      Is accommodation in Carrer Scilia recommandable?

      Barcelona Jan 6, 2015 at 10:16 AM

      Hi @ all, We'll stay 4-5 days in Barcelona at the end of February. Would you recommend Carrer Sicilia? Is this a good place to discover the city? Sagrada Familia doesn't seem to be too far, but I'm not yet informed about the City, to be true. Any suggestions? As always, your helpful answers will be well appreciated. Thanks in advance and a happy new year to you all. Nic

    • Beach towns near Barcelona

      Barcelona Jan 4, 2015 at 3:20 PM

      Hi all. This my first posting on VT. We are two retired couples traveling to Spain and Portugal next September for almosta month. We are flying into Barcelona on Sept 6 and thought it would be nice to head to one of the nice beach towns north or west of Barcelona for the first few days as we settle into the time zone! A nice sea view would be lovely, and somewhere where we can easily walk out to local restqurants . I've done some research and can't decide between somewhere like Tossa de mar in the Costa Braga or maybe around d Cambrils in Costa Dorada. Thoughts would be so appreciated. We were not planning to rent a car until later in our trip, so we will be making our way from Barcelona Into. Airport. Then we would move on to Barcelona., Madrid, etc. Before heading to Portugal.

    • What to do in Barcelona

      Barcelona Jan 23, 2015 at 11:28 AM


      My husband and I (both in our early 30s) are going to be in Barcelona mid May for 4-5 nights. What's the best are to stay in? I was looking at maybe the Gothic Quarter?
      Are there places we should take day trips to nearby that we can take the train to?
      Is 4 nights enough or do we need 5? We will be taking the train to France for the rest of the trip.

      We are hoping to travel from Barcelona to Madrid on Saturday September 12. I have found flights, but was wanted to check out the options by train. I am at the renfe site (I think) and can't seem to get a schedule for that day. It seems to be asking me to change dates. Does that make sense that there would be no train on a Saturday between Barcelona and Madrid? Anyone able to help? Thanks so much!

      Having visited Palamos before I am looking to drive down this summer with my jet ski in tow and am looking for launch sites/ramps. Is there anyone out there who can help me out. I will probably be staying in either Palamos or La Fosca.

    • la fosca revisited

      by mecerc68 Online Now Oct 2, 2006 at 5:31 AM

      Returning to la fosca next summer after some 30 years since holidaying there as a child, and i was wanting to find the place we used to stay, but have no idea how the place has changed over that period. To make matters worse i can't even remember the name of the place we stayed even thought we were there for a few years on the trot.
      I will give a description and see if it rings bells with anyone.
      The complex was at the top of the hill, just beyond a small square where we used to but bread etc from a small row of shops, it was up a dirt road on the right hand side(used to find chicken feet and heads at the start of this track--amazing what you remember), the complex was basically 1 villa and about 16 apartments with swimming pool and old metal swing park, the family who owned the complex also lived there in a house with large orchards etc, 3 gnerations of the family lived there, the granfather was the owner i believe. The whole complex was surrounded by fields at this time, and a campsite was close by i think.
      The swimming pool and a wooden slatted slide and was seperated from the park by a large hedge. We stayed in the villa and the apartments, basic by todays standards i think.
      The name of the place was Geronis or Geronas or something like that named after the granfather and i believe it is still there but now run by the grandson who i knew as a boy.
      Does this sound familiar to anyone??
      Done all the searches online but just can't find it.



    • Palamos/La Fosca in August with teenagers

      by Aislingwhite Online Now Feb 19, 2006 at 2:32 PM

      We are travelling to La Fosca and staying at a site called Camping Kings in August. I was a bit concerned about a posting that said Palamos was "not very nice". I want some traditional spanish food, good weather, a nice beach or two, a good local market and some beach activity nearby such as boat trips or watersports. The campsite seems to have informal "nightlife" ie: disco/pool & snooker/quiz's etc which will suit our kids (we are quite happy to have a walk and a glass of wine in the evening)- is the area likely to suit us? I would hate the Lloret type of built up resort (I am sure its fine out of season but must be hell in August), any tips, advice, information, ideas for days out etc etc would be very welcome.
