About Joachim and Marcela

We have been living for a long time in Castelldefels and simply love it.If you wish, we can take you to intersting places not included in a regular tourist guide.

This place offers wonderful attractions, The chiringuitos ( beach bars ) in the summer offer a variety of entertainment , concerts , yoga , workshops ... but from October to April is a very special atmosphere here . The Mediterranean gets wilder , the surfers and kiters are back , and at this long beach everyone will find what he seeks

Joachim and Marcela purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Joachim and Marcela chose Castelldefels

Our house is situated high in the valley ( about 100 m above sea level ) and has wonderful views of the Mediterranean .

Your apartment has a seaview from the living / dining room , the kitchen and from o the 70 sqm terrace .

You have several public transportation options to go to Barcelona or to visit other parts of Catalonia . We live close to the Penedes wine region , famous for its sparkling wines ( Freixenet and Codorniu).Tarragona with its Roman excavations ist just 100 km away, the Costa Brava including the famous Dali Museum in Figueres is 150 km away . A trip to the Pyrenees is always worthwhile. but you can also go for a hike directly behind , with hills achieving 500 m altitude.

What makes this apartment unique

Your benefits are : beautiful apartment in a pleasant, quiet and casual atmosphere but close to a large city, great climate , good access to public transportation, possibility of short trips and several sport activities.

Fantastic location for your Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 wonderful days in Castelldefels. Joachim was a wonderful host who was able to give us the inside track and local knowledge on sightseeing, restaurants and events taking place locally. We were able to relax in this beautiful apartment, by the pool and on the terrace and there was so much to see and do. We toured the city of Barcelona, Monserrat and Sitges as well as visiting some beautiful restaurants. There was something for all of our family and we really enjoyed our visit and would have no hesitation in recommending this property for anyone looking to relax (the pool & beach are beautiful) take in the sights, walking, running and cycling or to have a nice meal. The local transport links are great with buses and trains close by. Joachim and Marcella were very attentive to any requests (and make their own beautiful cava!!) In summary we had a lovely time and will no doubt return sometime in the future.

The owner was helpful with advice for getting about in the area and can also provide you with good value wine. I would be able to recommend the place to my friends. Maybe unsuitable for people with impaired mobility.

Fantastisk ophold med flot udsigt

  • 5 of 5

Fantastiske værter, der gerne hjalp med ideer til udflugter og transport muligheder til Barcelona eller stranden....tilbud om afhentning fra Lufthavn og køleskabet fyldt op gjorde det til et dejligt ophold. Messi bor på vejen bagved huset og værtsparret viste gerne vej...værten er en fantastisk kok og laver gerne mad til gæsterne og poolen er aldrig lukket modsat et hotel...så de bedste anbefalinger fra den lille familie fra Hjørring
