VER Y HACER
EL DÍA PERFECTO DE ELLEN
¡La luz aumenta! El sol empieza a brillar sobre las colinas, y el jardín, ...
Después de un desayuno ligero en el patrio al frente de la casita, llego la hora de ponerse los zapatos para caminar. ¡Dexter sabe lo que eso significa! Atravesamos s el jardín hacia arriba, e inmediatamente entramos en el Parque de la Serrallada.
Hiking & Biking
Trails depart directly from La Casita, passing by beautiful viewpoints and vineyards. One of them is a 6km walk through Serralada Natural Park to Sant Mateu, to find horses, goats, cows, and lots of silence. Enjoy the viewpoint Mirador de la Cornisa, just a ten minutes walk from the Ermita for an amazing view of the coastline and Barcelona.
Prefer to explore by (electrical) mountainbike? Let us hook you up with a bycicle and Héctor will be happy to share his Strava routes with you.
Located in the heart of the Maresme area, and being the Gastronomical heart of the regions, there are many options to chose from. Can Rin, l´Hort and Cal Estrany are just steps away. La Caseta, Can Miguelito Nou and Sant Salvador are our favorite spots for outdoor lunch in the mids of nature, and all within walking distance.
The nearest beach can be found jusst 3km away. There is a convenient car park next to the train station. In summer time, there are plenty of beach bars (chiringuitos) to enjoy a relaxing time with your toes in the sand. We recommend to check out Bruma for live music on Sunday evenings and Vaive, where you can enjoy drinks and tapas while the kids play on the beach.
If you are a wine lover, you are at the right place! From the terrace, you can see the vineyard of Cabrils. D.O Alella and D.O Penedès are other wine regions worth a visit. Our favorites are: Bouquet d´Alella, Alta Alella, Albet i Noya, Jean Leon and Segura Viudas.
Barcelona will always be one of our favorite cities. Its medieval city center and Modernist architecture in the neighborhood L’Eixample are beautiful, and you will find great sidewalk cafés, tapas bars and original stores everywhere. Except for the Gaudi monuments, we love to visit the lesser known Sant Pau, another Modernist masterpiece! Having lived here for many years, we are happy to share our top picks with you.
Just over an hour away, a visit to Girona is a must: whether you’re a Game of Thrones fan or not, there is plenty to appreciate in the storybook looking town. Not many people know that its bridge "Pont de Ferro" - the rust red, iron work of a Mr Gustave Eiffel was contructed in1877, two years before the work on a certain little tower in Paris was completed
Only 1,5hour by car, the seaside village of Tárraco was the first Roman settlement in modern Spain and there are still plenty of historical remains. History, coastal views and quaint streets to get lost in; a great option for a day trip away from the crowds. If you are into rice dishes and paella, the best place is a small seafood restaurant called El Llagut.
