The Costa Dorada/Tarragona region
The region we are situated is famous for its beachs. We are between Barcelona and Tarragona, in the Penedès wine zone. We have the Mediterranean climate, with moderate temperatures in winter and sunny summers.
Castellet i la Gornal
Castellet enjoys a privileged geographical location that offers plenty in terms of activities and excursions. The village is just 15km from Vilanova i la Geltrú and its beautiful sandy beaches, 15km from Vilafranca del Penedés - the capital of the wine producing region "el Penedès"-, 20km from Sitges, and 60km from Barcelona.
Castellet has a restaurant and a small store where you can buy wine, honey and marmalade. The village still moves at a different pace. At 12 o'clock the van from the neighbouring town's bakery arrives and honks, and anyone wanting fresh bread comes out to the van and buys it.
The area around Castellet is perfect for beautiful walks, castle visits, hiking, cycling, riding, etc. The natural park Parque Natural del Foix is particularly well known amongst bird watchers, who come here from far flung places to pursue their hobby. The region's main activity revolves around wine growing and everything associated with it. Many of the local wineries and cava producers offer tours and tastings. The neighbouring villages are famous for their traditional Catalan celebrations. During the summer a different village festival takes place almost every weekend, with traditional music, food, Castells (human towers), Gegants (giant puppets worn by people dancing through the streets), Diables (devils that run through the streets setting off firecrackers), etc.
