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.

A suggestion for the owners would be to make it clear that the doorways are very low, the house water is not drinkable, you have to pay extra for heating the pool and the house water heating system is not convenient. We appreciated Jana the housekeeper and her care for us which helped make our stay enjoyable.

Fantastic view, absolutely quiet place in Autumn, well-eqipped kitchen. Place where i forgot about all problems:) Lovely Altafulla beach and the center, forever now my favourite Tarragona, great sunny promenade in Cambrils. Great parks for children in 20 min by car. Not about the house, just our experience: take some insecticide if travelling to sea with children in Autumn.
