The owner has taken care to plan the space well with a well laid out open plan kitchen, dining, living room. The property manager was extremely helpful. We will definitely re-book at this villa.

It was full of character and a proper Spanish Villa but with some modern facilities such as air conditioning. The owner takes good care of the property and has a great agent in Spain (John) who is available in case of any issues (not that we had any). The property is well located as it is in a quiet area but still close enough to all of the shops, restaurants and beach. There were 9 of us in total ranging from 7 years old to 73 and we all had a great time. The owner of the Villa was very helpful in the weeks/months prior to our holiday and the information she provided certainly helped make our stay easier. Empuriabrava was a lovely town with lots to see and do and we would definitely look at going back again in the future.
