Overview

About the property

Villa near Sitges, Barcelona, Spain - 12km Drive To Sitges Town Centre

Villa Barcelona is a very modern villa furnished to a high standard. Conveniently situated 12km drive from the coastal resort of Sitges and only 35 minutes drive from Barcelona. You will have full private use of the villa, pool and gardens. There is a private swimming pool and BBQ, sun loungers and terrace lounge area. The villa is located amongst vineyards in the heart of the Penedes region of Catalonia famous for its wine and cava production. The mountain scenery is a perfect backdrop for a relaxing holiday or offering many activities such as cycling, hiking, horse riding, site seeing and wine tasting. The villa is only 12km away from the 17 beaches of Sitges and its buzzing nightlife. Monserrat is approx 30 minutes and Portaventura also approx 45 minutes. This year 2015 the villa is being once again updated and we will be installing mosquito plug ins for all rooms and we have changed the downstairs shower, we The garden and pool has had its yearly maintenance that we do. Each and every year we try to keep this villa up to standard and we reinvest in the property 20% of the rental income so that our guests enjoy the villa and we still have great family home even though there are over 100 guests per year. We will also be offering a small welcome pack for all our guests which we have not done so far but its all about service. I am always on hand for you by phone and my neighbours who look after the villa and will great you when you arrive are near by.

As you will see from my reviews on this page that I have had one un happy customer last year and has said that my villa was infested with field mice and I knew about this, which is complete lies and I am at the moment seeking legal advice on how to take this review off the page. I can safely say that my villa does not have a field mice problem and I have had over 500 guests during 7 years of rental with a satisfaction rate of 96% and none of them have ever complained about mice. For this season I am installing child safe mouse traps in the garden just in case a field mouse does appear but this is something that could happen in any country house in the UK or Spain. The key holder and cleaner are my next door neighbours and I can assure you that they are on the case and have never seen any mice. The villa is cleaned every Saturday on arrival days which includes all the kitchen cupboards and fridge etc and even all the drawers in the whole villa so I think that the villa is cleaner than most peoples own house. The garden, pool and jacuzzi are also cleaned and the grass is cut each week so the garden is checked each week

For the season of 2014 we changed all the beds in the villa so they now only have 6 months use and also we have installed a new Sky package and flat screen television.

I will always be on hand for you 24hrs a day during your stay.

About Simon

Hi my name is Simon, I have lived in Spain for now 21 years and I have advertised my own property on this site since 2007 which is Property reference S8600

I currently live in the North of Spain and I am renovating a country palace into a hotel and it dates from 1662. You can see how it was if you wish in internet it is called CASA TORRE HORCASITAS.

I try to provided a clean self catering base for my customers with 24hr assistance during your stay and i have now 8 years experience renting this villa out and I can safely say that 95% of all my customers very happy and have some very special memories at my villa.

I look foreword to hearing from you and I hope to be able to provided a great holiday base where you and your loved ones can make some great memories.

Thanks Simon

Simon purchased this villa in 2003

Why Simon chose Alt Penedes

I fell in love with the view as I walked in the front door and could see down the hall through the kitchen and straight out to the garden pool and then the breathtaking mountains for the perfect backdrop.

The first year we had no furniture inside but we had a great garden and spent the first monies there as I think it is the best part of the villa. Little by little during the 3 years we lived there we turned it in to a great home and it is now a great family base to enjoy the peace that this villa offers.

The situation is great as you have two major highways only 7 mins and 10 mins away and the can get to anywhere you want to see what this part of the world has to offer.

I am sure you will enjoy my villa and have great holiday.

What makes this villa unique

Sitges is a great place and only 12 km away so near enough to enjoy the bustle of a up market Spanish holiday resort, but just far enough away to be relaxing and peaceful.

Barcelona is well amazing and has so much to see and is only 40 mins away by car or 45 by train form Sitges.

You have Port Aventura theme park is only 40 mins from the villa where the little kids and the big ones can have great day out.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Villa Barcelona is furnished to a great standard as a comfortable home not a holiday let. It has a very quite location but safe as you are situated in a very small development of 150 houses. With breath taking mountain views from the gardens and pool of the property. Outside: There is a huge 600m2 garden with mountain views to the rear. You have a private swimming pool and jacuzzi and a gas BBQ. There is an outside table and 6 chairs also a sofa and 1 armchair and a single bed to relax in the evenings. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Linen and towels are included, please provide your own beach towels. You are asked to leave the property clean and tidy as you will find it. On rental weeks during low season Nov-June except school holidays 50€ cleaning charge. Other: I feel the best room of the villa is the Garden and pool where you have 6 sun loungers a table and 8 chairs. The best part is the sofa chill out with its own single bed for those afternoon naps.

Great holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We have had a great time at Simon's villa. The new porche is great for relaxing and gives well needed shelter from the hot sun.

The pool and garden are also really clean and well kept.

I would recommend this villa for families and older people as there are no steps and you have a ground floor bedroom.

“Super well kept Villa with great outside area!”

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a lovely week at this well kept Villa with great outdoor area. The new covered area is perfect for keeping out of the midday sun and the pool is perfect for all ages(good shallow end for small kids and deep end for grown up’s wanting a bit of fun. The Villa is well kept and very clean. If any help is required Simon is great help and the couple next door are just superb.(TV was ok with the net box).

Lovely property, but some disappointments

  • 3 of 5

The property itself is lovely, tastefully furnished and comfortable. There are some nice touches to it, particularly the covered porch outside.

The disappointments for us were that the air conditioning unit specified in the details wasn't there, a large fan which would have been a partial compensation wasn't working, and the advertised satellite TV service only seemed to pick up local channels. There was a Sky Box present, but no satellite signal.

Lastly, the pool in the garden was smaller than in other properties we've stayed in. It meant we spent far less time in it than we would have expected.

Location-wise it worked well. Sitges is nearby, and from there it's easy to get into Barcelona, which we enjoyed very much.

Owner's Response: HI Mark, Thank you for your nice comments about the villa and I am sorry you thought that the garden was small it is 699 yards and the pool is 7.5 meters by 3.5 meters as stated on the advertisement. As faro as air conditioning is concerned the villa does not have and and it is not advertised as having it, I try to be as honest as I can be on the advert. Thanks again for your comments and I will take them on board but unfortunately I cant make the garden any bigger or the pool. Simon

The villa is situated in between two major motorways A7 connection is about 7 minutes by car and the C32 connection 10 minutes by car.
