About Erika Holliday
I live in England with my two daughters and our one year old dog. I work for a Charity Company. We have many family and friends in Calella and we fall in love of the town therefore we have been going there for many years.
Erika Holliday purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Erika Holliday chose Calella
The first time we visited our family there we love the town and the location. We feel safe and lucky to be in such small place but unique. We love Calella because of the fantastic facilities in the area such as fruit shop, supermarket, bike rent, tourist information and great range of bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Calella is easily accessible from Barcelona or Girona airports within just over an hour driving distance. The public transport to the town from Barcelona airport is very simple, the journey is a real pleasure, the trains are frequent, air conditioner and provide full information all the way. it goes by the beach so the views are very entertaining. But if you prefer the bus, there is BarcelonaBus in the airport that goes straigh to Calella.
What makes this Apartment unique
The views of the apartment are spectacular in the day and night. It is situated on the 3rd floor of a 7 storage secure private building called 'Las Blanquerias'. The balcony is big enough to have a meal or just being outside admiring the panorama. The pool is Olympic size, 25 meters surrounded by palm trees and beautiful gardens. There is a safeguard, shower, small pool and a play area for children. The apartment is within 3 minutes from the beach, there are bars by the beach called 'chiringuitos', they serve food and drinks. Some offer entertainment like live bands, dance, music, cinema, and lots more in the day and night. There are banana boats, canoeing, cycle boat, inflatable play area and much more. My girls have enjoyed every single summer and they love more and more every year.

Things to do in and around Calella: Waterpark (Waterworld) in Lloret Del Mar This is a full day out for the family (30mins by car or you can arrange transport from most of the larger hotels nearby).
Tossa Del Mar. This town is about 30 minutes north of Calella. There is a great café next to the castle at the top of the hillside overlooking the beach.
Eat at a Chiringuito (beach bar). There are lots of beach bars along the sea front where you can eat seafood or simple options such as burger and pizzas. The cocktails are also good. For a lighter alcoholic drink try the Cava Sangria or Tinto de Verano. During the day there is entertainment for children, at night there is more to do for adults.
Go dancing!!. Most nightclubs in Callela cater for teenagers, adults are better off in the chiringuito (beach bars), “mature" adults go to La Cuadra!
For a short or long break and even off season there is lots to do In Calella like the Silent Spa just opposite the apartment. Barcelona for example, only one hour away is full of surprises while on the other side of Calella, the Botanical Gardens in Blanes is a must to see according to one of our guests. Or how about a ski trip to the Pyrenees in winter or outdoor activities in summer, only 2 hours away by car from Calella!... the choice is yours
