About the location

We are ideally located, one street behind San Sebastian beach, two minutes from the historic part of Sitges and the shops, bars, caf├ęs, restaurants, art galleries, museums, live music venues.

Here are a few reviews of Sitges:

"Sitges with kids" - http://www.theguardian.com/travel/2014/may/23/sitges-catalonia-family-holiday-spain

"So what is it that makes Sitges so seductive? Its history for one thing. For several centuries its young men went to the new world (especially Cuba) to seek their fortunes, and returned home to build ornate houses to show off the money they had made. Already established by the beginning of the 20th century, Sitges was never swamped with high-rise hotels like the poorer fishing villages further south. Under the Franco dictatorship it became a discreet refuge for artists and free-thinkers.

To this day it retains a cultured ambience out of keeping with its compact size. The robust baroque church is the focal point for flamboyant processions (men on stilts, marching bands, scary pyrotechnics). Several grand old houses have been converted into galleries and museums. Barcelona is less than an hour away by bus or train; Tarragona is even closer. Though it's a Unesco world heritage site, on account of its splendid Roman ruins, it's remarkably free from tourist traffic. And besides, ticking off the sights isn't the point of Sitges. It's mainly just a place for doing nothing. Each time we go there we do less and less and it feels great."
