About Charles Van Den Berg

Alex and Charles are a Dutch couple who moved to Olivella in 1986. Charles is a local businessman and Alex is the owner of one of Sitges' most respected estate agencies.

Since moving to the property we have extended and modified the house to create a family home that blends perfectly the comforts of modern luxurious living with that of the surrounding natural environment. It is indeed a truly idyllic villa!

Charles Van Den Berg purchased this villa in 2006

Why Charles Van Den Berg chose Garraf - Costa Dorada

The plot is 2,500 sq meters and there are no immediate neighbours as we also own the adjoining plot. The house offers far reaching and unrestricted views over the hills towards the sea and the sunrises and sunsets are quite spectacular.

We bought the house because of the space and tranquility it offers, yet it is only a 15 minute drive into Sitges or any of the other surrounding towns. So we have the best of both worlds...the country life and the urban life!

What makes this villa unique

As the climate in northern Spain is so delightful all year round, we created a home that affords us as much comfort and enjoyment both indoors and out.

We like to entertain with friends and family and the gardens provide a great playground for the children...they can hide in the tree house, jump up and down on the trampoline, play football, hide and seek or just splash around in the pool.

Meanwhile, we can enjoy adult fun in our chill out zone...we built a covered outdoor lounge, with comfy seating, a full kitchen, bar and eating area...perfect to relax after a long day or even after a short day!

We hope that our guests will enjoy our house as much as we do and our property manager will be on hand to deal with any eventualities should they arise during the rental period.

Have a great holiday,

Kind regards

Alex and Charles

Fantastic holiday and amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa in gorgeous surroundings, excellent for large families and groups. Fitted out with all mod cons and the owners are extremely professional. The recommended drivers were punctual and delivered excellent service therefore easy to get into Barcelona or Sitges whilst being secluded. We had an excellent holiday and if you need anything during your stay the owners are easy to reach and reply immediately. Highly recommended.

Fantastic property and an amazing stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property, we had an amazing time and this villa is perfect for families and large groups. The owners are wonderful and extremely professional. They recommended local drivers who were also excellent and punctual. Great location as very secluded however only 20 minutes from Sitges and 50 minutes from Barcelona if you need to be out and about or if you prefer lounging around the pool area its perfect for this also. There are caterers you can hire to cook your meals alternatively you can use the villas amazing facilities which are all equipped with all modern appliances.

There were a couple of things we needed done whilst we were there and one email to the owners and they were all sorted. Excellent service.

AMAZING week in a lovely villa and area, highly recommended!!

Thank you.

Fantastic house super place to celebrate a party!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house, the perfect place to celebrate a anniversary!

Last summer (2015) we celebrated my 50th birthday party with a large group of friends and we had a great time in Villa Palmera.

In a few words an amazing beautiful property. We were more than happy with the high standards of the villa and fantastic outdoor space with its large pool and garden. We spend many hours at the pool area and covered terrace with bar. The villa is stylishly decorated and has all you need. The manager was more than accommodating and attentive to any needs we had.

For two evenings we arranged a chef and one evening we had catering. Great quality food, delicious and surprising. The people involved very helpful and friendly, all the wishes we had were fulfilled! They prepared the biggest and most beautiful birthday cake ever!

I would happily recommend this villa and we all would love to stay again.

For sure we are coming back.

Anita and friends.

excellent location for a family or friends holiday

  • 4 of 5

description of the property was accurate except for the air-conditioning system that was unexpectedly timed (works only from 6PM till 7AM) and the stairs that leads to the property that the owner missed to mention.

Property was clean and well maintained.

owner provided good customer service.

I would recommend this property
