Destination guide

Mix urban and beach adventures at a Castelldefels villa

Castelldefels is just a short distance outside of Barcelona, conveniently located on the Costa del Garraf coastline. Booking a villa in Barcelona here puts you close to the urban attractions of the city and the pristine beaches of the coast effectively offering the best of both worlds so everyone can enjoy their holiday. There are plenty of shops and restaurants around the marina in addition to numerous water sports activities. Historical sites such as the castle of Fells are nearby for history buffs.

Things to do

Castelldefels Castle commands attention

Just look up – the mighty Castelldefels Castle is the master of this bay on the Catalan coast. It sits on a soaring perch between the Garraf Massif and the wide Llobregat delta, drawing attention with its Game of Thrones towers and keeps. Once upon a time it was used to fight off Moorish armies and pirates coming across the sea. These days, it's open for guided tours and conceals a restored 10th-century chapel in its courtyard. Oh, and the views from the top are simply to die for …


Leave footprints in Castelldefels sand

The piece de resistance of Castelldefels has to be its beach. Running for miles between the mountains, the town and the Balearic Sea, it's always got plenty of space for ambitious tanners, sandcastle builders or volleyball buffs. Lay your towel down to soak up the Spanish rays, or consider hitting the water – the swirling winds that roll down from the sierras make this a hotspot for kitesurfing and sailing. Alternatively, there's always that clutch of tapas bars and wineries peppering the promenade. When's lunch?


Castelldefels is kissed by the Catalan summer

The Mediterranean holds sway over these parts. Short winters and bursts of rain between November and March are quickly replaced by warm, dry conditions that last for most of the rest of the year. The spring, in April and May, is often touted as a favourite, offering excellent hiking in the nearby Garraf Massif and fewer crowds clogging up the museums of nearby Barcelona. It's summer that really takes the biscuit though, when regular temperatures in the high 20s and 30s draw folk to Castelldefels holiday rentals by the beach.

Natural features

Going up the Garraf from Castelldefels

You'll need to dodge the sinkholes and potholes of the Garraf Natural Park – sticking to the trails is a must – but it's certainly worth the trip. Under 20 minutes by car from the doorstep of most Castelldefels holiday rentals, the park's limestone hills are easy to get to and promise something altogether different from the wide beaches and rolling Balearic waves. You'll find yourself wandering between thickets of huge fan palms and boxwood groves, smelling wild rosemary and encountering horses grazing on the scrub meadows. Keep an eye out for the crawling carapaces of tortoises, too, not to mention swooping falcons overhead.
