About Breeda Hickey

Hi. I'm Breeda..I'm married to Matt and we have two lovely girls. Our work has taken us around the world but more recently we have lived in Spain. We loved it so much that we bought a place in Sitges even though we no longer live there but we want to keep coming back to it:-)

Breeda Hickey purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Breeda Hickey chose Sitges - Garraf

We lived in Sitges for 6 years in the Parc de Mar complex that the apartment is located in. It is so well located and so comfortable that we would be mad not to try and keep a slice of it!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment complex is spacious and green, with pools for adults and children; it is literally across the road from the beach and the Med, while behind it is a beautiful shady park with a playground. The promenade is in front of the complex and a person can walk, cycle or rollerblade into town or take the local beach train or local bus. In short, it is an easy and comfortable place to stay, be it with young children or older folk.

Sitges is a vibrant beach resort about 35 kilometres southwest of Barcelona, renowned worldwide for its Film Festival and Carnival. Located between the Garraf Massif and the sea, it is known for its beaches, nightspots, and historical sites. The Garraf/ Penedes area is famous for its wineries and its 'cava' (local champagne). Barcelona deserves at least a day's visit, if only for the fascinating Gaudi architecture. Apart from its own 17 beautiful beaches, Sitges is renowned for its festivals and special events which take place all year round.

Sitges offers many outdoor sports activities e.g. courses in sailing, kite-surfing, windsurfing, and catamaran and kayak tours. Inland, in the Garraf national park, one can find hiking and mountain biking trails, 4x4 routes, and possibilities for climbing. And there is always golf: opened in 1922, the Terramar Golf Club is one of the most prestigious clubs in Spain.

SItges is also known as a party town and there is plenty of night life.

Further afield is Port Aventura Amusement and Aquatic Park awarded as the best amusement park in Europe in 2012.The stunning Cathedral at Monserrat, built high into the Penedes mountainside is truly spectacular and is approximately 45 minutes drive from Sitges. This trip can be combined with a visit to the famous cava and wine producers of Catalunya, such as Torres, Freixenet and Cordorniu. Finally, about 1 hour’s train journey away, are the ancient Roman ruins at Tarragona where you can step back in time and see the Colosseum and Roman battlements.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have had 2 stays in Breeda's apartment - August 2016 and 2017.

We are a family of four - two teenage children aged 16 and 14. Everything about the apartment was perfect - I have nothing negative to say about it! Nicely furnished and plenty of space for our family (in 2016 we had grandparents with us, too). We ate out just about every night but the kitchen is well equipped if you want to have dinner at the apartment.

The pool is great - at first we were a little disappointed that there are no sun beds / umbrellas, but it really didn't matter, we just used towels like everyone else! I think there are a couple of fold-up chairs in the apartment which could be taken down to the pool, but we never felt the need to use them. The pool area captures the sun all day but there are some shaded parts if you need to escape the glare. It was windy for a couple of days during our holiday but we didn't notice while we were at the pool - it's in a sheltered spot.

We loved the location of the apartment. The beach is a 2 minute walk away. The section of beach closest to the apartment is really nice - you can hire pedalos, kayaks and paddle boards, there is a walled 'harbour' area which means that the water there is sheltered (if you hire pedalos, etc you can take them outside of this area). There is a beach café which is great for drinks and food.

Just a hundred metres or so further along the beach towards town you can go out on banana boats, etc. The sea was lovely and warm and there are some areas where there are some bigger waves - great fun for messing around in!

The apartment is about a 30-35 min walk in to the centre of Sitges. It is a lovely walk along the promenade - looking at the beach or admiring some of the beautiful houses! We walked into town and back nearly every day and really enjoyed doing so. Obviously our teenage children are old enough to tolerate that without complaining! If you don't fancy the walk there is a regular 'street train' plus there are public buses.

The town is really nice. Lots of little streets to explore and of course the church is a beautiful landmark. You are spoilt for choice with restaurants - there are dozens. In the evening there is a lovely atmosphere in town. In 2016 we were there at the time of the Fiesta - great to see.

