About Marian Van De Ven
My name is Marian i am from The Netherlands This villa is our pride and joy and normally we rent it out max 4 months of the year. We bought the villa in 1994 and it is a very special place for me and my 4 children and extended family.... As we do live now in different places we always get together for the christmasholidays..that´s why the villa is lovely decorated because the rest of the year me and my children spend as much time there as we can In the summerperiod i will be in Sitges to check my guests in and out and to be close by incase there is something clients request or incase they have a problem with something in the villa...They can contact me always and i try to solve any issue the same day if neccesary. I have been with holidayrentals for more then 8 years and so far so good....every year we are trying to improve the villa and that shows....So far all customers have been lovely guests and i hope that 2018 will be the same
Marian Van De Ven purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Marian Van De Ven chose Sitges
First.......why Sitges? Sitges is one of Spain´s most exclusive beach resorts with several beautiful beaches, a nude beach, one for gays......a great marina with fantastic restaurants and cocktail bars and the famous pacha nightclub....The original historic centre that has not changed in 80 years or so...an 18 hole golfcourse, the national park at 2 km that spreads out for more then 50 km,,,ideal for mountainbikers, nordic walking, horse riding, jogging etc.........the classy people, Barcelona at 25 minutes by train and the airport at 20 km.........and why my villa?........because it has a beautiful tropical, flat garden ideal for children, huge swimmingpool, lots of sunloungers and space still for children to play. We have another big terrace in the back of the garden what has sunshine all day, from 6.00.a.m till late evening, ideal for early breakfasts or see the sun go down. 7 very spacious bedrooms and 2 big livingrooms, good for if there are more families.....children can walk to the beach them self or go into the centre...also there is a busstop next to villa who takes you to the centre for 1 euro!!!.....taxi back 7 euro.....fantastic location,quite residential neigbourhood, big supermarket down the corner, great entertainment features, satelite t.v with all sport and movie channels etc.etc
What makes this Villa unique
4 bedrooms downstairs and 2 direct acces to garden, very good for elderly people so they don't have to climb any stairs. Most villas more in the hills have always a lot of stairs to climb which you can't see on the photos always space outside the villa too for parking..good for a big crowd
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
The perfect pad for a special occasion.
Myself and 15 of my friends recently stayed in Marian's beautiful home to celebrate my friends hen party and we had a perfect weekend! The property, and the garden pool area was just as we had seen in the pictures. And, wow the garden was the absolute highlight of the weekend!
The house itself is spacious with 7 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms (I lost count) with a fully equipped kitchen. We even booked a catering service via Marian's son in law who cooked us all a delicious paella lunch that we enjoyed on the terrace after a day of relaxing by the pool! All for a very reasonable price.
Thank you Marian for a wonderful experience. We would be thrilled to stay at your place again!.
Best villa we've ever stayed in!
We were a group of 16 on a hen do and everyone agreed the villa absolutely made our weekend. The garden and pool area is exactly what you see in the photos, it really is a beautiful hideaway. The villa is large and can accommodate a large group, it has a large kitchen, bbq, pool table, several lounge areas and plenty of space if you want time out. The beach and supermarket are 10-15 mins walk away. We spent an evening at Queenz which we would highly recommend for a night out. Taxi into the old town was around €12 for 6 seater. Marian was very helpful from start to finish. We loved the villa so much we hope to return next year. Don't hesitate booking...it's perfect!
Thanks Adele, for the great review.So glad that you enjoyed the Villa and beautiful Sitges.
Have a great wedding day and hope to see you next year,
Stunning Villa in great Location
We were a group of 17 who stayed at the villa for 3 days in September. The Villa was massive and there was ample space for 17 adults. Everything was incredibly clean and well maintained but the main appeal of this villa is the stunning terrace, garden and pool area outside! Marian couldn’t have been more helpful and was always on hand to assist where needed. She arranged a catered BBQ at a very reasonable price for all of us on one evening and the food was superb. All in all for a large group or family, you cannot go wrong with this Villa. Thankyou Marian.
Thanks Mark, for the nice review.
It was a pleasure having you ... such a nice guests ..😏�..and i hope to see you again sometime in the future.
