Brill location beach in front old town behind
Thank you for your review Martin.
I hope to see you again in your next holiday,
Olga's place is nice with unbeatable location for easy access to main attractions, including of course the beach right in front of the property with a fantastic view. Blanes is a great town with lots of things to see and do around starting from an early morning dip on its great beach, a tasty "menu del día" in restaurants for lunch, relaxing at the beach in the afternoon and ending with walks/drinks/cafes until late evening.
Not the most convenient if you have a car since parking up front is expensive but you'll find alternatives from discounted price with Olga or even free parking (5 - 10 min walk). But there's easy access to Blanes and the apartment using public transportation
We struggled a bit with the August heat and noise during the night, but I guess because we're not much used to it since we live in a quiet area in cold Scotland!.. but I guess this is no problem for many people
The apartment is comfortable and suitable for kids. Easy access including lift. Clean and nicely decorated with everything needed being provided including some toys and beach accessories. It could use some improvement though on mattresses and pillows and additional fans for the hot nights.
Olga is really nice and both check-in and check-out were easy and straight forward, We definitely recommend the place if you think it suits your needs of being right in the middle of the action in Blanes.
Muchas gracias Olga, disfrutamos mucho la estadía a pesar del calor. Nos marchamos con muy buenos recuerdos, Un abrazo!
Thank you for your review.
We have taken notes of everything that can be improved.
Olga's place is exactly as described and she was excellent to work with. The view and location is unbeatable! We will definitely return in the future. Highly recommend!!
Thanks Dave for your nice review.
It's been a pleasure hosting your family.
We hope to see you again very soon,
Great apartment with amazing view in perfect location. The owner was really helpful and accomodating with check in and check out times, nothing was too much bother. There seemed to be something interesting happening right outside every day including a weekly market, a race start/finish line and a dance show, all of which we which we enjoyed watching from the large balcony. There are restaurants, bars and shops all around the apartment and a weekly fruit and veg market on the street every day except Sunday.
Ww travelled as a family with a 3 year old and a 7 month old and the location and apartment were perfect and well equipped. It even has a dryer. What I really liked was that we didn't have to buy things like washing up liquid, tea towels etc. Or store cupboard essentials like salt, pepper oil etc that we have had to in other apartments we've stayed in. And there ware parasols, beach towels and bucket and spades available to use.
Thank you Olga, we hope to be back in Blanes again soon.
Thank you Jack for your lovely review.
We're glad you enjoyed our large balcony.
We hope to see you again on your next holiday!
First Class in all respects
From the moment of arrival & meeting Olga who is great, so helpful & considerate to ensure we enjoy our stay & want for nothing. The apartment is superb, comfortable, spacious, contains everything anyone could need (home away) It was great seeing sunrise with a cuppa first thing on the balcony, very useful having 2 entrances,the location is perfect for walking,exploring,restaurants,shops & supermarkets.& of course the wonderful promenade & beach. We were only there as a couple but 4/6 would still be more than comfortable. There is a full list of well recommended restaurants,shops & all useful information available in the lounge with nowhere any great distance to reach. We would definitely return& venture off further afield, there is no real need for a car because local buses & a main line Railway is quite close. If you chose to drive there is a large underground Carpark within very close proximity. It was further away from Barcelona than expected but there are plenty of interesting typical towns & villages to discover real Spain, this is not your 'all day breakfast' or John Smiths or Fosters style resort. but those styles are further along the coast if preferred. Our visit was mid November & the weather was splendid.chilly evenings, only 1 shower of rain so we were fortunate.If you want to cook in there is certainly no shortage of daily fresh bread, fruit, vegetables & fish & numerous local butchers or various meats in the Supermarket There are daily markets along the Promenade & the street nearby..
We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit to Blanes so strongly recommend the town & area.
Thank you Roger for your lovely words!
I was sure you'd love walking along the promenade :)
We hope to see you again on your next holiday,
Great location,and the Owner is very pleasant.Thank you!!
Thank you Monica!
We hope to see you again on your next holiday!

Blanes has some 40,000 inhabitants. Its dynamic commercial centre and the craft fairs which are held during the summer attract people from all over the area. The town's Annual Festival of Santa Anna includes many activities, including the International Fireworks Competition.
