This spacious design villa was build in 2006 and is in a perfect condition. The view is spectacular. Everything in the house is new, since this is the third year it is for rent. The interior is modern and very tasteful. A lot of care has been spent on the details. The villa has four bedrooms, three of which are on the ground level facing the pool. The 4th bedroom, also master bedroom, is on the first floor and has a terrific sea view. All bedrooms have brandnew box spring beds and big (build in) closets. There are three bathrooms, two of which with a bath. There are many terraces and a roofed lounge area overlooking the gorgeous overflow-swimmingpool. The TV room has a TV with many international channels and a playstation 3 with a lot of games. The living room has 5 meter high windows with again a spectacular sea view. The villa has wifi internet and a well equipped kitchen. The location of the villa is ideal, a beautiful neighbourhood ( Vallpineda) and very near to the center of Sitges.
At 300 meters from the villa there is a fantastic (paddle)tennis club with a great gym and a pool of olympic size.
Sitges has many cultural festivities. It is well known for its filmfestival in october (mini-Cannes), its Gourmet weekend in the same month, Carnival in february, The Barcelona Vintage Car Rally in march and of course the Fiesta Mayor in August. During those days the whole historical center of Sitges is bustling with activity. The beautiful town of Sitges has its own special character, with an interesting countryside dominated by the Pinedes Wine valley and the magnificent Garraf National Park. Barcelona is very close by and the airport is only a 20 minute drive. Together with a lovely climate Sitges offers everything for a great vacation.
The atmosphere of the house is a combination of a modern interior with the use of timeless materials. It is spacious and light with a lot of storage room. The garage with room for one car has an extra fridge. The villa also has a garden where one can enjoy the peace and quiet of this green and beautiful neigbourhood. By car it is only two or three minutes to the beach and centre of Sitges. There are only a few weeks left from May to September. Mail or call the owner for a last minute discount!!!
We are a Dutch family with three sons. Two are studying and one is still at school. We have bought this house three years ago and like to go there as often as possible with work and school.
Monique Muller purchased this villa in 2011
Just returned from a 3 week vacation in Spain. Our first week was in Bilbao and San Sebastián. Second week was in Sitges and the final week in Madrid. There were 8 of us traveling together (2 families, 4 adults and 4 teenage girls). This was definitely the best equipped rental we had while in Spain.
When we arrived, we were greeted by Madeleine, who looks after the property and showed us around, gave us instructions on how to use everything and said to call her if we had any questions or concerns. She was very helpful.
We had rented a car and there is room on the driveway in front of the garage to park, which was nice, so no need to park on the street and car was safe and protected behind the powered gate. It was nice to have the car to get groceries, and drive into downtown Sitges.
All the beds were very comfortable and all rooms had their own air conditioning units. The kitchen is very well equipped for a rental property. Lots of dishes, pots, pans and spices, tea, etc.
We spent every day away from the house, either in Barcelona or in Sitges. But it was always a wonderful treat to come back to the house and go for a swim in the beautiful pool. The previous review mentioned wildlife in the pool? The odd bird would fly and land on the edge of the pool, and easily shooed away. We were pleasantly surprised that no birds ever came on the upper deck or on any of the patio furniture while we were eating outside. The neighbors cat would come and visit once in awhile, which our teen girls loved. The pool was very clean and well maintained.
As for location, it is a bit of a hike to town. Easy to walk down but a challenge to walk up at the end of the day. We would either take our car and park down at the edge of town for free or walk down and take a taxi back up. (6 euros). To get to Barcelona, it would take about a half hour to walk to the train station from the house and the train is about 30-45 min, depending on number of stops. We didn't spend as much time as we had wanted in Barcelona, because of the time it takes to travel back and forth, but the comfort of the home was so nice that we actually ended up wanting to spend more time by the pool at the house.
Sitges was a very quaint little town with some great restaurants (our favorite was Nems in old town). We do wish we had more time to spend in Sitges to enjoy more of the area. Would definitely rent this house again.
The photos do accurately represent the look of the place but the experience we had staying there was quite different to all the previous reviews. Sitges itself was dirty, graffitied, with sellers of knock-off goods crammed in along the beach, only one building of architectural interest (church) and random pools of blood on the pavements! A really dodgy place to be.
The house itself is in good condition but all the utensils, crockery and glasses needed either a thoroughly good clean or were chipped, cracked, burnt, and just needed a wholesale replacement. The dishwasher itself was dirty and I had to clean out the filter and run it through empty a few times before it would actually clean anything. Even the bath had obvious dirt in it and we didn't want to use it.
