GREAT PLACE, RELAXING HOLIDAYS
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
My 3 bedroom and 2 bath Villa is located in Olivella, 12 miles from Casteldefells, 22 miles from Barcelona Airport and 28 miles from Barcelona (so the city is perfect for a day-trip)
Just a 15 minute ( 8 miles ) drive takes you to the cosmopolitan seaside town of Sitges where you and your family can walk the 3km promenade and enjoy the 17 sandy beaches, lively bars and restaurants.
My house has three bedrooms, the master one with a double bed, second double bedroom with double bed & the individual room with a single bed. In the master room there is a bath with a shower, on the floor where the other two rooms are located, there is another bathroom with a bathtube. You'll have clean sheets on all beds, and clean towels.
Living room has two very comfortable sofas, a table for 6 persons and a chimney.
The kitchen is spacious and very comfortable, with all household appliances including a dishwasher, coffee maker, fridge and freezer, washmachine, oven etc.
The pool is located on the sunny side and it´s sizes are 4 m x 8 m x (1,10 m to 1,90 m )
EL GARRAF and OLIVELLA
El Garraf is a small area near to Barcelona but far from city rush. Canyelles and OLIVELLA are small inland towns located in Garraf Area. In the middle of the area, San Pedro de Ribas also offers many possibilities of rural tourism.
OLIVELLA, where our house is located, is on the north of the area, in the midst of El Garraf Park, with its own beautiful landscape.
Before arriving to Olivella, by the BV-2111, you will come across with a typical Catalan farmhouse Can Suriol, surrounded with other farmhouses, some of the news ones are from 18th century.
The old city center of Olivella is not that big and starts by Placa Mayor where Town Hall and Tourist Information Center are located. Castell Vell ( 10th Century), Vella Church ( 13th Century ), Parish Church Sant Pere I Sant Feliu ( 14th century ) are some historical places to visit.
During your stay you can also visit the lovely shops in our beautiful downtown area Castelldefels and be sure to enjoy lunch and dinner in the finest restaurants at Paseo Maritimo
There are many small supermarkets in Castelldefels but the best place for grocery shopping is on Passeo Ferrocarril where you can find all grocery shops near to each other with available parking places. There you can find Carrefour, Caprabo and Lidl.
At the end of Passeo Ferrocarril crossing with Avda. Canal Olimpic, there is a big Shopping Mall ( ANEC BLAU ) where you will find MERCADONA ( my favorite grocery store; economic and all fresh )as well as other shops such as Zara, Massimo Dutti, Mango etc.
My favorite ones are:
Mar Blanc: At Casteldefells Seaside, fish specialities, price pp: 50eur
La Pampa/El Elefante/El Sitio: Braserie Restaurans, Meat Specialities, price pp: 40/50eur
Restaurante Txalaca; Paseo Maritimo, Basque Restaurant (Very GOOD !! ) price pp : 50/60eur

We were met by Marcelo & Tadeo in Castelldelfels (which is only 15 mins from Barcelona airport which is great), and followed them by car to the villa. The road to the villa takes about 20mins up and 15 mins back down. The road itself is steep and very tight at parts, some blind hair pin bends! We only had a Fiat Panda and it did struggle at parts. Once there the trip was worth it. Marcelo and Tadeo showed us around the villa and pointed out all the stuff we needed to know and left phone numbers in case we had to contact them for any reason.The villa is very spacious and the pool is very good. The deep end is over 6' so you need to be careful if you have young children. There are sun loungers and 2 hammocks in the garden overlooking the pool. Marcelo cleans the pool every 2 days.
The villa has all the utensils you need if you are cooking. There is also a gas bbq and a large outdoor table for eating alfresco.
There was only 1 fan in the main bedroom and could do with the other 2 bedrooms having one. I think this might be getting sorted as they did ask what could be improved and I mentioned this.
I would recommend if it is later on in the day when you arrive to stop a Lidl or a supermarket to stock up on drinks and food as there is nothing close to the villa e.g shops or bars, before you are taken up by Marcelo. There was a sign for one restaurant but it was closed the day we tried to go. If you are looking for a lively place close to where you stay then this might not be for you unless you drive or get a taxi, not sure how much that would be though.
we did get a few bites at night so would recommend spraying yourself with some anti mosquito spray.
The surroundings are very quiet and are perfect if you just want a relaxing holiday.
Castelldefels is a large town and has plenty of shops bars and restaurants and great beaches. Parking can be a problem Friday night and the weekends as the Spanish seem to descend on the town and gets very busy. I would say it isn't a tourist town and mainly geared for the Spanish. Sitges which is close by is also worth a visit.
Guelsah the owner is very prompt at returning any email questions you need answered and is very helpful.
It makes us also very happy to hear that our guests have relaxed during their holidays in our villa. We will try to modify and upgrade the points you have mentioned. Thanks for staying with us!
