Sitges – the perfect Spanish getaway

215_00

What I love about Sitges is it is so close to Barcelona yet far enough away to really disconnect. Year round Sitges is a great place to recharge your batteries. In the summer it’s mainly done on the beach whereas in winter it is in the small cafes or on Playa San Sebastian taking in the most of the winter sun. That’s why if you were to ask me where I would like to go, Sitges is just so easy because to be honest, Barcelona is pretty much in the middle of Europe and south enough to be a lot warmer than the rest of Europe in winter. A flight from London is under 2 hours and Norway 5hours.

 

The town is filled full of great museums, beaches, restaurants, and bars. One of Sitges most beautiful museums Can Farrat has just been renovated and looks amazing. There’s always many local wine bars which are great to chat the day away trying many of the local wine with locals. Later, dinner is easy because someone is always willing to point you in the right direction in this great little village. In the summer I would recommend making a reservation, however in the winter most of the time you can walk right in.

The best way in my opinion to enjoy Sitges is in a sea front apartment. You have all of the luxuries of the having a gorgeous view of the Mediterranean (sometimes even on a private terrace), and you also enjoy Sitges as if you were one of the locals. Shopping at the local markets really makes it worthwhile to have an apartment as opposed to a hotel room. It’s like night and day for you and your wallet. I love to cook and especially use local produce, fish, and meats and entertaining other guests that are visiting town.

When I rented my first apartment I never looked back, but before I never even knew holiday apartments existed… Sitges Holiday Accommodation has a wide range of holiday properties in Sitges. From basic sea front studios right up to luxury villas, and they’re local which makes it even more of a reason to use them for your next vacation in Sitges.

 

low season in Sitges doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do

Now that summer’s coming to a close I felt the need to let you know that just because there isn’t many people here, there’s tons to do. Fir starters we have the international film festival that runs every October and is mainly based on horror and sci-fi films. All of the beaches ´chiringuitos´are open until the end of October and of course open year round to enjoy, but bring a sandwich and a water. With over 300 days of sunshine a year, Sitges is the perfect destination to get away from the cold and wet wherever else in the world you are.

Sitges being just a short 30 minute train ride from Barcelona is the perfect excuse to come and visit. Visit Gaudi and Montjiuc, then bring yourself back to this wonderful sea side Spanish town. In Sitges itself you can enjoy many of the local wine bars, visiting the museum maricel, or having a nice lunch in the port Aguadolce. Although some restaurants and shops close during the winter months, there are many open all year.

I forgot to mention that our winter rates are upwards of 50% off the summertime rates and minimum stays of a short 3 nights? Sitges Holiday Accommodation offers from 1 bedroom luxury properties to 3 bedroom seafront apartments. Well the proof is in the pudding as they say, so please join us in Sitges whether it be just for the day to experience this magical town for a few nights, and who knows, you may just end up on staying.
