Situated in Barcelona's Penedés wine region and bordering the Garraf Natural Park, this recently renovated studio (on the ground-floor of a detached villa) is surrounded by birds such as golden oriole, bee-eater and european nightjar.

You're welcome to use the courtesy swimming pool (Jun-Sep), Wi-Fi and games room (pool table & ping-pong) and it's only 10km from the beautiful beaches, restaurants and nightlife of Sitges.

From here it's just a short train ride to the vibrant city of Barcelona and the area is well-served by airports in Barcelona, Reus and Girona.

Clients booking birding holidays or bird watching short breaks with Catalan Bird Tours stay here (or nearby) each night thus avoiding the inconvenience associated with nightly accommodation changes.

However, it is also available for birding day tour clients, should they wish to take advantage of an earlier start or a sometimes cheaper alternative to distant pick-up points.

"The accommodation was excellent. A self-contained flat decorated and furnished with a modern feel, spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, fully-equipped kitchen, fridge / freezer stocked with some essentials (milk, bread, butter etc.) and bathroom, similarly spotlessly clean with modern suite, very trendy and tasteful tiles.
I couldn’t have been more pleased, it makes an excellent base."

"We would thoroughly recommend you to anyone who is thinking of birding in Spain (Catalonia!) and have been telling our friends how pleased we were. The apartment was lovely and the packed lunches were delicious!

 We definitely will come back. All in all a great holiday."

"Thank you for the four days birding in Catalonia. I enjoyed every minute (I have sent a message to the Herts Group!).

The accommodation had all the facilities one could wish."

"Thank you for your hospitality. We very much enjoyed our birding trip to Spain, we want to return to see more.

Thank you for bending to my food needs also. That took extra thought and effort. We both hope your business blossoms and prospers."

Joyce and Scott Cox, USA, May 2009

Eating Arrangements

For those happy to cater for themselves for a few days then the apartment is fully-equipped for cooking and eating in, with a gas hob, electric oven, microwave and fridge/freezer as well as an outdoor BBQ (charcoal not included).

For your convenience it also comes stocked with a complimentary starter pack of basic BREAKFAST and other supplies such as bread, milk, tea, coffee, butter, jams, oil, salt, etc.

Stop-offs at local supermarkets are regularly scheduled for you to pick-up supplies.

A basic Quick Picnic lunch, designed to keep the birding going, is optional and a full home-cooked picnic based upon local Spanish and Catalan cuisine is also available during less busy periods. Dietary requests are accepted.

EVENING MEALS. Evening meals are not provided.

Depending upon the mood, options include dining at a quality restaurant in Sitges, firing up the outdoor BBQ at the villa or relaxing and eating in with a takeaway.

Local restaurants operate local opening hours, i.e. they eat late, so I am always happy to drop clients in nearby Sitges, where there are many restaurants and bars open earlier. Local public transport is irregular so return by taxi is suggested.

"Lunch was excellent, as good as the view. A great Spanish Omelette with spinach and white beans, various cheeses and meats including Manchego cheese and slices of chorizo, delicious home-made soup and some crusty bread and fruit juice to help it go down.
Very tasty and well deserved after a busy/good morning’s birding."

Martin Cracknell, UK, March 2009 (describing the full picnic option)

All birding short breaks and holidays can operate with daily pick-ups from Sitges or other nearby accommodation.

If available and you like one of the hotels I suggest, I am happy to make the arrangements for you.

Barcelona is only thirty minutes away by train and there is a regular, cheap service from Passeig de Gracia, Franca and Sants Estacio stations in the city.

Sitges Hotels

Sitges is a picturesque old Mediterranean coastal town with narrow shopping streets, beautiful beaches and lots of superb restaurants and bars.

"Stephen's villa is an easy place from which to drive to Barcelona and the coast, and is an excellent base to combine a birding trip with a family holiday."

Staying with Steve was one of the most enjoyable bits of our holiday in Spain. We really loved the accommodation best of all was the pool table and a table tennis table."
