Our home

From our home you can discover Barcelona, Tarragona and most of Catalonia. On top of this, you will enjoy our lovely beach! Warm sunny weather all year round! It's a long time that we live here, so we can advice you on how to get the most of you holidays!

We are from Barcelona but decided to move to Vilanova because it has the best of both worlds: you can go to BCN very easily and still live in a more human sized environment, with a wonderful beach and many hiking paths to enjoy the nature and breath!

This is our first home and, generally speaking, can only be swapped if it's a simultaneous home swap, unless you are only 2 people and want to stay in a studio we have on the second floor of our home , which we usually use to host travellers, friends and relatives.

Three bedroom 1900 house with a patio to eat outside in a leafy and pedestrian street, right in the centre of our city, with everything at a hand reach, from the market to the sea, shops, cafés, train station, library, beach, ...a supermarket round the corner and the best ice creams you have ever eaten at less than one minute walk!

On the groundfloor there is a double bedroom with bunk beds 90x200cm, a bathroom with bathtub and an open plan kitchen/living room that opens into the patio, where we have a wood table and seats to eat al fresco. It's very unusual in Spain to have a patio with plants and a lemon tree in the center of any city, and we feel blessed for it!

On the first floor there is a master bedroom with it's private terrace and bathroom, with a huge 180x200cm double bed. Plus our "library" : a room full of books where we work, read and study, with a big desk and a pull out sofa 140x200cm.

We have also 4 other options to offer you, listed in this website and free at different periods of the year:
1)- a sunny and comfortable flat in BARCELONA, where we can host up to 4 people,( available only in August).

2)- a county house in France, ideally located to tour all Brittany and discover its landscapes, beaches, old stone towns and Celtic dance and music festivals. Available most of the time.

3)- an apartment in Torredembarra, a lovely town by the Costa Dorada, (available all year round except for July and August. References about flat with pool belong to this flat).

4)- a studio with its own private kitchenette, bathroom and terrace in the top floor of our main home, that can accommodate two people.

The last 3 collage pictures belongs to these homes, that you can see in detail if clicking in their adds.

Who we are

  1. We are a family with two grown up sons. Although we are four, we might be in between 1 to 5 people travelling on our party, depending on the dates, place and how many beds have you got! :-) Seriously speaking, as I have more free time, sometimes it's just myself travelling! And sometimes my sister joins us.

    My partner is a teacher, I'm a psychologist working in the educational field and our two sons are 19 and 20 both University students. My sister is a lawyer and his son is at University.

  2. LOOKING either for a simultaneous home swap or a non simultaneous one. Ski resorts always welcome!
    In Europe, we love the UK (specially London and the Cotswolds), Italy, The French Alps and Paris, Switzerland, Saint Petersburg, Budapest, Praha, Germany, Bulgaria ... We could also be open to +3 week home swaps in Vancouver, USA, Asia, Caribbean, Mauritius & Reunion.
    Open for long weekends in the south of France or the north of Spain, and for short breaks and Easter holidays in Europe.
    These are our priorities, but make us an offer and we will think about it!! On the other hand, we could only consider travelling to Australia for a Christmas holiday.

  3. If you have a cat, we will be happy to look after him!
    We are also used to both, host travellers at home and do delayed home swaps.

    We LOVE travelling and have exchanged our homes +40 times at the time I update this add. We are very respectful with other people's homes, as we are sure you will be with ours, and we always provide travellers with information about our home and our area. We answer to all the offers we receive and sometimes we offer you to keep our details for future exchanges. As we have more than one home, it's easy to arrange delayed home swaps.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Vilanova is a safe and lovely city, with all services at a hand reach and very well linked with Barcelona and Tarragona by a really cheap, frequent and comfortable train.

It has two wonderful beaches, a long promenade by the sea, cosy cafés, good restaurants, lots of shops and a lovely old town. We live right in the centre of the city, in a leafy pedestrian street, next to the best ice cream maker I have ever known! Supermarket is just round the corner, the market is at 5 minutes walking, good bakery at one minute walking,...

If you want to enrol your kids in summer activities with local kids, we can provide you with information.

Best restaurants
Many places to eat, we will provide you with information!
Where to go shopping
You have a variety of shops in Vilanova, but I imagine you will prefer shopping in Barcelona! There is also a big outlet half way, in Viladecans, where you can find expensive brands at less than half its original price.
Your area's cultural and historical landmarks
So many that you will be spoilt by the choice!
Local walks
Our favourite: walk from Vilanova to Sitges, by a coastal path.
Places you love to exercise
By the beach!
Top day trips
Barcelona, Tarragona, Port Aventura, Montserrat, Poblet and Prades mountains, the Pyrenees, The Ebro's delta,...the list is endless!!
