My husband is currently in the process of securing a job in Barcelona and we are researching places to live with our 2.5 year old daughter within an easily commutable distance. Any guidance or experience on this subject much appreciated as we are clueless!! We have primarily looked at Sitges but have heard the traffic is bad and it's expensive?? Help!
Hi, well where to start? People commute in from many different areas - many of which are nice. I think it's really going to depend on your budget and where in the city your husband will be working.
Sitges is very nice but pricier than some other places as it's close to the city, popular with tourists and locals alike, and on the coast. Many commuters come in to Barcelona from Sitges by train not by car.
Without knowing your specific circumstances it's very difficult to advise but perhaps take a look at San Cugat del Vallés and suurounding area. It's popular with foreigners as it's a very easy commute, and of sufficient size to offer a good choice of schools, medical services, shops, restaurants, etc.,.
