There’s a certain magic in the air at Sitges.

The whitewashed coastal town lies on the Costa Brava, approximately 30km South of Barcelona.

The town is bursting with classic art deco buildings a beautiful bay and a seafront promenade lined with palm trees and Spanish eateries. Its beaches are known to be some of the best on the Mediterranean coastline.

It is also home to three gorgeous little dogs that, in the absence of their owners, I have the greatest pleasure to look after … Eddy, Dobby and Tauran.






The timing for my visit to this beautiful region was also perfect.

February is essentially not a tourist season, so I did get to experience the town in a very tranquil state.   That is until I very quickly realised that February is also Carnaval time.  

The peace and tranquility was spectacularly transformed into “Party” mode as  the town and it’s beautiful people embraced a very colourful and energetic Mardi Gras celebration that lasted nearly a week.

Sitges….. Totally spectacular and an experience that for me will be remembered for a very long time.

What the Owners had to say:

Anthony has been an exceptionally good housesitter!

We have been very lucky in that Anthony not only cared and loved our 3 pet dogs but was very attentive in keeping us informed daily on their well being whilst we were away.

Our house was immaculate when we returned and as we found Anthony to be a very nice sociable guy.

We had no problem in inviting him to stay with us for a couple of more days before moving onto his next assignment.

I would highly recommend Anthony for any future Trusthousitting assignments and welcome him back if the need arose.
