Vilanova Park with Al Fresco Holidays
Erica Casey from Crystal Al Fresco recently stayed at Vilanova Park in Spain and agreed to share with us her experience of the site and some handy hints for the area.
Just two miles out of town lies the Al Fresco site at Vilanova Park where things are quieter but never dull. We stayed in a luxury mobile home, enjoying all the elements of a relaxing family holiday while sampling everything the resort has to offer.
Our home slept six in three bedrooms and still had room for a kitchen, spacious living and dining area and huge balcony. What’s more it’s just two minutes’ walk from the heart of the Park – an old Catalonian farmhouse converted into a bar and restaurant. Meals are very reasonably priced (we paid €50 for a family of three) and there is a takeaway service and supermarket on site.
Then there are the amenities – two huge outdoor pools, a cosy indoor one with Jacuzzi, gym and spa, football and basketball courts, tennis, table tennis, mini arcade, kids’ club, teens’ disco, bike hire, kids’ play-areas and mini zoo.
Our two-year-old loved all of it and she wasn’t alone judging by the number of smiling faces we saw during our week. Among them were the ever-cheerful reps, Linda and Mickey who live on site and were always around for help and advice.
Venture out of the park and you’re spoilt for choice. Vilanova boasts a beautiful rambla (main street) running down to the beach. The shops here stay open late so browse away before stopping for a mid-evening coffee or beer with the locals.
Then there’s Barcelona. Hop on a train and you’re there in 40 minutes, leaving you plenty of time to soak up the sights of La Sagrada Familia, Old Town, the aquarium and the awesome Nou Camp football stadium.
Something for everybody, a stay at Vilanova Park scores every time.
