Favorite part of our trip

  • 5 of 5

John and Joan simply know how to take care of people and their insight into the town of Sitges can enrich anyone's trip incredibly. The amenities such as beach towels, buckets, chairs, and boogey boards for our kids were really helpful. We rented the cottage at the beginning of our trip and went back to the B&B for the last leg of our trip. Their breakfast/brunch was an absolute delicious feast. The location is fantastic with close proximity to the beach and the city center. They helped map out the best places to shop, eat, and explore in Sitges and assisted us with our trip to Barcelona! I highly recommend staying with Joan and John in any of their properties. Their properties are comfortable and inviting. Our stay in Sitges was our favorite and most memorable part of our European vacation!!! We will return there and will specifically stay with Joan and John (if they have an opening)!!!

Lovely cottage, Perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This was our favorite stay during our recent vacation to Europe! Joan and John are simply wonderful hosts who make you feel instantly at home. Since it was our honeymoon, Joan greeted us with a free bottle of Cava. Throughout our stay, Joan and John provided insightful, spot-on suggestions about what to do in Sitges (including the best restaurants, a nice hike to a nearby town, and the best place to watch the Barca Game). On our last day, Joan allowed us to help ourselves to the wonderful breakfast spread she makes each morning and made us cafe con leche and espressos. Their warm welcome, friendliness, and knowledge of the town undeniably contributed to our fun stay in Sitges!

The cottage itself is a bit older, but has many thoughtful additions for guests such as beach towels, soaps/shampoo/conditioner, mini fridge, etc. I found it to be very cozy and comfortable. It also has a darling yard that is shared with Joan and John's bed and breakfast. We enjoyed playing ping pong and eating outside most days. Best of all, it's in a great location; a brief walk to the beach, train station, food market, and many bars/restaurants all for a very reasonable price.

In summary, we would love to return someday and I highly, highly recommend staying at this location if you find yourself in Sitges!

It was just a pleasure to stay at this cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We felt very welcome from the first moment we arrived. Joan and John are just the perfect hosts! The cottage is not big, but so neat! And there are plenty of opportunities to stay outside. The cottage is do close to the beach, the city of Sitges and lots if restaurants, just perfect with kids.

Our daughter felt like Joan is her "Oma", which is German for Grandma...think this saysbit all. Would love to come back!

Lovely cottage great position in heart of Sitges

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Beach Cottage. It has an ideal position just 5 mins from beach and all the shops, bars and restaurants. The cottage has everything you need for self catering and we had some lovely meals on the sunny terrace. Joan and John were fantastic hosts and couldn't have been more welcoming and are great fun. They are very helpful and full of tips for best places to eat at a good price. All were spot on and we were so impressed with the quality of restaurants and great value in Sitges. Highly recommend this cottage if you like staying somewhere with character and a warm welcome.

A welcoming place for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of four enjoyed a lovely holiday in Sitges at the beach cottage. It was just the right size for us. There is a very nice patio and a pool table so we really spent almost all of our time outside. Joan and John are delightful people and Joan spent some time with us on our first day with the town map reviewing all the best restaurants. We felt so lucky to have a personal perspective an her reviews were spot on. We ate really well. They also keep beach toys and chairs so everything was there to allow us to have a perfect beach vacation. If you are looking for privacy with the option of as much advice as you'd like from delightful B&B professionals, you have found your place!

home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I have just spent 5 wonderful days with my friends with john and joan gallagher as the other reviews state their hospitality and helpfulness was second to none.They provided us with beach towels,umbrellas and sunbeds.They even gave us suncream and insect repellant if needed.They booked taxis restaurants. They provided advice on where to eat and what to see. The home cooking was superb. Location was excellent 2 mins from beach shops and restaurants. All we had to do was enjoy ourselves.Thank you Joan and John I will definitely return. Anne O Brien, Castlebar.

Sitges itself is a mere 30 minute car or train journey to the popular historic city of Tarragona and 20 minutes to Barcelona. It is also very close the centre of the Cava industry in Vilafranca. The Penedes Wine Region is also a short drive away. Cordoniu, the famous Cava making family, offer free tours in English every day .And the well known Benedictine Monastery, Montserrat is a wonderful day trip. There are several way-marked routes through the Garraf and through the Wine regions. Port Aventura Theme Park is a 50 mins drive.
