Make a holiday rental in Maresme, Spain your home away from home

Maresme self-catering holiday accommodation is found in a region of Catalonia, to the northeast of the city of Barcelona. Boasting beautiful coastline, picturesque towns and dramatic mountain scenery inland, it would be the ideal destination for a beach holiday packed with day trips and excursions.

Things to do in Maresme, Spain

Self-catering holiday rentals in Maresme are set along a portion of the Catalan coast known as the Costa del Maresme – a tourist region known for its pleasant climate, lovely beaches and long tradition for seafaring. Among the numerous resorts found along the coast are Santa Susana, Calella, Pineda de Mar and Malgrat de Mar. The beaches here are long stretches of golden sand, where you’ll find a host of things to see and do in the summer months, including a range of water sports. You could also make for the small town of Arenys de Mar, which has long been associated with the fishing industry and would be an ideal spot for lunch.

Inland, the scenery around Maresme holiday accommodation is attractive, with a landscape of vineyard and olive groves. You’ll be very close to the mountains of the Coastal Range here, and at the Parc Natural de Montnegre you’ll have a variety of opportunities for outdoor recreation, from hiking, to mountain biking.

Meanwhile an interesting town to visit close to Maresme holiday rentals would be Mataró, which features remnants from the Roman era, and is also home to a number of buildings designed by the Catalan modernist architect Puig i Cadafalch, who was responsible for many of the most impressive examples of Art Nouveau architecture in Barcelona and the surrounding region at the start of the 20th Century.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The kitchen is small but well-equipped with an excellent fridge freezer and good supply of hot water. The electric cooker was in great condition too as was the dish-washer. The excellent coffee machine was appreciated. Plenty of crockery and glasses. Bedrooms were comfortable with good beds and lovely crisp white sheets. The x2 ensuites were a huge bonus and the showers were very good. The rood terrace was also a huge bonus and a real sun-trap. Paca, the host, was absolutely brilliant - helpful and friendly throughout the entire process, from booking to checking us into the property. Her colleague who checked us out as we were leaving was equally commendable. Many thanks to both of them. The town itself is wonderful with excellent restaurants, cafés and shops. Everyone is very welcoming and helpful. We felt very much at home in this community. I will mention just a few little things would have made our stay even better, if that is possible. These can easily be remedied. In the absence of a kettle for boiling water, a small saucepan with one handle would be very useful to make pouring easier. A few condiments such as salt, pepper, oil would be greatly appreciated too as would a bottle of water in the fridge on arrival on a hot day ... Only one of the blinds in the living area was working - (this was not a problem as the apartment was naturally bright in any case and the air-con was very efficient) - except for the one in the lower bedroom which didn't provide much black-out and unfortunately there is a bright light on the wall just outside this room ... We spent a fabulous week here in the catalan sunshine and really hope to return next June - we will book up again soon! Thank you very much!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I found Villa Malvina after searching the Homeaway website for a Villa for 10. It was our base for the Ironman event so we needed to be close to Calella, large enough for ten adults with space for us to all feel 'on holiday' without having to travel too far - especially on the days just before and after the race. The Villa was well described and accurately photographed on the website and any queries that we had were quickly answered by Club Villamar. We also wanted something that felt luxurious without costing the earth. Villa Malvina ticked all those boxes. It's worth knowing that the Villa is at the top of a very steep hill - too steep to cycle in either direction, and a small car would be challenged to get five adults to the top of the switchback! It's also worth knowing that the tiered garden has a lot of steps - no problem for us but worth bearing in mind if you are elderly or have small children. The Villa and gardens are very spacious, the views are stunning in all directions, and the pool is clean and beautiful. It would be fair to say that the decor inside the villa is a little dated and perhaps not up everyone's taste. However it is spotlessly clean, well furnished and very comfortable. There are two good showers and plenty of hot water at good pressure. The bedroom arrangement needs careful consideration if you are a party of ten. There are two double rooms, one twin and a single. The other three beds are sofa beds. There is a rather uncomfortable leather sofa bed in the third lounge - this is a otivste 'snug' with shower room and laundry opening off, so in spite of it being a sofa bed this is the only room with en suite facilities. Our tenth guest cancelled at the last minute,so we never found out where the other sofa bed was, but I assume it would have been in one of the other two walk through lounges. I would say the house is perfect for 7, good for 9 but would only work for 10 for certain groups. A floor plan on the website would have been helpful. The kitchen is generally well equipped although some of the equipment is showing signs of wear. The same could be said outdoors. Plenty of sunloungers and chairs - even a sofa swing and hammock. All comfortable but some with ripped covers and one of the outdoor tables had its extension leaf broken off. That didn't spoil our holiday, we just felt comfortable and 'at home', but a more critical eye might find it a retraction from this otherwise highly recommended property.

There were a few bits and pieces in the kitchen cupboards so we didn't to have to start from scratch for cooking ingredients. The pool was great and not busy when we wanted to use it and. The only thing to point out was that the apartment is on the second floor and so would have been tricky for some people. The beach was beautiful and a genuine ten minute walk and was not busy either. A few nice local eating places although it took us a little while to get used to the later eating time in the evening (8.30) and shops. Communication with Rose was excellent and very helpful. All in all we had a thoroughly lovely time and would definitely recommend the apartment.
