Like a delicious fine wine, a luxury escape is often better when shared with friends. So, rather than sending them a time-honoured ‘wish-you-were-here’ postcard, that you inevitably beat home due to the speed (or lack thereof) of foreign postal systems, why not take your friends with you? A perfect retreat in which to enjoy the company of your nearest and dearest is Costa Barcelona Villas’ Can Girona Golf. This romantic private hideaway situated in the hills near Barcelona is very serene and best of all can host an incredible 20 of your closest friends and family – perfect!
I always feel Spain is a friendly and welcoming country and a visit there is guaranteed to offer you the chance to bask in the sunshine, experience a lively, traditional fiesta or two and enjoy countless delicious local meals and wines – what’s not to love? To make a stay in sunny Spain even more enjoyable, I have found a great company: Costa Barcelona Villas that provides opportunities for a wide range of short and long term residential and commercial property rentals as well as the opportunity to buy property in the beautiful Sitges region of Spain. As well as renting or buying a stunning property, Costa Barcelona Villas also offers daily cleaning services, catering services (so you needn’t lift a finger during your stay if you don’t want to!), vehicle hire, chauffeurs, in-villa spa pampering, baby-sitting and the hire of children’s essentials like cots, highchairs and strollers as well as arranging trips and excursions for you (tip: try a winery tour or create your own cava!) and they can even organise your wedding if you so wish! Costa Barcelona Villas really does seem to offer the whole package.
Sitges itself is a cosmopolitan, coastal town in Spain, about 35 minutes south-west of Barcelona, which benefits from over three hundred glorious sunny days a year. Numerous beaches stretch out along Sitges’ coastline which is protected by the Garraf Massif mountain range and there are plenty of local activities to do as well as sumptuous Spanish and Catalonian cuisine, restaurants and lively nightlife to enjoy. Easy to access by road from Barcelona and just 15km from Barcelona Prat International Airport, Sitges is the ideal location to purchase a holiday home or simply just to escape to for a few days.
So, to the villa: the luxury villa that took my fancy was: the peaceful and secluded Can Girona Golf that’s 10 minutes away from the beach, with a large private pool and with incredible panoramic views over sea and the fairways of the exclusive Terramar golf course (don’t forget to bring your clubs!). This modern hideaway is situated just behind the large, luxury Dolce Hotel in one of the most exclusive areas of Sitges with 24h security. The villa sleeps up to an impressive 20 guests in 8 bedrooms (3 on the first floor, 3 on the ground floor and 2 are next to the pool in a small separate apartment). Inside there is plenty of room for you and your guests to spread out and relax with a large open plan dining room and lounge; fully fitted and spacious kitchen and roofed terrace with seating area – perfect for a sun-downer cocktails! And outside you will find an outdoor kitchen next to the BBQ area with its own fridge (meaning there’s no need to take it in turns to head back into the house for ice cold refreshments – a definite plus!), as well as the fully enclosed private garden and large swimming pool with stunning views. This villa only neighbours one other property making it a great hidden retreat, though you’re never too far from anything either as you can easily walk to the golf course, spa, cocktail bar and Sitges sandy beaches.
So all that’s left for you to do, is to simply find 19 friends that fancying joining you in your own little slice of secluded luxury overlooking the sapphire blue Balearic Sea – trust me, I don’t think it will be difficult!
