Nothing between you and the sea. 3 minutes walk for the train into Barcelona but the train noise can hardly be heard in the appartment, and not at all in the living room and front bedroom. Apoartment was well equipped and very clean. Good info provided by owner. Would highly recommend this property

Amazing spacious well equipped property , beautifully renovated . Fantastic helpful host in Bas , booked restaurants for us when needed. Lovely Spanish town including sandy beach 15minute walk although bus service also very good for journey back if needed. Easy transport by train to Barcelona City . Would thoroughly recommend this property . Thankyou Bas .

Appartment is in a great location and good condition, very close to beach which had really nice cafe/bars. Fantastic views from Appartment,. Well kitted out with washing machine/ dryer etc. Pools and gardens nice and well maintained. Would recommend having a car as supermarkets are quite a distance, although having train station close is a real plus. Great service into Barcelona and other smaller towns.
