Sant Pere is a real Catalan town with local shops, bars and restaurants and there is a lovely outdoor market on Fridays. Here you can walk to the shops, local supermarkets, bakers, bus stop and typical local restaurants or sit in one of the pleasant terrace cafés in the main plaza just a 2 minute walk from the house. There are also many pretty walks through the vineyards or dry river beds in the surrounding countryside just a few minutes walk from the house. Sitges is just 5 minutes away.
Buses run direct from Sant Pere to Sitges as well as Vilanova, another lovely coastal town 5km away. Barcelona is a 45 minute bus ride from Sant Pere de Ribes and offers some of the country's best shopping, night life, restaurants and museums. There are even hourly night buses back from Barcelona.
For those who don't know it Sitges is a Spanish resort with a difference and a far cry from the noisy typical resorts of the Costas. It has been fashionable since the 1890s, when it became an avant-garde art world hang-out attracting writers, painters, intellectuals and artists as a home and inspiration for their work. It has also been one of Spain's most anti-conventional, anything-goes resorts since the 1960s. Nowadays Sitges appeals to everyone from jet setters to young travellers, honeymooners to week ending families, Barcelona night owls to an international gay crowd. It benefits from a micro climate with an average of 300 days of sunshine a year.
There are 17 beautiful sandy beaches, a lively night life if you like to party and lots of groovy boutiques if you need to spruce up your wardrobe as well as an impressive range of authentic restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Sitges itself is a mere 30 minute car or train journey to the popular city of Barcelona to the north and the historic city of Tarragona to the south.
