Exclusive neighbourhoods in which to spend Semana Santa and the summer


Barcelona is home to several upscale neighbourhoods in which to spend Semana Santa (Easter) and summer. These residential areas are located a few kilometres from the capital of Catalonia, and thanks to their safe and secure nature, their large offering of amenities and location, have made them some of the best holiday destinations.

One of the main attractions of these high-end neighbourhoods is the high quality of the real estate, mostly upscale villas with pools overlooking the sea and the mountains. Although many properties are primary residences, others are used as holiday homes to enjoy with family and friends.

In addition, there are various sports facilities such as golf courses, tennis courts and equestrian centres. For water sports fanatics, there are some of the finest beaches and marinas on the Costa de Catalonia.
