Nearby Argentona had some well located and reasonably priced restaurants and bars, while a short drive away are a shopping centre, lots of beaches and of course Barcelona. Giovanni was a fantastic host, super helpful with local information and even offering to help us book taxis and drive us into town on our last day! Thank you for a week in the sun that none of us will forget!

Very clean and today and great views across to the beach. Will definately use this lovely place again.
