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 Olivella
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

The property was as nice as the pictures shows!
We enjoyed a lot. Villa was very big, clean and comfortable. We had 21 visitors (all adults) and we fit in very well. Outside pool area is also fantastic and you can make food as well outside. The owners where very helpfull and we highly recommend.

Fabulous villa in lovely surroundings
Beautiful luxurious villa with a homely feel. Amazing pool with an outside dining area and kitchen, perfect for entertaining.
The hosts are lovely- nothing is too much trouble. Thank you, Alex & Charles.
We used the service of the local private chef and Chef Ronen and Edva are truly amazing - such lovely people, cooking us mouthwatering dishes every time.
Thanks very much for your lovely review!
It has been a pleasure hosting you and your nice family!
We dearly hope to see you again!

Absolutly amazing place!
The Villa and all the surrounding are fabulous. I have organized the 40th birthday of my boyfriend, there were 22 of us, and everyone was very comfortable in their privates rooms. The villa has all the facilities that you need, is very clean and very well decorated (and have 3 kitchens that make all the preparation for the big party easier). Almost all the time we have spend outside in the swimming pool area (we were cooking in the garden kitchen, having bbq and just lots of fun during the day and night in the chill out outside area, that is very big). All the guests were impressed with the place, if you want to have a really luxury holiday or you want to impress your guests this is the place for you! And swimming pool is just huge, I have never seen any villa with that big private pool.
Mes 40 ans plus-que parfait!
Photos conforment à la réalité ! Une villa exceptionnelle, confortable, très propre, et bien équipée. Une zone chill-out proche de la piscine également très bien équipée.
Charles et Alexandra ont tout fait pour que nous célébrions mes 40 ans dans les meilleures conditions possibles.
Je recommande fortement. Mes amis et moi avons passé un séjour extra!
We are very happy you had a great celebration of your birthday and it has been a pleasure to host you and your party! Hope to see you back at your next celebration!

The property was a little older than we expected but still a lovely place.
We had a wonderful stay. The steps going up and down was a bit of a hike, but overall the property was lovely and my family had a great time. The owners were accommodating as well.
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...
Sitges (13 kms) and Barcelona (50 kms): Sitges offers 4km of palm-fringed boulevard, 17 sandy beaches and bays, a beautiful marina, a busy festive calender with some truly amazing fiestas, first-rate tourist facilities, sporting activities, dozens of bars, cafes, restaurants and loads of great designer shops.
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/
Villa Palmera is also a short drive from:
The Garraf National Park
The Garraf Bhudhist Monestry
