Why Vicky Grandfield chose Calonge
We booked a holiday ourselves in Casa Sant Roc on the recommendation of friends who had stayed at the villa themsevles. As luck would have it, the owners had put the property on sale that week. As the saying goes 'we loved it so much we bought it' as our family holiday home. We had fallen in love with Catalonia on a previous holiday and even today find new and charming places to visit, with every activity we can think of within reach.
We found Casa Sant Roc was ideally located to easily get around and enjoy the diversity that Catalonia has to offer - the mountains, beautiful countryside, the sea, quiet coves/fishing ports (Palamos), busy holiday centres - with shopping, activities, waterparks etc (Playa D’Aro), cultural trials (Dali and Medieval legacies), and splendid cities (Barcelona and Girona), whilst the house itself is in a peaceful location near the traditional Catalan town of Calonge nestling under the Gavarres hills.
What makes this villa unique
We fell in love with Casa Sant Roc as the house has a large, level,south facing garden (quite unusual in this part of the world). The house is great for families - pool in the sun from early morning to late evening - meaning it is one of the warmest pools we have ever come across. With the added benefit of a paddling pool end and roman steps into the the main pool. A lawn for kicking a ball about on or playing badminton. Shaded areas to sit and several outside eating areas. The house has a terrace for sitting on, built in BBQ and outside sink together with outside dining room.
Guestbook comments from the owner
'we had a great time there and were really impressed with the villa, I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.' Mr B, April 2008
The Villa was absolutely delightful, with a wonderful swimming pool and garden which were perfect for our two young children. The property was very well equipped with lots of nice personal touches which made it feel like our home for the fortnight. I would highly recommend this villa to other families especially those with young children' Mrs B, August 2008. The Villa is a wonderful place to have a holiday, it is very pretty and is well furnished,
The garden is very large and private , we very much enjoyed the pool and Bar-B-Q area. The surrounding area has many things to offer beautiful unspoilt beaches , very good shops and many places of interest all within a short distance. Mrs S, Sept 2008
