Close to the beach and Barcelona but...
The beach isn´t good. The water was dirty both times we went there. Our boys did not like it. We drove 10 min in to platja olimpica by car and stayed there. We where on several beaches during our stay, no one with this dirt. The apartment is in a typical rural area with no tourists. There is one restaurent at the railway tracks, and a few very local, simple cafes with tapas ish food around.
The apartment was ok but nothing more. Rooms ok, bath fine. Kitchen was simple. Missing some equipment. I like more glasses and plates in same colours. This was pieces from years ago.
Hard to find parking at the evening without going a bit. Supermarket 50 m, with bakery, pharmacy and more.
Long promenade to walk or run along the beach and to neighbour cities.
I have to mention the annoying church bell. Ringing every 15 min trough all the hours day and night. And double ringing at the top of the hour. Impressive.
No internet in the apartment but one of the bars close to will give you the wifi code so you can sit there. The tv is small with a lot of channels.
If you want to stay outside, but close to Barcelona this is a ok apartment but i´m not sure if i would recommend it.
The owner of the apartment mr Oliveiras was very trustful and helpful. We had to leave early so the deposit was given back to us by transfer in the bank. No problem.
Owner's Response: The state of dirt on the beach, has been due to strong storms that occurred in mid-July, which caused them to be thrown to the beach large number of objects floating in the sea, in addition to removing the sand. Elapsed few days after the storms the beach returns to its normal state. Mongat Beach is a beach, like the other beaches of the Costa Maresme. A storm was so intense that made a sailboat aground five meters in length, which was stranded in the sand of the beach, in front of the train station.
With regard to the church bell, is the bell of a clock, that strikes the hours and quarters, as in other places (Barcelona, London etc..). The kitchen has dishes and glasses green for more than four people, and other kitchen utensils.
