    Thank you for sharing all these beautiful places. I lived in the southern of Spain for a couple of years, which I loved. My heart always said to me, you got to live in Catalunya. The last weeks I decided to move over to the Barcelona area in 2015, these pictures show me why. Origanal I am from Holland.

    Hi,

    I love your blog and thought you may be able to help. My wife and I are looking for a picturesque small town within an hour and a half drive from Barcelona. We will have 2 kids, one 21 months old and another 4 months old. we really would like to stay in a rustic small villa with access to a pool within walking distance of a town with a good restaurant or two and be able to drive to a nearby beach. Have you got any suggestions on location and where may be good sites/ places to find accommodation.

    Thanks, Phil
