Sant Cugat is a pretty town within easy reach of Barcelona and therefore very popular with families who are looking to combine easy access to the Catalan capital with a more sedate but still sophisticated pace of life. Located inland behind the iconic Tibidabo mountain in the beautiful rolling Collserola hills, Sant Cugat has excellent road and rail links, a wealth of restaurants and bars, excellent schools and sports facilities and a pretty and historic town centre.

The motorway provides quick access to Spain, the French border and the extensive ski region of the French / Spanish Pyrenees and Andorra, while Barcelona airport is also within easy reach.
