CALDES dESTRAC (CALDETES) Beautiful, sunny, 3 bedroom apartment, perfect for 2-5 people, 3 minute walk to beach, shops and train; ten minute walk to the nudist beach - in the centre of the small coastal village, Caldetes, on the Maresme Coast, 45 minutes by train to the centre of Barcelona, with a well-equipped kitchen, open living/dining area, and small sunny balcony.
The apt is in a small apartment building on a quiet street in the center of the village. This is not a tourist building nor complex.
The apt. sleeps 5 comfortably. The main bedroom has a great queen sized bed and wall to wall built-in closets. There is a smaller bedroom with a standard double bed and adequate closet space. There is a third small bedroom with a single bed, shelves, night table and lamp. The two larger bedrooms have large windows and plenty of light/sun. The smallest has an smaller window. The bathroom, blue and white and natural wood, is neat and complete - sink , toilet, a bidet, a beautiful step-in shower and a great wall to wall mirror.
The rest of the flat consists of one large open clean and airy space: well-equipped kitchen – stove /oven ( full cooker), large fridge, microwave, with an ample natural wood counter top/breakfast bar, dining area with an extendable table ..sits 2 to 6 .. and a living area with a sofa, coffee table and arm chairs. The wide sliding glass doors lead out onto a small little terrace/balcony where you will find a table and big enough to enjoy a morning coffee or evening drink ( ore even a simple meal).
There’s a TV , DVD and CD player..
Two short flights up is the community roof top terrace with a view of the sea ( not to mention the stars and moon :- ) It is a great place to have a glass of wine before or after dinner. There is a small private laundry room with a new washing machine and there are plenty of lines to sun-dry your clothes .
The flat is on a small dead-end street right in the center, just one minute from the charming fruit and vegetable market and shops. It is a three (two, five?) minute walk over to the wide sandy beach and even less to the train station that takes you, on tracks by the sea, right to the heart of Barcelona - Pl Catalunya- in just under 45 minutes.
The central heating makes non-summer rentals even more comfortable.
Caldetes, or Caldes d’Estrac as it is also known, (check it out yourself on the web: ) sits right next to the sea and is one of the smallest towns in Catalunya, but even more importantly , it is the town on the Maresme Coast that has managed to maintain an entirely natural, quiet, small town setting without artifice.
Caldes is also known for its thermal waters which adds another facet for year round vacationers. There are municipal thermal baths ( known for respiratory, circulatory and nervous system treatments , as well as rheumatology and traumatology) and a reasonably priced private center ( Balneario Titus) and there are more in the making.
The beaches, divided into the south side and north side, are all wide and sandy. The south side employs lifeguards, has installed some swing and slide groupings for children, and volleyball nets for adults, while the entire stretch – north and south - boasts open fresh water showers about every hundred meters, cafes right on the sand - where you can chill out with a tasty paella and refreshing sangria , or a cold soft drink and a snack, and some with lovely terraces where you can enjoy a full meal.
For those who like the idea , a ten minute stroll up the beach will take you to a municipally established Nudist Beach . It’s technically in the next town – Arenys de Mar . Here you’ll find a relaxed nudist atmosphere , the same wide sandy beach, the same open showers and beach side cafes.
Although a small town, Caldes has always taken great interest in the arts and music. There are various exhibition spaces, music fests, and an important new addition is the FUNDACIó PALAU boasting the collection of one of the most prestigious experts on Pablo Picasso, Josep Palau, where the main exhibition room is dedicated exclusively to Picasso and where many a cultural activity is held, as well as offering art classes.
Being right on the modern local train line means you can not only hop down to Barcelona but visit towns all up and down the coast, or even daytrip it to more distantplaces like Figueres if you fancy a visit to the famous Dalí Museum for example.
A car is not necessary
The beach is two minutes walk away, as are the central fruit and vegetable market, shops, restaurants and museums.
The train station is even closer (but not too close!!). Excellent, inexpensive train service (the same train line to and from the airport) to Barcelona, and northwards to other lovely coastal towns, every 20 to 30 minutes.
