The villa is even better than the descriptions and the photos, and it was very clean, comfortable, and was fully equipped with everything we needed. The terraces, the pergola, and the large garden gave us plenty of room to ‘spread out’, and the pool and BBQ were perfect. Doug (the owner) and Samantha (the local agent) looked after us exceptionally well –‘thank you’ to them. We agree with all the other reviews – we had a five-star holiday… Highly recommended - we will be back !!!! Chris and family.

                                                                                                      Fabulous is not a word I use very often, however, the Villa can only be described as Fabulous. 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
