This is a well maintained villa on the hills in Castelldefels. Plenty of space inside and out with well maintained gardens and pool. Staff very efficient and available for all enquiries, nothing is too much. The overall area is very quiet and perfect for a relaxing holiday. Town and beach are a 15 minute walk but be prepared for a very steep hill. We would definitely go back in the future. Keith
A really beautiful villa with plenty of space for the family to enjoy. Maria, the cleaning lady, was an absolute star and happy to help however she could. The pool was great, and very warm by early afternoon. Great location in Castelldefels - plenty of restaurants which were lovely. The Elefante restaurant which is about a 10 min walk from the villa was lovely too - nice atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. Beaches nearby were fantastic - lush, soft sand and warm shallow sea. Lots nearby to explore too in case it rains! Have already recommended to friends!
We have enjoyed the stay and can highly recommend the villa. Toni and his staff as well Jordi who helped us to get @ Castelldefels and Barcelona have made our live during a hard working week very enjoyable. TKS again for All !
My family and I had an amazing two weeks at this lovely villa in the hills above Castelldefels beach. The villa had pool, bbq, fast internet and the manager Toni was a gracious host. Would easily stay again. Recommended.
The property is even more beautiful than the pictures show! Surrounded by lush, private garden and patios. We picked peaches, strawberries, tomatoes fresh from the garden. Everything worked well and Toni, the cleaning lady, the gardener, and the driver were all very responsive if we needed anything. Toni went above and beyond by providing carseats, highchairs, etc and even loaned us his own stroller. The neighborhood is very quiet, peaceful, and high end - a welcome retreat from the city bustle. We stayed for almost 3 weeks and never ran out of things to do.
We did not have a car, which would have made things quite a bit easier, but we managed fine with trains, buses, and taxis. The climb up the hill to the house is not for the faint of heart or legs. Our 2 year old was able to do it most days, but I warn you it is steep. A very fit person can make it down to the beach/train in about 10-15 minutes, but going up allow 25 to an hour especially with kids. The trains into Barcelona run about every 20 minutes and take about 25 minutes. From there, walking to the Ramblas or Barri Gotic is a quick 10 minutes. The total commute can eat up a good bit of your time. Taxis are much quicker, and fairly cheap, but it does add up.
The beach is wonderful with a constant cool breeze. Lots of great places to eat and chill while the kids play in the sand. Barcelona is very kid-friendly with little parks everywhere and playground equipment at most beach restaurants. You must try zumo de coco - coconut juice - and the mojitos and sangria are great!
You can also enjoy cooking at home - we grilled a few times. Nice shady patios to dine al fresco. We always ate breakfast at home and sometimes packed a picnic lunch. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, fridge, microwave, etc. There is also a very nice restaurant in easy walking distance from the house for dinner.
The house was very clean, comfortable, and secure, with plenty of living space inside and out. 2 of the bedrooms are large, one with its own bath. The air conditioning works wonderfully. The beds are a bit more firm than US standards and the 'queens' are the size of our fulls, but still quite comfortable.
We would not hesitate to rent this same villa again! Thank you, Toni, for helping us have a great dream vacation!!!
This villa was in a great neighborhood and was very safe and secure. The beach was just a short walk down the hill, there was lots of beach and wild wind surfing and kite surfing that happened right in front of us. The beach is wild, windy and beautiful. There were plenty of places right on the sand to catch a drink or a light lunch too.
Toni, the house manager, couldn't have been more hospitable, he drove us to the local grocery to make sure we had everything we would need to have a few meals at the villa. There were good restaurants, as well, at the beach and in Castledefels. We also used Jordie, the Villa Carmen's preferred driver, and were very pleased with his service to and from the airport as well. Both Jordie and Toni spoke excellent English and this was very helpful as our Spanish was not that good, and of the Mexican variety as well, so we were able get an idea of how things worked in Barcelona before we journeyed into the city to see the great art and cultural things it had to offer. We were able to make requests in town and had good luck making our needs know to the locals who were all very warm and friendly to us. I would recommend the Castledefels area to my friends who travel.
The villa was just as beautiful as it was pictured on the VRBO site and the pool was lovely. The patios were great for relaxing and reading in the sun, but there is also plenty of shade. The pool is refreshing and just the right size. The gardens are well kept and there are exotic flowers and plants everywhere. There were also a few cats that pop in for a visit now and again, but they ran away if you approached them so they weren't intrusive.
The villa had everything the site says it had and everything worked well for us. The kitchen had everything needed to cook and eat a few meals at the villa and this definitely saved us a bit of money.
I would make an effort to book this villa again if I were planning to go to the Catalonia area in Spain in the future, as our family had a great time there and felt quite a home. I would also hire a car the next time so we could explore the country side and mountains.
