Well this is exactly how we felt during our stay on Vick and Lisa's Willowmoon! Warm handshake and hug, good words, as well as thoughtful attentions (like this chilled bottle of water which saved our life when coming back at 6AM after drinking and dancing all night long in crazy Sitges!!! Oh and the breakfast...!!!!! A feast!!!! Lisa and Vick are so friendly you just want to spend another night or another week with them...! The boat is super comfortable and the cabin is very private, even though it's next to the host's living quarters. If you want to treat yourself and experience a different and unforgettable time, don't hesitate and book !! You won't regret it!!! Thanks again Lisa and Vick!!! Keep you huge smiles, we'll be back soon!! B&O
What a beautiful gem she is ... And Vick and Lisa , so accomadating , informative . Great breakfast , comfortable bed with in built slight soothing rocking motion , near by good quality beach , as I state we will return . Thank you both xxx
This was my 50th birthday treat and I wanted something memorable, and this is certainly that. Everyday you get the most beautiful breakfasts and the views are simply stunning over the harbour. Loved my break and will be going back
We stayed there the first weekend they were open at the end of June - my wife and I in the parents room and my friend in Marta's room. Paula and her sister and father were extremely helpful and courteous giving us suggestions where to eat that evening in Caldes d'Estrac. Our room was spacious and had access to the balcony. In the morning we had fresh ecological fruit and jams as well as fresh bread/croissants from a local bakery. Certainly a relaxed stay not too far from the beach and we will definitely come back again another time.
Victor and Lisa are perfect hosts in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. They are friendly, helpful, and they will give you plenty of privacy. Victor makes delicious breakfasts every morning--he even made a particular local dish that we requested. One of the highlights of the trip was that we were the only guests on the boat. This made for excellent privacy and personalized service, and we had the deck to ourselves every evening. We stayed for our honeymoon, but this would be the perfect place for any vacation--it's reasonably priced and beautiful. Walking distance to some amazing restaurants, beaches, and architecture. If you stay, make sure to ask for the wine tour. They will drive you to one of the best wineries in Spain and you will get a small-group or personal tour of the facilities, plus a wine tasting with a trained sommelier. We would love to go back if we ever get the chance. -Jonathan and Ariel
We had such a lovely time, and Vick & Lisa made us feel really welcome. The boat was beautiful and we also went on a tour of the local area and a wine tasting which I would highly recommend. We ordered a romantic dinner on deck which was great as well. Fantastic holiday!!
My partner and I had a fantastic time aboard Willowmoon. The boat is beautiful and the owners made us feel very welcome with a glass of Cava on arrival. The exclusivity of having the guest area and the entire deck to ourselves was fantastic, and a full English breakfast certainly helped with that morning-after feeling! I will definitely be going back, and thoroughly recommend Willowmoon to anyone looking for a B&B with a difference
I know it's been awhile since Francois and I stayed, but I always look back fondly on our time there in May 2009. The breakfast frittatas were the best as well as the fruit cups. The tub was wonderful for daily bubble baths. Thanks for providing such great weather too! Sorry about forgetting to give you the cabin key back! Linda and Francois
Having been staying in the regular hotels for 4 months per year of business and leisure trips, it was a nice surprise to find “WillowMoon Bed and Breakfast” in the Barcelona Harbor. It has been a pleasant and unique experience staying there. WillowMoon is a cozy and lovely old-fashioned wooden boat anchored in the marina of Barcelona. The beauty of the history in her can be easily traced back in time, meanwhile she has been renovated to have modern and comfortable facilities. Since the room reservation is exclusively limited for one group of guests each time, it is perfect to maintain good privacy during the stay. The guest room is made of individual suite with a private entrance. Room is separated into two levels, a living/seating area on the top and bedroom/bathroom on the bottom. This separated arrangement makes the activities of the guests quiet and comfortable without interfering each another. Another special feature is its contemporary spacious bathtub that can overlook the nightly sky, which makes a romantic setting under the starring summer nights in Spain. The boat offers an amazing ocean view over the harbor as well as a city view of busy world along the sidewalk of the port: an interesting contrast in a harmony. Guests can get on to the most vibrant part of the city, or retreat back to the peaceful and isolated boathouse in a second. Breakfast and sunbath on the dock are relaxing and enjoyable. Overall, the decoration of the boathouse is elegant and tasteful. Located in the heart of Barcelona. Great safety with security guards, surveillance cameras and keypad gate pass to enter. The innkeeper Steve, is warm, very helpful and accommodating (and has a cute Scottish/British accent ¿). The service is proper and professional. The British style of breakfast is well prepared, nicely displayed, and delicious. I will definitely come back to WillowMoon again. Carolyn, from NIH-Washington DC and Boston, USA and Paris, France.
Fantastic Bed and Breakfast in Barcelona on an old wooden boat. Great location near the Born and Gotic areas and close to the beach. Very peaceful and romantic - there is even a bath aboard! Good breakfast served on deck in the sunshine. Highly recommended.
Sitges, el encanto del Mediterráneo.
Población de origen fenicio y fue colonia romana en tiempos del emperador Augusto. Su edificio más importante es el Cau Ferrat que alberga un importante museo donde pueden contemplarse diferentes obras de arte realizada con materiales diversos como hierro forjado, cristal o cerámica. Justo en frente se encuentra el Palacio Maricel que completa el núcleo de la ciudad vieja, junto con la iglesia y varias mansiones interesantes de los siglos XVII y XVIII.
En el centro moderno de la villa destaca el Museo Romántico Can Llopis donde puedes disfrutar de una maravillosa colección de carruajes, muebles, objetos decimonónicos, y las bellas colecciones Lola Anglada de muñecas europeas antiguas. Pero el principal atractivo de esta población reside en sus playas, concurridas en verano hasta límites insospechados y que pueden presumir de ser una de las mejores de la costa dorada por la limpieza y los servicios que ofrece.

En Sitges se puede disfrutar de una excelente oferta gastronómica de reconocido prestigio internacional. Sus platos a base de pescados y arroces son especialidades de la zona que demuestran el buen comer de esta localidad. Entre los más populares se encuentra el “xató” elaborado con bacalao, atún, boquerones, olivas y lechuga que se sirve acompañado de una salsa a base de almendras, ajos, aceite, vinagre y sal. También tienen excelentes vinos, algunos con denominación de origen como el Garrat y la Malvasia.
En esta población encontramos una oferta muy amplia en cuanto a establecimientos hoteleros se refiere, pero hay que destacar las casas rurales de Sitges que gozan de un ambiente selecto, íntimo y acogedor a precios muy competitivos. En un entorno elitista donde se combina a la perfección los servicios urbanos con una selecta oferta de ocio, Sitges es el lugar idóneo para unas vacaciones familiares o con amigos.
