Living in Sitges

A growing number of international families are moving to Sitges as an attractive coastal destination. Located just 40km south-west of Barcelona, this cosmopolitan, vibrant seaside town is perfectly situated between the Garraf Natural Park and the Mediterranean Sea. Its sheltered location means the area has a warm “micro-climate” that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities almost every day of the year when living in Sitges.

 

Expats in Sitges

The long wide promenade, stretches of clean, sandy beaches, vast national park and proximity to Barcelona make the city a favourite for many international families living in Sitges. It should therefore come as no surprise that an estimated 35% of local inhabitants are from Northern Europe, with a growing number of expats in Sitges. Sitges is also known for its tolerance and is home to Sitges Gay Pride, one of the biggest events of the year and one of the most important pride events in Europe.

 

Moving to Sitges with kids

Sitges is well known for its popular beaches, gastronomy, nightspots, golf courses, marinas and historical sites. Terramar Park with picnic areas and swings, sandy beaches, the waterfront promenade ideal for roller skating and biking and the local Natural Park of Garraf make living in Sitges ideal for families with children of all ages. Sitges is also close to some excellent international schools including The British School of Barcelona Sitges and The Olive Tree School and is home to many reputable local schools.

 

At Mumabroad.com we have put together a comprehensive directory of recommendations and advice from expats in Sitges, from the cost of living to healthcare and visas.