Take care, and wishing you all a nice wedding day
A spacious villa with a beautiful garden
We found the villa very spacious with room for all our guests. There were plenty of seating areas which allowed our family to sit together or have time in smaller groups. The balconies were lovely. The garden is the best feature in my opinion, this is well looked after and beautifully designed. The pool is the perfect size with a shallow and deep end. The property is suitable for children and ours enjoyed spending the day playing in the pool. There are a number of rooms which are all themed but these do vary in size which is expected of any property. The house was clean with plenty of clean towels and bedding provided. The bathrooms require a bit of maintenance as the showers did not all work well/no plugs in most the sinks, but when I mentioned this to Marion she had not been told previously so was unaware, so I am sure this will be sorted now she knows. The kitchen is well equipped and there are a couple of BBQs that we cooked on a few nights. Marion is lovely and very quick to respond to any messages sent. The marina is close by (about 10 minutes walk) with nice restaurants and water activities (we tried jet skiing), the town is a bit further and with children took us over 30 minutes to walk in. I loved Sitges, it is a vibrant place with a lot going on. It is a great place for families and also for fun nights out. We enjoyed our stay, I would recommend this villa and would come again.
Wonderful family vacation in a beautiful villa!
We were a family of 18 people, 3 generations, staying for 2 weeks. Beautiful house with different themes in all 7 bedrooms. There was everything we needed for our stay supplied including beach towels. The two living rooms are spacious and very conformable.
But most of all the garden is spectacular! Great terraces were we could eat and relax and even a small fish pond. Stunning trees and flowers beautifully set up and a large swimming pool with night lights. Also a lot of benches for laying down beside the pool.
A walking distance from many beaches and to the heart of Sidges with all the restaurants, shops and activities is great.
All this made our vacation a wonderful experience, couldn't have been better! Highly recommend!
Thank you Marian!
Hello Kristin, thanks for the nice review, glad that you and the other family members enjoyed your stay.
And thanks for being nice guests, and leaving the house nice and tidy, which must be difficult with a group of 18..
Warm greetings from Spain to cold(er) Iceland,
Spacious villa with an amazing garden & pool
We were a family of 16 and spent a brilliant week at the villa at the start of August. On arrival Marian spent a long time explaining the set up and how everything worked. She was constantly available by phone and could not have been more helpful and responsive.
The outdoor space was amazing and certainly the finest aspect of the villa. Absolutely perfect. There was plenty of space for eating, entertaining, playing and relaxing and we never felt crowded or on top of one another. There were more than enough sun beds and relaxation areas. The pool was ideal with a shallow end for the younger ones and a good deep end for diving and jumping. The garden was beautiful and provided plenty of shade as did the terrace. We also utilised the massive BBQ on several nights.
The villa itself was very large. All rooms were a very good size including the kitchen, which had all the amenities we required. Upstairs there was a massive curved TV which had plenty of channels and Netflix, this went down very well with the younger members of our group. Overall the inside could do with a small amount of TLC but nothing that would distract you from having an fabulous time. We arrived during a massive European heatwave so a few of the bedrooms were very hot for sleeping even though each had ceiling fans. Nothing Marian could do about the weather!
On one night, Marian arranged for her friend, a chef, to come and cook our family paella. This was a massive highlight of our holiday. The chef arrived with a couple of family members and arranged the table, served a 3 course meal and then cleared everything away for a very reasonable price. They were a lovely and didn’t let us lift a finger. Fantastic evening and throughly recommended.
The nearest supermarket (Carrefour) is approx 5-10 walk away and offers everything you need at good prices. BBQ food went down very well. Marian had a water cooler installed at the villa and we took up her offer of using this for a small fee (for the bottled water), this was great as it saved transporting large amounts of water from the supermarket.
The walk to the port (closest restaurants and beach) took approximately 15-20 mins. The beach was lovely, safe (constant lifeguard), with a long gradual slope, water sports and a bar/cafe. The port restaurants offered various choices and although slightly pricy the food and location were excellent. You can also hire and skipper your own motorboat for a couple of hours for approx €80.
Hello Chris, and family, thanks for the great review.
To have guests like you make all the efford and hard work worth while.
I can't believe you even bought new fish food!!
and say hello to everybody, hopefully you will have another family reunion some time in the near future, so i can welcome you again,
