Make a holiday cottage in Castellet your home away from home

Castellet holiday cottages are in an idyllic landscape of vineyards, rivers and pine-clad hills not far from the Mediterranean coast. Without doubt, holiday homes in Castellet are made for wine-lovers, but the location is superb for outdoor activities, trips to Costa Dorada beaches and all kinds of interesting cultural visits nearby. In between the many excursions a cottage in Castellet will be a traditional but luxurious escape ideal for families and groups of friends. Alongside original features like terracotta tiles and fireplaces are private pools, tasteful modern kitchens and contemporary bathrooms. 

Things to do

-Natural scenery: At the centre of Castellet is the Foix Reservoir, which is surrounded by a protected landscape of moderate hills covered in forest. This is the source of a number of small rivers and a lovely place to go walking or bike riding. Next to the reservoir is the Castle of Castellet, which has sections dating to the 1100s including a defensive tower.

-Viticulture: Castellet is in Penedès, one of Spain’s top winemaking regions, and the town of Vilafranca del Penedès features several wineries and cellars to visit. The main product of this region is the famous Cava sparkling wine, and at wineries like Mastinell and Pinord visitors can get to know the process and history, as well as tasting and purchasing some of the country’s best wine. 

 

-Beaches: The nearest Mediterranean resort to Castellet is Vilanova i la Geltrú. Here there’s a long and broad sandy bay, flanked by a palm-lined promenade. It’s a fine destination for a family day at the beach, but also for foodies looking for superb fish restaurants: Michelin recommends a visit to this town. The neighbouring Terramar Golf Club will help round off a perfect visit to the Costa Dorada.

-History: Vilafranca del Penedès also has plenty of heritage to take in. There’s the medieval gothic church of Santa Maria as well as the Palau Reial, a former royal palace that now houses archaeological and natural history exhibits. A little way west of Castellet is Santes Creus, a Cistercian Monastery from the 12th century with many beautifully maintained elements, including stone carvings, window tracery and several royal tombs. 

-Day trips: Castellet is handy for a visit to Barcelona, the young, stylish and elegant city loved for the eye-catching architecture of Antoni Gaudí and home to outstanding dining, nightlife and culture. In the other direction is Tarragona, containing UNESCO-listed historical monuments and also next to PortAventura, one of the best theme parks in Europe.

Weather in Castellet

Castellet holiday homes are in a region ideal for winemaking, with long, warm summers and soft winters. Visitors arriving between May and October should bring a hat and plenty of sun cream, as most days are perfectly clear and there are highs that soar to 30°C or more in July and August. Earlier and later in the season, the weather is much milder, with highs of 18°C in April and November. A normal winter’s day in Castellet is clear, with highs of about 13°C. 

Travel to Castellet

Castellet holiday rentals sit at the midway point between Reus Airport (REU) to the west and Barcelona-El Prat (BCN) to the east. Reus is a smallish destination, getting mostly low-fare traffic in the summer and is linked to Castellet via the A-7 for a journey of about 40 minutes. Similar driving times can be expected to reach this area from Barcelona, which is a much larger destination and the more frequently used port of entry for the Castellet area. There are also regular trains from central Barcelona to the town of Vilafranca del Penedès, with journey times of about an hour.

Ideal for family stay

5 of 5
Great garden for kids and adults. The pool and garden are well maintained and were serviced twice during the week of our visit. Plenty of space indoors and out for family activity, and a comfortable place to spend the evening after a day of travelling. Comfortable bedrooms. Large supermarket and cafes nearby in Canyelles, and only 10-15 minutes by car from the beaches of Sitges and Villanova. Well located for Barcelona and other sights like Montserrat and Cardona.

Fantastic villa with amazing views.

5 of 5
Fantastic property, we weren't disappointed on arrival, as good as the photos look and a high spec. View is amazing. Oliviero is very helpful when you need him but very discreet if you don't. Only downside to this property is also an upside - being on a mountainside the view is incredible, unfortunately this does mean a bit of a trek back to the property. We counted 305 steps up the hillside path, we were ok with this a few times but it is difficult in the heat. However, taxis are reasonable, about 10 euros from the marina, or 12 from the town centre so not really too much of a problem. About 15 minutes walk down to the marina or the Carrefour supermarket who deliver your shopping for free within a couple of hours. Just fill your trolley and take it to the till, they arrange the rest for you. This was a huge bonus. Would definitely recommend hiring a car if you're not so keen on the hike. Excellent restaurants at the marina (which you can see from the villa) serving seafood but also steaks, pizza etc. We had one day in Barcelona but spent most of the time at the villa due to the heat whilst we were there. We all loved the pool which was lovely and clean and bigger than we expected. Also a nice big barbecue which we used a few times. We were a group of 6 and had plenty of space to spread out and not get on top of each other. Loved our stay here and would definitely recommend. We hope to come back again some day.
