Sitges holidays offer the opportunity to visit a beautiful cosmopolitan resort on the Costa Dorada; a perfect choice if you’re looking for a more soulful, traditional twist on the usual, more conventional Spanish beach resort.

Tourists have been taking holidays in Sitges for over a century, but it wasn’t until a lot more recently that the mass tourist market grabbed a hold – it is known by many as the Spanish St Tropez. It has narrow streets, pretty promenade areas complete with intimate tapas bars and seafront restaurants and an amazing 17 golden sandy beaches.

Sitges holidays have a very exclusive feel to them, with many mansions and villas some of which have been known to have been owned by famous Barcelona footballers, and has many upmarket hotels – it is also a renowned area for avant garde art and houses many art galleries and museums.
