Rental Home
Ca l'Helena was an old barn which has been renovated to integrate a bright, warm house with a capacity for eight guests, which offers all the services and comforts necessary for enjoying the tranquillity of the surroundings to the full. The house is located in the village of Castellet, presided by the 10th Century castle, surrounded by woodland, vineyards, the Foix reservoir, and the great variety of ecosystems which have arisen along its shores.

Delightful stay - I would love to return!
We just left Ca l'Helena today and I miss it already. Quim was a gracious, accommodating and helpful host. He gave us excellent recommendations, worked with my timing when my flight was VERY late, and even accompanied me to the winery where I had my first tour to make sure I found it. We followed his restaurant suggestions throughout our stay and they were never wrong! The house itself is very large and well-equipped, peaceful, has a lovely reservoir view and is in an excellent location to tour Penedes. It's very easy to get to Vilafranca by car for restaurants; the little village of L'Arboç has a supermarket; and there are cava cellars within 10 minutes of the house, too. We spent most of our time outside sitting by the pool, or on the higher up terrace just watching the birds and the reservoir. It's a nice walk through the village up to the castle in the morning and evening. This house is great for a group or a family because it is spacious and everyone would have enough room. Good wifi and hairdryer, too! I highly recommend it.

Relaxing & Gorgeous House
The house is spacious, comfortable, yet cozy. The owners were great to deal with. We actually got lost on our way to the house and they came to find us and we followed them. Very friendly and serviceable. The house is 55 km from Barcelona (45 minutes) so you do need a car even if you plan to catch the train across in the town across the freeway. We went in May but the pool was still cold for us to use. There are no restaurants around this town.

Casa super acogedora
Recomiendo 100% esta casa. Mira que se ve bonita en la web pero es aún más impresionante en directo. Ha sido un fin de semana espectacular, ha sido un verdadero lujo descubrirla....los dueños se nota que miman al huesped, te sientes como en casa, no le falta detalle.

A perfect spot to begin and end our days of exploring the surrounding countryside.
Four of us arrived at Ca l'Helena to find this beautiful property attended by our very friendly and helpful host, Quim. We had taken him up on his offer to stock our kitchen with food, water, and coffee for our first day, and found he had provided the perfect assortment of things for us to enjoy, including a bottle of sparkling Cava to celebrate our arrival. Quim was most helpful in answering any of our questions and making suggestions for activities we might enjoy, including two human tower-building events, which were simply amazing. The house is charming, well-kept, and sturdy. It was well-stocked with kitchen equipment, linens, laundry facility, maps and brochures, and, although we never used it, a t.v. and dvd's. Castellet is a tiny village, with one restaurant (unfortunately it was closed for remodeling during our stay) and no shops, so a car is probably a necessity when staying at Ca L'Helena. But it's a lovely little town to walk about, with a castle up the hill, and a fish preserve down below. We spent our days exploring Catalonia in every direction and returned most evenings to prepare our dinner and relax on the patio at Ca L'Helena. It was an added bonus to have the swimming pool. All of us highly recommend Ca L'Helena.

Reservoir view
A lovely Spanish house in a very quiet village street. Very well equipped and spacious open plan downstairs area and 4 en suite upstairs bedrooms. Peaceful and calm with bijou pool and pretty townhouse garden and top terrace with stunning view of castle and reservoir. Easy access to coast and nearby towns. Hope to return and would thoroughly recommend. Owner Quim was charming and most helpful. A lovely week here.

A wonderful stay.
We have chosen Ca I"Helena apartment, and afterwards we never regretted our choise. The apartment itself is very comfortable, with a wonderful swimmig pool, which is very good, if you travel with children. It is also very useful, that the apartment has a kitchen, so you can cook yourselves. We also enjoyed the silent privacy, and the precence of different places of interest nearby. Everything is very good, the only advice is that the travellers should have a car, because it can be quite difficult to reach another place on foot.

About the neighborhood
Castellet enjoys a privileged geographical location that offers plenty in terms of activities and excursions. The village is just 15km from Vilanova i la Geltrú and its beautiful sandy beaches, 15km from Vilafranca del Penedés - the capital of the wine producing region 'el Penedès'-, 20km from Sitges, and 60km from Barcelona.Castellet has a restaurant and a small store where you can buy wine, honey and marmalade. The village still moves at a different pace. At 12 o'clock the van from the neighbouring town's bakery arrives and honks, and anyone wanting fresh bread comes out to the van and buys it.The area around Castellet is perfect for beautiful walks, castle visits, hiking, cycling, riding, etc. The natural park Parque Natural del Foix is particularly well known amongst bird watchers, who come here from far flung places to pursue their hobby. The region's main activity revolves around wine growing and everything associated with it. Many of the local wineries and cava producers offer tours and tastings. The neighbouring villages are famous for their traditional Catalan celebrations. During the summer a different village festival takes place almost every weekend, with traditional music, food, Castells (human towers), Gegants (giant puppets worn by people dancing through the streets), Diables (devils that run through the streets setting off firecrackers), etc.
