What does Aitona mean?
Aitona means grandfather in Basque.
This is my little homage to all the grandparents who have lived through much harder times than ours, suffering from war, hunger and poverty. They gave everything for their families, for giving their children studies, for bringing home their bread, for offering them, in short, a less complicated future.
To you, dear Grandpa Pepe, who made my dream come true. You put without knowing it, the first stone of Masia Aitona. We came from Pamplona in 2000, and after living on the coast for a few years, we found this beautiful place, not far from the capital. Thanks to your effort and your generosity, little by little, we were able to make our dream of living in the country come true, surrounded by nature, in a privileged place like the Plá de Les Useres. A beautiful valley overlooking the second peak of the Valencian Community, the Penyagolosa. Vineyards, olive groves, almond tree fields, delimited by dry stone terraces and gentle hills form a landscape reminiscent of Italian Tuscany. Masia Aitona found its place at the end of 2009.
It took 5 more years to complete the dream. In 2015, the plans and licenses on paper became walls, floors and foundations. It was not easy, anyone who has gone through the construction of a house knows that it is a tortuous path, but the desire and the dream to fulfill were our allies. Masia Aitona was inaugurated in June 2015 and since then it has maintained its essence, it was and still is a meeting place, a house to share talks, paellas and good wines under the stars.
Thank you, Grandpa Pepe! Wherever you are, at Masia Aitona we continue to celebrate life in your honour.
