Location description from owner

The Catalonia region

Catalonia is a very special and comparatively wealthy area of Spain with some of it's own regional cuisine.There is a lot of interesting history attached to Catalonia and several large towns with Roman origins.The climate is extremely acceptable all year round, with high temperatures and plenty of sun in the summer months.The scenary is varied with the mountains inland and the beaches and sea in contrast.The winemaking area of Penedes is located in Catalonia with it's famous Cava, there are consequently, many vineyards to visit and wines to taste !

Sitges

SITGES, which is on the doorstep, is famous for it's history of artists and non-conformity ! Today this is still in part the case.There are many and varied festivals and activities that take place in Sitges, from a huge carnaval at the start of Lent, to historic car runs, firework displays, parades, people 'castle-building' (where a tower is formed from people including the smallest children at the top!) and the flower festival in June when the streets are deorated with patterns of flowers ( Corpus Christi ).This is apart from a wealth of boutique-style shops, a huge selection of restaurants, endless sandy beaches, numerous bars and clubs and beautiful 'modernista' buildings.Sitges was originally a fishing village but has become a fashionable and exclusive resort.Once you have soaked all of this up, there is the excitement of Barcelona only minutes away - the famous city with Gaudi architecture, beautiful buildings, art museums and a plethora of restaurants, bars and clubs.As if this wasn't enough to occupy you, the Roman city of Tarragona is easily accessible by car or train, Puerta Aventura theme and adventure park is easily reached and Aqua Leon water park is even closer by, within 30 minutes drive.

“Gorgeous house - a home from home!”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2016

We stayed at Girasol in June 2016 a new what an absolutely beautiful house it is. It was perfect in every way from its lovely lounge area opening out into the garden, to its 4 decent sized bedrooms and well equipped kitchen. The private plunge pool was great and there was a BBQ which we we enjoyed on more than one occasion. It's location was in a quiet village which overlooked vineyards, so a car is essential although central Sitges in only a couple of miles away. Nearby Cafe Cinnamon does a great curry take away delivered in tiffins, highly recommended! There is a small supermarket nearby but larger ones are accessible by car only 5 mins away. The owner, Jane was most helpful in advance whilst John and Joan who looked after us whilst we were there, were readily available to give us friendly advice and tips about the Sitges area. Barcelona was an easy train ride from Sitges town. Overall it was a superb holiday house for the whole family and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Thank you Carolyn, We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Jane

“Great - just what was needed...”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2013

Cannot think that there could be any better place for allowing us to have a relaxing Easter break. Secluded, very quiet and so relaxing, it was hard to leave the house. We had the doors to the patio open most of the time, and whiled away many a moment in the sun. Had not expected to be so close to Sitges and at the same time able to walk a few hundred yards and be walking next to vines being cultivated for wine, so it felt like staying in the country and at the same time having a beach holiday. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a break and yet be near Barcelona, as Sitges is so close, and we will certainly return.
