The apartment - Very clean, modern, well equipped and more spacious than the photos portray. Up 2 flights of stairs in a small apartment block. A very small balcony to the front which is perfect for a morning coffee (without kids!). It was fantastic having aircon in the heat of the Summer and a washing machine when you holiday with family. Bathroom towels and beach towels were provided.
Location - bang in the centre of Vilanova, near the main Church. Lovely restaurants and tapas bars nearby, good selection of shops, large supermarket 5 mins walk, indoor fish/meat/veg market 7 mins walk. It's a good 25 minute walk (with towels, swimrings etc!) to a wonderful, safe beach with lifeguard on duty as well as a host of restaurants just off the beachfront. There is a little train that brings you from the beach to the church - a blessing when you are hot and tired but is quite expensive if you have a family (3 euro/adult and 2 euro/child).
VPS - Yvette met us on arrival and was so welcoming. She was diligent in showing us how everthing worked and organised for taxis to take us to the train station on the last day.
Vilanova i la geltru is a wonderful Catalan town that hasn't been invaded by hordes of tourists yet is only about 40 mins by train to central Barcelona. Very little English is spoken which makes visiting another country more authentic. I would recommend the town and would recommend Vilanova Property Services. Would I go back? Yes
