Good apartment for family

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment in a small Spanish village.

This is the real Spain with nice people and a little tapas bar in the village.

You need a car to stay here. Not so far from the beaches and several towns.

Good mountain areas to go for a walk.

Norwegian/Swedish family on 8 persons.

Wonderful country retreat, very high quality.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house has excellent facilities and is beautifully appointed. Very comfortable. Quim was very helpful in suggesting activities and arranged a wonderful wine tour for our group. The only negative is that the village does not have a restaurant, it is still closed for renovation.

“A perfect spot to begin and end our days of exploring the surrounding countryside.”

  • 5 of 5

Four of us arrived at Ca l'Helena to find this beautiful property attended by our very friendly and helpful host, Quim. We had taken him up on his offer to stock our kitchen with food, water, and coffee for our first day, and found he had provided the perfect assortment of things for us to enjoy, including a bottle of sparkling Cava to celebrate our arrival. Quim was most helpful in answering any of our questions and making suggestions for activities we might enjoy, including two human tower-building events, which were simply amazing.

The house is charming, well-kept, and sturdy. It was well-stocked with kitchen equipment, linens, laundry facility, maps and brochures, and, although we never used it, a t.v. and dvd's.

Castellet is a tiny village, with one restaurant (unfortunately it was closed for remodeling during our stay) and no shops, so a car is probably a necessity when staying at Ca L'Helena. But it's a lovely little town to walk about, with a castle up the hill, and a fish preserve down below. We spent our days exploring Catalonia in every direction and returned most evenings to prepare our dinner and relax on the patio at Ca L'Helena. It was an added bonus to have the swimming pool.

All of us highly recommend Ca L'Helena.

We are between Barcelona and Tarragona, in Mediterranean coast and in the Penedès wine zone. We have the Mediterranean climate, with moderate temperatures in winter and sunny summers.

In this area there are the most important sites and activities forming part of the World Heritage by UNESCO.

The area around Castellet is perfect for beautiful walks, castle visits, hiking, cycling, riding, etc. The region's main activity revolves around wine growing and everything associated with it. Many of the local wineries and cava producers offer tours and tastings.
