Wonderful Apartment in a great location

5 of 5
We were lucky enough to choose this apartment for our three month stay in Sant Feliu de Guixols over the winter months.Peter and Lucy have been great hosts. Because we planned such a long stay in one place we wanted to make sure that we were making the right choice.We had lots of questions at the beginning and Peter and Lucy answered everything quickly and providing us with lots of information.From our very first enquiry we struck up a good relationship with them and this was important to us as it gave us confidence we had chosen the right place for our stay. The apartment is large, very comfortable and stylish with everything that you need.Everything was of good quality and the whole apartment was nicely decorated. Bed linen changes were done on a regular basis (with fresh towels) by Carmen the wonderful local property manager. We felt relaxed and "at home" straight away.The apartment is ideally located close to town( about a 10 min walk to the centre and the beach) and it has great views over the marina and out to sea.The balcony is spacious with plenty of room for 4 people to sit and have a meal or a drink. We loved Sant Feliu.Its a real Spanish town with life all year round.It has some great cafes,bars and restuarants and a very pleasant pedestrian zone with small shops and alleys.There is always lots going on and Peter and Lucy were kind enough to give us regular updates on local events and celebrations over the Festive season and beyond.There is a fish and fruit/vegetable market most days and a full street market on a Sunday- quite an experience ! All in all we loved our stay.Thank you Peter and Lucy for everything that made our 3 month stay so memorable.

A wonderful family Christmas in a great villa.

5 of 5
Three generations stayed here for a week over Christmas. The villa had been left in a spotless condition, the lovely swimming pool heated ( We swam nearly every day), the central heating was on and a welcoming fire lit. The delightful owners had also put up Christmas decorations and a Christmas tree for us and were there to welcome us and to explain how the various services worked. The lay out of the villa works well, the grandparents sleeping in the double room on the lower floor over looking the swimming pool and the rest of the family upstairs in the other three bedrooms. We ate out for most lunches in lovely restaurants in surrounding villages and had dinner in the villa. The vlla was well equipped considering eight of us were eating in. My wife however felt there could have been a few more smaller dishes for serving tapas etc. In all the villa lived up to its website description, although the bedrooms appeared to be smaller than the photgraphs suggested, nevertheless perfectly adequate. We had particulaly good lunches in restaurants over looking the beaches in Llafranc and Tamariu which are very close to Begur and also further afield a great lunch at La Terrasa in Sant Marti d'Empuries further up the coast. We were lucky with the weather upto 17 degrees with sunshine most days, but quite cold at night. We would certainly recommend the villa and would like to thank Eloi and Ingrid for providing for us so well.

Beautiful villa - great garden and location

5 of 5
This property is in a peaceful location surrounded by the Gavarre hills. The house is well equipped including a table tennis table and swimming pool toys for children. The gardens are beautiful with a variety of seating in the sun and shaded areas. There are a variety of beaches (driving distance) and towns to visit and Barcelona is a day trip away. I would highly recommend this villa.
