“Our family spent two weeks in Vilanova in August. We would like to thank Imma and family for this exchange. Fantastic house. Great location in the pedestrian zone. Five minutes to a lovely beach. Supermarket is next door and 5 mins walk to the train station. Lovely weather and warm sea is all that is needed for a relaxing holiday!!!! When we came back our house was nice and clean and the cat was well looked after. Big thank youdear Imma and family!!! With love from London Erica, Alex and Zoe.”

“We did our last exchange with a lovely family from Spain. Last May we stayed in their summer apartment located on a nice beach of Mediterranean Sea. From there we could reach Barcelona by train in less than 45 minutes. It was wonderful; the Catalan people is warm and open minded. The family was very helpful and welcoming. They came to our house in Montréal in August.They were very respecful and took good care of our house and car. We highly recommend an exchange with Imma & Vicent's family.”
“ By Dee Grant, London (ID=57) My family did a Christmas exchange with Imma and her family. We had a fantastic time. Imma's 3 bedroom apartment was clean, tidy and comfortable - and so close to the beach! From here we had easy access to the beautiful city of Barcelona, and all it's many delights. Imma had kindly left so much information for us about places to see in Barcelona. The Illopart family are the perfect family to exchange with, they are a very clean, responsible and honest family, and left our home in perfect order. I would recommend exchanging with them any time! Thank you so much Imma, Vicent and family!!! It was a pleasure to swap with you. Dee Grant”
“We did a non-simultaneous exchange with Imma Llopart's family that is always somehow more tricky than simultaneous and everything turns out very well. The family was very sweet and they left our apartment in excelent order. They washed everything and cleaned the flat that we did not even ask for so it was nice surprise for us. In terms of their apartment, it is very close to Barcelona. The apartment is in the 4th floor, it is spacious, there are three bedrooms where 6 people can sleep and the living/dining room. In the kitchen there is everything one may need. As well there is available stuff like sugar, salt, cafe etc. From the balcony you can see the sea that is approx. 300 meters far away. In the house where the apartment is situated is a swimming pool and also a nice place for resting. It is in a little city that is calm. It is not a huge touristy center that has obviously its advantages (it is not so crowded and it's more natural). If you go along the sea, there is a walk where are bars and restaurants. Close to the city is a huge shopping mall. Very close to this city (7 min.by train) is a bigger city, Sitges, that is very old and there are a lot of interesting places to see. We highly recommend Imma's family for exchange.”
“Imma and her family proposed us an exchange last year, during the long week end of November 1st, 2007. We were used to exchanging over longer periods, usually during the summer time but we just thought this was a wonderful idea ! And, in fact, it really was because we had a magnificient, sunny and warm 4 days, a couple of hours of car only from our house in Toulouse. The appartment that the Llopart family let us was within 500 m from the beach, impeccably clean, fully equipped and our children were happy to watch cartoons in Spanish ! Although we did not meet, we had a very good contact with Imma (we are still in touch) and when we came back home, the house was as we had left it ! Thank you for a very enjoyable 4 days vacation !”
Where is it?
Vilanova is a safe and lovely city, with all services at a hand reach and very well linked with Barcelona and Tarragona by a really cheap, frequent and comfortable train.
It has two wonderful beaches, a long promenade by the sea, cosy cafés, good restaurants, lots of shops and a lovely old town. We live right in the centre of the city, in a leafy pedestrian street, next to the best ice cream maker I have ever known! Supermarket is just round the corner, the market is at 5 minutes walking, good bakery at one minute walking,...
