Great duplex apartment !

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in this wonderful apartment together with our two kids for one week. We really had a great time there – it’s the perfect place to visit Barcelona (just 20 minutes by car) and to relax on the beach.

The apartment is spacious and provides everything you need, as given in the previous description. Lots of nice restaurants around. The beach is very close and you can enjoy the view on the sea from the upper terrace.

We were warmly welcomed by the owners with a bottle of vine and cupcakes. Thank you Clara and Tahiche!

We highly recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your words in homeaway webpage as well as in our guestbook. We are happy that you had a nice stay and enjoyed the house.

To us our place gets the best of both worlds: you can visit Barcelona and enjoy monuments and city life, while you get to rest in a beautiful and relaxing surrounding such as Castelldefels beach area, also with a lot of restaurants and things to do.

Clara and I hope you can return sometime. Hopefully you will be able to see Montjuic music fountains then.

Fantastic !!!

  • 5 out of 5
This was the third time within a year that we had the pleasure of staying in this great apartment. We love the large terrasses , the views to the sea and the hills, and its location: close to the beach and to the bus to Barcelona.
The apartment is well-equipped with everything you could possible need, incl. an espressomachine and an umbrella for the beach. Tahiche and Clara are great and caring hosts. When we arrived, we were greated with a huge smile, a bottle of wine and a tray of Claras fantastic cup cakes. When the electricity went out Easter Sunday, Tahiche came 5 minutes after we called and had the power fixed by the time we came back from our trip.
We are already looking very much forward to coming back in July. Thanks so much, Tahiche and Clara!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. We are glad you enjoy our apartment so much you keep coming. We feel we live in a privileged place and love to share it. We are definitely looking forward to your next visit. Though there are no Barça games during the summer, Clara´s cupcakes will be waiting for you ;-)

We finally bought a very nice new kettle to replace the faulty one. We are very glad with our insurance response. They reacted so quickly that the electricity problem was sorted out in no time, despite being a holiday.

Say hi to all the family,
Clara and Tahiche

Sun, Sea and Sightseeing. Just Great!

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I had a super 11 night stay in this lovely duplex apartment. The Mediterranean was just around the corner for our evening dips following our very active days out. Having hired a car it was great to have allocated undercover parking. Barcelona city centre is within a 20 minute drive as was the the town of Sitges, The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone looking to couple sightseeing along with seaside relaxation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We are happy you had a wonderful stay.
We feel that a car is not really necessary if you only want to visit Barcelona and Sitges. There are good bus and train connections from the house to both places. However, a rented car might prove a good idea if you are many travelling together or if you want to explore many other interesting places around. You will definitely save a bit of time and will have more flexibility, and it is very easy to drive around Castelldefels. Just let us know what your interests are and we will recommend you places to visit.

Fantastic apartment! Looking forward to return :-)

  • 5 out of 5
We totally agree with the previous reviewers!This is a fanastic holiday rental - and we have already booked to return this summer.

We loved to have breakfast on the sunny terrasse off the kitchen (the new espresso machine was a great treat!) and to relax in the upstairs lounge in the evening.

We cannot wait to return !

Owner's Response: We are happy to learn that you enjoyed your stay and also the espresso machine! We like to listen to our guests for ideas that help us improve your days at our place. That is one example of things we have added recently and we have a few more in mind for the summer season. We look forward to your next visit then.

Wonderful week in Casteldefells !

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine merveilleuse à cet appartement de Casteldefels et les propriétaires en sont pour beaucoup. Tahiche nous a très très bien accueillis en nous proposant un tour complet de la demeure et en nous expliquant les attraits de la région. L’appartement est entièrement équipé et ne manque de rien. Tahiche et Clara étaient toujours à notre disposition si nous manquions de quoi que ce soit. L’endroit est grand, les terrasses offrent une vue magnifique et la ville de Casteldefells est très charmante. Nous pouvons y pratiquer des sports de tout genre et la plage, située à seulement quelques pas de l’appartement, est grande et très propre. Nous vous recommandons fortement la place et n’hésiterons pas à y retourner si nous avons la chance de visiter l’Espagne une seconde fois. Un gros merci à Tahiche et Clara.

Diane, Conrad, Emilie, Anne et Marie-Pier

We spent a wonderful week in this apartment in Casteldefells and this is a lot due to the owners. Tahiche warmly welcomed us by giving a full tour of the house and explaining the main attractions in the area. The apartment is fully equipped. Tahiche and Clara were always available if we needed anything. The location is great, the terraces are large and offer magnificent views. The town of Castelldefels is really charming; we can practice all kinds of sports and the beach, which is only a few steps from the apartment, is large and very clean. We highly recommend the place and won’t hesitate to go back if we have the chance to visit Spain again. Thanks a lot to Tahiche and Clara.

Owner's Response: This is a very nice review. Thank you very much. We always try to recommend our guests activities and places to visit so you can tell us in advance for us be prepared. In your case we know you enjoyed the wineries around Penedés area. Next time you visit us we will offer you a different red for you to taste. Montreal is far away, but Clara and I would be very happy if you have the chance to return soon.

Castelldefels
Car: not necessary

Castelldefels is a coastal town lying by a 12 km long sandy beach with an average of nearly 300 sunny days a year. Barcelona city center is only 20 km away and you can easily get there by bus, train or car via C-31 or C-32 highways.

The house is located at a 2 minute walk from the beach of Castelldefels and at 20 minutes drive from Barcelona. Buses pass every 20 min. by next corner bus stop.

From the town train station you can get to Barcelona city center in 25 minutes and to the picturesque town of Sitges in only 10 minutes.

Tennis academies Sánchez Casal and Bruguera are only at a few km drive.

A few minutes walk from the house there are many restaurants, beach lounges and places to have a drink, though none is as close as to produce any disturbing noise. In fact the area is very quiet.

On the promenade you can walk, bike or skate and there are several places to rent water sports equipment (sailing, surfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, kite surfing, etc..). There is an inexpensive bike rental shop at walking distance from the house.

In the Olympic Canal Site (used in Barcelona 92 Olympic Games) there is a 9 hole pitch & putt course where they offer golf beginner's courses, apart from rowing, canoeing, water skiing, sailing, windsurfing and archery.

Also very near, you can you can hike, climb or mountain bike in the Garraf Natural Park.

Nature reserves of the Remolar and Ricarda are prepared for bird watching and you can reach them easily by bike, and in the same there is a riding club and several tennis clubs with racquetball, squash, etc..

There are several spa and beauty centers nearby, which also give massages.

At a very short drive, at the Anec Blau shopping center (open even on weekends) you will find many shops, restaurants and cinemas, as well as several supermarkets.

During the summertime there many festivities with fireworks on the beach or over the mountains, sardanas (Catalonian traditional dancing), castellers (human towers up to 6 person-high!), correfocs (fire parades), live music concerts and kids games.

Beach bonfires on 'Verbena de San Juan' around June the 23rd.

Festivities of the Sea around July the 16th.

'Fiesta Mayor' around August the 15th

It is worth visiting the neighboring town of Sitges during their 'Fiesta Mayor', in August, specially the spectacular fireworks over the ocean on the night of August 23rd. The beach gets packed so you must arrive early!

Weather is great all year round. In Spring and Autumn temperature is very comfortable and beach can be enjoyed until almost winter (we have swam in the ocean even in November!) Winters are mild (average temperature around 10ºC) and in the summer, being so close to the shore there is always a cool breeze reducing the heat, rising over 30 degrees only for a few days during the summer.
