Just 30 minutes from Barcelona City by road or rail and backed by the hills of the Serralada Litoral Natural Park, Vilassar de Mar is an attractive town with a population of approximately 20,000 and a distinctly laid-back lifestyle. City dwellers, take the train to Vilassar to enjoy its clean beaches and the fantastic beach bars that pop up during the summer months. Many move to the town in search of a more spacious home and a better quality of life by the sea when starting a family. The easy access to the city and the excellent infrastructure enjoyed here also draws many international buyers to the area.

The rich and interesting history of this town is reflected in its eclectic architecture. The main seafront strip of Vilassar, between the train station and the town hall square, showcases some of the finest turn-of-the-century homes in Maresme. These properties were custom-designed homes to those that set off to the Americas in the late nineteenth century in search of their fortune and returned with a love of colonial architecture, which they artfully combined with the Catalan Modernista fashion of the time. The result is some truly spectacular houses with a unique personality and a great range of original period design features.

Vilassar de Mar real estate also includes apartments with communal facilities, we find many quaint former fisherman's houses with characteristic features such as exposed beam ceilings and pretty rear patios, more often than not, featuring lemon trees and a shallow ceramic well, where fish would once have been deposited and are now converted into attractive water features.
