where to live? from Barcelona to Calafells

Hi there,

My family (husband and 2 young daughters) are moving to Barcelona in Feb next yr. We're trying to decide where to live - any advice?

Narrowed down the choices to:

My husband will be working in the centre so I'm worried about feeling a bit stranded with 2 young kids all the way down in Calafells. I understand its an hr travel but cheaper rents and bigger places, more likely to get a house than a flat.

We want to be as close to the beach as possible.

But I also want somewhere with a nice expat community so i can make friends straight away (don't speak Spanish yet!) and where I can feel safe with the kids.

Please help!!

Thanks so much!
