Archive for month: August, 2007
To be in time for Christmas (yeah I know, but it is a Calendar), our friend Philippe will be taking his last shots this month. He will be on the gay beaches this Fri/Sat/Sun so keep an eye out for him and who knows, you could be Mr. September! To arrange an appointment, simply email email@example.com
If you come to Sitges to see the fireworks next year, you may want to consider chartering a boat and watch the event from the sea!
The entire event takes on a complete new appearance from the sea as you watch the fireworks explode over the entire village.
You can charter anything from a simple scooner to a magnificent yacht….or find a nice boy who might intive you to a private party!
To enquire about boat rental, simply contact Gay Sitges Guide and we can do the rest!
Most departures are from the port of Aiguadolce, which is located in Sitges.
You can also set sail from Barcelona and take a spectacular trip along the Iberian/Mediterranian coast, possibly the most memorable way to arrive in Sitges… but whatever you do, we can definitely recommend taking in the fireworks from the sea!
September is a very busy month in Sitges, with another major Festival (Santa Tecla), the Wine Harvest Festival and 2 major bears events, including Mr. Bear Sitges. Accommodation is booking fast, and we have just heard of limited availability at Vinyet Deluxe Apartments.
Vinyet Deluxe is located just 3 mins walk from the Gay Beach and 5 mins from the centre of town.
The apartment can sleep 3 and has been completely remodeled in the past 4 months.
Located in one of the best areas of Sitges the large front terrace is perfect for relaxing or entertaining friends.
No expense has been spared in refurbishing this apartment to the highest standards.
Rates start at EUR 180 per night and there is still limited availability for the month of September.
