|If you're looking for a bed and breakfast with a difference, then you've found it! Enjoy exploring the fun and picturesque town of Sitges from the romantic, unique, tranquil & atmospheric setting of Willowmoon, a traditional wooden sailboat with heaps of history and character. So.welcome aboard! With a friendly personal service and a great location in the secure & peaceful, yet fun & vibrant, marina setting of Port Aiguadolē right next to the beaches and a short walk from the town centre, we offer the best bed and breakfast experience on the seven seas!
A warm and friendly greeting awaits you on board, along with a refreshing glass of cava, beer or juice to help you unwind after your journey. The owners Lisa and Vick welcome you to their home and are always on hand to offer recommendations for Sitges' best shops, restaurants, bars and tourist attractions, as well as information about local sightseeing areas such as Barcelona, Tarragona, Montserrat and the beautiful Garraf region all around.
The location of Willowmoons mooring in the marina complex is close to all the activity of the many restaurants, bars & clubs within Port Aiguadolē but far enough away from them not to be a noise nuisance. The marina is home to many businesses, run by helpful & friendly locals, and hosts a variety of entertainment shows throughout the spring and summer months.
An electronic pass is provided for the security gates in the Marina, and you will be given a key to your own private quarters on board Willowmoon which you can access at all times day or night via a separate entrance. So you can come and go as you please, but with the knowledge that both you and your belongings will be secure on board.
The bed and breakfast accommodation consists of the wheelhouse with a cosy seating area, mini-fridge and tea & coffee making facilities, as well as crockery and cutlery etc. so that you can prepare food for yourselves to consume on board if you wish. Below deck the cabin area contains a double berth and a large single berth, with plenty of storage space in the form of a wardrobe, a drawer and several shelves. Plenty of natural light and fresh air from the 2 sky lights and 4 port holes make the cabin comfortable even in summer. An en-suite bathroom attached contains a WC, sink and corner bath with shower attachment, and offers a lovely view of blue skies above via another 2 sky lights.
A generous and delicious breakfast is usually served on deck, at a time of your choosing, but can be taken in the wheelhouse if preferred. It comprises a variety of products prepared fresh each morning using local ingredients, such as fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, muesli, freshly baked croissants and rolls and a selection of meats, cheeses, olives, tomatoes etc. with fresh coffee, tea and juice.
Breakfast is included in the price but lunch &/or dinner can also be provided at an additional cost. A typical dinner comprises a soup starter, paella for main course, a traditional Catalan desert of Crema Catalana and side dishes of a mixed salad and tomato bread, all washed down with a couple of bottles of chilled cava and a jug of iced water to help alleviate the morning-after symptoms!
The deck, with a hammock and deckchairs in the sun as well as a table and chairs in the shade, is yours to enjoy at all times, to sunbathe, relax or watch the spectacular sunsets enjoyed by Sitges from this unique location. There will be no other guests on board during your stay so the accommodation and deck is only for you, making it feel like your own. So, sipping a cocktail on private deck of a beautiful boat, watching the world go by or the sun slip over the horizon whats not to love?!!
Linen, towels, hairdryer, fans, washing products, tea/coffee making facilities & kitchen utensils are all provided, as are a variety of books, board games and tourist information which you are free to borrow. An iron & ironing board can also be provided if required, and if there is anything you need which we havent thought about please just ask. The boat is centrally heated throughout & there is constant hot water, and additional shower, toilet & laundry facilities are also available within the marina complex.
Bins are emptied, and kitchen utensils washed & products replenished daily. Towels are changed every 3-4 days, or more frequently at the request of the guests. And the cabin will be cleaned & the linen changed mid-stay also at the request of the guests.
In addition to a fantastic B&B service, Willowmoon is delighted to be able to offer guests a number of optional extras such as private tours in our open-top saab (much more civilised than a tour bus!), relaxing pedicures on deck, and our wonderful celebration pack (details of which can be found on our website). Further information will be forwarded on receipt of a booking enquiry.
Sitges is served by Barcelona el Prat Airport which is about 15km away. Getting from the airport to Sitges is both cheap and easy on either the RENFE train or MonBus both of which will drop you in the centre of town. Then it is a 15 minute walk or a short taxi ride to the marina. A taxi from the airport to Port Aiguadolē costs approximately 30-35 euros. Full directions and maps will be sent to you with your booking confirmation.

Our truly unique bed & breakfast provides the relaxing sensation of sailing the seas in the safety of the sheltered Port d'Aiguadolc just moments from the beach and the bustling town of Sitges, so go on...treat yourselves!!
