About Charles Van Den Berg

Alex and Charles are a Dutch couple who moved to Olivella in 1986. Charles is a local businessman and Alex is the owner of one of Sitges' most respected estate agencies.

Since moving to the property we have extended and modified the house to create a family home that blends perfectly the comforts of modern luxurious living with that of the surrounding natural environment. It is indeed a truly idyllic villa!

Charles Van Den Berg purchased this villa in 2006

Why Charles Van Den Berg chose Sitges - Garraf

The plot is 2,500 sq meters and there are no immediate neighbours as we also own the adjoining plot. The house offers far reaching and unrestricted views over the hills towards the sea and the sunrises and sunsets are quite spectacular.

We bought the house because of the space and tranquility it offers, yet it is only a 15 minute drive into Sitges or any of the other surrounding towns. So we have the best of both worlds...the country life and the urban life!

What makes this villa unique

As the climate in northern Spain is so delightful all year round, we created a home that affords us as much comfort and enjoyment both indoors and out.

We like to entertain with friends and family and the gardens provide a great playground for the children...they can hide in the tree house, jump up and down on the trampoline, play football, hide and seek or just splash around in the pool.

Meanwhile, we can enjoy adult fun in our chill out zone...we built a covered outdoor lounge, with comfy seating, a full kitchen, bar and eating area...perfect to relax after a long day or even after a short day!

We hope that our guests will enjoy our house as much as we do and our property manager will be on hand to deal with any eventualities should they arise during the rental period.

Have a great holiday,

Kind regards

Alex and Charles

Wonderful holiday in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Having watched the video and looked at the photo gallery many times before our holiday we were amazed when we first walked in, it exceeded all of our expectations.

Villa Palmera has the perfect lay out for a large party, plenty of separate spaces to live comfortably with each other. We spent two weeks here and we loved every minute, the rooms are very large and beautifully decorated.

The Villa has a lovely homely feeling to it and a lovely place to relax - we never wanted to go out!

Charles and Alexandra were very helpful and accommodating and always very quick to respond. They gave us lots of information about the surrounding area, we loved the location it was very private but not to far away from local towns and supermarkets.

So many happy memories made in beautiful surroundings, we could of stayed there forever!

AWESOME MULTI-FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time - Charles and Alexandra were great hosts and the property is really nice. We spent a lot of time with the kids in the pool and there are 2 separate apts/guest houses that are great if you have a family that wants some space - each one is 2 bedrooms and one has its own kitchen. The outside pool areas was fabulous and we grilled and ate many of our meals outside.

We look forward to returning!!

Family reunion - loved the house

  • 5 of 5

Is what is says on the tin. We stayed for 7 days, enjoyed ourselves, and would return.

The house itself was a beautiful Catalan/ Spanish house but kitted out with modern kitchen, pool, and bathrooms - a rarity according to locals we spoke with.

If you are considering staying here, one perk that is not listed in the description is access to Edva the personal chef (for a fee). Her and her team went way beyond expectations providing us the highest quality of meals while walking us through the significance and history of each dish. We planned to have her team cook for two nights for our large group, but ended up hiring them for a third.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the villa for a 40th birthday celebration. The villa was perfect in every way. Large and spacious rooms, beautiful grounds and great to have the outside kitchen given we were blessed with a week of non-stop sunshine! Charles and Alexandra couldn't have been better hosts.

Fantastic stay in a gorgeous villa

  • 5 of 5

We rented Villa Palmera for a friend's 30th birthday celebration with ~20 guests and had a great time. Communication ahead of our arrival was great and they were more than helpful with any queries we had. Check-in itself was with the owner and he did a very good job to ensure we had a full overview of the villa and all the amenities (and even offered Cava welcome drinks!)

The villa itself is much better than the pics give it credit for, rooms are great and it does indeed sleep 22 comfortably.

Would definitively recommend this for anyone looking at renting a quiet, tranquil place outside of the hustle and bustle of Barcelona (30mins drive from airport / only downside is practically non-existent public transportation alternatives)

Henderson/Coleman/Shepheard celebration

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in, the villa was like a dream!

The pool & its "living area" was quite sublime, often pools can disappoint, but not this one.

The house is beautifully designed, spacious & contemporary. Bedrooms were equipped with excellent storage, high quality beds, quiet air con & fans if needed.

Bathrooms were of a boutique hotel standard.

Charles & Alex went to great lengths to provide information on restaurants, supermarkets, & even phoned for a doctors appointment when illness arose.

Our 3 families had a fantastic stay at villa Palmera, only wished we lived there!

With the villa as your base to relax and enjoy the serenity and tranquillity of your surroundings, there are so many things to visit and to do that are within a short drive...

There is something in Sitges for everyone, its a very difficult place to get bored in, plus Sitges is also on the doorstep of one of Europe’s most beautiful and exciting cities...Barcelona.

Barcelona offers everything a tourist could possible ever want to see or do and much more. Please visit this link for information http://www.barcelonaturisme.com/
