About The Owner

I am English and was living in Sitges with my family for 11 fantastic years. We have now returned to London for work but still spend as much time as possible in Sitges for holidays.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Sitges

My husband and I brought this house after 5 years of looking for the perfect house in the right area of town to bring up our 3 young children. We then spent a long time completely renovating and changing the house layout to suit family life with large living room/kitchen spilling out onto outside dining areas and BBQ. The lush garden full of beautiful plants is a peaceful haven and the pool is very recently renovated with sparkling iridescent mosaic tiles and then there is the sea at the end of the street!

What makes this villa unique

This house is very special as it is so close to the village of Sitges and yet in a quiet exclusive neighbourhood next to the sea and best beaches. The promenade is fantastic for walking into town and heaven for children with roller blades, skateboards and bikes. There is no need to use a car here. The house itself is a beautiful traditional Spanish house with a homely atmosphere and a lush garden with a swimming pool, table tennis etc to keep you amused.

Great space for groups

  • 5 of 5

7 friends and I just spent a week at this home. It's a great space for groups with many different outdoor and indoor spaces to eat or hang out, all together or in smaller groups. There are also several balconies overlooking the sea or the pool. The pool was clean and refreshing. The house is surrounded by a wall and a mature garden, so it feels like a very private world. The kitchen was extremely well outfitted with high end cookware, utensils and appliances which made cooking in a breeze.

The location was perfect. One block from the beach (where you can rent chair and grab a drink or snack at the beach bar) and an easy walk or trolley/taxi ride to town and the train station. For those of you with kids, it's a very calm and kid friendly beach. Barcelona is 30 minutes away by train and they run every 20 minutes or so. I rented a bike which made trips to town and the train station really easy. There is a bus to and from the airport that is just a few blocks from the house.

The house had lots of other amenities. Ping pong, foosball, tennis rackets, golf clubs, parlor games.. anything you could want. The varied artwork was a nice touch. Someone came in to clean 3 times while we were there.

The downstairs is not air conditioned, but 4 of the upstairs bedrooms are. The temperature wasn't an issue even though we were there during a hot spell because the house is very well ventilated. The only major issue we had was mosquitos. Either sitting outside, or inside with the doors and windows open, we were easy targets. While sprays and coils helped, we couldn't seem to catch a break. While I know there may be environmental concerns, my one suggestion would be professional spraying to eliminate the problem.

Overall it was a great spot, and I'd return if I planned to be in the area with a group.The owner and manager were incredibly responsive and easy to work with in advance and onsite.

Gorgeous place

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place and would definitely re-book.

It's beautifully decorated with interesting art work and furniture from around the globe.

The garden is lovely and well maintained.

Kitchen is well equiped and very clean.

Bedrooms and lounge areas are spacious.

IT's a couple of mins walk to the beach - the sea is clean and warm and it's a safe, family environment.

Stunning spacious seaside town house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa del Mar for a week's holiday with our 4 kids aged 17-20. It's a prefect place for a Mediterranean holiday, sea and nightlife nearby but not so close you can't escape from it. Its beautifully decorated with a stunning garden and pool, great bedrooms, fabulously well appointed kitchen, lots of space to hang out. Sitges is a good looking town with decent shops and restaurants and some pretty active nightlife. Barcelona is an easy drive or train ride away. We hired a car mid week and wished we'd had one from the start as it made food shopping and getting around the area much easier. We drove to Barcelona twice to visit the Fondation Miro, the Picasso museum and take in some nightlife. Parking was easy.We were in Sitges for Fiesta Major, the best fireworks any of us had ever seen. Altogether a brilliant week.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time in your Villa. It is perfect for a truly dazzling holiday. The proximity to the sea made it the best beach holiday we have ever had. SO easy to go to the beach for a swim and drink and then come back and relax by your lovely pool. The house is decorated in a artistic and cool way and we enjoyed the space and abilty to have quiet times on the various balconies and rooms.

Biking into Sitges was a thrice daily event for shopping and browsing as so easy to get to along Paseo. We played tennis really nearby and rented our bikes just near the house.

We enjoyed a lot of the local restaurants by the sea and had delicious fish most days.

Thank you so much. It is a perfect house in a perfect place.

My favourite holiday home ever, wish it was mine!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in several different houses in Sitges in the past I can honestly say this is the best of the best. The location is ideal; minutes from the beach, far enough from the hustle and bustle of the village but close enough to walk it or even better cycling in with the bicycles provided. The house itself is absolutely stunning, truly the most beautiful house I've ever stayed in, I wish it was mine. Highlights are the very well equipped modern kitchen (no need to buy salt, pepper and herbs etc) and the barbecue area, a great outdoor chill out space to make the most of. When the beach felt too hot or more crowded than we liked the pool came into it's own. I look forward to many many more stays. Part of me thought I might not write this review as I fear it will get booked out and we won't get a slot!
