Short break to Vilanova for a friend of Josefina's wedding. All very nice, lots of meals with friends and family.
Hotel close to sea, with nice beach, a few restaurants about, including a great, cheap Chinese one, on the corner of the Rambla... Train station walkable from beach area.
We also went to Cubelles for a drink on the …
... kept most of them away from the dinner table though. Most spectacular though was the grasshopper which paid us a brief visit. It must have been six inches long.
The site was full, and as we explored we found out why. Talking to a group of English near the reception we found out they were part of a large group of motor homers who had been touring together and were now on their way home. Ten or so had remained together and come to Iseo. ...
plans are for Stefan to build a woodshed for storage and to stack
wood round, for me to start a potager or veg garden and make a
bit of lawn out of the meadow. Stefan will set up an irrigation
system which will work when we are away and the chalet is let out as
a gite, but first I have to tackle Monsieur Duhar about the blockage
to the ruisseau so that we
can use the free water we are entitled to. Before doing
... all of our provisions! After dropping the groceries off, we went back out in search of food. By this time we were SO hungry, with all the walking and swimming, we literally could not see straight. We came across a restaurant named Morelia, an Argentine restaurant. At first we were hestitant, overpaying for Argentine food is not what we had in mind! It turns out that they had a parrillada for two people at a really reasonable prize, so we decided to give it ...
... server, who gave me an English menu but made order in Spanish. Now, while this is happening "Eye of the tiger" come on in the background. I actually giggled. Marco (yes, marco) said que? Which I replied "musica de America". So I ordered: red wine... A cheese selection to start and garlic shrimp. Oh, and pan con tomate. (bread with tomato). Anyway, the wine is great: and I decide to top my bread with my cheese. ...
TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Solvi Vilanova i la Geltru
Location is very good, very close to beach, and beachside cafes/restaurants, 15-20 min walking distance to train station and old town. Hotel is very nice for a 2 star, with just the stairs looking a bit tatty. Room was clean, but was not cleaned in our stay, despite us putting the please clean room sign out (although this was after about 2pm). Tap water is horrible in Barcelona area - but bottled water cheap to buy. Breakfast fine - ham, croissants, squash, coffee, hot bread, butter, jam, cereals, drinkable water! Was a bit miffed when we were not allowed on the rooftop terrace at about 6pm. We wanted to buy a drink in the downstarirs bar and take it up, but they said we weren't allowed as they had sprayed some mozzie spray... Well this is fair enough for 30 mins, but they said it was toxic all night, which for an open air terrace was somewhat surpsising!! Downstairs is ok for drinking, but was very cold as is in shadow in the afternoon and we could see that lovely sun on the unusable terrace - madness!! I went up to terrace during the day to take a peek and it is really good. However, the staff made up for this annoyance by letting us check out late on the final day. We had been at a wedding, so didn't get in til 6am, so the extra time granted was very welcome and we are incredibly grateful to the staff for this.
