Bed and Breakfast with a difference in the fun and picturesque town of Sitges, only a half hour away from the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. Stay on board a vintage wooden sail boat moored in Port d'Aiguadolc, a romantic and secure location between two of Sitges' many beautiful beaches and a short walk from the town centre. This fantastic bed and breakfast offers an environment which is unique and peaceful, yet close to everything, together with the exclusivity of being the only guests on board. The private guest accommodation on board Willowmoon comprises the wheelhouse above deck, the cabin and en-suite bathroom below deck, and full use of the deck at any time, day or night. With a separate entrance to the guest accommodation, and your own key, you can come and go as you please, making it feel like a home from home.
The accommodation consists of the wheelhouse with a cosy seating area, mini-fridge and tea and coffee making facilities, as well as crockery and cutlery etc. 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.

Victor and Lisa are perfect hosts in one of the most beautiful spots in the world. They are friendly, helpful, and they will give you plenty of privacy. Victor makes delicious breakfasts every morning--he even made a particular local dish that we requested. One of the highlights of the trip was that we were the only guests on the boat. This made for excellent privacy and personalized service, and we had the deck to ourselves every evening. We stayed for our honeymoon, but this would be the perfect place for any vacation--it's reasonably priced and beautiful. Walking distance to some amazing restaurants, beaches, and architecture. If you stay, make sure to ask for the wine tour. They will drive you to one of the best wineries in Spain and you will get a small-group or personal tour of the facilities, plus a wine tasting with a trained sommelier. We would love to go back if we ever get the chance. -Jonathan and Ariel

We had such a lovely time, and Vick & Lisa made us feel really welcome. The boat was beautiful and we also went on a tour of the local area and a wine tasting which I would highly recommend. We ordered a romantic dinner on deck which was great as well. Fantastic holiday!!

My partner and I had a fantastic time aboard Willowmoon. The boat is beautiful and the owners made us feel very welcome with a glass of Cava on arrival. The exclusivity of having the guest area and the entire deck to ourselves was fantastic, and a full English breakfast certainly helped with that morning-after feeling! I will definitely be going back, and thoroughly recommend Willowmoon to anyone looking for a B&B with a difference

I know it's been awhile since Francois and I stayed, but I always look back fondly on our time there in May 2009. The breakfast frittatas were the best as well as the fruit cups. The tub was wonderful for daily bubble baths. Thanks for providing such great weather too! Sorry about forgetting to give you the cabin key back! Linda and Francois

Having been staying in the regular hotels for 4 months per year of business and leisure trips, it was a nice surprise to find “WillowMoon Bed and Breakfast” in the Barcelona Harbor. It has been a pleasant and unique experience staying there. WillowMoon is a cozy and lovely old-fashioned wooden boat anchored in the marina of Barcelona. The beauty of the history in her can be easily traced back in time, meanwhile she has been renovated to have modern and comfortable facilities. Since the room reservation is exclusively limited for one group of guests each time, it is perfect to maintain good privacy during the stay. The guest room is made of individual suite with a private entrance. Room is separated into two levels, a living/seating area on the top and bedroom/bathroom on the bottom. This separated arrangement makes the activities of the guests quiet and comfortable without interfering each another. Another special feature is its contemporary spacious bathtub that can overlook the nightly sky, which makes a romantic setting under the starring summer nights in Spain. The boat offers an amazing ocean view over the harbor as well as a city view of busy world along the sidewalk of the port: an interesting contrast in a harmony. Guests can get on to the most vibrant part of the city, or retreat back to the peaceful and isolated boathouse in a second. Breakfast and sunbath on the dock are relaxing and enjoyable. Overall, the decoration of the boathouse is elegant and tasteful. Located in the heart of Barcelona. Great safety with security guards, surveillance cameras and keypad gate pass to enter. The innkeeper Steve, is warm, very helpful and accommodating (and has a cute Scottish/British accent ¿). The service is proper and professional. The British style of breakfast is well prepared, nicely displayed, and delicious. I will definitely come back to WillowMoon again. Carolyn, from NIH-Washington DC and Boston, USA and Paris, France.

Seafood & Vegetable Paella
Vick makes a fabulous paella which has even been praised by Spaniards!! He uses a mixture of wonderful fresh shellfish together with olives, juicy cherry tomatoes and a selection of fresh vegetables according to season, together with his own secret ingredient for the wow factor. Meat can be included if preferred, and a vegetarian option is also available.
Calling all Wine Lovers Amongst You..... For B&B bookings of a week or more during July we will throw in a fantastic guided wine tour and tasting session absolutely free!! And that's not all...... should you decide that you wish to purchase any of the wonderful wines at the end of the tour (which is totally your choice but we are sure you will want to) then we will refund you 10% of the purchase price. We drive you to a local bio-dynamic, family run Penedes winery where you will be given a guided tour by one of the friendly and highly knowledge members of staff. You will be shown around various parts of the winery including the vineyards and the wine/cava cellars, and will be told about and shown many of the processes involved in producing their award-winning wines and cavas. At the end of the tour you will have an opportunity to taste a minimum of 4 wines/cavas (but often 5 or more!) together with a selection of delicious nibbles such as manchego cheese, fuet sausage and fresh baked bread. You will also be able to sample some of the wonderful extra virgin organic olive oil produced at Pares Balta, which really is a taste sensation! So don't miss out on this fantastic offer - book early to avoid disappointment!!
