WHERE ARE WE?

Masia Piu is surrounded by vineyards, located in the beautiful mountains of the the famous wine area Penedés, Catalunya Spain. It’s situated on a hill 600 meters high and has great views over the valley.

The authentic village Pla de Manlleu is located 90km from Barcelona and takes around an hour to get there. From the village you will arrive at Masia Piu following a 1 km unpaved road. Just follow the signs.

who we are

Masia Piu is run by Daisy, Lars and their 3 children Kioa, Indy and Lani, a creative Dutch family who enjoy living ‘off-grid’ in nature after living in Amsterdam and Barcelona city.

Over the years, we have experienced first-hand the positive connection between young people and the natural world. Nature inspires people to relax, encourages environmental awareness, enhances creativity and enables to learn important countryside living and outdoor leadership skills.

Daisy specializes in arts, crafts, drawing and painting. She loves to work with organic materials found during hikes. She takes care of the ‘veggie garden’ and loves to cook fresh, simple and healthy meals with local products and seasonal vegetables.  She is an intuitive coach and has led many creative workshops. As a profession, she runs a remote design agency and you will find her together with Lars on film sets assisting film crews shooting in the Barcelona area.

As a creative director and online marketeer, Lars is an experienced storyteller and has a special eye for photo and video visuals. Lars is especially interested in living off the grid, architecture, innovation and technology. He is always challenging his creative mind and loves sharing his passions with those around him. He also has a great love for all kinds of sports games and shares his enthusiasm with passion.

Kioa (14) is a socially skilled and talkative boy with 1001 ideas. He is able to work well in a group and can think very well about practical problems.

Indy (11) is a calm and sweet girl with a passion and talent for cooking. Indy can spend hours in silence in the kitchen after which she comes out with a beautifully baked cake.

Lani (9) does somersaults from great heights onto the trampoline as if it’s nothing. She has a very well defined character for her age and enjoys finding adventures with new children.
