Great apartment - FANTASTIC location!
Firstly I just want to say that it was a real pleasure to meet Irmgard. She is a truly lovely person - extremely helpful and very kind, but also completely un-intrusive. She made sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed for our stay. The outstanding feature of the apartment is its location - right overlooking the beach and sea - you can fall asleep at night listening to the sound of the waves. The apartment is just perfect - great bathroom - very clean and nice shower, well equipped kitchen, the main living space is large and leads onto a fantastic balcony overlooking the beach. In addition there is a drying room which is useful for getting towels and swimwear dry at the end of each day without cluttering up the balcony. The town of Vilanova is really lovely with many supermarkets and some nice places to eat on the harbourside. We bought food from the supermarket for lunch/breakfast and ate out in the evenings - the supermarket food (fruit and vegetables etc) is delicious and very inexpensive compared to the UK. It is very easy to get up to Barcelona either by bus or train for a bit of sightseeing. The beach is truly wonderful - we were here in June and there were very few English tourists - it mainly seems to be local people on the beach which gives it a wonderful atmosphere. We also joined in with a local T'ai Chi session on the beach recommended by Irmgard which was free and extremely enjoyable. I would really recommend this property and can't wait to visit again.