The pool table was damaged and unusable, there were lots of playstation 2 games but nothing to play them on and the WiFi was useless.
The interior may be modern and tasteful but that is at the expense of being comfortable. The sofas stank, like wet dog, I couldn't sit on them they were that bad and my partner said when he sat on them dirt got stuck to his skin! The rest of the seating indoors is all hard plastic and very uncomfortable so the only place I could sit comfortably in the house all week was on a bed! All the floors were also dirty.
The swimming pool looks lovely but the local wildlife use it as a bath which means it's dirty too. The time spent by the pool was severely marred by the construction work going on next door. The photos show a thick, green hedge between the house and the neighbours but in fact it is currently some dead brown leaves attached to a spindly stick fence that you can quite easily see through. The workmen started at 8am and finished at 8pm every weekday and had a generator on for that whole period. They used circular saws out in the garden, drills and hammers and there was a fairly constant stream of dust and debris that blew across into our pool. They shouted out to each other all day and blared their radio too. If I did decide to stick it out and put up with the noise and dust, the men would choose that time to smoke and watch me sunbathe. With all of that going on outside, it was not comfortable anywhere at the property.
I was surprised and disappointed by the fact that the owner had rented us the property knowing that there was construction work going on next door and had deliberately withheld this information. Upon complaint, she gave us 10% back. Beware!
My family stayed here for a week, Sitges is a great place, the house is a 15 min walk into town. The house is incredible and has everything that you need. Unfortunately too cold to use the pool in April which was a shame, but great to sit outside either on the upstairs over looking the town and see or by the pool. We would really recommend
Me and my wife along with three other couples spent a wonderful week at this beautiful villa. The house was located up on a hill overlooking the town of Sitges and the Mediterranean. The rooms are spacious and the design of the house is excellent. It is a modern layout with soaring ceiling and huge glass windows that let in tons of light. There is a great pool that we were able to swim in even late in the season (early October).
The house is about 1.5 miles from the downtown area, so it took about 20-25 minutes to walk to the restaurants and the beach that is located right in town. There is a bus that runs every thirty minutes that I would recommend using. There are plenty of taxis in town to bring you back up the hill at the end of the evening if you don't feel up the walk.
We had no issues while staying there and would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a house to rent for a vacation with some other friends.
Our family have just spent a truly fabulous week in this amazing villa we were celebrating our Golden Wedding. We wanted a special location & villa to stay in and this place surpassed even our expectations. Everything about the villa is 5 star and we take away happy memories of a very special week in a beautiful place. We hope to return as we also fell in love with Sitges.
We spent an amazing week in July in this beautiful house. The villa is absolutely stunning and has everything you need!!! We were two families (4 adults and 4 kids) and enjoyed every minute. The kids loved the pool and we loved the sun chairs under the sunscreen :-)! The lounge area at the pool is perfect for games, snacks and a glass of wine. Every morning and evening we enjoyed the big balcony/porch with an amazing view over Sitges. Sitges is a nice little town. We came down there in the evenings to enjoy the restaurants and stroll around and look at the little shops. The beach was also very nice for an afternoon swim! We can recommend this house to anyone and would love to come back. A big thank you to the owner for sharing this little paradise with us!
This fantastic design villa is located in Vallpineda, one of the most prestigious areas of Sitges. The villa has a magnificent 180 degree view over the sea and Sitges itself and is only a three minute drive away from the lively and characteristic center with its beautiful boulevard and sandy beaches, ideal for children. Sitges is known for its microclimate and has more than 300 sunny days a year. The center with the beautiful church is filled with restaurants, (tapas) bars, cafe's and shops. Also for sports lovers there is a lot to do: tennis, golf, horse riding, sailing, surfing, never a dull moment. Barcelona is at half an hour drive and can be ideally reached by train. Culture, beaches, nightlife, but most of all the characteristic relaxed atmosphere of Sitges itself, offers the perfect ingredients for a fantastic holiday. The villa is in a perfect condition, only seven years old and very tastefully refurbished. A private pool with overflow makes the villa a great place to relax!
Skiing: La Molina is a great skiing area beautifully surrounded by mountains of 2500 meters. Is is the closest skiing area to Sitges and can be easily reached by car, bus or train. Many residents of Catalunia go there on a regular basis, also for the weekends.
Golf: Sitges has an excellent golfcourse (18 holes) which lies beautifully along the coast. The course is in the Terramar area, a 25 minutes walk from the center and five minutes by car.
