SITGES : Not only is it beautiful, but it offers 4km of sandy beaches and bays, a busy festive calendar with some truly amazing fiestas, first-rate tourist facilities, dozens of bars, cafes, restaurants and some great designer shops. Sitges is sophisticated, chic and cool, is on the doorstep of Barcelona, and with more than 300 sunny days per year, is a great place to visit all year round.
Sitges has been described as “The Jewel in The Mediterranean Crown”, a “Mediterranean Paradise”, and all of our guests have commented that, apart from having had a fab. time (of course!!), that Sitges is much better than they had imagined.
But perhaps one of the most unique qualities that Sitges has to offer is that it has such a relaxed and cosmopolitan atmosphere welcoming visitors from all over the World and all walks of life this being one of the reasons why such a large international gay-scene has developed giving Sitges its fame.

If you can’t sit on the beach for too long, other activities available in Sitges are cycling, golf, paragliding, roller-blading along the palm-fringed promenade, sailing, tennis and water-skiing.
About 15 minutes from the Town are the superb facilities of Club Natacio Sitges , where you can buy a day membership and swim in their open pool or sunbathe by the side of it, take a sauna/Jacuzzi, use the gym or if you bring your own rackets/balls you can play tennis or squash.
It is for these reasons, plus the fact that it has such a relaxed attitude, that once discovered as a holiday destination, Sitges is a place to which many people return year after year.
Sitges is also on the doorstep (25 minutes by train) of one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities … Barcelona, a buzzing, chic, cool and at times spectacular city , with it’s own extraordinary architecture (Gaudi) and fabulous beaches … a truly magnificent city which cannot be ignored and should be visited, if only for the day.
