About this listing
Our House in Garraf is completely renovated and tastefully decorated, but its walls are over 50 years of history. It has always been our summer home but we can not enjoy it as before. Come and enjoy the tranquility
Would like to feel the aroma of mountain flowers at the time you feel the breeze? Garraf is a lovely village 5 minutes from Sitges by train, 30 minutes from Barcelona airport and 20 minutes by car.

Interaction with Guests
I always meet my guests to welcome them at home. During their stay I contact with them by message to verify that they are having a great time.
The setting is magnificent: nature, calmness, smell of the sea, tranquillity, yoga and meditation, fish, sun, nap in the shade, dinner under the stars, an ice cream, walk on the beach, eating a paella in front of the marina, playing tennis, hear birds and crickets, the smell of pine.
Garraf is very small so there are no shops to buy , only Restaurants, Bars and Pharmacy. For buying I always recommend two options : if you travel by car, go to Castelldefels where there are many shopping centers just 10 minutes from Garraf . If you don't use a car , take the train just one stop to Sitges , where the market , supermarket and other shops are next to the train station. At home we have a shopping cart for your convenience . For any emergencies that you need , you can (email hidden) Antonio , 3 minutes from home.
By Garraf is obvious that one moves on foot, to walk along the beach or mountain routes. To get out of town and have to use the car or train which is 5 minutes from home

Everything was as described, even better. Olga was a very good and nice host and we knew that we could contact her any time, if something would have been wrong. But it wasn't. We just had a nice, relaxed holiday. Thank you!
We had a lovely time in the quiet town of Garraf.. (Where the train prevails in sound) the house was close to the sea. The only thing we did not know was that if you wanted to go for small groceries you had to catch a train. The house was very clean and we could use all that was.. Even beach towels. Because Garraf is a tiny tiny place not all trains stop. So you have to figure out which train stops or do not stop AND from wich platform. Olga was very nice and helpful. The contact all went very smooth and friendly! Thank you Ouafaa & Anouk
Olga's place is as good as you can expect from reading her add. She ensures to make you feel looked after. There are a variety of details that give the house its character. Garraf is a charming little village just off the limits of Barcelona but fair away enough to make you forget about the noise and stress of the big city; just mind the fact that the railway is just meters away from the coast, so Garraf feels the trains passing along: after a short while you will get used to it.
You can wake up in the morning an walk to the beach, making an obliged stop at Antonio's Bar for an invigorating coffee or a glass of juice. There is no grocery store in Garraf, but taking a short ride by train to either Sitges or Casteldefelds will sort that out. If you drive, you'd better off going to Casteldefelds rather than Sitges even though the road to Sitges is of great beauty, just for shopping it's not worth all the bends.
El Bar de Antonio and el bar del pescador near the beach serve good see food.
My 2 little children loved spending time at Olga's place and in Garraf. My wife, well she loved the amount of details and all the interesting books Olga has in there.
There is a bit for every taste in this wonderful property.
Olga, we look forward to visiting your house again.

We spent 10 days in Garraf with my girlfriend and baby boy Eliel who's just about bit more than 1.5 years old. Olga's apartment was really nice and clean and the location was good for us. Our boy especially loved the large terrace and spent most of the time playing there. Reasonably short train trip to both Sitges and BCN, especially if you are not travelling on daily basis.
There are no supermarket or grocery story on Garraf which means you'll need to do a bit more planning than living in the city with shops on every corner. Apartment is located near by the railway so you will definitely hear trains passing. We kinda used to it and it wasn't bother us too much but something to keep in mind though.
Olga was very helpful and communication was really easy. We could go there again some time in the future.
Olga's house is a gem. It's beautiful, very comfortable and, yes, looks even better than in pictures. Olga is so lovely, so welcoming and gives such a thought to every small detail that we felt like we were invited to the house of a very good friend.
Going to Sitges for shopping might seem like a nuisance, but it's a very short trip and makes a nice break from quietness of Garraf.
Trains did not bother us at all. Mosquitoes did, but not too much.
We will definitely come back.
150 % Recommendable !
we stayed at this beautiful, little house in garraf for a few nights.

We would like to emphasize that olga is a very friendly and professional host and especially the communication with her always went smoothly and in time.
every room is full of details , .............especially the kitchen !
we felt like home !
thank you ****
This is the second stay I've had with Olga, and she is just the most wonderful. The home is even BETTER than she describes it. The perfect little getaway if you're looking for a nice, quiet, lovely place near the beach. I very much enjoyed the four days I stayed in Olga's lovely home and had everything I needed to have the perfect getaway vacation. As other reviewers have noted, you do need to go into Sitges to access a grocery store, but it is a very short train ride and located right outside of the train station. Garraf is perfectly located close to Barcelona and the airport or any of the other beach towns south of the city such as Sitges. Can't recommend this little house enough!
