There are shady areas under the trees in which to eat or simply relax. Especially suited for families with younger children the garden is enclosed and the private pool, which is visible both from the terraces outside and the living room within, has a separate children's paddling pool end. The house is great for families - the pool is in the sun from early morning to late evening - meaning it is one of the warmest pools we have ever come across.

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

Lovely villa for a peaceful family holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The villa is well equipped with everything one could need for a family holiday. We had 5 adults and my 2 young grandchildren in our party and there was plenty of space for everyone. The pool, gardens and outside dining area were particularly appreciated, though the little ones also enjoyed having UK TV channels so that they could go inside in the midday heat. The villa is extremely convenient for getting around and there is a good supermarket just down the road with an excellent fresh fish counter for those who want to self cater, though there are several excellent resturants in the area - El Refugi in Romanya just 10 minutes drive along a country road is particularly recommended. I would recommend the villa to anyone who wants a relaxing stay in a lovely part of Spain.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 out of 5
The house was as shown on the pictures, very clean and well fitted. The garden was beautiful and well maintained, with a very nice pool (nice mosaic), ping-pong table and BBQ. Only the extra beds showed signs of wear and could be replaced.
A very good place for two families and kids!

Great villa

  • 5 out of 5
We were 4 adults and 5 children and had an fantastic autumn holiday. The house is well equipped with everything one could need for a family holiday. The lovely garden was well used by the children and the pool was very fun. I would recommend heated pool in fall. We had some days with "cold" weather, but could still enjoy the fantastic pool.

Would definitely consider using this villa again should we holiday in the region, and certainly recommend to friends and family.

Great Family Base to explore local area

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived to a well presented and spacious property that matched its description perfectly. Large enough to accommodate 4 adults and 4 children, with a big pool and multiple outside areas. Standard UK TV channels were a plus, as well as the DVD selection to entertain children on later evenings. Very well located for us to explore the Costa Brava region - our favourite being Port Bo. Would definitely consider using this villa again should we holiday in the region, and certainly recommend to friends and family.

Great villa in fab location!

  • 5 out of 5
We, 4 adults and 1 child, stayed at Casa Sant Roc in April and had a fantastic break. The villa is well equipped and the location is excellent for exploring this part of Spain.
It is a great escape from the hustle and bustle but with the benefit of easy access to a wealth of towns and beaches, that is if you can drag yourself away from the well kept gardens and superb pool!!
There really is something for everyone in this area - great scenic drives lead to pretty medieval villages or beautiful little coves, miles of coastal paths for those who prefer an afternoon stroll, fantastic cycling especially if you like hills(!), and plenty of wonderful beaches - La Fosca for the beach lover, Sa Tuna for a pretty tranquil cove are our recommendations.
We will definitely be making a return visit as there is so much more we want to see and do in the area.
Many thanks to the owner Vicky for the smooth booking procedure and for providing clear directions from Girona airport.

The medieval village of Calonge, 2km away, has all the amenities eg restaurants, weekly market. A restaurant in walking distance. Nearest beach is 5 minute drive away, which stretches from the fishing port of Palamos (where there are plenty of good fish restaurants) to the quiet family resort of Sant Antoni. Our personal favourite beach is La Fosca (a 10 minute drive) which is a small, natural bay with the added advantage of a gentle sloping beach into the sea and the beautiful natural cove of Castell with plenty of stunning costal walks. The pretty coves of Llafranc and Begur are a 20 minute drive away. Heading south you have a Water park at Platja d'Aro, a 15 minute drive away with slides and flumes. A bit further south is the Victorian town of Sant Feliu de Guixois which has a marina and family beach. Head inland and there are plenty of walks in the beautiful Gavarres National reserve. The hill-top hamlet of Romanya (just a few km away) has two restaurants with stunning views.

Other Activities: waterpark 10 minutes drive away, bowling