I would thoroughly recommend this apartment. Sitges is a perfect place for families and is in a great location for days trips elsewhere, eg Barcelona, Montserrat, Tarragona, PortAventura.

The apartment is lovely very well equipped and comfy. Lovely swimming pools and grounds

  • 4 of 5

I can't really say anything bad about the apartment. The only down fall was no wi-if , which was important to me to keep in touch with work. Also there were no quilt or blankets on the beds , got cold in the night even with the air con off. The linens could be updated but the beds were very comfy . Please be aware it's a long walk into town (with kids very hot) so we could not go too often , so we were stuck with one very bad and expensive restaurant which is next door in the hotel , along with the very expensive small supermarket . Here you can buy dry foods but no fresh veg or meat , very little fruit! Overall a good holiday , we made use of the lovely swimming pools and beach, which is very close! If you are looking for nightlife a good selection of restaurants and shops . I would defiantly stay closer to town !

A wonderful stay in a beautiful apartment in a great town

  • 5 of 5

A brilliantly equipped and spacious apartment which was very clean and well presented with everything we needed for our stay. The nearest pool was very close to the apartment which was great for the children. There were 4 pools on the complex and all were very clean and warm! The complex itself was very nice with very friendly staff including Amadeu who was very helpful and accommodating to us. The town of Sitges was lovely with a great amount of character, great restaurants and the beaches were all very clean and not too busy with lots of nice bars and some watersports. The walk into town along the promenade was beautiful with the church all lit up at night and the atmosphere was really friendly and safe. A beach bus was available if needed and was very regular. Barcelona was a quick 30 minute train ride away and it was very simple to get there. The booking process with Breeda was very simple and she was really helpful and responsive. Overall a beautiful week in a really lovely resort and I would recommend the apartment and Sitges to anyone.

Attractive, modern, comfortable and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 week stay in these apartments and were very impressed both by the complex in which it is located and also the apartment itself. As a family of 4 (2 adults/2 children) we had lots of space and found the apartment attractive and very comfortable. In truth it exceeded our expectations and we wouldn't hesitate returning in the future.

(Positives)

-Well equipped with good facilities

-Modern, very clean, quality finishings and furniture

-Excellent location with lovely pools and garden areas

-5-10 min walk to closest beach (and there are many to choose from!)

-Relaxed environment

-Excellent support and advice when needed from Amadeus!

(Negatives)

-Could do with more sun loungers to take to the pool (only place I've ever been to where there are no chairs/loungers at the pool - you need to take your own)

-Helpful to have an additional set of keys for the apartment

Overall though, an excellent holiday in a lovely location and we will likely return in future!

Beautiful, tranquil apartment

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful apartment which exceeded our expectations and provided us with everything we needed for a perfect week in beautiful Sitges.

Hours spent relaxing by the pool, strolling along the beaches and snoozing on the private balconies with a chilled glass of vino and a good book in hand. Perfect! The convenient mini market provided all we needed for a few evenings of self catering, mixed with evenings out sampling the excellent range of restaurants and bars. Quite a long stroll along the 2.5km promenade to reach the old town and best selection of restaurants, but well worth the walk, and on a warm sunny evening a great way to build an appetite. We looked for the shuttle bus/train but it didn't run during the week, only at weekends. We spent a day visiting Barcelona - very easy to catch the local bus from outside the apartment to the train station (Every 1/2 hour), with trains running every 15 mins into the centre of Barcelona.

The apartment complex is very well maintained, clean and friendly. Amadeu (Property Manager) is on hand to offer help and advice, helping us to sort our transfer back to the airport at the end of our stay.

We'd certainly recommend the apartment for it's facilities and stunning location. A true oasis of calm. :)

we had a wonderful stay at this apartment and would definitely think of returning. Everything was as it was described and the management were very helpful. The accommodation was spacious, comfortable and very clean and it was part of a very smart complex with lovely well kept grounds.
