A holiday to Sitges in the lovely Mediterranean coastal town, a seaside resort some 35km southwest of Barcelona in Catalunya, Spain. Sitges is a seaside town with great beaches and excellent tourist facilities. Recognized as one of the most charming towns and prestige of the Catalan coast, enjoys a mild and temperate micro climate, which means that visitors can enjoy enviable temperatures every month of the year Sitges has one of most vibrant and hippest gay scenes on the coast.
The beaches are very colourful and fun!
The city which overlooks the Mediterranean has large avenues, narrow streets, four museums and the gorgeous beaches of Costa Dorada/Golden Coast Sitges has a warm "micro-climate" that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities almost every day of the year.,... however one can also enjoy simply taking a stroll along the sea-front boulevard, a bike ride through the Garraf Natural Park or soak up the atmosphere of the Sitges nights on the renowned "Dos de Mayo" street.
Four kilometres of beach with a delightful sea-front promenade featuring turn of the 20th century colonial "Indiano" mansions on one side and the sea on the other, makes it always a an ideal holiday in Sitges. Sitges has always been characterized by its tolerance, both of the locals and open-mindedness of visitors too. It's definitely a convivial village where all people are welcome regardless of colour, religion or sexual orientation.

It’s amazing how guests from all over the world sum up their experiences in a very similar way. We often find opinions about our hotel which describe it as an “oasis” within the bustling city centre of Sitges. Another very common name ascribed to it, especially among Britons, is the “hidden gem of Sitges”. In both cases, the guests highlight the peace and tranquility they experienced in the interior gardens and the pool area.
It is an enclosed area, comprising the three buildings that make up the hotel. One of them, with its characteristic turret, is an indisputable part of Sitges’ “Route of the Indians”.
The modernist architecture and décor, plus some typically colonial elements, such as the garden’s palm trees, are typical features from the period the hotel was built in. In 1896, the prestigious architect Gaietá Bohigas built the house, which was intended for the family of Severiano Virella Casellas, an “Indian” who had just returned to Sitges to enjoy his earnings obtained overseas.
Until the 1930s, “Can Severiano” was simply a private home, which its owner named “Villa María” after his daughter. After this it was converted into a school. Only in the Sixties did it finally become a hotel, playing a prominent role in the tourist boom in Sitges, and under the name Sitges Park Hotel.
Finally, in 2012, medium hotels took over the hotel and started the job of returning it to its former glories. Their renovation works sought to capture the sensations that this unique setting evokes. The sensations of radiance, calm and stillness, that make this place an oasis of peace in the centre of Sitges.
