Castelldefels is situated in the Catalonia region of Spain, just to the south of the wonderful city of Barcelona on Spain’s north eastern coast. Best known for its long sandy beach, visitors staying in self catering accommodation in Castelldefels will find this is an excellent area for a holiday for all ages.
For many holidaymakers the two main advantages with staying in Castelldefels self catering accommodation is the great beach, and the proximity to Barcelona. Being this close to Barcelona without being right in the hustle and bustle of the city is perfect, as visitors can easily enjoy the city, but enjoy the beach and the countryside too.
The beach at Castelldefels is its greatest selling point. Stretching for 3 miles (5 km) there’s plenty of sand for everyone! Extending to the west of the town is a large area perfect for wandering by foot or on bike – the Parc Natural de Garraf climbs up hill from the coast and offers great views, wildlife, plantlife, and caves to explore. You can even go rowing on the canal in Castelldefels that was built for the Barcelona Olympics in 1992.
Finally, golfers will enjoy staying in Castelldefels self catering accommodation as there are several excellent golf courses all within a short distance of the town.
The attractive coastal towns and villages invite you to take time out from your Castelldefels apartment or villa and discover the area. More sandy beaches plus small bays are hidden along the coastline and there are lovely old fishing villages and towns too. Sitges is one example that has beautiful streets and buildings, and of course a beautiful beach! Further along the coast is the larger city of Vilanova i la Geltru. Here the shops, restaurants, cafes, and beaches are popular, and so too are the Roman ruins and medieval castle.
Best of all is the proximity of your Castelldefels holiday home to Barcelona. The culture, history, architecture, cuisine, entertainment and more have made this into one of the country’s top tourist destinations and it’s easily accessible by car or by public transport.
Holidaying in self catering accommodation in Castelldefels is popular throughout the year on account of the excellent Mediterranean climate. During the summer you can enjoy the beaches in temperatures in the high 20’s C (low 80’s F). Spring and autumn are mild to warm, and though winters here are a little cooler than further south it’s still good weather for sightseeing.
The proximity of villas in Castelldefels to Barcelona International Airport makes getting here quick and easy. Many of the world’s major airlines offer flights to Barcelona and your choices are further improved with charter and budget airlines flying here too. Monarch Airlines, Ryanair, easyJet, and Jet2.com are just some of the examples.
