The apartment is modern and well equipped and has great views directly onto one of Empuriabravas many canals. We fell in love with the town and walked miles around the streets and canals. We will definitely return one day. Really good value for apartment. We would also highly recommend a restaurant call Raco del Mar which is situated on the seafront. The food and service is excellent. Thank you Luc. Steve

Toddler pool is a real plus and the whole area around the pools is very safe for the young ones. Villa is well equipped with all the equipment necessary, including a large box of children's toys. Great restaurant, a bakery and mini market within 10 minutes walk, beach and larger supermarket about 30 minutes walk away. Owner and local agent very responsive and easy to do business with. An excellent choice if you want to stay in Empuribrava with young children!
