Sitges: Sitges has been a resort since the 19th century and has its own dignity and style that regular visitors know and love. Sitges is popular with both gay visitors and families with children. With its beautiful beaches and promenade, charming old quarter, first class fish restaurants and diverse nightlife, Sitges has something for everyone. Sitges can get very busy in high season (July and August) so if you are looking for peace and quiet then this resort may not be for you. Out of high season the town is much more relaxed.
There is now a public (indoor) swimming pool in Sitges which is around a 20 minute walk from the apartment. There is no public outdoor pool in Sitges, however there is an outdoor pool in nearby San Pere de Ribes, a 5 minute journey away.
Barcelona: Barcelona is the heart, both culturally and spiritually, of Catalonia. This cosmopolitan, Mediterranean city is only a 30-minute train ride away from Sitges. Trains leave Sitges regularly to Barcelona approximately every 20 minutes from morning until night. A visit of the works of Europe´s most innovative architects, Antoni Gaudí ( The Sagrada Familia, La Pedrea, Park Guell and Guell Palace) is just one of the many cultural delights of this beautiful place. As well as the Modernist architecture and the art of Picasso and Miró, this vibrant city offers the eerie chill of the Gothic quarter, the harbour promenade, the flowers and the street artists of ‘Las Ramblas’ and the magnificent mountain miradors of Tibidabo and Montjuic.
The apartment: The apartment is situated in the centre of the old town just minutes away from the shops and restaurants. The beaches and promenade are a short 3 minute walk away. The apartment is 10 minutes walk from Sitges railway station and the wonderful covered market. Here you can buy fresh bread and pastries, a huge variety of fresh fish, meat, and fruit and vegetables every day except Sunday. There is a selection of good supermarkets and local shops including an excellent fish shop within a few minutes walk of the apartment. Parking in Sitges can be very problematic, especially in high season. The apartment has the benefit of a parking space in an underground car park below the block. This is a real advantage as the few public car parks in Sitges can be expensive.
