Villa With Private Pool And Jacuzzi (Not Heated), Mountain Location

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Nov-2016
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, Jacuzzi 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.

Excellent villa!

  • 4 of 5

We had wonderfull time in this beautiful villa. Especially children enjoyed the pool. Villa was very clean and very peacefull except those barking spanish dogs.... We didn´t find the fourth bedroom, which was mentioned in the website. So if you are reserving this villa for 8 person it will be crowded. The neighbour said that the outside jacuzzi is not working (motor finito or something like that...?) but it was working, though was not so clean. Maybe it was not used during wintertime. The owner was very helpfull and those Sitges beaches and Barcelona sites were excellent! You will need a car to get to those places. We really can recommend this villa for everybody and especially for families with little kids! And yes, there are some nasty mosquitos but these creatures belongs to nature. If you really want to get to know more about mosquitos, welcome to Northern Finland!!! ;-) Thank You Encarna and Simon! Hope all the best for your business!!!

Our fantastic holiday in Catalonia

  • 5 of 5

We are lucky enough to have stayed in this Fabulous Villa a couple of times, we love it. It is appointed to a very high standard and Simon the owner has created a beautiful home from home, making your stay a very comfortable and restful experience, nothing like the usual holiday rentals we have experienced! It is located in a really great area with access to so many places of interest, and in amongst the wine growing area of my favourite bubbly Cava!! You have the best of both worlds as the bustling town of Sitges is less than 1/2 hr away and Barcelona not much further. The train from Sitges is also very useful. The main motorway is only a short drive away and there is a supermarket not far and a little convenience shop up the road. All in all a great location for a wonderful holiday touring the beautiful countryside steeped in history. Recommended.

Perfect family time

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is a gorgeous villa near to Sites. The home is furnished with all the basics you'll need in the kitchen (lots of extra dishes and glasses), extra towels, linen, satellite TV, DVD,WIFI, and a washing machine, (that was a major help for our two week holiday). Everything was very clean. A cleaner came halfway during our 2 week stay. The pool and jacuzzi were great and the kids enjoyed them to the full, thats where we all spent our most time! The key holder was very helpful and Simon was a gem when our 8 year old daughter was ill and he offered to translate at the doctors (and did) and that meant so much to us as we were soconcerned about our daughter..

I would say that you could not find a more helpful owner. We would definitely go back to Sitges as the town is amazing, just remember siesta times :)

Thank you Simon once again and it is a shame that you live in the north of Spain because we would love to have met you.

A special big thank you from our daughter

Owner's Response: Hello Quicksilver Thank you very much for you comments and I hope everything is ok with your Daughter who must say was very brave, and honestly it was noting to translate on the phone for you (all I would like to see is more Doctors speaking English in Spain, as there main industry are the tourists and the English are the number 1 visitors every year) I hope to see you again at my villa Take care Simon

Fantastic !!!

  • 1 of 5

I killed myself 2 mice , the owner of the house already knew the infestation of mice. Full of mosquitos,windows without net, if you book less then 14 days you will not have bedding chance, don't forget take your water with you, you won't find bottle of complementary water in the house if you want to buy nearest supermarket 5 km far away. If you arrive on Sunday you have to drive all the way to sitges to find supermarket. The person who gave us the keys couldn't speak a word of English!!!

Thanks again for good time

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you have not enjoyed your holiday at my villa and that it did not meet you expectations. I have spoken with the cleaner, previous guests who left on your arrival day and the guests that arrived on your departure day and none of them have seen any field mice at all in my villa. You are stating that I knew about an infestation of mice which is complete lies, which I am not very happy about. I do however realise that a field mouse can come in to any house that is situated in the country side either in Spain or in the UK and I will look into installing some child safe traps around the garden for the following season. I would have liked that you would have called me on my contact numbers during your stay to discuss this, because if I do not know about something then I can not fix it for my guests. In hot countries there are mosquitos, they are one of Gods creations and are out of my control, I do not advertise that there are mosquito nets at the windows, most people bring creams and buy plug ins and have never complained about this before. I will how ever be installing mosquito nets at the window for the forthcoming seasons. I do not advertise that there is a welcome pack on arrival, however my key holder said that she gave you a cold bottle of water from her own fridge. I will however be offering a welcome pack to my customers for the forthcoming season. There is a local shop which opens form 7am to 22.00 hrs only 800 metres away from the villa which is stated on the information sheet which your was given on arrival and they open 7 days a week. I am afraid that not all the supermarkets open in Spain every day like in England and again that is out of my control. The person as you say who gave you the keys is a lovely 60 year old lady who deserves some respect and no she does not speak English but she understood enough to give you a free bottle of water from her own fridge. If you visit another country it is always a good idea to try and the local language as not everyone in the world has to speak English. As far as the linen goes we change the sheets and towels for guest that stay 14 nights as stated on the advert and we offer a self catering holiday not a five star hotel with daily bedding and cleaning services. I think that maybe next time you book a holiday you should spend a little more that the 17 pounds per person that you spent with me and go to a five star hotel and then you might receive the services you are looking for from me.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.

There is an outside table and 6 chairs also a sofa and 1 armchair and a single bed to relax in the evenings.
