About Rose Chappell
I'm an ex nurse and English teacher and very busy mother of two small children. I'm married to my lovely Catalan husband and have been living in the area for ten years. I have no time for hobbys at the moment although i'd love to take one up soon.
Why Rose Chappell chose Caldes d'Estrac
I fell in love with this property because of the relaxing village atmosphere and the views from the living room. It's a very relaxing space in which to spend time, its light and airy. Loads of natural light in every room. And close to so many attractive places to visit.
What makes this Apartment unique
This property and area offers the unique benefits of both access to a quiet village with lovely restaurants, with an authentic atmosphere which is not over run by tourists. You have the beach ten mins walk away, a train into the magnificent city of Barcelona (40) mins, and if you want mountains, you only have to turn left out of the apartment and you could literally walk for hours in the mountains and never meet a soul.
Pool / Spa
A really lovely place to relax
The apartment is great and as advertised. The balcony runs the full length of the apartment and offers the option of sun or shade all day. The large shared pool is less than 30 seconds from the front door and we had it to ourselves most of the time. The town is lovely with a good selection of restaurants and bars and although it caters for tourists, it retains the feel of an authentic Spanish coastal town. The beach is really good and clean with lots of places to eat and drink. Rose, the owner, was really helpful and easy to contact. We would highly recommend.
Lovely spacious apartment in a quiet Spanish town.
We had a lovely family holiday in this quiet town. Great facilities that met and exceeded our expectations. Rose was extremely helpful and remained in contact throughout our stay. Nice quiet pool and picnic area and a lovely beach ten minutes walk. 5 minutes from the train station that would take you to Barcelona or to Blane's where you can change for lloret de mar etc. Local supermarkets and a family run bakery that baked us gluten free bread on request. Half an hour walk along the coast to the left to Lidl so can get everything you need. It was so lovely to escape to somewhere that was very Spanish and away from busy tourist resorts. Just down the road to a local spa that offers treatments including the thermal baths. All in all it was a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday and would definitely go back and especially to Rose's apartment. She was so hospitable and left gluten free bread and nappies for us on arrival. ❤️
Perfect Small Town, Large Appartment, Laid Back Relaxing Setting
This appartment was perfect! First of all the pictures do not do it justice. You essentially have the entire 2nd floor of the appartment building, and 5 separate rooms not counting 2 bathrooms (3 bedrooms). There is a wrap around porch that spans the entire 2nd floor - perfect for sipping coffee and watching the sun rise... although our favorite spot was down the hill into town on a bench by the ocean. The appartment had all the accommodations you need and then some. Rose was excellent, very friendly and helpful. Parking was easily accessible. The appartment is in an area that feels safe, with keyed access to the building it’s self.
The appartment was on the second floor with no lift... not a problem for us as we prefer to take the stairs. It is also a short walk to the train station and beach... all down hill (no big deal, just keep that in mind). With Barcelona and all, we walked 9-12 miles per day.
The town was friendly, the type of place where people still say hi to each other. If we come back to Barcelona, This will definitely be our appartment of choice.
Great well appointed flat in friendly village
Large flat with plenty of things for all the family ,outdoor pool as well
The property was as described. Very comfortable for our family of 7. The apartment was a short walk away from the train station. Rose was very helpful and provided great information. I look forward to renting the apartment again in the future.
The apartment was as described and was very well equipped (there was even a vegetable peeler which was a first!) and well set out. There were a few bits and pieces in the kitchen cupboards so we didn't to have to start from scratch for cooking ingredients. The pool was great and not busy when we wanted to use it and. The only thing to point out was that the apartment is on the second floor and so would have been tricky for some people. The beach was beautiful and a genuine ten minute walk and was not busy either. A few nice local eating places although it took us a little while to get used to the later eating time in the evening (8.30) and shops. Communication with Rose was excellent and very helpful. All in all we had a thoroughly lovely time and would definitely recommend the apartment.
Caldes d'Estrac(Caldetes) is located on the Maresme coast with frequent trains to Barcelona city centre 35 minutes away. It was one of the first touristy towns of Catalunya thanks to its tranquillity, charm and unique offering of thermal spring spas right on the beach. To this day it remains a very desirable location for local residents, making for a very authentic Catalan experience. The 2.5 km stretch of beaches, divided into north and south side, are all well maintained, clean, wide and sandy. The north side has a more rustic and private flair and includes a nudist area for sunbathing, swimming and eating. The busier south side includes play areas for children, beach dining and volleyball nets for adults. Fresh water showers are available the length of the entire boardwalk which is perfect for jogging, strolling or just people watching. Easy access to highway, grocery, Premium Outlet shopping, Montmelo Racetrack and excursions to Girona, Costa Brava or France.
