The Perfect Valentines Day in Sitges

Valentines Day Sitges

Assuming you have the perfect apartment or Guest Room, take breakfast in one of the many cafes facing the sea. Then pop on the train to Barcelona and head for CatheHelicopters. Barcelona is a beautiful city and its architecture looks even more amazing from the Sky. It really is romantic as you take in the breataking views over the mountains and down into the city itself.

Do some shopping when you finish… we recommend something expensive with a diamond or two… or for those looking for something more unique, try the Encants Vells or “Old Gems” market whch is a cross between a jumble sale and an antiques market. Great fun!

Sitges Carnival Costumes…

Carnival Costumes

Last year the theme as always seemed to focus on feathers, leathers and supermen! Bunnies included!

Even though Carnival is not stricly a gay event, there are several days which have been claimed by local gay boys and girls as there own. Believe it or not, the majority of the boys you see walking round dressed up as women are actually straight… or so they say… we don't believe a word of it!

Carnival Costumes
Our 2 American super heroes were in town and left very little to the imagination!

Some locals have been planning what to wear since last October, so expect some spectacular outfits over the 5 days of the event.

Carnival Costumes

Carnival takes place this Feb 14th and lasts approximately 1 week.

If you are in Sitges and want a customised costume, we recommend you try,

Frank Lampard… Sitges Newest Resident….

Frank Lampard, Sitges

British and Spanish Tabloid newspapers were full of stories reporting Frank Lampard's possible move to either Barcelona or Madrid. Either way, one major newspaper has it on good authority that Frank has bought a house in Sitges…

Sitges, Frank Lampard

Well, from the photo above we think he's, ahem, well equipped to deal with the narrow streets.

Frank Lampard

We're sure the local residents of Sitges will make Frank feel more than welcome! Hes set to join a long list of celebrities who have a second home in the jewel of the Mediterranean.

Essentials 101 – No 2, Malvasia.

Malvasia Sitges

We've been neglecting our 101 essentials of late.. so much so that we're still at No 1. So after being introduced recently to Malvasia de Sitges, we thought we would include it as Essential No 2, as once you've tasted it, you'll be hooked. Sitges Malvasia is a true rarity with yearly production of about 4,500 bottles in total.

2.5 hectares of Sitges Malvasia still exist today, though they are now embedded between more recently erected houses and buildings. Manuel Llopis de Casades left a will one month before dying which handed over possession and management of all his properties in the Sitges territory to the Hospital de Saint Juan Bautista de Sitges (a religious charitable institution) on the condition that they continue production of Sitges Malvasia from the Llopis vines.

Malvasia Sitges

And so today people still enjoy this delicious wine. Be sure to try and get a glass if you can find it… and if you can lay your hands on a bottle even better! A must for every liquor cabinet. The wine is so famous that even the 5 Star Dolce Sitges Hotel named their main bar after it… so we recommend you spend an evening there and sip a glass while you take in some spectacular sunsets.
