It is situated in a lovely quiet position, in an area just outside Calonge. The views are superb, looking across Calonge towards the sea at Sant Antoni and Palamos. Many afternoon was spent sitting around the sparkling pool enjoying the hot winter sun, with a cold beer or a glass of wine. We were met by Samantha, who looks after the Villa, any question you would ask, by text or phone, is answered quickly. You could not improve on Sam. Equally the Villa is clean and well maintained. Whilst we were there we visited a local vineyard, Mas Molla, well worth a visit, it is family run and one of the daughters showed us around the cellars, don't miss it. Also horsed riding at Hipica Unicorn, run by a Swiss lady who speaks English, very reasonable prices. Best to look on Google Earth for your directions, then very easy to find. There are a number of restaurants nearby and these are shown in a folder on site, we basically self catered, so I cannot comment on them. What I can comment on is the very friendly, and at all times helpful contact with Judy Anderson, the owner. And when you arrive at the Villa, you will find a folder containing a wealth of information regarding every possible question you may have of the Villa and the surrounding areas; Doctors, Dentists, Train times to Barcelona Etc Etc. You do not find this amount of terrific information in most rental properties. Would I recommend this superb Spanish Home to family, friends and anyone who reads this review, YES I would. Bother, I have just realised that I should have kept this review to myself, as I will now have problems in booking my future holidays there. Thank you Judy for everything. Tony Izzard

The house was comfortably furnished and well equipped with everything necessary for cooking all the lovely seafood available locally. The pool was a great hit with the children and the sea views from the balconies we're the adults favourite. Lots to see and do locally, good food shops and markets and lovely local beaches made this a very enjoyable holiday. We were very impressed by Richard's friendly and helpful emails and phone calls. Everything was well organised and extremely informative, with photos, instructions and recommendations that enabled us to feel at home straightaway.

Only a few minutes drive to the local supermarket and restaurants. Pool was a good size and the villa was very clean and comfortable.
