It is very well located, near to Calonge which is a nice village with shops, cafes and a few restaurants. St. Antoni de Calonge, the nearest beach is only 5 minutes by car and has a long stretch of gold sand with a nice promenade area with many restaurants. Easy driving distances to the many other beaches in the area, all of which have lovely sandy bays. Palamos is a 10-15 minute drive and has a fantastic daily fish market in the harbour area and the town itself is buzzing with cafes and restaurants. Girona is well worth a visit especially the historic old town. We had a great holiday and were really pleased that we had chosen this villa.
