care-taker on site (English speaking )
We arrived to Francoise the 'caretaker' who was excellent right from the word go. he helped us with some trouble with the taxi and then continued to show us around the villa. He sorted out child gates and cot/high chair ready for us. We realised we'd forgotten a potty for a little boy and he went out and bought us one! The villa is in excellent condition, sharp knives, very comfy beds and handsoap/showergel in every bathroom. There were loads of towels to use too. Washing facilities included a washing machine and tumbledryer and a dishwasher all with the appropriate washing powders available. The location of the villa gives a wonderful view of the area and is a nice place to explore however the map on this webpage gives the incorrect position (ithin the town). It is infact up on the hill a good miles walk to sitges and a hard walk back with kids but there is a bus that takes you to the edge of the estate. There is a lovely kids playarea in the estate too. Overall a beautiful villa with exceptional service from Francoise and Christian and I highly recommend it. Thank you for a lovely stay.
We were 4 families which spend 14 days in this beautiful villa! The pool area was just perfect!! We did not miss a thing either outside or inside. The place was nice and clean. Christian was very helpful and service minded. We would recomend this place to friends and relatives. The property is located just outside the center of Sitges, so it is best to rent a car during the stay. There is a very nice Thai restaurant nearby (only 2 minutes walking distance from the house).
We were four families with 8 children spending two weeks in this lovely villa.
Our kids were in heaven when they say the pool area and playground. We spent more days at the pool than on the beach.... Sitges is bigger than we thought, so a car is highly recommended. The villa is in a residential area outside the city center.
The villa was lovely, nice and clean. Christian was very helpful and provided excellent service, as did the cleaning staff.
We had lunch at Cinnamon on several occasions, a restaurant a short walk from the villa. Great place and good food.
For a group of families with kids, this villa is highly recommended.
There were 10 of us (4 kids ages 2 to 7 and 6 adults 35 to 84 years old) and the house had something for everyone. There is a great lower yard with a swing set and table tennis that kept the kids (and adults) busy when we were not in the pool. The pool has a nice ledge for the small kids and is deep enough for diving at the other end. Plenty of lounge chairs and a nice upper area to read on the bench swing. The sauna outside is brand new.
Cinnamon is a good restaurant around the corner serving a mix of Thai/Indian/Asian food.
Since we had a 2 year old, Francois, the caretaker, provided a high chair and a gate for the stairs. He was always there and anticipated our needs. The house was extremely clean and had everything we needed. The owner, Christian, was very responsive as well, replying to our questions quickly.
Be sure you have good directions when you arrive the first time because you can miss the entrance to Valpineda if it is dark.
The villa being close enough to town and the train made it the perfect location for seeing the awesome sights of Barcelona, the picturesque town of Sitges, and all of the surrounding areas. We would definitely come back.
4 families had 2 fantastic weeks in a beautiful villa. Large pool with lovely garden area. Great for kids with pool for both small and large children. Nice lounge space outside the living room, with the possibility of table tennis and playground in the level below. Slightly challenging with many levels (back garden, kitchen / living room and table tennis / playground area) for the smallest children, but it worked for us.
Inside there is a high quality stone flooring and parquet floors. Nice flat screen TV / stereo and wireless internet throughout the house. The interior is a combination of fine old furniture, IKEA and upscale bathrooms. Total 3 Jacuzzis, an outdoor and 2 indoor, and a great big steam shower. Walk to the center of Sitges, walking time approx 20 min. We rented cars and there was no problem and find parking at the beach. The train went to Barcelona every 20 minutes. Incredibly good service from the caretaker, speaks good English. Nice clean house when we arrived, a new cleaning with fresh bedding after a week.
We were a group of ten staying in the villa for 14 days in July 2011. The group consisted of two families; 7 "children" ranging from 5 yrs - 21 yrs, and 3 adults.
We had high expectations, and they were exceeded when we arrived. First: The house is beatifully decorated, with a mix of antique furniture and IKEA - giving the house charm. Second: It is well-equipped, from kitchen appliances, plenty of towels, washing machine, different board games, ice-cube machine, bar, etc.. Third: the outdoor area was excellent (the pictures in the ad do not do it justice). There is a large lounge area outside the living room that we used for relaxing in the morning and evening - downstairs outside there was a table tennis board, bowling, and other games. On the backside there was a nice patio with dining table and chairs where we had our dinners and relaxed in the shadow during the day. The pool was large and deep (2.5 meters), and one part of it was shallow - perfect for babies and smaller children. The garden was large and in two levels giving us plenty of space, and giving the children possibiliy to jump into the pool from a height :-). The important thing for us was that the house and outdoor area satisfied the needs of everybody, taken into consideration that there was a large spread in age of the children.
We were well taken care of by the housekeeper Francois, he provided excellent service, helped us with everything we needed. Towels were changed twice a week (there were plenty, both for bathrooms and pool), the house was cleaned after a week, the bbq was cleaned after use and the pool was cleaned every day.
We walked to the city centre of Sitges and the beach - and it took us around 30 - 40 minutes. We chose the house as it was one of the closest to the city centre. We always took a taxi home, and it cost around 7 - 8 euros.
Neighbourhood is nice and quiet. There is a supermarket - Mercadona - and a market just next to the train station where you will find everything you need. There are trains to Barcelona all the time.
We highly recommend the property - we had 14 days in our own paradise. We would love to go back.
