About our home

Our flat has the best location possible in Blanes, in the middle of the bay. It is a second floor in a building with a lift.
The building has two entrances, the main one overlooks the sea and the rear one is in front of the City Council, in a pedestrian street where you can find the fruit and vegetable market every morning from Monday to Saturday.
You just have to cross the street to be in a nice family beach in the bay between the harbour and Sa Palomera rock, the door to the Costa Brava.
The dining and living room has a great view which is like summer all year round due to the amount of sunlight let in. There are board games, toys and books here for you also.
The independent kitchen is fully equipped and there is also a laundry with washing machine and dryer.
A bathroom with an hydro-massage shower and three bedrooms complete the flat.
The main bedroom has a double bed, the second bedroom has bunk beds and the third one has two beds. You can ask for a baby cot and a high chair if needed.
Start the day early in the morning, at 6 am to see how the fishing boats leave the harbour to get the best fishing spots.
While fishermen are working you can go to Ca l'Orench, the best bakery in town, to get some bread and pastries for breakfast. You should also buy some oranges at the fruit and vegetable market in order to get a fresh orange juice.
After that nice breakfast you can go to the beach all morning and have lunch in any of the restaurants around, or you can go back to the flat for a quick lunch and a long nap!
Between 4-5 pm the fishing boats come back to the harbour followed by the seagulls and if you go to the harbour you will have the chance to attend the fish auction. Every fisherman takes home part of the captures of the day that later, his wife sells in the Portal del Peix, just 50 metres from our building. You can go there and get some fish for dinner.
After dinner is not time to rest! You should get a nice ice-cream and go for a walk all through the bay until you get to the mouth of the Tordera river, stopping to have a look at the crafts stalls you will find on your way.
Now you deserve a nice sleep if you don't want to enjoy the night life. There is a large number of bars and pubs to have a drink.

More about us

  1. We are a family of four. Our children are 13 and 10 years old.

  2. Pep works for the Catalan government and I (Olga) run my own business, an environmental consultancy.

  3. Experienced home exchangers. We think that exchanging homes has a lot to do with our way of living our holidays and our way of understanding life (less stuff, more sharing) So, would you like to share your house with us?
