We decided to do our 1st drive.to Spain holiday. We decided on the north of Spain and spent a number of weeks looking for a suitable villa for our requirements. Close to barcelona, beaches & sights. We decided on Angela's villa which was the best decision we made. On arrival Angela was there to greet us. What a lovely lady!!! She made us very welcome and gave a tour of the house. Firstly, wow....best equipped villa we have ever been to! The villa comfortably sleeps 12 people. We were 4 and our dog, so more than enough space for our requirements... the grounds were huge. The gardens were impeccable. Our dog absolutely loved it. She was in second heaven! Didn't need to walk her just walked her round the gardens... she was just upset she couldn't catch any of the wild rabbits!
The villa was perfectly situated for beaches, towns and sightseeing. Angela had left us maps, books and made suggestions on her favourite places which was amazing and helped us with our touring in the north of Spain.
You do need a car though, although close to everywhere it would not have been easy without transport. We visited, l'escala, L'ESCALTIT, llefranc, BEGUR, BARCELONA, PALLAFRUGAL, bisbal and many more.
When we stayed at the villa for days we had everything we needed. Space, swimming pool, satellite tv, gorgeous house, gorgeous gardens.games, books & wonderful views.
The only one down side is that the pool isn't heated. Having visited in May, the pool was cold so not easy to get into and stay in. If I had a suggestion, that would be to have a heated pool. I would pay extra for that as that would have made the visit perfect as we all love to swim and it just wasn't possible on our visit. I'm sure later in the year when weather is warmer it would be perfect.
I'm not sure there is much more to add other than if we do come back. Which we will, Angela's villa will definitely be first pick!
We spent a very pleasant 2 weeks in this very comfortable house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
There are some lovely long walks in the surrounding countryside if you're into walking - and it's a good base for exploring the surrounding area by car too - there are some good beaches maybe a 20-minute drive away. The village itself is very pretty and gets lots of visitors (especially when it's raining and everyone looks for something else to do instead of going to the beach!) and it was great to be able to just pop out of the door in the evenings and go for a short stroll before settling in a restaurant and then crawling back home afterwards without having to get into the car.
I would definitely recommend this if you're looking for somewhere relaxing and a bit different.
