"Hola! We are Jo and Duncan – originally from London and with backgrounds in music festivals, record labels and film production. Then along came our beautiful daughter Indy and a ridiculously ambitious plan to uproot ourselves, buy a ‘Masia’ farmhouse in the countryside near Barcelona and transform it into our home and a wedding and events venue. It’s been quite an adventure, but we did it! And now it's your turn! We hope to welcome you to our home for the wedding adventure of your dreams."
Jo & Duncan , Owners, lovers (not fighters)
This Must Be The Place is a jaw-droppingly stunning wedding and events venue near Barcelona in Spain. Centred around the 18th-century ‘Mas Casamitjana’ farmhouse, the rooms, barns, courtyards and gardens have been lovingly restored in a modern rustic style, by the British owners Jo and Duncan, and carefully designed to offer you several unique spaces to celebrate each element of your special day. Oh and the views are to die for, and the sunsets are spectacular!
While most venues in this part of the world offer a ‘plan B’ in case of bad weather (sadly it can also rain in Spain, just not that often and not always on the plain), most people regard this venue’s covered space as part of their plan A. ‘Els Graners’ are 3 large double-height conjoined barns that form an L shape and interconnect through a majestic arch. They open out on 2 sides through large bi-fold doors to connect with the central courtyard (‘El Barri’). With these doors closed it can seat up to 150 people for a wedding banquet, open them up and it expands to over 200. Not that you need to banquet here mind you… there are plenty of other options! You might just want to use this space for dancing under the huge mirrorball.
To one side of these barns you will find a large yard (‘L’Era’) surrounded by plants, flowers and a pretty stone wall. This large space could be used for your ceremony (featuring their cool triangular arch), for canapés and fizz or for a banquet under the stars – you decide. There is also a smaller building called ‘La Caseta del Sol’ (The Sun House) alongside it that could be used as a bar, chill out area or even as a creche.
On another side of the barns you’ll find an outdoor lawned terrace called ‘La Feixa’ – this has amazing views across the rolling Catalan hills with the Pyrenees in the distance and is great spot for a ceremony and/or canapés and fizz.
There is also another large grassy space called ‘El Mirador’ – which does what it says on the tin! Simply stunning views!
The venue also has 4 large ensuite rooms that are included in the rental price (for 2 nights). Named after jazz legends, and located on the ground floor of the main house, each has been stylishly decorated and comfortably furnished. Between them they hold up to 11 people, and there is also a fantastic self-catering breakfast room.
This Must Be The Place has been created by the 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.
