Just steps away from the beach, Montroig 1 Apartment Sitges is very centrally located from all the action and nightlife of Sitges. This is the first time I have chosen to stay at an apartment, and although it is meant to feel like home, holidays are really about escaping every day so I wasn’t entirely […]
Having returned year on year to Sitges for my annual holiday from holidays, the Hotel Sitges Group offers a selection of hotels in various classes, one of which is Hotel Galeon Sitges which at one time was a budget hotel, but now delivers a much more upscale experience and a reason why I always choose […]
Hotel El Cid – Sitges is a one-star budget hotel that great value considering location, pool, rooms and breakfast options. I’ve stayed here before and rooms have been updated with in-room television and air-con, Hotel El Cid has evolved from the basic and yet still very good facilities, to providing a lot more for just […]
Great value chicken and chips with a glass of cava. An economic choice and fast food in Sitges, Restaurante El Superpollo has rotisserie chicken served with chips or salad, and choice of soft drink, beer, wine or Cava. Choose from a single piece to a whole chicken, but excellent value for single and group travellers.
Sitges, a seaside town 35 kilometres southwest of Barcelona, a perfect retreat of sand, sea and sun. Known for its liberalism and its easy lifestyle. One of my favourite destinations to unwind, and experience a real holiday. While the roots of Sitges‘ artsy reputation date back to the late 19th century, the town became a centre […]
International dining is becoming more commonplace, just because you are in Spain doesn’t mean you have to stay with tradition, despite Chinese, Indian or Arab food being available, each country still has it’s own variation on the theme. Southern California food is the choice as I prepare to dine at SoCa Restaurant and Bar in Sitges. I’ve passed […]
On the seafront, metres away from the town centre is the three-star Hotel Platjador. Even if you are not staying here, the rooftop bar is open day and night and has excellent rooftop views of the surrounding area while enjoying a sparkling glass of Cava in the open air. While the small waves roll onto the beach […]
I’ve stayed at the Hotel Galeon Pavillon on several occasions over the years, returning to improvement after improvement. It has really come a long way from the no-frills hotel it used to be. As standard, all rooms have been updated with a stylish design and comfy beds, a mini-fridge to put bottled water or anything you choose, […]
Sitges in Spain (Catalunya), the beaches and the town, my annual travels to this wonderful liberal town. Just 30-minute train ride from Barcelona gets you to this seaside town with very active ‘gay’ culture. It is lively in the summer and the beaches are welcome to all, this is a great destination that has welcomed all […]
A sea-side town just outside Barcelona, a perfect retreat of sand, sea and sun. Known for its liberalism and its easy lifestyle, it is not one would expect from a coastal resort town in Spain. I stayed in Sitges on several occasions, a quick city break and beach holiday and was pleasantly surprised, often when […]
Barcelona and Sitges, Catalunya 2006. Way back when digital cameras only took stills, a montage of clips put together to feature a city and town on the coast of Spain, this was the early years as I was falling love with this destination and making new friends in the process.
Spain is a favourite destination with its perfect climate, history and artistic and creative flair, but its the hospitality and energy of the people that make you want to come back again and again. Spanish life is much more relaxed compared to other developing nations, time for family, friends and life itself is a matter […]
