Overview

About the property

Charming Villa nr. Sitges, 4 bed, 2 bathroom, mountain views, private pool, 1000m2 Garden,

Casa Tranquila offers very spacious, light and airy accommodation with a modern feel. It has a fabulous open plan kitchen, comfortable living area and most importantly, extensive private sunny gardens. Only a 10 minute drive from the hustle, bustle and beautiful beaches of Sitges, the villa sleeps 8 people comfortably in 4 bedrooms over 2 floors. Perfect for families, with a huge south facing 1000m2 garden and plenty of outdoor toys such as table tennis, swings and an enormous trampoline. Unusually for the Garraf area, the majority of the garden is on one level, making it usable for all.

Steps lead from the gate up to the front door on the upper level. Enter into the open plan living area, with a comfortably furnished lounge area leading into a spacious, light and airy dining area and a fantastic kitchen. There is a round dining table and chairs, as well as a piano and sliding doors opening out onto the garden. There is also a side door from the kitchen, leading out to a terrace and the swimming pool area. Large windows ensure a good view of the garden from the kitchen/dining area, with a large play area to the right and the BBQ and outdoor dining area just a few steps away.

Bedrooms 1 and 2 are on this level, as well as bathroom 1. A comfortable double room and a smaller room with a pull out double bed, both with integral wardrobes and ceiling fans. Stairs lead down to a further two bedrooms and bathroom on the ground level. Both are spacious double rooms and have an interconnecting door, with shared bathroom. Large sliding doors lead out from bedroom 3 onto a terrace which in turn, leads to the garden with the tree house at one side.

The property is located in a quiet, tranquil area with little passing traffic, giving a truly relaxing experience. Being located on the edge of the Garraf Natural park and surrounded by pine trees, the gentle summer breeze scented with fragrant pine is a welcome relief in the mid summer months.

Travel cot available on request

About Jools and Trevor

We have lived in the area for over 10 years so we know that it is a great place to spend your holidays!

We are happy to answer any questions about the property or the area, feel free to email us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Jools and Trevor purchased this villa in 2003

Why Jools and Trevor chose Sitges - Garraf

We love this area as it offers the best of everything, being easy to access and yet quiet enough to feel away from it all.

From the peaceful tranquillity of relaxing in the garden, you can be in the lovely town of Sitges in 10 minutes.

By day a great place to browse the small boutiques or while away the time with a coffee or a glass of cava; by night a place to dine out, walk the promenade or even party!!

Barcelona is a short drive/bus ride/train ride away, with museums and galleries, culture and shopping and endless narrow streets to wander.

Casa Tranquila is minutes away from some truly outstanding wine and cava cellers, being located in the DO Penedes Region. This can be reached easily by car or even by bike.

Whatever you choose to do on your holiday, you have the peace and tranquility of Casa Tranquila to come back to.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is located in a peaceful area, with no passing traffic, in the hills of the Garraf Natural Park, surrounding Sitges. With glorious sunny days and temperatures reaching the high 80's, we are fortunate to benefit from the shade of the tall pine trees and a constant refreshing breeze making the garden a pleasure to spend time in even on the hottest days!

We pride ourselves on making Casa Tranquila a home from home, with all the comforts you would expect. We feel privileged to spend time in such an amazing place, we hope you will too :)

A lovely, homely, well-equipped villa.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tranquila is a lovely, homely villa. It is very clean, well-maintained, and extremely well equiped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there this summer. Our children had fun in the pool, enjoyed playing table tennis and football, and of course made full use of the high quality wifi! The owner was very welcoming and helpful with our initial questions. The villa was perfect for the needs of our family. Highly reccommended!

Wonderful - perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tranquila lives up to its name - a wonderful house and ideal for a family holiday, suited everyone in our group regardless of age - we loved it! Excellent location if you want the best of all worlds - quiet location but not too far away from the delights of Sitges, Barcelona etc. Wonderful hosts who were very helpful at all times and we felt completely looked after - thank you :-)

Fabulous place for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful 10 days on holidays here. The villa is ideal for families as there is so much to do there. From the pool to table tennis, football and a larger trampoline this villa does exactly what it says on the tin. Very easy to get to from Barcelona and an easy drive to the city attractions while having the advantage of not being in the city. Nearby beaches are lovely to swim and the town is bustling in the evening time. Thoroughly recommend this for family holiday or just a relaxing getaway.
