FANTASTIC !!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the third time within a year that we had the pleasure of staying in this great apartment. We love the large terrasses , the views to the sea and the hills, and its location: close to the beach and to the bus to Barcelona.
The apartment is well-equipped with everything you could possible need, incl. an espressomachine and an umbrella for the beach. Tahiche and Clara are great and caring hosts. When we arrived, we were greated with a huge smile, a bottle of wine and a tray of Claras fantastic cup cakes. When the electricity went out Easter Sunday, Tahiche came 5 minutes after we called and had the power fixed by the time we came back from our trip.
We are already looking very much forward to coming back in July. Thanks so much, Tahiche and Clara!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. We are glad you enjoy our apartment so much you keep coming. We feel we live in a privileged place and love to share it. We are definitely looking forward to your next visit. Though there are no Barça games during the summer, Clara´s cupcakes will be waiting for you ;-)

We finally bought a very nice new kettle to replace the faulty one. We are very glad with our insurance response. They reacted so quickly that the electricity problem was sorted out in no time, despite being a holiday.

Say hi to all the family,
Clara and Tahiche

SUN, SEA AND SIGHTSEEING. JUST GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a super 11 night stay in this lovely duplex apartment. The Mediterranean was just around the corner for our evening dips following our very active days out. Having hired a car it was great to have allocated undercover parking. Barcelona city centre is within a 20 minute drive as was the the town of Sitges, The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone looking to couple sightseeing along with seaside relaxation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are happy you had a wonderful stay.
We feel that a car is not really necessary if you only want to visit Barcelona and Sitges. There are good bus and train connections from the house to both places. However, a rented car might prove a good idea if you are many travelling together or if you want to explore many other interesting places around. You will definitely save a bit of time and will have more flexibility, and it is very easy to drive around Castelldefels. Just let us know what your interests are and we will recommend you places to visit.

FANTASTIC APARTMENT! LOOKING FORWARD TO RETURN :-)

  • 5 of 5
We totally agree with the previous reviewers!This is a fanastic holiday rental - and we have already booked to return this summer.

We loved to have breakfast on the sunny terrasse off the kitchen (the new espresso machine was a great treat!) and to relax in the upstairs lounge in the evening.

We cannot wait to return !

Owner's Response: We are happy to learn that you enjoyed your stay and also the espresso machine! We like to listen to our guests for ideas that help us improve your days at our place. That is one example of things we have added recently and we have a few more in mind for the summer season. We look forward to your next visit then.

ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with our two children in this luxury apartment for 10 days in late August 2012 and were absolutely delighted.
The apartment in Castelldefels is close to the beach (two blocks away) in a quiet area, very spacious, modern, absolutely clean and in very good condition. Situated on top of a apartment house it is split in two levels and offers great views over the sea and the mountains around.
There was a outstanding service. We were welcomed with selfmade muffins and a bottle of red wine. Two sets of towels were provided, one set for the beach. An extra cleaning was arranged in the middle of our stay. Also supplies like toilet paper were provided. We found the landlords very reliable, trustworthy and hospitable.
There are two bus connections to Barcelona just around the corner, each departing every 20 minutes. It takes approx. 35 minutes to Plaza Espagna and further 10 minutes to Plaza Catalunya. In opposite direction different shops and supermarkets can be reached within two stops.
The apartment offers one big bedroom for the parents and two seperate bedrooms for the children. Also, the children have their own bathroom. The parents bathroom is accessable through their bedroom. The bath is very stylish with a big tub and a great view towards the sea, great for relaxing.
We found the kitchen well equipped with everything that is needed for breakfast and cooking. The fridge is huge and supplies like tablets for the dish washer or aluminium foil were there. There is a dining table in the kitchen and a big table outside on the balcony. We used the balcony a lot for breakfast and dinner, and found the big umbrella very helpfull.
The split level apartment offers a big living room on top together with a big balcony towards the sea. The flatscreen TV is equipped with SAT receiver which made our children happy. The big balcony offers a great view together with two sunbeds and two folding chairs. Also there is brick-built grill for barbecue. The balcony on top is connected with the lower balcony via outside stairs.
Through one children bedroom there is access to a small balcony which leads to a washroom that we found very helpful with a washing machine and a dryer inside. Also a drying rack and a ironing board can be used.
The apartment offered us the ideal base for a combination of sightseeing in Barcelona and relaxed beach holiday together with our children. We absolutely recommend this place and are looking forward to go there for a second time

Car: not necessary

Castelldefels is a coastal town lying by a 12 km long sandy beach with an average of nearly 300 sunny days a year. Barcelona city center is only 20 km away and you can easily get there by bus, train or car via C-31 or C-32 highways.

The house is located at a 2 minute walk from the beach of Castelldefels and at 20 minutes drive from Barcelona. Buses pass every 20 min. by next corner bus stop.

From the town train station you can get to Barcelona city center in 25 minutes and to the picturesque town of Sitges in only 10 minutes.

Tennis academies Sánchez Casal and Bruguera are only at a few km drive.

A few minutes walk from the house there are many restaurants, beach lounges and places to have a drink, though none is as close as to produce any disturbing noise. In fact the area is very quiet.

On the promenade you can walk, bike or skate and there are several places to rent water sports equipment (sailing, surfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, kite surfing, etc..). There is an inexpensive bike rental shop at walking distance from the house.

In the Olympic Canal Site (used in Barcelona 92 Olympic Games) there is a 9 hole pitch & putt course where they offer golf beginner's courses, apart from rowing, canoeing, water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and archery.

Also very near, you can you can hike, climb or mountain bike in the Garraf Natural Park.

Nature reserves of the Remolar and Ricarda are prepared for bird watching and you can reach them easily by bike, and in the same there is a riding club and several tennis clubs with racquetball, squash, etc..

There are several spa and beauty centers nearby, which also give massages.

At a very short drive, at the Anec Blau shopping center (open even on weekends) you will find many shops, restaurants and cinemas, as well as several supermarkets.

During the summertime there many festivities with fireworks on the beach or over the mountains, sardanas (Catalonian traditional dancing), castellers (human towers up to 6 person-high!), correfocs (fire parades), live music concerts and kids games.

Beach bonfires on 'Verbena de San Juan' around June the 23rd.

Festivities of the Sea around July the 16th.

'Fiesta Mayor' around August the 15th

It is worth visiting the neighboring town of Sitges during their 'Fiesta Mayor', in August, specially the spectacular fireworks over the ocean on the night of August 23rd. The beach gets packed so you must arrive early!

Weather is great all year round. In Spring and Autumn temperature is very comfortable and beach can be enjoyed until almost winter (we have swam in the ocean even in November!) Winters are mild (average temperature around 10ºC) and in the summer, being so close to the shore there is always a cool breeze reducing the heat, rising over 30 degrees only for a few days during the summer.
