The Experience

Welcome to Sitges, the ‘Saint Tropez of Spain’. Picasso and his set used to come here, drawn by its sands and languorous charm. In a leafy avenue one minute from the water’s edge is a 1920s house, beautiful, peaceful, restful and big enough to get lost in with high ceilings, shuttered windows, private balconies.

Find herbs and spices for your kitchen, toys and games for children, books to read, logs for the fire – and more: table football, a gazebo (wicker sofas, romantic chimenea) and cushioned seats under the trees; the garden is a sanctuary. Take a splash in the salt water pool, relax on a lounger, have a sociable lunch on the poolside decking, or the lawn. As for Sitges, it has everything: wineries, restaurants, festivals, fireworks, culture and élan.

Return to light and airy bedrooms (some with balconies overlooking the sea) all with good art and more books.

Reviews

Beautiful home - very well equipped - ideal for our family of 11 - so close to the beach and town too - thank you for sharing your home with us

Jen, Chesterfield

Lovely time, gorgeous villa! So near the beach. Great pool and delightfully decorated and comfortable house. Highly recommend it.

Jane, Pentridge, Dorset

Villa del Mar is a blissful place for multi-generational family holidays and reunions, where you can have masses of fun and spend those special times together. The villa is a stone's throw from the beach, with a bar and restaurants a 10-minute walk away too. You really get the best of both worlds here!

Paula, Sawday's Inspector

I am back again with the family. This is one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed in and we love Sitges. The house is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is huge and full of light and lovely large sofas and huge telly for casual lounging. I keep stealing your lemons from the tree Christian. So sorry! But I will give you a jar when I have turned them to confit. The beach being so close is a joy and your swimming pool an added luxury.Catalunya is a fabulous place to visit and Sitges is one of its jewels. You could not have a lovelier place to stay than in this beautiful house. Thank you!

James, Montcuq

A stones throw from the beach and a short stroll to the town centre this beautiful house sits within manicured gardens and feels quiet and secluded whilst still being close enough to all the bars, restaurant and entertainment Sitges is rightly famous for. I visited during Carnival when the historic picturesque streets come to life with revellers (an event I would highly recommend). The house itself is spacious with good communal spaces which open onto the gardens and plenty of well appointed bedrooms. Sitges is a fantastic place to visit and Villa del Mar is the perfect base to enjoy it from

Location

The neighbourhood

Just a short walk from the house to the promenade for strolling, chatting, watching sunsets - children can roller skate or scoot. There is a plethora of sandy beaches to choose from, some good for surfing, others where you can hire paddle boards or learn to sail. The old fishing village has narrow winding streets and a lovely atmosphere, there are superb restaurants down on the Marina.

Local points of interest from Christian X

  • There are many fiestas and festivals around Sitges. Corpus Christi in June when the streets are festooned with flower petal designs, St Juan at end of June to celebrate the beginning of summer by having picnics, playing music, fireworks on beach.
  • Fiesta: The biggest fiesta is Fiesta Mayor at end of August which is a huge party with Catalan dancing and human towers as well as drummers and the most amazing fireworks display. Another similar fiesta is Santa Tecla at end September .
  • La festa de la Verena is a wine festival show casing local bodegas beginning October.
  • Sitges International Film Festival in October where films are showing all day in several different locations. The theme is fantasy and it ends with a Zombie walk! Jan 5th the 3 Kings and a superb procession arrive with sweets for all the children.
  • Within a couple of hours of Sitges you can ski for the day at La Molina, hike in the Pyreenees or visit the monastery and mountain of Montserrat. Other interesting sites are Poblet Monastery and Santa Cruz Convent all good for day trips.
  • The vineyards and wineries of the Penedes region and cava area are all close by and private tours can be arranged. There are many mountain biking routes in the Garraf hills above Sitges and bikes can be hired.

Introducing

Christian X

Christian and Benjamin came to Spain with their two small children, initially for a sabbatical. Then they fell in love with the area, found this modernist house and completely renovated it. They lived in it until 2013 when they had to move back to London. They come here as often as they can (hence the homely atmosphere) and love to share it with guests.
