Nice and quiet place to stay

5 of 5
Peter, the owner organized the whole process well and sent a lot of information, he answered quickly for every additional question. Well maintained apartment, equipped with the holidaymaker in mind (I was very pleased with the selection of the traveling books). We chose this apartment as a base to discover Catalonia: part of GR-92, Tossa de Mar, Girona, Besalu, Figueres etc. This property is located in a quiet, residential neighbourhood so it was perfect for us to rest after the long and active days. All of the family loved to stay here and the layout of this apartment is great (well-separated bedrooms, good-sized bathroom, living room at the centre of the flat, my favourite was the terrace, the children liked the balcony). The apartment was very clean and comfortable.

Charming beach front property in perfect location!

5 of 5
We had a fabulous long weekend in Blanes staying at Olga's apartment. She catered for our late check in (after midnight) - her dad welcomed us and showed us around the property, including leaving us a little welcome gift in the fridge! A travel cot was provided for my baby which was great. My 5 year old son absolutely loved the beach and the location of the apartment made it easy for me to pop back to pick up things for my 4 month old. There is a supermarket very close to the apartment and the fruit and vegetable market was really handy. There was lots of useful information at the apartment about Blanes and how to visit the surrounding area - we caught the train to Barcelona which was a fantastic scenic journey. My mother and aunt who also travelled with me cannot wait to go back :) Abbie, Belfast, Northern Ireland.
