This apartment is in a very convenient location: opposite the beach and very close to a train station where you can get the train to Barcelona (5 min walk).
It is small, but for us it was more than enough: 2 adults + 1 toddler. We didn't use the second bedroom at all.
We found that the owner could have been more generous with tea&coffee, oil, kitchen roll, toilet paper, rubish bin bags, detergent etc. We had to buy pretty much everything. I know it's not a hotel, but little things like that can make a difference.
We also had a bit of an issue with ants, who kept getting in the house and there are lots of mosquitos, we were bitten every day. I recommend you get a spray to protect your skin.
Also, there were no beach towels, which I think could have been provided, to save some space for people in the luggage. I had to buy some from there.
More towels should also be provided for the bathroom.
The apartment is just next to a restaurant and in the evening it can get quite noisy. Plus it's just next to the nain road, which adds to the overall noise.
However, the bus station is just outside if you need to take the bus.
Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in Casteldefells. It's definitely more afordable than Barcelona and it has plenty of restaurants if you wsnt to each out. The beach is very long and clean and the water is clean and has no rocks, so it's very pleasant to get in it.
I have recently returned from a week's stay at this apartment which is in a great location right on the beach. Although small it, is perfectly fine for two or three people and has everything you need for a beach break. As it is in an apartment block you can hear some noise at times at night and in the morning but this is not a major issue.
Overall this is a great little apartment for a beach break, it is really good value for money and Karolina the manager of the apartment is very helpful with information etc.
Am hoping to return next year.
The apartment was clean, comfortable and although small was perfectly big enough for four of us and although well equipped the crockery and cooking pots needed an upgrade. Outside, the patio garden was equipped with table and garden chairs and had a brilliant view of the sea which was just a few yards away.
great beachside apartment close to Barcelona ( 25mins by train) - station really close ( but you do not hear any trains !).apartment well equipped, clean and comfy beds. really really close beautiful sandy beach sea warm and shallow for meters. great for evening volleyball.
hola ola restaurant has delicious sweet and savoury pancakes and other options too, very tasty and reasonably priced, friendly staff too. recommended to visit - sagrada familia ( go inside ) and pablao espanyol to see powerful flamenco at tablao de Carmen, lovely trip with mixture of sightseeing and relaxing on the beach, just perfect.

The appartment is not big, but we stayed 2 weeks with 2 children of 17 and 15 years old, and we had all we needed : good beds, kitchen, bath room, ... Especially the terras with great sea view is lovely. There is a very large beach and it is not TO crowded. We came by plane : a car is not needed! The railway station is about 4 minutes (buy a T10 card and you travel for 1 euro to the hart of Barcelona). Also shops, supermarket, bread are all nearby. Very good restaurants and not expensive. The owner of the appartment is very helpfull and also very kind. She gave us many usefull tips : shops, restaurants, railway, ... We are thinking of going back there next year!!!!
