! This Must be the Place is the perfect mixture of rustic, quirky, cool and glamorous. An absolute gem hidden in the hills of Catalonia. We booked the venue sight unseen as we felt such a wonderful vibe from Duncan & Jo. We were not to be let down when we arrived the day before the wedding. Pictures cannot possibly do the venue justice. It is perfection. Duncan & Jo are incredible and the local vendors are a dream to work with. It really was the best day of our lives and we could not feel more fortunate about where we decided to hold such a special and memorable occasion. Everything was seamless from start to finish and the recommended suppliers blew us away! Our guests wanted for nothing and the standard of accommodation and design is top class. We wouldn’t change anything for the world! The venue, the owners and the views make this place something extremely special. We cannot thank Duncan & Jo enough!
Danielle and Will
It was everything we hoped for - you have to see the place in person to appreciate how beautiful it is. We live on the east coast of the US and wanted to do something different for our wedding, and found Catalonia to be a perfect destination - great food, beautiful scenery, lovely people, and very affordable by US standards. The venue has multiple great locations to hold the ceremony and a beautiful indoor space for the bar and dancing. Overall we had a wonderful experience with this venue and the lovely owners, and would recommend it to anyone! It was an unforgettable weekend!
